It looks like K. Michelle is done with VH1’s Love & Hip Hop reality show franchise for now. Over the last decade, the R&B vocalist was a cast member on Love & Hip Hop: Atlanta, Love & Hip Hop: New York, and Love & Hip Hop: Hollywood.
The Memphis, Tennessee native born Kimberly Michelle Pate even had her own program titled K. Michelle: My Life which ran for three seasons on VH1. However, Pate took to Instagram on Wednesday to announce that she is officially moving over to the Lifetime network.
Michelle posted on Instagram:
So life for me is completely changing. For 6 years of my life I was on a show called “Love and Hip Hop” it really helped me reach a lot of my goals at the time, I’ll never knock that blessing. But I knew in my heart I could no longer participate in something I was not passionate about and had no desire to be on camera with any of the cast. I just didn’t care I knew it was time for something bigger than throwing drinks. I wanted to turn my pain into purpose. So it’s finally here. I start filming my new show on Lifetime in Feb and it’s such an amazing feeling to not only watch your dreams come true but to KNOW ILL BE HELPING WOMEN TO LIVE! Saving lives. Little ole me. When they count you out, God will count you in.
According to the Florida A&M University graduate’s Instagram caption, veteran reality television producers Jesse Collins (Sunday Best, Rhythm + Flow) and Carlos King (Real Housewives of Atlanta, Hollywood Divas) are attached to the production as well. K. Michelle previously suggested the series will revolve around women who had botched or unauthorized surgeries.
“The show is just basically helping women who might have gotten illegal butt shots, have silicone in them, and who can’t afford to get it out,” said K. Michelle in 2020 about the presently untitled Lifetime program. “So we’re trying to save some lives and help them.”
