Just like the chocolate and peanut butter for which I nicknamed him, two people with nothing in common but journalism degrees and the great state of Arkansas, have finally come together to make a "delicious" TV show. Will you watch?
Check it out on BET, 11 p.m. EST/ 10 p.m. Central time.
Yes, Snobbinistas! It is finally time for BET's "Don't Sleep" with T. J. Holmes to premiere, and yours truly is among the show's writers. My and T. J.'s story is a grand story that gives false hope to actual insane stalkers everywhere, as I was not A) insane or B) a true stalker, but a girl who said T. J.'s name in a bathroom mirror three times until he appeared and gave me a job on his TV show.
In what was either the most brilliant or insane decision of both our careers (I like to think it was a little of both!), I'm now a full-time staffer on "Don't Sleep," where he must endure me calling him "West Memphis" all the time and cackling maniacally at my own witticisms.
The show is a great blend of hope and hype, political and pop, cultures both low and high coming together to create a storm of information and wit. Then it's all wrapped up nicely with a profound and punchy panel of our peers in the middle. The goal was to create something we could be proud of, that we would watch if we weren't the ones writing/producing/hosting the thing.
So, I hope you like it! We made it just for you!
