New Talk Show to Offer Holistic Advice for ‘Sistahs’

D.C. Native Jewel Diamond Taylor Targets Low Self-Esteem

First of a two-part series

An inspirational hour-long, web TV talk show will debut on Wednesday, Oct. 3 which promises to provide a fresh approach and purpose in its programming — uplifting and encouraging women to be intentionally whole.

Among the panel of four African-American experts, each of whom employ more holistic ways to discuss the spirit, mind and body as they impact significant lifestyle issues which women face each day, is Jewel Diamond Taylor — a spiritual life coach known as the “Self-Esteem Doctor.

Unlike other talk shows, the four panelists take an unapologetic approach, offering advice based on the whole person, acknowledging that everything that happens to a person is the result of past experiences or events in the present.

“The Blend,” created and produced by veteran entertainment executive LaVonda Rouse, will take on contemporary issues with a fresh view that goes beyond the obvious. Additionally, the show’s robust social media platforms will provide a space for viewers to discuss and share their experiences while learning more about the show’s topics.

“‘The Blend’ is setting out to provide our viewers’ food for the spirit, mind, and body,” Rouse said. “The premise for this show is that we are all inherently spiritual beings. We are digging deep into the real you, going beyond the surface, offering insight into the issues that you don’t see with the naked eye. We are looking at how these issues affect the whole person.”

The featured panelists are: Dr. Peace Amadi, a psychology professor, speaker, media expert, and writer; Dr. Tabatha Carr, leading authority in the field of women’s health and wellness, focusing on the extremely powerful and effective tools of natural medicine; Dr. Gloria A. Chance, a former CIO who is a creativity architect and innovation psychologist; and Jewel Diamond Taylor, “The Self-Esteem Dr.”, a frequent conference keynote speaker, an emotional wellness educator, a women’s life coach, wife, mother, grandmother, sister, spiritual faith builder and author.

In the second part of this feature, we will share Taylor’s amazing journey to become one of the first African-American women to break into the male-dominated arena of self-esteem coaches in the U.S. and abroad.
