In 2014, the Oprah Winfrey Network premiered a reality show called Flex & Shanice that followed the lives of former celebrity couple Flex Alexander and Shanice Wilson. The show chronicled the couple's journey as they tried to get their careers back on track while raising their two children and struggling to make ends meet.

Flex and Shanice were both well-known entertainers in the 90s. Flex was a successful actor known for his work on the sitcoms "One on One" and "Girlfriends," while Shanice was a popular singer with hits like "I Love Your Smile" and "Saving Forever for You." However, after spending years in the limelight, they both fell on hard times financially and personally. They had to sell their home and move into a rental property with their children, Imani and Elijah, and Shanice's mother, Crystal.

The show focused on the challenges the couple faced as they attempted to revive their careers. Flex was eager to act again, but found it difficult to get cast in anything substantial. Shanice, on the other hand, was more interested in making a comeback as a singer, but struggled to balance her music career with raising her family. The couple also had their fair share of personal issues, including occasional disagreements and struggles with trust and communication.

One of the most memorable storylines from the show was the couple's decision to rent out their home for events in order to make extra money. While the idea seemed lucrative at first, it quickly became clear that it was going to be more trouble than it was worth. Dealing with difficult clients and fixing damages to their home put a strain on their relationship and their finances.

Flex & Shanice also shed light on the importance of family and the couple's strong commitment to each other. While they faced obstacles along the way, they always found a way to work through them together. The show presented them as a loving and supportive couple who always put their family first.

Throughout the series, viewers were given a glimpse into the couple's creative process and their efforts to make their dreams a reality. Shanice's musical journey was particularly moving, as she went from struggling to find her sound to releasing a successful single and performing on national television. Seeing her emotional reaction to the positive response from fans was a highlight of the show.

Overall, Flex & Shanice was an intimate look into the lives of two celebrities who were trying to find their way back into the spotlight while navigating the challenges of parenthood and finances. It was a heartwarming and inspiring series that kept viewers invested in the couple's journey until the very end.

Flex & Shanice is a series that is currently running and has 3 seasons (26 episodes). The series first aired on November 1, 2014.
