'True Life/Now' Star Javonda Hughes Looks More Like a Snapchat Filter Every Day

By

Good news for fans of the original MTV True Life, which ran its course over 22 seasons and finally came to a close in 2017: the award-winning team behind that legendary show are back with True Life/Now. In a similar docuseries approach, MTV's True Life/Now examines the challenges of real people who struggle to cope with today's all-encompassing social media environment.

And tonight's episode will dive in part into the life of Javonda Hughes, a 22-year-old beauty stylist who's fully obsessed with looking like a Snapchat filter. So much so that she never posts a photo of herself that isn't heavily edited. Although it pains her twin sister Javonne to see Javonda so consumed by her goal to look like a filter, the stylist won't stop at anything to become "anyone else than who I was."
