It looks like Carlos King is expanding his reality TV resume once again.

Fresh off his exclusive sit-down with LaTavia Roberson on Tuesday morning, it’s been announced the King of Reality TV has a new project in the works with some familiar faces.

WEtv ordered a season of his new reality series ‘Bold & Bougie’ which will be produced by his Kingdom Reign Entertainment.

The series, which is currently in production, will debut next year and will star a group of known Atlanta women including former ‘Basketball Wives’ star, Malaysia Pargo; former ‘Atlanta Exes’ star and Usher‘s ex-wife, Tameka Foster; as well as former ‘The Real Housewives of Atlanta’ friend, Gocha Hawkins, former RHOA exec, Princess Banton-Lofters; and Ne-Yo‘s ex-wife, Crystal Smith.

The show will follow the group as they refuse to let societal expectations or age define them.

Per the logline, the women of Bold & Bougie have spent their entire lives being cheerleaders for others. Now, it’s their turn to be the center of attention as they support each other and form an unbreakable sisterhood. In each hour-long episode, witness the growing pains that come from love, loss – and hangovers, because they still know how to have a good time.

Malaysia Pargo is an entrepreneur and mother of three coming off an eye-opening year following her divorce from former NBA player Jannero Pargo. She previously starred on VH1’s Basketball Wives. Tameka Foster is a wardrobe stylist to Hollywood’s elite, who was previously married to Usher. She also previously starred in VH1’s Atlanta Exes. Gocha Hawkins is a restauranteur, mother of two and a grandmother of four, who spent two years in prison for selling drugs before making it big in the cosmetology business and then hospitality.

Princess Banton-Lofters is a successful talent scout, business owner and mother. She created and exec produced The Real Housewives of Atlanta. Crystal Smith is a restaurant owner and single mother of three fresh off a tumultuous year featuring a nasty divorce from singer songwriter Ne-Yo.

Bold & Bougie is produced by Kingdom Reign Entertainment with King serving as executive producer. Brent Nisbett serves as showrunner and Angela Molloy and Noella Charles exec produce for WEtv. Rajah Ahmed is co-exec producer.


King took to social media on Tuesday evening to share his excitement about the news.
