'Chris Rock' '/' BET

BET's hit reality farce "The Real Husbands of Hollywood" is about to get even funnier.


That's because Emmy-winning comedian and actor Chris Rock is joining the cast in Season 2. Rock will replace Robin Thicke, who abruptly left the show last week. Comedic actor Anthony Anderson is also coming aboard. "The Real Husbands of Hollywood," which was co-created by star Kevin Hart, has been a critical and ratings hit for BET, drawing a little over 4 million viewers since its January debut.

"I just watched the show and it just seemed like they were having so much fun. I said, 'I want to have fun,'" Rock, 48, told HipHollywood. "I'm a fan of Kevin and Anthony and J.B. (Smoove) . We see each other in passing but it's rare you get to work with each other and have fun."

Hart, 32, said he could not be happier or more proud that Rock is a part of "The Real Husbands of Hollywood" now. The show also stars Nick Cannon, Boris Kodjoe and Duane Martin. 


"He's a mentor and a friend to me," Hart said of Rock. "To have him accept an invitation is huge."


"The Real Husbands of Hollywood" Season 2 will debut later this year.

Any one that thinks Chris Rock wont make this show even funnier has some serious anger issues.

"I just watched...seemed like they were having so much fun...I want to have fun."  Let me guess, these men all sit around lighting up a big one, heading to the bars to cheat on their women, and we will read hear about it on TMZ or the Enquirer after we find out about it when a new baby momma comes forward suing for child support.

The show is hilarious.  Robin Thicke was surprisingly good, but I can't wait for Chris Rock's appearance.  Rock is one of the most talented comedians on the face of the Earth.  One of my favorite movies is  "Pooty-Tang."  If you haven't seen it yet, you should check it out.  HILARIOUS!!

This was a surprisingly funny show.  Watch it before you crucify it.

Never heard of the show before now, but I like Kevin Hart and a few of the others so I wish them success. Anybody else feel like Robin Thicke was wildly out of place among this group?

Just another reason for NOT watching.
