On Wednesday, November 9th, guests at G Lounge enjoyed a sneak preview of the premiere season of Tyler Perry's "For Better or For Worse" along with an appearance by the cast themselves!

Camden native actress Tasha Smith, in town yesterday promoting her new TBS series, Tyler Perry's "For Better or Worse," returned to her alma mater, Camden High School, to speak with students. Smith also stopped at the Camden Creative and Performing Arts High School.

The actress was joined by Michael Jai White, with whom she co-starred in two Perry films, "Why Did I Get Married?" and "Why Did I Get Married Too?" The pair reprise their roles in "For Better or Worse," which premieres Nov. 25.

Smith, who also appeared in "Couples Retreat" and "Jumping the Broom," told us she was glad to have time to "see some friends and my old stomping grounds."

White shared a funny story about doing a play called "Cheaters" a few years ago at the Merriam Theatre. "It was a play that had some steamy stuff so these women were a little bit primed," says White, who starred as "Spawn," and also appeared in "The Dark Knight" and "Black Dynamite."
