You know what they say: the devil works hard, but Cardi B works harder. After all, there’s nothing in this world she likes more than checks.
The rap superstar is returning to reality TV with a series in partnership with Facebook that is premiering today, December 17th on Facebook Watch.
You heard it here first, folks! Cardi B will be starring in a show called Cardi Tries in which the Grammy winner will try out activities that she’s not well-versed in.
According to the Cardi Tries promo, Belcalis Almánzar will be trying out out ballet, stunt car racing, basketball, making sushi, making wigs, ranching, teaching kindergarten…the list goes on. And of course, the best part about seeing her “try out” everything will be her hilarious reactions. Say what you want about Cardi, but the girl is hilarious.
The premiere episode features Cardi trying out ballet dancing.
Legendary choreographer Debbie Allen asks her if she’s done ballet before, to which she replies “I used to be a stripper.” We then see her doing ballet, her long blue acrylic talons posed in front of her.
To make things more fun, Cardi will be joined on the show by special guests, like fellow Dominicana Michelle Rodriguez, legendary actress and choreographer Debbie Allen and Damian Lillard of the Portland Trailblazers.
Facebook Messenger as a part of the app’s new “Watch Together” feature.
Apparently, the “Watch Together” feature will allow Facebook users to watch the show together with other users in real time. Since COVID-19 has made “Watch Parties” a thing of the past, this new feature could definitely give people that sense of togetherness without actually, you know, being together. Viewers will be able to watch Cardi Tries over video calls on Instagram, Facebook Messenger, and Messenger Rooms.
This isn’t Cardi’s first foray into the reality TV space.
Many of Cardi’s fans were first introduced to her through Love & Hip Hop, where she stole every scene she was in with her infectious laugh and her catchy Cardi-isms (you know the ones).
Cardi also starred alongside Chance the Rapper and T.I. in the Netflix series Rhythm + Flow in which she judged contestants on their rap skills. It’s safe to say that audiences love to watch her do just about anything.
You can catch new episodes of Cardi Tries every Thursday at 12pm EST on Instagram video chat and Facebook messenger.
