As the newest addition to the Los Angles Devil Girls squad, Ahsha Hayes has already been tasked with getting up to speed on complex choreography while sticking to Olivia Vincent‘s guidelines, making sure she’s doing her mother proud, and staying away from the glistening, toned ab muscles of certain professional basketball players. (Hi, German!) As a recent college grad, Hit The Floor star Taylour Paige knows what it’s like to juggle personal with professional; she filmed the pilot for our new scripted series during her last semester in college. Does that mean we can expect Ahsha to wax on the merits of Foucault at some point this season?
The proven ability to multi-task, paired with her genuine excitement at simply being in a room with lights and a camera, makes Taylour very similar to her onscreen counterpart. It’s been a wild ride from auditions to filming to waiting (and waiting) for premiere night, and as you can see from the video above, the newcomer is having the time of her life. Checkout photos from our shoot with the HTF star during her visit to the VH1 offices, and listen carefully to the advice she has for young women battling girl-on-girl hate. Whether you’re up against a mini Jelena Howard or the next Regina George, Taylour has some sincere thoughts for the Ahshas of the world, or anyone who’s faced some tough competition in their lifetime.
Catch an all-new episode of Hit The Floor on Monday, June 3 at 9/8 C.
