West Coast rapper Game could be the prayer Vh1 executives need answered after hinting at possible plans to join its speculated “Love & Hip Hop: Los Angeles” reality television show.
Although brief with details, the former G-Unit member revealed business talks had started over the weekend.
“Business meeting with @MonaScottYoung @leauxsteez & the team…… Please do be scared !!!!!!!!!! #LHHLA,” Game tweeted, referencing Love & Hip Hop: Los Angeles. (Game’s Instagram)
Reports last week claimed R&B singer Ray J had turned down appearing on the pitched reality show.
“Love & Hip Hop” is moving to L.A. for its new spin-off — with episodes expected to start shooting later this month — but producers are now facing a HUGE problem … they can’t find a big name to star on it. Sources close to production tell us, they initially planned to attach Ray J as the headliner, but he’s currently tied up hosting “Bad Girls Club All-Stars” on Oxygen so he couldn’t sign on. (TMZ)
A few key cast members, including musicians Brooke Valentine and Hazel-E, were also revealed.
Now we’re told producers are scrambling to find someone else, but it’s proving more difficult than they anticipated … which is somewhat surprising, considering “Love & Hip Hop” is one of VH1’s highest-rated shows. According to sources, producers will start by shooting story lines for the smaller stars who have already signed on, including singer Brooke Valentine, radio DJ Yesi Ortiz, rapper Hazel-E, and video vixen Bria Myles. We’re told producers have decided to worry about the bigger stars later. (TMZ)
Back in 2012, Game talked about his fiancée’s persistence for doing a reality show.
Regardless, Game said his 37-year-old fiancée “found the heads of VH1 and started taking her own meetings” to forge ahead with the reality show, a move he’s concerned about since he’s worked to keep his relationship out of the glare of media and public opinion. “I kept her away because I didn’t want her in the light because I felt it could harm or hurt her,” he admitted. “And she wasn’t ready. It’s a lot to deal with. And then on the other hand, I was trying to keep it player.” (ABC News Radio)
