VH1 TO #GETCATTY WITH FELINE FRIDAYS
New Programs Present New CATegory for the Music + Pop Culture Network
Open CATsting Call for New Series “Mob Cats” + “Love & Hip Hop: Catlanta” + “Love + Hip Hop: Meow York”
NEW YORK, NY (April 1, 2014) – The cat is out of the bag today as VH1 announced a new slate of original animal-centric programming for VH1’s new Feline Fridays. Greenlights for the new night include “Mob Cats,” “Love & Hip Hop: Catlanta,” “Love + Hip Hop: Meow York” and “Behind The Scratch Board: Kitty Purry.” Sneaks of the series are available now at VH1.com and in the VH1 App.
New Series Ordered Include:
• ”Mob Cats” tags along with Staten Islands most (in)famous litter as they scratch, paw and pounce their way to the top. These kitties will definitely need all nine of their lives.
• ”Love & Hip Hop: Catlanta” The claws are out as these kittens hustle the game to make it in hip-hop. Some get distracted by laser pointers, though.
• ”Love & Hip Hop: Meow York” These bad kitties are prowling Meow York and they aren’t playing nice in the litter box. The claws will most certainly come out.
• ”Behind the Scratch Board: Kitty Purry” examines the glamorous – and yet still very lazy and indifferent – life of America’s most famous kitty and her famous momma, Katy Perry.
“You can’t deny the growing impact that pets are having on pop culture,” said Tom Calderone, President, VH1. “We know that crossing our proven hit franchises like ‘Mob Wives’ and ‘Love & Hip Hop’ with feline characters and storylines will be catnip to our viewers.”
Additionally, VH1 put out word of an open CATsting call. VH1 is looking for willing and able cats for its new series. To submit your cat for one of the network’s new shows, tweet or Instagram @VH1 a picture of your animal with the hashtag #VH1CatCasting. For every picture submitted VH1 will also donate $1 to a national animal support organization.

Love & Hip Hop Atlanta star Benzino has spent the last three days in the hospital recovering from two gunshot wounds to the back and the arm, and now he’s spoken out about the situation that led up to his shooting. The Boston Globe reports that a feud over money and over the care of Benzino’s now-deceased mother led to tension within his family. Early details of the shooting claimed Benzino was riding in the funeral procession on the way to the church, but Benzino clarifies that he actually was not on his way to the funeral, he has mourned his mother, Mary Scott, separately that day so he would not disrupt the memorial.
“I didn’t want to be around them. I felt like, I didn’t want any problems. I can love my mother and there doesn’t have to be any problems with family,” he told the Globe. He adds that he encountered the funeral procession by chance as he was driving to meet a friend. “I looked over, there was a car, and all I saw was a gun shooting at me. I was trying to duck and dodge, drive around it, maneuver the car…I was bleeding a lot. I was driving with my thumb in my shoulder to try to stop the bleeding.” The assailant, Gai Scott, is the son of Benzino’s sister and has been arrested and charged with armed assault with intent to murder.

Another month has passed us, which means it’s only right that we now reflect on how served face, and uh, other body parts best online. Per usual, Draya remains the undefeated queen of sexy as hell selfies with others like Cyn Santana and Joseline Hernandez right on her heels. Sadly, there are no Momma Dee and Mama Jones selfies to represent for the older, but still slaying on you [redacted] to share. Maybe April will bring more fortune. Until then, enjoy!
If you loved the premiere episode of This Is Hot 97 as much as we did, you’ll be excited to hear that you can watch the second episode right now without waiting until next Monday night.
The full episode is available in the VH1 App, which is now available for free on the App Store and Google Play.
