UPFRONT featuring Michelle Williams, Chad Johnson, Rob Hardy, Bre-Z, Shea Pegues and more (AUDIO)

Ray Cornelius with Shea Pegues of "Ready to Love"

This past weekend's edition of UPFRONT was star-studded indeed. I had the opportunity to catch up with OWN stars Michelle Williams and Chad Johnson of Chad Loves Michelle. They both stopped by CAU last week for an intimate conversation with Mass Media Arts students and discussed their highly publicized relationship, faith, family, Hollywood and much more. 

UPFRONT also hit up the red carpet for a VIP screening of the CW's new dramatic series All American. The show airs on Wednesday nights and follows Spencer, a football star from South Central L.A. who is recruited to Beverly Hills High. I caught up with the show's stars Bre-Z and Sean Baker as well as director Rob Hardy and the show's inspiration - Spencer Paysinger. 

Closing out the show is my one-on-one with Ready to Love star Shea Pegues. She opens up about appearing on the new OWN reality series and answers those burning questions about Atlanta's dating scene, the 20:1 ratio between men and women and much more.  Ready to Love airs on Saturday evenings at 10 pm EST on OWN.
