Roy Jones Jr. Gives Malik Smiley a Talk About Respect on TV One’s ‘Rickey Smiley For Real’

Rickey Smiley

Season 3 of TV One‘s Rickey Smiley For Real has followed the highs and lows as Rickey Smiley has gone through parenting trials and tribulations with his kids. It seems just as one relationship improves, another falls short! Last week, when Rickey attempts to surprise Malik by bringing his favorite boxer, Heavyweight Boxing Champion Roy Jones Jr. to his practice, the teen shows out and doesn’t want to participate. The season finale picks up with Jones Jr. having a heart-to-heart with Malik about respecting his father on Tuesday, Jan. 24 at 8 p.m. ET.
“I learned all the stuff that you love about me from my father,” said Jones Jr. “Our fathers mean the most and the best for us. They’re not there to be an enemy, even when it seems like they are. They mean well and they try to give us the best that they can give us. So, you have to learn to trust your father.”
As Rickey watches the champion boxer talk to his son, he’s left speechless.
“Sitting there watching Roy give my son a real talk about respect was deep,” said Rickey. “When you be defiant and you don’t do what your parents tell you to do, you the one that miss out on your blessings. I hope he learned a lesson from this.”
Later, Rickey welcomes Comedian Tony Rock to the morning show to discuss his new venture as the host of TV One‘s The Game of Dating.
“We’ve all been in a restaurant, chilling with your boys or out on a date, and you see a couple across the room and you just try to play that game like ‘what are they going through…are they breaking up or is it a first date,'” said Rock. “So we turned that into a game show! It’s pretty simple to follow the rules. You get the answer right, you get some money and the team with the most money at the end of the game wins $10,000.”
Rock plays the game with Rickey, Da BratGary With Da Tea and Headkrack and their responses to the dating scenario have the crew divided.
“The show is hilarious because it’s going to have you the edge of your seat,” said Rickey. “If you’re watching with your girl, y’all going to be arguing about the questions or what you think the answer is. You do not want to miss this show. This is probably going to be one of the best game shows ever! Now I want to be a game show host!”
Other highlights throughout the finale include:
  • D’Essence confronts Rickey to find out why he was a no-show at her pageant
  • Malik tells Brandon about his plans to leave the country for college, however, Brandon thinks he’s running from his dad
  • Rickey calls a family meeting to address the house rules when the kids come to town
  • Gary with Da Tea has a team meeting with SwanShantéBrandon and Special Kin preparation for his talk show premiere. Later, the big day arrives for the first show taping featuring Trina and Towanda BraxtonKarlie Redd and, of course, Rickey Smiley.

Rickey Smiley Is Not Only Funny As Hell But He Is Giving Back To The Community

unnamed-2

Comedian, actor, radio and TV personality Rickey Smiley (TV One Rickey Smiley For Real), is using his platform in a major way this holiday season by giving back to less fortunate families across the country, through the non-profit, The Rickey Smiley Foundation.

The Rickey Smiley Foundation serves to impact the lives of children, teens and seniors through programming that is designed to foster family, community and social responsibility. Foundation board member, Tim Mercer, has been personally touched by the work of the foundation leading him to kick off the holiday season by personally donating $3,000 to the foundation live on air The Rickey Smiley Morning Show.

The week of December 12, the foundation has granted one month of groceries, school supplies and paid the mortgage of a St. Louis woman in need. Additionally, this week the foundation has paid the living expenses, gifted Christmas presents, paid graduation fees and provided a years worth of pampers for a straight-A student whose family came across hard times this Holiday.

On Christmas Day, Rickey Smiley will grant ten less fortunate families gifts in partnership with the Birmingham Housing Authority.

Smiley will continue his wave of giving back throughout the remainder of the holiday. For more information on “The Rickey Smiley Foundation,” and how you can help/donate visit: therickeysmileyfoundation.org.
