Push It. Let’s Talk About Sex. Shoop. Whatta Man. The songs are as
legendary as this rap duo. Twelve million records sold. A first ever
Grammy awarded to a female rap group for Best Rap Performance. Three
MTV Video Music Awards.
Then, in 2002, at the height of their success, Salt ‘N Pepa suddenly called it quits. Rumors swirled that Salt had found God and Pepa wanted to pursue an acting career. Despite the speculation, the girls remained silent. Until now.
On “The Salt ‘N Pepa Show,” VH1 will follow the ladies as they attempt to reunite on and off the stage in this funny, often touching reality series. They soon discover however, that achieving this is easier said than done since most of their past issues are still unresolved. Salt is angry about being unappreciated when they were together and Pepa blames Salt for breaking up the group. Their lifestyles are also polar opposites: Salt has indeed found God and is living a quiet life in Long Island with her husband while Pepa is still the party girl and up for anything. Can they overcome their differences long enough to heal their friendship and perform again?
“The Salt ‘N’ Pepa Show” is executive produced by Banks Tarver and Ken Druckerman for Left/Right Inc. Michael Hirschorn, Shelly Tatro and Danielle Gelfand for VH1. Kari McFarland is supervising producer for VH1.
