First came the rumors that they are expanding the “Love & Hip Hop” franchise, and now swirling rumors are claiming that Chris Brown‘s
ex-girlfriend Karrueche Tran is joining the L.A cast along with some very famous faces.
In an email leaked to Sandra Rose supposedly revealed Mona Scott-Young‘s casting plans, says that she’s already booked several famous faces for the west coast spinoff and currently in talks with R&B singer Ray J to produce the show.
According to RealityTEA:
Mona already cast Tyga and Blac China, along with “Miss Joie (Bow Wow’s baby mama), Karrueche Tran, Lola Monore (Wiz Khalifa’s former artist), Jasmine Sanders (Chris Brown’s and Young Jeezy’s ex girlfriend), and Jas Prince (Christina Milian’s boyfriend).” Um… wow!
The network is deciding which location to “greenlight” and if the LA franchise is chosen by Mona and Co., Ray-J will be co-producing the series along with starring it in. Added to the cast will be Yung Berg, his protoge, and a major storyline will be drama between his two ‘ladies’, Teairra Marie (a L&HH extra already) and Princess Love (a former fling of Floyd Mayweather).
The leaked “Love & Hip Hop: LA” plans now has Mona on edge as she allegedly threatened to fire staffers after someone broke their confidential agreement.
Mona threatened that if she finds out who leaked the potential cast she will fire them because they all signed a confidentiality contract. The reason for Mona’s anger was because she was trying to work things out with a few of the potential cast members like Karrueche who was interested in the show if she could promote her “The Kill” line, but had not discussed the proposal with Chris yet. Needless to say Chris was not happy when he got word via the internet that Karrueche was in talks to possibly join the show without talking it over with him first. And Karrueche didn’t know Chris ex Jasmine Sanders was in talks to be on the show either.
Mona was also upset because Ray-J is locked into a contract with Oxygen doing their “Bad Girls Club Battle” and the only way he would be able to get around his contract with Oxygen was if he went on Love & Hip-Hop LA as a co-producer. Oxygen got word and reminded Ray of his obligation to them not VH1. Also Mona worked with Diddy during the Viacom days [pictured above] and was planning on working something out with him and possibly having Cassie play a miniscule role (Lola Monroe’s bff) on the show, but integral enough for her to promote her music and modeling career. Plus Tyga and Blac Chyna were in talks with E! and Mona wanted to lock them in with her show before E! became aware of their popularity, being E!’s new EVP (Jeff Olde) use to be the EVP at VH1, and worked with Mona to make Love & Hip-Hop the success it is now.
As you know Mona was quick to publicly deny that bootleg Houston cast with a bunch of nobodies which was totally false, but has yet to make a public statement denying the Love & Hip-Hop LA cast.
