Give it to Kevin Hart for coming up with a new concept in reality – the “unreality” show. And give it to BET to see the genius in Hart’s “Real Husbands of Hollywood,” which started out as skits on the BET Awards.
Quickly seeing the comic potential in the skits, which starred real-life Hollywood husbands and boyfriends Nick Cannon, Bobby Brown, Nelly, Jermaine Dupri and Boris Kodjoe, with a cameo by reality star Tami Roman, BET ordered a TV show which Hart says will make fun of the “real” reality shows. Robin Thicke and Duane Martin, along with Cannon, Hart and Kodjoe round out the regular cast.
“I haven’t been this excited about a project of mine in a while, there is nothing like this on television……the levels of funny that will be reached on this show are endless!!!” Hart said in a statement.
