Nicki Minaj is reportedly expanding her presence on television. After announcing the decision to join American Idol as a judge, the Harajuku Barbie is supposedly prepping a reality show for the E! network.
According to PerezHilton.com, which recently conducted an interview with the YMCMB rapstress, Minaj began filming the reality show the same afternoon that they spoke with her. Details are relatively scarce on the show, and it is currently unclear when the show will air on the channel.
Minaj is set to make her foray into reality TV as a judge on American Idol alongside Mariah Carey and Keith Urban.
UPDATE: Contrary to prior reports, Nicki Minaj will appear in specials on E! and not a reality show. According to Deadline, a source claims there will be specials and not a whole series. Three specials will air later this fall, and some filming has already begun.
UPDATE #2: After a few inaccurate confirmations, MTV News reports that Nicki Minaj will star in three reality specials for the E! network. The specials will air on the channel in November and feature never-before-seen footage of her personal and professional life.
UPDATE #3: Nicki Minaj has revealed that her three-episode E! reality special begins airing on Nov. 4th at 10:30 p.m. Check her tweet below.
