Picture "Sex and the City" meets "The Real Housewives of Atlanta" and you'll get the latest edition to VH-1's primetime lineup, "Let's Talk about Pep". Pep is a "Bigless Carrie”, minus the writing. “Kitty”, shares traits of Samantha and Nee-Nee. “Joumana” is a recent divorcee of a professional ball player and plays the Cougar. “Jackie”, most memorable as the broadcaster from the now defunct BET Nightly News,” resembles the “Charlotte” character. She is very vocal about her ticking clock and wish list for Mr. Right, which includes him wanting two kids, the pickett fence, etc.
All four women are looking for the perfect mate, or at least a great date. Each week presents new challenges, shows highlights of new dates, and gives the ladies’ perspective. This show is a must-see for all singles, men and women alike. Online dating, dating men with a criminal past, dating your ex’s best friend, being a Cougar, interracial dating, gold-digging, popular hangouts for men, being stood up … this show has it all.
It’s refreshing to see that even those in the spotlight have the same problems as everyday people. “Let’s Talk about Pep” runs Monday nights on VH-1. If you haven't been watching, no worries. Visit Vh1's website to view full episodes and get caught up.
