Get excited! The ultimate chick flick With This Ring premieres this weekend. And this morning the leading ladies Regina Hall, Eve Cooper and Jill Scott stopped by the “TODAY” show to chop it up about their new telefilm and finding love in their personal lives. Get it inside….
We are days away from the premiere of the LIFETIME original movie With This Ring, starring Regina Hall, Eve Cooper & Jill Scott. And we already know it’s going to be good.
Directed by “The Game”‘s Nzingha Stewart, With This Ring is a tv adaptation based on the fabulous book “The Vow” by Mitzi Miller, Angela Burt Murray and Denene Millner. And it tells the story of three career driven women who are bestfriends that make a promise, after attending their friend’s NYE wedding, to get married within 1 year. The telefilm was executive produced by “Being Mary Jane” star Gabrielle Union and “EXTRA” co-host Tracey Edmonds.
This morning, the leading ladies made an appearance on the “TODAY” show looking absolutely stunning as they posed on the wedding backdrop in honor of their new film. The ladies dished to the morning show hosts about the cultural pressure to get married and how it has affected their own personal lives.
Regina, who recently starred in Think Like A Man 2, explained how her personal life was parallel with her character. She revealed she actually made a pact with her girlfriends once, in real life, vowing to be married by a certain age or they would have to marry “that guy” who was always into them but they weren’t really that much into him. She said she never made it down the aisle, but she’s currently still living the single life.
Get On Up actress Jill Scott chimed in on a time she gave a guy an ultimatum to marry her. And he had to propose before the new year (similar to the movie). She said he ended up proposing to her on Dec. 30th, but realized it was a terrible decision. So, she too, is living the unmarried life.
BUT…one cast mate IS actually married in real life. Eve married British entrepreneur Maximillion Cooper in June 2014 with a lavish ceremony in Ibiza, Spain. She gushed about her new title as Mrs. saying, “It’s honestly really good. It’s different but I love it. I’m really happy”. Sweet.
With This Rings premieres Saturday, Jan. 24th on LIFETIME at 8/7c.
