Plot Synopsis

FLEX & SHANICE is a one-hour reality series that follows the lives of a celebrity husband-and-wife duo, actor Flex Alexander and '90s pop singer Shanice, and their extended family all living together under one roof. From the outside looking in, Flex and Shanice are living the dream -- they are beautiful celebrities with a long-standing marriage, gorgeous kids and a lovely home in suburbia. But what this fairytale couple has been hiding from the world is that they have been teetering on the edge of financial ruin for the past five years. So they moved with their two children, 12-year-old Imani and 10-year-old Elijah, into a rental home and brought their extended family into the mix to help cover the cost -- but nine people under one roof, including Shanice's momager Crystal, can add just as much stress as it relieves. Meanwhile, Flex tries to rebuild the stand-up career that he abandoned 18 years ago, and Shanice heads back into the studio to restart her R&B career. OWN first aired FLEX & SHANICE as a one-hour special, FLEX & SHANICE: ALL IN THE FAMILY, on Saturday, May 31, 2014 at 10pm ET/PT, five months before the program premiered as a series. FLEX & SHANICE returned with new episodes on Saturday, July 11, 2015 at 10pm ET/PT on OWN. In the season opener, "Back to Square Onesie," Flex hustles to find a new income stream when his comedy tour falls through. Shanice pitches her adult onesie line idea to an investor. Ruba has a rocky start to his web series. Crystal feels disrespected by Flex. The eight-episode second season of FLEX & SHANICE premiered on Saturday, July 9, 2016 at 9pm ET/PT on OWN: Oprah Winfrey Network. In the season opener, "From 0 to 360," Mali forces Shanice to make a difficult career decision; Flex tries to surprise Elijah with Harlem Globetrotter VIP tickets; Crystal resurrects her R&B group, Crystal Penny.
On Saturday, August 27, 2016 at 9pm ET/PT, OWN: Oprah Winfrey Network premiered the Season 2 finale of FLEX & SHANICE. In the season ender, "Hawaiian Honeymoon... for 8," after waiting 16 years for a honeymoon, Flex and Shanice's Hawaiian holiday quickly becomes a family affair. While Imani and Elijah embrace paradise, Uncle Spirit leads Ruba on a spiritual journey, and no one realizes Mike and Crystal are lost in the jungle.
