As we reported earlier today, Real Husbands Of Hollywood (which is mistakenly titled in the BET Press Release as Hollywood Husbands) is coming to BET for the new upcoming season. What wasn’t reported is that the show is created by Chris Spencer and has already landed Kevin Hart as one of the characters on the show. As of this writing, no one else has signed on yet, but the execs are trying to land most of the original cast for the sketch which included Hart, Bobby Brown, Nick Cannon, Jermaine Dupri, and Tammi Roman.
Here is a portion of the press release that confirms the story;
HOUSE HUSBANDS – An insanely funny sketch from the 2011 BET Awards (which quickly became a phenomenon) starring host Kevin Hart, rap heartthrob Nelly, R&B crooner Bobby Brown, comedian Anthony Anderson and film star Nick Cannon is coming to primetime. The “housewives” don’t even know what it means to be a real Hollywood Husband. The pressures of spousal stardom are almost too much to bear. Watch the HOUSE HUSBANDS air it all out in this semi-scripted reality TV spoof of every fill-in-the-blank Wives franchise. Starring Kevin Hart.
