‘Love & Hip Hop’: Former Stars Waka Flocka Flame and Tammy Rivera Hop to We tv for New Reality Show
Tammy Rivera was a fan favorite on Love & Hip Hop because she mostly stayed away from the drama, at least compared to some of her cast members. Now, she and Waka Flocka Flame now have their very own reality show at WE tv and it seems to be just as entertaining as you’ve ever seen the couple on-screen.
Waka Flocka Flame and Tammy Rivera on ‘Love & Hip Hop’
Tammy Rivera was a main cast member on Love & Hip Hop: Atlanta for the third, fifth and sixth seasons. She was a supporting cast member during the show’s fourth season and guest-starred in some episodes during the seventh season. Waka Flocka Flame was a supporting cast member during all of the seasons in which Rivera starred in the series.
When she first got on the show, much of Rivera’s storyline involved her dealing with Waka Flocka’s past infidelity. At the season three reunion, when Joseline Hernandez and Stevie J fought most of the cast, Rivera had a violent altercation with Hernandez and didn’t return to the show until near the end of its fourth season.
In season 5, when she returned as a series regular, she launched a swimwear line and that was one of her primary storylines. She was interested in hiring transgender models and was going to work with a woman named D. Smith, but they came into conflict when she took issue with Waka Flocka’s past comments about transgender people. Rivera and Waka Flocka separate near the end of the season. They reunited in season six as Rivera launches her music career.
After leaving the show, they appeared on WE tv’s Marriage Boot Camp and also had a wedding special on the network. The two were briefly on Growing Up Hip Hop: Atlanta, starring in the show’s third season.
Here’s what to expect on ‘Waka & Tammy: What the Flocka’
Waka & Tammy: What the Flocka is the duo’s first solo reality show.
In an interview with the Atlanta-Journal Constitution, Rivera was asked about being one of the most conflict-free stars on Love & Hip Hop and how she didn’t “embarrass herself.”
The singer and television personality explained, “It [her time on Love & Hip Hop] was very successful no matter what people say about it. It gave me a platform to create my own businesses and make my own money. I’ve made millions off that show. I have a successful swimsuit line. Music has been very successful.”
So far, the WE tv show has a test run of six episodes. according to the AJC, the show will “focus on home renovation woes, their music careers, parenting a 14-year-old daughter Charlie and tolerating meddling in-laws.”
“We give them the real and raw and uncut,” Rivera explained.
Waka & Tammy: What the Flocka airs Thursdays on WE tv.
