It’s official! Comedian/radio personality Rickey Smiley has landed his own reality show.
Smiley tried his hand at a scripted series based on his life a while back (click HERE if you missed that) but it didn’t do too well, and now he and Roger Bobb are trying again… this time without a ‘script’.
TV One recently announced that Smiley’s show is in production and the hour-long show featuring the syndicated morning show host and stand-up comedian will be titled “Rickey Smiley For Real.”
The new reality show will reportedly follow Smiley as he navigates the “ups” and “downs” of professional demands, single fatherhood, and intimate relationships.
Shooting in Atlanta, Georgia, where he resides during the week, and in his hometown of Birmingham, Alabama, where he raises his family, Smiley’s struggle to find work-life balance while trying to maintain a love life will be a central focus of the series.

It was just a few days ago that I revealed in a ‘not so blind’ item that Oprah Winfrey‘s OWN newtork would be pulling the plug on their ‘baby daddy’ themed show (click HERE if you missed that).

The show was to be focused around Jay Williams, the Atlanta resident with 34 kids and 17 baby mamas that bared his baby mama drama on several episodes of Iyanla: Fix My Life.
The goal of the ‘Untitled Jay Williams Project’ was to follow Williams as he worked to put his life and relationships in order with the help of spiritual life coach Iyanla Vanzant holding him accountable every step of the way…. but things didn’t turn out as planned.

Atlanta-based rapper Shawty Lo is in the news this week after several sites have drawn comparisons between his ‘All My Baby Mamas’ reality show and OWN-TV’s recent announcement about another Atlanta man with similar issues getting a green light for his show.

I thought it would be interesting to speak one on one with Lo about the comparisons, especially in light of all of the protests and petitions HIS show received when it was picked up (and dropped) by Oxygen last year.

On his show being stereotypical and/or ‘glorifying’ baby mama…
Basically, I can get what they mean by ‘glorifying’ because the name of my show was ‘All My Baby Mamas’… I had nothing to do with that. Period.? That was something the network came up with and I was telling them, I? didn’t like that name.
I have 11 kids and 10 baby mamas.? 11+10 is 21 and I wanted by show to be called, ‘Shawty Lo: Being 21.’
But they did what they wanted to do and I think that’s one reason we got backlash…
