Last night (9-17) some of Atlanta Tastemakers walked the red carpet at the Buckhead Theatre to watch the premiere of Rickey Smiley’s new original comedy series “The Rickey Smiley Show.”

The comedian and syndicated radio host plays himself as he tackles the challenges of single fatherhood, while also balancing his radio career and personal life. Ray-J, who attended the premier last night, co-stars as Smiley’s radio producer Kenny, a character inspired by his real radio show regular, Head Krack. You’ll also see Smiley bring in some of his infamous characters he tends to portray in his stand-up act.

The Rickey Smiley Show debuts tonight (Tuesday 9-18) on TVOne 9/8c.

    I wish Toya would STOP wearing tights every-damn-where, but I like her hairstyle and color. Reginae is cute, and yes Memphists does need to step back off Reginae.

    Who is Rickey’s date? Saw the video and other pics…that’s a beautiful woman. The other ladies looked good too but some people stand out more than others.

      I think they said her name is Vashawn or Vershawn…something like that… She won the contest to go as his date but people are saying that they are really dating now.
