The Southern Women's Show is April 24-26 at the N.C. State Fairgrounds. The annual event offers hundreds of vendors, live entertainment and cooking demos.

Fenoli will speak at 2 p.m. Sunday, April 26, on the Fashion and Entertainment Stage. He will also be meeting and greeting fans.

“Randy knows how to motivate and inspire an audience into feeling confident and we couldn’t be more thrilled to have him join us for our 30th anniversary show,” Southern Women's Show manager Katie Cronin said in a statement. “This year is set to be better than ever, and we hope women throughout the Triangle will join us for a one-stop shopping trip and girls’ day out!”

In addition to Fenoli, actor Peter Facinelli, star of Showtime’s “Nurse Jackie" and “The Twilight Saga,” will take the stage Saturday, April 25, at noon to share a behind the scenes look at his projects. He will also be doing a Q&A session.
