The-Perfect-Match-Movie-Poster

“Charlie” [Terrence J.] has the perfect life, the perfect job, and the perfect friends who gave him a “perfect” challenge… date one woman in hopes of finding THE PERFECT MATCH. The following new movie was Directed by Billie Woodruff and Executive Produced by Queen Latifah.

About ‘The Perfect Match’, Charlie is a bachelor who’s convinced that relationships are dead even though his sister (Paula Patton), a therapist, tries to tell him otherwise. His best friends bet him that if he sticks to one woman for one month, he’s bound to fall in love. An unconvinced Charlie takes the bet because he believes that he’s immune to love, until he crosses paths with the beautiful and mysterious “Eva” (Cassie Ventura). Charlie is sure that he will win the bet and prove his friends and sister wrong, so he rises to the occasion and takes on the challenge. Turning on his irresistible charm, Charlie coaxes Eva into a casual affair, but soon finds out that Eva has turned the tables on him. Unsure of what to think or how to feel, he finds himself trying to navigate in a foreign territory. Now, Charlie is left questioning whether he may actually want more than just a one-night stand.

Check the all new trailer for the official movie starring: Terrence J, Paula Patton , Cassie Ventura, Lauren London, French Montana, Donald Faison, Dashcha Polanco, Joe Pantoliano, Timothy Delaghetto, Brandy Norwood, Kali Hawk, Beau Casper Smart, also with star studded cameos by Robin Givens and Jessica White.

Watch: Brandy Confirms That Ray J Is Engaged, Talks About Her New Show ‘Zoe Ever After’ On Wendy Williams [Video]

Just wrapping up her New York broadway slot in Chicago as “Roxy” and the performance tribute to Babyface on the 2015 Soul Train Awards, Brandy Norwood heads back to the Big Apple, and stops by The Wendy Williams Show.

During her visit, the singer/actress talked about her new BET sitcom Zoe Ever After, starring herself alongside actor Dorian Missick who plays her ex-husband, “Gemini Moon”. The show makes it’s debut on January 5th at 10 pm.

Wendy then switch over to the juicy question of: “Is Ray J really engaged to Princess?”. Brandy, being just as clueless as Wendy, answered the question as she had to call Ray the day before the show just to confirm, because she knew Wendy would ask her. In other words, she and the family didn’t about it at all.

Brandy says:

They are really engaged and I told him that I was coming here, and I didn’t know…like i’m really mad about that — how do you not tell your sister that you’re engaged?

In the cover story, Brandy speaks about her long-lived career, finding her purpose, what makes her happy, starring in the Broadway show CHICAGO, Whitney Houston and more.

Quotes from Brandy:

I don’t view myself as a celebrity. It’s all about the intention. It’s not about me. I thought that it was before. But, now I know that it is about other people. Who else could it be about?

I stepped into something that I was born to do and I didn’t know it. I walked on the stage and my entire life reawakened. It’s about making people feel good about themselves and helping people dream. The vain stuff, like the pictures I took for this magazine and being in shows, I love! But it is all just the polish. I’m not a celebrity. A star guides. There is a difference.

About Whitney Houston:

I think about her every day,” she admits. “She is everywhere. She is with me all the time. She’s always there. Whitney was the possibility of dreams coming true. I loved her. I loved her personality. I loved the way she danced. I loved her smile and her voice.
