Last night, BET premiered their lively new docuseries “Ladies Night,” starring Salt-N-Pepa (SNP), DJ Spinderella (Spin), and Sisters With Voices (SWV). The show follows Salt-N-Pepa, as the legendary hip-hop group embarks on a groundbreaking Las Vegas residency, while simultaneously preparing for a national tour with acclaimed R&B trio SWV. Two iconic groups joining forces seems like a sure thing, but drama is brewing beneath the surface that could derail the tour’s success.
The episode kicked off with an inside look at SNP checking out their new Vegas digs. Appreciating this career milestone, they privately share an intimate moment on the stage, expressing gratitude for their close relationship and longevity in the music business. Miles away in South Africa, SWV brought the house down performing for a packed house of screaming fans. Both groups are excited about their opportunity to work together, but it was not without concerns. With 6 opinions to consider about the look, tone and feel of the tour, things are bound to get juicy!
“Ladies Night” has no short of drama with clashing personalities and past conflicts that come into play. Episode 1 wasted no time getting the tea, when Pepa noted the reason for Spin’s absence from their venue walkthrough was due to it being a “business meeting.” Ouch!
It’s not all quiet on SWV’s end either. Coko’s notorious diva behavior is already a hot topic that causes tension in the group. Last night, we saw her commitment to the tour being called into question as she deals with a divorce, and her protests of Salt-N-Pepa’s attempts to “take the reins” and call shots on the tour, despite Taj and Lelee’s blessing. A preview of later episodes shows she won’t exactly be taking a backseat this season and a blowup may be looming just around the corner.
Can Salt-N-Pepa and Spin strengthen their business ties? Will Coko be able to convince SNP she is ready to work? Can both groups put egos aside, and bring the Ladies Night tour together harmoniously? Tune in next Tuesday at 10pm ET/PT to see these and other storylines unfold.
