MTO News spoke with a VH1 producer who spilled the tea on the upcoming season of Love & Hip Hop NY. Love and Hip Hop has done a total revamp for the New York installment. After poor ratings and a bad reception for season 8, a lot of season 8 cast was fired or scaled back due to fights, not enough storyline, unnecessary fighting/lack of dialogue, or for being boring and uninteresting.
Mona did a mass firing of majority of the cast!
Gone are the following
4. Brittaney Taylor
5. Bianca Bonnie
6. Lil Mo
7. Karl Dargan
8. Navarro Gray
9. DJ Self
10. James R
11. Ashley Diaz
12. Sophia Body
14. Ayisha Diaz
15. JuJu ( Will only make CAMEO apperances)
The franchise is going for a much smaller cast for season 9: Only 9 from season 8 are returning! The returning Cast Members are as follow:
Ruben (Anais Husband)
Remy Ma (Appearance will be scaled back similar to K. Michelle in season 4)
Now for the NEW additions. Executives approached three fan favorites from previous seasons, to do Season 9 of Love and Hip Hop NYC. Rejoining the cast of Love and Hip Hop are:
1. Joe Budden
2. Cyn Santana
Maino and his girlfriend Maggie Carrie are also joining the cast, along with Dave East and his girlfriend Millie.
Love and Hip Hop NY returns December 2018 to VH1.
