Brandy to Launch Slayana Tour This Summer
While her BET comedy Zoe Ever After is on hiatus, Brandy will use the time to hit the road for a series of performances in England. From June 24th to June 28th Brandy will play dates in Manchester, Birmingham, Bristol and London. Tickets go on sale February 26th.
Singers Brandy and Jasmine Sullivan were both of hand Saturday evening to celebrate the 5th Annual BET Music Matters Grammy Showcase. The two R&B divas took to the stage together, but sadly did not perform. Both singers will be attending the Grammy ceremony tonight, Brandy as a presenter and Jazmine as a three-time nominee. Here’s hoping Jazmine finally walks away with a statuette. She’s been nominated eleven times in total.
Brandy recently invited Billboard magazine into the studio, where she shared a bit of background info on how her new single Beggin and Pleadin came about.
“This particular song is freedom,” the Zoe Ever After star told journalist Adelle Patton. “Beggin and Pleadin” represents the liberty to express myself in the most interesting and edgiest way possible.”
Preliminary overnight ratings for Brandy’s new comedy Zoe Ever After are looking pretty good. The BET original series pulled in just over a million viewers and garnered a 1.0 in demo. Those numbers would ordinarily render a network show dead on arrival, but in cable land, especially BET, those numbers are actually worth celebrating.
It should also be noted that BET made the first episode of Zoe Ever After available for viewing online just days before its premiere. I wondered why the network would do that, as most likely it would affect the show’s premiere numbers. But based on what it takes to be renewed on BET, I can only assume they knew what they were doing.
Watch the First Episode of “Zoe Ever After” Before it’s January 5 Premiere Date
Brandy’s new show Zoe Ever After doesn’t officially air until January fifth; however, as of today BET has chosen to make the debut episode available to fans online.
As previously reported, Brandy stars as Zoe Moon, a newly divorced single mom looking to break out of the shadow of her famous ex-husband by starting her own cosmetics company.
Zoe will be joined by a hilarious cast of characters that include Dorian Missick as her ex-husband Gemini Moon, Tory Devon Smith as her assistant Valenté, and Haneefah Wood as her best friend Pearl.
Brandy is returning to the stage next spring to reprise her role as Roxie Hart in the Los Angeles production of Chicago the Musical. The Zoe Ever After star originally made her Broadway debut in the play over the summer when she enjoyed a 12-week sold-out run at the Ambassador Theatre.
No doubt Brandy hopes to reproduce the same magic when she beings her one-week engagement in the musical on April 26 at the Pantages Theatre in downtown L.A.
So here it is you guys, your first look at Brandy’s new BET comedy Zoe Ever After.
Set to premiere in January 2016, the show revolves around Zoe Moon, a newly divorced mom seeking to make a name for herself outside the shadow of her famous ex-husband.
Zoe teams up with her sassy best friend and flamboyant gay assistant, and together they embark on turning Zoe into what she’s always wanted to be: the owner of her own cosmetics company.
Brandy ‘s New Show Zoe Moon Gets a Name Change
As previously reported, Brandy and BET have teamed up for a new hour long comedy-drama titled Zoe Moon. The show is set to air sometime in early January 2016, but when it does, it will do so under the new name Zoe Ever After.
BET announced the name change when it unveiled the show’s cast, which consists of Dorian Missick (Zoe’s ex-husband Gemini Moon), Jaylon Gordon (Zoe’s son Xavier), Tory Devon Smith (Zoe’s assistant Valenté), Haneefah Wood (Zoe’s best friend Pearl) and Ignacio Serricchio (Zoe’s new love interest Miguel).
Make-up artist to the stars, Renny Vasquez, has just unveiled a gorgeous new Brandy photo shoot, rumored to be featured in his first coffee table book.
Brandy said the pair met by chance in a restaurant a few years back and have been inseparable ever since. “Renny is more than just a make-up artist. He is simply an artist. One thing I love most about working with Renny is that I can solely trust him. He knows my face, he has my best interest at heart, he continues to evolve his techniques, and he’s passionate about what he does.”
