(The Magazine Plus Editorial):- Los Angeles, Oct 20, 2020 (Issuewire.com) – When Amazon said no, Dr. Venus said yes! The Hot Mess Millionaire series is based on the life of Dr. Venus Opal Reese. From being homeless on the “mean streets” of Baltimore, MD, to Stanford University with a PhD, to Black Woman Millionaire. Dr. Venus reveals the “raw and uncut” reality of what it TRULY takes to be “self-made.”
A mansion. Luxury cars. World travel. Multimillion-dollar home-based business. Happy marriage. Bestselling author. Dr. Venus had made it “out” and was living the American Dream. But when the trauma from living on the streets finally caught up with her, the Cinderella life she had created became a soul-crushing nightmare.

The pilot of Dr. Venus’s docuseries, “Hot Mess Millionaire,” has accumulated over two million streams and counting in less than six months with more than 190 five-star reviews on Amazon Prime. But when Dr. Venus submitted the entire series to Amazon, it was turned down. “I was devastated,” says Reese. “For all their talk about making room at the table for women and people of color, it appears those seats are reserved for superstars, not up and coming writers/producers. Make no mistake: I’m extremely grateful they streamed my pilot. They didn’t have to. It has exposed me to people who would never have known of my work. I had awesome reviews and there was a hunger for a Black Woman speaking truth on their platform. I was so certain they would want the rest of the series since they had greenlit the pilot.”
“I am self-producing the series on my YouTube channel and sharing it with my tribe on social media. We as Black Women often can’t wait for a seat at the table. Most times, we must build our own table.”
The eight-episode series starts Thursday, Oct 22, 2020, at 4pm PST on YouTube. For exclusive access, “1st Look Screening” of each episode and business Q&A with Dr. Venus, be sure to join the Hot Mess Millionaire Facebook Community. “I’m committed to empowering Black Women to have our own, so we don’t have to wait to be chosen.”
