K.Michelle's "Rebellious Soul" Returns to VH1 for Second Season of "K.Michelle: My Life"
NEW YORK, August 27, 2015 -- VH1's industry-leading "Love & Hip Hop" franchise continues to help define pop culture today.
"Love & Hip Hop Atlanta," cable's #1 reality show this summer, generated equally impressive numbers last week for the first part of the two-part reunion special, ranking as #1 telecast of the night among adults and women. The second part of the reunion airs Monday, August 31 at 8 PM ET/PT.
And now the TV juggernaut is launching two additional series - a new season of "K.Michelle: My Life," starring a breakout member of the franchise's Atlanta series and an untitled brand new series featuring Stevie J and Joseline, the provocative couple from "Love & Hip Hop: Atlanta."
"In a summer where the film 'Straight Outta Compton' went straight to #1, Taylor Swift's collaboration with Kendrick Lamar topped the Billboard charts and our own "Love & Hip Hop: Atlanta" ranked as the #1 reality show on cable, hip hop's dominance of pop culture was confirmed yet again," said Susan Levison, EVP of Original Programming and Production, VH1. "We're excited to fuel our audience's continued fascination with all things hip hop by extending the storylines of some of their favorite "Love & Hip Hop" cast members."
