Cast of ‘Bold & Bougie’ Talk Drama, Success and Ambition | EUR Video Exclusive


*We caught up with the cast of WE TV’s newest reality series from producer Carlos King, “Bold & Bougie,” which premiered February 15.

The unscripted series features Atlanta-based women, including Malaysia Pargo, Tameka Foster, Gocha Hawkins, Princess Banton-Lofters, and Crystal Smith.

Per the official synopsis, “The women of Bold & Bougie have spent their entire lives being cheerleaders for others. Now, it’s their turn to be the center of attention as they support each other and form an unbreakable sisterhood. In each hour-long episode, witness the growing pains that come from love, loss – and hangovers, because they still know how to have a good time,”

The series description continues, “As they celebrate milestones, the women showcase their vibrant personalities and zest for life. However, this sisterhood isn’t without its challenges. From career aspirations to personal relationships, each faces unique challenges and triumphs. Some must confront and mend strained relationships, while others lean on each other during both the highs and lows of their journeys. Above all, these women have one common mission: To survive in this dog-eat-dog world, they’ll need to change their narrative and how they have previously been perceived by those around them.”

Check out the trailer below.

“WE tv prides itself in celebrating untold stories and exploring unchartered territories. Bold & Bougie captures raw and authentic moments as these courageous and unapologetic women break free from societal constraints, embrace their true potential and refuse to be defined by their age or labels. WE are elated to help share their stories,” said Brett Dismuke, Head of Content, WE tv and ALLBLK.
