This is the new page for the A1A morning show as we re-vamp a few things. Thank you for your continued support and I hope you both welcome and look forward to this change. Great things to come <3"
VEE had not been not on the air all week. Added SIMMONS: "We have begun a search to find a new superstar co-host to join CHEREE."
