VH1's new reality TV lineup for April: celebrities, wives and more
If you like celebrity reality TV and reality TV wives, VH1 has four new shows premiering in April that are right up your alley.
"Brandy and Ray J: A Family Business," "Basketball Wives," and "What Chilli Wants" will air on Sunday nights, beginning April 11. "VH1 Tough Love Couples" premieres April 12.
"Brandy and Ray J: A Family Business" focuses on singing siblings Brandy and Ray J Norwood, their parents, and their family business Rn'B Productions. Viewers will observe as the family business undergoes a significant transition as mother, Sonja, steps down as its manager. The 11-episode series will air at 9 p.m. and is produced by 51 Minds Entertainment.
"Basketball Wives" follows the lives of seven women who are best friends and are either the wife, ex-wife or girlfriend of NBA superstars. The series follows the women as they balance raising their children, building their businesses and fighting off groupies. The eight-episode series will air at 10 p.m. It is produced by Shed Media and is executive produced by Shaunie O'Neal, who stars in the series with Jennifer Williams, Royce Reed, Erikka Moxam, Evelyn Lozada, Suzie Ketchem and Gloria Govan.
"What Chilli Wants" is a man. Singer Chilli from TLC has enlisted a relationship expert to help her find a man because the criteria she has been using are not working for her. Among her requirements for The One: eight-pack abs, a gorgeous face, has to be funny, has to love kids, has to be religious, and he can't smoke, drink or eat pork. The expert will narrow down her list and introduce her to many men. The eight-episode series will air at 10:30 p.m.
The new Monday night show is a spinoff of "VH1 Tough Love Couples" in which matchmakers Steve and JoAnn Ward help six couples decide whether to get engaged or break up. It will air at 9 p.m.
