K Michelle*Former “Love & Hip Hop: Atlanta” star K. Michelle admits that she agreed to go the New York series as a trade off to get her own show. But she refuses to film with any other NY cast mates.

“I met with VH1 and with Mona and said I’m not doing that this time.  I’m only filming with my real friends.  Don’t get it twisted Mona Scott Young is still the boss and she’s going to do what she wants.  But I had to do the show as part of the deal to get my own.”

“Love & Hip Hop: New York” has already started filming while K. is expected to start her own show which says will include appearances from Elle Varner.

She also shared her feelings on her new boyfriend of the Indiana Pacers, Lance Stephens. K says that she has never been in love but is having fun with her new relationship. Lance has bought her a puppy that she named Pacer.

K maintains that she likes doing things for herself and doesn’t allow rich boyfriends to pay her bills.

While the NY cast has already started shooting K. is expected to start her own show, which she revealed Elle Varner will be a part of, at the end of this month.

And about her latest baller boyfriend, Pacers baller Lance Stephens, she says she’s never been in love but she’s having fun.  Oh, and he bought her a puppy…which she named Pacer.  Obvi.

K. claims she doesn’t let rich boyfriends pay her bills, she likes doing it for herself.  And she’s clearly not turning down any trips to Puerto Rico either (pictured above a few weeks ago on vacay together).
