Do you miss the faux-love focused reality shows like Flavor of Love, Rock of Love, and I Love New York? Your answer doesn’t matter because one is coming back either way.
Naturally, it will star Benzino, the lovelorn supporting character on Love and Hip Hop Atlanta. Yes, Karlie Redd’s sorta boo thang took to Instagram to announce casting for the reality series.
It could possibly just be nothing more than a pilot, but I doubt that. You all have seen how ridiculous Benzino is. This show will get a series order and become another nugget of reality TV gold. It’ll also be trash, highly dramatized, and well…everything we’re used to seeing in the format that built the nouveau VH1 we know today.
My initial instinct was to slam the idea, but who am I kidding? I’ll be watching Benzino: Sucker For Love for at least four regular episodes, the season finale and the reunion. I will say, though, I wouldn’t mind a dating show starring Mimi or K. Michelle. K’s too busy having real success as a recording artist to do it, but you know, Mimi would be pretty damn good at it herself.
Now when are we going to get that southern rap remix of I Love Lucy starring Joseline Hernandez and Stevie J?
