It may have made stars out of ‘Atlanta’s Erica Dixon and ‘New York’s Erica Mena, but it seems Mona Scott-Young‘s ‘Love & Hip Hop’ empire wasn’t as keen to welcome Urban model Sidney Starr, famed for her supposed relationship with rapper Chingy.
Why the transgender TV hopeful says she wasn’t cast in any of ‘Hip Hop’s spinoffs?
Her claims below…
After revealing that she hoped to join any one of the show’s spinoffs, Sidney Starr took her efforts to video sharing site YouTube by uploading a ‘Love & Hip Hop Chicago’ audition tape to her personal page, calling on Young and ‘VH1‘ to consider her for the yet to be announced series.
Alas, her shot at Reality TV fame came to no avail, seemingly ignored by ‘Love’s production company, ‘Monami Entertainment.’
Now, as the show’s ‘Atlanta‘ arm continues to pull in enviable viewing figures, Starr has suggested that her status as a male to female transgender person is to blame for the show’s decision not to cast to her.
How she did it? During a conversation with ‘Vlad TV’ on gay rappers breaking into mainstream culture.
There was a time in my life when I really really wanted to get on a particular show, and let’s just say I was very close to making this particular show and I believe that my situation is what stopped me. That’s why I hope that this gay rapper- or whoever he gon’ be- does happen so we can show people in the world that anything is possible.
