willie-taylor-shanda-denyce

Love & Hip Hop: Hollywood‘s Willie Taylor and Shanda Denyce paid a visit to SFPL TV to discuss what prompted their decision to be on the trending reality show, being married for 8 years with a relationship spanning 12 years and counting, new music and so much more.

The couple also admitted to cheating on each other before and how their relationship stood strong for so long:

Willie – This my friend [pointing to his wife Shanda] first. She’s my friend, wife and the mother of my two children. So, she wear so many hats that I gotta make sure she’s cool. We keep our friendship first, we keep God in our lives — well, we keep God first, our friendship — we’re providers and I feel like in our situation, I can love her even if it hurts. Like, if she does something, I can find it in my heart to forgive her. She’s a human being and we make mistakes…and I know I have put her through some stuff were she should have been cut my head off. But she stuck there with me. I cheated [Willie]…I cheated too [Shanda].

Shanda – I think it made our relationship and marriage much stronger because we’ve gon’ through so much that nothing could break us at this point.

Willie also mentioned that he would sign a music deal with Diddy if the offer was right:

If, Diddy was to come with an offer to sign me today — as long as the business is right, I don’t have no problem. As long as, the paperwork, the black & white reads what we talked about, then i’m cool with it — I don’t care who the deal is with. But now, my mind is in a different place where I will never be in the position for someone to use me through music again. Suckered [Shana says]. And not to say Diddy used me, cause I don’t feel like he used me — me and Diddy cool. Anything anybody else has to say about him, I don’t have that same story.

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!!

‘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!
