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.

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!

Highly-connected sources tell lovebscott.com that the payouts for season 12 of ‘The Real Housewives of Atlanta’ may surprise you.

Newbie Shamari DeVoewho was demoted from official housewife to ‘friend of the show,’ is set to take home $20k for the upcoming season.

Eva Marcille, who will keep her peach, was paid under $100,000 last season and will see a small pay bump for season 12.

Cynthia Bailey is set to take home around $1.25 million.

New mom Porsha Williams is said to be making around $1.3 million.

For all of Marlo Hampton‘s mess, sources tell us that she’s still making less than $100,000 for her appearances this season.

Tanya Sam is is being paid on a day rate. Her money depends on the days she’s available to film.

NeNe Leakes made $100,000 PER EPISODE last season — bringing her season salary to $2.3 million. It’s expected that she’ll be making just a bit more this season.

Contrary to popular belief, we’ve also been told that Kandi Burruss is actually the highest-paid housewife of the Atlanta franchise and will be making just a little over what NeNe is taking home.

Kenya Moore‘s pay rate was just below NeNe and Kandi’s at the time of her departure, however sources tell us that Bravo wants to give her a substantial pay cut to return. They’re still ‘far off’ from coming to a deal.

We had no idea Shamari and Tanya would be paid so little for the upcoming season. Maybe the former can do something to get her peach back, it is not impossible. Porsha was temporarily demoted to a “friend of the housewives” after her fight with Kenya Moore.

“All I Want For Christmas Is You” is pretty much what G-Status ATL Hustle Star, Cordae Gomes has revealed to the masses when it comes to the series’ director, Jah Kitai. As you may already know, for months now it has been speculated, implied, and outright accused by other cast members that the pair is romantically involved. Cordae’s admission of love came via two Instagram posts made of videos of the two from an unknown trip to Miami and some of them kissing.

Check them out below!

Based on the caption from Cordae in the post we see that he and Jah are not “officially” together, but we have to wonder if that is them taking it slow, or waiting for some bigger moment to make some official statement. Honestly, we have so many questions about all of this. Namely, the ethics behind it when it comes to G-Status ATL Hustle and if this relationship has influenced or affected Cordae’s music. Still, the other cast members have often argued Cordae was production’s darling. There may be something to this; after all no one can compete with pillow talk. Still you can find love in the most unlikely places, and when love finds you there really is nothing you can do. We invite both of them to our platform to EXCLUSIVELY discuss their relationship, and to set all records straight! In the meanwhile you can catch Cordae’s new single, BlondeRadio, from his forthcoming album Sex With A Songwriter, below. Happy listening!

Rico Pruitt

We have seen all the trailers for the series–one for the public, and the other uncensored and we have to say Cuffin’ Season really goes there. The series may very well be the first in a new trend of web reality series that seem to be taking the internet by storm. The show is hosted by the extremely sexy Alonzo Frizon (Why isn’t he a contestant? Rico, bruh, that ain’t yo type!?); and the suitors include a motley gayfamous crew of lesser known Web Series actors, a few adult entertainers, and even still some average joes that have never beeped on our radar. No matter what their background is, each of the claim to be gaga for Rico and are really pushing the envelope in their pursuit of him. Whether it is true love or not is something only time and Mr. Pruitt can tell.

We have to admit when we first became aware of the series we were hoping to see Rico branch out with his choice of suitors, but if he likes it then we love it. He is after all, a staunch supporter of our brand and a friend of the site. The Grapevine talks and its juice its rife with information on the winner is. All we can say is anytime we have met them they have always been a cool, cordial, and collected guy. Good luck Rico in your latest tryst with love, we will be watching! Catch Cuffing Season’s premieres 12:00 AM, New Years Day.
