Ray J’s relationship with season 1 winner, Cocktail, seemed to turn sour just weeks after the 1st season ended. It’s rumored Ray J dumped Cocktail so he could film a second season of his hit dating show. With names like Popper, Lava, Fettucini and Trouble, surely Ray J will find his one true love among this bunch.
The new season is set to premier on VH1 on Monday, Nov. 2 at 9/8c.
World famous R&B superstar Ray J is back for another season of For the Love of Ray J. Last season Ray brought 14 beautiful women to his home to see if he could find love — and he thought he did. After going through challenges, dates and eliminations Cocktail won Ray J’s heart and the two of them hoped things would work out, but it wasn’t meant to be. Just because things didn’t work out with Cocktail doesn’t mean Ray didn’t have blast. Ray wants to give love a second chance, so he hit up VH1 and told them he wanted to do it just like last time, but better.
Theybf is reporting that Monica Leon aka Danger from The Love of Ray J is now pregnant. Yes she’s really pregnant this time judging from the above photo that was taken this weekend in the Hamptons.
Her man and the assumable father of her unborn child looks to be her ex fiance, Gabriel Cannon. Gabriel is the younger brother of Nick Cannon. Congrats to Danger. I am however a bit sad we won’t be getting any For the Love of Danger dating show any time soon.
UPDATE – Danger has confirmed via her twitter that she is indeed pregnant.
We announced a few days ago that VH1′s top dating reality show, For The Love of Ray J would be returning for a second season. The reason given was allegedly due to the fact that the relationship between Ray J and Cocktail did not work out. Well we pretty much called this a lie, due to the fact that the relationship never had a chance.
Ray J had signed up for a 2nd season while the 1st season was still airing on VH1, thus never giving his relationship with Cocktail a chance to develop. Cocktail released a statement to Bossip pretty much echoing the same thing. It’s very obvious that she has some resentment towards Ray J in this statement.
An excerpt from the statement is below -
“Just like any other relationship we took it day by day. We would hang out, have fun, laugh, share stories, and watch TV. Over time as we got to know each other more and more he would tell me things and often times they would hurt my feelings. I guess the brutal truth about him not being exclusive with me and still ‘hooking up’ with girls made me realize that it wasn’t going to work. I hate feeling like I failed and let’s be real no woman likes to quit a relationship so I tried to stick it out. I wanted to be his only one not just his number one.
After awhile Ray eventually realized that I was truly genuine and sat me down to tell me that we were not going to work
out. Then the Season 2 bomb was dropped on me. What makes me mad is that I asked him if there was going to be a season 2 and he lied to my face. He sweet talked me both times I asked. Aside from that, the breaking point was when we went on tour. He didn’t come back to the room at night and I heard the whispers about him being in other rooms with girls. It made me mad because he knew he could be honest with me but he chose not to be. At this point, I emotionally checked out.”
Surprise, surprise! VH1 has now officially announced there will be a 2nd season of For the Love of Ray. This comes has no surprise as the first season was a big hit for VH1.
The sad part about this is that Cocktail, the winner of the first season, never stood a chance. A source close toRay J informed us months ago that a deal had been struck for a second season. The deal for the 2nd season was struck while the first season was still airing on VH1. I highly doubt Cocktail knew about this.
While I’m happy we get a second season of this show, I do find it quite sad that the people involved with these shows, Ray J included, have no problem playing with people’s emotions.
More information on the 2nd season and casting is below -
“4.2 million viewers tuned in to see Ray J pick his leading lady on the For the Love of Ray J finale episode. Cocktail was crowned the winner and all seemed great for the happy couple. We next saw them on the reunion episode where both let viewers know they were excited to see how their relationship would progress! Ray J thought he had found “the one” but unfortunately, things didn’t work out – and he’s now single again.
As viewers saw last season, dating a hip-hip star is a full-time job which includes red carpet events, the paparazzi and handling all the crazy fans. For Ray J, dating has never been an issue – it’s finding the perfect woman that can be harder than you think… especially when you’re a celebrity. Since things didn’t exactly work out with his last girlfriend, Ray J is back to give love a second chance. As R&B’s most eligible bachelor, Ray J is determined to find a woman he can settle down with.
VH1 is looking for women with confidence, personality and class that can handle the pressure of being with a superstar and turn Ray J into a one-woman man. Beginning today, viewers and fans will have the opportunity to submit themselves for consideration on For the Love of Ray J 2. Online users can log onto VH1’s For the Love of Ray J 2 casting site at www.rayjcasting.com.”
In very weird and strange news today, the NYPost is reporting that Tila Tequila is claiming to be dating Ray J. Which is interesting because Ray J is suppose to be dating Cocktail, the winner of his reality show – For the Love of Ray J.
According to the Post, Tila posted a blog at 3:45 a.m. this morning she stating “my baby is Ray J…..and no man has made me feel so loved and so happy in such a long time.” She was apparently trying to clear up “rumors” about people saying she is dating Diddy and Tyrese (even though no one has heard any of these “rumors”)
“Tila Tequila is officially dating Ray J!” she said “I think we make the cutest couple…. don’t you?”
Ray J added fuel to this rumor by posting the following on his twitter today – “@officialTila love u more!!!! you my future wifey.” Which is even more interesting because he posted the following to Cocktail on Friday via his Twitter – “@cocktailvh1 what’s up baby.. You know I wish u were here with me.”
So are Ray J and Tila really dating, or just being attention whores? And How does Cocktail feel about this? Only time will tell.
Update: Cocktail just posted the following on her Twitter – “Tila Tequila is doin waaaayyy too much! She better fall back on that bullshit! She wish she had my man. Ray is all mine!”
Lasting longer that most reality relationships, seems like Cocktail and Ray J are still going strong as a couple. The above photo was reportedly taken last week.
It will be interesting to see how this all plays out as VH1 has greenlighted a 2nd season of For The Love of Ray J. The show got some very good ratings. Cocktail talks about her feelings towards Ray J and being in love with him in her VH1 interview below -
What has your communication with Ray been like since the show wrapped?
If we don’t talk everyday, we at least text each other. We make a point to see each other at least twice a month. That’s just what our schedules can fit. He’s on the road and doing stuff, and lately, I’ve been on the road as well, with appearances and whatnot.
What’s the status of your relationship? Is he your boyfriend?
Yeah. He’s my boyfriend, and the fact that I’m not seeing my boyfriend as much as I’d like to is different from what I’m used to. I would love to see him everyday and have him come home to me every night. But that’s not what it is, and I have to take it for what it is. I’m patiently learning his lifestyle. I expected this, but I’m sad now that I’m going through it. But it just makes the times I see him even more special.
Do you love him?
I do. I’m in love with him. I’m head over heels. When I tell my girlfriends that they’re like, “Are you kidding me?” No, this is the only man in my life right now that can say anything to me and make me fall into tears. It takes someone that I care about to go through with that emotion and show my vulnerability. I know I cried every three seconds on the show, but I care about him so much that he can say anything, the sweetest thing, the most horrible thing, and I burst into tears. I’m so overwhelmed.
What did you think when that was turned on you and your participation on the Bad Girls Club became a plot point? Did you think you’d be eliminated?
No. The girls were kind of talking about it early on. When I entered the house, they told me I looked familiar. I kind of just drew the attention away from myself. I knew then that I would have to address it to Ray at some point, but I didn’t early on because I didn’t want him to think I was there for the wrong reasons. I knew that if nobody said anything and I was the first to later on, maybe he’d get to know me a little bit and not eliminate me because I was on another reality show. I thought I could at least get to the point where he gave me the benefit of the doubt.
That was good strategy, too. Any thoughts on being portrayed as a gold-digger on Bad Girls Club and then ending up with a guy who makes considerable bank on this show?
The whole gold-digger thing was honestly something I said to better my chances of getting on a show that I thought had a different purpose. I thought that by saying I was something I wasn’t, it would give me an image. I thought it was going to make me more of an interesting character for people to watch. That’s the only reason I said things like that. If I was really like that, I would come out in things that I say or my personality. I’m a social worker. I’m not into that. If you look back on my roster of ex-boyfriends, none of them are wealthy. None are famous. Nothing. I’m a down-to-earth type of gal. I don’t date men for their status. If people judge me on saying I’m a gold-digger three years ago, so be it. But it was for entertainment purposes. I wanted to be on TV. And it wasn’t even like I was a main character. I was a replacement, and I was boring.
Are you ready for The Love of Ray J’s season finale this Monday? Well we are! Below is a sneak preview of what’s to come. The rumor is also that one of the three remaining contestants will quit, hmm wondering who that could be?
