Teyana & Iman: Why I’m excited for the next iteration of black reality television

Teyana & Iman is premiering on television tonight and I am extremely excited. I don’t really watch realty, in my youth I was a huge fan of The Housewives of Atlanta, Braxton Family Values, Keeping up with the Kardashians and everything that spawned from Flavor of Love. Flavor of Love was EVERYTHING, but then reality tv took a hard nose dive for me.


Well reality television is over scripted and over dramatic. With stresses and drama of my own (school, work, love and family) I couldn’t be bothered with watching the tomfoolery of others on the screen. I could not handle the emotional stress.

However, when I saw the first preview for the Teyana & Iman show I was intrigued. Personally, ever since this couple popped on the scene I’ve been intrigued by them and their relationship.

What makes them intriguing?

  • They seem like a great combination of extra and low key. Teyana is so over the top and Iman seems chill but extra. I feel like they are the rich equivalent of my spouse and I. I love partnerships that exhibit balance.
  • They are both young, black and successful.
  • They are not all in the new like most other couples. What you hear, if you hear anything, is typically positive. You have to love positive couples.
  • They were/are comfortable doing their life, their way and on their timeline.

Also, baby Junie is one of the most adorable the babies out right now. I mean come on, check her out. She has more style than a little. 

They honestly seem to be a wonderful template and positive representation of young black love. And the world needs more of that. They aren’t perfect, they have their issues, but they bounce back stronger and that’s really what love is about.

Anyway, the Teyana & Iman show premiers tonight on VH1 at 9pm/8c. I’ll be tuning in to check out the love.


Will you be checking out the Teyana & Iman show tonight?

Until next time,
