MONDAY MOCHA WITH ROBYN EXTON

Three more Mocha’s to go folks. I know I say this about all of the guests, but what I love most about the first Monday Mocha series is the diversity of guests. We’ve had equality in the sense that we’ve had the same about of females as we’ve had males. They all have an inspiring…

MONDAY MOCHA WITH SILKE BADER

MONDAY MOCHA WITH PETER PAIGE

On the eight Monday Mocha show, we still continue in Hollywood and chat to someone who has left a heart print on my journey. I first caught a glimpse of him on Showtime’s Hit Series, “Queer As Folk,” where he played the character Emmett Honeycutt.  From there, Peter Paige has gone on to be one of the…
