Vivica A. Fox, who rules the Lifetime Movie Network, is clinging tenaciously to her throne. The Keeping Up with the Joneses star was interviewed by ET’s Nischelle Turner while filming season 2 of the popular television show. The popular Wrong series on LMN, which began with a successful three-part Lifetime limited series last year, features Fox in both the lead and producing roles.
The series centers on Fox’s Robin, the matriarch of a prosperous family who, along with her four stepdaughters, will do everything it takes to defend their family and business in the event of an attack.
With the aid of family lawyer Sheldon’s (Michael Paré) legal wrangling, Robin stands to receive wealth following the passing of her second husband Webb (Ted McGinley). The family company has always come first for Carrie (Ciarra Carter), but now that Lance (Adonis Williams) is by her side, she intends to increase her role by founding the Crystal Water Fund. Prior to meeting Carter (Sam Schweikert), Kayla (Shellie Sterling), who is single at the time, is content with her life. While Pam (Arie Thompson) develops a friendship with Stephen Napoli (Chris Cleveland), the CEO of the construction company building the family’s new water plant, with who she becomes close to after someone vandalizes the project, Tara (Jasmine Aivaliotis) starts an affair with her college professor. When the kid Pam put up for adoption years ago suddenly returns, Pam is in for an even larger shock!
According to Fox, “Keeping Up With the Joneses’ major objective was to revive the Dynasty era with a little bit of catfighting, fantastic costumes, and fabulous clothing.” “To be really honest with you, I like this because I know that reality TV catfights are currently all the rage. I find that to be ineffective, but if you want me to behave aggressively, go ahead.”
The narrator of the film series is Kandi Burruss from The Real Housewives of Atlanta.
Fox expressed her gratitude for finding a home on the movie network and said that Lifetime is her “favourite” since they “know their audience.”
“The sisters have consistently helped me. They’ll stay home all weekend and watch Vivica Fox in their onesie while drinking hot cocoa “She remarked. “It has therefore become a true gift that keeps on giving. Back in the day, Lifetime was the first network to offer me my own series. My relationship with them has also drastically changed recently. They helped me become a filmmaker, and I’m very appreciative of that.”
There isn’t anything Fox hasn’t accomplished throughout her decades of acting, producing, and hosting thanks to her prodigious career. She told ET that because of her candour with her agents and management group regarding the jobs she doesn’t want to take on, they never even approach her with them.
However, Fox remembered one part eluding her, despite the fact that she had to acknowledge she had liked the directors’ ultimate decision.

The actress remembered, “The only role that I really wanted and came close to getting was Storm, but they hired Halle Berry, and she did a great job.” I suppose I could say that was the only instance, yes.
Fox makes an effort to instill in the younger actresses she works with the importance of knowing what she wants and does not want in her career. “I think everything comes down to choices, therefore I tell aspiring actresses to avoid doing roles they know they won’t enjoy. Follow your gut instinct “She spoke. “Having a triple threat is no problem. be able to dance, sing, and perform. However, you can tell when an actor is simply unfit for a part. Just the camera seems to read it to me.”
Another reason why Vivica values her partnership with Lifetime and the brand they’ve created together is because of this. She declared, “Keeping Up With the Joneses is all about girl power, and I’m the executive producer. “You have five wonderful leading females. There is a female narrator. Girls are in charge over here, so.”
Beginning on July 8, the Lifetime Movie Network will air four brand-new, two-hour episodes of Keeping Up With the Joneses.
