The Ruckers: Southern Royals Not A Reality Show, But A Docu-Soap On Three Black Sisters!

Posted on April 17, 2013


Just what we need, another reality show. Well, right when you thought you had seen them all here comes a new one. WE tv announced a new show titled The Ruckers: Southern Royals, a docu-soap showcasing three modern African American sisters as they carry on their successful old world southern family name.
The Ruckers: Southern Royals follows three modern African American sisters – Ruby, Ellen and Ione – who are the heirs to one of the oldest and most prominent southern families in the Carolinas. Started by their father, Douglas Rucker, an award-winning dentist, the family dynasty now owns and operates just about every business in Lancaster, South Carolina. At the top of southern high society and while entertaining celebrity friends and attending glamorous soirees, the sisters are also each in a stage of dramatic transition. Ruby is struggling to hide and overcome her financial struggles; Ellen, already divorced, is hesitant to commit to her politician boyfriend; and Ione is balancing raising her three children as she starts to date again after divorcing her college sweetheart. The Ruckers: Southern Royals joins WE tv’s Thursday night schedule in the fall.
