After we did the sketch [BET] received emails and tweets of people asking, “Was it real? Is this going to be a series?” People were just in love with the overall idea of it. At the time I didn’t feel like it could be a show because, as I said, it was just a sketch, and after a while that sketch is eventually gonna get old, you know? But I discussed it with my writing partners and we said, “You know, we probably could pull it off. We would have to make this a fake reality show.”
Ta’Mika Reynolds from South Euclid, Ohio can’t wait for Wednesday to watch the show. “I’m looking forward to watching the “Real Husbands of Hollywood” because it appears as if the guys are going to take things to the extreme and it will keep you laughing, says Ta’Mika. I’m also looking forward to seeing the beef between Kevin Hart and Nick Cannon over Mariah Carey because it seems hilarious in the commercial, she continued.
