Regard Magazine Summer Issue Release

By: Yash Thadani

Summer is just around the corner, and the best way to start the season off is taking a deep dive into Regard Magazine’s new summer issue. To celebrate the release of their new piece, Regard Magazine partnered with Burn180 to throw a night to remember at the breathtaking Sofitel Hotel in Beverly Hills.

As people entered the venue, celebrities were greeted with a VIP red carpet entrance. Some of the talent in attendance included the likes of Top Gun: Maverick’s Jay Ellis, ABC’s Lost Elizabeth Mitchell, and lets not forget Regard Magazine’s summer cover, supermodel and actress Tricia Helfer.

360 Magazine had the honor of interviewing Tricia about her career, and how she was able to yield the level of success. Some advice that she offered to any self-starting individual was “travel as much as you can. I know it’s not feasible at all times, but learning about different cultures and environments can really open your eyes to new things.” It was her way of saying success comes naturally when you have an open mind.

As the red carpet welcomed new attendees, the current patrons were relaxing on the building’s outdoor patio, mingling and partaking in spicy palomas made with Tepozan Tequila. The tequila itself was phenomenal and included benefits of it being estate grown, and 100% additive free. To complement the drinks, Burn180 had presented full-body workout demos with their cutting edge technology. 

Safe-to-say, the night was one to remember, and the best part was nobody left empty handed. Public figures and media left with gift bags that had luxury products from brands like High on Love, Calyfx and Tiffany Scott Extensions. For more information on Regard Magazine’s Summer issue, click here!

Fatal Attraction via NBC Universal for use by 360 Magazine

The Fatal Attraction Murder

Oxygen, the home for high-quality true crime programming, debuts a two-night special event, The Fatal Attraction Murder, on Saturday, March 26 at 8PM ET.  Part two premieres Sunday, March 27 at 8PM ET. The special features an exclusive interview with Carolyn Warmus, as well as the Greenburgh PD investigator who worked the case from beginning to end; Westchester County, New York prosecutors; jurors; and reporters who covered the story firsthand. All reveal what they thought about the case then and how they view it now. 

When Carolyn Warmus was tried for killing her lover’s wife, Betty Jeanne Solomon, the unapologetic, attractive, young elementary school teacher from a wealthy family was named “The Fatal Attraction Killer” by the press.  The moniker, borrowed from the popular film due to the stunning similarities between the movie and the trial, was a label Warmus couldn’t shake.  The story of an affair that seemingly led to murder was a sensation, quickly garnering front-page news status and relentless coverage across television.  Reporters from around the world descended on Westchester County to scrutinize every word of testimony, every nuance of Warmus’ body language, and every detail of her wardrobe.

Throughout the in-depth special, Warmus, who never testified in her own defense on the advice of her counsel, shares her truth. She has always maintained her innocence.  With no physical evidence to support her guilt, those who investigated the case and worked to secure her conviction offer the circumstantial evidence that led to Warmus’ sentence. 

Viewers are left to decide for themselves if justice was ultimately served.  Was Warmus the unwitting pawn in a setup to distract police from the actual killer, or was she the obsessive femme fatale who murdered in cold blood?

“The Fatal Attraction Murder” is produced by Entertainment One (eOne) with Tara Long, Geno McDermott, and Ben Megargel serving as executive producers along with Lorri Leighton, who also directs. Steve Lee Jones serves as executive producer for Bee Holder Productions.

Dancing With Myself

Basketball legend Shaquille O’Neal and actress Liza Koshy join international superstar Shakira as creators on Dancing with Myself, NBC‘s newest dance-challenge series. A premiere date for the hourlong series will be announced in the near future.

Inspired by the millions tuning in to watch the latest dance crazes on social media, Dancing with Myself will see a group of everyday people compete each week in a series of high-energy dance challenges designed and demonstrated by the show’s celebrity creators Shakira, Liza, and Shaquille. Isolated in their own pods, contestants have a short time to learn the new routines, add their unique flair, and perform their hearts out in front of a live studio audience. As each round of the competition progresses, the creators on the judging panel provide instant feedback and choose their favorites to advance, along with the audience picks. But ultimately, it’s the studio audience that decides who’s the best dancer of the night and gets to take home the cash prize.

Shakira, Liza, and Shaquille will perform the new dance challenges created specifically for the show, which the contestants will have to tackle.  They will also enlist the talents of guest celebrities who will submit their own challenges.

As an NBA Hall of Famer, longtime sports commentator, entrepreneur and spokesperson, Shaq‘s larger-than-life personality has captured the hearts of millions for years. His dance moves have become a regular trending topic on social media.

Co-creator, executive producer, and star of her own YouTube Originals series Liza on Demand, and seen recently co-hosting “Dick Clark’s New Year’s Rockin’ Eve Special,” Koshy‘s humor and relatability to her legion of followers brings a fresh perspective to the lighthearted competition.

Model, actress and on-air correspondent Camille Kostek will join the trio as host. She began her career as an NFL professional cheerleader, performing routines at international events and teaching youth clinics. Kostek originally gained international prominence after landing the cover for the 2019 Sports Illustrated Swimsuit magazine in her rookie year alongside Tyra Banks. Kostek is passionate about using her platform to continue spreading self-love and inner strength through her #nevernotdancing social initiatives, where she encourages fans to express body positivity & self-acceptance through dance. In her role as host, Camille will also demonstrate new dance challenges and perform with the other creators. Dancing with Myself is produced by Universal Television Alternative Studio, a division of Universal Studio group, and Irwin Entertainment. John Irwin, Dave Kuba, and Eli Frankel executive produce for Irwin Entertainment. Tina Nicotera Bachman, Ben Thursby-Palmer, Jaime Levine and Shakira also executive produce. The series is licensed by NBCUniversal Formats, a division of Universal Studio Group.

Bravo‘s newest series follows the heart and soul behind the Atlanta restaurant Old Lady Gang (“OLG”) when Kandi & The Gang premieres on Sunday, March 6 at 9:00pm ET/PT. In the heart of the city, Kandi Burruss and Todd Tucker run an ever-evolving restaurant empire. Their Southern-eatery, OLG, named after the ‘Old Lady Gang’ consisting of Kandi’s mom, Mama Joyce, and Aunts Nora and Bertha, is busier than ever. The restaurant has been a fan-favorite with lines down the block and classic Southern dishes, but peeling back the curtains on this family-owned and operated restaurant reveals that mixing business and relatives can sometimes create a recipe for tension. For a sneak peek, please click HERE.

 Kandi & The Gang chronicles Kandi, Todd and OLG’s dynamic staff as they face a much-needed change at the restaurant while juggling their career ambitions, larger-than-life personalities, and personal lives. After being hit with a myriad of obstacles, Kandi and Todd step in with a plan to turn the tide. With tensions rising as family members don’t perform up to standards, a little tough love and a lot of restructuring will shake things up with the staff, whether they’re ready for it or not.

Get to know the staff at OLG

Kandi Burruss and Todd Tucker: For Kandi and Todd, OLG is not just a turn-up, good-time, neighborhood restaurant; it’s a business venture that allows them to employ loved ones, as long as they can keep the family in line! After focusing on building their restaurant empire over the past few years, Kandi and Todd jump in with a plan for strong leadership and a staff shakeup to bring the original OLG back to its former glory.

The OLGs–Mama Joyce Jones, Aunt Nora Wilcox, and Aunt Bertha Jones: Namesakes of the restaurant, the “Old Lady Gang” work at OLG and keep a watchful eye over the staff’s lives. Kandi’s mom, Mama Joyce, is the life of the party with all the tea, Aunt Nora is feisty but loving, and Aunt Bertha is the side-eye queen of Atlanta! The ladies are strong, opinionated, and speak their mind.

DonJuan Clark: DonJuan is Kandi’s right-hand man and oversees all of Kandi and Todd’s business ventures. As Kandi’s eyes and ears, he runs the operations for all her businesses as their general manager—which often puts him in the position to mediate between staff members. At the restaurant, DonJuan is ready to shift the culture from laid-back to buttoned-up. 

Phillip Frempong: An Atlanta native, Phillip has a long history developing restaurants. He was introduced to Kandi and Todd a few years ago, and began consulting at Blaze Steak & Seafood, the Burruss-Tuckers’ upscale restaurant across town. After his successful tenure there, Phillip moved to OLG guns “Blaze”-ing to get the staff back on track. Phillip tries to set a new tone at OLG, but the staff isn’t as receptive to his straightforward and polished ways as expected.

Shawndreca Robinson: Shawndreca is the first, and self-proclaimed original, hostess at OLG. She can be salty with a sharp tongue that occasionally gets her in trouble with management. Shawndreca has been known to run a minute or two late to her shifts, so Kandi and Todd bring in another host to help get things back on track. Outside of OLG – Shawndreca’s love life has a complicated tie to the restaurant because of her past entanglement with OLG valet owner, Patrick.

Dom’Unique Variety: Dom’Unique is the self-proclaimed “day one” bartender at OLG and dancer who has performed with Kandi on the “Welcome to the Dungeon” Tour and even with thee hot girl, Megan Thee Stallion. Her dreams of dancing professionally are her #1 priority, sometimes at the expense of her shifts at the restaurant. Dom’s close with her workplace besties, Torin and Shawndreca, and her budding flirtationship with a co-worker is becoming the talk of OLG.

Torin Mitchell: Torin previously worked at OLG as a manager, but with his event planning and interior decorating side hustle, he was spread too thin at the restaurant and left to run his events business full time. Torin has always wanted to see OLG succeed, and with his strong work ethic and commitment to going above and beyond, Kandi and Todd have invited him back as the resident events manager.

Brandon Black: An Atlanta transplant from Queens, NY, Brandon is the manager at OLG. Even though Brandon may be known as the workplace flirt, he is responsible for overseeing the staff, their ever-changing schedules and handling any issues that arise. Now that Phillip has stepped in to get the restaurant back on track, Brandon needs to maintain his professionalism with co-workers-turned-flings.

Patrick Dallas: Patrick is Kandi’s cousin and Aunt Bertha’s grandson. In the middle of the family business, he manages the OLG parking lot behind the restaurant and even has a few side hustles, from real estate to an all-natural luxury body essentials line. Despite his past as OLG’s resident ladies’ man, Patrick is smitten with his girlfriend, Safari Foxe, who is less than pleased to see Patrick and Shawndreca still crossing paths.

Brian Redmond: Brian is the head-ex bartender at OLG who’s back as a server. Ever the entertainer, Brian makes everyone laugh at their tables and on stage where he performs stand-up comedy. Outside of the restaurant, Brian launched his own business and he’s eager to integrate his specialty food items onto the menu at OLG.

Melvin Jones: Melvin has strong familial ties to OLG–he’s tight with Kandi, his grandmother, Bertha, and Cousin Patrick. At the restaurant, he’s the kitchen manager, responsible for keeping everything and everyone running according to plan. Melvin is a hard worker, but after running into a few issues, Todd has some concerns about the kitchen. Has Melvin been delt a difficult hand at the restaurant or will Kandi and Todd have to part ways with a family member for the greater good of OLG?

Rashard Roles: Rashard “Shardo” has been finessing the host stand across town at Blaze and is now lending a hand at OLG to spice up the front of the restaurant. Rashard dresses to impress both on and off the job. He’s bringing his class, elegance, and professionalism to OLG with the hope that it will rub off on certain coworkers.
