"A talk show was never something I want to pursue," said
television producer LaVonda P. Rouse ("Mr. Belvedere") about "The Blend"
talk show launched October 3, 2018 at www.TheBlendTalk.com. "What I found was the
need to provide information from people that look like me."
"The Blend" will cover issues of the body, mind and spirit and their
hosts include Jewel Diamond Taylor, Dr. Tabatha Carr, Dr. Gloria Chance and Dr. Peace Amadi.
"We are spirit, mind and body. If one is not aligned it throws the whole self off,"
LaVonda stated about why the shows issues will surround the spirit, mind and body. "I was looking for
certain women. Outside of personality these women are respectful and humble...and they
understand why we are doing the show."
Producer of the show is Ahleea Zama and co-executive
producer with Rouse include Bever-Leigh Banfied. Dr. Amadi is a psychology professor,
Dr. Carr is a women's health expert, Dr. Chance is a psychologist and Taylor is an emotional
