*In addition to the Oct. 21 deluxe release of her album, “Rated Love,” KeKe Wyatt, alongside her husband-manager Michael Ford, are currently starring in the latest season of WE TV’s “Marriage Boot Camp: Reality Stars.”
She was also among the greats who attended the 2016 Soul Train Award ceremony over the weekend, and while on the red carpet, Wyatt chatted with the Music Times about her upcoming reality show in development; the inspiration behind her new single “Jodeci” and being vulnerable on “Marriage Boot Camp.”
“Jodeci is G – Money. Jodeci is where it’s at,” stated the R&B Diva. “Jodeci is probably why I got all the kids I got…”
Wyatt has a total of eight kids, and they will appear with her and her husband in their very own reality show called “Crazy for Keke.”
Similar to TV One’s “R&B Divas: Atlanta,” Wyatt says viewers can simply expect to see “crazy KeKe” on the new series
“I got all them 8 babies, and my crazy husband… we crazy together,” she explained. “I want people to see me and my family – how we are, how we live and what’s up.”

Wyatt wants to show her fans another side of her through this show. “We’re just like everybody else I just happen to sing for a living and do TV,” she said.
KeKe and her husband joined other married couples on “Marriage Boot Camp,” who are all seeking professional help to strengthen their marriage and work out some of the drama that continue to cause problems.
For Wyatt, that drama is primarily trust issues and the lingering emotional pain from her past relationship. She confessed that the televised therapy sessions make her feel quite uncomfortable.
“It’s very scary for me ’cause I’m not used to showing people the broken side of me,” explained the 34-year-old. “They just see me upset all the time with people who treat me a certain way but not where it comes from. Now people are actually able to see where it comes from and where it stems from. I hate that but I’m human.”
However, Wyatt understands that sharing parts of her life and hardships on television could be therapeutic and encouraging for someone “that may go through something” similar in the future.
“I’m here to let my light shine for Jesus Christ,” Wyatt explained “…I just feel blessed and honored that God would even allow me to go through the things I went through so that I can help someone else.”
