Few saw it coming, yet many will no doubt watch.

Today saw TV One announce the launch of their latest “Divas” franchise, ‘Hollywood Divas’ – a non-musical spin-off to the popular R&B Divas shows.

Set to launch in the Fall, the show boasts a titillating concept and an even more exciting cast.

Currently in production in Los Angeles, ‘Hollywood Divas’ follows actresses Elise Neal (The Hughleys), Golden Brooks (Girlfriends), Paula Jai Parker (Hustle and Flow), Countess Vaughn (The Parkers) and Lisa Wu (Real Housewives of Atlanta) as they navigate life attempting to stay relevant in the unpredictable entertainment industry.

 Speaking on the show D’Angela Proctor, SVP Programming and Production, TV One said:

“TV One’s audience has a passion for programming that reveals the private stories behind the public lives of Black artists. The Hollywood Divas’ willingness to share their, experiences with inequality and obstacles when it comes to the Hollywood merry-go-round is the foundation of this series. How these women are personally affected by this phenomenon and how they individually handle the pressure, is where the Hollywood Diva stories begins.”

Producers Carlos King and Todd Tucker (both of Real Housewives Of Atlanta prominence) added:

“We are excited to be a part of the TV One family on this groundbreaking series about the lives of Black Actresses in Hollywood. Our goal is to continue the success of capturing compelling stories about women from all walks of life.”

Exciting! We’ll be watching. Will you?!

        Countess isn’t the same funny girl she was back then, the industry has damaged her but I will watch to support her cause I want to see her regain that beautiful personality she had.
