[Not attending were Tika Sumpter who was in Mississippi shooting a film and Crystal Fox who was out of the country]. LTN cast on hand were Patrice Lovely, Palmer Williams Jr, Kendra C. Johnson, Andre Hall, Jonathan Chase and Darmirra Brunson. Tyler Perry Studios executives Ozzie Areu (president/executive producer), Will Areu (senior vice president/producer) and Mark Swinton (producer) were also in the building to celebrate the highly anticipated second season of these shows.
