Last week, on the premiere of Famously Single, we met the cast of “celebrities”, who are really just a hodge podge of randos desperately clinging to what little notoriety they once had. We were left with the cliffhanger of finding out who their new dating coaches would be and (plot twist!!!) it’s two of the people they met while out boozing it up and misbehaving in some run down VIP section of a club.
SURPRISE! It’s Laurel, who was sexually propositioned by a sloppy drunk Willis McGahee and Robert, who was dismissed by Aubrey O’Day. The dating coaches begin to share their feedback and Robert admits that he found it refreshing that Aubrey could go deep in their conversation but was disappointed that she didn’t think he was good enough for a goodbye. Laurel basically told Willis in the nicest way possible that he is gross. She also had interactions with Calum Best, who she thought was playing for the cameras and Josh Murray, who was downright rude. Dr. Darcy Sterling explains to everyone that Laurel and Robert are here to give the Singletons the nuts and bolts of dating while they go through the process.
OK, so tonight we got a look at E!’s new show, Famously Single, which throws eight famous(ish) celebs who are, wait for it…..single! They get guidance and counseling by Dr. Darcy Sterling, who talks about celebrity dating like it’s a plight that needs more attention and resources drawn to it. I kept waiting for a “Save the Celebrity Dating World” 800 number to flash on the bottom on the screen so I could donate one dollar a day to help save these regal creatures.
E! confirmed this afternoon that they have ordered the new 8-episode series “Famously Single” and announced the first season cast will include Brandi Glanville,DJ Pauly Dand more.
The “finding love” style reality show will not only feature Brandi and Pauly D, but also former Bachelorette star Josh Murray, singer Aubrey O’Day, model Jessica White, Somaya Reece, Willis McGahee and Calum Best.
Also below you’ll find the casts of Basketball Wives L.A. and L.A. Hair celebrating the premieres of their shows. And Jill Zarin partied in the Hamptons with Harry Dubinand others. Check out these and many more photos in the gallery!
Don't lie. Y'all have missed Somaya Reece since she departed from Love & Hip Hop. I know I have, and I certainly didn't have to refresh my memory as to what she looks like or the drama she caused during her tenure on VH1. Clearly it wasn't much or she'd likely still be on it!
I have to commend her from taking a break from scripted cat fights, girl drama, and drink tossing that has become synonymous with all VH1 reality shows. But it begs the question…what is Somaya doing now?
The singer and former reality star recently checked in with the folks of The Jasmine Brand. While Somaya is no longer gracing the small screen on L&HH, she's mastered the art of reality television stardom: do everything! Whether it's schlep a cocktail with your name on it or taking credit for some ghostwriter penning your life story, do it! I kid. Kind of.
On last night’s Love & Hip Hop, it was the Producer’s Tell All! I have to say I didn’t hate the format as much as I thought I would. With the ladies not yelling over one another, it was easier to get more questions answered… and they seemed to ask the questions viewers would want to know, aka no John Salley softballs!
The show’s executive producer Mona Scott-Young reveals that because one several cast members now refuse to be in the same room together, coughs Chrissy, the show has to forgo the traditional reunion format. Instead, viewers are treated to a behind the scenes look at the inner-workings of the show as well as one-on-one interviews with the cast.
First up, Jim Jones! The man, the myth, the dude at the center of a lot of the ladies’ drama. This season’s new cast mate, Yandy Smith was the rapper’s manager for the past eight years, and she was supposedly brought on at the request of his girlfriend Chrissy Lampkin. However, quickly, the ladies began feuding, with Jim caught in the middle. It resulted in a total breakdown of Jim and Yandy’s professional relationship which we watched play out over the course of the season.
