K. Michelle Brings the Drama in ‘My Life’ Trailer

K. Michelle

She’s back, bitches. This November, K. Michelle brings the drama back to VH1 in her own reality series “K. Michelle: My Life.” The “Love & Hip Hop: Atlanta” star takes New York by storm, and there’s no holding back. She bares all in a photo shoot (and runs around naked), kicks someone out of her house (damn, girl), and gets hilariously mocked by her son.

“You’ll get to see me as a mother and as a singer,” K told Rap-Up TV. “‘Love & Hip Hop’ is never the place for a child. So in the reality show, you’ll see what it’s like traveling back and forth to my son to work to just being a mother, an artist, trying to fit a sex symbol in there a little bit. You’ll just get to see my life. It’s crazy.”

“K. Michelle: My Life” premieres November 3 at 9 p.m. on VH1. Watch a preview of all the outrageousness below.
