Coming to the small screen this fall….
Tanisha Thomas, the breakout star of the “Bad Girls Club” franchise has landed a daily talkshow on Oxygen. Here’s the OXYGEN synopsis:
“Crazy Talk” is on the way.
Hosted by Tanisha Thomas (“Bad Girls Club”) and Ben Aaron (WNBC’s “New York Live”), the fast-paced, laugh-out-loud first-run comedic syndicated daily program raises an eyebrow on the most outlandish and sometimes bizarre moments on reality television. Taped in front of a live studio audience, this half-hour series filled with raw and hilarious banter also invites reality stars to rehash their “15 minutes of fame” and provide insight behind their most-watched clips.
And here’s another show headed to OXYGEN:
“Preachers of Atlanta” is about to try to live up to its “Preachers of LA” and “Preachers of Detroit” counterparts.
Atlanta is not only the home to fast cars, sprawling mansions and the southern elite, but a new generation of up-and-coming preachers who are superstars of the pulpit. The third installation from the popular franchise, “Preachers of Atlanta” documents the lives of the city’s young elite mega-pastors as they focus on the daily struggles and triumphs as husbands, wives, fathers, mothers and friends, while also maintaining their duties as men and women of God.
