Last night was the season premiere of Nellyville. It’s an interesting, yet entertaining show that gives Nelly’s fan a different side of him. We are used to seeing Nelly a part of just about anything music related and even on the world’s fakest reality TV show, Real Husbands of Hollywood but to see the real Cornell Haynes side of Nelly was very intriguing.
Nellyville based upon Nelly raising four teenagers/young adults. His two children, Chanelle (Nana) & Cornell (Tre) and his sister’s children, Sydney (Stink) & Shawn (Lil Shawn aka Tab). Nelly has been raising Stink and Lil Shawn as his very own after the passing of their mother. Nana is the true definition of a daddy’s little girl. Its obvious that her and Nelly share a strong bond with each other. She’s currently attending college in another state and is experiencing heartache & pain after the passing of her boyfriend. Tre is the laid back athlete of the family but unfortunately will face an injury that could possibly put his passion on hold. Stink appears to be the soft-spoken one out of everyone that is also an aspiring model. Lil Shawn is truly a character. He’s what most would say is the “class clown” but there’s a sweet, caring side of him. Lil Shawn also wants to be just like his uncle, a successful rapper.
Nelly even gives us a view of what his and his new girlfriend, Shantel relationship consist of after previously being in public relationships. The two live in two different cities, have two different professions but still manage to make time for each other. Shantel is also making efforts to build relationships with all the children, especially Nana.
We look forward to watching Nelly and his family go through trails & tribulations that they all face and handle together as a family on Nellyville, Tuesdays at 10P/9C on BET. We shared our thoughts, share yours.
Here’s the trailer for Nellyville:
