LisaRaye: Debuting 'The Real McCoy' Show in April

Comments (30)


TV One has set a date for actress LisaRaye McCoy's upcoming reality show, 'LisaRaye: The Real McCoy.'

The eight-episode series is set to premiere April 8 at 9 p.m. EST.

As previously reported, the new show will follow the Chicago native as she raises her 19 year-old daughter Kai and provides advice to her incarcerated sister, platinum-selling rapper Da Brat – all while taking care of her ailing mother.

It's been 12 years since the 41 year-old made her feature film debut as Diamond in 'The Players Club.'

A trailer for her docu-drama shows the former 'All of Us' star meeting with acting coaches to work on her career, not to mention making time for some of her big-name friends like Jamie Foxx, Lil' Jon and the Rev. Al Sharpton, with whom she's been romantically linked.

McCoy prides herself on keeping it real is definitely doing just that in her new show.

"I cannot watch the news because it hurts my feelings," she stated. A trailer for the show finds McCoy questioning her daughter Kai about whether she used a condom, bungee jumping with her cousin/assistant Quincy, and on numerous photo shoots with stylist Joe Exclusive.

In another exclusive interview with Jaime Foster Brown, McCoy shared her frustration with her estranged husband Michael Misick, the former Premiere of Turks and Caicos.

"I'm mad because I never ran government in Turks and Caicos," she said. "I get married to become a first lady and that was not a part of my plan and I damn sure didn't want to be involved with anybody that was going to be a part of any type corruption at all at no type of level. I could have stayed right here where I'm from in the States to do that."

"What I put aside meaning my career to come help this small country bring awareness to tourism there, they don't sell coffee and they don't sell sugar, meaning they only rely on tourism to make money there, I did that and I did that well," she continued.

"So for me to be going through what I'm going through just to get my money out of this settlement and being ridiculed the way that I am. It makes me mad that I'm fighting for something that I don't have anything to do with. We agreed that we don't belong together. Let me get back to what I do and do what all you wanna do and do what you've been doing," she charged.

There's sure to be more of the no-holds-barred conversations on 'LisaRaye: The Real McCoy,' when it airs this spring..
