Two popular cast members of "Love and Hip Hop Atlanta" are bringing locally based 30-minute spin-off shows to VH1 on December 19: Stevie J and K. Michelle.
Music producer Stevie J already aired a spin-off show with his now ex Joseline Hernandez earlier this year while they were in Hollywood. Their relationship fell apart soon after and Joseline is now pregnant, probably with Stevie J's child.
His new show is called "Leave It To Stevie," which may be some reference to "Leave it To Beaver" but probably not.
Here's the descriptive for his show from VH1:
A fresh start calls for fresh experiences. With his five children as his top priority, Stevie resolves to forge deeper connections with his family and return to the studio to create new music. Newly single Stevie embarks on life as a bachelor with the help of longtime buddies Yung Joc and Scrappy but will an old friend have him considering a romantic relationship? The series will premiere Monday, December 19, 2016 at 9PM ET/PT.
Then the third season of "K. Michelle: My Life" returns. She had been in New York the first two seasons but returned as a regular cast member of "Love and Hip Hop Atlanta" this past season despite hardly interacting with anybody on the cast.
And here's her precis:
Michelle is ready to discover the real “Kimberly Pate” by embracing her roots and reconnecting with her past. After coming off her “Hello Kimberly” tour, she returns to Atlanta to launch her new restaurant Puff & Petals and develop young talent. On a trip to Memphis, K’s hometown secrets will be revealed by her family, friends and her sister Shalah. The third season of “K. Michelle: My Life” will premiere December 19, 2016 at 9:30 PM ET/PT on VH1.
Obviously, both shows are bridges to the sixth season of "Love and Hip Hop Atlanta" set to return in late winter or early spring.
