Santa Monica,CA – A star-studded affair unfolded at the MTV Movie and TV Awards at the Barker Hangar this past weekend. Celebrities like Jada Pinkett-Smith, Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson, Tiffany Haddish, and Melissa McCarthy arrived in style for the event, and showed off their best summer beauty looks on the red carpet.
Spice, the reigning queen of the dancehall, stepped in and rocked the red carpet while representing the Caribbean community. She donned a bold yellow gown which she describes as bringing the sunshine from Jamaica designed by Shalay from Atlanta and signature blue hair. As the queen she is, she looked ravishing and stunning while walking the pre-show paparazzi corridor with confidence and grace. Spice is one of the cast members of Love & Hip Hop Atlanta that made an appearance at the awards to represent the franchise in the new established category called “REALITY ROYALTY.” Other reality TV shows in the category such as Jersey Shore: Family Vacation, The Bachelor, The Challenge and Vanderpump Rules, were among nominees.
When the time came for recognizing winners, the VH1 show gave the others a run for their money and LHH ATL came out as a winner with Spice stepping up to accept the recognition alongside KarlieRedd, Bambi, & Lil Scrappy.
In true Spice fashion she made her way to the spotlight and proceeded to give a speech in full out Patois.
