Loni Love is a winner!
Team Loni Love swept Celebrity Family Feud with Steve Harvey, primetime on ABC, Sunday, June 28th to win $25,000 for Project Angel Food. Whoo-hoo!
The Emmy Award-winning host, comedian, author and Project Angel Food volunteer led “Team Loni Love” which included her “boo” James Welsh, his son Brian Welsh, her friend of three decades Rosa Brice, and Rosa’s fiancé Ken Browne to victory against “Team Ross Mathews.” Ross was adorable with his fiancé Dr. Wellinthon Garcia, his brother Eric Mathews, besties C Jay Jordan and Taya Farber. But “survey says” cute doesn’t win Celebrity Family Feud, Loni Love does.
When Loni and James volunteered at Project Angel Food on Thanksgiving this year, she told Executive Director Richard Ayoub, she was going to make our organization her game show charity beneficiary, adding slyly, “And, I win.” She was right!
“I had so much fun and was glad to help,” Loni told Project Angel Food after her victory aired on ABC.
The best moment of the night was when Steve Harvey asked, “Name a complaint women might have about a male stripper they at a bachelorette party?” Loni’s answer for the win was, “Not Hung!” The PG-13 reply made Ross blush and cover his face, left Steve momentarily speechless, and won Project Angel Food a whole lot of cash to feed 2,300 critically ill people each day.
Loni will present the $25,000 Celebrity Family Feud check to Project Angel Food on the upcoming Lead with Love 2021 telethon on KTLA 5,Saturday, July 17, 7-9 p.m. The two-hour fundraising special will also have appearances by Ross, Jamie Lee Curtis, Maria Shriver, Matt Bomer, Eric McCormack, Oscar De La Hoya, Javicia Leslie and so many more, with performances by Gloria Estefan, LeAnn Rimes, Vanessa Williams, Andy Grammer, Olivia Holt, Jewel and Phillip Phillips singing his hit “Home.”
