The Hollywood Shuffle was on the scene last night as OWN (Oprah Winfrey Network) and Tyler Perry Studios started the year off with a screening of Season 2 of their hit shows The Haves and the Have Nots and Love Thy Neighbor. Over a hundred press and tastemakers packed the Tribeca Grand Screening Room to get a sneak peek of Love Thy Neighbor (LTN) and a full episode viewing of The Haves and the Have Nots (HHN). Cast members in attendance included John Schneider, Renee Lawless, Gavin Houston, Peter Parros, Angela Robinson, Jaclyn Betham, Aaron O’Connell, Eva Tamargo and Tyler Lepley.

Check out flicks from the spirited night.
