Flocka and Rivera are said to be joining the reality TV version of the five-year-old franchise, sources told the Jasmine Brand in a Wednesday, Oct. 31 report. The couple, who also appears on VH1’s “Love and Hip-Hop: Atlanta,” are said to be joined by other stars in the “Love and Hip Hop” franchise, too. They include former “Love and Hip Hop: Hollywood” stars Soulja Boy and Nia Riley and Lil Mo and husband Karl Dargan of “Love and Hip Hop: New York” along with Jessica Dime of LHHATL.
As such, next season of “Marriage Boot Camp: Reality Stars” will only focus on couples from the various incarnations of LHH. Insiders said the program will showcase couples that probably include two reality stars who are married, in relationships or have broken up. Additionally, filming on the upcoming season is said to have already wrapped.
As for why Waka and Rivera might feel the need to join the show since the spouses have been getting along lately, they have faced issues with the rapper’s infidelity two years into their union. It forced Rivera, who wed Waka in 2014, to separate from her husband in June 2016. But by fall 2017, they had reconciled.
“One thing I can say that’s hard about repairing a marriage when it’s been broken is the trust part,” Rivera told Essence magazine in October last year. “Being able to trust them because once you’ve faced infidelity, it’s hard. Having a positive mindset really helped me because if you think nothing but positive thoughts then that’s what’s going to happen. But he changed completely.”
It’s not clear if some of their past issues have caused them to join boot camp.
