“After having a baby out of wedlock, Angela Simmons (Rev Run’s daughter), opens up for the first time about a devastating breakup and facing public scrutiny. Vanessa Simmons yearns to be closer to her sister, Angela, but new business opportunities lead to a dramatic sibling rivalry. Romeo Miller (Master P’s son) finds himself chasing after the ‘one that got away’ and running to New Orleans with his pops to save an incarcerated family member who goes on a hunger strike! Meanwhile, Damon “Boogie” Dash’s (Damon Dash’s son) addiction spirals out of control when his little sister’s life becomes endangered. Briana Latrise (Mary J. Blige’s stepdaughter) teams up with Dame to save Boogie’s life and plot a surprise intervention. With her checkered family history, Kristinia DeBarge (James DeBarge’s daughter) musters the courage to meet with her long-lost cousin Kyndall Ferguson (El DeBarge’s daughter) while she plans a life changing move to Vegas to further her music career. Tyran Moore (Sandra “Pepa” Denton’s son) comes to visit his mother to mend broken ties, and unleashes years of pent up resentment growing up under her fame in family therapy. Egypt Criss (Pepa Denton’s daughter) has a new beau, but not everyone trusts his intentions with the princess of hip hop, including Egypt’s cousin, Tahira “Tee Tee” Francis. A shotgun wedding in Vegas shocks all!”
While it may come as a surprise for fans of the show to see Briana Latrise included among the core cast in the season summary after saying she was quitting at the end of season 4, according to Urban Belle, she and her boyfriend were spotted filming for the new season back in August.
