(l-r) Malcolm, April, Raquel, Keisha, and Omar

(l-r) Malcolm, April, Raquel, Keisha, and Omar

VH-1’s “Single Ladies” is back for a third season after over a year of hiatus. Everyone’s favorite Atlanta girls, Keisha, Raquel, and April are back with a new season of love, sex, and drama. Season 2 left us on cliffhangers with all the major characters. Malcolm and Kesha reunited, Raque chased down Charles to tell him she loved him, and April was left speechless when Shawn’s family confronted him about being gay, and Omar was caught in a love triangle when he unwittingly fell for two friends.

Fast forward three months (in “Single Ladies” world) and are characters are reunited at Morgan’s decadent wedding to her Arabian Prince. There, we immediately notice Keisha seems to be out of the loop on what’s been going on with her friends. It’s revealed she and Malcolm have been traveling all over the world, and she’s been communicating very little if all with her friends. Even more noticebale is the mounting tension between Kesiha and Raquel. In her absence, Raquel has made some noticebale changes to their apartment and Indulgence. Meanwhile, Raquel’s love life has hit an all time low, not only was she rejected by Charles, but her relationship with Antonio also soured and failed. April discovers Shawn’s family was lying about his sexuality just to break them apart, but opts to dissolve their relationship realizing deep down he wasn’t “The One.” With all the girls caught up in their drama and at a distance, Raquel works through her issues alone.

Meanwhile Malcolm’s family drama takes a tragic turn as his father suffers a heart attack passes away. Despite his brother (Terence) urgently trying to reach him, the news came too late as Malcom had ignored his phone calls. Keisha and the rest of the gang try to comfort the brothers, only to watch them tear each other down in a shouting match at the funeral. Raquel tries to comfort Terence to no avail.

Letoya Luckett made her debut as the series’ latest villainess, “Felicia Price.” Felicia is music’s answer to fashion’s Miranda Priestly. She’s beautiful, powerful, intimidating, and described by Omar as “evil personified.” Well evil has its sights on April and offers her a position on her label if she can steal a new hot rapper that has piqued her interest. April reluctantly pursues the deal, but cowers when she realizes she’ll have to resort to being underhanded to attain her quarry. She opts to return to Felicia empty handed with a soapbox speech of how she refuses to compromise her integrity until she overhears the latter on the phone already underestimating her abilities. Angry, she secures a deal with the rapper’s manager under the table. This pleases Felicia so much that she offers April a position immediately.

Raquel’s life hits a new low when Eve cancels her investment in Indulgence, leaving Raquel frantic and clueless as to how she will save her business and herself from financial ruin. Keisha, surprisingly, finally admits she hasn’t been the best friend she could be lately and confides in Raquel that she is ready to settle down–although she is not sure Malcolm is, or wants to in Atlanta. After stressfully planning his father’s funeral and multiple run-ins with his brother Malcolm finds himself in sync with Keisha, weary of traveling and ready to settle down as well. Unfortunately he won’t be doing any “settling” anytime soon. His father’s will places Terance as an equal partner in the family business and an unknown woman, claiming to be his father’s wife surfaces challenging his will–with Sean (Keisha’s ex) as her lawyer!

Highlights:
-Raquel checking Keisha about carelessness and neglecting their friendship
-Morgan got married!
-Terence snapping on Raquel and Keisha
-April knocking Felicia on her ass
-The revelation of Malcolm’s stepmother
-Eve pulls her investment from Indulgence

Disappointments:
-Nothing from season 2 ran into this season. April, Omar, and Raquel’s love interests were all written off.

Summer can feel like an eternity when your favorite television series are on hiatus. Thankfully, one of our faves, The CW’s Riverdale has dropped us some new images and even greater news about Archie’s latest nemesis in its upcoming third season!

As you may already know, Season 2 of Riverdale ended with Archie being framed and arrested for murder by his girlfriend, Veronica Lodge’s, father, Hiram. It was a surprising end to a city that saw the denizens of Riverdale take a beating from serial killers and finally local thugs and white collar criminals claimed nearly all of the town for themselves. We do not know much about this upcoming season, but we can assure there is a new baddie on the horizon.

Archie, you in danger gurl.

This season on Riverdale, the ginger hero (KJ Apa) finds himself framed for murder by Hiram Lodge (Mark Consuelos) and dealing with the town’s prosecutor, Ms. Wright (Penelope Ann Miller). EW has your exclusive first look at Miller in her role.

Given Hiram’s control over most of the town, it feels safe to assume that he might have his hooks into Ms. Wright, too.

Archie and company have their work cut out for themselves if they’re going to save Riverdale! Tune October 10 at 9 PM EST when the new season premieres!

Sinbad, Lil Rel Howery, and Jordan L. Jones in Rel (2018)

The series centers on Rel a male nurse living in Chicago whose wife recently left him after he discovers she cheated on him with his barber. What should be a heartbreaking situation is tempered with laughter when his best friend Brittany (Jessica “Jess Hilarious” Moore) suggests he get back at his barber by getting with his alleged love interest, Monica, nicknamed “Loose Boots Monica.” The laughs ensue further as his younger brother–fresh out of prison–Nat (Jordan L. Jones) and his father (played by Sinbad) clown him just as hard. Rel must pull his life together and endure the ridicule of the community to move on with his life and readjust to being “Rel” again.

Lil Rel is hands down one of the funniest comedians alive and this new series is only the latest come up in his career. From being a local Chicago celebrity, then appearing in his roles on Get Out and Insecure, and now his own self-titled series on FoxRel is easily the Martin (Lawrence) show of our times. Nostalgia is an awesome marketing tool and when you see this series you will easily feel as happy and elated as you did from the great sitcoms of the nineties and early 2000s that also include Living Single, Half & Half, and to a lesser degree All Of Us.

Lil Rel you are seriously making moves man and we love you for it. Catch Rel this Sunday, September 9th right after the football game! Happy viewing!

TNT is expanding its relationship with “Claws” star Niecy Nash.

The cabler has ordered a pilot for a late-night series that Nash will host and executive produce. Currently titled “Naked with Niecy Nash,” the series would see Nash offer advice on love, sex, romance and relationships with everyday people.

Sue Murphy, who served as an executive producer and writer on the Netflix talk show “Chelsea” and as an executive producer on E!’s “Chelsea Lately,” will serve as an executive producer and showrunner on the pilot.

Should the project get ordered to series, it would mark the first late-night series in TNT’s history. Nash would also be one of only two female late-night hosts on network TV, with the other being Samantha Bee, who hosts “Full Frontal” on fellow Turner network TBS.

“I’m so excited to add my voice to the late-night landscape,” said Nash. “Love is the thing we were created for but it’s also the place we struggle the most… until now! This is going to be a fun and sexy ride! TNT is the perfect partner for me in this endeavor! Adding an experienced and amazing executive producer and showrunner like Sue Murphy to this mix was the cherry on top.”

Niecy Nash really is “living her best life” and we are super psyched to see Naked with Niecy Nash! We wonder who her guests will be. There is no doubt her Claws  cast mates will be stopping by and she is also great friends with a number of comedians, including Cedric The Entertainer. Congrats again!
