It turns out the rumors are true:Love & Hip Hop creator Mona Scott Young is taking the show on the road! The mega-mogul, who has found success in both New York and Atlanta, has reportedly settled on expanding the franchise to Los Angeles, and has already started filming — sans a major headliner.
As you may have heard, a slew of big names were rumored to be attached to the show, including Kim Kardashian’s gal pal Blac Chyna, Chris Brown’s on-again/off-again girlfriend Karrueche Tran, and singer/reality TV veteran Ray-J. However, it’s rumored that once word leaked of the possible cast, all the big ticket parties dropped out — including Ray J, who would’ve had to come on board the show as a producer due to his current contract as the host of Oxygen’s Bad Girls Club All Stars.
Sources for TMZ say that Mona and co. have been scrambling to find a few big ticket stars, but will be filming the storylines of smaller celebs — including singer Brooke Valentine, radio DJ Yesi Ortiz, rapper Hazel-E, and video vixen Bria Myles — and will work on finding the bigger names later.
We can only hope that this strategy will work for Mona and that this spin-off will be just as successful as Love & Hip Hop and Love & Hip Hop Atlanta!
