Lifetime’s new docu-series BAPs pulls back the curtain on an exclusive, privileged and affluent group of African-American friends from St. Louis who are self-proclaimed “BAPs”— Black American Princesses and Princes. BAPs follows these lifelong friends who are educated, sophisticated and believe being a BAP in today’s world is a birthright. The show premieres on Wednesday, July 23 at 10 p.m. ET/PT.
Each hour-long episode of BAPs follows a circle of friends that is always dressed to the nines, with egos in tow and isn’t afraid to share opinions about men and each another.
There is no shortage of conflict, humor and heart that comes along with being a part of this tight-knit clique,which includes, Anisha, Kristen, Gina, Jason, Riccarda and Brandon.
Together, this group, whose dynamic can change from best friends to frenemies at the drop of a hat, attends St. Louis’ elite fashion shows, the symphony and charity events… but no occasion is conflict-free. Competing to be the most successful and most beautiful person in their circle is sure to bind and divide them, especially when Anisha’s boyfriend, Kendrick,and his niece, Rai-Rai are the anti-BAPs.
This Wednesday, the BAPs host a welcome home party for one of their own, but things go south when two long-time “frenemies” Kristen and Anisha battle it out over Kristen calling Anisha a bad mother. Before the night is through, there will be insults, jabs, and even spit, because BAPs may be like a family, but even families fight..
