Ladies your prayers for a black version of The Bachelor have finally been answered. HipHollywood has learned exclusively that Sherri Shepred is executive producing a competition series where single women will compete for a chance to wed an eligible African American bachelor.
“It’ll be premiering in July after The Braxton’s on WeTV,” said Shepherd with a huge grin. “I’ve been very vocal on The View about the lack of color on The Bachelor. They had a latino but not a black man, so I was like put your money where your mouth is.”
Shepherd who is newly single and recently went through a nasty divorce, told us she found the perfect guy for the show. “He’s fine! He looks good, he’s got money and he’s successful.”
And as for the ladies, Shepherd added, “It’s not ratchet, ain’t nobody slapping each other these are very successful women of color on the show.”
In the meantime you can catch Shepherd in Ride Along 2 in theaters January 15.
