Keyshia Cole, the Manns, and Nelly & Miss Jackson Pick Up Reality Shows on BET
Keyshia Cole (and all the lovely family drama she brings) is making a long-awaited comeback to reality TV. The Oakland songstress just snagged her third series on BET, where everything from her music career to motherhood and her crumbling marriage with her skripper-loving husband Daniel “Boobie” Gibson will be explored. (Popcorn please!) Nelly and his new boo Miss Jackson (no, not “if you’re nasty,” but Floyd Mayweather’s ex-fiancé) also scooped a few episodes on the network. And Tyler Perry’s beloved stars, David and Tamela Mann, will also join the BET roster with a family-based show featuring their lives as entertainment mavericks as well. (If they’re bringing the same kind of foolery from Meet the Browns, then this should be good!)

I just want him to see what would happen if he came to play in Toronto. Let him know what would happen,” said the rap star, as the crowd broke into a “K.D.” chant. Now his little red devils are being hit with a $25K fine for violating the NBA’s anti-tampering rules. Poor Drake, he just doesn’t know how to control those emotions.
