A lot or a little?

The parents' guide to what's in this TV show.

Positive Messages

Relationship problems, sobriety are issues addressed, but not many lessons are learned. 

Positive Role Models & Representations

Joseline is a diva; Stevie J encourages it.


Yelling, arguing, fighting, pushing, and shoving.


Strong, crude innuendo; close-ups on women's rear ends, with thongs visible. Infidelity discussed.


High-end logos such as Gucci sometimes visible.

Drinking, Drugs & Smoking

Stevie J is an alcoholic; wine, champagne drinking visible.

What parents need to know

Parents need to know that Stevie J & Joseline Go Hollywood, a Love and Hip Hop: Atlanta spin-off, centers on the cast's relationship problems. Infidelity, drinking, alcoholism, and sobriety are major themes. There's endless bleeped cursing, arguing, and very strong sexual innuendo, much of which is crude. There's some racial/ethnic stereotyping, too.

What's the story?

STEVIE J & JOSELINE GO HOLLYWOOD is a reality series following Love and Hip Hop: Atlanta’s Stevie J and Joseline Hernández as they try to take Los Angeles by storm. After a stint in rehab, Stevie J is ready to get his career back on track, and he heads to the west coast with his five children to pursue new projects, including a film opportunity. Meanwhile, Joseline, who is now separated from the hip-hop artist, goes to Hollywood on her own to focus on her own projects, while also working on the same film. As they both attempt to restart their careers, there’s a lot of drama as they try to do business together.

Is it any good?

This series offers some pretty lukewarm, voyeuristic entertainment by playing up a dysfunctional relationship between the separated couple. As a result, there's a lot of orchestrated over-the-top behavior that ranges from pushing and shoving to overt sexual flirtations.

Fans of the duo may be interested in tuning in, while others may find the challenges of pulling a film project together interesting. But the overall series doesn't offer anything particularly positive.

Talk to your kids about ...

  • Families can talk about the reasons people have reality shows. Are these shows a good vehicle for talking about people's personal problems? How much exaggeration do you think happens?

  • Families can also talk about celebrity. Do you see reality stars in the same way you see actors? Why, or why not?
