personal: Oprah Winfrey Network
If ever you considered getting relationship that is dueling from a super-fine crush and a swagged-out uncle, nowвЂ™s your opportunity. LetвЂ™s make reference to your counsel that is hypothetical as brand new personal show, ItвЂ™s Not You, ItвЂ™s guys. Hosted by singer-cum-actor Tyrese Gibson and hip-hip legend Rev. Run, the show centers on the countless nuances of relationships, through the male viewpoint. The very good news is, this вЂњconversationвЂќ wonвЂ™t yield the sheer and utter awkwardness of discussing intercourse along with your prospective boo, or your uncle. Promise.
вЂњImagine getting a green light for a talk show through the talk show queen [Oprah],вЂќ said Rev. Run during a current interview in the Breakfast Club. He seemed a little awed, and humbled to be hosting a talk show on the queenвЂ™s network. But after seeing Rev. Run and Tyrese Gibson during the Dream hotel in Manhattan week that is together last doing conversation, a talk show seems like a good fit for the duo.
вЂњWe are simply organically close friends,вЂќ claims Gibson, describing the Run-DMC front man to his relationship. Tyrese says they communicate practically a dozen times every day. вЂњWhat we are doing is certainly not an implant. It isn’t orchestrated.вЂќ Gibson is insistent making the idea that their friendship with Run isnвЂ™t a gimmick that is contrived. The two arenвЂ™t most readily useful buds simply for the sake associated with the digital cameras.
The maturity that is revвЂ™s persistence and poise temper TyreseвЂ™s turn-up proclivities. They appear to balance one another out. Expect Rev. Run and talkwithstranger Tyrese to talk about anything from like to lust and everything in between. Nevertheless the hosts see relationships from two very different vantage points.
Take being a born again virgin, as an example.
At one point, 51-year-old Rev. Run ended up being a born again virgin. He married his second wife, Justine Simmons, over two decades ago (June 1994), however the couple didnвЂ™t get busy before saying вЂњi really do.вЂќ Now, the Simmonses have two sons of the ownвЂ”Daniel Simmons III and Russell Simmons IIвЂ”and are thriving.
Tyrese is a bachelor. The 37-year-old is a divorced dad. He has got an 8-year-old daughter, Shayla, who weвЂ™ve seen train and affirm via social networking and YouTube. (Does anybody remember the daddy-and-me вЂњI am someone videos that are? Beyond adorable.) Lately, news broke he purchased his girl that is little an. (Balling! But I digress.)
The dad that is super that he’s got an issue with being solitary, but vociferously opposes being a born once again virgin and/ or abstinence before wedding. GibsonвЂ™s concept: sex is an essential part of relationships, and heвЂ™s not happy to marry PBV (possible bad vagina)вЂ”a view that had some both women and men and men both nodding in agreement.
Run has brought forth many classes, plus the 2014 ny days bestseller, Manology: Secrets of the ManвЂ™s Mind Revealed.
Run may be the elder statesman, and a reverend for goodnessвЂ™ sakes. He’s got been a mentor, your government and religious advisor to Tyrese.
вЂњHow could you naturally know how to be something you had been never ever raised by?вЂќ Gibson said at one point of fatherhood. Without having a father growing up in Watts, California, the singer learned to split a period of that he had been therefore deeply entrenchedвЂ”and Rev. Run, as a household guy, was without doubt a positive example.
вЂњWe are attempting to fulfill a far better type of ourselves,вЂќ said Tyrese, channeling his Oprah that is inner Winfrey. On ItвЂ™s Not You, ItвЂ™s Men, Tyrese and Rev. Run aspire to point feamales in that direction.
ItвЂ™s Not You, ItвЂ™s guys airs on OWN Saturdays at 9/8 C.
