Joseline Hernandez and Stevie J have been the undisputed stars of “Love & Hip Hop Atlanta” ever since the show’s debut years ago and since then they’ve gone from being just reality TV stars to pop culture icons. Now, it looks like the two are growing beyond the limits of “LHHA” because it’s been revealed that the dramatic couple are getting their own reality spin-off.
According to Variety, the series doesn’t have a title yet but cameras will follow Stevie and Hernandez as they move to Hollywood to expand their entertainment empire.
As expected, the show will be produced by “LHHA” creator Mona Scott-Young and her Monami production company.
“In a summer where the film Straight Outta Compton went straight to No. 1, Taylor Swift’s collaboration with Kendrick Lamar topped the Billboard charts and our own ‘Love & Hip Hop: Atlanta’ ranked as the No. 1 reality show on cable, hip-hop’s dominance of pop culture was confirmed yet again,” said Susan Levison, VH1’s EVP of original programming and production. “We’re excited to fuel our audience’s continued fascination with all things hip-hop by extending the storylines of some of their favorite ‘Love & Hip Hop’ cast members.”
Well, congratulations to Stevie and Hernandez. We would say their spin-off will likely be less dramatic now that they won’t be around their “LHHA” cast mates, but considering how volatile and dramatic their personal relationship is, this series will likely still be explosive.
