Dorit Kemsley is teaming up with Amazon to share the importance of the new Amazon Glow.
Christina Milian is partnering with Oral B and Crest to help to end oral health inequality. Quality Oral health care not only prevents bad breath but prevents tooth decay and gum disease. For Christina Milian, it is important especially for Black and Brown children to receive not only education about proper oral health care, but access to the necessary resources to maintain it.
Along with sharing the message of oral health Milian discussed the importance and value of Afro-Latinx representation. Today, the understanding of race, ethnicity, and nationality along with the lack of understanding surrounding the diversity of Latin America has resulted in improper representation and in many cases a lack of Black latinos being properly represented and allowed to tell their stories. For many Afro-Latinos Milian was one of the few public figures who was afro-latino on and off screen.
For Milian, being able to be that on screen representation for Afro-Latinos is a humbling experience and is something she prioritized throughout her career. With every role she’s portrayed she has weaved together her Afro-Cuban heritage into her character through incorporating an element of her own culture into her roles.
Advocacy for Black and Brown people isn’t new for the star. She has been an advocate for expanding Latinx representation for years and now her advocacy work is expanding to helping to end orla inequality. Today, the greatest victims of oral inequality are children of color, and Christina Milian’s partnership with Oral B and Crest is looking to change that.
December 15 Netflix will premier Selling Sunet spin-off series Selling Tampa
The new reality television series differs from the original in many ways such as the location, property differences, and the obvious difference of being a cast of all Black and Brown women. The Selling Sunset spinoff is the embodiment of #Blackgirlmagic, and is a refreshing contrast to the images typically shown of women of color on reality television. Selling Tampa shows the diversity of Black femininity, Black female empowerment, Black sisterhood, and Black professionalism.
The depiction of women of color on reality television has been critiqued since the genre’s inception, and shifting those narratives is an unexpected surprise. When deciding to film the show the cast unanimously agreed that the ability to highlight women of color in a professional setting and succeeding in a luxury market was important. Representation and how communities are represented is important, and the ability for young girls to see a group of women of color dominate the Florida luxury market is important to see.
Viewers will see that the Allure Realty team functions as a family and though they might have their disagreements, the love and support they have for each other can be felt both in the show and during their interview. The drama that occurs on the show, unlike its predecessor, feels similar to sibling arguments, rivalries, and makeups.
Founder and CEO Sharelle Rosado is a military veteran, and after serving her country she took the skills and dedication she learned and put that energy towards real estate. Today, Sharelle is one of Florida’s top producing real estate agents, and has created a real estate brokerage that gives other women of color access to the luxury real estate market.
The trailer can be found below, and make sure to watch Selling Tampa on Netflix December 15.
