In his new show, Rivers, a former VH1 talk-show host, shares his experiences in and out of show business. Directed by David Gautschy, the show, a press release informs, "reveals Bobby at both his most outrageous and his most honest — live and uncensored. Bobby dishes the dirt on his life, and what he thinks of others' lives, as well as what it means to be two minorities in show business: African-American and gay." Rivers, who grew up in South Central Los Angeles, made his professional television debut in 1980 on Milwaukee's "PM Magazine." He eventually landed work as a VH1 veejay. Other jobs include host of the syndicated game show "Bedroom Buddies," a stint on "Weekend Today in New York" and the host of the Cablevision film review/interview show, "Metro Movies with Bobby Rivers."
