VH1 confirms an Atlanta spinoff of ‘Love & Hip Hop’

No cast has been set for "Love and Hip Hop Atlanta" but this is the cast from season two of the original.

No cast has been set for "Love and Hip Hop Atlanta" but this is the cast from season two of the original.

The reality shows featuring bickering women keep on coming because honestly, the ratings keep on coming.

After a couple of rather dry years, VH1 has hit a ratings geyser with its soap-operatic reality shows such as “Basketball Wives,” “Mob Wives” and New York-based “Love and Hip Hop.” They’ve already spun off “Basketball Wives” into “Baseball Wives.” Now VH1 has confirmed that they are doing a “Love and Hip Hop” featuring Atlanta hip-hop ladies.

The second season of ‘Love and Hip Hop” just came to a close and a “reunion” show is set for Feb. 6. (Apparently, it’s not a true reunion but interviews with each individual ladies because some didn’t want to be in the same room together.) It drew comparable ratings to “The Real Housewives of Atlanta,’ averaging close to 3 million viewers. The January 23 episode drew 3.15 million viewers. For VH1, that’s huge.

Atlanta, of course, is known as a major town for hip hop. Several folks in the hip-hop/R&B world from Atlanta have already taken part in reality shows, including Keyshia Cole, Toni Braxton, Chilli, Monica, T.I. and Tiny and Kandi Burruss, to name a few. And if you go back a few years, there was Bobby Brown and Whitney Houston.

In this day and age where selling albums is not a way to riches anymore, becoming a “brand” and getting your name out there via a TV reality series is the next best route.

Casting has not been finalized, according to a VH1 spokeswoman.
