Mona Scott-Young, the woman behind the “Love & Hip Hop” series on VH1, has confirmed that fans are getting another show, set in a new city. Currently, the show has three franchises — New York, Atlanta and Hollywood — but lately it’s been rumored Scott-Young and her team have been eyeing Houston, Miami and New Orleans as possible new additions.
“I will say that I am looking at another city,” Scott-Young said during an appearance on Essence Live Friday. “My partners and I and the network are looking at another city.”
Scott-Young then gave a shout-out to New Orleans, saying she has been interested in doing a show there, but said it might not be related to “Love & Hip Hop.”
“But I do wanna do something there,” she said. “But there will be another city, I can confirm that, but you’ll have to tune in and wait.”
TMZ this week reported “Love & Hip Hop” producers were auditioning people in Houston and Miami to possibly appear on the rumored new series. Sources told the outlet that producers want to have the cast figured out by April, so one of the shows could premiere by late summer. It’s believed that the cast for both shows will include well-known stars, as well as people connected to each city’s nightlife.
Shortly before TMZ’s report, the Shade Room posted “Love & Hip Hop” had supposedly already started filming in New Orleans. The outlet claimed the cast would include rapper Mystikal and social media personalities Cheeky Blakk, SupaCent, Sissy Nobby, Trelly, TokyoxVanity and 10thWardBuck. Several of the rumored cast members took to social media to hint at the new series, telling fans where scenes were being filmed. However, those posts have since been taken down.
“Love & Hip Hop: New York” is currently airing and wraps its sixth season in a few weeks.
