During the teaser, Shanice admits:

It’s hard being a broke celebrity.

Most of us were introduced to Flex from his hit show “One to One” and Shanice from her Grammy-nominated hit song “I Love Your Smile”. Since then, some of the public has heard very little of them, but apparently, they’re working their way back pursuing their respective careers, while raising a family.

The network press release shares:

Flex and Shanice realized that they needed to take their wedding vow ‘for richer or poorer’ to heart, so with their two adorable kids, 12-year-old Imani and 10-year-old Elijah, in tow, they moved into a rental home and brought their hilarious extended family into the mix to help cover the cost. A total of nine people, including Shanice’s “momager” Crystal, make this truly a full house where anyone’s business becomes everyone’s business.

Check out the teaser.
