SHE IS SO FANCY: IGGY AZALEA GETS A GIG WITH MTV

 Rapper Iggy Azalea has been getting a lot of flak from lots of spectators and her hip hop peers for not writing her own rhymes. Say what you will about the blonde bombshell, but while all of you are talking Iggy will be adding a new title to her resume. Iggy has been chosen to hot MTV’s House of Style.

Yes House of Style is coming back. I remember watching it when I was a kid and Cindy Crawford was the host. Reviving this show has not been easy, this is MTV’s second attempt at bringing it back. During this season on House of Style, Iggy will visit the best vintage stores in LA and some music video sets as well.

House of Style will premiere on August 4th on MTV.com

Can the fancy rapper pull this off?

OH TYLER: TYLER PERRY HAS A NEW DRAMA SERIES

With a title like If Loving You Is Wrong, the world can assume this show is going to be filled with tons of drama. Tyler Perry has done it again, his new drama series If Loving You Is Wrong touches on relatable topic. The couple will face family problems, betrayal with-in their circle of friends and lots of loving.

Tyler’s hit series The Have and the Have Nots has gone beyond many expected, the drama is so addictive and it keeps your heart racing. I wonder if this new drama series can deliver the same punch. If Loving You Is Wrong will premiere on OWN on September 9 @9pm.

Will we love it?

 

SHE’S BACK: FLAVA FLAV’S OLD FLAME GET S A REALITY SHOW

Reality star Niiki “Hoopz” Alexander has inked a new deal with Oxygen. Hoopz along with her sisters are getting a reality show. Yes folk that right, if your sister gains reality star fame you just might be able to get a piece of the action as well.  The show is properly titled It Takes A Sister. Which will follow the family during their transformation from city girls to country belles.

Living on a dude ranch in in Knoxville, Tennessee will come with it’s fair share of sacrifice for the ladies. Not only are the sister’s living with Hoopz, but all of their kids will be living in the ranch as well. Hoopz comes off as a family orientated person, but will this be too much for the reality vixen to bare?

We will just have to wait and see.

KING JAMES DOES MORE THAN JUST PLAY BASKETBALL: LEBRON’S BRINGS NEW SHOW TO STARZ

Straz is on a roll right now. First they get a dynamite series from 50 cent and  his team. Now they are giving Lebron James the opportunity to help produce a show as well. Survivor’s Remorse is totally going to become a trending topic. BET’s The Game better watch out. While their story lines are getting dry, Survivor’s Remorse will be taking over the court. The comedy series is about a young  basketball player who has signed a life changing deal with an Atlanta Basketball team.

Once he realizes he is not dreaming, dealing with his reality creates all  kinds of personal issues for the player. His past just will not let him be free and it starts to mess with the young player. Unfortunately we have to wait until October to see Survivor’s Remorse, but until then check out the trailer.

ALL IN THE FAMILY: THE JACKSON FAMILY GETS A REALITY SHOW

Have you ever heard of the network REELZ? Me neither, but I will be looking more into this network, the producers over there are genius. Producing a reality show for the Jackson family offspring is going to put them on the map.

Honey these folks have some serious drama. The show will follow the siblings/cousins throughout their journey outside of the Jackson bubble. Escaping the Jackson compound is nothing. But the hooking up in this family is a little crazy. Please check my chart below.

And that’s the way they all became the Jackson bunch…………………………

The Jackson reality show will premiere on November 18th. Sorry folks we are only getting six episodes. We all know that we are going to need way more than that.

Call them crazy if you want, but I will call them BRAVE. For the family to agree to do this show takes gumption. I will be watching.

 

 

ATTENTION ALL COSBY KIDS: IS BILL COSBY RETURNING TO TV?

When I was a kid I did not know my father. So I would always imagine what a great father would look and be like. I didn’t have to think for to long, thanks to the Cosby Show. Dr. Huxtable aka Bill Cosby was a dotting dad who didn’t take any mess. In my  mind he was my dad. Well daddy is coming back to TV.

At the young age of 77, Mr. Cosby still has some tricks up his sleeve. You know the saying never burn bridges, well this is why. Thank to Mr, Cosby’s longstanding relationship with NBC the network  is welcoming him back with open arms.

Family sitcoms seem to work for Mr. Cosby and if it isn’t broke don’t fix it. NBC is currently writing a show that would follow the same story line, this time Mr. Cosby would be the patriarch o f his family. Being that times have changed so much, I am pretty sure there are plenty of family issues that the previous Cosby show didn’t get to cover. Hey NBC I have a show topic, Bill’s find his granddaughter on Facebook twerking. Let’s see  how he would handle that.

The show will be taped in front of a studio audience, while 3 cameras will capture the footage. Attention audience department I think you should book an auduience of much older and younger adults. Ask people to come with their grandparents. Older people know what great talent looks like, today’s youth like to laugh at things  that are just not funny (like people fighting online, in a shakey video). Family time needs to be revived. When I was a kid the whole family would sit together and watch a sitcom together, that barely happens these days. I miss the good ole days.

Mr. Cosby’s new show should debut next summer. I will keep you posted has production starts.

 

THE FACTS OF LIFE: KIM FIELDS AND LISA WHECHEL

Hallmarks latest movie to be released on the network is For Better or Worse. Former The Facts of Life co-stars Kim Fields and Lisa Whechel star in For Better or Worse. The movies story line is based on the best selling novel by Diann Hunt. Whechel’s character is a wedding planner, and her business is jeopardized when this annoying divorce lawyer approaches her clients. These two bickering professionals, argue so much they eventually fall in love. I’m a hopeless romantic and I am excited about this movie.

It’s great to see Kim and Lisa are still friends and colleagues. Did you know that Kim Fields just had a baby at the young age of 45, go girl.

For Better or Worse premieres in July 19 @9pm .

ARE YOU WATCHING THIS: MARRIED AT FIRST SIGHT

Move over eHarmony, there is a new way to hook up with someone. Better yet getting married to a total stranger is the new thing. #itotallyidontknowyoubutiwillmarryyou Thanks to the FYI Network we all can see some total strangers meet and marry each other within a few hours. Married at First Sight follows  six soon to be couples through their journey to tying the knot.

Call them adventurous or call them crazy but these folks are certainly looking for love in all the wrong places. This social experiment sounds like a disaster waiting to happen. Marriage should not be toyed with and taken lightly. There are many folks still fight for the right to get married to the person they love. So for a show like this to come around and just put two people together join hands in marriage for our entertainment is a bit disrespectful. Is being married a big joke now?

Married at First Sight is on the FYI Network. Somebody has to watch it. I guess.
