Mingle Media TV and Red Carpet Report host, Linda Antwi, were invited to cover the masquerade-themed red carpet “40th” birthday celebration for actress/comedienne Kym Whitley, star of the hit docu-series, “Raising Whitley,” on OWN at the Rain Nightclub in Studio City. We also found out after arriving and setting up for the red carpet that the party will be featured in an upcoming episode of Raising Whitley (probably entitled “Maskymrade”) so you might see us on her birthday episode.
