Plus Size Model Anansa Sims and Beverly Johnson’s New Reality Show on OWN

In “Beverly’s Full House,” supermodel Beverly Johnson steps out of her role as glamorous fashion icon and opens her home to her daughter Anansa (a plus-size model), son-in-law David (a former NFL player), and their newborn baby Ava, in an effort to reconnect with her daughter and to help her growing family get ahead financially during a tough economy.

Despite following in her mother’s footsteps, Anansa’s relationship with her mother has always been fragile.  With the arrival of her daughter Ava, Anansa wants to heal her strained relationship with her mother and agrees to move her family into Beverly’s home.

Humorous and heartfelt, “Beverly’s Full House” explores the unpredictable dynamic between mother, daughter and son-in-law.  Throughout the season, Beverly tries with varying degrees of success to bond with her daughter and son-in-law.  Despite sometimes overstepping her boundaries and at times having her intentions misunderstood, she loves her family and is determined to strengthen their relationship.  Along the way, viewers will witness the drama, good times and bad times as Beverly’s traditional/non-traditional family comes together, bound by love, and learns to make it all work.

“Beverly’s Full House” is produced for OWN: Oprah Winfrey Network by Good Clean Fun.  Its executive producers are Jason Carbone, Nick Lee and Beverly Johnson.

Beverly Johnson is the first African-American woman to appear on the cover of Vogue.

    Beverly Johnson has a mental disconnect. How can she standby and let a random man she is dating speak to her daughter in such a mean and discusting manner? He just jumped the gun, much like the life coach he recommended. I would never allow someone to speak to my child like that, for no reasoh. She didn’t even come to her daughters defense. I guess Beverly thinks her men friends can say whatever they want to Anansa, because she does. Anansa handled the situation gracefully. Beverly defended him by saying. “he was showing tough love”. He doesn’t know anything about tough love. Anansa is not a delinquent or addict.. She is a grown woman. He is lucky Anansa’s husband didn’t choke he stuffing out of him. Beverly, wake up, and read the tea leaves. If he talks to your daughter like that when he is unprovoked, how is he going to treat you in the future?
