PREACH

There’s a new preacher’s reality show coming to Lifetime and I’m not sure what to say about the above trailer.  There are four “prophetesses” in this particular show.  They are:  Belinda Scott (Cleveland Heights, Ohio); Taketa Williams (Columbus, Ohio); Linda Roark (Trenton, Ohio); and Kelly Crews (Cleveland, Ohio).

“Preach” is the latest Christianity-based offering of  reality shows.  There was TLC’s “The Sisterhood” (cancelled after one season), Oxygen’s Preachers of LA (my favorite), and the spinoff Preacher’s of Detroit (I also like). Lifetime has also been showing “Preacher’s Daughtrers” for three seasons.  Check out the trailer above and let me know if you’ll be watching…..

CHRIS BROWN’S EX, KARREUCHE TRAN SPEAKS…

Tonight… it’s going down on Iyanla’s “Fix My Life”.  Iyanyla sits down with Chris Brown’s on and off again girlfriend KARREUCHE TRAN for a no holds barred interview.  You can watch excerpts from tonight’s show below.  This stuff that we see in the news is so far-fetched sometimes that there is no way you can make this stuff up.I will probably be watching college basketball when this is on but trust me… the DVR will be running.  Yep, I’ve told you before:  I have this thing for reality TV. If you have Oprah’s OWN, check your local listing to see what time it will be on in your area.

 

PREACHERS OF DETROIT

When I tell you that this new spin-off of “Preachers of LA” called “Preachers of Detroit” is a hot mess, believe me.  To be honest, as a person who loves to watch reality tv, it is what the doctor ordered.  Even though I’m cognizant of the fact that anyone who has a camera following them around constantly can’t really act normal; I do believe that you get to see moments of realness from that individual.  It is those moments of realness that I enjoy.

Leading the cast of characters of this show is Pastor David Alexander Bullock, who is a fireball.  He is unapologetic, confrontational, and very outspoken.  Bullock keeps the pot stirred.  Joining Bullock as other featured cast members are Bishop Charles H. Ellis III, Bishop Corletta Vaughn, Bishop-Elect Clarence Langston, Pastor Don William Shelby Jr., evangelist and gospel recording artist Dorinda Clark- Cole, and Pastor Tim Alden.

I’ve only seen the first two shows, but I can tell that I’m in for a fiery ride through some of the churches in Detroit.  Find them on Oxygen and check out the time they are on in your area.  You’ve got to let me know what you think about this one.

 

MORE REALITY?…

About a week ago I introduced a trailer for a reality show that is trying to get picked up by a television station. I’m not sure that they will ever make it to television but I certainly am prepared to show you episode 1 on studiotj. Yes of course it’s a mess but I’ve got to show you that everything that you see… is not what you see. I hope you caught that nugget. You’ve got to learn to trust GOD and not any man or woman on this planet. If you don’t get anything from what I said, get that!!! You’ve got to let me know what you think. There’s more to come.

GIFTED BEYOND BELIEF

Some people are just gifted beyond belief. This kid is one of them and trust me, his name will be known worldwide. I saw this kid on America’s Got Talent a week or so ago and I just had to share this clip with you. You will certainly be impressed. He’s just nine years old.

If you’ve visited this site for any length of time, you already know that I’m a big fan of reality tv. Recently, I watched the fiery reunion for the Real Housewives of Atlanta (Part 1). In the clip above Porsha Williams, the granddaughter of civil rights leader Hosea Williams, was provoked by Kenya Moore (former Miss America). Porsha responded by dragging Kenya across the stage. The women on The View discussed this incident and in my opinion, they got it right.
Sometimes people get just what they deserve and Kenya was on the receiving end… just what she deserved. Sure, here at studiotj, every attempt is made to keep it positive and I’m positive… that Kenya got just what she deserved. Check out the clip below and let me know what you think.

THE BEST EVER… DANCE – ISH

This is a video you just must see. The dancer is Kenichi Ebina and he is the winner of last year’s “America’s Got Talent”.
With the kind of amazing body control that this guy has, it is easy to see why he won. I remember seeing some of his other out-of-this-world performances as well. I’m sure that you will love this.

Dancing With The Stars just introduced its’ new cast and they are listed as follows:

Dancing
Billy Dee Williams is now 76 years old and it’s going to be interesting to see how he does. Also, Ne Ne Leakes is a former stripper and I’m certain that she’s got the moves.
There is a catch this season. During the DWTS season, the stars will swap partners and it’ll be up to America to decide who ends up together.
The just-announced contestants will join judges Carrie Ann Inaba, Bruno Tonioli and Len Goodman, as well as host Tom Bergeron and new co-host Erin Andrews for Season 18.

MARRIED TO MEDICINE 2

Uh oh, it’s about to go down… again. Season 2 of Married to Medicine starts in a little over a month. If you’ve been following this blog for any length of time, you already know that I have this thing about reality tv. Yep, it’s true. There are certain shows that I really enjoy watching and Married to Medicine is one of them. Season 1 was the bomb and from the look of the trailer for Season 2, I just can’t wait. The cameras follow these doctors from Atlanta and their spouses. Trust me, no matter the socio-economic background, people are the same. Most of the shows are packed with…………drama and as much as I hate to say it, I love it. You ought to check them out. The new season begins April 5th. Check your local listings.
