Judge Tosses Lawsuit And Rules No Similarities Between "Love & Hip Hop" and "Hip Hop Wives"
(AllHipHop News) The creators of VH1’s hit reality series “Love & Hip Hop” won in court yesterday (November 22), in relation to a lawsuit which claimed the executive producers ripped off the idea.
Nicki Lum-Davis and Trisha Lum claimed they pitched a show called “Hip Hop Wives” to VH1 in 2009 and thought the network had given them a green light.
But, VH1 ended up walking away because they claimed the show was too similar to “Basketball Wives.”
The women claimed that when “Love & Hip Hop” debuted in 2011, it was very reminiscent of their own show.
Unfortunately, for the women, U.S. District Judge Dean Pregerson in Los Angeles said the women failed to show substantial similarity between "Love & Hip Hop" and their "Hip Hop Wives."
