Plus, what would it take for Tatyana to reunite with her ‘Fresh Prince Of Bel-Air’ family?

As the only leading lady on Bet’s new hit comedy Second Generation WayansTatyana Ali has to stand her ground against the boys — not that she, or her character Maya, have any problem doing that. “She totally holds her own with these guys, and she runs things,” Tatyana tells HollywoodLife.com of her latest on-screen persona. “I like how quick-witted and sharp-tongued she is. She’ll cut you with a smile if you get in her way.”

In fact, the strength of her character was one of the reasons Tatyana knew she wanted to be a part of the show.

“Sometimes you read parts and you don’t connect to them, and then sometimes you connect right away,” Tatyana explains. “I felt like I knew her, and I knew what I could do »

Thoughts On Bet Premieres Of 'Second Generation Wayans' & 'Real Husbands of Hollywood'...?

16 January 2013 9:37 AM, PST | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

Bet debuted 2 new series last night - the semi-scripted faux series following the lives of Hollywood husbands, Real Husbands of Hollywood, and the new scripted comedy Second Generation Wayans. The first features Kevin Hart recently divorced, Nick Cannon, husband of Mariah Carey, Boris Kodjoe, husband of Nicole Ari Parker, Duane Martin, husband of Tisha Campbell-Martin, J. B. Smoove, husband of the songstress Shahidah Omar and Robin Thicke, husband of Paula Patton. The second stars Damien Dante Wayans, Craig Wayans, George O. Gore II and Tatyana Ali. Did you watch? I wasn't home at the time, so I missed them both. However, I plan to catch up likely today; or before the next episodes air next week. If you did tune in, thoughts on either or both, after one episode? Funny? Charming? Inventive? Dull? Tedious? Will you be returning for more, or are you done?  Give me the goods...

11 January 2013 2:53 PM, PST | ChannelGuideMag | See recent ChannelGuideMag news »

Bet has assembled some bona fide comedy kings – and princes, too — in an all-new, star-studded Tuesday night lineup featuring Kevin Hart’s semi-improv Real Husbands of Hollywood and Second Generation Wayans, a scripted comedy starring (and culled from the lives of) Damien Dante Wayans and Craig Wayans, nephews of the legendary Wayans brothers. Billed as “the fakest reality show on television,” Real Husbands of Hollywood turns the tables on one of reality TV’s most prolific — and over the top — franchises, putting the newly divorced Hart, Nick Cannon (for the sake of the premise of the show, we’ll call him [...] »
