As previously reported, the network’s latest foray into reality TV is brought to us via Todd Tucker, who presently stars alongside wife Kandi Burruss on the “Real Housewives of Atlanta.”
“Hollywood Divas” stars Elise Neal (The Hughley’s), Lisa Wu (RHOA), Countess Vaughn (The Parkers), Golden Brooks (Girlfriends), Paula Jai Parker (The Wayans Brothers) and aims to give the public a glimpse into what the industry is really like when you are a black actress.
According to Parker, black actresses never really make it no matter what they have accomplished because work is generally scarce. “You can be in a critically acclaimed hit movie today and find yourself unemployed for the next two years,” says Paula. “Even an Oscar or an Oscar nomination doesn’t guarantee you will find employment again.”
Because of that, Paula reportedly began work on her own production and called in several actresses to help her- and there you have the plot for “Hollywood Divas.” But, because this is a reality show and drama sells, things quickly go south because of the egos and well… I think we all know the rest.
Check out the preview clips below and look for “Hollywood Divas” to debut on TV One October 8 at 10pm.
