The second season of TV One’s original hit sitcom The Rickey Smiley Show is vastly approaching and a few details about the show’s guest stars have been revealed. According to Monday’s press release, a number of ATL reality-stars and singers will make appearances throughout the 13-week episodes which premiere starting Friday, July 26 at 9 p.m.
RHOA’s Kenya Moore, Cynthia Bailey and Porsha Stewart as well as Love and Hip-Hop ATL’s Lil Scrappy and Momma Dee are scheduled to make cameos on the show. Other stars include R&B Divas Angie Stone and Syleena Johnson, rappers David Banner and Doug E. Fresh and Gospel diva Dottie People along with Pastor Creflo Dollar.
The Rickey Smiley Show is loosely based on the real-life experiences and antics of the comedian, TV and radio personality Rickey Smiley. This second season intends to pulls TV One viewers even deeper into “Rickey’s World” while introducing two additional alter egos to his already beloved, wacky troupe of trademark personalities. Also returning for the wild ride is Smiley’s all-star cast including Ray J, J. Anthony Brown, Roz Ryan, Jay Lewis, Ajiona Alexus, Gabriel Burgess, Noree Victoria and Demetria McKinney.
“We are thrilled to debut The Rickey Smiley Show season two this July,” commented Maureen Guthman, SVP of Program Strategy and Acquisitions for TV One. “The series’ exceptional first season run—anchored by Rickey’s relatable and hysterical characters—puts a twist on our TV One motto by demonstrating that the network is a place ‘where black comedy unfolds.’ We are eager to bring an even-stronger season two to our viewers and build upon the network’s successful Friday night Retro Comedy programming block.”
