Returning are favourites Spice, Erica Mena, Bambi and Scrappy, Rasheeda and Kirk Frost, Yandy Smith and Mendeecees, Momma Dee, Safaree Samuels, and Karlie Redd, as well as Yung Joc & Kendra Robinson, according to an exclusive from PopCulture.com.
New cast members include Erica Banks, a “viral sensation” known for her song “Buss It,” Amy Luciani Popular, an influencer, entrepreneur, and rapper, and Jessica White, runway model and Nick Cannon’s ex-girlfriend, as well as an aspiring R&B singer. Also appearing on LHHATL Season 11 are Renni Rucci, Shekinah Jo, Sierra Gages and Eric Whitehead, and Khaotic, according to the announcement.
Interestingly enough, the PopCulture.com report detailing the Season 11 announcement included text that states the other cities in the franchise will remain on VH1, despite LHHATL jumping to MTV. “Future seasons of Love & Hip Hop from other cities will remain on VH1 and will air later in 2023,” reads the report. (PopCulture.com is owned by Paramount.)
As previously reported, Paramount is moving LHHATL from VH1 to MTV for Season 11.

As previously reported, Paramount is looking to update the Love & Hip Hop franchise.
The company, which oversees both VH1 and MTV as well as streaming service Paramount+, has decided to make some programming changes and is moving LHHATL as well as other shows like Couples Retreat and Caught In The Act: Unfaithful to MTV. The shows are all from Lashan Browning’s Antoinette Media which Paramount recently invested in, reports Deadline.
According to the report, the shows will air on Tuesday nights and form a new Tuesday Night Takeover. Love & Hip Hop Atlanta, which originally premiered on VH1 in 2009 and is returning for Season 11, is being rebooted and retooled with a more “docu approach to storytelling.”
“On the heels of launching Antoinette Media with Lashan Browning, we’re thrilled to continue fueling our robust unscripted slate of hits on MTV and introduce new audiences to the cultural phenomenon Love & Hip Hop: Atlanta as well as fan favorites like Couples Retreat and Caught in the Act: Unfaithful,” said Nina L. Diaz, Chief Creative Officer and President of Content, Showtime and MTV Entertainment Studios, according to Deadline.
Love & Hip Hop Atlanta Season 11 premieres Tuesday, June 13th at 8|7c on MTV.
