New Reality Series ‘The Next 15’: Benzino, Claudia Jordan, Laura Govan, Tiffany “New York” Pollard, Jennifer Williams & Karamo Brown

tvone-the-next-15

TV One today announced production has begun on The Next 15, a docu-series following the lives of six reality stars whose infamous television debuts have come and gone.Currently filming in Los Angeles, the series documents the return of one of the original reality TV divas, Tiffany “New York” Pollard (Flavor Of Love, I Love New York) and Claudia Jordan, who is out for redemption since recently ousted from The Real Housewives of Atlanta. The cast also consists of reality show veterans Jennifer Williams (Basketball Wives), Karamo Brown (The Real World: Philadelphia), Laura Govan (Basketball Wives: LA), Raymond “Benzino” Scott (Love and Hip Hop: Atlanta). All are attempting to generate their next 15 minutes of fame. More than a game changer in reality television, TV One’s The Next 15 is disrupting the genre as we know it. The series showcases the normally unseen “fourth wall” between the producers and the talent, revealing what happens not only on camera but behind it too as the action unfolds.

These stars gained infamy as a result of their tumultuous personal lives playing out over the airwaves but are now committed to changing their public persona and taking their careers to new heights. TV One’s The Next 15, the latest offering from Carlos King – creator and executive producer of The Real Housewives of Atlanta and  the network’s hit series Hollywood Divas – is set to premiere in Q1 2016.

“The revolution is being televised and it is The Next 15!” said King. This groundbreaking series showcases some of reality’s most iconic personalities in a spotlight like you’ve never seen them before, while addressing the viewer’s curiosity of what it takes to make a reality show. The veil has finally been lifted giving viewers exclusive access into the production process of a docu-series.”

“It is with great excitement that we broaden our relationship with Carlos King who has an extraordinary ability of delivering dynamic and compelling content that connects with our audience,” said D’Angela Proctor, Senior Vice President of Original Programming and Production. “With this new project, viewers will get a fresh perspective on the drive and ambition of reality stars who know there aren’t guarantees of longevity in the genre and who must work just as hard and twice as fast to stay in the game.”

The Next 15 is Executive Produced by Carlos King of Kingdom Reign alongside Sergio Alfaro and Erica Forstadt of Eclipse TV. Lamar Chase is Producer; Robyn Greene Arrington is Executive in Charge of Production; and D’Angela Proctor is Head of Original Programming and Production TV One.

Congrats to our friend Carlos!!

WATCH: Gilbert Arenas Hits Ex Gloria Govan’s Car With A Cinder Block, Calls-Out Stripper For Buying Boyfriend Sneakers with His “Tip Money”

Jason LaVeris/FilmMagic
Jason LaVeris/FilmMagic

IT’S OFFICIAL! THESE TWO TOTALLY HATE EACH OTHER. SMH.

Father, let us pray…Dear Lord, please keep these two away from each other…In Jesus name, I pray. AMEN.

What in Cinder Hell is going on?! It looks as though, Shanghai Sharks Guard, Gilbert Arenas is quite fed up with his ex-wife Gloria Govan, yet again.

TMZ reported, that Arenas recently smashed Gloria’s car that she drives with a cinder block after she allegedly threw his computer in the pool and/or screwed up his Netflix account. Basically, Gilbert tossed a big ass rock at the car, therefore, adding quite the damage to a car that he allegedly paid for. Smart, I guess. *side-eye*

Just watch the madness here:

Gilbert and Gloria both have a total of 4 kids together, and as of recent, they have both been going back and forth over a number of issues, in and out of court. Remember, the engagement ring that he recently took back? Yeah, that’s just one example.

As of recent, Govan demanded an emergency restraining order against him this week, claiming he threatened her life saying: “I want you dead or in jail or broke.” But the judge completely shot her down.

This seems to be a repetitive action of Gloria’s. Gilbert recently took his feelings to social media about Gloria’s various attempts of trying to restrain him through court. He says: “Another victory in court. I’m not the one to keep score but ur 0-16.”

Also, just this past Thursday, Gilbert called out one of his favorite strippers on IG for buying her boyfriend some new sneakers with his “tip money”:

BRUH.

Let’s just all say a little prayer for Gilbert, Gloria and well, maybe the stripper too. They should just all stay clear away from each other. That’s all.

On a serious note, hopefully, Gloria and Gilbert can reconcile their differences and focus on the kids, which is more important at this point. Live your love lives separately, but as parents be there for your children.

Thoughts?
