Is there any reason not to start getting excited? #SOHHWhatchaThink?

2. Meet The Crew

Are you ready for a new season of “Love & Hip Hop” featuring a slew of new cast members? Rap-Up is on it:

“Love & Hip Hop” is going Hollywood. VH1 has called on some familiar faces for the latest installment of its popular franchise.

The series will follow a new cast of celebrities and musicians including Ray J, Soulja Boy, Omarion, Lil Fizz, and Teairra Mari.

Ray J will explore his relationship with best friend and executive assistant Morgan Hardman, while cameras follow Soulja Boy and his girlfriend Nia Riley, the daughter of Teddy Riley.

New dad Omarion prepares to start a family with backup vocalist Apryl Jones, while his former B2K bandmate Lil Fizz thinks about settling down with his lover Amanda Secor. (Rap-Up)

Could we really see Omarion, Soulja Boy, Yung Berg and more really bonding on the small screen? #SOHHWhatchaThink?

3. Another Challenge

Rita Ora has just taken the Ice Bucket Challenge and the still shot is pretty amazing. RumorFix has the shot:

As far as I’m concerned, The ALS Ice Bucket Challenge never gets old, except the people who keep nominating — there are now of them!

Anyway, British singer Rita Ora joined the fun on the streets of New York City. And the “I Will Never Let You Down” singer didn’t let us down with her reaction.

The ALS challenge involves people dousing themselves with buckets of ice water posting it on social media then challenging others to do the same. If you don’t accept the challenge within 24 hours, you are supposed to donate to ALS, known as theLou Gehrig’s disease. (RumorFix)

What celebrity are you still waiting for in this challenge? Is there anyone who will refuse to do it? #SOHHWhatchaThink?

That about wraps it up for today. This is SOHH On The Spot giving you the morning scoop from your favorite gossip sites.

Masterful Monday. It’s a day to feel mastered, so why not get things rolling with Kim Kardashian pulling off an Allen Iverson? Speaking of balling, is J.

1. Throwback

Could cornrows be making a comeback? If so, is Kim Kardashian the one we should be thanking? TooFab has the scoop:

What happened to Kim Kardashian’s hair?!?

The reality TV star shocked fans by posting photos of her with cornrows over the weekend on Instagram — but no, she didn’t actually go through with the surprising look.

On Sunday night’s “Keeping Up with the Kardashians” we learned that the Alicia Keys-inspired braids were only one of the many looks Kim sported for a new ad campaign for HYPE Energy Drink.

The photo shoot involved Kim not only wearing some very revealing outfits — including the one above, the black leather dominatrix-looking one below and costumes modeled after Marie Antoinette and Audrey Hepburn. (TooFab)

Should Kim K consider this? Cornrows have been on the steady decline for a while and even though Kim only did this for a campaign, could people buy into the look again? #SOHHWhatchaThink?

2. It’s A Cole, Cole, World

Since last week, there has been a tremendous amount of support for the Mike Brown campaign. The teenager’s shocking shooting by a police officer has created a lot of tension in the Midwest and throughout the nation. Cole went from doing a tribute song to heading out to Missouri. Complex has the info:

Cole first stopped by the scene where Brown was killed and spoke to protestors and other activists about the civil unrest taking place in Ferguson. He then made his way through the community and stopped at the QuikTrip gas station, which has been a major scene of attention in Ferguson since the incident last week. Cole was accompanied by members of his Dreamville label as he spoke with activists and citizens in the community throughout the day. Video of Cole speaking at the QuikTrip can be seen above. Additional images and footage are below, including ones from our own Complex team, who have been their since last Thursday. (Complex)

How will justice be served in this case? Is firing the police officer responsible for taking Mike Brown’s life enough? What will it take? #SOHHWhatchaThink?

3. HeHe For RiRi

Are we going to see Rihanna and Eminem hooking up anytime soon? We’ve always wondered if they had a little fling going on but now things are getting a bit more intense. RumorFix has the info:

Is Rihanna sending-out racy messages to Eminem?

The pair have been performing together to sold-out crowds at the MetLife Stadium in New York as part of their Monster Tour.

And on Sunday Rihanna released a racy touching herself image with “Shady” written across it — which of course is one of the rapper’s nick-names.

Rihanna’s sexy Twitter panty-image was captioned: “School. kills.”

The pair are of course proving to be very good for one another’s careers — both ‘Love The Way You Lie” and ‘The Monster’ have been Billboard Hot 100 number one hits spinning off the current tour.

Although there has been no hard evidence that the pair have been dating stranger things have happened, right? (RumorFix)

Uh-oh. Should we start looking at these two a little more closesly? #SOHHWhatchaThink?

That about wraps it up for today. This is SOHH On The Spot giving you the morning scoop from your favorite gossip sites.
