Sandra 'Pepa' Denton and Three of Her Closest Friends Search for Mr. Right in the Big Apple
New VH1 Original Series "Let's Talk About Pep" Premieres Monday, January 11
SANTA MONICA, Calif., Jan. 5 -- "Let's Talk About Pep" is a real-life comedy following Sandra "Pepa" Denton of Salt-n-Pepa fame as she emerges from an over four-year romantic and sexual sabbatical to search for love again.
After being burned by bad boys one too many times, Pep decided to get out of the game for a while. She thought maybe clearing her head and going celibate would cause "The One" to magically appear. Guess what? It didn't! Now Pep is joining forces with three of her closest girlfriends -- all single and searching, too -- to try the dating scene again. Together the four friends will laugh, cry and dish lots of dirt as they all try to find true love.
VH1's new original series, "Let's Talk About Pep" is set to premiere Monday, January 11th at 10:30PM ET/PT. We'll get to know Pepa's partners in crime: TV personality and journalist Jacque Reid, who's entertaining the notion of trying motherhood alone until Mr. Right comes along; Joumana Kidd, former model and sports journalist, now returning to the dating scene after her highly-publicized divorce from basketball superstar Jason Kidd; and the wild child of the bunch, voiceover artist and radio personality Kali Troy (a.k.a. "Kittie"), on the hunt for a man who's man enough to keep up with her.
While potential suitors range in age and occupation, the ladies are at a similar place in their lives: All have achieved success in their professional ventures but lack that partner to share it with. Of course they each have very different strategies for finding the perfect guy. But "Let's Talk About Pep" isn't just about the dating game -- it's about the ties that bind these girlfriends together. No matter how they fare in sex and romance, they've always got each other.
Watch their stories unfold when "Let's Talk About Pep" premieres Monday, January 11th, 2010 at 10:30 PM ET/PT on VH1.
"Let's Talk About Pep" is executive produced by Banks Tarver, Ken Druckerman and Brian Nashel for Left/Right, as well as Sandra "Pepa" Denton and Cheryl "Salt" Wray. Jeff Olde, Shelly Tatro, Danielle Gelfand and Kari McFarland oversee the series for VH1.
