  2. ENOUGH ONIKA September 29, 2015

    A flop in the making, let’s be honest……

    • It’s Barbie B**** September 29, 2015

      kind of like your useless flop comments, if were being honest…

      • RIHANNA>beyonce September 29, 2015

        It’s we’re being honest not were honest. Ijs.

    • R8LATE September 29, 2015

      “STUPID is what you felt now.. When you see ME on TV have a MELT DOWN !”

      • ENOUGH ONIKA September 29, 2015

        –__– no life having ho’s living through this white woman…

  3. Triple M September 29, 2015

    You do realize ABC & ABC Family are two different networks right? Therefore Nicki can’t be joining the likes of Scandal and HTGAWM. Especially given that her show will be a comedy and not a drama like the others. Smh

    • It’s Barbie B**** September 29, 2015

      Abc family is owned by Abc one of the major tv networks if i’m not mistaken, so.. that would make them the same network no?

      • Credits September 29, 2015

        To put it in context, Abc family is to Abc as the Cw is to CBS…sister networks whose shows average 2 to 4 million viewers. That being said, nicki will join the likes of ‘switched at birth’ and ‘ baby daddy.’

    • G September 29, 2015

      What a fool! He clearly meant that she’s joining the Abc family. What a dumb dog you are.

      • It’s Barbie B**** September 29, 2015

        is abc family not owned by abc? was i wrong?… *waits*

    • Onika Da Baddest September 29, 2015

      Don’t ever question King David you b****. Abc is the parent company of Abc family so he is right. Nicki is going to slay and you and your halistosis having mouth will deal.

    • Navy Gravy September 29, 2015

      Ummm no. A lot of Networks are owned by the same Parent company. ABC Family is a different network which is why it’s on a different channel. Anywho she will be joining the likes of ‘The Middle’ and reruns of ‘Boy Meets World’.

      • It’s Barbie B**** September 29, 2015

        so in other words abc family is owned by abc…

      • Diego September 29, 2015

        Exactly ABC family is not network tv now that would b something to brag over who watches ABC family anyway they tried it ????????????

  4. Beydaqueen September 29, 2015

    It’s gonna flop like everything else she does

    • R8LATE September 29, 2015

      define flop please

      • John September 29, 2015

      • John September 29, 2015

        The Pinkprint

  5. FutureGaga September 29, 2015

    It will be cancelled after one season

    • R8LATE September 29, 2015

      One word.. Artpop *gags*

    • Car facts September 29, 2015

      cancelled like your fathers child support checks to your mother?

    • DD September 29, 2015

      The ABC Family Shows last incredibly long once they find an audience, or even after they lose half that audience. I picture it as A Different World for the younger set.

  6. BeyRihLiyah September 29, 2015

    Its on abc family enough said it will flop the only hit show on that channel is the pretty little liars garbage

    • Kitty September 29, 2015

      jelly? it’s ok sis at least we get to see aaliyah on the walking dead…

      • R8LATE September 29, 2015

        lmao that was so LOW .. you tried it b****. but im cracking up

      • Taylor’s Gambit September 29, 2015


      • BeyRihLiyah September 29, 2015

        Yawn zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz

      • BeyRihLiyah September 29, 2015

        lmaooo your making death jokes like onikas bÂstard child that she murdered isnt with aaliyah as we speak

      • AnnaliseKeatingsNewWig September 29, 2015


    • R8LATE September 29, 2015

      and THIS will make two. Lets be serious here..It’s gonna be a success even if its watched by her fans alone.

  7. Criticbb September 29, 2015

    Doing big things her empire is growing, 2016 is going to be Nicki’s year.

  8. R8LATE September 29, 2015

    See.. I don’t understand what the issue is. Y’all love praying for one’s down fall. “Its gonna flop after season one” .. “It’s on ABC Family, who even watches that?” BOTTOM LINE.. SHE’s getting a check, and YOU’re NOT. But THAT isn’t even my point. You all are failing to see the bigger picture here.

    Other b!tches are out here settling for reality TV shows.

    Can we RESPECT that a BLACK FEMALE RAPPER is executive producing and staring in a Sit-com (which we don’t have many of) about her OWN life.

    Only 2 other female rappers have had their own sit-coms. Queen Latifah and Eve. Let that sink in.

    • AllHailMariah September 29, 2015

      Girrrrrrrllllll????…. The Fact of the matter is She is suppose to be that b**** but her clothes at K-mart and she is having a comedy series on ABC family. If she gonna contracts make sure their lucrative before u put ur name on it!!!!!

      By the way………#IggyComeback #DigitalDistortion

      • R8LATE September 29, 2015

        I’m sure you just learned the word Lucrative from the previous post about Mariah signing with Mac.

        Anywho.. Nicki’s about her coin. She wouldn’t take it if it isn’t a substantial amount. There’s nothing wrong with her show being on ABC family. Do you not know the amount of traffic she’s about to bring to the station? She’s gonna bring in ratings just like she brought b!tches back to Kmart. lol its really simple

      • Ciah’s Turtle September 30, 2015

        Can’t even take U serious, stanning for Iggy. The fact that she has to “come back” after 1 album just makes U look foolish.

    • ENOUGH ONIKA September 29, 2015

      Yet this b*tch @R8LATE laughing at death jokes…..Take your fake moral a*s on somewhere. Fact of the matter is, the sh*t will most likely flop… me *kanye shrugs*

      • Car facts September 29, 2015

        yess bit, let the jealousy use you..

      • R8LATE September 29, 2015

        anddddd the moral of this story is that I will certainly laugh at the thought of your death as well. Rest in Hate ma.

      • AHS-HOTEL! September 29, 2015

        @R8Late sort of chewed you up there #ijs

  10. Skyfall September 29, 2015

    I’m here for it, I can’t wait to see who will be casted. Oh and btw Abc & Abc family are both under the parent company of Walt Disney.

    • R8LATE September 29, 2015

      Talk about it ! She knows what she’s doing. Nick’s very calculated in terms of business moves.

  11. Car facts September 29, 2015

    when that ad money comes rolling in, her forbs position will elevate

    • R8LATE September 29, 2015

  13. nicko September 29, 2015

    Another MILESTONE for the Queen of rap. #OnlyRapBitchOnTheFORBESList

  14. Fancy BISH September 29, 2015

    She went to LaGuardia, so this seems like a fit (and dream) for her…hopefully the studio audience doesn’t fake scream and whistle if Meeka Mill makes an appearance on the show…chile, LOL…but other than that, this is a boss move…she should consult with Miss Brandy on how to juggle the music with the acting…

    • AHS-HOTEL! September 29, 2015

      dunno if she’s the one to ask now. she can barely do it herself anymore

  15. What now September 29, 2015

    Sighs! I can’t wait 4 those low #s 2 roll n. The dragging that the Barfs will receive!

    • AHS-HOTEL! September 29, 2015

      low numbers like beyonce’s 4 ?

  16. Credits September 29, 2015

    This could be a success if they take the ‘everybody hates Chris’ route.

  17. September 29, 2015

    congratz to her.

  18. B2B September 29, 2015

    I salute Nicki’s hustle and Pinkprint album slayed period. F*** the sales, Nicki is listed as a writer on everything she touches so she gets paid more than these Pop artist who barely go platinum.

  19. bbb September 29, 2015

    Good luck to Nicki but funny is hard.
    I would like to see some type of drama like Beiing Mary Jane or A DRAMA WITH HUMOR but ….

    I hope she has success with her show. She is a hustler.

  20. Ju don’t even know September 29, 2015


  21. Barb-wire September 30, 2015
