Today's special guest is mother, wife, philanthropist, author, television personality, political fundraiser and entrepreneurial titan, Lea Black. On most days, you will find her juggling all of these duties on her near surgically-attached smart phone.

A Texas native, she moved to Miami in the late 1980's and brought with her an unbridled passion and compassion, dynamism and focus, business acumen and civic responsibility, that together has left an indelible mark on Miami. Lea has a prominent role on the current “Real Housewives of Miami” She also blogs for the Huffington Post.

Her charity work in Miami began nineteen years ago when she founded THE BLACKS’ ANNUAL GALA, a yearly event unparalleled in both its success in raising money for its causes, and in its magnetism to attract A-list entertainers (Lil Wayne, Queen Latifah, Tony Bennett, Diane Warwick, Patti Labelle, ) who generously donated their performances.
Lea’s business focus for more than twenty years has at its core the health, beauty, and wellness of women everywhere. She has an unparalleled track record of success in developing and marketing beauty products.

In 2010 she co-founded and co-launched Andre Walker Hair Products with Oprah’s stylist. . Adding to her beauty repertoire will be a prestige skincare presentation that will debut in the Fall of 2012. And is in the process of publishing Lea’s Little Black Book, a fictional novel.

Perhaps her most challenging, rewarding and important role is that of CEO of the Black Family household.
Behind this ‘great woman’ are actually two great men: her intelligent and adventurous 11-year old son RJ, and her husband, famed criminal defense attorney, Roy Black, who finds that on most days, it is far easier to get the last word in the courtroom than in the family’s living room.
