F3TV: The drama begins at VH1's Love & Hip Hop: Hollywood launch event

Film Flam Flummox

VH1's special September 9 launch event for Love & Hip Hop: Hollywood, the third series in Mona Scott-Young's popular reality television franchise following the lives, loves, and ex-loves of various performers, producers, and personalities in the hip-hop and R&B music scene, may have taken place nearly a full week before the show's official premiere, but the cast didn't waste any time bringing the drama. In a rather intense Q&A session following a screening of the first episode, which marked the first time anyone in the cast had seen a completed installment, Ray J, Teairra Mari, Soulja Boy, Nia Riley, Omarion, Apryl Jones, Morgan Hardman, Hazel-E, Moniece Slaughter, (formerly Lil') Fizz, Young Berg, and Masika Kalysha (the latter two of whom do not appear in the first week) spoke candidly about their feelings about their show--and, quite often, each other, as one can see and hear in my video of the entire discussion below. (Note: any loud heckles/laughs/wisecracks were from audience members sitting nearby.)

The scene on the arrivals carpet at the TCL Chinese Theatre in Hollywood just beforehand was a far more mellow and celebratory scene, as one can see in my photos and video below.
