Everybody's got time for a reality show! Sweet Brown, who became a viral sensation with the phrase "Ain't Nobody Got Time For That" talked to TheGrio about her rags to riches life story and how she's parlaying that into a new reality show. She describes The Sweet Brown’s, as “a fish out of water, rags to riches series, that’s a combination of The Jeffersons and The Beverly Hillbillies.” She added, “It’s gonna be hilarious. You’re gonna really crack up.”
Also, she wrapped up an appearance in Tyler Perry's next film, A Madea Christmas and will appear in a new movie alongside Gabrielle Union and Louis Gossett Jr.
And if that weren't enough on her plate, she has a slew on ventures lined up, including a game application, cookbook, and a BBQ sauce called Oh Lord Jesus it’s a FIRE.
And if you were wondering what she thought about Charles Ramsey, she said,
"One similarity that I see, is that we love people. We gon’ help people. What Charles did was great. Because I have daughters and if my kids was missing that long I would want a good Samaritan to rescue my baby. Don’t leave me in the dark. Let me baby come home. So what Charles Ramsey did… I think it was a good thing; thumbs up, Charles.”
