    The outfit might have been better suited to her voluptuous figure, but she is doing such a great job of losing weight.

      I’m trying to join the hype but I just don’t get it. She’s not the only actress, neither is she the only mother of four, nor the only woman with a career and a home. What’s all the excitement about then? Don’t tell me its her looks cos u can clearly tell that she’s basic without the makeup and spanx. I saw pictures of this launch on another blog and there was not one top shot person in attendance, just the regular folks that attend every red carpet event in Nigeria. Certainly not what is expected from a person on such “high pedestal” . One would expect to see a more polished and sophisticated crowd with big names and what not. I’m beginning to think its her PR folks that storm these blogs and comment in multiple names to give off a false impression of a strong buzz around her. Oh well.. I don talk my own.

      Your comment is rather very unrealistic, so bcos she’s an A-list actress all A-list actors should hv been there? Haven’t u heard of what we call cliques? I guess u didn’t notice that the launch was organised by African magic and the hosts of various african magic shows were there.. U wanted to see genevieve or rita dominic before u confirm that it was a grt launch… Some people shouldn’t really comment when their comment is obviously senseless..

      December 7, 2012 at 12:02 pm

      Don’t join the hype Biko nu. Carry your badbelle and leave us her fans, her so called pr people and I’m sure you’ll say her entire family to keep hyping oh. Haba! Why are some of you so plain? You haven’t seen the official pictures, you weren’t there , your assessment is based on a blog somewhere that probably only you have seen?then you go on to attack every good thing she stands for and the WHOLE WORLD admires! She’s not the only this or only that!…you are obviously a jealous bitter and hurting person somewhere hoping all your above rants will de mystify Omotola! No vex you hear? She is favoured and represents the Best! That is good enough… You on the other hand, sad and bitter… Goodluck to you!

      December 6, 2012 at 8:06 pm

      Lol. I thought reality shows was for hollywood wannabes with no talents. Never heard of Angelina Jolie or Julia Roberts having a reality show. Why on earth does someone like Omotola who is super talented need a reality show. Anywho to each his own.

    • adeleke

      December 6, 2012 at 9:40 pm

      who will be interested in watching a Nollywood wannabe who pulls no crowd? omotola has got this one on point cos many are interested to see how the talented actress joggles family with career.

    • Uche

      December 7, 2012 at 7:54 pm

      It depends. We can’t always compare ourselves with the western world. What holds true for them is not always the same for us.

She is a philanthropist, an established actress over 15 years in the industry 4 fabolous children a dashing husband who happens to be a pilot and a bank account that is bursting at the seams loved by Africans in Africa and the diaspora go to the caribbean she is a household name Omosexy more grease to your elbow! Takes time to reply to her twitter fans…Nothing but success and even more success to you! God bless you

    • WHYNOT?

      December 7, 2012 at 1:40 pm

      Omotola not my Favourite actress but you hae to give it to her! Why not a reality show?? why flipping not? we all come on these blogs commenting and looking to read about the Celebs of Nigeria and worldwide. So why not a reality show it does give us an insight to her life. You never know for all you gist, Gossip mongers and Bad Belle people at least it will give you more fuel for your fire. Omotola is one of the top Ranking Nollywood actress and she does a lot for good causes. She is well know around Africa and a household name in the caribbean where some islands have a channel dedicated to Nollywood so i really do not see anything wrong with her having a reality show. Good luck to her jare and Bleeh to all you haters. go and do what you do best and hate! Bye Bye ooo

    I dont like this dress at all. Very weird looking and too much is going on.

    • damien

      December 6, 2012 at 9:50 pm

    she’s is fabulously beautiful in this dress, and what a handsome hubby she has, they both look great together, nice combination i must say. A great job with the reality show, only brave heart like her can attempt such, that’s one quality that has taken her to the top.

  22. sunday

    December 6, 2012 at 9:35 pm

    without doubt this is far above the rest, she has carved a niche for herself in her 17 years in this game, she’s such a great woman. love that dress.

      December 7, 2012 at 5:19 pm

      [email protected] BiBi! ……..Why do we under value our own Talent in Nigeria why? whether we like it or not Omotala is a national treasure she is the typical Nigerian girl next door who has carved a good life for her self and Made it in showbiz as a Professional actress and she is a great Humanitarian Volunteering and helping children and women around the world. Why can we not give this woman her due Respect for Goodness sake. I think her reality TV show is well desereved and being a Nigerian National Treasure and the typical girl next door i think her fans and more will love an insight to her life. This is totally deserved and just following the Televison trend which is reality shows. Every one who is anyone has one these days so Why is Omosexy any different! YES!! she is a celebrity and she can have one too! I am sooo sick and tired with the HATE that seeps out of you faceless Trolls! Get a life because Omotola cleary has one and you are talking about it and guess what you can now watch it so there!!!!!! Go Omotola more grease to your elbow!

    • dont mention

      December 7, 2012 at 3:24 am

Omotola omotola omotola I hope u know what you are doing. Do not open your home to the devil. When u have something good going for you you protect n guard it. Good luck sha.

    • dami

      December 7, 2012 at 9:36 am

      are you from another planet? if you say omotola has not hit the sot, then i wonder what you really mean, she’s being receiving many awards both locally and internationally, has fans all across the world, UN and Amnesty International Ambassador, the first Nigerian thespian to grace the prestigious Grammy award and lots more.I say to you, welcome to the world.

  37. Ginger

    December 7, 2012 at 8:37 am

    Why won’t people just be truthful? Abeg what episode was d bomb? Was it the same show I watched last night? That thing was literary painful to watch. Nothing real about it.
    She’s not even as banging as the pics make her seem with fat dripping from everywhere. We know she has 4 kids but so does Victoria Beckham. No doubt she’s a pretty woman and will look alright with the right clothes but no, she has to wear tank top. I’m sorry but Omotola is totally classless.

  38. missy

    December 7, 2012 at 8:55 am

    wow! surprisingly, im looking forward to watching this. Please people stop hating, u’ll gladly watch kimora and Kardashians but u’ll not even give urs a chance. and it does look interesting if u’ll just rest ur negativity.

    Watched the re- run last night as I couldn’t watch the earlier one since I was still in traffic! Everyone is my house was shouting! Omotola looked really cool. Her outfits are so glam! For a first ? Bravo!!! Saw re – runs of the kardashians recently as in their earlier episodes and it was terrible and boring with bad quality but they improved. Omotola’s show is starting wayyyyyy better than theirs I’m so impressed. Keep focused girl…I believe in you! Cheers! Greetings from my mum too.

      So go look for your gene child pictures and comment and leave omoT’s thread! Gene private my privates! She’s running on cheap instagram posting pictures on public boats, on road trips to Vegas that all high school children make and her childhood pictures just to gain attention and you want to blab about someone making MONEY with hers? My friend waka! One is wise, one is dumb…and it’s evident in their quality of lives whose who!

    • Shhh

      December 7, 2012 at 4:25 pm

      Why would you call her dumb? Have u been hiding under a rock or wat? Did you not hear of the multi million naira endorsements she got this year alone? So much money, ur omotola is going to work hard for many years to catch up and that’s why she sprang into action and in our faces. In case u didn’t know,Genny is taking a break this year and dats why omotola is getting all this shine. When Genny is ready, omotola will vacate d spotlight.

      I see people have dealt with you properly so I’ll go easy. I think the days of comparing Omotola with then upcoming Genevieve has passed. Yes I will say my mind. I think all this ompatisms is to keep forcing her into omotola’s space . She’s good in her own right ,am her fan as well, but IMO not in Omotola’s league. She is in rita domnic etc league and it’s not bad either. Stop it. Just stop it . Omotola is in a league all by herself!
