If we said the name Michael Ford to you, you probably wouldn’t know who we were talking about. But if we asked if you remember the man who was glued to Keke Wyatt’s hip during the entire first season of “R&B Divas” last year because the singer was afraid he would cheat, you’d know exactly who we were referring to. Interestingly, it seems Keke may have loosened her grip just a tad this second season because her husband — and manager — Michael Ford has been given a spin-off webseries on TVOne’s website: “The World According to Michael.”
Confused? Here’s a little explanation from the news release:
Often misunderstood and usually the target of many jokes, Michael Ford became last season’s “unofficial diva” due to his 24/7 attachment to his beloved wife Keke – and he wouldn’t have it any other way. In The World According to Michael, Michael sheds light on his hectic yet joyful life with Keke and their six children, giving viewers an exclusive look into their beautiful Atlanta home….
Each of the webisodes will feature Michael in his day-to-day duties as he switches between his roles as dad, husband, manager and business owner. From making breakfast for his kids and rousing his less-than-early-riser wife, to squeezing in tee times on the golf course and interviewing interns for his expanding entertainment company, Michael is finally getting his moment to shine.
We’re sure shine is exactly what he’s looking for as it’s become common place for the husbands of several of reality TV’s most well-known women to become just as popular and well-known as their wives. I’m just surprised Keke said yes to this. We are talking about the same woman who said her husband couldn’t even go golfing because he might stumble upon some other woman to creep with. It will definitely be interesting to see just how much she’s involved with his thing — and if she’s loosened that cray cray grip up just enough to let the main breathe.
Like “R&B Divas,” “The World According to Michael” will air every Wednesday on tvone.tv. Check out a sneak peek of the first webisode up top. What do you think?
