There’s an old saying that when one door closes, another door opens. I am so thankful that holds true with VH1 and the Love & Hip Hop franchise. Sure, this season of Love & Hip Hop Atlanta is going by way too quickly (seriously…is it shorter than normal?), and I’ll miss Stevie J., Yung Joc, and the crew’s crazy shenanigans, but at least we’ve got Love & Hip Hop Hollywood waiting in the wings! Atlanta may be the fan favorite, but laughing at Ray J squeak through each episode as he talks his tough guy game is a close second!
Thankfully, we won’t have to wait much longer as the sophomore season premieres Monday, September 7th at 8PM/ET. Judging by the previews that have been released, we’re in for quite a treat! In case you were wondering, Ray J and Soulja Boy (I’d forgotten how much he looks like a tatted preteen–adorable!) are still having issues with monogamy. Say it ain’t so! Don’t believe me? Enjoy the preview clips after the jump!
As you all know Memorial Day is a time of remembrance and gratitude for those who lost their lives serving our country. It is also the day that VH1 upped the stakes by hosting not just a reality wedding, but a live one at that! That’s right, folks! Yandy Smith and Mendeecees Harris of Love & Hip Hop fame tied the know last night in a live two-hour special.
Nina Parker and Stevie J. are hosting the festivities for the live wedding extravaganza. The guest list runs the gamut from legitimate reality star powerhouses and music moguls (Kandi Burruss being both) to the cast of Mob Wives. Karen Gravano is mildly flirting with Big Tigger who is emceeing the cocktail hour before the ceremony. The venue is complete with a red carpet for Joseline Hernandez and Rasheeda Frost, a coiffed and made-up Yandy joins Nina in an oversize robe to share the exasperating dress debacle and wrong shoe size shenanigans that have been plaguing the bridesmaids for the past twenty-four hours. So much for Yandy getting some R&R the night before her big day!
For the love of Ray J, I don’t know how I’m going to make it through another season of Love & Hip Hop: Hollywood! Thankfully, I won’t have to suffer through it without Brandi’s little brother. It was touch and go for a moment though. Phew!
The franchise has had its ups and downs, but L&HH: ATL seems to have the lock on the popularity and the rest of the cities seem to be flailing…although not for the lack of manufactured drama. However, Ray J isn’t a fan of creating craziness for ratings, and he’s been threatening to peace out from the series if his story line didn’t start focusing less on mayhem and more on his business pursuits.
Above, Kim shared, “Here is the 1st look of my February cover with Australian Vogue!!!!” Kim opened up about being a working mother (BWAHAHAHA) at the shoot. “Since I’ve become a mom I’ve figured out how to prioritize it the best I ever have,” she claimed. “It’s definitely harder but you figure it out. The biggest misconception about me is that I don’t work hard and that everything comes easy. I like to prove people wrong, and just live my life, and do what I do, and work hard. I’m proud of that.”
Our favorite reality TV stars cannot get enough of the spotlight during their regularly scheduled time slots, so they take to social media to share even more of their daily lives with us. And we love them for it! Here’s a roundup of some of our favorite photos from this week. Enjoy!
Some reality TV stars were caught doing good deeds this week as they readied for Christmas. Others were spotted doing some last minute gift shopping. And others hit the red carpet for pre-holiday events.
