‘The Kardashians’ of BET? Meet ‘The Westbrooks’ Coming To A Reality TV Screen Near You

the-westbrooks

BET Networks announced today the premiere date of its new original one-hour docu-series #THEWESTBROOKS. The WestBrooks, also known as “The First Family of Social Media”, features five beautiful, yet entirely unique sisters: India, Crystal, Bree, Morgan and Brooke, who have taken the social media world by storm with more than two million followers checking their every move. The show will go behind the tweets and posts to follow the insta-famous family as they work to establish the “WestBrooks Brand,” while doing all that they can to keep their tight-knit family intact in the midst of newfound fame and celebrity.

#THEWESTBROOKS premieres Wednesday, October 14 at 10 PM ET/PT.

About the #THEWESTBROOKS ladies:

 

India (@indialove) is the pampered princess of the family. Most known for her rumored associations with multiple Hip Hop A-listers, this burgeoning model/fashionista stays busy juggling business meetings with posting endless selfies to her active social media accounts.

Crystal (@westbrooks.crystal) is the free-spirited, peace-loving, hippy of the family.  A college finance major by day, Crystal has aspirations of conquering the modeling and acting worlds with her signature smile.

Morgan (@mommyistattedd) is her Dad’s protégé and the tough-as-nails tattooed biker girl with a business mind and a fuse you don’t want to ignite.  Whether it’s riding with her bike club or running multiple businesses, the “Boss Lady” gives 100% to everything she does, including defending her sisters.

Bree (@breecandace) is the temperamental middle child of the group. She’s a mother of one with a budding plus-size modeling imprint on social media which focuses on the beauty of women with curves.

Brooke (@shes_brookelauren) is the big sister and heart of the WestBrooks family.  This grounded mother of three is fiercely protective of her sisters as she makes plans to rule the fitness and fashion worlds with a focus on under-appreciated plus-size women.

While the WestBrooks women receive the majority of the attention, their parents Warren and Candy are far from behind-the-scenes. And while each family member has an individual purpose and passion, it is their familial bond and love that keeps them grounded. “Family is not an important thing, it’s everything.”

#THEWESTBROOKS is Executive Produced by Lemuel Plummer for L. Plummer Media, Jason L. Tolbert, for Field Legend Productions and Le’John Plummer for Art Life Entertainment.

Join the conversation on social media by using the hashtag #TheWestBrooks. We can’t wait to see what the sisters have in-store!

P. Diddy’s Street Ambassador Shawn Prez: Put Caitlyn Jenner On A Wheaties Box

Shawn Prez, CEO of Power Moves Inc, the nation’s premier street marketer, and long-time friend, known as P-Diddy’s “Ambassador to the Streets”  said today that Caitlyn Jenner (formerly Bruce) should be featured on a Wheaties box again. Do you agree?

Shawn Prez also said:

“While our world is changing and it’s been awhile since Jenner was recognized as an athlete, Caitlyn is still the athlete we once knew. No matter her gender, Jenner remains the athlete that was famous for winning Olympic gold; the same athlete that once graced the front of the Wheaties box. But she is now famous for so much more. Her personal decisions have not impacted her past as an Olympian, and with that in mind, General Mills would be smart to stand by its slogan as “The Breakfast of Champions,” because Caitlyn is now a champion in more ways than one.

From a marketing standpoint, there is a huge benefit to Wheaties if they should choose to put Caitlyn on the box. Wheaties is poised to appeal to a new millennial audience, one that is more accepting than the generations that came before them, and stands to gain quite a bit in terms of corporate responsibility by acknowledging that as one of very few spokespeople for the brand, Jenner’s personal choices in her appearance don’t take away from her past accomplishments.

General Mills could decline because it has been so long since Jenner has been recognized by the public for accomplishments as an athlete. However, to take advantage of the buzz, General Mills could feature Jenner in a now and then box. The Wheaties brand has brought back athletes before, celebrating its 75th anniversary by featuring past champions on boxes. If the brand were to do something similar again, it would be making a huge mistake by not including Caitlyn.

Wheaties features athletic champions on its boxes to depict a healthy lifestyle, one that consumers buying the product can aspire to. It may be time to expand those recognized on the box to include athletes that don’t fit the stereotypical mold, and let consumers admire champions that are known for more than their athletic achievements.

Shawn may just have a point. But would this cause more of a ruckus amongst the media and parents of millennial on-lookers of the famous morning cereal? It’s a risk taker but would change perception by accepting one’s personal decisions.

Thoughts?

Meet us in the comment section and let us know what you think!

Thanks to Shawn Prez for keeping things on a positive note!

Bruce Jenner — Caitlyn Jenner Is Here And She Has Arrived! Bish WHET! Covers Vanity Fair Magazine

caitlyn-jenner-vanity-fair

Out with Bruce, in with Caitlyn! 

Yes, believe it or not, the new and transformed Caitlyn Jenner has now made her appearance and she’s here to stay! Today, the dashing Caitlyn debuted her new Vanity Fair cover photographed by the legendary Annie Leibovitz. Laced in a white satin one-piece bustier, Jenner sits elegantly, legs crossed, with long brunette locks, and a chiseled face. You have to admit, she looks great!

caitlyn-jenner

 

The 65 y/o Olympic Gold Medalist and Reality TV captain, started a new IG in celebration of her new cover, new life, and immediately put her thoughts in 140 characters saying:

In case you’ve been under a rock, Bruce Jenner‘s transition has been chronicled for sometime now on the hit reality show Keeping Up With The Kardashians, once his sudden announcement to his immediate family of how he has been feeling for years about his gender type, and not being his true self, followed by an About Bruce special — along with a special 20/20 interview by Diane Sawyer.

Caitlyn talks to VF about criticism on pulling a publicity stunt for television:

“‘Oh, she’s doing a stupid reality show. She’s doing it for the money. She’s doing this, she’s doing that.’ I’m not doing it for money. I’m doing it to help my soul and help other people. If I can make a dollar, I certainly am not stupid. [I have] house payments and all that kind of stuff. I will never make an excuse for something like that. Yeah, this is a business. You don’t go out and change your gender for a television show. O.K., it ain’t happening. I don’t care who you are.”

Caitlyn’s kids are all in support of her new life and look forward to the new journey as well.

Bruce’s son, Burt (36) says:

“I have high hopes that Caitlyn is a better person than Bruce. I’m very much looking forward to that.”

A new granddaughter on the way from Kim Kardashian & Kanye West, and a new life….the timing couldn’t be any better!

Congrats to Caitlyn on such bravery! We applaud you!

Much attention has been on Bruce Jenner for the past few weeks about his alleged transition into becoming a woman. But today, Bruce wasn’t so lucky as he was apart of a fatal car accident.

According to TMZ:

Bruce Jenner was involved in a horrific car accident on Pacific Coast Highway in Malibu at around noon Saturday, one person is dead, and it looks like Bruce caused the accident … TMZ has learned.

Law enforcement sources tell us … there were 4 vehicles involved in the crash.  We’re told there were 8 people involved and all sustained some sort of injury … but one person died at the scene.

Eyewitnesses say Bruce rear ended the white car and that car went into oncoming traffic and was struck by the Hummer.  You can see the impact in the pics below.  The woman driving the white car died.

One law enforcement source said Bruce seems to be ok, but again, we’re told the 7 survivors sustained some injuries, ranging from minor to moderate.

Jenner family sources tell TMZ Bruce was being chased by as many as 5 paparazzi at the time of the crash.  Bruce told cops he wasn’t drinking and passed a field sobriety test.

We’re told Bruce had picked up his Polaris UTV after loaning it to a wounded veterans group.

3:45 PM PT  Law enforcement sources tell TMZ … Bruce volunteered to go to the hospital to have his blood drawn for blood alcohol testing. He was taken in a Sheriff’s cruiser.  We’ve also learned the woman who was killed in the white car was coming to a stop at a red light when Bruce hit her.  We’re told law enforcement has already determined Bruce was not speeding.

And we’re told there was a 4th car involved in the accident.  The woman in the white car hit a Prius in front of her before moving into oncoming traffic.
