Rapper Nelly Planning Much-Needed "Male Version of The View"

Posted By on Mon, Feb 1, 2010 at 5:10 PM

According to a recent interview with Black Voices Buzz the once awesome, now loathsome rapper Nelly revealed—without bursting into laughter (or tears) or using scare-quotes—that he and his super-cleverly named supergroup Ocean's 7 (which also includes Jermaine Dupri, Usher and Trey Songz) are working on a "male version of The View."

As if this analogy weren't embarrassing enough, Nelly went on to further explain the concept for the as yet unnamed talk show ("Usher and Friends"? "Usher and Business Associates"? "Usher and Hangers-On"? "The Usher Show"!) by making reference to the very embarrassing Gerard Butler-Katherine Heigl rom-com The Ugly Truth. "You ever seen that movie called The Ugly Truth?" Nelly asked his BVB interviewer, "You know how the guy had his show? Well we're working on that." So, basically a daytime version of The Man Show; Nelly is going to re-launch The Man Show—not to be confused with the infinitely superior Mr. Show. (HipHopWired)
