​We Are All This Woman Who Got Caught Rapping to Salt-N-Pepa

Ever since I first watched Motormouth, that VH1 show where people would unknowingly be taped in their cars singing along to their car jams—A VERY VULNERABLE MOMENT I MIGHT ADD—I have been pretty afraid of um, secretly being filmed going to town on a song in the car.

'The Salt-N-Pepa Show': It's Necessary That You Watch

The Salt-N-Pepa Show debuted on VH1 last night and we totally love it. To be more precise, we totally love Pepa. Seriously, she keeps it real — which can be a difficult task when it comes to reality television, these days.
