Fans of VH1’s “Love & Hip Hop” franchise may not be getting a Houston spinoff after all. New reports have surfaced that the reality show has been canceled.
According to the blog Love & Hip Hop Tea, VH1 didn’t give the green light to “Love & Hip Hop: Houston.” It was previously reported that the show, along with “Love & Hip Hop: Miami,” were supposed to premiere this year. The outlet reported that the Miami version of the series is still filming and will most likely air next year. International Business Times reached out to a rep for VH1 about the cancellation rumor, but the network has not yet responded.
Although VH1 never confirmed plans to air “Love & Hip Hop: Houston,” the show repeatedly made headlines due to reports of fighting amongst the cast. In June, the Jasmine Brand reported that things allegedly turned violent between singer Just Brittany and former “Love & Hip Hop: New York” star Jhonni Blaze while they were filming at a Houston nightclub.
During an interview with the blog News With Attitude, Brittany dismissed rumors that “Love & Hip Hop: Houston” had been canceled because of the fight. “Y’all will just have to stay tuned and see what happens,” she told the outlet, adding: “As far as women go, united we stand, but divided we fall.”
Brittany also hinted that she and Jhonni had squashed their beef by posting an Instagram photo of them together. “At the end of the day boss women have the last say! Always 100 @therealjhonniblazeduh,” she wrote in the caption.
It was first reported that the “Love & Hip Hop” franchise was expanding to Houston and Miami last February when sources told TMZ that producers were auditioning people in both cities in hopes of nailing down a cast. At the time, “Basketball Wives: LA” star Mehgan James, rappers Kirko Bangz and Propain, producer and rapper J. Prince Jr., rap duo the Sauce Twins, DJ Eric, promoter Lil Keith and boxers the Charlo Twins were speculated to star.
Currently, “Love & Hip Hop: Hollywood” Season 3 is airing. Season 7 of “Love & Hip Hop: New York” is set to premiere later this month.
