“I’m Talking No Money In The Account Bad” Flex Alexander Details Financial Struggles In New Flex And Shanice Trailer

October 22, 2014  |  

Earlier this year, we told you that Flex and Shanice were getting a new reality show on OWN. And now that the time is nearing for the show to premiere, we’re getting more and more information about what we can expect from the series. The network recently released an extended trailer. In it, we see Flex and Shanice dealing with their unorthodox family structure. Having all of those people (at least 4 extended family members) living in the crib can be a strain. The family argues about which relatives are bringing money into the household and which ones are kind of freeloading.

In addition, the couple opens up about their financial struggles and getting back into their prospective fields. Shanice is back in the studio, sounding stronger than I remember. And  Flex is back on stage performing as a stand up comedian.

We all know the funniest stories are the true ones. So it only makes sense that Flex is using his recent filing of bankruptcy as material. Check out a few excerpts from his set and then watch the full video below.

“Me and wifey, we went through it y’all. We was ballin’, making 1.5, 1.7 million a year, just balling and then just [makes car screech noise] boom! Somebody cut the lights out! 

I’m going to tell you what’s really embarrassing? Filing bankruptcy. The funny thing is me and wifey go down there and wifey she’s like ‘I don’t want to do this…’ I’m like ‘baby, we gotta do it. Donald Trump did it 12 times.’ Went in there and we’re like ‘Lord please don’t see no Black people because they’re going to know who we are!'” 

You can watch the end of the bit in the video below. Forgot how funny that Flex Alexander is. Take a look in the video below.

The show “Flex and Shanice” will air on OWN starting Saturday, November 1 at 10/9c.

Also on the next page there’s this adorable video of Flex and Shanice talking about how they’ve managed to keep their marriage going strong after 14 years and Shanice talking about Flex being her Snicker.
