Remember the TV show Baldwin Hills? That show about young African American teenagers who come from rich families? In other words, it was the black version of Laguna Beach that aired from June 2007 to March 2009 on BET. Yes, many people thought it was corny and partially scripted, but the show was actually success and lasted three seasons. In fact, a lot of people grew fond of some of the characters on the show. It’s been three years since the show ended, and we know we’re not the only one’s curious what these young entertainers ended up doing with their lives. Most of them have completely disappeared into obscurity, while others are still trying to make their mark in various fields. Let’s have a look at what some of the most memorable characters are up to now.

Moriah Johnson season 1-3

First off, let’s start with the jock that every girl wanted…Moriah Johnson. The son of NBA player Marques Johnson, the basketball stud was one of the few characters to star in all three seasons of the show, which is not surprising considering he was the center of attention from all the girls. Now a basketball player at Tuskegee University, Moriah recently made headlines for more than playing basketball. A shirtless photograph of him cuddling with another shirtless man surfaced on the internet in May of last year, stirring up rumors that he is gay. Johnson has since denied the rumors, claiming it was a prank by him and his brother.

Gerren Taylor (Season 1-3)

Who could forget Gerren? The aspiring young model who was caught in many of Moriah’s love triangles. She definitely had her fair share of haters that came along with it. Perhaps it was just jealousy because of her successful modeling career? At one point, she was signed to the Ford Modeling Agency and even modeled for big names like Betsey Ford, and Tommy Hilfiger. Gerren now has her own company called Taylor Made Models, continues to model for both print and runway, and often makes appearances at various fashion shows.

Staci (Season 1-3)

One of the few cast members who was not from the wealthy areas of Baldwin Hills, Staci played the role of the wannabe rich kid always finding herself in the social circles of the upper class. This girl was straight up from the hood, and was proud of it. She definitely created controversy on the show when she became pregnant from an older man. These days there is not much going on in the public eye with Staci. Once the show ended, she pretty much dropped off the face of the earth…a drastic change for someone who was on all three seasons of the show.

Seiko Huffman (Season 2-3)

Known as Staci’s best friend, Seiko joined the cast in season 2 as someone who was also not from a rich family. She’s the daughter of her town’s Sheriff and was also the love interest of cast member Justin. Nowadays, she is most known for following around Chris Brown’s girlfriend Karrueche Tran. Although she herself is an aspiring model and actress, so far she’s only been seen riding the coattails of Tran and Breezy.

Ashley Calloway (Season 1-2)

As the daughter of actress Vanessa Bell Calloway, Ashley was the perfect image of a young teenaged girl growing up in wealthy family.  She would even sometimes be seen hanging out with her celebrity aunties Vivica A. Fox, Star Jones and Lela Rochon. After she left the show, she attended Spelman University and was even the president of her sorority, Alpha Kappa Alpha. She recently graduated in July and is currently working at the corporate office for Delta Airlines.

Justin Walker (Season 2-3)

By season two, the show included a more economically diverse cast, including Justin, the single father who had served jail time. Justin is probably considered one of the most successful of the cast members so far. Having already written “Damaged” by Danity Kane while he was on the show, Justin is now currently songwriting Sony ATV Publishing.  He’s definitely grown into a fine young man, recently gracing the cover of Brave magazine.

Lor’Rena Dejurnett (Season 2)

This next cast member was only on the show for one season, but man did she make an impact in that one season! She sure knew how to bring the drama, as she had no problem stirring up trouble with Gerren over Moriah. She graduated from high school after her one season and went on to become a track and field athlete at her college Ole Miss. She recently did an interview on YouTube where she describes what life is like for her at Ole Miss. Based on the interview, her life there doesn’t seem that great. She also revealed that she would be open to doing Reality TV again.

Sal (Season 1-2)

Also originally from the hood was aspiring rapper Sal, Staci’s best friend who struggled with keeping it real as he lived with his wealthy uncle. According to his twitter, he is still making music. However, no music has recently been released to the public or on any of his social media accounts. He claims that he is now spending more time working behind the scenes in not just music, but also in television and sports.

    I lived in Tuskegee near the university write around the corner i see moriah all the time well he has graduated I think now but we saw him some years ago he doesn’t even get treated like a celebrity I don’t even think most people know who he is but he is pretty good at basketball though.I was in high school at the time so i never met him personally but I did come face to face with him quite naturally he never noticed me

  • Keiana

    New update Madame noire. Gerren has a baby now.

  • SouljaSociety

    Man I used to love Baldwin Hills back in the day, that was my show!
    No update on Garnette though? She’s so beautiful, I used to have a crush on her.. I can’t find any info on her…..

    As far as Garren I’m following her on instagram…. That Seiko chick is friends with Karreuche (sp), aka Chris Browns side piece.

  • Erick Watler

    it’s nice to see what the cast has been doing


  • You all left out quite a few people.

  • Nicole N.

    And what do you mean “played the role”? I’m from D.C. where I grew up and still live in a upper middle class-highclass environment. No, most black people don’t but when and if a black person is poor or less fortunate and publicly is acting it out by begging, hating, or being envious it’s probably not acting it’s probably real. I hate always having to defend being a more privileged black girl. Everyone is different the show should have stayed on but so many black peole said it was fake and scripted just because they didn’t live like them. When the poor blacks are out naming their kids “Boomquesha” and “Larenteez” and being happily unmarried having sex and having babies. The richer ones aren’t always saying it’s “fake and scripted” it’s your way of life. Statistics show that Mississippi is 37% black and New York 15% black. Of course as a race we are divided, rich and poor, light and dark, straight hair or natural hair, north or south, east or west. Get over it, and another thing Harlem Heights should still be on also. Damn hating blacks.

      I’m talking about the Stacy comment on page 4 of this article.

  • OlayinkaFab

    Good lord Madam Noire, Spelman is NOT a university!!! How do you people not know that!!!????? Spelman COLLEGE!! Every black person in America should know that by now!

  • OlayinkaFab

  • Taunya73

    DAMN Justin!

  • Taunya73

    so many unanswered questions about Staci


      Mitrice a.k.a.(Stacey) watch her Dateline ep.which aired 11-19-12

  • Taunya73

    Looks as though Gerren might have had a nose job.

  • What about the group Fatty Koo?!

  • anonymous

    It’s definitely Spelman College, not University.

  • mrs.j.cole

    they should do one for all of the college hill ones

  • Mel

    You guys are right, Moriah and that Justin dude are VERY good looking men. But, since everybodys talking about College Hill, Israel is the best looking dude I think I’ve ever seen on BET.

    The only CH I don’t think they did a reunion for was the one in Fla? The one that had that loud, hateful gay guy and the White Jamaican.

  • Faebae

    What happened to the guy that was promoting parties and wanted to be diddy???????? I forgot his name. And what happen to the girl that looked like omarosa?

  • Baddvixentype

    the show was horrible but justin was and still is beyond FINE!

  • Gerren looks waaay older than she actually is, SMH.

  • Jud Jud

    I used to love this show …im glad to see that Ashley is doing very well 🙂 and Justin looks sooooo good as always 😉

  • Rachel

    smdh, Spelman College Madame Noire! Spelman only offers Bachelor’s degrees! Furthermore, Spelman has graduation in May, not July. As an alumna this really angered me. However, I am proud that my Spelman Sister did well.

    • Kayo

      I wonder why you were given thumbs down for providing factual information.

  • breezy

    Great article. I also agree, could you please do an update list of college hill. Esp. the atl cast, and the south beach cast

  • olivia

    I hated Lo’rena…

  • grilinterrupted

    Madame Noire, how is Justin the most seccesful because he’s writting songs??? The Calloway girl graudated from college, was president of her sorority and now works for corporate America. Smh to what we as ppl consider success.

    • Yaya

      Thousands of people work in corporate America, even more have held office in a club or sorority. But only a few people have written hit records. But I agree, they are both doing well. And both are successful.

  • Kayo

    This show was horribly scripted.

  • Korey

    What about Garnet? And the kid that wanted to be the next Diddy?

  • Bella

    Has Seiko been lying on the sunbeds since the show finished? I don’t recognise her in that pic at all. I’m so proud of Ashley, though.

  • a bunch of wannabe’s…should’ve did one on college hill

  • crazisexicool

    Spelman College not University…it’s called Google.

    • Taya

      Who cares?!?! It’s all about Howard University! H.U.!!! (Just joking, I have much respect for Spelman, even though I’m a proud Bison.) :=)

  • classy800

    I didn’t think the show would last but it was interesting to see a show about that area. I grew up in View Park which is the same kind of neighborhood and literally one minute away. My dad was a minister and the church parsonage was in View Park or else we could not have afforded to live in that area. Funny thing is the hood is also literally one minute away. Interesting mix of black people. Some snooty, some nice, some ghetto. Either way, I love us.

    • Calikush

      Dang, my mother in law live in View Park on Buckler, right down the street from good ol’

      • Calikush

        I meant good ol’ Yee’s Chinese food! It’s nice in that area!

  • helado31

    Gerren had haters? Oh please. She was just on last season’s Bad Girls Club coming off of the party bus with Pleasure P and Flo Rida looking like somebody left her at a corner. Smh. lol

    • Porsche Johnson

      I thought that was her!!

  • I loved this show, & being that im frm LA,cali Im very familar with the Bawldwin hills area & also the ” Jungles” where stacie is frm. Its alot of different families that live in both areas. Its just not all african americans its a mix of blks hispanics koreans and whites. Gerren I always knew she would stay thinking shes too cute for the “norms” but she got her match with the other girl who also had a thing for moriah

  • oooothisbiishshakingthetable

    Gerren chases after alot of NBA athletes and industry men and is a little conceited based off her twitter..but still a pretty girl and lawwd that Moriah and Justin boiii fine pieces of specimen

  • Summerbaby

    I wonder what happened to Gerren’s nemesis, the girl with Crohn’s disease who went after Moriah?

    • Porsche Johnson


  • Nope

    I’ve never even heard of this show. Either I’m getting old or my tastes are too uppity.

    • cmh1978

      nope you just don’t have cable

      • realadulttalk


      • Na Na


  • currvalicious

    Thanks for the update, I always wanted to know what happened w/them.

  • Reese

    I barely remember this show, it never interested me. I just couldn’t get into it, the sames goes for Laguna Beach.

    • jasmine

      You are not the long ranger I couldn’t get into neither of the shows you mentioned.I tried to like Baldwin Hills but, it could never click with me.

  • gracie

    I loved stacy……

  • Britney

    Spelman College ma’am.

  • Virgos Very Own

    I use to love the show! They need to bring it back

  • Gerren has on a lot of makeup in that last pic, but she’s still a pretty girl! I wanted to know more about Staci & her baby though… Justin though, YES YES!! LOL.. I thought Vanessa Bell Calloway’s son was on there, never knew her daughter was, guess I missed that season

    • browniekk

      Sheryl Lee Ralph’s son was on the show, not VBC.

      • YUP! Sure was.. that’s who I was thinking of! Thanks!

    • guest510

      I think Stacis’s baby didn’t make it. I believe she miscarried or he was stillborn. I remember Gerren talking with her about it, saying maybe it wasn’t in God’s plan for her at that time

  • Moriah is fine as hell damn!!

  • entyce

    Do one on the cast of College Hill. The one where they went to the islands.

    • allie1234

      me too. They never had a reunion show for that season.

      • Summerbaby

        They had a reunion. I remember the island girl who got kicked out after fighting, and the other girl from the states, not the bourgeois one, were both preggo at the reunion. Willie wanted to be a comedian and the other guy from Cali was still rapping. I don’t remember much about anyone else though.

        • Teeknowshershow

          Thats college hill you talking about

          • Yeah they said that they wanted an article about College Hill.

    • LuLu

      They need to do one for the 1st season of College Hill when they went to Southern U. They fell off the face of the earth.
