Gospel Music’s Warryn & Erica Campbell Set to Star in Reality Show “WE’RE THE CAMPBELLS” on TV One! But Should They?

New Series Will Follow the Grammy Award-Winning Power Couple as They Raise Their Family in a Faith-Based Household, While Juggling Multiple Thriving Careers...

 

Hello World,

I don’t know if I agree with this but TV One has announced the start of production in Los Angeles for the new original reality show WE’RE THE CAMPBELLS.  The reality show follows gospel music power couple Warryn and Erica Campbell as they balance raising their family, building their own individual empires, growing their flourishing church ministry and maintaining their strong faith. Married since 2001, WE’RE THE CAMPBELLS will allow viewers to follow Warryn and Erica as they manage their hectic daily work schedules while fostering a healthy marriage and raising three children with the help of their core group of family and friends.

At the center of this close-knit and loving musical family is Erica Campbell – in addition to her busy roles as a wife and mother, she is one half of the award-winning Gospel music super duo Mary Mary, an entrepreneur, co-host of the popular nationally-syndicated Reach Media program Get Up! Mornings with Erica Campbell and First Lady of a thriving church ministry.  Her equally ambitious husband, award-winning music veteran Warryn Campbell, has produced music for many of today’s most influential artists, is the founder of record label My Block Inc., and Pastor of the fast-growing church ministry, California Worship Center.

WE’RE THE CAMPBELLS will film between the family home city of Los Angeles and Dallas, where Erica divides her time while taping her daily radio program. Slated to premiere in June 2018, the nine episode docu-series will highlight the obstacles many families face while trying to balance careers, maintain a healthy marriage, and raising their three children Krista, Warryn, and Zaya.

WE’RE THE CAMPBELLS is produced for TV One by Entertainment One (eOne).  Executive Producers are Tara Long, Mark Herwick, Kim McCoy, Warryn Campbell and Erica Campbell; Co- Executive Producer is Narvin Russaw. For TV One, Tia Smith is the Executive in charge and Sr. Director of Original Programming & Production; Donyell Kennedy McCollough is Sr. Director of Talent, and D’Angela Proctor is Head of Original Programming and Production.

Below is a trailer for WE’RE THE CAMPBELLS:

So I think they’re an adorable family, and I will watch, but I think reality shows are toxic for marriages long term. I mean, Erica only has to look at what unfolded on her previous reality show Mary Mary with her sister Tina and her husband Teddy. I wrote about that saga in my post “Why Mary Mary May Need To Get Off Reality TV…My Open Letter to Erica & Tina Campbell.” And later, I interviewed Tina Campbell about the show including her husband’s infidelity in “Mitchell Solarek is NOT Tina Campbell’s Manager & More: My Interview With Mary Mary’s Tina Campbell.” The couple has made the mess their message in their web series “10 Minutes with Teddy & Tina,” but look (and you really could look) at all they went through!

And it’s not like the other Campbells haven’t experienced infidelity too. On that show Black Love on OWN, Warryn Campbell revealed that he cheated on Erica with another woman and got the woman pregnant! See the revelation below:

I had never heard that before but it’s likely we, the viewing public, will learn even more about their marriage AND their children. Like I said, I will watch but I hope this show is only on for a short period not six seasons like Erica & Tina Campbell’s reality show Mary Mary. And remember when the show started, they were a solid duo and now when they perform together it’s a reunion for a special reason

So will you watch Warryn & Erica Campbell’s reality show WE’RE THE CAMPBELLS on TV One?

‘Black Panther’s’ Letitia Wright, T’Challa’s Little Sister, Nearly Gave Up Acting for Christian Faith!

Hello World,

I cannot unpack all that is #BlackPanther the movie at this moment because there were levels and layers to this movie. I saw the movie yesterday, but I think I will have to see it again so that I can take in all that was offered in the movie. I mean it touched on so many areas worthy of dissertations from the divide between Africans and African Americans to the warriors that are black women and how they have saved black people to boys growing up without fathers in the black community…

But when I came across this article, I knew I needed to share it with my tribe. As I joked this morning on social media, all praises to Black Panther but ALL of the honor, glory and praise belongs to the Lion of Judah, JESUS! Apparently, Letitia Wright, who portrayed Shuri, T’Challa’s impish and brilliant little sister, agrees! She nearly gave up acting before landing this role of a lifetime…Apparently, acting had become an idol in her life…I can relate. I have some writer goals that have probably taken up more residence in my heart than what God intended…So I’m working that out…But check out what Londoner Letitia Wright said on “This Morning” about developing a personal relationship with God and how that relationship changed her perspective on acting and everything else… See the quote and video below…

I was going through a lot. A very difficult time in my life. I just needed to take a break from acting because I really idolized it. So I came off from it. And I went on a journey to discover God and my relationship with God. And I became a Christian. It really just gave me so much love and light within myself so much so that I felt secure. I felt like I didn’t need validation from anyone else or from getting a part. My happiness wasn’t dependent on that. It was dependent on my relationship with God.

Let the Church Say Amen…

Just for kicks, here I am at the theater to see Black Panther last night…#WakandaForever…

Hello World,

Happy New Year!!! Throughout the month, I will be posting on New Year themes because I allot a month to converse with God, mediate on Scripture and reflect on my life before I’m ready to declare my God-given New Year’s goals and or resolutions. One of the ways that God communicates with me is through gospel music! And if that is true for you too and or even if you just enjoy gospel music, tune into ABC’s “Good Morning America” tomorrow at 7 am! Grammy Award-winner Tasha Cobbs Leonard will be performing songs from her third album HEART. PASSION. PURSUIT. Check out a snippet below of Tasha Cobb Leonard’s song “The Name of Our God!”
