Marriage Boot Camp is returning to WE tv in January with a brand new set of couples for its special Hip Hop Edition, which will premiere on a new night.
WE tv has formally announced the cast of couples -- who are current or former stars of VH1's Love & Hip Hop franchise -- looking to save their relationships whenMarriage Boot Camp: Hip Hop Edition premieres Thursday, January 10 at 10PM ET/PT.
The couples are Soulja Boy and girlfriend Nia Riley, rapper Waka Flocka and wife Tammy Rivera, Lil' Mo and husband Karl Dargan, Jessica Dime and fiance Shawne Williams, and Lil' Fizz of B2K and girlfriend Tiffany Campbell.
Rumors the Marriage Boot Camp couples would be from Love & Hip Hop began to swirl online earlier this fall.
The participating couples will be forced to leave their lavish lifestyles of champagne and fancy cars behind to work through their scandals, dark secrets, and cheating allegations under the guidance of therapists Dr. Venus Nicolino and Dr. Ish Major. Judge Lynn Toler will also continue to make appearances on the show.
Marriage Boot Camp: Hip Hop Edition will quickly launch "into breakdowns and blow ups when the couples are stripped away from the VIP treatment and find themselves pleading their case before Judge Lynn Toler from Divorce Court," according to the network.
The couples will apparently prove a life in the fast lane can be both a blessing and a curse when it comes to relationships.
The series, produced by Thinkfactory Media, will air on a new night following the debut of Growing Up Hip Hop.
Below are the cast members and WE tv-supplied descriptions of each relationship on Marriage Boot Camp: Hip Hop Edition:
