Keyshia Cole may have joined the season four cast of Love & Hip Hop Hollywood, but it wasn’t to throw drinks, jump over tables like Tasmanian devils, or to put her love life on front street. She keeps it strictly about the music and in seeing her facial expressions whenever drama is brought up, you know that’s the only thing it’s about.
When asked to be on the show, it is clear this Grammy-nominated artist wants zero parts in the messy and the petty. Case in point. Zell Swag is Keyshia’s stylist and close friend, but remember when he tried to vent to her about “all these crusty b—s?” (Masika and Alexis). Well, in episode four he gives her the play-by-play of how Alexis splashed him with a couple of drinks before hitting him with a bag and Keyshia is legit standing there with the blank stare like:
As he continues speaking on who did what to whom, Keyshia takes a deep breath and says “right” but looks like she’s ready to change the subject, kind of how young Chloe’s face was when she found out she was going to Disney World.
Another “unbothered Keyshia” time was when Masika tried to tell her about Zell and Misster Ray acting a fool at her Khari Barbie makeup event. She didn’t shut them down but her generic advice of “If it’s my event, I’m going to make sure that certain people aren’t involved in my event” pretty much says, “chile, I don’t need to know all your business, just know this for next time, so there won’t be one.”
Then when Nia tried to get some advice for the gawdess Keyshia about Teairra’s drinking, Keyshia pumped the brakes on that convo because 1. Teairra wasn’t there and 2. Teairra wasn’t there.
In a scene where she was actually getting to the music, working in the studio with A1, she dipped the moment Lyrica threw saltiness in the conversation.
She even threw in the “you look very nice” compliment before calmly letting them handle their B.I.
The fans notice Keyshia is not with the s–ts and respect her even more for that.
Keyshia Cole looks so uninterested ??#LHHH

It’s like her motto is elevate, don’t instigate. That’s right Keyshia, keep your eye on that prize.
