Singer, songwriter, and actor Ray J is continuing his reality TV career this fall as part of the cast of Love and Hip Hop: Hollywood.
The show is the latest in his growing reality television career, which includes two seasons each of For the Love of Ray J and Brandy & Ray J: A Family Business, both on VH1.
For The Love Of Ray J followed a tradition set by rapper Flavor Flav on his dating show Flavor of Love.
We had Ray J give his castmates nicknames the way he would if they were contestants on For the Love Of Ray Jay.
Apryl, girlfriend of singer Omarion: Classy
"Classy" for Apryl because Apryl is the homie Omarion's baby mama, and it would be very disrespectful for me to say anything negative to anybody's baby mama. At the same time she carries herself well, they both seem like they happy, and they got just good morals on them goin' on. I like Omarion, I like Apryl, and they seem like a good couple.
Moniece, ex-girlfriend of Lil' Fizz: Bandit
Moniece is like really — I was gonna say "dominatrix," but I don't know how to spell that. But she's really ... she's sellin' dildos and she got her own shit goin' on. She came to my sister's house one time, and she was in another relationship ... my homie had a Lambo, she had a car too ... she crashed her car into his Lambo, messed his whole car up, and kept movin' like nothin' ever happened. Bandit!
Hazel E, girlfriend of rapper Yung Berg: Creative
She's really trying to be a marvel of Love and Hip Hop: Hollywood ... building the show as far as titles, she got labels, she's Hollywood, you know. These are cast members that she put together; she put together a whole portfolio of how the show should look even before all the cast was here. And we talked about a couple other television shows, she's got a show that I wanna sell. She got some dope ass ideas.
Nikki, girlfriend of Jamal Rashid: Damn Damn Damn!
OK when she got out the car in the promo, she know she shoulda had on some clothes, we ain't got to the pool yet! You feel what I'm sayin? She got out the car with her bikini on, and all I saw was damn, daaaamn, daaaaaamn! And that was it. Nothing perverted about it, it was just all over the place.
(Here's the scene he's talking about:)
Nia, girlfriend of rapper Soulja Boy: ?
I don't know her. I don't do scenes with nobody that I don't know. I don't force nothin' on my story, it gotta be real. I don't do nothin' with nobody that I don't know.
Teairra Marie, Ray J's ex-girlfriend: Crazy
And a note about Princess Love, Ray J's current girlfriend:
"I mean it's self-explanatory. I'm a one woman man, you know?
