BET is bringing back “College Hill” but with a celebrity twist.
“College Hill” was a reality television series on BET that followed the lives of students at historically black colleges. The series ran from 2004-2009 and is considered “America’s 1st ever African-American reality series.”
Now, according to The Jasmine Brand, BET is retooling the show with celebrities that didn’t attend or finish college. Instead of airing on BET however, the show will be able to be viewed on BET+, the paid streaming service for Black Entertainment Television.
Per the site Lamar Odom, NeNe Leakes, Ray J, Big Freedia, and Dream Doll have been cast and apparently filming is already underway. The group was recently spotted on the campus of Texas Southern University (TSU).

Our reaction to this concept is mixed but we know this cast of characters is going to cut up.
Odom was most recently seen on Celebrity Big Brother and made headlines for his confessions about ex-wife Khloe Kardashian. Leakes, who was an O.G. member of The Real Housewives Of Atlanta, is known for a good read, and Ray J is constantly trending for his social media antics, interviews or divorce drama with estranged wife Princess Love. Then of course former Bad Girls Club cast member Dream Doll knows how to bring the drama while Big Freedia who starred on her own reality show will bring the energy and the bounce.
So will you guys tune in to the new College Hill? Sound off in the comments.
