Romeo on the other hand played it cool over the woman he said he once had a “good friendship” with, and said it will be interesting to watch the show – which premieres Oct. 13 – to see how the two try to remain close despite her new relationship.
“It’s not a bombshell,” Romeo said, “because for me, I think life is beautiful and everyone is going to make certain decisions. It’s kind of cool to see your friends grow. But at the same time in life…people grow up and things change. That’s the cool thing about season two. People watching this will be able to say, ‘This person is going through something that I’m going through.’”
BOSSIP spoke to the siblings recently at a press day for their show “Growing Up Hip Hop,” and Simmons cancelled at the last minute because, we later learned, she was giving birth to her baby boy.
Romeo – who’ll also guest star on this season of “Empire” – promised that “Growing Up Hip Hop” would be full of drama, but would also hopefully help youth trying to make it in the music biz.
“We want to inspire this next generation, and hopefully be a guide for young people who want to come up in this business because guess what? There’s a lot of sharks out there,” Romeo said. “It’s not an easy business. You’re going to be tested. And that’s what I like about this season. It’s kind of like a guidebook.”
