We were in the building for the screening of the new season premiere of We TV’s Growing Up Hip-Hop Atlanta (GUHHATL)!

The night kicked off with a very cute and classy concessions stand filled with the perfect snacks for a movie night. Movie theater styled complementary boxed candy favorites like Milk Duds, M & M’s and even Swedish Fish. The smell of fresh popcorn filled Midtown’s Woodruff Arts Center and the weather couldn’t have been better for celebrities and exclusively invited guests to get appropriately slayed for the occasion.

Additional VIPs included Da BratDatari Turner (producer, “GrowingUp Hip Hop Atlanta”); “Love & Hip Hop: Atlanta” stars Estelita Quintero, Karlie Redd and Melissa ScottKenya Moore and Cynthia Bailey (“Real Housewives of Atlanta”); Mama June and daughter Alana “Honey Boo Boo” Thompson (“From Not to Hot”); Trina and Towanda Braxton (“Braxton Family Values”); Gocha Hawkins (“LA Hair”); Quad Webb-Lunceford (“Married to Medicine”); Demetria McKinney (eOne Recording Artist), Gary Hayes (“Dish Nation”), Juicy (“Rickey Smiley Morning Show”), Syleena Johnson (“Sister Circle”), Dawn Halfkenny (“Saints & Sinners”), Bangladesh (music producer); as well as Web Stars Rahim Brazil, Rocc and November.

As we all know in Season 1 Bow Wow returns to Atlanta to record his final studio album but runs into trouble at the studio. Since last season Bow Wow has grown although we have to wait and see what drama unfolds with Jermaine Dupree and DaBrat due to Bow wanting to make Executive decisions. Zonnique continues to step up to take control over her music career. and is very focused on creating her identity in this season. Reginae, 19 now and in college, last year the conflict with castmate Brandon Barnes got out of control!!! We, literally have watched this young girl grow into a beautiful young woman who genuinely reminded us in the audience that “she is young and makes mistakes” this left us all wondering what’s going to happen next with Reginae and Brandon as we hope they sort out their differences.

Shaniah, Jermaine Dupri’s daughter returns, but with a secret boyfriend???!!! Let’s see how this unfolds this season. Brandon is back and with no patience for anyone or anything but focused on Artist Development. We had the pleasure of being introduced to, Promise, his managed group. They were so good, Reginae got up to give Brandon his props on their work. Ayana is fierce hunnayyy!! This season the young Mogul and entrepreneur is focused on growing and managing her clothing line Cozy Closet, where sexy meets comfort. Overall, this season is starting to look very interesting as we see the young Hip Hop moguls create their own lanes in the Hip Hop history like their parents.

Make sure you catch Season 2 Episode 1 of Growing Up Hip Hop ATL this Thursday, January 11, 2018 at 9:00PM EST!

When reality television gets the web series flare you just know there is going to be a LIT show! That is exactly what we were expecting–and are seeing–in Karon’s latest venture into web reality, The Come Up ATL!

We are very familiar with the original Come Up based in New York City, but now it seems the success, love, drama, and mayhem have trickled down South to The A! We recently came across the supertrailer to the series, set to debut in February and we have to say we LOVE every minute of it!

In the words of Atlanta “kidz” everywhere, “YESSS!” Mona Scott Young eat your heart out! Now, we definitely do not know most of the cast, but are very familiar with Rocc Sherrill, a popular web star and rising actor who recently made Atlanta his home late last year.  We are even more happy to see our very own Michael “Hey Mikey” Fanning making a cameo appearance!

The Come Up ATL already seems to have the perfect ingredients for a hit reality show–triumph, drama, a good ‘hood fight, infidelity, oh and let’s not forget laughs! We will be tuning in February to catch all this tea–we mean all these episodes! Happy viewing!

[VIDEO] #Mayhem! We TV’s (@WEtv) New Reality Series, “The Black Book” Cast Fight!

WE TV is definitely home to some of television’s most popular reality series. Braxton Family Values, Mary Mary, Cutting It In The ATL, and Marriage Boot Camp are just a few of them.

However, we happened to be on set of the pilot of WE TV’s latest reality series, The Black Book, and we have to say it was lit!

WE TV is definitely home to some of television’s most popular reality seriesBraxton Family Values, Mary Mary, Cutting It In The ATL, and Marriage Boot Camp are just a few of them.

However, we happened to be on set of the pilot of WE TV’s latest reality series, The Black Book, and we have to say it was lit!

The Black Book is based on a group of Atlanta authors either making moves in the book industry or beginning to make their mark. The cast consists of virtually unknown authors, but each of them have work and credentials behind their names. Last night, the pilot of the series was filmed in East Atlanta at an event, celebrating the book debut of one the cast members known as Shan. The event started off very peaceful, with most of the guests taking pictures with Shan, networking, and enjoying hors d’oeuvres.

In “real” reality show fashion things quickly became volatile. Apparently a group of women led by another cast member showed up at Shan’s event and quickly became loud and disrespectful. Despite others’ attempts to quell the nonsense mayhem quickly ensued and spilled over into the streets! The police became involved, but we managed to grab this quick video from the fight. Check it out below!

Crazy right? Well we can assure you no one was arrested, but we were there for PR work when all of this broke out. We hope the show will be balanced in its portrayal of the authors, especially with them being Black authors (and our very own Mikey knowing two of them personally off camera). We have enough ratchet reality shows free flowing throughout the Metro Atlanta area. What do you guys think? Will you be tuning in to The Black Book? Just think, this is the pilot episode!

She “Twirls” On! Kenya Moore (@KenyaMoore) Did NOT Quit or Get Fired from “The Real Housewives of Atlanta!”

Well it looks like a lot of fans officially “drunk the Koolaide” when it came to a recent Real Housewives of Atlanta rumor.

Apparently due to Kenya Moore’s absence at the cast’s big girls’ trip in Barcelona, Spain, many thought she either quit the show, or like Phaedra Parks was axed. These speculations and assumptions only strengthened when supermodel/actress, Eva Marcille appeared on the girls trip instead.

Well sources close to the show have confirmed that Kenya is still very much so a part of the show, and according to the folks over at Love B. Scott she skipped the Barcelona trip for a very good reason–that they will not reveal just yet. Kenya confirmed it too–in her own way–via her Instagram with a “royal declaration.”

We see you Kenya! Our guess is that she may finally be having that baby she longs for and an international flight and then a trip that is bound to be dramatic and chalked full of cat fights just is not good medicine for a woman of her age carrying a little one. AGAIN, this is sheer SPECULATION. Do not hold us to this.

Interestingly, Kenya was not the only one of the ladies not on the trip, Kim Zolciak-Biermann skipped the trip as well, but for businesses purposes.

This tenth season of The Real Housewives of Atlanta is definitely going to be lit. With big personalities like Nene, Kim, and Kenya all in the mix we can be assured the drama will be high, the laughs will be intense, and someone is going to be taken down a peg. Catch the season premiere, Sunday, November 5 at 9 PM EST only on Bravo!
