According to TV One’s press release, Rickey Smiley For Real is a voyeuristic view into what makes Smiley a successful media mogul in radio, comedy and television, as well as captures the syndicated host as he juggles two families – one at home and the other at work.


Rickey Smiley For Real showcases the ‘real’ Rickey,” said D’Angela Proctor, TV One’s SVP of Original Programming and Production. “We see his real job, real friends, real kids and his really crazy life. As a successful member of our Radio One family, Rickey‘s return to TV One is sure to resonate with our audience.”

Joining Rickey on the show are his four children – sons Brandon and Malik and daughters D’Essence and Aaryn – as well as his extended family of co-workers, colleagues and friends. There will also be appearances by his business consultant Bruce Demps, childhood friend and family lawyer Nikita Blockton, radio co-hosts Da Brat, Gary With Da TeaHeadkrack, Rock T and Juicy, and radio show producers Beyonce and Hollywood.
