BET’s “Sistas” & “Zatima” Star Devale Ellis and his wife Khadeen both recently attended the Black Love Summit and we enjoyed every moment!
The two took new beautiful photos and talked everything Black Love.
“You’ve helped me with SO much over the years… but the latest— encouraging me to find and use my voice in a way I never have before. I love you @iamdevaleand I’ll never be able to express my gratitude to you for this beautiful life. Now, POP QUIZ: This song. Who? What? When? Where? Why?😆🦋🥰 #TheEllises#AppreciationPost
Black Love shared:
“Many things have changed for The Ellises since they filmed Season 2 of “Black Love Doc.” When they appeared on “Black Love Doc,” they were a family of four living in an apartment in Brooklyn, and now they’re a family of six living in Atlanta in a big, beautiful home still loving each other, still sharing their lives with each other and their followers that have grown by the millions. Devale is now an actor on the hit Tyler Perry shows “Sistas” and “Zatima,” and Khadeen is in her fitness era shutting down New York Fashion Week with Actively Black. They’re also now the hosts of the Webby Award-winning podcast “Dead Ass with K&D” and authors of the New York Times Best-Selling authors of their book, “We Over Me: The Counterintuitive Approach to Getting Everything You Want From Your Relationship.” After a five-year hiatus from Black Love Summit, Khadeen and Devale are back and sharing their growth and lessons in life and love with Black Love!”
