Rickey Smiley hopped in his luxury liner tour bus and brought Porsha Williams and the entire DISH Nation crew along with his RSMS fans, celebrity friends and family to gather at Sling Entertainment for the first annual charity event for the Rickey Smiley Foundation. Who knew Ed Lover, Bobby Valentino, Tameka Raymond, Mishon, singer Sammy, Demetria McKinney, and Headkrack had bowling alley game? Certainly, Gary with Da Tea may have surprised us but of course we may have guessed Ed Lover was nice with it. The rest, well I will let you ask them when you see them in these ATL streets.

I’m not sure which team was winning but it was great to see everyone haul their crews out to Norcross to Sling Entertainment where they had race car driving and great food in addition to the bowling alley. This was the perfect place for Rickey Smiley’s foundation’s first charity event. I’m not sure if there was more bowling taking place than the good times the DISH Nation family created. On one side, there appeared to be a soul train line and photo shoots and in the middle (Ed Lover’s lane) there was some serious competition taking place.

Meanwhile, on Twitter, the TV One season two “Rickey Smiley For Real” show was trending all night. Rickey’s son Brandon was at the bowling alley, but I didn’t spot his girlfriend. Although I didn’t see her, I’m still rooting for them to pull things together. Or maybe they’re just young and you know what they say: people either come into your life for a lesson, or a reason. Perhaps the season for their relationship has just ended. We will just have to keep tuning in on Tuesday nights on TV One and see.

Check out everyone else who showed up, after the break.
