This past Wednesday BET hosted an exclusive advance screening of the latest addition to their lineup The Real Husbands of Hollywood–premieres TONIGHT at 10/9central–at the Hard Rock Hotel and Go2Guide was in the building! The screening event itself was a little light which is unusual for their events at which they serve complimentary food and (adult) beverages (maybe they should think about using Go2Girls to help them next time…just a thought ;)). Still, it was a nice event and the light crowd just meant there was more for the people who were in attendance to enjoy. 🙂
Now about the main event…Real Husbands of Hollywood is the brain child of comedian Kevin Hart who got his inspiration from Bravo’s wildly popular The Real Housewives series. Now the show features real celebrities Boris Kodjoe, Duane Martin, J.B. Smoove, Nick Cannon and Robin Thicke BUT it’s only “Faux Real”. Although cast members themselves, the series is completely scripted! Don’t let that stop you from tuning in…if the premiere is a true reflection of the series, then there will be more than enough gut-busting one liners, drama (however fake it may be), and eye candy (for peeps who like the fellas) to keep you coming back for more each week.
We have been waiting to see this for months, and luckily were not disappointed. The show was absolutely hilarious! Kevin Hart fanatics will LOVE it. Even if you’re not a fan of Hart’s, you’ll still love it because of all the shenanigans. As you would expect, Hart carries the show with his over-the-top antics and animated personality. He is a mix of the classic “Angry-Black-Man” with a Napoleon Complex. Nick Cannon really stood out and held his own too, with Robin Thicke right on his heels, mostly because of their love/hate relationship with Kevin. Aside from the main cast of characters, viewers can look forward to plenty of guest celeb sightings throughout the season including: Melaine Fiona, Common, Ed O’Neal, and Paula Patton.
To be fair, we should mention that we got a sneak peek of another show Second Generation Wayans. Soooo…there you have it. (Sorry. It was just disappointing…we still love you Tatyana Ali).
Tune in to the season premiere of the Real Husbands of Hollywood Tuesdays at 10pm/9pm Central. Don’t miss the first episode tonight! Only on BET.
