Our most-read story of 2021 is also our most-read story of 2022 and it is all because of Monique Samuels. Back in December 2021, TV Deets shocked the reality TV world with EXCLUSIVE reporting that showed Monique would be leading up her own Love & Marriage spinoff, now titled Love & Marriage: DC. Not only that, but we spoiled the entire cast for Season 1 just weeks before they were set to film.

We have continued to do the same in 2022, being the first outlet to report that Alfred and Sherrell Duncan are joining LAMDC for Season 2, alongside announced cast members Joi and Clifton from OWN’s Ready To Love. If you are a Love & Marriage fan or are considering getting into the show, TV Deets remains the place for the most up-to-date — and exclusive! — scoop.
