Love & Hip Hop - Going Down in the “A”

Reality television has certainly come a long way from the inception of MTV’s Real World and CBS’ Survivor. As raw as those shows seemed at the time, in comparison to what’s being displayed today, those show are...#ratedG.

Whether you are a fan of reality TV or “not so much,” to see everyday life situations by individuals who downright can’ t stand each other, has become addictive for most.

Love & Hip Hop, one of my favorites, will be returning this June (June 18th) with a new twist, a peach one- ATLANTA! This particular run will take place in Atlanta with a very interesting mix of characters.

Press Release via VH1’s Blog:

“This summer, VH1 is bringing a southern-fried tale of struggle, love and temptation to Atlanta, Georgia with an all new season of “Love And Hip Hop.” Premiering June 18 at 8PM, VH1's docu-soap “Love and Hip Hop: Atlanta” proves love, music and the game know no boundaries. As the newest installment in the successful “Love And Hip Hop” franchise, “Love And Hip Hop: Atlanta” will feature an all new cast with their eyes on the prize of fortune, fame and family.

Among the main characters in this 10-episode series are Stevie J, a three-time Grammy Award-Winning producer who has worked with artists such as Diddy, Jay-Z and Mariah Carey, Stevie’s longtime girlfriend Mimi Faust, and a fiery up-and-coming Latina rapper named Joseline.

There’s no shortage of drama with this strong-willed trio. Also featured are Lil Scrappy, best known for his 2006 smash hit, “Money in the Bank,” his girlfriend Erica Dixon, and his mother, a former hustler known as “Momma Dee.”

The hometown hero, Atlanta rapper Rasheeda, is still searching for that big hit after years in the hip hop game, but she’s constantly at odds with her manager Kirk Frost - who also happens to be her husband. Rounding out the cast are the talented songbird K Michelle, and Trinidadian R and B singer Karlie Redd.”

Although I’m a native New Yorker and absolutely loved the New York cast, I am quite sure that HOTlanta will keep us on our toes and eyes glued to the screen!
