Well...2011 seems to be the year for "Black" Reality Shows (things are looking up).
With 'Beverly Hills Fabulous,' cameras will go behind the scenes of The Elgin Charles Salon -- the only black beauty salon in posh Beverly Hills. Charles, who calls himself 'The Emperor of Hair,' isn't satisfied with his high-profile celebrity clientele. He's on a mission to sell his hair care product line to the masses.
In addition to managing three over-the-top stylists and hitting the best boutiques and restaurants in town, he is also a family man. Former '227' star Jackee Harry is Charles' ex-wife. The couple divorced in 2003, but together are raising their 16 year-old son, Frank, who is also an aspiring football star at Beverly Hills High School.
Also on VH1 "Love & Hip Hop" ......
Former G-Unit Records artist Olivia, singer Somaya Reece, as well as reported girlfriends of rappers Jim Jones and Fabolous are the subject of a new Vh1 reality series. Love & Hip-Hop will look at the lives of four women in and around the Hip Hop industry, dealing with relationships and careers.
In addition to the songstresses Olivia and Somaya, Jim Jones' current mate Chrissy Lampkin and Fabolous' girlfriend Emily Bustamante will star in the eight-part mini-series, which begins airing on March 21, 2011.
