TMZ learned that producers are also surprised that it's hard to convince recognizable LA names to appear considering what ratings booms the other two franchises are
but no one is willing to embarrass themselves enough to sign on.
Sources say that in the interim the show will start shooting story lines for a bevy of smaller stars who have already signed contracts. The names in rotation are Booke Valentine, radio DJ Yesi Ortiz, rapper Hazel-E, and video vixen Bria Myles.
Meanwhile the producers will be working overtime to tantalize a household name to join the roster.
