Lifetime is taking its chances with a new unscripted series, Girlfriend Intervention.
Obviously geared towards a more ‘urban’ audience, this makeover series stars “four wise, poised and stylish African American women, who, in each episode, help a white sister seeking a complete makeover to restore her confidence and inner glow.”
We’re not totally sure what a ‘white sister’ is … but we’ll go with it.
The rest of the show’s synopsis reads:
Making over their wardrobes, beauty routines, homes and minds, they teach these women how to embrace and celebrate their lives, speak their mind, lighten up and love themselves again. Our four experts carry themselves with a great deal of pride, style and, most importantly, self-confidence. Where does it come from and how can it be obtained? Who better to teach a woman how to get that sparkle in her eye and spring back in her step? Each week, Girlfriend Intervention follows a woman whose personal space and self-esteem are in desperate need of a major makeover and a life-giving dose of diva inspiration.
Just to be clear — four black women will be helping one white woman fix her life every week. This sounds like a stereotypical mess just waiting to happen!
The show will be hosted by interior designer Nikki Chu, life coach Tanisha Thomas, fashion maven Tiffiny Dixon and hair and beauty expert Tracy Balan — four women who aren’t afraid to “break it down and tell it like it is.”
Exact air dates aren’t available as of yet The show premieres August 27th, but will you be watching?
