Variety online has announced that Kim Porter, former girlfriend to Diddy and mother to 3 of his 5 children, is getting her own reality TV show. The Lifetime cable channel, whose programming primarily targets women, is set to start filming on the as yet untitled venture, this fall. Kim, who has dabbled in both modeling and acting in the past, reportedly moved to California after her her most recent breakup with Diddy, to once again pursue opportunities in those two fields. I’m not sure how extensive Kim’s modeling career was as I have never actually seen her work. However, her acting has been showcased in quite a few films, including 2001’s The Brothers, which starred Gabrielle Union, Tamala Jones, Tatyana Ali and Morris Chestnut.
