July 13, 2018 -

The Girls Trip star took to social media to open up about her own internal pain that almost led her to down the wrong path and the lessons she learned to stay the course and stay alive. 

“One thing I’ve learned in my life over the years is that mental health is something we should practice daily, not just when issues arise,” the star of Facebook’s Red Table Talk show wrote via Instagram on Monday. Visit www.thegrio.com to read the full article.

The Thicklin Family Fire Relief

July 2, 2018 - On June 13, 2018 Chairsea, Dennis Sr. and Dennis Jr. Thicklin were victims of a horrific fire in Riverview, Florida. 

Thankfully, the family is safe and uninjured, but nearly everything in their place is unretrievable. 

Dennis Jr recently graduated high school and started an app development business over the summer. Unfortunately, he was not able to save his laptop, which holds all of his programming software. This is a set back for his business. He is to go to college this fall semester and he would appreciate the help to replace his laptop. 

The rest of the family, including daughters, Denisela and Raymiya belongings, must be replaced. 

Please help us raise funds to allow them to get their life back together, replace items and sustain them for this transitional period. Every little bit counts. Visit www.gofundme.com to donate.
