In our reality tv roundup, we’ve got Lil Kim’s tv announcement, EJ Johnson celebrating his weight loss and pics of Evelyn Lozada filming her new series. More inside…
The Queen Bee is back….not Beyonce…we’re referring to the “other” Queen Bee.
Lil Kim is back with the jumpoff, but this time, her return will come through a new reality series (not music) which she announced today via YouTube.
In a clip recently uploaded, she addresses fans saying, “It’s time for the black Kardashian….Anything I do, just has to be big and I’m gonna take you guys on that journey with me and I’m so excited about that.”
This isn’t Kim’s first time at the rodeo when it comes to reality tv. She had a hit in 2005 when she starred on BET’s Countdown To Lockdown about her last two weeks as a free woman.
Based on her Instagram page, we suspect this “journey” will include appearances from Floyd Mayweather and the #TMT in addition to concert footage and clips of her raising her daughter Royal Reign.
In other reality developments…
EJ Johnson, the son of Magic and Cookie, is celebrating his weight loss and we have to say, he looks amazing! We spotted EJ, who stars on the reality series “#Rich Kids Of Beverly Hills” during a recent promo jaunt through NYC where he appeared on FOX’s “Good Day New York” alongside anchor Rosanna Scotto (above) and his co-stars Morgan Stewart and Dorothy Wang (below).
And during a recent stop by the Wendy Williams show, EJ revealed that he’s dropped well over 100lbs. “It’s definitely somewhere far over 100. I mean like literally almost half my size.”
EJ, who was very open about discussing his weight loss surgery added, “It was a tool. And I think that it was something that really helped me jumpstart the life I definitely wanted to lead.
And a few months ago, he told PEOPLE,
“I wanted to be the best me I can be and that’s always something I wanted to do. It’s something that I struggled with and I needed that push in the right direction. And now my mindset is completely changed.”
#Rich Kids of Beverly Hills begins its third season May 24 on E!
Former “BBW” star Evelyn Lozada was spotted filming her new reality show. We told you about the new series a few week ago, which is on the OWN fall 2015 lineup.
The new show carries the working title “Evelyn” and will feature her entire family, including fiance Carl Crawford (LA Dodgers), daughter Shaniece and the littlest one Carl Leo Jr. Here’s the synopsis:
“Evelyn” (working title) follows the lives of Evelyn Lozada, of “Basketball Wives” fame, and her 21-year-old daughter Shaniece. Evelyn is engaged to big league baseball player Carl Crawford and the couple just welcomed their first child, Carl Leo Jr., to the family last March. Between learning to be a mom all over again, setting up a new home in Los Angeles for her and her family, running several businesses as well as dealing with issues surrounding her family back East… Evelyn has a lot going on!
Not to be outdone, her daughter Shaniece’s modeling career is taking off resulting in a flood of business opportunities with no clear choice of which to pursue, leaning on her mom for advice which she (sometimes) takes. Each episode is filled with close friends and relatives in the ladies’ lives who help round out a world filled with laughter, support, encouragement and tears as we follow Shaniece carving out the new life before her and Evelyn finally feeling like she has the life she deserves. The series is produced by Shed Media with Pam Healey, John Hesling, Lisa Shannon, Russ Heldt and Evelyn Lozada as executive producers.”
