Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say (1 ):
Kids say (2 ):

This somewhat voyeuristic series is intended to challenge the tabloid gossip that's surrounded its stars for years -- and to give viewers a chance to see both women outside of the large shadows cast by their former celebrity partners. Unfortunately, there's so much discussion about the hip-hop industry (and their roles in it) that it's hard to look beyond it. Adding to this is the women's rather luxurious lifestyle (courtesty of Tiny's former singing career and Toya's high-profile divorce).

That said, there's also something very poignant and genuine about the women's personal struggles. Their stories offer a reality check to anyone who thinks that it's easy to live in the limelight -- or that money is the solution to all problems. And, unlike many reality shows, this one offers the chance to watch two women empower themselves ... rather than allowing themselves to be objectified by men.
