If you weren’t planning a day on the couch for Easter, you may want to rethink your plans (after church, of course). TV is planning a full day of Easter-themed or spiritual programming and The 2015 Stellar Awards is on that list.
It airs on TV One on Easter Sunday on TV One at 6 p.m. and features the reuniting of Destiny’s Child. Yup, all three of the DC singers took to the stage.
David and Tamela Mann were there and they say it was something special. They co-hosted this year and Tamela also took home an award for Special Event CD of the Year for Best Days Special Edition. The Stellar Award took place in Las Vegas this year.
“We turned Sin City into Saint City,” says David.
The couple, who’ve been married 27 years this year, enjoyed the Destiny’s Child reunion as much as anyone did.
“People are going to be pleasantly shocked,” says David. “It was a big secret leading up to it. Nobody had seen them. It was a closed rehearsal and it was like ‘Wait a minute, who?’ They did their thing.”
They say the Stellar Awards taping was good but long.
“Everybody gotta have church up in there,” jokes David. Tamela didn’t sing this year.
Mann and Wife, the Mann’s new family sitcom with Tony Rock and Vivica A. Fox, heads to Bounce TV on Tuesday nights at 8 p.m. It’s a Mann’s World is another one of their reality shows. It aired on BET.
If there’s a secret to the Mann’s long marriage, Tamela said its an easy one. Marry someone you like.
“I like this guy,” she says. “That’s my best friend.”
Here is a list of alternate airdates for the Stellar Awards.
