Lifetime is introducing a new reality show called “Double Divas.”

It’s not a mini-version of TV One’s “R&B Divas.”

It’s a look at a six-year-old custom intimate apparel store LiviRae Lingerie in Kennesaw. The store’s motto: “No bust too big or small. We fit them all!”

The show debuts officially on Thursday, January 10, 2013 at 10 p.m. but a sneak-peek episode will air first on January 1 at 10:30 p.m.

The owners and best friends are Molly Hopkins and Cynthia Richards.

The show has the same production company (NorthSouth Productions) as “Say Yes to the Dress: Atlanta” on TLC.

Here’s the descriptive from the press release:

Boasting a hilariously unfiltered cast exuding Southern charm and hospitality, Double Divas follows LiviRae owners and best friends Molly Hopkins, the “bra whisperer,” and Cynthia Richards, the “Thomas Edison” of custom lingerie, as they display their natural talent helping women with any and all intimate apparel needs. Molly, who has the habit of acting as therapist to her customers, is on a mission to get women in to the right size bras…one cup at a time. Cynthia, LiviRae’s chief designer, brings her creative vision to life by designing sexy and sometimes quirky garments, giving customers an array of selections to spice up her (or his) life. Along with their stunning young apprentice, Loren, these bra experts will go to any length to making sure everyone who walks through LiviRae’s doors finds the right lingerie that highlights their beauty and unleashes their sexuality – no matter their shape or size…or occasion. The series will follow the ladies as they travel across the region in their LiviRae brazier branded truck on their way to fittings, bridal showers and various other bustier business. In the end, the two mavens make a dynamic duo that spreads their heart, soul and laughter with clients – wives, girlfriends, husbands and boyfriends – seeking answers to questions typically reserved for the bedroom.

Named after their daughters Olivia and Rainey, LiviRae Lingerie was launched in 2006 by Molly and Cynthia, who originally became friends while working together in a lingerie shop, where they saw an opportunity to expand the business of intimate apparel in the South. Through tremendous odds, lots of laughter, a few tears and multiple maxed out credit cards, LiviRae has grown to become a must-stop for women on shopping sprees, whether they are looking for a simple bra or a fishnet stocking to wear for more desirous situations. When it comes down to running the boutique, Molly works the business side while Cynthia is in charge of creative design. The two take opposite approaches to every situation, clashing often, but always love and enjoy each other as dear friends shaping the intimate apparel world one bra at a time!

This gives the term “The Boob Tube” a whole new meaning.

I can’t wait for the episode where Honey Boo Boo’s mother goes to LiviRae Lingerie in Kennesaw for a fitting.

(Yes, kids, this is sarcasm.)

Molly is my niece!! She is such a wonderful, kind and caring person, and she is absolutely stunning. As for Cynthia, I am sorry to say that I have never met her. I just know that, together, they make an unstoppable duo. I am very proud of Molly, for many reasons. First of all, I am proud that her business has been soooooo successful. It is not surprising because Molly has always worked hard to accomplish each and every goal that she has set for herself. Secondly, she is not using this business only for personal gain. The humanitarian side of it all is where most of my pride lies. Anyone who doesn’t know, “better call somebody” (family pun), because these ladies also donate a great deal of their lives and success to help as much as possible in the fight against breast cancer. So, please do some research before you make any hasty decisions. I can’t wait to see the show! I am sure that it will be very entertaining as well as informative. I hope you know how very proud I am of you, Molly, and how much I love you!!!!!!
Congratulations and good luck to everyone involved in this venture. Love to All, Aunt Sue!!!!!!

I have been buying my bras there since they opened and now can’t even try on a bra elsewhere. They are fantastic and the customer service is the best I have ever expeienced.
