The Book of Dad – “Real stars will always shine”

A few of them continue their careers on into adulthood; seasoned, experienced and selective about assignments, affiliations and sustained acquaintances. One issue for them is that when we see them, we tend to forget that they are real people, dealing with dreams and realities like the rest of us. Today we “Hob Nob” with a guy we know as “Cockroach” from the “Cosbys”, and “Cole” from “Martin”, the accomplished entertainer Mr. Carl Payne. We get into Carl’s head on the serious side and discuss the industry, his initiatives and parenting; don’t fret, there is also plenty of humor…
