Carter is said to have become close friends with Karlie Redd, and will likely be involved with her storyline on the show.

The duo tells The Blast, “As an African American gay male couple it’s tough as hell in today’s society and there are sooooooooooo many stigmas we’re up against. We are two big personalities who just happens to love each other dearly,” adding that, “With this platform we want to show that love has no face or color. But love is all about treating others with respect. Allowing people to just live their best lives.”

They’re also excited to show a “Gay relationship in more of a positive light.”

Fans of the series know that Carter and Jones won’t be the first gay couple in the “LHH” franchise, as Miles Brock and Milan Christopher were featured on the Hollywood edition in 2015.
