For a little while, it looked like Jhonni Blaze was poised for reality TV stardom: her stint on Season 5 of LHHNY widened her exposure and earned her thousands of new fans, but she never quite rose above support status and decided against coming back the following year. Then, she was set to be one of the headliners for VH1’s much-lauded Love & Hip Hop Houston spinoff, which filmed for several weeks last year.
However, two things conspired against Blaze: network execs deemed the pilot episode surprisingly dull and decided to pass on the show. And a huge fight during one of the first scenes filmed allegedly resulted in guns being drawn, a cameraman being injured, and the whole production getting shut down for several weeks. (So you could argue that it really was nice of VH1 to even entertain an LHHHouston pilot episode at all.)

It’s not immediately clear if Jhonni is all-in with Chicago, or if she’s just popping up for a few episodes.

While everyone seemed to blindsided by the pictures, Bryshere’s ex wasn’t. _______________________________ She took to IG Live to get some things off of her chest. She said Jhonni allegedly would send Bryshere pictures while they were together. She claims that he would ignore her, at least when she went through his phone, but admits he probably was calling instead of texting her. _______________________________ What’s interesting though is that Bryshere's ex and him were together for three years, on and off. She revealed that she had a miscarriage at five months and wears a tattoo on her arm to symbolize the hurt she had. She said they broke up right before the “New Edition” movie premiere. _________________________________ Aside from his ex, someone very close to Bryshere claims all of this is true, and said this isn't news to them either. She said Jhonni and Yazz spent New Years Eve together after the puffy party util he left to go–Read More At TheShadeRoom.com
