There’s more than one way to break into the entertainment industry. These 15 reality TV actors got their start in reality television before developing a legitimate career in acting.
She may have scored in Easy A, but before Emma Stone was an actress playing the lead in a film, the talented redhead was on reality television. Determined to break into show biz, Stone first appeared on the 2004 VH1 reality show “In Search of the New Partridge Family.” Although she won the spot of Laura Partridge, Stone would have to wait a little longer for her turn in the spotlight. The resulting show “The New Partridge Family” never made it past the pilot. Stone went on to grab a Golden Globe nod for Easy A and will reprise her role as Gwen Stacy in The Amazing Spider-Man 2.
‘Non-Instigating’ Arianne Explains Why She Played Karlie Redd’s Diss Track At K. Michelle’s B-Day Party
Beyond needing to ask Arianne about that “sometimes b****es need to be slapped” comment, we also had another major question we wanted the “Love & Hip-Hop Atlanta” sidekick to address: Why does it seem like she’s always starting some mess? There have been more than a couple occasions were Arianne seemed to be instigating drama between her reality TV co-stars, but as we found out in our interview, she doesn’t see it that way. Check out what she had to say.
Turn up time! That’s what we’re pretty sure Stevie said before he stepped out the house in his Miami Vice suit and rained all over Niko and Mimi’s relationship parade. And that was only one of the many crazy things that happened on last night’s episode Of “Love & Hip-Hop Atlanta”. Check out everything that went down on the next few pages.
Surprise Pregnancies And The Insane Che Mack: 9 Ratch Things We Learned While Watching Love And Hip Hop Atlanta Last Night
Another week, another 60 minutes worth of foolery to discuss. Yesterday’s episode of Love and Hip Hop Atlanta was full of surprises. People we forgot about returned, somebody turned up pregnant, somebody else has a new man while another person’s relationship is on the rocks once again. If you missed the episode and want the rundown of what happened, we’ve got you covered!
Just yesterday, one of my coworkers said that she was over Love and Hip Hop Atlanta, that she’d outgrown their foolishness. I was happy for her growth but I’m so not ready to give up the outright train wreck that LHHATL is and that delicious ratchetness it’s brought to my life. Maybe I’ll get there one day but that night certainly wasn’t last night. And I’m glad about it. Check out some of the more ridiculous moments from the episode.
If you saw the super trailer for this season of “Love & Hip-Hop Atlanta,” you might recall an interesting conversation brewing between Karlie Redd and Benzino about a p*rn tape with Joseline. Since all we’ve seen are a few second of the discussion, we had to ask Benzino what all that was about when he came into the office — and more importantly was he Joseline’s leading man. We also needed to know his status with Karlie and what was up with those pics we saw of him and Claudia Jordan getting awfully close earlier this year. Lucky for us — and you — “Zino Grigio” told us everything we wanted to know. Check out what he had to say in the video above.
Did They Or Didn’t They? Reps Offer Conflicting Reports About The Alleged Showdown Between LHHATL’s Erica Dixon And Shay Johnson
Love & Hip Hop: Atlanta Season 2 has yet to debut its first episode, but tons of dramafied tidbits about the cast are being spilled on the regular. The latest insanity to hit the circuit is a rumored fight that is said to have occurred between Erica Dixon and Shay Johnson. While the rumors weren’t really shocking, as any LHHATL head knows that the two are certainly not fans of one another, the outcome of the fight seemed a bit odd.
According to gossip blogger Funkey Dineva, both ladies made an appearance at a salon where their co-star Karlie Redd was hosting a launch party for her new hair weave line. The event was called “Redd Champagne and Weave” (no, that isn’t a joke) and after an exchange of words, the two women got into a physical altercation.
Media Takeout also reported on the fight, claiming that Erica pulled out a blade and slashed Shay in her face. Reps from both camps agree that this never happened. Erica also took to her Instagram account, expressing that she doesn’t need weapons to fight with Shay because her hands are sufficient.
Sources tell Dineva that Erica didn’t pull out a blade on Shay, but they did claim that Shay walked away from the fight bloody and disheveled. They’re also saying that the former Flavor of Love star “lost” the fight and stayed in the bathroom for a long time as the salon’s stylist attempted to salvage what was left of her ruined hairstyle.
Shay and her reps have come forward claiming that no one ruined her face and that the majority of claims circulating about the altercation are actually false. A rep told Hip Hop Gossip Site that the two reality stars did exchange words, but security stepped in before things got out of hand.
On the other hand, Erica’s reps seem to be saying that there was physical altercation and Erica simply did what she had to do.
“Ms. Dixon did defend herself as she was provoked but there were no such things as a blade or other materials that you may have heard [were] involved,” Erica’s reps told RumorFix.
Shay has since released photos of her face in an effort to prove that no harm was done to her.
Meanwhile, on the other side of town, Scrappy was busy rounding up Twitter followers for his pals. *Side-eye*
Chances are Love & Hip Hop:Atlanta cameramen were lurking around when the confrontation occurred, so we’ll more than likely see it all go down in the coming episodes.
Everybody knows the real reason people join the cast of “Love & Hip-Hop” isn’t to launch whatever singing or rapping career they claim to have, they’re looking at dollar signs. The question is, just how much is clowning on TV and telling all your business to $3.5 million viewers every week worth? According to CelebrityNetworth.com, that answer is a pretty penny because some of these reality stars are cashing in big time from the show’s high viewership. Take a look at the estimates some of these stars reportedly earned in 2012.
In the same way that VH1′s hit show “Basketball Wives” doesn’t actually have any wives on the show, the running joke with the network’s other front runner, “Love & Hip-Hop” is that there really isn’t a whole lot of love. But something the show is also missing, at least in Atlanta, is the other portion of that title because after 10 episodes and half of a reunion, I’m still sitting here thinking, where the music at? (poor grammar on purpose)
I realize most people who participated in this craziness did so for a check. But I thought the overall grand master plan was to keep getting checks because the show was putting their names out there and now they actually had a platform for the hip-hop, i.e. the music. Every time K. Michelle comes at Toya, or Rasheeda talks about her independent artist grind, or Scrappy gets ready to put those paws on somebody, everybody reacts like hahahhahaha lololololol ahhhh that was a good one, but where’s the music? Now, I’m thinking the same thing, where’s the music? Like, for real for real.
Backing up a step, there are a couple people whose careers I’m thankful have not gone anywhere because, frankly, they suck, point blank period. Joseline and Karlie Redd were the first artists, term used loosely, to drop singles during this season of LHHATL, but honestly, these are the only two women who I would give a pass to for not doing anything career-wise because at the end of the day, they are not what’s up. I think non-spanish speaking people can understand Joseline’s reggaeton rapping better than her confessionals on TV. And when a Trinidadian who’s over the hump, be it the 30-year, 40-year, or 50-year hump, spits patois in front of Stevie J to prove her lyrical prowess but comes out with a single titled “Louie, Gucci, Prada” to get on, you almost want to say Karlie would have been better off remixing “things that make you go hmmm.”
I know right now somebody is thinking, what about Rasheeda? (Give me a minute) I happen to like Rasheeda (blame it on my fondness for dirty south rap music). I think she has a lane, dirty south boss b***h rap music, and I feel like she does it well. The thing is, she appears to have been in the exact same spot in that lane since her “Bend ova”/ “Bubblegum” days — songs I can remember bumping at college parties back somewhere between 2003-2007. After listening to her interview with Kirk on The Breakfast Club yesterday, I do think the couple knows what they’re doing as far as having a comfortable lifestyle, but despite being on this show and dropping the “Marry Me” single and video within that time frame, it doesn’t appear Rasheeda has picked up any more buzz than she already had in the south. That, my friends, is a problem. there’s no point in doing all that so-called grinding just to be in the same spot. I’m not trying to say Kirk sucks but I bet Wacka Flocka’s mama would’ve known how to make it happen. (shade)
You know how couples who were so happy in love suddenly make it seem like everything about their relationship was wrong after they break up? That’s the card Karlie Redd is playing right now.
Though Benzino broke down the 3-month timeline of their relationship on The Breakfast Club (and declined to say anything bad about her), anyone who watched “Love & Hip-Hop Atlanta” still didn’t understand how the two met, moved in together, and almost got engaged within that short period of time. Eventually, Karlie said Benzino’s temper did him ias far as their relationship goes, but now she claims the former Source exec did more than raise his voice every now and then. Let her tell it, he was creeping on her as well.
“Benzino was cheating on me from day one,” she told the Morning Riot when they asked her why she was pushing up on Roscoe Dash so quickly in that finale episode. She went on to say she and Roscoe are just flirtatious friends and that she’s known him longer than Benzino, but when it comes to the Hip Hop vet, she claims he was doing a lot more than just flirting with other women.
“When Benzino said he wasn’t ready that night [that he pulled out the ring], he wasn’t ready because I’m not going to marry someone who I know was blatantly cheating on me from day one. I caught him at his house. I opened up the door and there was a girl naked in his room and my clothes were still in the closet and everything.”
This may be mean, but I’m actually more surprised 47-year-old Benzino can still pull all these women to actually cheat on someone. I also feel like if Benzino really was cheating on Karlie then she would have brought that up in their little heart-to-heart over the ring rather than just talking about his anger issues. I definitely don’t put it past Benny but the timing on this is a little convenient with Karlie trying to downplay her Roscoe Dash shenanigans.
Listen to the interview here, as the hosts clown Karlie a bit about her age and her relationship with Benzino. What do you think about these two?
