Everything You Need To Know About 'Put A Ring On It' Season 2

Will they decide to call it quits, or is it time to officially put a ring on it?

Culture & Entertainment

The OWN Network returns with its highly anticipated Will Packer-produced relationship series, Put A Ring On It for Season 2. Life and relationship master coach, Dr. Nicole LaBeach will follow three couples as they navigate their way to the altar. Along their journey, love and trust between each partner, will be tested as they witness their significant others date complete strangers.


Temptation and consequences are at stake, as they push their relationships to the limit and see if there is a love connection they've been missing all along. The question is, will they decide to call it quits, or is it time to officially put a ring on it?

Entrepreneur Jessica and former NFL player Eric have been at odds in their relationship from the very beginning. The former pro-baller might have spent his fair share of time playing the field and as a result, the two are not always on the same page about matters of the heart. Though the couple have been dating for four years, an "I do" might still be out of reach.

Comedian Eric and industry professional LaRhonda have their heart matters on lock, but their money matters? Not so much. For this couple who have been dating for three years, what's keeping them from going down the aisle is a difference in tax brackets. Eric longs to feel more financially established before putting a ring on it.

14 years is a long time to be dealing with someone without the security of where the relationship is headed. This is probably one of the reasons why this couple have been on and off for over a decade. Though the relationship is now progressing for the former basketball player and Field Mob member (by way of moving in together), it still seems they are not completely on the same page about what forever looks like.

While the words "I do" are on pause for the couples, Dr. LaBeach uses her 20+ years of coaching experience to be an anchor using her professional tools to keep the couples connected. "If you can effectively communicate, so many things shift for a relationship. Nonverbal communication gives access to words so that the other person can understand," Dr. LaBeach shares.

When asked how important is it to have life coaching and therapy throughout a relationship, Dr. LaBeach responds, "If I could have it my way, it would be a requirement for every relationship on a quarterly basis, to connect with a coach or therapist to make sure that things that are going to strengthen a relationship are being activated, and the things that deteriorate a relationship can be excused and given a quick exit."

As the hit Will Packer Productions show kicks off their new season, Dr. LaBeach joyfully makes it known that she is not so much rooting for the couples when doing her job, but rooting for their relationships. She explains the outcome is more meaningful and cherishable when having that mindset.

Put A Ring On It Season 2 will air this Friday, June 25 at 10/9c p.m. on the Oprah Winfrey Network. Check out the first episode of the season before it premieres by clicking here.

What 14 People Say 'Great Sex' Means To Them

What is the difference between bad, average, and great sex? If I ask thirty people this question, I would get thirty different answers. As someone who's had their fair share of both good and not-so-good sex, I understand that there is no one size fits all answer to this question. "Great sex" can mean different things to different people. Case in point, I once had an amazing sexual experience with a guy that a mutual “friend” had a horrible experience with. Great sex is subjective AF! According to the mutual friend his sex was subpar at best. One person’s trash is another one’s treasure. Great sex boils down to what is good for you and your partner at the moment. No two people are the same so no two sexual experiences will be the same either.

Halle Bailey On The Revolutionary Act Of Wearing Her Locs As Ariel

Black women and girls raved over the singer/ actress’s beauty as the beloved character while she belted out the Disney classic song “Part of Your World.” And one of the most noticeable things that many fans pointed out was that the character’s red hair was made of locs.

5 Times Megan Thee Stallion & Pardison Fontaine Showed Their Love On The 'Gram

Another day, another photo of Megan Thee Stallion that went viral. But this time she had a little help from her boyfriend Pardison “Pardi” Fontaine. The “Pressurelicious” artist’s fans were in for a surprise a few days ago after Megan posted a photo of herself lying on the floor with her legs up and wrapped around Pardi’s waist. Pardi appeared to be focused on playing his video game while Meg’s derriere was tooted in the air but he managed to wrap his arms around it as he held the controller.

The Mamie 'Till' Movie Wants To Empower Us

Sitting in the theater getting ready to watch Nopefor the third time, I was excited, like a good film nerd, to see my friend's first-time reactions to the fun UFO horror-comedy. My heart sank immediately when a trailer for the film Till, which follows the life and legacy of Emmett Till's mother, Mamie, started playing first.

My knee-jerk reaction, of course, comes from years of watching film and TV that have exploited Black trauma onscreen and were created with little (if any) consideration for what could emotionally trigger the Black audience. The 1955 murder of Emmett Till is so heartbreaking and inherently violent; would this film make us live through that violence on screen?

Fortunately, no!

This week, before watching Gina Prince-Bythewood's incredible The Woman King, a featurette for Till played in place of a trailer and it soothed my fears.

"There will be no physical violence against Black people on screen," the film's award-winning director and co-writer Chinonye Chukwu says in the featurette. "I'm not interested in relishing in that kind of physical trauma. We're going to begin and end in a place of joy," she says.

Starring Danielle Deadwyler (whose heartfelt performance on HBO's Station Eleven stole the show) as Mamie, Till is a celebration of Mamie's tireless activism which sparked the civil rights movement that continues today and ultimately culminated in President Biden signing the Emmett Till Anti-Lynching Act into law just a few months ago in March 2022. "Mamie Till Mobley is a hero," says Alana Mayo, president of Orion Pictures, the production company behind the film. "I'm really, really committed to making movies not just by us, but for us," Mayo says in the featurette.

After a private screening of Till, this week, Trayvon Martin's mother, Sybrina Fulton, tweeted that the film was "#Powerful" and "a must see."

Mamie's story of courage in the face of unspeakable tragedy deserves to be told--especially as we continue the fight for civil rights today. Knowing that the Black filmmakers behind the film are centering Black joy and aiming for our empowerment through the film makes a world of difference.

TILLis in theaters October 14.
