He’s been on MTV’s Cribs, is starring in the new Samsung campaign and has made several appearances on TV shows since 2012, but now Lil Wayne has his own show in the works. According to Stephanie Acevedo, Lil Wayne is coming to reality TV.
Acevedo stopped by renowned plastic surgeon Dr. Miami’s office, where she spilled tea on a forthcoming VH1 reality show starring Tunechi. “We just signed a contract with VH1, we are going to be doing a reality show that we are going to be shooting in July in L.A.,” she told Dr. Miami.
The show, apparently called Lil Wayne’s House, will feature Weezy, Stephanie and other YM artists living together and follow them working and collaborating. Dr. Miami broke the news via his Facebook page and there is not much more info on the storyline. Acevedo confirmed Dr. Miami was the first to know about Weezy’s plans to take over cable television.
Back in January, the latest Young Money signee spoke on how she joined the label. “I’ve had friendships with them for a few … two or three years,” said Steph.”We’ve had contact with each other but musically – in the last few months, we’ve been working at this and trying to get everything together.”
Stephanie even commented on the unity within YM, despite issues with Cash Money Records. “I think they’re a great label,” she said. “They’re very united and I definitely feel the love and support and that’s what any new artist should feel. You should feel that back up… the love. I’m very happy.”
Weezy announced Stephanie was on the YM team by releasing a video featuring her cover of Leona Lewis’ “Bleeding Love.” Stephanie joins Nicki Minaj, Chanel West Coast, Christina Milian and Shanell on Young Money’s roster of female stars.
