TV ONE'S "RICKEY SMILEY FOR REAL" RETURNS FOR A FOURTH SEASON, TUESDAY, JUNE 13 AT 8 P.M. ET

New Super-Teaser Exposes the Relationship Drama Occurring with Various Cast Members

SILVER SPRING, MD - June 6, 2017 -Rickey Smiley For Real returns to TV One with a hilarious fourth season of laughs, drama and teachable moments on Tuesday, June 13 at 8 p.m. ET. This season the show covers the changing dynamics as Rickey Smiley works to balance a family of growing, opinionated young adults while expanding his entertainment empire by directing a sitcom and creating/hosting a game show. Various relationships will be revealed and tested throughout the season.

When Rickey learns that D'essence is working at a hookah club instead of attending college, he quickly intervenes and moves her from Miami to Atlanta. Under his watch and support, her new job will be to find employment and get back in school. However, Rickey is unaware that his decision will only move D'essence closer to her "situationship" with Cornbread, Da Brat's artist. Does this budding couple stand a chance or will father and manager put their unified foot down?

Radio show producer Beyoncé is pregnant and Gary has made it his mission to be her helpmate throughout the pregnancy. While his talk show is being shopped around, Gary volunteers to attend parenting classes and help plan a baby shower for the mom-to-be. However, all this baby talk is starting to impede on Gary's friendship with Juicy, and she is not happy about it.

The family is growing up and beginning to go in different directions, so they dedicate time to put family first and make enjoyable moments together. Craig is quickly maturing. He has a new girlfriend, is preparing for prom and graduation, and lastly, heading to the Navy. Malik is busy at school and doesn't get much time to spend with his siblings, so the family makes time to have fun together. When Aaryn comes to visit from Columbia everyone is excited to see her, but it's the male companion that she wants to introduce to Rickey that catches everyone by surprise! Meanwhile, Brandon and Beonka will decide if they are going to take their relationship to the next level and get a place together. Is marriage next for them?

This season Da Brat has made it her mission to give back to incarcerated women and document her prison experience. She finds joy in speaking with women behind bars to encourage them to make a life change for a better future.

Meanwhile, Rickey is still looking for love. His good friend, Ed Lover, convinces Rickey to work with a professional matchmaker. Unfortunately, everyone wants to have a say in what type of woman will be best for the busy comedian.
