Jamie Foxx & Bentley Fonzworth's New Reality Show

"Better be a gentleman or you'll turn me off..huh!" Remember that lyric from Janet's musical gem, "Nasty Boys"? Well now, over twenty years later, being or appearing like a gentleman isn't necessarily the rule unless you're standing before a judge. Being a "G" a.k.a "gangster"--either real or imagined, a "hood", "street", or "thug" has been the new "swagger" since the mid 90s. So what exactly is a gentleman suppose to look like in 2008?

Well, Jamie Foxx and Fonzsworth Bentley are helping a select group of young men find out in their new MTV reality series from "G's to Gents". In the show guys are shown there are more fashion choices beyond sagging jeans, Timberland boots, and white tee-s and tank tops. They'll also get lessons in etiquette, speech, and manners. Ooh, this should be interesting!

In a recent interview with LA Times.com, Executive Producer, Foxx, said this:
“I think it’s going to help a lot of people who are really wanting to change their life. It makes you feel good. We’re trying to make a show, trying to make money, but the stories of these guys and to see them on the other end, it’s a beautiful thing.”




Tune in Tuesdays at 10 pm ET/PT on MTV. Here's a clip:
