Say what you want about Blac Chyna – and many of you have said plenty about the former stripper-turned-reality star – the woman has a knack of keeping herself in the news, and therefore relevant in pop culture. Whether it’s beefing with the Kardashian sisters or having a reality show and relationship with their brother, Robert Kardashian Jr., Chyna manages to keep herself on the entertainment radar.
Well, the woman born Angela Renée White is doing it again. It looks like Chyna, 29, will be involved in another reality television show, which is good for her pockets since the show she had with Rob Kardashian went off the air.
“The production team behind the show is trying to get Chyna to do ‘Celebrity Big Brother,’” an insider told US Weekly.
Julie Chen is the host of “Big Brother,” and announced in September that the first season of the celebrity edition of the show will premiere Winter 2018.
The format is going to be just like the original version and include Head of Household and Power of Veto competitions, as well as live evictions. It is yet unknown if the house guests or the public will vote on the CBS reality game show each week.
The caveat for Chyna? CBS is tightening its financial belt. Since the celebrity edition will have a shorter run than the original show’s schedule – which often ran more than 90 days – Chen has already been forced to take a salary cut from CBS chief Leslie Moonves, who just happens to be her husband.
“If you know one thing about my husband, it has to make economic sense,” the TV host, 47, told The Hollywood Reporter in September. “He said, ‘You tell your attorney this is not a game we’re playing. This is the only way it will make sense financially. You shouldn’t be expected to be paid as if it’s a full series.’” Sounds like Julie Chen could learn some thangs from Chyna.
CBS will soon announce the lineup and run date for “Celebrity Big Brother,” which reportedly has experienced great success in the United Kingdom since 2001.
Chyna, as you can see from the selfie she just posted on Instagram, is ready to shine once again.
