Celebrating the release of Baggage Claim on DVD, producer hosts a Ladies Night Out
Released on DVD Tuesday, February 4, was the memorable romantic-comedy of 2013 with the star-studded cast – Baggage Claim. To celebrate, some of the film’s cast and crew threw an intimate “Ladies Night Out” at the picturesque Skybar in Hollywood, California.
The event featured food, drinks, a pampering station, and prize giveaways but what truly delighted the guests was the panel discussion.
Moderated by KJLH radio personality Adai Lamar, Baggage Claim actress Jennifer Lewis and the film’s executive producer Lyn Talbert, gave sage advice on life, love, and relationships. Lewis, a diva in her own right, communicated with her charm and wit, some of her toughest learned lessons.
“I have found, that really the only thing you can do for anyone, really, is to live your best life,” she advised, with all the warm maternal emphasis we’ve come to see from her over the years through her on-screen characters. She challenged the group of ladies to look inside themselves for deliverance. “You want an answer? Look in the mirror and ask yourself…and tell yourself the truth. If you know a relationship [isn’t] right, step back, don’t waste your life! Enjoy your youth.”
Both Lewis and Talbert’s advice was well received by the crowd, who maintained a steady soundtrack of shouted out cosigning.
“Be honest with yourself,” Lewis reiterated and left the group with a feeling of empowerment.
The evening was that of female camaraderie. A fitting way to introduce the DVD of Baggage Claim – a film addressing real life issues faced by women.
