The Cast of VH1's "Let's Talk About Pep"
Sitting (L-R) Joumana Kidd, Jacque Reid and Kali Troy
Standing: Sandy "Pepa" DentonFace it ladies and gents, we miss Sex and The City, Girl Friends, Living Single and even The Golden Girls, that's right the Golden Girls, which were in fact the first Sex and the City type of show featuring middle aged women living their lives on their own terms which was hilarious. Sure you can buy them on DVD, but it's not the same. And now we have VH1's new show "Let's Talk About Pep" which is suppose to be a real-life comedy following Sandra "Pepa" Denton of Salt-n-Pepa fame as she emerges from an over four-year romance and celibacy lifestyle in search of love again.
The story goes that after being burned by a lot of bad boys one too many times, Pep decided to get out of the game for a while(sounds like me and a lot of other women). She thought that becoming celibate would cause "Mr. Right" to appear and he hasn't, Pep is now joining forces with three of her closest girlfriends, all of whom are single and searching for a "New Love" to try the dating scene again. Together the four friends will laugh, cry and dish lots of dirt as they all try to find true love.
Rounding out the cast of her three friends are: Journalist and radio show personality Jacque Reid, Joumana Kidd, ex-wife of Jason Kidd and Kali Troy a.k.a. "Kittie" and the voice of Cita of BET fame.
VH1's new original series, "Let's Talk About Pep premiere's tonight at 10:30/9:30C, 11 January 10-so check your local times. I can smell the backlash and the blanket statements that will come from the naysayers.
