"I've been in this game a long time... I've been with a lot of women but I'm ready to get out. I want to do this show to find a ride or die chick, a chick that makes me want to get out of the game." - Ray J
Ray J, acclaimed singer, songwriter, actor and celebrated "bad boy" of Hollywood has lived the life most people only dream about - late nights and lots and lots of girls.
But being in the business as long as Ray J has been has made him question whether true love is possible...
Ray J's success has brought many perks, including many beautiful women, but it's exactly these type of women that has made him question his belief in love.
The simple fact is, the women in his circle - the social climbers, gold-diggers and groupies - are with him for all the wrong reasons. Ray wants to break away from these types of girls, and find that unique lady capable of restoring his faith in women.
So Ray has decided to give love a chance, and pour his heart and soul into it. He knows he can't do it on his own, so Ray hit up VH1 and told them he wanted to do a show like his boys Flavor Flav and Bret Michaels, but he wants to do it the Ray J way...cool, young and sexy as hell.
Ray will spend the next month giving all types of women a chance to be his "ride or die chick".
Ray will bring 14 of the finest girls from around the country to his mansion in the Hollywood Hills and put them through challenges, dates and eliminations to find the ladies that are smart, funny and beautiful enough to survive the cut.
Having these girls with him will not slow down his lifestyle, he will continue to be Ray J - bringing these girls with him to the hottest spots in LA, to Sin City to meet his famous friends, and even to meet his family.
The girls that survive the initial eliminations will be put through more tests to see who can fit into Ray's lifestyle... get along with his friends and family...and be the one girl to make him believe in love again.
Join us on our journey as 14 of the sexiest women from across the country try to tame the ultimate ladies man, Ray J.
World famous R&B superstar Ray J is back for another season of For the Love of Ray J.
Last season Ray brought 14 beautiful women to his home to see if he could find love - and he thought he did.
After going through challenges, dates and eliminations Cocktail won Ray J's heart and the two of them hoped things would work out, but it wasn't meant to be. Ray picked the best girl in the house, but unfortunately it wasn't the best girl for him.
Just because things didn't work out with Cocktail doesn't mean Ray didn't have blast. The whole experience was crazy.... so he can't wait to do it again.
Ray wants to give love a second chance, so he hit up VH1 and told them he wanted to do it just like last time, but better. And this time he really wants to find the girl for him.
Ray will bring 18 of the finest girls from around the country to his mansion in the Hollywood Hills and put them through challenges, dates and eliminations to find the ladies that are smart, funny and beautiful enough to survive the cut.
Having these girls with him however will not slow down his lifestyle; he'll continue living the young Hollywood dream but do it while bringing these girls along for the ride. He'll introduce them to some of hottest spots in LA, his celebrity friends and family, and take them places only celebrities have access to.
