Strip Club Queens: A Brand New D.C. Reality Show to take place at a D.C. Strip Club

Stadium Strip Club, one D.C. venue that has been in the headlines since the day it opened may now play as the venue of choice for a brand new reality show. Where many have made the nations capital out to be boring place and the failure of D.C.'s real world and real housewives reality shows. Is it possible that a new reality show called “Strip Club Queens” could make its mark on the national market.

The now world famous strip club located in the Northeast neighborhood of Langdon, already has worldwide recognition thanks to the likes of superstars like Drake and Lil Wayne making regular appearances and dropping verses about the venue and Diddy and Floyd Mayweather spending hundreds of thousands in the venue.

The show is slated to debut this coming fall, and it will follow in the footsteps of similar female-oriented reality shows including Real Housewives, Basketball Wives and even Mob Wives. One angle that will be unique is that the main characters will be local D.C. dancers and many familiar faces you see on a regular at your favorite nightspots.

“You’re not going to see a bunch of fighting,” says Delmond Newton, the show’s creator. “You’re really going to be able to say, ‘Now I know why girls strip.’”

The show will follow one woman’s struggle to open a salon, the life of a recovering addict and one dancer who supports her boyfriend, mom and baby while living in a trailer park. In total, five strippers and one waitress from Stadium Club will be featured on the show. “What we decided to do was to create a show that focuses on their lives outside of the club,” says Newton.

His production company, Newton Media Group, began filming the show in the spring and will continue taping through August. Newton plans for “Strip Club Queens” to be the first of a franchise that will include “Strip Club Queens of Miami” and “Strip Club Queens of Houston.”
