EXCLUSIVE: Moniece Slaughter Expresses Frustration Over Ill-Treatment Black Reality TV Stars Receive: We Weren’t Kris Jenner, We Don’t Get Treated The Same

Moniece Slaughter has never been one to bite her tongue or hold back from sharing her own truth. Recently the former Love And Hip-Hop star exclusively shared with theJasmineBRAND her frustration on how black reality tv stars are treated. She said,

“We weren’t Kris Jenner. I was… flat out I’m gonna f*cking say it. We weren’t Kris Jenner. We’re not being managed by Kris Jenners. We don’t have, you know, a collective of people who are like ‘We know your worth, we’re gonna fight for your worth, and we’re not gonna let you do anything that is below what you’re worth.’”

She added,

“And so we don’t get treated the same. We don’t get paid the same and we don’t have ownership. So we are literally a slave to the machine and it’s sold to you one way and then once you get in it you didn’t have Kris Jenner representation therefore you got stuck in a bad deal.”

Moniece Slaughter also shared how black production companies can blackball you from working if you try to get out of your bad deal early. She said,





“What’s sick about it is it’s the black production company that goes to the network that says ‘She’s insubordinate, she’s hard to work with, she’s difficult, she’s blah blah blah blah. And then the more you fight to get out- you get other opportunities – it’s the black production company that goes to that network and says ‘don’t work with her.’ But it’s that same black production company that is sending you through the wringer.”

In addition to that, the mother-of-one also revealed why she believes Love And Hip-Hop is able to get away with low balling cast members of the reality franchise. She said,





“I, later on, found out that ‘Love And Hip Hop’ was listed as a 48-minute infomercial. Which allowed them to get away with not having to follow union rules or payout union pay. And so what that means is, you know, we can shoot more than 12 hours. They don’t have to give us per diem. They don’t have to give us, you know, a set budget for lunch. They don’t have to pay us bi-weekly, weekly. They don’t have to you know take out taxes.”
