K. Michelle and Nicole Richie Getting New Reality TV Shows on VH1
On Wednesday, VH1 reality TV star and Memphis singer, K. Michelle, finally announced the title of her upcoming new reality TV show. The self-proclaimed R&B diva says her show, which is set to debut on VH1 on November 3, 2014 will be titled, “My Life.”
K. Michelle was first introduced to the reality TV world on the VH1 show Love & Hip Hop Atlanta (LHHATL). After the second season, she announced that she’d be leaving the show, but not the network. Instead, she chose to pursue her music career in New York. There, she ended up becoming a cast member on a show from the same franchise, VH1’s Love & Hip Hop New York (LHHNY).

K. Michelle’s New Reality TV Show, “My Life”, Digs Even Deeper Than LHH Franchises
The network must truly love the feisty singer, as it saw fit to give K. Michelle her own new reality TV show. My Life will be a real life account of her life after the Love & Hip Hop franchise. Viewers will also get the opportunity to follow her music career, and watch her interact with friends, including R&B singer, Elle Varner, as well as her own family.
VH1 announced the news of the reality TV star’s upcoming show back in March. Back then, it was being called “Untitled K. Michelle Project”, as well as “No New Friends.” The press release stated:
“…she learns to balance life, relationships, and bona fide superstardom with the help of a dynamic group of friends.
Notorious for her red hair, razor sharp wit and fiery tongue, K.Michelle navigates New York City and her life with a renewed dedication to her son, her friends, and her career.”

Nicole Richie Returns with New Reality TV Show
Lionel Richie’s adopted daughter, Nicole Richie, will also be staring in a new reality TV show on VH1. Her new show, Candidly Nicole, makes its debut on Thursday, July 17th. Eight different episodes of the 30-minute series have been filmed. The show is based on her web series which airs on AOL online under the same name. On the new reality TV show, her hairstyles can be described as colorful. But, are these creative dye jobs, or colored hair extensions?
Nicole’s claim to fame began with her starring role on The Simple Life with her childhood BFF (minus the last F), Paris Hilton. Her new reality TV show will be all her own, as she’s not only the creator, but the executive producer, as well. She’s very pleased to be able to call the shots this time. This was something she never got to do during The Simple Life’s 5-year run, or as a Fashion Star mentor, where hair extensions were the least of her worries. In a statement, Nicole said:
“This is the most in control and empowered I have ever felt in my entire career.
Doing a web series for me, was the best way to do this show. Doing it on the web was a very safe way to see if people are even interested. It turned out that people did (want to watch).”
Taking on New Ventures: House of Harlow 1960 & Candidly Nicole
Nicole Richie currently runs her own fashion line called “House of Harlow 1960.” The 32-year old’s new reality TV project includes both her 15-year sister, Sophia Richie, and her superstar, singer father, Lionel Richie. Nicole says that her dad joined the show because being celebrity is in his soul. He simply “cannot stay away from the camera.” Richie’s husband, Joel Madden, a singer with the group “Good Charlotte”, and their son and daughter won’t be appearing on the her new reality TV show.
Just like with her role in The Simple Life, Ritchie will also be the butt of jokes in Candidly Nicole. She says that she’s very comfortable in this space, noting that it’s a “very fun type of show.”
