Oscar’s Viewing Party // Arise 360 Behind The Scenes
Ever wonder what’s it’s like setting up for a live TV segment? It’s super fast, pressure filled and beyond exciting.
Follow me as I take you behind the scenes shots from my Oscars Viewing Party segment on Arise TV!

You can see the show live in the Green Room; however I generally like hanging out in the studio before my segment. That day we were in the Green Room and captured this moment. Adonis and I excitedly squealed then took a #selfie :o)
Grammy-winning gospel group Mary Mary, stopped by the studio and were on air being interviewed as we quietly set-up the cocktails. The ladies and their camp were so gracious and kind helping me get dressed in the green room.
Adonis making the cocktails pretty. We literally created the Lupita cocktail on the spot. I can always count on Adonis to carry out my vision without much direction. Apparently he speaks “Evil Genius.”
I know you are probably wondering why there is spray butter on the table, huh? Well… it’s our little studio secret! lol
The production team moves my table in and brings in the final touch… cocktails! This is also the moment I was praying I did not have a J Law experience. Tripping over my gown and smashing my table display would not have been sexy… funny, yes… sexy, no!
