There will never be another Love & Hip Hop Atlanta. I wish Mona Scott Young would just figure this out and spare us all of these L&HH franchises, but I know that will never happen. So, let’s just dive into the premiere of Love & Hip Hop Hollywood.
We first meet Teairra Mari, a singer who signed with Def Jam when she was sixteen. No longer with the label, Teairra is determined to prove she’s still in it to win it when it comes to her music. Hazel-E is a former superstar publicist who left her high powered career to pursue her dream of being a rapper. She and Teairra are roommates, and they are catching up after some time apart. The love of Teairra’s life is Ray-J, and she reminds us that we may know him from a few songs and perhaps a tape or two. I love it. Teairra reveals that while the pair had an on-and-off relationship for nine years, she hasn’t seen or talked to Ray-J in eight months when she found out he was cheating. Hazel can’t believe they’ve been apart for so long, and I have to wonder what “roommates” go eight months without a gossip session or two. Sounds a bit staged to me. Ray-J has moved his new lady into his house without returning any of Teairra’s belongings, and she’s ready to rectify that situation.
VH1 promises: “A new group of R&B and hip hop hopefuls have their eyes on the prize and are ready to deliver the shock, drama, and scandal as only the #1 social show of the summer can do. With the music industry constantly evolving, these artists’ unwavering ambition keeps them hustling to stay at the top and willing to lay it all on the line.”
Love & Hip Hop: Hollywood premieres September 15 on VH1. Rumor has is that the cast and their storylines leave a lot to be desired – Toto, I’ve a feeling we’re not in Atlanta anymore – we shall see! Check out the full cast and sneak peek below.
Y’all know I’m not going to know what to do with myself on Monday nights when this season of Love & Hip Hop: Atlanta comes to an end. Sure, VH1 will have something just as dramatic, and catty, and horrific to slide right into its time slot, as if we won’t be mourning the loss of the Puerto Rican Princess and Benzino’s neck. I’m not buying what you’re selling, VH1.
Mona Scott Young tries to sell us on other franchises of the show, but nothing and no one can measure up to the scripted insanity that is Atlanta. New York City? Please! I’m yawning just thinking about it! And what about Love & Hip Hop: L.A.? Is that even still happening?
Love & Hip Hop is propelling their popularity to expand big time! The show is filming an LA spinoff but it's in a major casting crisis.
Ray J was supposed to be the main star of the show, but he backed out leaving producers in peril as the scramble to recast. Producers were counting on Ray J to be the big name draw for viewers but he's currently preoccupied with filming Bad Girls Club All-Stars.
With the popularity of Love & Hip Hop it only makes sense that a more and more notorious cast joins the ranks!
First came the rumors that they are expanding the franchise, and now a new rumor says Chris Brown's ex Karrueche Tran along with some other famous hangerons celebs will be joining the show! Anemail leaked by Sandra Rose supposedly revealed Mona Scott-Young's casting plans!
The email claimed to have booked several famous faces for a west coast franchise! Mona is reportedly only allowed to choose one new location per VH-1 and the shortlist is Houston, LA, or New Orleans.
With Love & Hip Hop Atlanta bringing in massive ratings, it seems Mona Scott Young is looking to expand her franchise to LA. According to the rumor mill fans can expect a LA version of the show which will include Ray J, infamous reality show hopper and Kim K sex tape counterpart!
Joining him as one of the two primary cast members is Teairra Mariaccording to Sister 2 Sister. The rest of the show is still in the casting process. Teairra has already been vetted as a L&HH potential since she's appeared as a regular on the NY version of the show.
I don't know about y'all, but I'm excited to be one day closer to the weekend! In Thursday's Kardashian news, former 98 Degrees front man Nick Lachey has some cryptic things to say about his romantic time with Kim Kardashian. Am I the only one who totally forgot about their brief fling? He basically confirms what we all already know…Kimmie loves the paps!
Also, Scott Disick and Kourtney Kardashian reveal that they are fine with their situation as is. Neither predicts a big wedding anywhere in their future. Again, no shocker there!
