Last week we told you industry whispers have been implying that Ray J and his “friend” R&B singer Teairra Mari were being courted by VH1 to star in a Los Angeles-based Love & Hip Hop spin-off. While Ray and Teairra’s casting has yet to be officially confirmed, insiders claim that Love & Hip Hop visionary Mona Scott-Young is definitely opening up the franchise to LA, as well as New Orleans and Houston.
“Yes we are casting in LA as well as Houston & New Orleans. We are talking to a lot of great prospects and are very excited about the potential cast in all 3 cities. No final decisions have been made on cast or next city,” one source told The YBF.
The expansion has yet to be officially confirmed by Mona or VH1, but the hip hop mogul has been pretty vocal about her desire to open up the franchise to new cities in the past.
“I’m always kind of looking at other cities. In between seasons I’m always looking to see kind of where we should move next,” she said back in April.
One can only imagine all of the new personalities that await in these new cities. As always, we’ll continue to keep you posted as this story develops.
Are there any celebs you’d like to see starring in the new Love & Hip Hop spin-offs?
