It’s been a while since we last song “I Love You Smile” singer Shanice and her equally talented husband, Flex Alexander (One on One). Aside from the occasional appearance at television and music awards, or odd cameo on reality shows like Braxton Family Values or Tamar & Vince, we really don’t know much of what these two are up to — until now. That’s right, ladies and gents. Shanice and Flex are coming to TV in a one-hour reality special.
So what can we expect from the upcoming show, Flex & Shanice, airing on OWN? Well, a lot of people, that’s for sure!
According to the press release, these two have faced “career stumbling blocks and quickly hit financial rock bottom.” When Shanice and Flex saw they were not equipped to continue a super luxurious lifestyle, they packed up their two kids, 12-year-old Imani and 10-year-old Elijah, and moved into a rental home with their extended family in tow. With a total of nine people in their busy home, including Shanice’s “momager” Crystal, we can only imagine the shenanigans that will take place as cameras roll.
But don’t expect too much of a sob story. Flex is booking some gigs and has comedian, actress, and fellow OWN star Kym Whitley as a mentor, while Shanice is getting back into the studio. And of course, we can expect some drama to be had — especially when mama Crystal hears a bit of gossip claiming her to be the center of her daughter’s career woes. But will reaching out to former producer Kenneth “Babyface” Edmonds provide Shanice with any help?
“It’s hard being a broke celebrity,” Shanice reveals in the sneak peek below.
Will Shanice and Flex be able to a massive comeback? Guess we’ll just have to tune in to see! Flex & Shanice premieres on Saturday, May 31, at 10 p.m. ET on OWN. Will you be watching? Tell us your thoughts in the comments below!
