Details of the reality special surfaced across the Internet in late September.
It seems that while Nicki Minaj will be starring in a number of reality specials, rumors that she will star in a reality show have been greatly exaggerated. E! confirmed that the YMCMB rapper is set to appear in three specials on the network beginning in November. The network adds that the specials will include never-before-seen footage of the rapper in her personal and professional life. They shared more details are forthcoming. It had been originally rumored that in addition to her turn as a judge on “American Idol,” Minaj would also let cameras into her life for a more in-depth look into what it’s like to be Nicki in a long-run series.

Prior to the publicity, Minaj hinted at possibly joining the current reality television culture.
“That I’m going to keep a secret for now,” Nicki said in an interview. “I am still considering — I will say that I find the more people see, is the more they understand, and then it’s the more they like you. When you pull them in your world, they see you as a real person. I’m not running away from it anymore.” (Perez TV)
