(Atlanta, GA) – It was another breathtaking event for Bravo TV’s Married to Medicine cast member Dr. Jackie Walters as she presented her annual 50 Shades of Pink Fashion Gala and Fundraiser.
Dr. Jackie is an award winning OBGYN and two-time breast cancer survivor so this is an event that’s very personal and dear to her heart. In its’ 6th year, this year’s theme was Winter Wonderland and designer Leon Bramer draped each model in original couture pieces.

What’s unique about this fashion gala is the model roster is comprised with both supporters and survivors or warriors as Dr. Jackie calls them – embodying the foundation’s mission of enhancing the emotional and physical well-being of breast cancer patients and their families.
A night of fashion, impact and inspiration, Dr. Jackie’s cast mates Dr. Simone and Dr. Heavenly were also there to support along with radio personality Sasha The Diva and 200 other attendees. It was a grand affair indeed.
And as the month of October continues, let’s carry on with raising awareness and pushing a healthy life agenda. Breast cancer is something that does not discriminate and there have even been cases with men being diagnosed. Speaking with Dr. Jackie, she commented that she had a patient that was just a tender 18 years old. It’s imperative to practice healthy habits stay current with self exams, mammograms and clinical exams.
As Dr. Jackie always says, early detection is the best protection!

(SL) – Atlanta is turning into the Hollywood of the south partly in part because of people like Oprah Winfrey filming their projects in the city; and actors like Keith David taking up residency while working. Greenleaf has become one of the most popular shows on television and Keith David stars as Bishop Greenleaf in the church drama.
Greenleaf is just one of over 150 credits David has under his name. So, it was no surprise when District 2 City Councilman Kwanza Hall wanted to honor the Emmy award winning actor with a proclamation and award from the Mayor’s Office for Film and TV.
He also declared April 30th Keith David Day. The presentation took place during that Arts and Icons Master Event for working and and aspiring actors. Led by Keith David and hosted by Sytonnia Moore, So You Wanna Be An Actor was a 4 hour workshop designed to give actors the foundation of basics and tips to hone their craft and work side by side with a legend.
After the workshop, David surprised the audience with a performance with his Jazz band! I know right…who knew? The man is synonymous with talent. And as expected, it was good…really good! He hopes to take up residency in Las Vegas and once the word gets out about just how good he is..I’m sure he’ll be booked in no time. In the meantime, you can catch him Wednesday nights on OWN playing James Greenleaf. The mid-season finale airs this week!

Bezuidenhout picked each fabric according to the couture piece that she had in mind and it resulted in a gorgeous set of 60 pieces that would give any designer a run for their fashion in any given season.
