Reality TV mogul Carlos King to launch live podcast tour

Real Housewives producer to conduct live tapings across the US

Reality TV producer Carlos King is set to embark on his first live tour next year for his podcast Reality with the King, with dates across the US which will be filmed for future episodes. 

The tour will start on 21 January in Hunstville, Alabama, with Love & Marriage: Huntsville star Melody Shari as the first guest. More dates, locations and guests will be announced in early 2024.

“Since launching Reality with the King last year, I’ve been amazed by our listeners’ passion for the podcast and for the guests I’ve been able to interview,” King said. “The Reigndrops’ feedback has been crucial to our success, and they’ve been blowing up my DMs asking for a live tour. They asked, we listened and we’re thrilled to kick off the tour and the new year with Melody.”

King has worked on a number of successful reality TV shows, including The Real Housewives of New Jersey, The Real Housewives of Atlanta, and Love and Marriage for Oprah Winfrey’s OWN network, as well as hosting OWN’s first late-night talk show The Nightcap with Carlos King.

Launched in April 2022, the podcast goes behind the scenes of iconic reality shows, drawing on King’s experiences and perspective to give listeners insight into their inner workings. King is also frequently joined by celebrity guests including NeNe Leakes, Teresa Giudice and Megan McCain.

The podcast is part of the continuing trend of podcasts based on discussing and dissecting reality TV shows, which has continued to evolve in recent years with companion and aftershow podcasts, as well as podcasts like The Ringer’s forthcoming show An American Scandoval, digging into the high-profile affair between Vanderpump Rules cast members.
