MC Hammer and Flavor Flav have risen from the hip-hop graveyard to power their own reality series, and VH1 is apparently looking to do the same thing for female artists, as it has greenlit separate series for Pepa and Chilli:
VH1 is giving two female hip-hop artists their own reality series — Sandra “Pepa” Denton of Salt n Pepa and Rozonda “Chilli” Thomas from TLC [not to be confused with the cable channel – Ed.].
The “Pepa” series follows Denton as she begins her to search for love after living a celibate life for years. VH1 has ordered eight half-hour episodes… “Chilli” from R&B group TLC is also searching for romance and has enlisted the help of Brooklyn relationship expert Tionna Smalls. Eight half-hour episodes have been ordered.
Oohhhh… women in their late 30s and early 40s looking for love. Sounds spicy… like a Chilli Pepa! [I apologize. You didn’t deserve that.] When asked why they didn’t get a reality show yet, the members of Kris Kross merely shrugged and went back to giving handjobs under the freeway overpass.
