Reality shows have come a long way since the Kardashians showed us how interesting it was to glimpse into famous people’s private lives.

Many celebrities nowadays have their own reality shows.

Some have even stopped doing what made them famous (singing, sports, etc.) to focus on this venture.

After all, it keeps them on top of their fans’ minds, isn’t too taxing, and the only major sacrifice they make is the loss of privacy.

That said, some reality T.V. shows work better than others.

And Black women-led reality shows are often bingeable if you can find the right one.

So below are the best Black women-led reality shows you can watch today.

Basketball Wives

Airing on VH1, Basketball Wives shows us the inner lives of our favorite basketballers’ current and former better halves.

They rub shoulders with stars like French Montana, have eccentric parties, and have outrageous fights with each other.

The show is 15 seasons strong and still running, showing that the Basketball Wives are consistently entertaining.

Joseline’s Cabaret

This is among the newer Black women-led reality shows.

It’s led by former Love & Hip Hop: Atlanta star Joseline Hernandez.

Joseline’s Cabaret chronicles her daily life as she tries to launch a cabaret in different locations.

There are three locations so far: Miami, Atlanta, and Las Vegas.

In the first season, Miami, Joseline gives us a close look at the daily lives and struggles of strippers.

In Atlanta, she launches a competition that takes place in a mansion.

And in Las Vegas, Joseline has another competition with both new and returning competitors.

Love & Hip Hop

Love & Hip Hop is among today’s influential reality shows, spanning multiple seasons and covering different locations.

It encompasses the lives of record producers, performers, R&B musicians, rappers, and managers.

The stars who appeared on the show include Soulja Boy, Trina, Trick Daddy, Remy Ma, and Waka Flocka Flame.

The drama is heavy in this one, and accusations of scripting are common.

But whether or not that’s true, we can agree that Love & Hip Hop is among the juiciest Black women-led reality shows you can watch today.

The Real Housewives of Atlanta

With 14 seasons and nearly 300 episodes, The Real Housewives of Atlanta is among the longest-running Black women-led reality shows.

It was also a significant hit: by 2014, it had become the highest-rated T.V. show on Bravo.

And it spawned multiple spinoffs, including:

  • Kandi & The Gang
  • Porsha’s Family Matters
  • Porsha’s Having a Baby
  • Kandi Koated Nights
  • Xscape: Still Kickin’ It
  • Kandi’s Ski Trip

The show currently stars Kenya Moore, Kandi Burruss, Drew Sidora, Sanya Richards-Doss, and more.

The episodes are full of drama, fun, and moments of vulnerability.

They have drama, vulnerabilities, have fun, and are easily binge-able.
