Would You Watch? Kim Burrell Releases ‘Whatever It Takes’ Reality Show Preview

Earlier this year, award-winning vocalist Kim Burrell had a captive audience as America tuned into her numerous television appearances, discussing the life and close friendship she shared with the late Whitney Houston.  Now the celebrated artist hopes to put her own life on display through a reality TV show called, “Whatever It Takes.”

“I’ll do whatever it takes to sustain the momentum of my success as long as I have my dream team,” says Kim Burrell in an extended preview clip, while adorned in a leopard print blazer, red shirt, layered necklaces, and heavy makeup. Her team consists of flamboyant brand manager, Krishnar Lewis, Karen Smith, Kenneth Jackson & the team members of the Manhattan-based PR & Management firm, Lewis Agency.

“They create my trap door to the world’s stage,” explains Burrell.

Though cameras have been reportedly rolling for more than a year, there is no definitive word yet of any network’s interest in distributing the show, which heavily features Krishnar Lewis.

While much is not known about his personal career, Lewis’s diagnosis with stage 4 Colon Cancer, which, according to highlighted scenes, left him with an estimated six months to live, is a focal point.

From what appears to be an official document shown in the extended promo, Lewis was first diagnosed by Thomas Fisher MD on March 22, 2011. It would seem, then, that the executive has lived well past his life expectancy.

Initially, upon receiving the sad health news about her friend, understandably, Burrell said she “felt very lost,” though her team kept his illness a secret for some time.

What isn’t a secret, however, is how Lewis and Burrell's friendship has blossomed.

She started out as a client of Lewis's firm but the two quickly became great friends and business partners, collaborating on several ventures.

Friends and all, Kim Burrell, the Pastor of Love & Liberty Fellowship Church in Houston, makes it known that she’s the boss. “Let’s get something straight,” says Burrell. “I bring in the money. I want what I want when I want it. It is not KrishnarLewisMinistries.com.”

Watch below:

EEW Magazine will keep you posted on the fate of Burrell’s possible reality TV series, as well as that of Gospel recording artist, Marvin Sapp.

As EEW recently reported, Open River Pictures is seeking distribution for Marvin Sapp: Single Dad,” a reality-based program featuring the life of the recently widowed Sapp who is raising two tweens and a teen, pastoring a mega church, and maintaining a busy gospel music career for the first time without his wife of 20 years by his side.

What are your thoughts on Kim Burrell’s “Whatever It Takes” reality show? Would you watch?

Seems very carnal and vain to me.

Krishnar is very... um...extra? #GirlStop

July 31, 2012 | Unregistered CommenterChelle

not really interested in reality shows for Christians. too much of them on display and not enough of GOD

July 31, 2012 | Unregistered CommenterDenise

Did she says I bring in the money and I want what I want? DIVA!!!!

July 31, 2012 | Unregistered CommenterBlessed1

Kim Burrell is too much. I saw her on Sunday Best and thought she was very arrogant and nasty. That turned me off. These singers egos are out of control.

July 31, 2012 | Unregistered CommenterTriva

NO. That is all.

July 31, 2012 | Unregistered CommenterTammie

I follow Kim's ministry and I think she is phenomenal! I would definitely watch this. I hope it gets picked up. BET maybe???

July 31, 2012 | Unregistered CommenterCoCoa

Who is this Krishnar Lewis guy? Is he gay?

July 31, 2012 | Unregistered CommenterVal

Is this Kim or Krishnar's show?? Too much of it is about him in my personal opinion.

July 31, 2012 | Unregistered CommenterDeidra

GO KIM!!! LOVE IT!!!

July 31, 2012 | Unregistered CommenterApril

Is God getting glory?? That's what we should be asking. I don't have a problem with reality TV. I'm not that stuck on it as a Christian. If that's what these gospel artists want to do and be celebrities, that's fine. BUT make sure Christ is at the center of it. Where is the name of Jesus in this promo? Where at all is Kim talking about God and his work in her life? Why is it all about me me me and doing whatever it takes to secure MY success? That's ugly. It's prideful and THAT'S what I don't like. God resists the proud but gives grace to the humble (James 4:6)

July 31, 2012 | Unregistered CommenterTrinity

Kim is FUN-TEE talking about this is not "krishnarlewisministries.com" lol!

July 31, 2012 | Unregistered CommenterDenitra

All this seeking glory and reality TV mess just makes me sick to my stomach quite honestly!

July 31, 2012 | Unregistered CommenterFed Up

Hmmmm....Interesting. I would need to see more. The jury's still out for me on this one.

July 31, 2012 | Unregistered CommenterThat Chick

I don't know what to say or think about another Christian reality show maybe there is a message or something that we can learn.We've experienced Pastor Kim Burell as it relates to Whitney Houston and now Krishner whom I'm not familiar with.There is an expression Large and In Charge.what i'm saying is it's time for Kim Burell to charge of her health and use her title "Whatever It Takes" and try to lose some of the weight she's been carrying and maintain a healthy body.

July 31, 2012 | Unregistered CommenterK.Scott

Kim gettin' them checks! That's what this is about. She's got that Krishnar in her ear and she's sounding extra on the vain and crazy side. Who you have heading up your career matters. I just think they are an odd fit.

July 31, 2012 | Unregistered CommenterLuvly

I'm a reality TV junkie so don't judge me. This is my cup of tea right here. Drama, suspense, and personality clashes. (Grabs popcorn) Yaaaassss!

July 31, 2012 | Unregistered CommenterCarol

"I’ll do whatever it takes to sustain the momentum of my success as long as I have my dream team..." SMH. Where is God at? So many get the big head and begin to think with themselves they can do anything; that mentality needs to go quickly. I have never been a fan of hers, never could get with her....#TisAll

August 1, 2012 | Unregistered CommenterLady

Her voice is amazing, but her attitude sucks...no plans to watch!

August 1, 2012 | Unregistered CommenterTomeka

Oooh no! All this flesh and carnality. I just can't...
