Pepa Shopping Reality Show To VH1, “They’re Calling It ‘Pep In The City’”
Sandy “Pepa” Denton of seminal old school group Salt-N-Pepa may be headed back to the small screen. After documenting her reunion with Cheryl “Salt” Wray on VH1, the Queens rapper is currently shopping a new series to the network chronicling her search for love.
Unlike VH1’s reality competitions with Flavor Flav and Ray J, Pepa’s show is more of a take on the hit HBO series Sex In the City, following her and her friends as they go through the dating process.
“They’re calling it ‘Pep in the City,’ but it’s just a pilot,” Pepa told XXLMag.com, adding that it has already been shot. “It’s about me and girlfriends and [being] single, cause I’ve been single and I’ve been celibate for four years. And my thing is I’m looking to find someone.”
The rap diva has a longstanding relationship with VH1. In 2007, the network aired the first episode of The Salt-N-Pepa Show, which went on to do a second season the following year, and in 2005 Pepa was a part of the fifth season of The Surreal Life. Salt-N-Pepa was also payed tribute to in the second annual VH1 Hip Hop Honors. – Jesse Gissen
