Veteran hip-hop artist Da Brat is sharing a never-before-seen side of herself in the new WE tv reality series Brat Loves Judy.
As someone who only recently became open about her sexuality, Da Brat says being proposed to by her girlfriend, Jesseca “Judy” Dupart, was something she “never, ever, ever, ever” thought would happen.
“First of all, it was ridiculous,” Brat tells ABC Audio of the surprise proposal. “Like, I was so stunned because I had no idea.”
She continues, “I was told that I was going to a photo shoot for [Judy’s] Kaleidoscope Hair Products…And I get there and it’s this huge thing. And I just almost passed out at least 15 times. Like everybody was there that I loved that I hadn’t seen in years. I couldn’t understand how she was able to keep this secret for so long.”
While marriage was something that Da Brat says she “just never thought about,” she now smiles when she thinks about Judy’s “breathtaking” proposal.
“I was like on cloud 10,000 every second,” she says. “Every time I turned around, [I] was like, ‘Oh, my God! Oh, my God! Like, it was so dramatic.”
And if fans are looking for more “dramatic” moments like that on the show, they’ll get it — along with a softer side of Da Brat.
“This show is going to show the most cream-puffish side of me that the world has ever seen, because I never show that,” she admits. “I’ve always felt like I should keep that side for only people that I already know and that love me already. So, they’re gonna really get a serious inside look of my vulnerability, and my love for [Judy].”
Brat Loves Judy premieres Thursday at 9 p.m. ET on WE tv.
