A couple of weeks ago, I had the pleasure of listening to Chris Rock’s mom, Rose Rock, speak at a gala hosted by DeAmor Magazine. The gala was lovely and the Hors d’oeuvres were delicious! (I’m such a foodie).

Miss Rock was everything you’d expect Chris Rock’s mom to be and more– hilarious, stylish, and spunky. She’s 70 years old! She offered great tips about raising children (she’s raised 27 children! 10 of her own and 17 foster children) pursuing your dreams, and loving yourself, knowing your worth and true love.

Would you believe that at first Miss Rock didn’t support Chris Rock’s dream of being a comedian? She said he got his start in the comedy world through a dare! A few of his friends dared him to perform at a local comedy venue and the manager thought he was so funny, he was booked a spot!

She opened the floor up for Question and Answer, and I asked did she think she was anything like the way she was portrayed in Chris’s show, Everybody Hates Chris. Watch the video below to find out what she said!
