Plot Synopsis

Based on the clips of THE REAL HUSBANDS OF HOLLYWOOD that debuted at BET AWARDS '11, this semi-scripted series is the fakest reality show ever, following these men of Hollywood along their surreal lives. This show presents life from the husbands' perspectives, while mimicking situations and skewering characters from THE REAL HOUSEWIVES and other reality series. The husbands are: Kevin Hart, who is recently divorced; Nick Cannon, husband of superstar Mariah Carey; Boris Kodjoe, husband of actress Nicole Ari Parker; Duane Martin, husband of actress Tisha Campbell-Martin; and J. B. Smoove, husband of the songstress Shahidah Omar. Season 1 guest stars included Trey Songz, Nelly, Cedric The Entertainer, Shaquille O'Neal, Ed O'Neill, Russell Simmons, Common, Keri Hilson, Faizon Love, Jay Leno, and more. REAL HUSBANDS returned for its second season on Tuesday, October 15, 2013 at 10pm ET/PT on BET, immediately following the 2013 BET HIP HOP AWARDS. Plus, from Noon-6pm ET/PT earlier that same day, BET presented a six-hour marathon of #BETRealHusbands encore episodes. In the one-hour season opener, Kevin had a new crush and a new house; Nick had a new network; JB had new wheels; and Duane had a new project with Tisha. Season 2 guest stars include Chris Rock, Conan O'Brien, Wanda Sykes, Katie Couric, Keenan Ivory Wayans, Anthony Anderson and more. On Tuesday, October 14, 2014 at 10pm ET/PT, immediately after the 2014 BET HIP HOP AWARDS, BET debuted the Season 3 premiere of REAL HUSBANDS. This season is jammed packed with guest appearances, starting with the first episode featuring George Lopez, Jackie Long and music icon Mariah Carey and special appearances by Chris Rock, Bobby Brown and Johnny Gill later in the season. Meanwhile, the ladies of #RHOH return to duke out their own issues. Is the beef settled between Kevin's ex-boo Nadine Velazquez and his ex-wife, Bridgette (Erica Ash)? Did BFFs Tisha Campbell Martin and Nicole Ari Parker bury the hatchet? Finally, Boris makes a last ditch attempt to prove his singing pipes are all his own. BET premiered the fourth season of REAL HUSBANDS OF HOLLYWOOD on Tuesday, August 18, 2015 at 10pm ET/PT. Starring Kevin Hart, Nick Cannon, Nelly, Duane Martin, Cynthia Kaye McWilliams and Dondre Whitfield, new season shows Kevin continuing to propel his career as a superstar. Along with his growing thirst for fame however, the competition between Kevin and his frenemy, Nick, fiercely increases. In the season opener, "Suck My Trick," Kevin gets tricked into thinking that Nick dies when Kevin fails to donate his kidney to him. To offset the negative reaction, Kevin is guilted into making a 'big donation.' Chris Brown, Nia Long, Craig Robinson, Wayne Brady, Gary Owen, Bobby Shmurda, Faith Evans, Nene Leakes, Terry Crews, EJ Johnson and Paula Abdul are just a few of the guest stars who appear this season. After a three-month break, REAL HUSBANDS OF HOLLYWOOD returned for the rest of its fourth season on Tuesday, January 5, 2016 at 10:30pm ET/PT on BET.
