Minstrel Show 101: Sweet Brown Gets A Reality Show

sweet brownA year ago, Sweet Brown did a news interview about a fire. Her one liners “Oh Lord Jesus it’s a fire” and “Ain’t nobody got time for that” are her claim to fame.

I didn’t find her interview funny or newsworthy and I still don’t, to say the least.

Well, Sweet Brown–who walked the RED CARPET at the Grammys– landed a role in Tyler Perry’s A Madea Christmas and she has plans to release a cook book and BBQ sauce titled, Lord Jesus It’s A Fire.

She spoke with The Grio about her upcoming reality show:

“It’s gonna be hilarious. You’re gonna really crack up,” Sweet Brown says of her new show The Sweet Brown’s, which is already in production. She describes the series as “a fish out of water, rags to riches series, that’s a combination of The Jeffersons and The Beverly Hillbillies.”

She seems like a sweet lady.
