I gave myself a few episodes of VH1 Let’s Talk About Pep, but all I learned was why so many women are by themselves.
It’s pretty pathetic. So, they’re gonna get dating help from a single dating coach at Essence? That’s like the blind leading the deaf, leading the blind would be too easy. This show should be a warning to younger gals on what to do to to AVOID getting to where these ladies are. I am all for looking for love at any age, but you can very well see the “issues” that landed these ladies single in the first place. Shall I run it down? Well, not here. But I will say that they are not role models of what it is to be single and black. How can you have a “Christian” like Jacque Reid considering having an out of wedlock child with a friend? Then there’s Pep, who is more like 20, instead of 40. Who wants to be that age going on first dates with men with S-curls?
I do wish these single ladies the best, and I will be watching. But being on a reality show and advertising the “crazy” is not a prescription for a husband, just more of the same (with a nicer car).
