It was a star-studded event on Monday night as stars made their way down the black carpet at the LA premiere of, Tyler Perry’s The Single Moms Club.
Nia Long, the star of the film, arrived in a stunning black gown with a deep plunging neckline. The star appeared to be on cloud nine as she posed in the sexy ensemble which showed off her tone legs.
In a refreshing twist during the carpet, stars gave authentic praise to hardworking single moms. And for some of them, that meant giving themselves a pat on the back.
“I only have one son, he is 22-months old, but I got to play a mom to five kids and that was insane,” CoCoa Brown told HipHollywood. “I have friends who are single moms to like four kids and I had to call all of them and say ‘girl, I am so sorry if I ever said I couldn’t babysit. That is some serious work you’re putting in.’ I think single moms should be applauded.”
The comedy, which also stars Tyler Perry, Nia Long, Amy Smart, Wendy McLendon-Covey and Zulay Henao is about a group of single mothers who create a support group to help them with the crazy things life throws their way. For Henao, she might not know what it means to be a single mother, but she knows what it’s like to grow up in a single-parent household.
“I come from a broken family. My parents were divorced when I was 14-years-old and I can say my mother, I thought she was super woman,” Zulay said. “This movie is so relevant because the divorce rate is so high and because there are so many single parents, not just single moms. This is a very important subject matter and I am glad to be part of it.”
HH also caught up with actress, Jenifer Lewis, who attended the premiere to simply support who friends. As one of Hollywood’s favorite TV moms, and a single mother herself, the actress made sure to give credit where credit is due.
“I don’t know that any of us our single, even if we are single because we have such great support groups,” she explained. “A group of girlfriends, that’s what it’s all about. We come together and we raise our children … I am a single mom.”
