Let’s Talk About Pep might throw some folks off because it’s a dating reality TV show– shows in that vain tend to be on the trashy side. However, Vh1 released a more detailed preview and it looks good. Having read Pepa’s autobiography, interviewed her, and after watching her in action on The Salt n Pepa Show, I was worried about the types of men she would attract to vie for her love (in other words, they’d be a hot mess), but it’s not set up like I Love New York and shows in that vein.
Let’s Talk About Pep, premiering January 11, is a refined approach to finding Pepa a respectable man. She has been single and celibate for four years but also realizes that her dating patterns have been destructive. So she is looking for a change with the help of dating experts, life coaches and her girlfriends like Jacque Reid, who is also looking to settle down, and Joumana Kidd, former wife of Jason Kidd. The show is set up like a real-life Black girl version of Sex and the City and looks very real and interesting. I can’t wait! Check out the preview:

I remember the days when VH1 used to be the network for old heads who couldn’t stomach the videos found on MTV.
Not that I’m complaining about the shift over at VH1, but more and more it seems to be becoming the network for fading Black celebrities of yesterdecade to get a date with someone any person with a clue knows they don’t really care about.
That being said, add Chilli and Pepa to the list as both have announced new series centered on them finding a date…with a camera man and some stand-in.
Variety reports that the untitled Pepa project will chronicle Salt’s friend as she will follow “as she starts to look for love after four years of a “self-imposed romantic and sexual dormancy.”
Why not just say help her get some, because that doesn’t sound like something Pepa would say. What does that sound too crass? Whatever, this is VH1.
As for Chilli, her entitled series will follow her as she enlists the help of relationships expert Tionna Smalls to find love.
If this is what Chilli’s doing now, I guess plans for a solo album are on hold.
Eh, I’m actually a little interested in Pepa’s show, though. She’s like that mama that thinks she’s cool that will push you out of the way on the dance floor at the club to have more run to do the stanky legg.
Hilarity (albeit in a sad way) is coming.
