‘Real Husbands of Hollywood’ Is Back — Robin Thicke Teases First Look Of Season 6
After an almost four-and-a-half-year hiatus, BET’s Real Husbands of Hollywood is back, according to an exclusive by The Jasmine Brand.
The comedy series satirically emulates Bravo’s hit franchise, The Real Housewives. The Real Husbands of Hollywood took reality television by storm with its overblown drama, trivial yet intense catfights, and implausible storylines. It lasted for five seasons from early 2013 until late 2016.
The show was assumed to be canceled, but it appears it has been renewed for season 6.
Created and co-produced by Chris Spencer and comedian Kevin Hart, who stars as the protagonist, the show documents the daily life of Hart and his other married celebrity friends, which round up the cast of the show.
The show’s initial cast included Boris Kodjoe, Nelly, Duane Martin, J. B. Smoove, and Nick Cannon, and all the cast members play a fictionalized version of themselves.
Robin Thicke was also on the first season of the series, and according to his Instagram, he will definitely be back for season 6. The premiere date for the show is not yet confirmed, but according to the singer’s Instagram story, productions have definitely begun.
The ‘Blurred Lines’ singer uploaded a video of him on the set of Real Husbands of Hollywood and confirmed that all the initial cast members were coming back for the upcoming season.

In the past season, several noteworthy guest stars, including Trey Songz, Tichina Arnold, Erykah Badu, George Lopez, NeNe Leakes, and Keke Palmer, were featured, and this season might be no different.
Thicke’s Season 1 Departure
Although Thicke is making a comeback for the sixth season, back in 2013, the singer made headlines for departing the show after just the first season.
When Thicke announced he was not returning to Real Husbands of Hollywood for the second season, rumors of an alleged beef between him and Hart circulated. The two constantly bickered on the show, and fans began wondering if Hart’s jokes drove Robin to quit the show.
However, in an interview with Hip Hollywood, Hart assured that the rumors were far from the truth and that they were excellent friends. The comedian clarified Thicke focused on recording a new album instead.
This was re-affirmed by Thicke himself when he appeared on Power 105.1′s The Breakfast Club. The singer admitted he was still good friends with Hart, but he did not have time for the show.
The thing was, I was gonna do the new season, and then this song started taking off. I didn’t have the time to do the new season. I had to get this album. It was fun just to do it like once. Then you repeat storylines and jokes.
The singer also revealed that he was never offended by Hart’s jokes about his now ex-wife, Paula Patton. He explained that they have similar taste in comedy, and when they met, he actually impersonated Hart and they laughed for hours like they were best friends from high school.
