“I hope somebody give her some kind of job, the National Enquirer or somebody gives her a check because she’s in everybody’s business but her own,” this memorable quote stated by K. Michelle from Love and Hip Hop Atlanta is what reality TV producer Mona Scott-Young might be saying. The TV producer has been looking to expand her “Love & Hip Hop franchise to Los Angeles, California. However, there is a problem. According to TMZ, filming begins later this month and producers are still scrambling to secure a notable celebrity to headline the show.
Initially, it was reported that Ray J was supposed to headline the spin-off with his rumored romantic interest Teairra Mari. However, TMZ is reporting that “Love and Hip Hop LA” producer was unable to secure the deal because Ray J had already committed to hosting Oxygen’s “Bad Girls Club All-Stars’ and would be unavailable for filming. Thus, reportedly the show remains without a celebrity headliner.
Sources close to the production are saying that when filming begins this month, they will begin by following the storylines of the smaller stars who have already signed on to buy time, until they secure a bigger name celebrity. The stars that have already been added to the cast reportedly include Brooke Valentine, video vixen Bria Myles, rapper Hazel-E and radio DJ Yesi Ortiz.
Scott-Young was quoted during a recent interview with Atlanta’s Hot 107.9, that the next spinoff will most likely be in Los Angeles. “We’ve been looking at a few cities, it’s feeling like we will land in L.A.,” Scott said. “L.A. feels like the next city … Again it’s about struggling artists trying to make it and that’s what’s great about the franchise, but it’s feeling like we’ve got some great stories to tell in L.A.”“Every season I wonder what can we do to top ourselves and what else is out there and somehow the reality Gods are always smiling,” the Love and Hip Hop producer added.
There are a lot of struggling artist out there, let’s hope the Gods are smiling in LA and Scott-Young can find the talent she needs to continue to make Love and Hip Hop a smash.
