actress LisaRaye McCoy knows anything, she certainly knows how to keep it really real. And having a reality TV show is a natural fit for the former First Lady of Turks and Caicos. For that reason, TV One decided to bring back her top-rated series, ‘LisaRaye: The Real McCoy’ for a second season.

The cable network and the actress announced that she was filming nine new episodes at their New York Upfront presentation n January.

Now we have a date.

“We’ve come a long way since we first started taping season one of this show,” said McCoy, who is better known just as LisaRaye. “I am very excited to be back with TV One for season two, and to share with viewers the many exciting developments and blessings in my life over the past year.”

The new season, which kicks off on April 9, will feature appearances from some of her celebrity pals including Sheryl Lee Ralph, Tatyana Ali, Bobby Brown, Elise Neal, Nelly, Twista, Bishop T.D. Jakes, DeRay Davis, Chef G.

Garvin and Jacque Reid.

According to TV One, viewers will find the Chicago native “making waves this season wherever she goes whether she’s furthering her career, letting loose her maternal instincts, searching for Mr. Right, or helping out a friend in need.”

Last season was all about bouncing back as an actress and getting over her tumultuous relationship with The Premiere of Turks and Caicos, Michael Misick.

Now, the mother of one is bouncing from Puerto Rico to Los Angeles, from her hometown of The Windy City to Dallas and Las Vegas and finally getting her professional career back on track with a new VH1 scripted series, ‘Single Ladies.’

‘The Player’s Club’ actress said: “I’ve had to fight for what I want and deserve, and I hope in some small way I can help inspire people – women especially – to go after what they want and fight for the life they deserve.”

LisaRaye is also focusing on raising money to help defray a close friend’s cancer bills and starting her very own line of jeans. Her daughter, Kai, has launched a successful modeling career and, of course, LisaRaye is still looking for love.

‘LisaRaye: The Real McCoy’ premieres on TV One on April 7 at 9 pm EST.
