As many of you know I just started sharing some of my dark past regarding domestic violence. October is Domestic Violence Awareness month, and while I am freaked out about how much was revealed, I am deeply honored to have contributed to this exceptional documentary film from the Notoriety Network. Sharing my story among these beautiful fellow SHERO souls has been life changing. When you reveal you heal! These are incredible women who have not only survived horrific experiences in their past, but they are thriving! Their presence is powerful, the stories are real, and you will be blown away by the sheer tenacity and strength of these beautiful spirits walking among us. Also, a special thank you to all of my supporters during the SHERO Foundation Gala this past February. Your support or presence at the Gala meant the world to me.
Find the Notoriety Network on Apple TV, Amazon Fire, Android TV, Roku, the IOS Store, Google Play Store, and of course online. The #SHERO project documentary direct link: #SHERO project. The documentary will be available for anyone to view for the next month. After that time, use the code “SHERO” to view it for free.

Our children are on digital devices more than ever because of COVID19 and are placing themselves in more precarious situations. I am honored to join forces with Internet Sense First founder Charlene Doak-Gebauer to help families through this crisis by providing Charlene’s book, “The Internet: Are Children In Charge?” and inspiration from my book, “Hollyisms.” We have to own the responsibility of keeping our children safe online.
