Over the weekend, TheYBF.com tipped you off about an upcoming show starring frenemies NeNe Leakes and Kim Zolciak-Biermann. And now BRAVO is confirming the news and has released the working title, “NeNe and Kim: The Road to Riches." Also, OXYGEN has given Olympic gold medalist Gabrielle Douglas her own docu-series. Deets inside….
On Saturday, TheYBF.comexclusively reported about an new reality series starring friends-turned-enemies-turned-friends again NeNe Leakes and Kim Zolciak-Biermann. And now, BRAVO has confirmed the news (along with the ladies) and have revealed the working title.
After publicly reconciling on “Watch What Happens Live” back in December, the ladies are now gearing up to bring their crazy, rollercoaster friendship to a brand new reality show. We told you the show would be serving up a Thelma and Louise road trip tease and that was also confirmed.
Per the press release, the ladies will drive out of their comfort zones and across the country to discover America on a one-of-a-kind adventure. The road to L.A. may be paved with good intentions, but that doesn’t mean they won’t occasionally drive each other crazy. NeNe and Kim together non-stop? You know they’re going to get into it.
The ladies took to social media to announce their new projects. NeNe captioned, " IT'S OFFICIALLY @kimzolciakbiermann and I have our own spin off show only on #BRAVO! We announced it today in New York City with our entire Bravo & True Entertainment family. Thank you for believing in us we are about to hit The Road To Riches."
Kim happily announced, "It's OFFICIAL!!! My girl @neneleakes and I are doing a show together! We are in NYC today together and made the BIG announcement!! We are so excited for " Road to Riches #dontbetardyfortheBiermann's #BRAVO"
And, of course, their hubbies were there to support their new venture. NeNe's husband Gregg Leakes and Kim's hubby Kroy Biermann came out to NYC to be with their significant others for the big reveal. The Biermanns have plenty to celebrate as they will also be starring in brand new season of “Don’t Be Tardy."
Along with NeNe & Kim’s new series, there are a host of new shows coming to BRAVO. Below are a few:
“Married to Medicine Houston”
The popular franchise heads to the largest medical community in the country for "Married to Medicine Houston." These diverse and driven young doctors and wives of physicians look like they have it all— educated, sexy and at the top of their game. But peel back the layers and you will see that new obstacles might threaten their momentum. After punishing years of sacrifice and putting life on hold, how they navigate marriage, children, family and social pressure will either derail their promising careers or prove that they can have it all. Produced by Fremantle North America and developed by Purveyors of Pop with Matt Anderson and Nate Green serving as Executive Producers.
“Ladies of Dallas” (working title) From glamorous galas to scintillating scandals, and supersized spending habits, life in the elite tier of the Dallas social scene is hard to crack, and even harder to maintain. Whether driven by vanity, personal validation, or career advancement, these Lone Star ladies all share the same goal- to climb the social ladder and stay on top. Produced by Goodbye Pictures with Rich Bye and Andrew Hoegl serving as Executive Producers.
Coming to OXYGEN....
Olympic gold medalist Gabrielle Douglas will star (and executive produce) in a brand new docu-series documenting her road to the upcoming 2016 Olympics with the working titled “Douglas Family Gold”. After becoming the first African-American to win the individual all-around gold medal at the 2012 Summer Olympics, the young athlete is ready to repeat history in her quest for some more gold.
Here’s a synopsis of the show below:
Gabrielle “Gabby” Douglas stunned the world in 2012 by becoming the first African American in history to win the individual all-around gold medal at the Summer Olympics. Behind her meteoric rise was a supportive family willing to sacrifice everything for years to help her dream. Now 19, Gabby is ready to do it all over again in hopes of making it back to the medal podium in 2016. The bi-coastal Douglas family shuttles between California and Ohio to support Gabby’s training regimen while also juggling their own lives. Her brother John is the family's second Olympic hopeful in track and field, while devoted sisters Arie and Joy are eager to blaze their own paths. “Momager” Natalie keeps this tight-knit family in-check, knowing regardless of what happens, “Team Douglas” has already won gold.
Nick Cannon and his NCredible Entertainment company (along with Michael Goldman) will be brining a new reality series to OXYGEN tentatively titled, “The Hustle.” Peep what we can expect below:
This coming-of-age series follows the dynamic and hard-working assistants to successful entrepreneurs and entertainers. With blood, sweat and tears, these ambitious 20-somethings are willing to do whatever it takes to learn the ropes one step at a time so they can climb the ranks. These assistants are exposed to a life of privilege at work, traveling on private jets and attending lavish red carpet events, however, at the end of the day, they struggle just to pay rent and find time for their own personal lives.
And a new show “Preachers of Atlanta” will be joining the franchise. Here's what we can expect:
Atlanta is not only the home to fast cars, sprawling mansions and the southern elite, but a new generation of up-and-coming preachers who are superstars of the pulpit. The third installation from the popular franchise, “Preachers of Atlanta” documents the lives of the city’s young elite mega-pastors as they focus on the daily struggles and triumphs as husbands, wives, fathers, mothers and friends, while also maintaining their duties as men and women of God.
Also, “Sisterhood of Hip Hop” will returning for season two. Set your DVRs!

The Next night....
Meek Mill hosted the Hennessy V.S Sunday party at Cafe Iguana.
He hit the club around 2am with girlfriend Nicki Minaj (shown atop with DJ Khalid). The twosome are really big on PDA. When Meek hit up her Paris tour stop a few days ago, they got real cutesy on stage. Back at Iguana, the crowd went wild when Nicki hit the building and she even posed for pics with fans.
During the night, Meek performed four of his popular hits and a new song on his upcoming album.
Jennifer Lopez and boyfriend Casper Smart dined at the Griddle restaurant in Hollywood.
It's rumored that J LO and Casper never broke up (a few weeks ago) and this was all a stunt to hype her movie The Boy Next Door. Well, J Lo isn't commenting about the rumors but we're happy to report her latest film HOME is atop the box office with a $54 Million intake over the weekend!
