‘MARRIAGE BOOT CAMP: HIP HOP EDITION’

“He’s very calming and soothing and mild-mannered,” she said. “I always dealt with the bad boys, and he’s very opposite from any guy I’ve ever dated. So that’s refreshing.”

Parks and Islam have been getting cozy since March 2019, and while they met on a dating app, Phaedra explained that she “knew him from around town in Atlanta.”

“You know, he used to be on a show here so we have a lot of mutual friends,” she explained. “One of my best friends is one of his best friends as well,” she shared with PEOPLE.

According to the official press release, the couple will be joined on “Marriage Bootcamp” by Willie Taylor and Shanda Denyce (“Love and Hip Hop Hollywood”); “Love and Hip Hop New York” star Tahiry Jose and rapper Vado; model Toni Calvert and hip-hop icon Kurupt; as well as “Love & Hip Hop: Hollywood” star Hazel E. and model De’Von Waller.

Dr. Ish’s unique sensibilities will be doled in a no B.S. tough love fashion in order to pull these celebrities out of the clouds and put them back into reality, along with Judge Lynn Toler who brings her own style to the drills, which aim to test the boot campers and answer: which couple makes beautiful music together, and who should go solo?
