Salt 'N Pepa Season Up VH1 With New Reality Show
'The Salt 'N Pepa Show' Premieres Monday, October 15
LOS ANGELES, July 13 -- "Push It." "Let's Talk About Sex."
"Shoop." "Whatta Man." The songs are as legendary as this rap duo. Twelve
million records sold. A first ever Grammy awarded to a female rap group for
Best Rap Performance. Three MTV Video Music Awards. Then, in 2002, at the
height of their success, Salt 'N Pepa suddenly called it quits. Rumors
swirled that Salt had found God and Pepa wanted to pursue an acting career.
Despite the speculation, the girls remained silent. Until now.
Premiering Monday, October 15, "The Salt 'N Pepa Show," will follow the
ladies as they attempt to reunite on and off the stage in this funny, often
touching reality series. They soon discover however, that achieving this is
easier said than done since most of their past issues are still unresolved.
Salt is angry about being unappreciated when they were together and Pepa
blames Salt for breaking up the group. Their lifestyles are also polar
opposites: Salt has indeed found God and is living a quiet life in Long
Island with her husband while Pepa is still the party girl and desperately
wants to re-capture the glamour of Salt 'N Pepa's glory days. Can they
overcome their differences long enough to heal their friendship and perform
