Upon entrance to the Buckhead/Atlanta venue, guests and celebrities arrived to a rolled out “green” carpet event instead of the traditional red color always present, which was a tasteful touch. A vintage Rolls-Royce adorned the entrance as well, with a grand cavalcade of photographers to catch each guest’s arrival.
A recent article here on 11Alive News, mentions how Atlanta is now becoming a staple in the movie/filming community. Since 2009, we have filmed over 700 movies and films and been host to shows appearing on MTV, VH1, Bravo, Oxygen, and AMC.
The City of Atlanta is thrilled to see a new actor’s lounge that will cater to the unreserved talent that the city boasts. Actress, Terri J. Vaughn (Meet the Browns/Steve Harvey Show) and Multi-Media Personality, Rashan Ali, hosted a private invite only and who’s-who soiree for Vaughn’s newest concept–The Green Room Actor’s Lounge.
This event will also benefit two nonprofit organizations: Take Wings Foundation & Colored My Mind Global.
Politics and Pumps was able to brush “PUMPS” and elbows with some of the most revered and iconic individuals in Atlanta’s history. The Green Room is going to become another iconic feature of Atlanta, such as the Fox Theater.
The Green Room is revered as paying “homage to vintage Hollywood, and has a performance area, and unique romantic lighting–all in a relaxed atmosphere” states The Garner Circle PR. Atlanta’s own, Mayor Kasim Reed, delighted the evening by making a special presentation to the GL team.
11 Alive was able to catch up with Ms. Terri Vaughn herself and a host of other celebs and guests such as: Mel Jackson (Soul Food/Deliver Us from Eva); Jasmine Guy (A Different World); Lamman Rucker (Meet the Browns/Why Did I Get Married); Rodney Perry (The Mo’Nique Show); Kasim Reed (Mayor of Atlanta); Demetria McKinney (Meet the Browns); Chef G. Garvin (TV-One); Lisa Arrindell Anderson (Madea’s Family Reunion); Clifton Powell (The Brothers, Woman Thou Art Loosed); Soul for Real; Derek J (Celebrity Hairstylist); Lisa Wu Hartwell (Formerly of the Housewives of Atlanta); Chef Jason Ellis (Hell’s Kitchen); Tommy Ford (Martin); Derek Blanks (Celebrity Photographer); Angie Stone (Singer); Derek Anderson (Former NBA Athlete); Shannon Nash (Co-Owner of The Green Room Lounge); Kwanzaa Hall (Atlanta City Councilman); Roger Bobb (Bobbcat Films/Co-Owner of The Green Room Lounge); Malinda Williams (Soul Food/Daddy’s Little Girls); and music guests Anthony David; Alexa Lieberman; Nicci Gilbert (formerly of Brownstone); and Soul for Real…
This event really was a star-studded affair to remember, even the high-heeled pumps made grand appearances well into the night…
