Wednesday's edition of "E! True Hollywood Story" on E! Entertainment Television will feature Kenya Bell, the wife of Milwaukee Bucks guard Charlie Bell, and other NBA wives.
The episode, called "Basketball Wives: True Hollywood Story," airs at 9 p.m. The show, which has aired for 13 seasons, features "real life" looks at Hollywood celebrities, movies, TV shows and well-known public figures. It's featured NFL and MLB wives in the past.
Film crews shot Bell at Whiskey Bar during a photo shot for Lela boutique (yes, this is my wife's store), the Bradley Center and other venues around town.
Bell, a former Miss Michigan USA, wore a dress made by a Milwaukee designer Shanel Regier for one of the segments. Bell and her husband have two kids who will probably also be seen on the episode. Yet, Bell told me, "I'm not sure what made the show and what didn't, or how my story fits into the show but I'm excited to see it."
"Hopefully my story will encourage others to keep reaching toward your goals even when they seem impossible. My philosophy is that your 30's are the new 20's and it's never too late to fulfill your dreams," added Bell.
A life-long and passionate community leader and Milwaukeean, Jeff Sherman is a co-founder of OnMilwaukee.
He grew up in Wauwatosa and graduated from Marquette University, as a Warrior. He holds an MBA from Cardinal Stritch University, and is the founding president of Young Professionals of Milwaukee (YPM)/Fuel Milwaukee.
Early in his career, Sherman was one of youngest members of the Greater Milwaukee Committee, and currently is involved in numerous civic and community groups - including board positions at The Wisconsin Center District, Wisconsin Club and Marcus Center for the Performing Arts. He's honored to have been named to The Business Journal's "30 under 30" and Milwaukee Magazine's "35 under 35" lists.
He owns a condo in Downtown and lives in greater Milwaukee with his wife Stephanie, his son, Jake, and daughter Pierce. He's a political, music, sports and news junkie and thinks, for what it's worth, that all new movies should be released in theaters, on demand, online and on DVD simultaneously.
He also thinks you should read OnMilwaukee each and every day.
