Keyshia Cole’s Family Pitches New Reality Show
Those of you who’ve witnessed Keyshia Cole and her family war it out on their series of reality shows (Keyshia Cole: The Way It Is, The Frankie & Neffe Show), know that crew comes with a whole leap of drama. Things are so bad between the R&B thug and her relatives that she often goes without talking to her mom, Frankie Lons, and sister, Neffeteria Pugh. But that’s not stopping them from trying to stay in the spotlight with their mess.
Spearheaded by Frankie, her and seven of her grown children (minus Keyshia) came together to pitch a new reality show airing out all their family drama (as usual), in hopes of getting picked up by a major network. In the pilot, they all sit down with a professional therapist to try and mend their broken unit, but I think they need way more than a bootlegged Iyanla Vanzant to fix their lives… poor Keyshia.

G-Unit Doing An Official Reunion Show + Working on a New Project
G-Unit fans got the shock of their lives when the group banded together onstage at Hot 97’s Summer Jam concert Sunday night. (Minus Game.) Well, get ready for an even longer trip down memory lane because 50 Cent is teaming up with his self-proclaimed “little brothers” to do a one-time show at NYC’s Webster Hall on June 8 (in support of his freshly released LP, Animal Ambition). (You guessed it: no Game though.)
But here’s some even bigger news: the Unit is currently working on a new project!
Right after their epic reunion at Summer Jam, they dropped a new record called, “Nah I’m Talking Bout,” but it has been confirmed that this is only the beginning for the once-blazing ’00s rap gang. But of course, the Game is still not included.
