I can’t believe we haven’t talked about Real Husbands Of Hollywood, and how it’s about to be my new favorite show. The whoooole issue with reality shows has always been the question of whether or not they’re fake or real; how much of it is staged, etc. etc. What we need is either a.) less reality shows or less TV in general, and/or b.) more reality shows that admit to being totally fake. Enter Kevin Hart! Have y’all seen the promos for his brilliant new show Real Husbands Of Hollywood? Peep the video above, and when you’re finished laughing your arse off, click inside to watch a few more clips and learn more about the project!
The Hollywood Reporter has the story:
Reality television has been derided as staged and contrived. But comedian Kevin Hart’s upcoming BET series the “fakest reality show ever,” he says. “We’re mocking what everybody is doing.”
Real Husbands of Hollywood, which bows Jan. 15, spoofs the over-the-top antics of Bravo’s Real Housewives franchise. The program features Hart and real-life friends JB Smoove, Nick Cannon, Boris Kodjoe, Robin Thicke and Duane Martin and occasionally their real-life wives including Cannon’s wife Mariah Carey. Other guest stars include Shaquille O’Neal, Russell Simmons, Nelly and Common.The series, which like Curb Your Enthusiasm is largely unscripted and improvisational, began as a skit on the 2011 BET Awards and morphed into a full-blown series under the guidance of veteran television producer Ralph Farquhar and Stan Lathan.
NOBODY call me on January 15th! I swear, don’t do it. I’m gonna be busy falling in love with Kevin Hart all over again. In the meantime, I’m gearing up for the premiere. This was the world’s first intro to the show:
And this was one of the first clips, in case you missed it:
