Torrei Hart’s Skimpy Mixers launch
Comedienne Torrei Hart recently brought out a gaggle of fellow reality stars, socialites and executives to Boogalou Atlanta for the launch of her Cherry Limeade Skimpy Mixers. The ex-wife of Kevin Hart and star of VH1’s upcoming “Atlanta Exes” was flanked by cameras and cast mates as she debuted her low-calorie drink mixers. Fellow “Exes”stars Sheree Buchanan and Monica Ambrose walked the carpet as a pair (above) and looked stunning in body-skimming dresses.
Hart then walked the carpet herself with Toya Wright and her own personal guests who posed with bottles of her Skimpy Mixers flavor (below). The boisterous funnywoman then revealed why she decided to align herself with the mixers that she says mix best with vodka, orange juice and cranberry juice.
“When I met them I loved their energy and aura, they’re strong women who are doing the d— thing,”said Hart about the Skimpy Mixers creators.
The aforementioned Skimpy Mixers creators; Megan Toole, Krista LaMothe and Summer Lamons (below), were also in attendance to dish on their diet-friendly product meant to blend with vodka, tequila, whiskey, champagne or rum. According to Toole, the president and CEO of the brand, its inception began during a bachelorette party.
“We were on a bachelorette weekend at a pool party and we had a frozen Dreamsicle and they actually ran out. So when we left there we thought we’ve got to have another,” said Toole. When we figured out what was in it [however], we discovered that it was over 800 calories, so we decided to sub it down and make Skimpy Mixers.”
LaMothe, the vice president of Skimpy Mixers, then noted that Torrei Hart was a perfect fit to be the face of their Cherry Limeade flavor because of her fiercely independent spirit.
“Torrei’s a really strong woman with a great personality and she fits well with us because we’re all strong, independent women,”said the business exec.
In addition to Torrei’s Cherry Limeade flavor, which is available for $4.98 at Walmart, Skimpy Mixers are available in orange, berry lemonade, pineapple, sweet n’ sour and skimpy margarita.
