Robin Thicke‘s 2013 just seems to get better and better. After scoring his first #1 album on the hem’s of the year’s biggest hit ‘Blurred Lines’, the singer got news that his hit just logged its 16th week atop Billboard’s R&B charts – a new record.
Now, the blue-eyed soulster is set to appear on ‘Oprah’s Next Chapter’ for a candid interview to air in October.
“Thicke is expected to discuss the impact of “Blurred Lines” the single, and the positive and negative response to his controversial MTV VMAs performance with Miley Cyrus. He’ll also talk about his family life with wife Paula Patton, his role as a father and working with collaborators such as Pharrell and will.i.am.”
Thicke’s sit-down will air Oct. 13 at 9 PM ET/PT on OWN.
Move over ‘Preacher’s Wives’ and ‘Preachers Daughters’! A breath of fresh air for reality TV may be coming in the form of a new source – ‘Preachers of L.A.’.
The reality venture, set to kick off Wednesday, October 9th at 10/9c, is Oxygen channel’s new reality show about the lives of six L.A. based megachurch pastors – Bishop Noel Jones, Bishop Clarence McClendon, Pastor Wayne Chaney, Bishop Ron Gibson, Pastor Jay Haizlip and Pastor/Gospel singer Deitrick Haddon. The material extravagance of athlete’s wives, confrontational drama of real housewives, and BET Sunday Night televangelist zeal all rolled up into one, the recipe for the venture has already proven itself a polarizing one even days before its premiere.
This series meets at the intersection of religion, vanity, and good TV to boot – a mixture disconcerting for many of the religious sect. Walking the fine line of dangerously realizing suspicions and stereotypes of the lavish lives of megachurch pastors who drive Bentleys for Jesus and travel in entourages, the show definitely succeeds in entertainment value and being a catalyst for conversation.
It’s hard not to appreciate the “in-your-face” brand of honesty that the show delivers oh-so-well. But, once the masses get a taste of what the sextet are offering a debate will surely arise about its intentions. Is there a thinly veiled facade of exposing people to Christianity and spreading the gospel? Or are we capitalizing on an opportunistic desire to expand brands into the realm of celebrity?
