“They Shot Me Down Because I Was On ‘Love and Hip Hop.’” Karlie Redd Says Tyler Perry Rejected Her For Movie Role
Apparently, Mr. Perry wants no parts of the foolishness. LHHATL cast member Karlie Redd hoped the reality show would get her some exposure in Hollywood and hopefully open up some opportunities for acting. But it doesn’t appear that things are going so smoothly.
During a recent interview with D.C.’s 93.9, Redd revealed she auditioned for a role in a Tyler Perry film, but they shot her dreams of the big screen all the way down when they found out she appeared on the VH1 hit show:
“I went for a role for a Tyler Perry film and they shot me down because I was on ‘Love and Hip Hop.’
“They said that to me.”
Redd also disclosed that this wouldn’t be the first time she’s lost out on a role due to the show’s reputation:
“There’s been roles that I auditioned for and then they found out…literally I’m on my way to set to work, got the role and everything and then they find out I’m on the show and then they’re like, ‘Uh, no.’”
Besides my suspicion of any actual acting talent on Redd’s behalf, what do these women really think is going to happen post “Love and Hip-Hop”? Do they really see themselves starring opposite Don Cheadle or Viola Davis in the future? I’m no one to dismiss anyone’s dreams, but reputation is everything and I can’t seem to understand how these video vixens and reality stars expect to get taken seriously when their pasts are filled with booty-spreads on World Star Hip Hop and reunion shows where they are beating one another in the head with Valentino pumps. Jesus, be a reality check.
Stranger things have happened. I mean after all, Perry did cast Kim Kardashian in a role. But it just goes to show the easy path to publicity can be very short-term. Well at least she has that promising singing career to fall back on.
Check out video of Karlie’s interview:
Earlier this week, news broke that “Love & Hip Hop Atlanta” star Jasiel “Yung Joc” Robinson’s wife, Alexandria, filed for divorce. Naturally, the filing was a shock because not a lot of people realized that the rapper-turned-reality-star was married. According to TMZ, Alexandria cited adultery as grounds for her divorce filing. Considering that we’ve seen Joc boo’d up with Karlie Redd this season, most assumed that she had something to do with the couple’s demise. However, that may be a rather hasty assumption.
In her filing Alexandria acknowledges that she and Jasiel have been separated since February 2012. “Love & Hip Hop Atlanta” season one didn’t even premiere until June 2012 and Joc didn’t appear on the series with Karlie until 2014. Jasiel and Alexandria were high school sweethearts and have been legally married for 13 years. But their relationship appears to be stained with a bit of drama. Back in 2012, V-103 reported that a man by the name of Milton Winckler came forward insisting that he believed that he was the father of the couple’s then 9-year-old daughter.
Interestingly, a source close to the situation claimed that the only reason that Joc married Alexandria was because she was pregnant with their daughter. According to reports, a paternity test was performed, but the results were never publicly revealed. What’s even more interesting is that this report came out just one month after Alexandria says that they separated.
“Yes, I have always known about my daughter,” Winckler said in a letter to Mommy’s Dirty Little Secret. ‘Every time I would approach Alex, she always said ‘her daddy’s name is Joc.’ The last time I contacted her via text, she told me to ‘Contact her attorney Dana Davis’ and furnished me with the number as well.
I didn’t want to broadcast this on a media circuit because I want to protect my daughter. This is the type of nonsense that discourages fathers to step up. I guess I needed to maintain celebrity status and have a certain number of zeroes in my account to be apart of my daughters life!”
It’s unclear what became of that situation. Alexandria is requesting spousal and child support, by the way. We imagine that this is going to be one messy divorce!

During this week’s episode of “Love & Hip Hop Atanta,” Karlie Redd learned that her newfound beau, Young Joc, had been secretly carrying on a relationship with a friend and business associate. In typical “Love & Hip Hop” fashion, the second the woman admitted to sleeping with Joc, a fight ensued. Karlie recently stopped by Atlanta’s V-103, where she discussed the betrayal.
“These sidechicks, they got roles. These sidechicks got roles these days,” the reality star told Tigger. “She’s the help to the ultimate level. She drove us to Birmingham, Alabama for my booking one time, she helped style me for his video and she was like why not do something on the side to him.”
Karlie adds that she wasn’t exactly shocked to learn that her boo had been sleeping around.
“Women’s intuition is something else,” she said. “I knew,that’s why I was trying play it off with the whole Jeremih thing. I knew what he was doing, I had a feeling about it. How I react is what you gotta see on next week’s episode.
She wouldn’t comment on whether or not her and Joc are still together after that whole fiasco, but she did say that viewers can get the answer to that question if they continue to tune in.
“But as you can see with that sidechick, I’m not having it.”
As for the criticism she has received regarding how she behaves in relationships, Karlie says:
“Karlie Redd is always about her business as you can see with the cosmetic line, hair line, I’m always about my business. At the end of the day, I want to be in love just like every woman. We want to walk down the aisle.”
Watch her interview below. Thoughts?
For nearly two years, Love and Hip-Hop Atlanta has brought us the rachet drama we can’t help but love and loathe. To celebrate the show’s third season (which kicked off last week) we’re taking a look back at 15 of the biggest scandals to come out of the Atlanta franchise… so far.
Mimi and Nikko’s Sex Tape
Last month Mimi and Nikko devised a whole new use for shower rods in a sex tape salaciously titled Mimi and Nikko: Scandal in Atlanta.
Tonight it’s going down on VH1, and by it we mean the return of “Love & Hip-Hop Atlanta.” We already know half of the drama to expect on the reality show thanks to Mimi and Nikko, but it seems Karlie Redd and her flavor of the season, Yung Joc, will prove to be quite the entertaining pair as well.
Though we initially had our doubts about Joc’s motives for joining the show, when he stopped by the office he assured us Karlie Redd didn’t pressure him to be on the show. Actually, he decided he didn’t want to be the secret man she was referring to while the cameras were rolling (a la Kim’s big poppa and Kenya’s African tycoon on ATL’s other hot show, “Real Houswives of Atlanta”), which we can understand. Nevertheless, we still had a few questions about their “relationship,” like is Joc cheating on her, which the previews suggest is a big “Yes!,” and how does Joc’s ex-wife feel about their relationship and his foray into reality TV?
Thankfully, Yung Joc was a complete open book — make that a flirtatious open book — so we have all the answers to the above questions and more. Watch the video above and tell us what you think. For Joc’s thoughts on Mimi’s sex tape, click the link here.
If you didn’t know it was about to go down on “Love & Hip-Hop Atlanta,” now you do. Atlanta rapper Yung Joc has resurfaced and announced that he will be joining VH1′s ever-ratchet cast next season, and to make things all the more interesting, he’ll be participating with his, ahem, girlfriend Karlie Redd.
Can we just say Karlie Redd must either be related to someone on the LHHATL production team or know some dirty secrets for her weak storylines to continue to be extended? And though we haven’t seen Joc since about 2009, we’re kinda disappointed he’s about to return on a “reality” show with this farse of a relationship. Of course, though, the soon-to-be 31-year-old swears up and down that he and Karlie are the real deal. When asked by Bossip what he loves most about his boo thang, he said:
“The best thing about Karlie Redd is I like the fact that she’s a little throwed off and will jump off a building for me.”
Hmmm. Is that right?
As far as his decision to appear on LHHATL with Karlie and her suspect behavior in the past, he explained:
“By joining season 3 of Love & Hip Hop it allows people to see how Joc would handle some every day sh!t….Just because you’re on a reality show doesn’t mean it’s the best fit for you.
Just because cameras are on her (Karlie Redd) — as an actress, she’s a great actress I’ll give her that hands down — but when cameras are on you and you’re forced to handle a decision that could be detrimental to how people view you, I don’t know if she’s the best candidate for handling that in front of a camera sometimes because I’ve seen her handle situations off the camera more professional. That’s why I had to have these meetings because people were like, ‘you don’t want to go in there and your girl start trippin’ on you, how you gone handle it?’ so when we started having real-life situations I was like this ain’t how you handle it on TV and that made it a lot easier to say, I’ll accept the challenge of joining ‘Love & Hip-Hop Atlanta’ season 3.”
Check out more of this talk in the video below, as well as Joc’s explanation for his new single “I Got B!tches,” which he swears up and down is meant as a term of endearment and why people who say Karlie Redd can’t sing are just haters.
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.
