She is more than just Ray J’s assistant!
This LA diva is setting the record straight as she spoke with us exclusively about her upcoming business ventures, her portrayal on the show Love & Hip Hop Hollywood, stepping away from Ray J, and much more.
How do you feel about your portrayal as Ray J’s assistant on Love & Hip Hop?
Morgan Hardman: Well, I would say I’m okay with it. I would say that some of the stuff on there kind of threw me for a loop. I kind of feel like it made it seem like I don’t work hard, that’s something that I lived for. I live for my child and my work you know what I mean? I’m a very very hard worker, so I feel like it took away from how hard I do work but a lot of people are telling me that it didn’t, but I kind of feel like it did. I wish that it would of focused more on how hard I do work.
Ever since they started airing the show, has there been any tension between your friendship with Teairra Mari or any of the cast members on the show?
M.H.: Honestly, whoever doesn’t like me is just pretty much irrelevant in my life … So honestly, no I don’t care for whoever doesn’t like me or whoever has tension with me, that’s their own problem (laughs).
Are there any future projects you have coming up that fans should be looking out for?
M.H.: I collaborated with Miss Diddy, who actually has her own company called The Brand Group and pretty much we’re going to be holding these seminars, where we train people to become either great assistants or great managers. We train them in branding and marketing, so basically me and Diddy are doing this worldwide city tour where we’re holding these seminars, where we’re giving the people the skills and we are also offering them jobs because I’m also opening up an agency where I could place assistants and managers in different positions with different people. So that’s something that I’m working on with Miss Diddy, as well as my book.
It has come to our attention that you been working with Yesi Ortiz of Power 106?
M.H.: Yes, actually I have. I’m actually talking with her now, so we can collaborate on some stuff for Cali’s Christmas … so definitely that’s one of my aces. She’s my favorite person on the show. I love her and she’s been my friend for about 10 years. You know she’s just a motivator, so she’s been in this game a long time. I respect her opinion and I respect her advice. So she is someone I definitely lean on and I love collaborating with.
Is radio something you are trying to get involved with along leaving the assistant title?
M.H.: I went to school for radio broadcasting but being a single mother at such a young age, I had to work and school wasn’t paying no bills. So, I didn’t finish it. I wouldn’t say I would want to get into radio because it just looks a little difficult for me, but I would definitely love to get into the interviewing thing, the red carpets and different stuff like that. I mean anything I put my mind to I can do it.
Can you share a funny behind the scenes moment from filming the show with Ray J?
M.H.: Well, I would say he definitely didn’t want me doing that red carpet and he kind of was like, “how you interviewing celebrities, how you going to take my job.” … It was funny to me because he felt like I shouldn’t be interviewing celebrities that I was taking his job … so I kind of felt like he was a little jealous about it. So maybe that’s why he took it to the extreme of firing me, but you know it is what it is. I’m almost 30 years old, I don’t need to be anybody’s assistant anymore. I have the boss-like mentality, so at the end of the day, I need to be my own boss.
