Television producer Carlos King (“Real Housewives of Atlanta,” “Hollywood Divas,” “Love & Hip Hop Atlanta”) is back with a new groundbreaking television show, ‘The Next 15.’ ‘The Next 15’ brings together 6 seasoned reality TV stars, challenging them to take their careers to the next level as they work the Hollywood scene. Claudia Jordan (“Real Housewives of Atlanta,” “The Apprentice”), Benzino (“Love & Hip Hop Atlanta,” “Marriage Boot Camp”), Jennifer Williams (“Basketball Wives”), Tiffany “Miss New York” Pollard (“Flavor Of Love,” “I Love New York”), Laura Govan (“Basketball Wives: LA”), and Karamo Brown (“Real World: Philadelphia”) star in this series, which showcases the normally unseen “4th wall” between the producers and the talent, revealing not only what happens on camera but also behind it, as the action unfolds.

Benzino and his business partner Dave Mays threw one of the hottest events of the holiday season for the show, the “Hip Hop Weekly Goes Hollywood” celebration at H.O.M.E. in Beverly Hills. Armadale CEO C. Bradley arrived on the red carpet there with super-producer/reality star Mally Mall (“Love & Hip Hop Hollywood) and hip hop manager/executive Steve Lobel.

The lavish private event included a gifting lounge put on by Makari de Suisse, a multicultural luxury skin care brand created to help women manifest smooth, radiant and beautiful skin. One of the most popular reality stars of the last decade, the one-and-only Tiffany “New York” Pollard sampled products and tried her hand interviewing Benzino in the Royal Blunts interview suite. ​As the 2-month production came to an end last week, executive producer Carlos King gave an epic wrap party, where the whole cast appeared in all their glory. Scenes were filmed while the party was in full swing. The 8-episode series, will premiere in February on TV One. Check out more photos from the event below. Photos by Arnold Turner & Gary Marshall.
