Punk’d is the feline species of reality shows. The Ashton Kutcher-created reality series has more lives than your neighborhood alley cat. Once again, it’s rising from the television graveyard.
The hidden camera show which pulled elaborate pranks on celebrities was an instant sensation when it premiered back in 2003. It ran for several years until 2007 before MTV canceled it. After a five-year hiatus, the network resurrected the series, but with Kutcher no longer hosting. He did, however, stay on as an executive producer. Despite the likes of Justin Bieber and Miley Cyrus taking turns hosting the revived series, the new incarnation only lasted for one season.
Get ready for the premiere of Real Husbands of Hollywood, premiering later this month on BET. It’s a new scripted non-reality show, making fun of the Real Housewives franchise and focussing on the sexy men instead of the women.
The show stars Robin Thicke, Kevin Hart, Boris Kodjoe, Nick Cannon, Duane Martin, and J.B. Smoove and looks freaking hilarious. In one of the promos for the show, the guys each give their own reasons why they believe they are the star of the show and Thicke says that he’s the star because he’s a “sexy bitch“. LOL. There are few other promo videos from the show that I have included, one where another of the “Husbands” explains what a “Mitch” is…. a male version of a bitch. LOL.
Enjoy the funny preview material below and tune into the premiere episode on Tuesday, January 15 at 10/9c on BET.
Next Sunday, July 1, Samuel L. Jackson will front the 2012 BET Awards as the evening’s host. The night will be full of stars from the presenters to the musical performances. D’Angelo is set to make a triumphant return to the stage as well as a striking performance from Cissy Houston. Young Money’s first lady of hip hop, Nicki Minaj will also be taking the stage, but she better watch out for her job because it looks like the evening’s host may be coming for her job.
In a new promo released to promote the night, Samuel L. Jackson dons a signature pink wig to look like Nicki Minaj as he raps the hook to the Roman Reloaded track, “Beez In The Trap.” HILARIOUS! Let’s hope that Nicki performs the track and that Samuel makes a cameo. Wouldn’t that be unreal? Check Samuel L. Jackson’s rapping skills in the video promo below. Will you be checking out the 2012 BET Awards when they air on July 1? Let us know in the comments!
Last Wednesday, news broke that the producer of the majority of Beyoncé’s album 4 had voiced some seriously harsh criticism on his Twitter about his disapproval of Kelly Rowland holding the #1 spot on the Billboard with her track Motivation. His name is Jeff Bhasker and has also pumped out hits for the likes of Alicia Keys and Kanye West.
Slamming the song for it’s weak beat and forgettable lyrics, everyone was waiting for Kelly to lash out on the producer and give him a TKO. Instead, in an interview with BET, she stayed true to Destiny’s Child form and kept it classy like a real star.
“You know what, the record speaks for itself. Opinions are like **sholes, everybody’s got one. He’s made wonderful music with my sister and other artists. There’s no reason for me to say anything negative. ‘Cause I won’t tell you the thought that is really in my head. I’ll just kill ‘em with kindness.”
