“Hollywood Divas” is a new reality series from TV One starring five black actresses (Golden Brooks, Elise Neal, Paula Jai Parker, Countess Vaughn and Lisa Wu) who are navigating career, family and relationships all while trying to stay relevant in the ever-changing show business, which is known for overlooking black talent.
In an effort to stay relevant, these “forgotten stars” have decided to step outside the box, join together and put matters in their own hands to create their own short film and (hopefully) stage their own respective comebacks. But with a “former reality star” in the mix (FYI: real actors/actresses usually don’t respect reality TV), that could make things very difficult.
In the premiere episode of TV One’s “Hollywood Divas,” which aired last night, four veteran black actresses set out to self-produce the aforementioned short film that they hope will re-ignite their careers, however, they must overcome countless issues in the process, including the involvement of reality television star Lisa Wu from the first seasons of Bravo’s “Real Housewives of Atlanta.”
