Last year, Whoopi Goldberg started shopping around a reality series about her daughter Alex Martin. Dishing Diva has learned where that project-of-love has landed — on CENTRIC!
Whoopi and her daughter host made an appearance last night at the BET Upfront to talk about the new series According To Alex, and of course, the outspoken The View host didn’t hold back.
Whoopi revealed that 17 other networks had taken a look but passed on the show because it’s “not black enough,” and since the men were all working “where is the conflict?” She also added that some networks didn’t feel the families portrayed were “rich enough.”
Well, According to Alex is definitely at home on CENTRIC, the first network designed for African-American women. CENTRIC is determined to show real women making extraordinary life choices … sounds a lot like a DivaGal’s life!
It was double success for Whoopi, who got in the family way this past Wednesday when daughter Alex co-hosted on The View.
Dishing Diva thinks this could be the start of a new TV family dynasty!
