Many reality TV series have been accused of fabricating their story lines for a paycheck like the Real Housewives franchises, Teen Mom and everyone’s favorite Love and Hip Hop and its spin-offs.
Well, over the past, there have been some lawsuits between certain Love and Hip Hop cast members which has revealed the series is less REAL than it claims to be. Read on for the tea spilling…
CelebNReality247.com has learned some interesting facts about the Love & Hip Hop franchise that is going to open your eyes, hopefully NOT wide shut though.
If you recall, the first Love and Hip Hop star to create problems is Joseline Hernandez testified under oath in 2015 during her legal drama co-star Althea Heart.
InTouchWeekly points out that Hernandez told lawyers:
“Well, with reality TV, it’s mostly — you know, it’s called ‘reality,’ but it’s a lot of acting in the reality world.”
“I say that because a lot of the girls that are on the show, they act, and so there’s a lot of acting in a reality TV show, whether it’s Love and Hip Hop or another show. The reality show showcases, you know, a lot of who we are not. And I say that because, it’s just, like, you never know what happens in reality TV. They’ll showcase your music, they’ll showcase certain things, but that’s not who Joseline Hernandez is.”
Joesline admits that Reality TV is a lot of acting than reality:
Let’s not forget that Althea Heart filed a lawsuit against Joseline Hernandez in 2014 accusing her of assaulting her while under the influence of cocaine during the filming of the Season 3 reunion. Shortly after she filed, the suit was later dismissed. How convenient.
The New York Love & Hip Hop got put on front street when Sway in the Morning did an interview with Love & Hip Hop star Peter Gunz. If you recall, Gunz suggested his story lines were bogus. Although, he was willing to be exploited by the series so he could earn a VH1 paycheck of his love triangle drama.
Shortly after his interview with Sway, Peter Gunz interviewed with Bossip and revealed the following.
“S–t was gonna blow up anyway. I was going to get busted. Why not get paid to get busted?”
“I’m f–ked up out here. Last time I went to the ATM, that s–t told me to get the f–k outta here … When they called me about the show, I was three months behind the rent. I just gave y’all what was really going on. I was gonna get busted anyway… Let me get paid to get busted. F–k it.”
Does this make the Love & Hip Hop Franchise Lies of Hip Hop?
Yes, and no. Peter Gunz admitted to turning up his love triangle drama to get paid for his messy ways. Does that mean the show is fake? No, it means Peter Gunz sold out for a check.
As for, Joseline Hernandez, she has always been putting the show on blast claiming that is not who Joseline is. Its funny because every time she does something, she continues to come off like an entitled self-indulgent, rude and foul mouthed. Is she being misrepresented? Maybe, maybe not – she stays consistently nasty, so we don’t believe a word that comes out of her mouth.
Depending on the person involved with the series, Love & Hip Hop tends to be fake. Take for instance Hazel E, Masika, Milan, Misster Ray – many LHH stars “so-called” career accomplishments are fraudulent, or shall we say padded to make them look more in the game. Remember the statement “fake it until you make it?” Love & Hip Hop is a way for comebacks, jumpstarts, and “fake it until you make it,” wannabes trying to get some type of relevance to make themselves a career in the music industry.
