More and more celebrities have been taking advantage of the quarantine time, doing new things live on social media.
While stay home orders have been extended and more businesses are closing rapidly, it has become a challenge for families to remain stimulated, and amicable while limited to their homes.
Celebrities like Ciara and her husband Russ were among some of the first to begin live videos, reaching out to fans to connect and discuss all that is currently going on in our world.
Ciara and Russ used their first live to open up to fans about their marriage, first date, first kiss and how they met.
Unscripted or directed, the couple offered an authentic view of their home life in their own way. Fans learned that Ciara is very mild, shy at times, loving and sentimental.

This Wednesday however, Ciara decided to introduce her new series, Women’s Wednesday, in which she intends to host weekly live video sessions, talking with fans about various ‘girl talk’ and other topics.
In her first episode the star posed questions to the audience to learn how they feel about being quarantined with spouses.
To help her discuss the first question, Ciara picked one lucky fan to go live and discuss things with her.
She jokingly advised that fans try to be ready to be on camera and talk openly with her.
Ciara spoke with 4 different women during the first live, and she learned that plenty of fans are enjoying the time with their spouses for the most part. Others, like her third fan, who connected from London, are out of work while their spouses are still being required to go out amid the chaos of all that’s transpiring.
