The VH1 docu-soap series “Love and Hip Hop Hollywood” is currently filming its second season, but a newcomer to the cast is already bothered by how his fellow cast mates are treating him.
According to TMZ, new cast member Milan Christopher is said be upset by the fact that some of his fellow singer and rapper cast members feel uncomfortable shooting scenes with him because he’s homosexual.
Despite the show being called “Love and Hip Hop,” Christopher is known much more for his writing than rapping skills. Christopher is also a model, and there there are several images of Christopher sitting on a bed with little to no clothing on that have been floating around the Internet for a while.
The other rappers who are on “Hollywood” include Brandy’s brother Ray J, Omarion, Mally Mall, and Soulja Boy. And despite the fact that Christopher may feel ostracized due to his sexual orientation, it’s believed through TMZ sources that the real problem the other cast members have with Christopher is his lack of a respectable track record in music.
While it’s not certain how many of the cast think this way, or specifically who of the big four may share this attitude, it seems that Christopher is getting exiled because it’s believed his casting was a ratings stunt to get more eyeballs on the second season of “Love and Hip Hop Hollywood.”
“Love and Hip Hop Hollywood” is yet another spin-off of the popular and very successful cable series “Love and Hip Hop.” What once began as a series that followed the likes of Jim Jones and Chrissy Lampkin has ballooned into a franchise smash for VH1.
The biggest spin-off is no doubt “Love and Hip Hop Atlanta,” where personalities like Stevie J, Joseline Hernandez, Mimi Faust, and Lil’ Scrappy dominate television screens every Monday night. The “Atlanta” series is now currently airing on VH1 and is in its fourth season.
“Love and Hip Hop Hollywood,” by contrast, features fairly well known artists like Ray J and Soulja Boy. The first season mainly dealt with singer Teairra Mari’s desire to resurrect her career while also dealing with the fallout between her and Ray J’s broken relationship.
A lot of the show’s drama centered around Mari’s volatile personality, as well as the pain of the unresolved issues she still carried around thanks to how her relationship with Ray J ended.
Teairra Mari had a handful of very brief appearances on the original “Love and Hip Hop,” but returned in 2014 for a starring role in the “Hollywood” spin-off.
“Love and Hip Hop Hollywood” is currently being filmed in California and will likely air in the early portion of 2016.
