“People always ask me, ‘Oh you’re doing a movie with a female co-actor. Did you guys get along? Were there catfights?’ But when it comes to boys, they say, ‘Oh my gosh, that looks like a bromance and everyone got on so well.’ So I feel like over time, because women have lack of opportunity, we were pitted against each other,”

Singer Kelly Rowland looked spectacular in a hot pink, retro dress from Michael Costello. She had an onstage conversation with author & radio host Charlemagne tha God where she chatted about being a mom and addressed rumors of a Destiny Child’s reunion.

The best part of the event so many great brand and trying out new products! Did you know kids 6 and under can attend for free with the purchase of an adult ticket? Your welcome!
