Alright now, stop! Hammertime.
Ringing any bells, people? C’mon now, I can’t be the only one whose purple parachute pants were a wardrobe staple of my childhood.
And please tell me the crickets I hear chirping are outside and have nothing to do with the fact that I just busted myself out.
Yeah, so, about that. A&E is presenting a new reality show. Can you guess the topic?
“It’s Hammertime in this A&E series that features a peek inside the life of Stanley Burrell, aka M.C. Hammer, who’s experienced the exhilaration of selling more than 50 million albums to the despair of bankruptcy. Back on his feet financially, Hammer now spends his days running his music label, performing, juggling speaking engagements and being a family man to his wife of more than 23 years and their six kids, ranging in age from 3 to 21.”
Hm… so what does Hammer (and family) have to bring to the reality show table that we haven’t seen before?
“Hammertime is a reality series that focuses on the Hammer family as they live their not-so-simple lives in Tracy, California. Having a family and re-launching the Hammer empire is not an easy task, but with wisdom, faith and a relentless tenacity to strive through any adversity, this family is stronger than ever.
Hammer and his wife Stephanie have been married for 24 years and together they are raising six children. For the Hammers, every day is a challenge. While spending the last seventeen years readjusting to his middle class lifestyle, Hammer never lost his thirst and desire to regain superstar status and is now poised to bring his family along with him for the ride.”
I don’t know if it’s worth check out, but I might still tune in, just for nostalgic purposes. But then again, maybe not.
