“Rickey Smiley for Real” is back and this time it appears that there is more drama and conflict and not just within the Smiley household. The Season 3 premiere airs Tuesday, November 15 at 8 p.m. EST on TV One.
According to the press release, Aaryn, Smiley’s youngest daughter, has moved to Bogota, Colombia because her mother received a promotion. The family travels to visit and secrets are revealed. Meanwhile, Da Brat, who is now an artist manager, tries to get her first act signed– a temperamental rapper named Cornbread. She meets with record labels, artists and her mentor Jermaine Dupri, and quickly learns that being an artist was a lot easier than managing one.
Gary with da Tea is on a mission to host his own talk show. Focused on his goal, he meets with TV producers and tries to persuade them, as well as the morning show, to see his vision. When a co-host is recommended to complement his show persona, Gary auditions Porsha Williams, Tiny and Derek J among other personalities, in his quest to be the next big daytime talk show host.
Finally, while Smiley begins to reconcile with his estranged nephew Craig, his relationship with his oldest son, Brandon, has become so strained that they haven’t communicated with each other in months. Both men are being stubborn about the situation, and it will take a tremendous effort from his family, the morning show crew and the family therapist to try to get them back together.
