The ink on their marriage certificate hasn’t even dried and Ne-Yo‘s wife, Crystal Renay, is already capitalizing off his celebrity.
The Instagram model is featured in Eva Pigford‘s new reality TV show, About The Business on BET network. The series, which premieres tonight, features a tight-knit group of Hollywood socialites (six women and one gay guy) who balance their Hollywood careers and family life.
“Catch me and my hubby tonight on #AboutTheBusiness Airing only on @bet as we celebrate our engagement with loved ones,” Renay writes in a post on Instagram.com. “The process gets crazy and ‘FRIENDS’ get even crazier! Tonight 10p/9c #AboutTheBusinessBET #FianceeFatale.”
According to BET, Renay is a “model facing two big milestones: she is newly engaged to singer, Ne-Yo, and pregnant with her long-sought-after first child. With her A-list wedding approaching and a baby on the way, the former video vixen hires friend Sparkle to plan the big event to ease some of the stress. Will Crystal’s lofty demands push her friendship over the edge?
Too bad Ne-Yo can’t see that he is being played by his new wife for her fame and glory. The late great singer/songwriter Rick James called men like Ne-Yo, “suckers for love.”
