    Good for her....with all of the negativity that has come at her online in recent weeks, she needs an outlet to show who she is in her own light.

    Sounds like a Gospel Version of The Braxtons Sisters....( and yea i know they are SORT of Gospel too lol )

    Not a good idea. I get that she is doing this bc reality shows helped sell Jessica Simpson, Ashley Simpson,Day 26, Danity Kane, Fatty Koo, and Keyshia Cole's cds....but. Michelle just announced she had been battling depression for years and just finally conquered it. Cameras in your face are going to ADD stress. If she wants interest in herself/career do alot of promo on radio and tv shows, to blog interviews. Reality show is a bad idea. Good luck Michelle.

    Her depression was from when she was a teenager, silly. She's doing this cause she needs easy income.
