Meet the four Black women from Savannah Georgia who were invited to the First Ladies Club.
Introducing mysterious Chance Cole:
She is best known for her cool, calm and classy demeanor, this chocolate beauty has the most impressive grace, dignity, and poise that Georgia has ever seen. Her mysterious smile and demure persona has everyone wanting to know a little bit more about Chance Cole.
Her Beauty: standing only at 5'3 and 105 lbs Chance Cole is considered the Black Barbie of Savannah. Her skin is smooth as a Hershey. Her very jet-black hair is so long that many have asked her if it was a weave. Her black coal eyes always sparkle and can light up any room. You notice her dimpled chin when she flashes you a modest smile. A smile that shows you her perfectly white teeth, making even the strongest man weak.
The Wealth: her father Victor Cole III quickly became Atlanta's most prominent defense attorney, after being selected by an International law firm, Victor Cole is one of the most sought after Black defense attorneys in the Nation representing international diplomats, famous celebrities, and global multi-national corporations. Currently Victor Leon Cole serves as a counsel for the biggest oil companies of the world. Her mother Elizabeth Cole is a former super model. Elizabeth Cole created a high-end fashion line that still grosses 50 million per year in net profits. Combined, their bank account totals 20 billion dollars.
The Popularity: a late start at the popularity game, it was in High school when Chance first received the welcome from the in crowd. She gained acceptance when she joined the cheerleading club. It was an uphill battle, but her mysterious charm, creativity and quirky sarcasm made her quickly climb the social ladder well into college and now in Georgia's high society as a whole.
Her Power: she is modest and kind, but underestimating her power would be very foolish indeed. Chance has a very critical eye; she can locate the chink in the strongest person's armor. She is a mastermind and insight to plan and execute with perfect precision. Once she grows angry, watch out! When battling with her it'd be wise to hide, as she doesnt strike outright, she always delivers a sudden and unexpected blow to her foes leaving them shaken and devastated. Her enemies often dont even realize that they are being destroyed until it's too late.
Miscellaneous facts: no one knows, but Chance's friends, that her Haitian maid is a powerful psychic that has lived with Chance for what seems like an eternity. Chance is a Virgo, born September 17, 1974. She likes her clothes imported from Paris, and only likes classic brands. She loves volleyball. She loves soccer. She hates basketball and football. While others reference God, she references the Higher Power. She is into metaphysical and the new age lifestyle. She likes yoga, meditation, chanting, feng shui, anything that is mystical. Groomed to vote democratic, study and protect her family's historical legacy, Chance has been accustomed to structure and being on a rigid plan.
Education: she has a J.D. from Emory Law School. She didn't want to practice law school but wanted to open up her own record label, but her father persisted that she followed in his footsteps.
Occupation: music editor at Driven Magazine.
Lulu Isabell Baptiste:
Meet the diva Lulu Isabell Baptiste:
She is best known for her fiery, feisty, and flamboyant attitude. Unlike Chance Cole, this buttery pecan copper beauty is unapologetic of her love for the spotlight. Lulu has such personal magnetism that she leaves every man, woman and child in a trance when she walks in any room.
Her Beauty: this glamour girl standing at 5'9 has a perfect hourglass figure roughly at 130 lbs. Her mane is always full and wavy and barely past her shoulders. No matter the hairstyle, she always has to have some type of curls in it. Her skin has a reddish copper glow. Lulu has a perfectly round face with high cheekbones. She is often regarded as a distinct exotic beauty causing double takes wherever she goes.
The Wealth: her father President Jose Baptiste is currently the President of Haiti. Jose Baptiste has the influence and protection of the Haiti community and the underworld. His wealth came from real estate investment grossing him a billion dollars a year even before his presidency. Ironically, Lulu's mom Lily Baptiste opposes her husband's politics and is more deeply connected with the grass root community efforts to empower women rights. Lily runs a charity program that helps women who are battered and who are facing economic hardships. Lily considers Haiti very outdated and too conservative in its politics. Their total wealth combined is 100 billion dollars.
The Popularity: misunderstood and shunned from junior high to high school. She became popular in college, where boldness is often celebrated. Or maybe it was because Lulu finally could understand and communicate in English instead of French. Or perhaps it was because the boys began to follow Lulu around like sick puppies? Whatever it was, her popularity began to soar, and wherever she was, she attracted a crowd.
Her Power: her attraction to luxury and extravagance lures other power brokers to her table. She doesnt seek out friends they run to be in her company. Her gregarious personality attracts others to want to copy her style, her walk, even right down to her infamous and elaborate gestures. Often these copycats cannot pull it off but boy do they try. Some confuse her flirty behavior as a sign of weakness, thinking that perhaps she would be easy prey. On the contrary, make this hot-blooded woman mad and heads will definitely roll. Unlike Chance, Lulu aggressively attacks her enemies and fights them until she sees blood. Make no mistake about it; you will know you were in a fight with this lady.
Miscellaneous facts: she still sleeps with the same stuffed animal that her deceased grandmother gave her at the age of three years old. She is very superstitious and doesn't believe that anyone should disrespect any Catholic ritual. She goes to service every Sunday. Even though she hates what the nuns wear.

Education: she has a B.A. in journalism and public relations. She attended Emory College. All four of the women wanted to start a record label but were forced to get a college education and pursue more traditional dreams. She'd much rather be planning parties and being on the red carpet as a publicist than being a journalist.
Occupation: features editor at Driven Magazine.
