Reality star EJ Johnson serves up inspiration and talks about new TV show

Luther Vandross was outed as gay after his death.

Reality star EJ Johnson has been turning heads with his signature style and unstoppable confidence.  As the son of famous NBA baller Magic Johnson, EJ (Earvin Johnson III) has carved out his own niche in fashion and television.  After appearing in “Rich Kids of Beverly Hills,” EJ became a quick favorite and is starring in his own new spinoff show called “EJNYC.”

Beyond the flashing lights and galavanting through the city, EJ plans to open up about his own personal transformation (he’s lost 180lbs since having surgery) and relationships.  The show also stars his sister, Elisa Johnson, who is a fashion student at FIT.

EJ dropped by theGrio in New York City for a live chat about “EJNYC,” his passion for fashion, and what it’s taken to be boldly and unapologetically EJ (a.k.a #TeamThis).
