13 Celebrity Couples That Should Have A Reality TV Show

Diddy and Cassie

Seemingly everyone is being offered a reality TV show nowadays.

Want to remain relevant? Perhaps revive your career by promoting your professional endeavors? No problem, VH1, MTV, E! and a gang of other channels have got you covered..

But as imagined, when it comes to reality TV there's levels to this shit. Producers don't just want one star, they want two. Preferably a popping Hollywood couple that doesn't mind conjuring up a messy storyline boosted ratings. But then again, there are some couples who have managed to use reality TV to their advantage, making it through it's curse of divorce or break up and a lack of sanity by the time it's finale hits the air.

While couple reality TV shows can be an absolute buzz kill, there's still hope as it feeds our needs for drama, comedy, and love. Honestly, who doesn't love a good episode of Chrissy & Mr. Jones or Giuliana and Bill? All hope isn't lost for true love when it comes to reality TV and we're definitely not in short supply of entertainment-purposes-only couples (but we won't shade anyone on this glorious Sunday).

Vixens, check out some celebrity couples we think should have their own reality TV show.

Kim K Name Change Cover

Kim and Kanye

Although the couple made their relationship public to the world via reality TV in 2012 we want to Keep Up With The West's more than the Kardashian's to be honest.

Chris Brown and Karreuche Tran

This young couple is a bag of trailmix (word to Lil Kim, lol) and not in the good way. Their public love triangle with Bad Gal RiRi makes for a Stevie J, Joseline, and Meme situation does it not?

Erica Mena and Bow Wow

Bow Wow and Erica Mena

Sorry for us being highly skeptical of this relationship but their engagement screams like a major troll. Or then again, they could prove us wrong, ink a deal with Mona Scott and show and prove their love is real. We just hope Bow Wow doesn't get played like Lil Chipotle Cyn.

Alicia Keys and Swizz Beatz

Swizz Beatz and Alicia Keys

We absolutely adore the Deans and wouldn't mind tuning in once a week to see what this artistic growing family is up to.

Asap Rocky and Chanel

A$AP Rocky and Chanel Iman

The mystique of their fairly private relationship entices us. This trill young couple is one of our favorites.

Monica and Shannon Brown IG

After ditching the Rocky side of things, our homegirl in our head, Mo (you guys know her as Monica), got her a winner. And by the looks of Instagram, she's happier than ever. Why not make a profit off of it too?

diddy and cassie poolside

Diddy and Cassie

For this duo stunting is an absolute habit. While Diddy is always in the spotlight, Cassie is a bit more laid back and we'd definitely like to hear more from the bad jawn on his arm.

Mila Kunis and Ashton Kutcher

Mila Kunis and Ashton Kutcher

Fresh from the delivery room the That 70's Show couple should document their made-for-each other love story and bundle of joy. Sorry Demi.

faithful hubbies j legend

John Legend and Chrissy Teigen 

The relationship of smooth R&B singer Legend and outspoken model Teigen would be something we'd commit to watching without a doubt.

Selena and Justin Bieber

Justin Bieber and Selena Gomez

Aw, remember the highs and lows of puppy love? While we're not definite these two are on as of now we'd love to see the dynamics of their relationship as Bieber's bad boy status is tamed by Gomez' sweet nature.

Beckham Family

David and Victoria Beckham

Move over royal family, the Beckhams are without a doubt our favorite duo from across the pond. Their beautiful family would make for great wholesome TV and we're dying to get a look-see inside Victoria's fashion haven.

Brad Pitt, Angelina Jolie and family

 

Brad Pitt and Angelina Pitt

Brad and Angelina have a gang of kids, they should  have earned a humanitarian award.We can already imagine the title being something like The Pitts:From All Walks of Life—perfect right?

"The Place Beyond The Pines" Premiere - 2012 Toronto International Film Festival

Eva Mendes and Ryan Gosling

Anytime we think of Gosling we immediately think of The Notebook. If he's as sweet as his character Noah we're here for a 30 minute show. And if the new MILF has any appearances, we'll campaign to make it an hour long.

Kush & Splendor: 5 CBD Beauty Products That’ll Take Your Self-Care Routine From 0 To 100

Lotions, creams, and salves—oh my! With cannabidiol (CBD) popping up in just about every product you can imagine, the cannabis-infused beauty industry is clearly on the come-up. In fact, analysts predict that the “wellness” movement—as well as the legalization of Mary Jane across the world—will help rake in $25 billion globally in the next 10 years, according to Business Insider. That’s 15 percent of the $167 billion skincare market.

And what better way to up the ante on one’s wellness routine than with all-natural CBD? Just ask Dr. Lana Butner, naturopathic doctor and acupuncturist at NYC’s Modrn Sanctuary, who incorporates CBD in her treatments.

“CBD is a fantastic addition to acupuncture sessions for both its relaxation and anti-inflammatory, pain-relieving effects,” Butner shares with Vixen. “The calming effects of CBD allows for patients to deeply relax into the treatment and really tap into the parasympathetic nervous system, which is responsible for rest, digestion and muscle repair/regeneration.”

She adds that CBD’s pain-relieving effects are “far-reaching,” from muscular and joint pains to migraines and arthritis—and even IBS and indigestion.

The magic lies in CBD’s ability to impact endocannabinoid receptor activity in our bodies. Without getting too wordy, our bodies come equipped with a system called the endocannabinoid system (ECS), which is the HBIC over our sleep, appetite, pain and immune system response. Also known as cannabidiol, CBD teams up with this system to help reduce inflammation and interact with neurotransmitters. According to Healthline, CBD has also been scientifically shown to impact the brain’s receptors for serotonin, the neurotransmitter responsible for regulating our mood and social behavior.

All that said, it’s important to note that not all CBD products are created equal. Many brands cashing in on the green beauty wave use hemp seed oil, sometimes referred to as cannabis sativa seed oil, in place of CBD... which doesn’t make them any less great! Hemp seed oil is actually high in antioxidants, amino acids, and omega-3 and -6 fatty acids—all of which are thebomb.com for your skin.

“It’s generally viewed as a superfood and is great for adding nutritional value to your diet,” Ashley Lewis, co-founder of Fleur Marché, told Well and Good last month. “In terms of skin care, it’s known as a powerful moisturizer and skin softener that doesn’t clog pores or contribute to oily skin.”

However, when companies start marketing CBD and hemp oil as one-in-the-same, that’s when things get a bit tricky.

“The biggest issue is that hemp seed oil and CBD are two totally different compounds that come from different parts of the hemp plant, have different makeups, and different benefits,” Lewis added. “Marketing them as the same thing just isn’t accurate and does a disservice to consumers who are expecting certain benefits that they won’t get from hemp seed oil and who are often paying more for what they think is CBD.”

So if you’re looking to benefit from the perks specifically attributed to CBD, make sure you’re reading labels before buying, and don’t be afraid to ask questions. Hell, ask for a product’s test results, while you’re at it. It never hurts to be sure.

Now that we’ve got that out of the way, are you ready to see what all the hype is about? For this 4/20, we rounded up a few CBD (and hemp!)-infused products to help give your self-care routine a bit of a boost. Looks like your holiday just got that much kushier. You’re welcome!

Note: Data and regulations surrounding CBD and its use are still in development. That said, please don’t take anything written in this post as medical or legal advice, and definitely double check the laws in your state. Also, please do your body a favor and hit up your doctor before trying any new supplements. We’re just tryna look out for you. Okay? Okay. Read on.

Vivica A. Fox Explains Past Hesitance Behind 'Two Can Play That Game' Script

In a new interview with Essence, actress Vivica A. Fox discussed how she initially turned down her role in Two Can Play That Game based on the script. The established entertainer said it's her mission to ensure that black people are positively portrayed onscreen, and noticed the aforementioned film's prose didn't live up to those standards.

"I think the reason why—no I know the reason why—I've been doing this for such a long time is that I fight," Fox said. "When we did Two Can Play That Game, I fought for the way we talked, walked, the way we loved each other." The Set It Off actress continued to state that she consistently declined Two Can Play That Game before signing on to play the lead role. "Because the script, when I first got it, I turned it down three times because it just wasn't a good representation of African-Americans, so I fought them on everything," she noted. "I want to make sure that the images of African-Americans are as positive and as true as they can possibly be."

In 2001, the romantic comedy debuted to fanfare, boasting an all-star cast of Morris Chestnut, Mo'Nique, Anthony Anderson, Bobby Brown, Gabrielle Union, Wendy Raquel Robinson, and more. Directed by Mark Brown (Barbershop, Iverson, How To Be A Player), Fox plays a career driven person named Shante Smith who navigates a curveball when her boyfriend Keith Fenton (Chestnut) cheats on her with a co-worker.

After its release, Two Can Play That Game raked in over $22 million at the box office.

BET To Unveil Edible Billboard For 'Being Mary Jane' Wedding Finale

As Being Mary Jane comes to an end, BET is willing to offer fans a taste of what's to come in the series finale.

The network has enlisted the help of Ayesha Curry, celebrity cook and cookbook author, to create an edible billboard that also doubles as a wedding cake. The sweet treat will commemorate Mary Jane's (played by Gabrielle Union) nuptials in the two-hour series finale.

On April 20 from 1:00 P.M. to 7:00 P.M. at Brooklyn's Atlantic Terminal in New York, fans will be presented with the edible billboard. At the intersection of Ashland Place and Hanson Place, the closer Being Mary Jane enthusiasts get to the billboard the quicker they'll notice that the four-tiered wedding cake is created from individual boxes, each containing a slice of Curry's prized wedding cake.

All fans have to do is pull a box from the billboard, snap a picture for the 'Gram, take a bite and enjoy. Although lovers of the show won't be able to celebrate with Mary Jane herself, biting into a slice of her wedding cake, for free, is the next best thing.

Don't forget to tune into the series finale of Being Mary Jane on Tues. (April 23) at 8/7 c.
