Sierra Gates seems poised for a bigger role on ‘Love & Hip Hop’ this season

Gates has been a supporting cast member on the show since the sixth season. Most of her storylines have revolved around her relationship with her ex-husband, Shooter Gates. She began dating BK Brasco by the show’s seventh season.

The eighth season trailer for the show was released this week, and by the looks of the trailer and the press release for the season, it looks like there is a good chance that Sierra could have been promoted to a main cast member on the series. However, we won’t know for sure if she’s now a series regular until the season debuts.

In the trailer, Gates talks about potentially going to jail, but it is unclear what exactly she’s talking about.

The star is making this move after her daughter’s attack

Last month, Gates’ daughter was attacked at school by another student and their parent. The other student’s mother, Treon F. Ponder, turned herself in and was charged with battery, disrupting public school and contributing to the delinquency of a minor

At the time, Gates told the Atlanta Journal-Constitution, “I was heartbroken. I’ve been crying all day. To see that her safety is not assured at school is very scary to me.” In a later interview with V-103, Gates alleged that jealousy and her fame was the reason behind her daughter’s attack. Shooter was also at the interview.
