(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.

It Continues…”Lifetime” Prepares “Surviving Jeffrey Epstein!”

Lifetime definitely scored mega ratings with its hit docu-series, “Surviving R. Kelly.” The series has been praised and criticized for taking down the R&B singer and building a case against him for the sexual exploitation of dozens of women across the country. However, many feel like the series and R. Kelly’s subsequent indictments were just low hanging fruit, and other, more prolific predators need to be taken down. Thus Lifetime’s next docuseries is “Surviving Jeffrey Epstein!”

However, many feel like the series and R. Kelly’s subsequent indictments were just low hanging fruit, and other, more prolific predators need to be taken down. Thus Lifetime’s next docuseries is “Surviving Jeffrey Epstein!”

Jeffrey Epstein, as you may recall, is a financier and convicted sex offender who attained young women, many of them underage, for himself and his elite social circle to sexually abuse.

Variety writes that the announcement was shared at the Television Critics Association winter press tour on Saturday. The docuseries was initially declared to be in development last summer and is expected to air on Lifetime this summer.

Epstein was arrested in 2019 and accused of sexually assaulting and trafficking multiple underage girls. A lot of eyes were on the case due to the fact that he mingled with a number of powerful people in Washington D.C. and beyond.

He had been charged with such crimes before, receiving a soft plea deal in 2008 from former U.S. Attorney Alexander Acosta, who resigned as the U.S. Labor Secretary when the specifics behind the deal surfaced during Epstein’s new arrest.

In August, Epstein died in his cell in a New York detention center in an alleged suicide, though many have theorized that he was murdered.

Surviving Jeffrey Epstein will come from Emmy-winner Robert Friedman’s Bungalow Media + Entertainment and will be directed by Anne Sundberg and Ricki Stern. Christopher Mason—a contributor to The New York Times, New York Magazine, Town & Country and Architectural Digest—is also attached to the project. Shura Davidson and Gena McCarthy will executive produce.

We wonder what celebrities, if any, are involved with this documentary. Being that he committed suicide, and his connections, run deep, we hope they are operating with the utmost caution!

During the Television Critics Association (TCA) Presentation, Witherspoon expressed, ““we had been looking for a project to do with Kerry for a long time.” She continued by saying, “when I read the book, it just had so many themes that were very complex and I knew whoever was going to be my partner… who was going to show up to do the work because it’s a lot of work. The first person who I thought was perfect was Kerry. She deepens the conversation and I knew I wanted to go on this journey with her. It just made sense that we were representing completely different kinds of women and different kinds of mothering but both with dignity and respect.”

Kerry added by saying that, “adding the layer of race to that really enriches the storytelling.” “The book also deals with race and does a great job of stepping away from the binary idea of race.”

The limited series’ cast also includes Jesse Williams, Anika Noni Rose, Lexi Underwood, among others.

We have to say this looks amazing! Hulu is really diversifying its content and upping the ante with the star quality of its content. We are really looking forward to checking this project out. Reese and Kerry are amazing actresses
