Last night (June 13), bloggers, journalists and editors gathered at the lavish Trump SoHo Hotel in Manhattan to screen the kickoff of HawthoRNe season 3, Jada Pinkett-Smith‘s dramatic TNT series.
Hosted by Overbrook Entertainment, TNT, JustJared.com and 135th St Agency, the event was a complete success, with food, drinks, laughter, and even a few tears. Sadly, Jada was unable to attend due to her harrowing schedule Monday, which included a stop by The View to discuss how “crazy busy” she and husband Will Smith are these days. You can watch that clip below.
The tears weren’t because we missed Jada last night though. It was simply because there was so much intense drama on the first episode of HawthoRNe!
If you’re a fan of the show, then you know it opens with a beautiful wedding – as Tom (played by Michael Vartan) and Christina (Pinkett-Smith) finally get their sh*t together and make things official. The wedding is pure bliss for Christina, but it doesn’t take long before things go awry, and various characters go through extreme highs and lows in the course of 24 hours.
Joining the cast this season is Marc Anthony (who guest-starred previously on the series), Derek Luke and Lauren Velez. Thankfully, Vanessa Bell-Calloway is back as Christina Hawthorne’s on-the-job frienemy Gail, but some things have changed for her. There are some characters missing in the first episode too, so hopefully as the season pans out to answer some questions for us!
In addition to HawthoRNe season 3 debuting on TNT at 10:00pm June 14, you can also find Jada Pinkett-Smith on the cover of Uptown Magazine. The photo shoot (you can see one of the images above) is absolutely stunning!
