Kelly Rowland’s personal trainer and bestie, Jeanette Jenkins is revealing how to keep off the extra pounds this holiday season! With Thanksgiving just three weeks away, we are all anticipating the dreaded weight gain, so here are three tips to maintaining your weight over the next several months.

“Number one, eat before you go to the holiday party,” Jeanette told HipHollywood exclusively. “So have a salad or a healthy meal before you go. You’ll have some food in your stomach, you won’t eat as much.”

“Number two, still try and get in two to three times a week of your workout. Still try to stay consistent with your training,” she said. “You can do that by writing your schedule for the week.”

In the film Megalyn Echikunwoke (Arrow) plays the president of a black sorority who is tasked with teaching one of the campus’ white sororities how to step for a charity competition. At first glimpse the film seems to be stepping into a can of worms — and had folks on Twitter up in arms, but the creators and cast told HipHollywood it isn’t about cultural appropriation but instead cultural exchange.

“There’s a strong political message, and there’s a lot of racial content,” said Nia Jervier. “But I think that the pill that may be difficult to swallow is dipped in honey, because it’s funny.”

What also helps is that producer/writers like Lena Waithe (Masters of None), Chuck Hayward (Dear White People) and Ben Cory Jones (Underground) are behind the project – so you know it’s woke.

“At the end of the day, Jamila the lead character in our minds she’s reaching over to show them a part of our culture. It doesn’t dilute our culture,” said Jones. ” And I love that we can take stepping and evolve that into issues of race and culture.”

Step Sisters begins streaming on Netflix January 20th.
