“Truth is I’m tiiiiiiired”–of reality TV that is. However, we might get to see something more positive but still entertaining with the reality TV show that gospel singers and acting couple, David and Tamela Mann, have planned for BET.
The couple, both known for their work on Tyler Perry’s Meet The Browns (and Tamela’s “Take Me To The King” was a #1 gospel song back in 2012), will reportedly showcase their large family, including their five children, eight grandchildren and extended family on the new BET reality show. The two seem excited about the new venture. They put out a joint statement confirming the show and the big plans they have for fans:
“We’re excited to announce our new television home is with BET. BET is a great fit for the Mann brand and the perfect place for this new show. There’ll also be some news and reveals we’re saving to share on the show – you’ll have to tune in to find out what’s in store.”
The show will be called Meet The Manns, and according to EurWeb, it will premiere sometime next year. In fact, the reality show is already in production.
Speaking last year about doing reality TV in an interview with Sister 2 Sister, David says they were apprehensive about it all at first:
“We really didn’t want to do it at first. And not knocking any other reality shows, but we just didn’t think we had the drama for a reality show. So we were like, ‘No, because we don’t fuss and argue with each other and go crazy.’ So we said, ‘If you can let us resolve issues in the family and show positive love, then we’ll do one.’ We just want to show people that you can have a great relationship between husband and wife. If you put us in any situation, it’s gonna be crazy!”
I like the Manns (who have been married for more than 25 years by the way), and I’m excited to see what they will do with such a show. But what about you?
