Vivica A. Fox says no gays are allowed at her new male stripper Las Vegas revue

In case you haven’t been paying attention, Vivica A. Fox is on a quest to reclaim her ’90s B-list celebrity status.

Her latest attempt comes by way of her new reality show, Black Magic, on Lifetime. The show follows Fox around as she prepares to launch a new business in Las Vegas. The concept is an exotic, all-male revue featuring hot dancers. It’s supposed to be like Magic Mike with a dose of melanin, providing ladies with “the ultimate girls night out.”

Of course, this is not Ms. Fox’s first foray into the world of reality television. In 2008, she hosted VH1’s short-lived Glam God with Vivica A. Fox, where she judged wannabe celebrity stylists. In 2009, she hosted TVLand’s The Cougar, where she helped pair women of a certain age with 20-something men. And in 2012, she hosted the Lifetime show Prank My Mom, a secret camera show where kids punk their moms. She also appeared on The Celebrity Apprentice 7 back in 2014, and served as the celebrity spokesperson for the newly revamped Psychic Friends Network.

Given the success of Magic Mike, especially among gay men, we’d say that, unlike her previous efforts, Vivica may be onto something with this new show. There’s just one teeny tiny problem: She doesn’t want any gay guys there.

In a recent interview with Charlamagne tha God and DJ Envy on the morning radio show, The Breakfast Club, she was asked if her show was “for gay men, too.”

“Aw, hell no,” Vivica was quick to reply. “Back all that up. No! NO!”

When asked why her dancers wouldn’t perform for gay men, Vivica replied, “Because there’s no need to. They dance for women. It’s called the ultimate girls night out for a reason.”

Well, OK then! Message received loud and clear.

This isn’t the first time Vivica has made homophobic remarks in public either. In 2015, she insinuated her ex, rapper 50 Cent, was gay because he enjoyed rim jobs, and said he looked like a gay “booty snatcher” in a photoshoot he did with Soulja Boy for Vibe magazine.

Naturally, people didn’t respond well to the comments. But apparently, Vivica doesn’t give a damn. After Queerty published the story of her homophobic remarks, Fox responded … by doubling down. She tweeted:

Then she said “folks” (we can only assume she means “gay folks”) were blowing things out of proportion:

She followed that a short while later by saying:

When someone specifically sent her the Queerty article and asked for clarification on her comments, she replied:

In other words: Queerty’s initial interpretation of her remarks was correct. She doesn’t want gay people there; however, she welcomes them to still tune into her TV show. Just don’t come to the actual live show in Vegas.

    Abegi I saw the video and she didn’t say anything some gay men haven’t said before. It’s a girls night out. Men in the audience not invited simple. Just like some gay men HATE it when straight females take over their clubs.

    It’s like females tagging along to a guys only outing. Mschew. Biko just because we are gay don’t mean we have to get free pass to every female event. We are gays not girls. #UltimateGurlsNiteOut

    I don’t think she said anything wrong.

    It is not every statement that is homophobic.

    She said it was just for girls, when did gay guys become girls?

    Mehn, people just look for issues where there is none.

    You hear say na “the ultimate girls night out” and you as a gay man want to attend, biko I think there is something wrong with someone and it is definitely not Vivica A.Fox.

    *RME* Stop being so feisty “folks”…I’m sure if the tables were turned and it was some mid 60’s B-list now openly gay celebrity who said the same, no one would care. Its Vivica, she’s ghetto, that’s how she talks, doesn’t mean she’s homophobic.

    Why do we always think everything and everyone is coming at us? (well, I get why though) but Vivica meant no harm. No gay folks allowed cos gay men are men and not women.
    I think it would have been homophobic had she said No Lesbians allowed or something.

    Let’s chill jor. Just have well-lubed sex. No one is after you all the time.

    Vivica was just being the mouthy bitch she’s always been.

    Still, the show is a ladies’ only show. Simply put, it’s no men allowed save the strippers. It’s not a thing against gay people. It’s just a specification on who the audience is meant to be

    Oh please, straight girls and gay men like the same thing, why the exclusivity. Sexy half naked men? yes please one for me and one for my gay friend.

    Everyone kinda forgets that the said strippers have preference too, not every man is comfortable grinding on a fellow man. Vivica only said what she said cos she is a woman and its a woman’s show.
