Last month, Olivia spoke with SOHH about joining forces with new manager, Rich Dollaz.
"He's a character" Olivia told SOHH with a smile. "I love Rich, I'm glad we teamed up. We probably met, I wanna say six or seven months ago. And it feels like I've known him my whole life. So it's a great connection with the both of us, we work very well, I don't have to tell him what I need done, like, he'll call me and be on top of it all the time with like interviews and whatever. Most managers don't talk to their artists on a daily basis and he does that, which is really good." (SOHH)
She is also currently putting together a new reality television show.
"I can't give you no scoop, but right now it's four labels vying for my attention," she said in an interview. "I got a lot big things in the works and I haven't touched on my Vh1 show. I can't talk too much about that, but the girl will be on fire this summer. I'm about to be shutting a lot of people down, I'm excited. I just gave you the best insight, I told you it was on Vh1. [Laughs] You probably thought I was going to be on the Food Network channel or something. Nah, I can't tell you [more details than] that, I'm under contract. [Laughs]" (Hip Hop DX)
