BET Announces New Docu-Series, Set To Feature Beyoncé, Chris Brown, And More


If you’re like us, when the news of the revival of BET’s popular after hours show “Uncut” had arrived, we were thrilled knowing that a portion of our past was coming back. Imagine our surprise though, and yours too we’re sure, when we found out it was all a lie and just another way to plug the revival of another fan favorite show from MTV, “Punk’d.” While we were pretty blowed that “Uncut” wasn’t returning, we found peace this week in knowing that a spin on another nostalgic show from our past is set to premiere in just a matter of days.

If you happened to be around when MTV’s popular hit show “Diary” was on television on VH1’s “Behind the Music,” then this will definitely be news that you’ll appreciate.

Watch: Chris Brown and K. Michelle Get ‘Punk’d’


“Punk’d” is back!!!

BET premiered the new season of the classic celebrity prank show last night, and Chris Brown and K. Michelle were the first two victims!

Breezy—who was previously pranked on MTV’s version of the show—was set up by French Montana on set of a video shoot. As part of the elaborate plot, a young actress pretended to be alone on set without her parents, which alarmed Breezy. Royalty’s father showed that he has a good heart and wouldn’t continue shooting until he knew she was OK. Eventually, French revealed that it was all a set up.

“I got ‘Punk’d’ before, but this actually had me on the edge of my seat. I’m just glad it’s not real,” said the relieved singer.

K. Michelle popped her “Punk’d” cherry thanks to her girlfriends, who set her up with a crazy Uber driver. The driver received an accidental phone call from his girlfriend, who was cheating on him, and soon K and her friends were involved. He tried to pull the car over and that’s when K lost it, jumping into the driver’s seat and taking off.

Watch all the hilarity below!
