The new season of TV One’s popular docu-series “Rickey Smiley for Real” debuted Tuesday night to much fanfare. The beloved comedian and his cast hosted an exclusive watch party at Atlantic Station’s Regal Cinema in Midtown – Atlanta.

“Rickey Smiley For Real” takes a humorous look at Rickey Smiley’s hectic life as he juggles his career as a nationally syndicated radio host, stand-up comedian, actor, TV personality and businessman along with his daily duties as a single father of five. Being a mega media mogul is not always as a glamourous as it’s cracked up to be; Rickey is constantly pulled in different directions between the demands of fatherhood and the needs of his work family.  Nonetheless, he keeps them all laughing while they navigate new experiences together!

Cast members in attendance included Da Brat with her musical protégé Cornbread, Headkrack, Juicy, Gary with the Tea and Porsha Williams. Other celebrities in attendance included media personalities Ed Lover and Willie Moore Jr., singer and former reality star Meelah, reality star Tommie Lee + actors Reece Odum and Mike Merrill.
