  • Resist pressures of conformity, love yourself, embrace your flaws, and unlock YOU, Loni Love.

    13 MAY. 2024 · Two-time Emmy and Three-time NAACP Image Award-winning television Executive Producer Rushion McDonald, interviewed Loni Love.  Cohost of SiriusXM's Café Mocha, Loni Love hasn't taken the typical path to becoming America's favorite straight-talking girlfriend and comedian. She was not the child of Hollywood legends, and she never wore a size 00. Rather, she grew up in housing projects in Detroit, more worried about affording her next meal than going on a diet. When she moved to Hollywood after graduating college with an engineering degree, seeking to break out in the entertainment world, there was nothing that would convince her to eat the kale salads and quinoa bowls that her colleagues introduced her to, which looked to Love like "weeds my grandma used to pay me a dollar to pull from her yard."See https://omnystudio.com/listener for privacy information.
