Keyshia Cole Is Heading To “Love And Hip Hop Hollywood” And Bringing Estranged Husband With Her
Say whatever you will about Keyshia Cole’s music, but I think we can all agree that Cole’s reality shows, particularly The Way It Is on BET, have always been very entertaining. Her personal life, specifically her family and relationship with her now estranged husband Daniel “Boobie” Gibson, consistently leave people talking. With that being said, it makes sense that she would head back to reality television.
She initially claimed in an interview with The Breakfast Club in February that she wasn’t interested in doing Love and Hip Hop Hollywood. She even said that she “didn’t like the energy of it all,” especially the energy from fans once they heard rumblings of her joining the cast.
“Mona reached out to me a few times and was just asking if I would be willing to do it,” she said. “I think it’s a great platform for artists if you do it right, I wouldn’t want to be in all the crazy stuff.”
Well, the star has had a change of heart (and obviously been offered more change to do it). Cole confirmed on Twitter early this week that she will indeed star on Mona Scott Young’s hit show.
According to Cole, filming begins next week and the season will premiere in June. Aside from the money and the possible platform to share new music, we’re wondering if her BFF, Remy Ma, had something to do with her choice to associate with the controversial series. Remy is the star of the New York installment and, for the most part, has managed to avoid petty drama while sharing the ins and outs of her family life. Cole isn’t new to the reality rodeo, though. This will be her third time doing a reality series and she will likely have more control than people think of her image on the show. At least, we hope that will be the case. Either way though, according to The Jasmine Brand, Cole will be bringing Gibson along for the ride, as well as her stylist. She’s also started hanging out with cast members Nia Riley and Moniece Slaughter, so things should be interesting…
What do you think of Cole’s decision to join the cast of the Hollywood spinoff of Love and Hip Hop?
