Hosted by actress/comedienne Kim Coles and TV personality Alesha Renee, the six-episode show is excited to welcome its newest cast member, actress Vanessa Williams. This dynamic trio will use their varying life experiences to deliver energetic, relevant and informative half-hour series that will present a national forum for Black women to talk about their most important beauty, health and quality-of-life matters.
BET is the #1 media and entertainment vehicle reaching African Americans” said Kisha Mitchell Williams, P&G Multicultural Brand Manager. “The network is the perfect media partner for the My Black is Beautiful TV series to continue helping women express their true and best self to the world.”
The premiere episode will feature a guest appearance from songstress Ledisi and focuses on the diversity and maintenance of Black hair. Throughout the season, the show will feature a host of experts giving tips and practical advice on how to embrace curves; how to remain fashionable on a budget; dating; money management; and landing the job of their dreams. Segments of the six shows will also feature content from the My Black is Beautiful LIVE! 2010 stops in Atlanta, Houston and New York City. During each LIVE! event, attendees were treated to makeovers, live entertainment and also provided the opportunity to participate in a national model search to be the new face of the My Black is Beautiful advertising campaign. The new faces will be revealed on the show this season.
“BET Networks has had a strong partnership with Procter and Gamble for many years, and we’re proud to utilize our unparalleled connection and engagement with African American women for the My Black is Beautiful television show” said Louis Carr, President BET Media Sales. “We look forward to partnering with the My Black is Beautiful movement on this kind of positive, uplifting programming for many years to come”
