You Signed Up For The Wrong Show: Reality TV Stars Who Should’ve Been On A Different Series
Keke Wyatt: “R&B Divas” or “Couples Therapy”?
Keke Wyatt is definitely an r&b diva and I enjoyed watching her with Faith, Monifah, Syleena, and the gang on this premiere season of the TV One show. But, and this is a bit but, Keke has some issues — relationship ones. At first I thought Keke didn’t realize that it was odd to have her husband around all the time, and figured maybe they’re inseparable like Alex and Simon the “Real Housewives of New York.” That’s not exactly the case but they do have something in common, they need to be on “Couple’s Therapy” just like them.
Keke openly admitted that she believes if her husband is not with her at all times he will cheat and that’s why she runs his life. If she decides not to return to “R&B Divas” next season, she should definitely consider giving the folks over at VH1 a call. I think Dr. Jenn Berman could break down some of those issues for them.
JoJo Hayley: “Couples Therapy vs. Rehab with Dr. Drew”?
Speaking of “Couple’s Therapy,” this past season it was so clear to me why JoJo and his wife, Tashaunda, were having issues as a couple — he had to many issues on his own. JoJo is an alcoholic plain and simple and that reality was the source of their issues as a couple. Unfortunately, he wasn’t even willing to admit that, which meant they couldn’t move forward together because he wouldn’t get his own individual problem out of the way. Even more serious was a medical doctor telling JoJo he was in danger of dying very soon if he didn’t stop drinking. He would have been far better off indulging in celebrity rehab with Dr. Drew before trying to save his marriage.
Jackie Christie: “Basketball Wives LA” or “Iyanla Fix My Life”?
Jackie is one of the few women on “Basketball Wives LA” who is actually a basketball wife, which is a good thing for credibility but after learning just how unstable she and her family are on season 2 of the show, it’s so clear BBWLA is not where she needs to be. Jackie’s need for acceptance is disheartening, particularly because she seems to be vying for the accepatance of a random group of co-stars more than her own daughters. And if the claims Jackie’s daughter made about her mother’s treatment of her darker skinned, overweight sister are in fact true, it’s no surprise the Christie family has been torn apart. Iyanla needs to pay this family a long visit to work through all of their issues. I’m talking a two-part special. Jackie has way too many more series things to fix than to be dealing with the craziness of basketball wives.
Shaunie O’Neal: “Basketball Wives” or “Hollywood Exes”?
Tiffney Cambridge: “Marrying The Game” or “Love & Hip-Hop LA”
Cynthia Bailey: “RHOA” or “America’s Next Top Model”?
Kenya Moore: “RHOA or “The Bachelorette”?
Mimi, Joseline, and Stevie: “Love & Hip-Hop Atlanta” or “Sister Wives”?
It’s a stretch, I know, but let’s not act like this threesome isn’t one step away from being in this arrangement anyway. If there’s any group that is set up to be on a LHHATL spinoff, it would definitely be these three. Joseline and Stebie have been seen out and about just about every other week since season 1 of this show aired, and Mimi can try to act like her interactions with Stevie are just for their daughter but I highly doubt they’ve been taking their little one to the club with them. These girls are essentially lapped up in the passenger seat of Stevie J’s bus and I’m sure he’s a member of this new-age legalize polygamy campaign, so the possibility of a “Sister Wives” debut isn’t that far off actually.
Olivia: “Love & Hip-Hop” or “R&B Divas”?
OK, I know Olivia doesn’t quite have the pipes befitting of the ladies on “R&B Divas” but she also has no hip-hop connection to keep her on LHH. Olivia said she didn’t know if she was going to come back for another season of the VH1 show, but for some reason she’s decided to, despite her irrelevancy. Olivia isn’t trying to get her foot in the door, she’s already had her run in the r&b game much like the ladies on the TV One show. I think she has a better chance of putting an album out with them than she does her own.
