HONESTLY SPEAKING

 

Amanda Jane is a new face in the media world with a fresh approach to a longtime passion. Amanda is the host and co-creator of the upcoming talk show Honestly Speaking currently in production and scheduled for release in 2019. This New York based show, Amanda will be speaking to people from every day walks of life covering a variety of topics from relationships to causes to music to business to “the matter of life.” You name it she needs to talk about it. Amanda is labeled “the great communicator” and known for using her coined talent of “adaptive rethink” by friends and family. Her grooming for this role can be traced back to upbringing and life experiences. Amanda immigrated to the United States in 1968, lived in the Bedford Stuyvesant section of Brooklyn, New York but never felt like she truly fit in with her family. At the age of 35 she discovered the woman who raised her was not her biological mother when her brother traveled from England to find her and reconnect their family. He obtained her last known addresses on public record from the internet for $50. Amanda is a passionate artist who is consistently striving for perfection in all her endeavors. In addition to filming her T.V series she is currently co-authoring the autobiography of hip-hop icon Ralph McDaniels.
