I Know You Mean Well, But…7 Reasons Why BET Kills Me Softly

Harlem Heights

What could have been an awesome opportunity to showcase young black elite professionals making moves and getting their foot in the door in their respective industries wound up being one of BET’s dullest programs ever. Seriously ya’ll, I was so excited for this show, especially since when it came out, I had never been to New York, so I was amped to see Harlem culture. I honestly got none of that. After a promising start that brought us the cast celebrating the election of President Obama in ’08, things went downhill from there. The show basically became BET’s answer to MTV’s popular show, The Hills. And instead of viewing classy men and women doing it big in Harlem, we only got to see catty, b****y drama, Kanye West’s self-absorbed ex-girlfriend, and people wasting money going to dinner all the time just so they could talk about others while doing so. After 10 episodes, it was a wrap for Harlem Heights, and sadly, that was the right decision.
