Reality Revisited: “The Cast of Hustle In Brooklyn” Reunites

Reality television stirs emotions, even two years later. What is it about a camera and revealing your truth that gets so complicated. What is it about our interaction with each other that changes when the camera light is on?  While in quarantine, I asked the cast of "Hustle In Brooklyn," some of who I still speak to, to participate in a 'zoom reunion' of sorts, because I was 1. learning how to use zoom and 2. curious to see where they all were and how the experience of reality TV had affected them and their relationship with each other. Needless to say, I got more than what I expected. I chose to wait to post this because, not long after we recorded this, the world was rocked by police brutality and it seemed the wrong time to post anything other than support for the cause.  Still, I did not want the time put into this (some of the cast refused to call in...while others simply forgot) to go unnoticed.
