    Learning to Love Yourself & Love Life!

    in Motivation

    I have long called February LOVE MONTH! There is something about that Hallmark Holiday, Valentine's Day that I feel very fond of. Anytime where love becomes the focus, our hearts become the focus and people are drawn closer to each other, I'm all in! 


    What do you think about when you think about love? I think of God. I think of family & friends. I think of my favorite episodes of the Golden Girls! We probably all think of different things. But tell me this, do you ever think about how you do or don't show love to yourself? How do you think about yourself? What thoughts do you hold? What behaviors do you show? I want to talk about it. Join me today on The Smiley Notes.

    Actress Noree Victoria

    in Entertainment

    Noree Victoria, Baltimore, Maryland native, has been active in the creative arts her entire life. Starting out writing imaginative short stories and plays, she completed her first bound children’s book at the age of 7. Loving the arts and academics, during her middle school years, she used creative and intellectual outlets to escape her sometimes-challenging upbringing in Baltimore, opting to spend summers in special programs on college campuses studying drama, creative writing, and painting with the help of government subsidized grants and academic scholarships. At the age of 16, once again longing for a life beyond the borders of her home city, she petitioned her school board on her own and successfully won their approval to bypass her senior year, and go directly on to college, earning a Bachelor’s Degree in Creative Writing and Biology, and subsequently a Master’s Degree in Information Technology. Noree completed her Master’s program with a 4.0 GPA. However, coming from an entertainment family with modest means-- kin to the late jazz musician Eubie Blake, and sister to Emmy nominated actress Penny Jerald-- the lure of acting proved way too overpowering for her to neglect. After completion of her academic studies, she stepped out on faith to pursue her creative passions in the performing arts full time, gaining recognition by winning the Best Actress award at AMTC’s Shine, a nation-wide talent competition drawing over 2000 contestants each year. After being discovered at AMTC, Noree was contacted by the New York Conservatory for the Dramatic Arts and offered a scholarship to study under the direction of some of the most esteemed instructors in the business, taking on Scene Study, Advanced Film Combat, Voice-over, Michael Chekhov technique and Shakespeare Presentation.

    When Jesus Says Yes: A Biblical Discussion about 2015's Stellar Awards Show

    in The Bible

    Each year, the Stellar Awards recognize the achievements of high-profile gospel music artists and personalities.

    The Biz With D: Interview w/ Demetria McKinney & Diamond Strawberry

    in Music

    Demetria McKinney is a triple threat in the truest sense of the term. She is an award-winning actress who has played diverse roles on the big and small screens as well as the stage. She is a gifted singer with a rich voice requiring zero studio enhancements. And she is a skillful songwriting who thoughtfully expresses emotions in a way that instantly connects with listeners.


    Widely known for her role as “Janine Payne” on the hit TBS sitcom “Tyler Perry’s House of Payne,” which has taped over 254 episodes and received five NAACP Image Awards for Best Sitcom, Demetria can currently be seen on Bravo’s “The Real Housewives Of Atlanta” as the newest cast member. Mckinney also has reoccurring roles on Lifetime’s “Devious Maids” and TV One’s “The Rickey Smiley Show” sitcom.


    Even though her acting career keeps her very busy, Demetria always makes time for her first love: music. Over the past few years she has recorded and performed with artists such as Musiq Soulchild and Anthony David. Demetria has also opened for Anthony David as well as such R&B mainstays as R. Kelly, Dwele and Tank.  Now, after spending time perfecting her craft and tapping fully into her musical voice, Demetria is set to release an EP – “Officially Yours” – to give music fans just a taste of what she has to offer.

    Ep. 5: Catching Up with Susan Smiley

    in Family

    Ten years ago we were introduced to Susan Smiley, her mother Millie and her sister Tina. Out of the Shadow was produced and directed by Susan. Premiering in 2005, it provided an unprecedented insight into her mother's serious mental illness, her own journey and how she and her sister have coped. The response to the film was enormous, receiving wide-spread press coverage. It continues to be required viewing in many university courses and graduate schools of public health, psychiatry, social work and nursing. It has received many awards, been translated into 12 languages and has been viewed countless times on PBS stations across the country. Tonight, we speak with Susan. She'll reflect on how the film impacted her life since she went public with her very personal and painful story. We will also discuss her current activities and interests.
