HGTV property pro Egypt Sherrod and her husband, builder Mike Jackson star in "Married to Real Estate."

Powerhouse real estate broker and designer Egypt and her husband Mike know plenty about juggling booming property businesses, pleasing clients, managing a home and raising three daughters — and they make it look effortless and fun in their new HGTV series Married to Real Estate.

In the eight-episode season, which premieres on Thursday, Jan. 13, at 9 p.m. ET/PT, Egypt and Mike will marry their considerable complementary talents to help families land a perfect home in their ideal neighborhood.

Egypt will leverage her knowledge of the housing market, financial prowess, and design sensibilities — skills she honed in her business life and as the star of her HGTV hit series Property Virgins and Flipping Virgins — to find affordable houses in desirable Metro Atlanta locations for her clients.

And, with smart expenditures that yield breathtaking results, Mike and his team will renovate the properties to help increase their value and return on investment. "I'm obsessed with real estate and helping people find their perfect home," said Egypt.

"Mike and I find families a house in the right neighborhood and renovate it into their dream home — with the goal that they move in with equity in their new place. We aim to over - deliver for our clients."

"Egypt and I work well together, and we enjoy working together," said Mike. "We've lived in and renovated 11 homes that we eventually sold for a profit, so we're able to advise our clients on how to spend their money the right way to maximize a home's value."

In the premiere episode, Egypt and Mike will tour two unique properties with a couple who is passionate about mid-century modern style. The chosen house has original features the buyers want to keep, including a statement stone fireplace and wood-paneled walls, so Egypt and Mike will incorporate those elements into the renovation.

At the reveal, the duo will wow their clients with a bright, open floor plan that includes a sleek kitchen with a waterfall island and an entertaining room with a built-in bar. Throughout the season, Egypt and Mike also will collaborate and compromise to manage their own personal and home projects, including building a basement design studio, searching for a new office space and creating a big girl bedroom for their youngest child.

While waiting for Married to Real Estate to premiere, fans of Egypt and Mike can catch them in action as guest judges in the last season of HGTV's mega-hit home renovation competition series Rock the Block, as well as stream Egypt's previous HGTV series on discovery+.

The duo also will star as one of the four competing teams in season three of Rock the Block in early 2022.

Ryan Oubre wrote a lengthy Instagram post explaining why he divorced "Married at First Sight" star Clara Berghaus in July.

Oubre, who married flight attendant Clara on season 12, began his statement by saying he's "not here to debate anyone's feelings or emotions" and that "getting married to a stranger is indescribable."

While he stopped short of calling Berghaus a racist, Oubre suggested she was disrespectful of the Black culture.

"You can't truly be open to marry another race and not want to marry their culture (or at least at the minimum understand it)," he wrote, adding that the "Black experience and Black culture are not monolithic" and are "ever-evolving and ever-changing with time."

He added:

"What I can say is: walking into a family gathering and not speaking to anyone and scrolling through your phone will never fly and declining food (outside of a food allergy or avoidance) because you don't like the way it looks won't help either...

"by marrying into a different race/culture you inherently adopt parts of their identity" and "most importantly, your kids 100% will, and your kids will need you to help navigate it."

He wrote, "it's possible (all too often) to not be racist, while still being completely unaware" and that it is an "example of not understanding Black America."

Offset also opened up to Extra TV about his HBO Max reality show "The Hype", the streetwear competition series on HBO Max.

He said he enjoys working with Cardi, who is guest starring on The Hype.

"Working with her is always a beautiful thing. She's my wife, so working with her is always magical. She gonna come with the sauce and spunk."

The program gives the opportunity to 10 streetwear lovers to compete in a series of challenges focusing on the fashion industry, designing, and the latest street trends.

Offset is hosting and producing the series.

"I'm happy to not only be a co-signer for the show but a producer," said Offset, who added "We are giving opportunities to the culture."

Offset also called out the online trolls for body shaming Lizzo over her "Rumors" music video with Cardi B.

"You gotta stand up for our Black women 'cause they're always being torn down and beat down the most, I feel like. And they're the strongest... So we gotta uplift them... especially the ones that are uplifted and doing some good. And they comfortable in their skin... It's a beautiful thing."

HBO Max dropped the trailer for its new reality TV series "FBoy Island," hosted by comedian and actress Nikki Glaser, 37.

The series follows three sexy women - Nakia Renee, CJ Franco and Sarah Emig - who are joined by 24 men on a secluded island.

Among the 24 men are 12 "nice guys" and 12 self-professed f**k boys. According to Urbandictionary.com, a "f**k boy" is a player who is only interested in a relationship for sex.

The women's mission is to attempt to find love on the island, preferably with one of the nice guys. But nice guys usually finish last because American women are only attracted to thugs and f**k boys -- despite what women say about wanting a "good man."

According to the NY Post, "By the episode 10 finale, it will be revealed to the audience and the women which men are the nice guys and which were the FBoys all along."

"FBOY Island" premieres July 29 on HBO Max.

Mehgan James shared her views on cheating men in a recent episode of AllBlk's new reality TV series "Notorious Women."

The 31-year-old Houston native previously dumped former NBA player Kedrick Brown for cheating on her.

But her views on cheating men have evolved over the years. She isn't playing games when it comes to her peace of mind. Mehgan says her man can cheat on her -- as long he does it respectfully.

"Cheating respectfully, to me, is cheating where I don't find out," she said.

"Cheating respectfully because, believe it or not, your man is cheating," she said. "I believe that a guy can love you and cheat on you, I'm sorry. Guys are built different than us."

Mehgan added that her man should maintain control over his side pieces, use condoms, and don't bring home another woman's baby.

"I'll only leave my man for three [reasons]," the former "Bad Girls Club" star said. "You bring me home an STD, you have a baby on me, or if you gay."

"There's levels to cheating," said Stormey Ramdhane, who has two sons with Suge Knight. "Don't buy the b**** nothing, don't make her feel special. She can't be more special than me."

"How could you have this whole man list with all these requirements ... and then be okay with him cheating on you," said La’Britney, an R&B singer and former Love & Hip-Hop cast member.

This once popular TV family has fallen out of favor with the viewing public. The children are grown and not so adorable anymore. Negotiations are underway to bring them back, but does anyone care?

A certain reality TV family is in contract negotiations for a four year renewal to their contracts (with options each year). You guys think of this show as sort of herpes that never goes away. But I think it is kind of cute but I don't always recap it. I hate half hour shows. Mommy dearest makes six figures per episode plus a small executive producer check for a half hour show! The network loves the show because it is so cheap to make. The problem is that the cute little kids are all growing up and becoming a bit obnoxious and not that cute anymore.

The attorney repping the family is the best in the business. The negotiations are expected to continue for a few weeks. It is a complete renegotiation. No one in the family has an actual job, so they are desperate to keep the show on the air for as long as possible.

Over the weekend, Blac Chyna was dragged on Instagram after her new "boyfriend" was exposed as a down low male. Now the blogs claim she knew about her man's ghey lover all along.

Chyna recently signed a new deal with WEtv for a reality TV series called "The Real Blac Chyna."

The announcement of Chyna's new reality series didn't create much buzz, probably due to Chyna's previous reality TV flops.

According to Rhymeswithsnitch, the drama ensued after Chyna introduced her new man on Instagram. She posted a photo of hew new boo wearing a lacefront wig, along with the caption: "Mines."

An IG user who goes by the handle @sola_radio responded, "Yeah he mine to [sic]."

In response to another IG user who asked, "that's yo dude?", he said, "been my ni**a but I guess we sharing now."

A few fans initially fell for the gossip and innuendo, but not enough to create the buzz that Chyna was hoping for. She eventually deleted the pic.

But drama queen, @sola_radio, wasn't done. He posted a series of screenshots claiming he had receipts to prove Chyna was lurking on his boyfriend's page since September.

It wasn't long before Chyna's fans rolled their eyes and suggested the fake drama was all a stunt for a storyline.

"Everyone but the boy friend knew this was a story line. Now he's in feelings thinking he lost his little boy friend," wrote one Rhymeswithsnitch commenter.

Another blogger wrote: "This is clearly a storyline for her reality show. Why are people so stupid?"

That's a good question.
