“Diva Diaries,” is about five friends who have been the topic of discussion for years, and the desire of other women hoping to mimic them. Whether conquering the business world, juggling men, or fighting wars for our country, nobody does it quite like this crew of self-proclaimed high-profile women. But, when you’re on top, you can expect that drama and nay-sayers will be close by. It takes a certain kind of woman to stand tall through it all, and these Divas do it with style, grace and class.
The festival runs from August 5 through August 31st.
