*OWN has announced that its new Evelyn Lozada docu-series “Livin’ Lozada” will premiere on July 11 at 9 p.m., followed by the return of “Flex & Shanice” at 10.
As previously reported, “Livin’ Lozada” follows Evelyn of “Basketball Wives” fame, and her 21-year-old daughter Shaniece. The reality star has moved on from the heartache of her highly publicized divorce from Chad Ochocinco and is engaged to Major League Baseball player Carl Crawford. The couple has a one-year-old son, Leo.
Between learning to be a mom all over again, setting up a new home in Los Angeles for her and her family, working on getting the sequel to her first book published, as well as dealing with issues surrounding her family back East…Evelyn has a lot going on.
Not to be outdone, her daughter Shaniece has a blossoming modeling career and is working on starting her own bikini line, while looking to her mom for advice which she (sometimes) takes.
OWN says, “Each episode is filled with close friends and relatives in the ladies’ lives who help round out a world filled with laughter, support and encouragement as we follow Shaniece carving out the new life before her and Evelyn moving on from her past and embracing the new life she has found.”
“Flex & Shanice” continues to follow the lives of husband and wife duo, actor Flex Alexander (“One on One”), Grammy-nominated singer Shanice (“I Love Your Smile”) and their extended family all living together under one roof.
From the outside looking in, Flex and Shanice are living the dream — they are beautiful celebrities with a long-standing marriage, gorgeous kids and a lovely home in suburbia. But what this fairytale couple has been hiding from the world is that they have been struggling financially for the past five years, so they moved their hilarious extended family in to help make ends meet.
As the couple often says, “We’re not where we want to be, but we’re not where we used to be,” and viewers will see just that in the second season. But nine people under one roof can add just as much stress as it relieves. And while Flex builds on his acting and stand-up careers with the release of his graphic novel, Shanice hustles to convince a Grammy-nominated producer to EP her new album while raising two precocious kids. This family is just trying to hold it together for long enough to capture that one big break that could turn their luck around.
