Season one of BET’s Real Husbands of Hollywood ended last week and taping for the following season has begun – with a few surprises in store.
“Season two, I’m giving you a lot to look forward to,” the show’s co-creator comedian Kevin Hart tells HipHollywood.
Adding to the anticipation are reports that comedian Chris Rock will be joining the all-star team. The funny-man will be replacing singer Robin Thicke on the upcoming season.
“I just watched the show and it just seemed like they were having so much fun,” Rock says.
Rock admitted that he is a fan of the show’s cast, which included Hollywood men Hart, Boris Kodjoe, J.B. Smoove, Duane Martin, Robin Thicke and Nick Cannon acting as dramatized versions of themselves.
“We see each other in passing all the time but it’s rare that you get to work with each other and have fun,” Rock says of the other men.
The semi-scripted show racked up rave reviews during its first season and the parody proved it was a hit once the the network signed it on for a second season.
Hart says Thicke won’t be returning due to conflicts with his schedule, but the Laugh At My Pain comedian believes Rock will be a great addition to the team.
“Chris is a mentor and a friend to me – he’s a guy who’s advised me and basically helped me make steps in the right direction throughout my entire career,” Hart says. “To have him accept an invitation is huge to me but it’s just another level of funny, just another level of unexpected humor.”
