Back in April, WE Tv announced their new shows, which included Pregnant & Dating, Newlyweds, and The Ruckers: Southern Royals. As the first two shows have already aired, it is time for The Ruckers to take over.
The Rucker sisters, Ione, Ellene and Ruby are from Lancaster, South Carolina and they are pretty much what you expect from true Southern belles. They are just three of eight children, all of whom are educated, and come from a prominent family. The Rucker name is all over the town – street names, schools, business, etc – and they expect the best treatment.
The youngest sister, Ione, is 33 and is the former wife of basketball player Antawn Jamison. Their divorce was finalized in 2012 and her other two sisters are determined to get her a date. Unfortunately, Ione still seems to have unresolved issues regarding her relationship and because of it, she’s become to much older men because she thinks they’ll focus more on her and not other women. She also wears her wedding ring when they go out because “it’s a diamond and it’s nice.” Yes okay, girl.
Ellen is 36 and is currently dating Bakari Sellers, a politician in the House of Representatives. She is also the former wife of basketball player Vince Carter (he played college basketball with Antawn Jamison and they’re best friends). While she may have married into a wealthy life, she is able to take care of herself with her career as a chiropractor.
Finally, Ruby is one of the older children (her age was not revealed) and is married to a prominent dentist. Her family has gone through some hardships and you get a glimpse of that when she admits they moved into a smaller home and also, two of her aunts have moved in to the home to help them out.
Initially, the women may come across as a bit annoying (I think it’s in their voices), but there’s a chance this might be good.
According to EURweb, The Ruckers: Southern Royals is scheduled to premiere in January on Thursday nights.
