WE tv DROPS SNEAK PEEK AND REVEALS THE CAST FOR ALL-NEW SEASON OF “MARRIAGE BOOT CAMP: HIP HOP EDITION” PREMIERING THURSDAY, JULY 2 AT 9PM

Five new hip hop couples are taking a step back from the game on an all-new season of “Marriage Boot Camp: Hip Hop Edition,” premiering Thursday, July 2 at 9pm on WE tv. This season PHAEDRA (“The Real Housewives of Atlanta”) and MEDINA (rapper and actor), WILLIE and SHANDA (“Love and Hip Hop Hollywood”), TAHIRY (“Love and Hip Hop New York”) and VADO (rapper), KURUPT (rapper) and TONI (model), and HAZEL-E (“Love and Hip Hop Hollywood”) and DE’VON (model) have the awards, the view counts, the platinum records and the love of millions of fans, but they can’t seem to secure a relationship with the person who matters most.

Dr. Ish’s unique sensibilities will be doled in a no B.S. tough love fashion in order to pull these celebrities out of the clouds and put them back into reality, along with Judge Lynn Toler who brings her own style to the drills, which aim to test the boot campers and answer: which couple makes beautiful music together, and who should go solo?

“Marriage Boot Camp: Hip Hop Edition” is produced for WE tv by Thinkfactory Media, an ITV America company.

ABOUT “CRIMINAL MINDS”:

“Criminal Minds” revolves around an elite team of FBI profilers who analyze the country’s most twisted criminal minds, anticipating their next moves before they strike again. The Behavioral Analysis Unit’s most prominent agent is David Rossi, a founding member of the BAU who returns to help the team solve new cases, while pursuing some unfinished business of his own. The team is led by Special Agent Aaron Hotchner, a family man who is able to gain people’s trust and unlock their secrets. Other members include Emily Prentiss, the daughter of high-powered diplomats who must prove her worth to Hotchner; Special Agent Derek Morgan, an expert on obsessional crimes; Special Agent Dr. Spencer Reid, a classically misunderstood genius whose social IQ is as low as his intellectual IQ is high; Jennifer “J.J.” Jareau, a confident young agent who acts as the unit liaison for the team, and Penelope Garcia, a computer wizard who helps research the cases. Each member brings his or her own area of expertise to the table as they pinpoint predators’ motivations and identify their emotional triggers in the attempt to stop them.



WE TV ANNOUNCES EMMY AWARD-WINNER LONI LOVE AS THE NEW VOICE OF POP CULTURE PHENOM “BRIDEZILLAS”





WE TV ANNOUNCES EMMY AWARD-WINNER LONI LOVE AS THE NEW VOICE OF POP CULTURE PHENOM “BRIDEZILLAS”
The Popular Series Returns to a New Night on WE tv’s Thursday Night Lineup This Fall
NEW YORK, NY – May 18, 2020 – WE tv announced today that Emmy Award and NAACP Image Award winner Loni Love is the new voice of its signature series “Bridezillas,” which returns this fall to a new night on WE tv. Loni Love is currently a co-host of “The Real,” the nationally syndicated daily talk show, which has been nominated for numerous Daytime Emmy Awards and won the 2018 Emmy for Outstanding Entertainment Talk Show Hosts. “Bridezillas” returned in 2018 after a multi-year hiatus to ratings success and glowing fan reception for the new reboot. The fan favorite phenomenon will return this fall for season 13.

“We are thrilled to have a multi-faceted talent like Loni join ‘Bridezillas’ as the new voice of the show,’” said Marc Juris, President of WE tv. “Her comedic wit is unmatched, and we can’t wait for longtime fans of the series and new audiences to see the energy that Loni brings to each episode.”

“I am thrilled to host and celebrate love with these beautiful brides!!! We will all see their outrageous, hilarious and at times touching stories as they prepare for their dream wedding…it’s about to be lit!!! Bridezillas is back!!!” said Love.

Loni Love is a celebrated comedienne, host, actress, author, and TV personality. Early in her career, Love was a regular at the legendary Laugh Factory. In 2003, Love won the Jury Prize for Best Stand-Up on “Star Search,” and went on to showcase on HBO’s “U.S. Comedy Arts Festival” in Aspen. She has been a recurring guest DJ on “The Ellen DeGeneres Show” and served as co-host of the GRACIE Award-winning radio show “Café Mocha” with rapper YoYo, where they have interviewed President Barack Obama and First Lady Michelle Obama, as well as John legend, and countless others. Additionally, she has guest hosted on Fashion Police and been a correspondent for Entertainment Tonight and E!. She has appeared in films such as “Mother’s Day,” “Paul Blart Mall Cop 2,” “Soul Plane,” among many others, and is the subject of the documentary “Being Loni Love.”

“Bridezillas” famously spotlights ‘normal’ women who have turned into ‘Bridezillas,’ all in the name of planning the ‘perfect’ wedding. Each episode follows two hilariously unhinged brides as they journey toward the altar — we learn about the brides and their grooms, their backgrounds, relationship histories, and see how the wedding has taken over their lives. Tempers and tensions flare, everyone’s patience is tested, and monumental meltdowns become inevitable as our ‘Bridezillas’ are pushed to the edge as they strive to throw the event of a lifetime.

The series is executive produced by Shahram Qureshi. Executive producers for WE tv are Lauren P. Gellert, Kate Farrell and Angela Molloy.

‘Mama June: Family Crisis’ Premieres 3/27 on WEtv





The Shocking Brand New Season of ‘Mama June: Family Crisis’ Premieres
FRIDAY, MARCH 27 at 9pm on WE tv

The fourth season of “Mama June: Family Crisis” premiering Friday, March 27 at 9pm on WE tv, follows the Shannon family trying to cope with the fallout of Mama’s arrest, drug addiction and dysfunctional relationship with boyfriend Geno. Leaning on each other for strength and support, the family struggles together to maintain hope for June’s healthy return.

June’s daughter Lauryn (“Pumpkin”) and husband Josh have taken custody of June’s youngest daughter Alana (“Honey Boo Boo”) and are raising her along with their adorable toddler Ella— a ray of sunshine oblivious to the chaos unfolding around her. June’s sister Joanne (“Doe Doe”) is determined to find June and separate her from Geno, who the family believes is a bad influence.

Jennifer, June’s nemesis and wife of June’s ex-boyfriend “Sugar Bear”, is eager to step into the spotlight vacated by June, winning a major magazine cover contest showcasing her own “not to hot” transformation. However, when Alana starts acting out on social media Jennifer decides it’s time for her and Sugar Bear to step up and demand full custody of Alana.

Throughout the season there are many joyous family moments: Alana’s return to high school and budding comedy career, Ella’s unforgettable baby pageant debut, and breakthrough family therapy moments with Dr. Ish that help them move forward together in a healthy way. However, constantly lurking in the background is the frightening decline of their family matriarch — as June faces legal problems, physical deterioration, money issues and suspected abuse from the partner she refuses to abandon.

Will June finally hit her rock bottom and seek professional help? Can she return to the family as the “old June” they all miss terribly? Can love and belief in each other get them through a family crisis that is all too relatable to thousands of American families? Find out when “Mama June: Family Crisis” premieres Friday, March 27 at 9pm only on WE tv.

“Mama June: Family Crisis” is produced for WE tv by Thinkfactory Media an ITV America company.
