Good news for the “fakest reality show ever!” BET has renewed “Real Husbands of Hollywood” for a second season.
The faux reality series stars Kevin Hart, Nick Cannon, Boris Kodjoe, Duane Martin, J.B. Smoove and Robin Thicke. The show also included regular appearances by rapper Nelly and comedian Faizon Love, both of whom are scheduled to return in season two.
The scripted series, which started as a skit during the 2011 BET Awards, is a comedic spoof of the various “Housewives” series saturating television. The original skits starred Hart, Cannon, Nelly, Jermaine Dupri, Bobby Brown and Anthony Anderson.
“When we launched this series in January, we knew our audience would have as much fun watching it as we had making it, and since it has been on the air, fans have voiced on social media that they want more. So this was a pretty simple decision: ‘Hey! Let’s make more!’” said Stephen Hill, BET’s president of music programming and specials. “We are beyond thrilled that Kevin Hart and the stellar Husbands will be back bickering and back-biting, for another season on BET.”
“Real Husbands of Hollywood” premiered to 4.1 million viewers in January. It wraps up its first season later this month.
