VH1’s leaked promo pic for the proposed Ray and Janay Rice reality show, entitled
“Drunk in Love with Ray and Janay Rice.”
Just weeks since the NFL lifted Ray Rice’s indefinite suspension, a leak from Viacom offices has showed that pioneer in trashy reality shows VH1 has proposed a show based around the relationship of Ray and Janay Rice. The leak is from an unknown source but the first (leaked promo title has been released.
Titled “Drunk In Love with Ray and Janay Rice,” VH1 is broadening their line-up of love and relationship reality shows with a couple whose relationship has been in the public eye as of late and with much scrutiny. Details are still sketchy, but “Drunk in Love” has been said to be produced by Adrian Peterson and Michael Vick. The unknown source also claims that the show is in production now and is set to air during the 2015-2016 football season and show the couple as they deal with the ups and down of celebrity couple.
VH1 is no stranger to weird or inappropriate reality shows, like “Dating Naked,” but has the network gone too far? Tell us what you think in the comments below.
Now that the top twenty has dwindled down to just ten, the anxiety has to be plaguing the contestants as one by one, they are eliminated until one is crowned Sunday Best. Dorinda Clark Hall joined Donnie McClurkin and Tye Tribbett for an explosive opening performance. I thought it couldn’t get any better until McClurkin rushed out to the judge’s table to hand the microphone to Kierra Sheard, who rocked the foundation. Then Yolanda Adams was handed the mic. The mild-mannered, soft-spoken judge broke out in a powerful song. It couldn’t have gotten any better, except Kim Burrell sang as well; I don’t need to tell you that it was a fantastic performance. That performance, which was the best the season so far from anyone on the show, felt like it was the season finale opening. Awesome!
Wes Morgan performed at the top of the two hour finale tonight of Sunday Best. Yes, we are at the end of Sunday Best where Tasha Page Lockhart and Kefia Rollerson battle it out to be crowned the season six winner of Sunday. Not only do they win the title of Sunday Best but they also win a recording contract with RCA For Your Soul Records, a cash prize and a brand new Ford Focus. The stakes are high in this last week. The tension seems to be lifted when Kirk Franklin comes out looking like he should be standing on a corner selling newspapers.
Molly Music, Tamela Mann, and The Walls are set to perform in tonight’s episode. After a sneak peak of the newest Paula Patton movie, Baggage Claim, Kirk Franklin introduced Molly Music. He performed Fire for the crowd. It wasn’t a powerful performance like Wes’ at the top of the show but I saw some people grooving to the music. I admit my foot was tapping.
After last week’s upset elimination, Sunday Best has to prove it’s making the right calls when it comes to their singers. As Love and Basketball’s end credits rolled, I contemplated who would improve their performances from last week and who would continue to dominate.
The show opened up with a performance from Kim “The Voice” Burrell. She soothed the ears of those watching with her soulful voice and was quite the contrast to Kirk Franklin’s usual loud clothing. ‘Don’t Count Me Out,’ she sang, a strong title that echoes how the remaining four contestants feel; it was also the world premier of that song. Franklin’s clothing has toned down once again this week. He wore a nice white vest with a plaid collard shirt.
Kelly Price opens up Sunday Best this week as the top six contestants sing for their chance to win a multitude of prizes. At the end of the show, two people will go home. Kirk Franklin came out with a respectable wardrobe; beige suit with more buttons than old ladies’ sewing collection. A major improvement from last week’s abysmal multicolor blazer. Venold Junior Johnson was the first to perform. He performed a reggae song (What A Friend We Have In Jesus), which sounded fantastic.
Mentor Kim Burell told me he need make the audience enjoy song. Judges Yolanda Adams, CeCe Winans, and Donnie McClurkin were in agreeance; Adams said he was the epitome of what Sunday Best is. Paula Champion was next to perform. She sang I’m Still Here and she knocked her performance out of the park. The best performance of the night, indeed. Adams said she depth of soul and Winans thought her performance was a blessing.
Just when you thought you have heard of every reality television show their is, MTV is set to air Real Fast Food Workers of Los Angeles. Following the lives of fry workers, burger flippers and cashiers in the Southern California, Real Fast Food Workers of Los Angeles will tell the story of our economies unsung heroes.
Coming this Fall…
United as One opened up and the show and had the crowd on their feet, as usual. Tasha Cobbs threw down the gauntlet with her voice in small intermission foryt eight minutes into the program. It was truly a great opening. Kirk Franklin came out soon afterwards looking like a stick of Italian ices. He wore white, gray and bright, sun yellow blazer with pants and shoes to match. I had to talk about it. Once again, two people are set to go home at the end of the night, but more on that later. Yolanda Adams, CeCe Winans, and Donnie McClurkin judge the eight finalists this week and Kim “The Voice” Burell acts as a mentor to all of the singers.
David Michael was the first singer to come out and do his thing. Burell told him to watch his words and his practice performance sounded like he was a glorified backup singer.
We’re near the end of this season’s run as we hear the top ten gospel singer’s give it their all in order to win BETs Sunday Best. A lot is on the line; a car, recording contract, and a cash prize. The ten singers: David Michael, Tasha Page Lockhart, Tyler Little, Paula Champion, Odell Bunton, Jr., Joshuia Drumm, Terrill Hall, Jamel Lewis, Venold Junior Johnson, and Kefia Rollerson had to sing out their hearts in the name of the Lord in order to continue on through in the competition.
Jonathan Nelson opened the show and had the crowd pumping with Strong Finish. He had the audience and the judges (Donnie McClurkin, Yolanda Adams, CiCi Winans) up on their feet praising. Each one of the competitors were mentored by Kim Burelle. The first to perform was Tyler Little. Burelle told him that he needed to pace himself as he was rushing with his notes. He went up on stage and sang where Donnie McClurkin told him, once again, he has swagger. He was told that he would see the end of the competition.
I know that NBA Players spend a lot of time practicing, but why was Lamar Odom sleeping during a child custody hearing? Yesterday, the 33-year-old NBA star was awaken by a court officer who caught Lamar peacefully snoring in court. Odom, who has two kids by TLC’s “Starter Wives” Liza Morales, is definitely in need of some of R & R. Here are a few reasons that may explain the sluggishness.
1. He spent the previous night watching all three episodes of Starter Wives.
2. Lamar had to console his brother-in-law Kanye West during a rant over MTV’s Hottest MCs List.
3. He has been too busy trying to keep up with the Kardashians.
4. Chris Paul and Lamar have been spending too much time trying to make a better “Harlem Shake” video than the Miami Heat.
5. Lamar has been working on PST most of his career and he is not accustomed to early mornings in NYC.
6. Lamar and Dirt Nowitzki spent this past weekend text fighting over complimentary tickets to the Michael Jackson Cirque du Soleil show in Las Vegas.
7. Rob Kardashian and Lamar got lost in a marathon of Call of Duty the night before the custody hearing.
We have The Real Housewives of Orange County, Miami, New York City, Atlanta, New Jersey, and Beverly Hills. To be honest, the only thing I could think when I heard about BET’s newest series, The Real Husbands of Hollywood was “Ugh. No more.” But one of the show’s stars, Kevin Hart, promises it will be much more than what you would expect on first glance.
It all begins with the 2011 BET Awards when Kevin Hart, Nick Cannon, Nelly, Jermaine Dupri, Anthony Anderson, and Bobby Brown all sat down and satirized the Real Housewives reality television obsession in a sketch entitled The Real Husbands of Hollywood. The sketch was filled with slap-stick humor and parodied what it was like being married to a high-profile woman in Hollywood.
Along with Nick Cannon, Boris Kodje, and Robin Thicke, Kevin Hart is taking The Real Husbands of Hollywood sketch to the next step: a full show on BET. And the show is promising. While we seem to be stuck in a drama-filled reality tv rut, The Real Husbands offer an interesting and unique look at the way we watch reality tv – by mocking it.
Despite its similarities in name to the hit reality series and the fact that the cast is comprised of famous husbands, The Real Husbands of Hollywood is NOT a reality show. It is a mock reality show, similar in style, Kevin Hart says, to Curb Your Enthusiasm. And if there’s one thing America loves as much as reality television, it’s mock reality television. With the success of shows like Arrested Development, which has a cult following, and Parks and Rec, The Real Husbands of Hollywood has the opportunity to put BET on the map. The show’s star-studded comedic cast leaves little room for failure, so long as the show avoids falling into a boring and stereotypical rut. I, for one, look forward to seeing what sort of comedic relief the show can bring to the world of reality television.
The Real Husbands of Hollywood premieres January 15th at 10ET/CT on BET.
