Issa Two For One Convo With Celebrity Chef Bren Herrera and Lifestyle Coach Julissa Bermudez
In a recent “Virtual Sip & Chat” hosted by CLEO-TV, journalists was allowed to gab with Celebrity Chef, Bren Herrera as well as famed Lifestyle Coach and Television Host, Julissa Bermudez.
It’s all about the ethos and beautiful traditions!
While doting on the importance of Latinx Heritage month, CLEO-TV launched it’s culturally mollifying platform with two new series, CULTURE KITCHEN AND IT'S ME, JULISSA!
First and foremost, I’d like to say that I love both women. Their BIG energy and gracious schmood really set the bar. They are my Si-STARS… can I say that without sounding like a weirdo prowler? Yes, I totally can! Furthermore, if I tune-in to watch a show, I want to view women that embolden me to step up my game with their grace and enthusiasm, hats, hairstyles, the backdrops of their lives. I don’t want to stare at the raving ice princess that’s impudent behind the scenes (really mean and disingenuous), because BIG ENERGY, and vigor, it never lies. Energy will tell you a lot without having to say much at all.
In researching and watching both women during the press conference, I totally got the kindred feels.... I’m saying this next statement while slowly backing away from the computer monitor after the junket, with tears rolling down my cheeks... “Me and you, us never part. Makidada. Me and you, us have one heart. Makidada. Ain’t no ocean, ain’t no sea. Makidada. Keep my sister away from me.”
People that saw the movie “Color Purple” will get that.
The captivating Julissa Bermudez is an industry fav, who hosted the cult show, Jersey Shore: After Hours. She co-host the bomb interactive music segment, BET 106 & Park from 2005 until 2006, so she is no stranger to commanding the spotlight. In fact, her newest show, “It’s Me, Julissa, will amplify that through ups, downs, lessons, and burgeoning success with her newest business venture as entrepreneur. She created an all-natural line called República Skin, a product with nostalgic whiffs of the Caribbean. It took Julissa 2 years to make and VETT the sugar scrub— she took careful consideration when packaging, while including a bamboo scoop so consumers aren’t digging into the jar, which can soil a good product with nasty little microorganisms that live on the skin and under the nails.
”Okay! I love the idea. I’m gonna give that darling accessory a Queens finger snap in the air because you thought outside the box.
“Thanks so much for considering us GWORLS,” Julissa!
