Diann Valentine Snags Reality Show, ‘Love Italian Style’
Relationship expert Diann Valentine has snagged a new reality show on BRAVO. The show is tentatively called, Love Italian Style. There’s a saying: “To live your best life, go where you are most celebrated.” For these African-American women, that place is Italy. In this series, Diann takes five beautiful, eligible bachelorettes who can’t find a good American man, all the way to Italy, aka “Mecca,” where she breaks them down and builds them back up to be open to love. Sounds as sweet as gelato, but it’s not all gondola rides and delicious wine for these single ladies, who live under one roof in a decadent Roman villa, potentially vying for the same men and keeping one side eye on the ultimate prize: a hot Italian husband. Here’s an IG post of Diann reflecting on her time in Rome while filming the series.
#tbt to last week in Rome. I remember thinking how surreal it felt to be working in the country I love so much and how God has used all of my traveling to Italy over the last 20 years, my love for L-O-V-E and my love for women to prepare me for this moment. You see on most days I feel so incredibly misunderstood and that perhaps I’ve outgrown my lane in the US but I’ve always prayed that God would enlarge my territory and never allow geography to limit my ability to live my dreams. In this moment, I’m awaiting take-off on a flight for a week of work in the Middle East. I usually don’t share so many of my intimate thoughts but I’m so incredibly grateful for this beautiful life and never want to take a single moment of it for granted…so I can remind myself of days like this during the tough times! #DVDidIt Suit: @dolcegabbana Shoes: @giuseppezanottidesign Hair/Makeup: @robertleerooks Styled: @jskystyle ? @showrunnerchad #DeeplyMadlyInLove
