Sandra Denton, better known as Pepa of the now-disbanded female rap supergroup Salt-N-Pepa, introduced her new reality TV show, “Let’s Talk About Pep,” on Jan. 11.
It’s built around Pepa dating again after “four years of celibacy.” From 1999 to 2001, she was married to Treach of the rap group Naughty By Nature.
There are too many reality shows. And how “real” is anyone going to be with cameras rolling?
Beverly Johnson, one of original Black supermodels, is reportedly being sued for “palimony” by a guy by the name of Mark Burk. He wants $5 million in “damages,” alleging that she agreed to give half of what she earned during the time they were together. In essence, the claim is that he was paid to be her “pretend partner.”
Hopefully, these reports are not entirely accurate and Johnson isn’t that gullible or desperate.
BETCHA DIDN’T KNOW…that Angela Bofill once sang in a group called “the Puerto Rican Supremes.”
