WATCH: Vogue‘s First Black Cover Girl Is Getting A TV Show
What’s the perfect reward for having a career full of boundary-shattering achievements? A reality show, of course! And that’s exactly what Beverly Johnson, who in August 1974 was the first black model to appear on the cover of Vogue, is getting at the end of next month.
Starting March 31, Johnson will star in the new show Beverly’s Full House on OWN, the Oprah Winfrey Network. The show features her opening up her home to her daughter Anansa, son-in-law David and granddaughter Ava in what we think will be some kind of examination of the American family dynamic during a recession. Or something. From the show’s description:
Despite sometimes overstepping her boundaries and at times having her intentions misunderstood, she loves her family and is determined to right past wrongs. Along the way, viewers will witness the drama, good times and bad times as Beverly’s traditional/non-traditional family comes together, bound by love, and learns to make it all work.
See, you guys? A life spent in fashion really can prepare you to raise a family. There is hope for us yet! Check out the trailer for the show below and tell us what you think.
