LoveintheCityCast

I think it’s safe to say Oprah has officially hopped on the reality show bandwagon. This spring, the Oprah Winfrey Network will air a new docu-series, Love in the City, that shadows the fast-paced lives of four sistafriends – two are breast cancer survivors – living in New York City.

Here’s the gist from OWN:

Kiyah, Bershan, Chenoa and Tiffany have known each other for more than ten years, and are constant sources of inspiration, support, competition and companionship to one another. Kiyah, an ambitious and successful celebrity hair stylist, is the link who brought the four friends together, and New York City’s legendary Harlem neighborhood is where the quartet come together on a regular basis…over drinks, lunches, dinners, you name it. Two are married, two are single, and all are strong and fiercely independent women who believe in living out their dreams and not letting anyone or anything get in their way. Through the group’s adventures, misadventures, romances, successes and life-altering struggles, they may not always see eye-to-eye, but when push comes to shove, they are there for each other with solid and unwavering support as they each face their own unique challenges and triumphs.

OWN actually broadcasted a sneak-peak first episode last fall, but the official premiere is Saturday, April 12 at 10/9c. Definitely DVR-worthy, in my opinion.

Will you watch?

    I don’t feel like watching four more weaved-up sistas perform on “reality” tv and there’s no indication that just because Oprah’s involvement will mean more positive/useful images. Whenever ratings are required, drama will ensue. Why else would anyone watch?

    BTW, I’m sorry, but yes, the weaves do matter (to me).

    • wow

      lol @ negroes in their recent protest to weaves but they’re ok with their men being auctioned like slaves in sports drafts

      y’all are simple. and you cannot be sure that those are weaves. my hair reaches the top of my tush and ppl think it is weave. haters.

      I am sick of it! WIGS, WIGS AND MORE WIGS AND WEAVES! Everything is fake> ass, eyes, lashes, and creature cream! Go away!

      Hi Nakia,
      How bout you watch the show first before making assumptions? You sound like a negative bitter hater and for what? ‘Four more weaved-up sistas’….all that negativity for what? For starters, two of the women are cancer survivors..perhaps they wear weave because they underwent chemo!? Even if they didn’t…who cares..say something positive of worth a damn. Didn’t ya mother ever tell you if you have nothing nice to say don’t say nothing at all. Comments like the one you left are the root of the problem amongst black women with all the drama, negativity, and recklessness. Get it together.

    I hate reality tv, but OWN has done a great job with shows like Sweetie Pies, Raising Whitley and I even like Deion Sanders show. I detest the Bravo and VH1 reality TV shows, I hope Oprah and OWN will change the scope of “Reality TV”.

    I think because its Oprah it will be different. She has a track record for revamping the old with new fesh outlook. Also important to note that these girls have been friends for years according to bio so that alone is s twist on reality tv out there now. I look forward to it as a woman of color. Bravo Oprah……show them how to do it right!

    Some more garbage for the media! These women need to find them job and get over themselves because! LOOKING FOR A FREE COME UP WITH NOTHING TO WORK WITH!

    I will watch. This show seems to be exploring a demographic of black America we seldom see and I find the docuseries on OWN to be quite well done, even the Lindsay Lohan one.
