In the feel-good love story about redemption, Luckett plays Mercedes Wright, a famous, fast-talking relationship therapist. The latter has all the answers to fixing everyone else’s marital issues but is challenged by problems faced with her husband (Miller). With help from an angel (David), Mercedes uses holiday season magic for a Miracle Before Christmas. Currently shooting in Los Angeles, the film is executive produced by Marlon D. Haynes with casting by Dea Vise.
 It was the stuff dreams are made of! Vogue reports a surprise proposal took place at May 2’s Met Gala in New York City. Laurie Cumbo, commissioner of New York City’s Department of Cultural Affairs, got engaged to her partner, former New York State Assembly candidate Bobby Digi Olisa. In the midst of all the glamorous action going on around them, Digi Olisa suddenly dropped to his knee and asked Cumbo to marry him as they were walking up the steps. Everyone on the tricolored carpet cheered, while Cumbo, who was appointed by NYC Mayor Eric Adams, later told Entertainment Tonight that she had no idea this was going to happen. “I didn’t know it was going to happen tonight,” she said. “We’ve been through so much and this is such an honor and this is such a blessing.” In 2018, 2 Chainz also proposed to his longtime girlfriend Kesha Ward.
