WETV came to Atlanta recently to host a pre-screening of one of their hit reality show’s, Love After LockUp for Season 2. This is a new series now on my radar and I was happy to get a first look at Season 2 of the show! Thank you WETV for inviting me as an exclusive Atlanta influencer and check out a little of my recap and review of the show.

About “Love After Lockup” Season 2
The second season of Love After Lockup will follow 6 couples, who fell in love and got engaged while one was incarcerated. We will meet each couple just prior to the jailed partner’s release and follow them on their journey to –potentially –the marriage altar. In S2 the debate between true love v. scam will be even more pronounced, and the “firsts” will be even more abundant–first touch, first kiss, moving in together, meeting the family, etc… Between the stories we follow and the way we follow them (from visually dramatic releases to raw shocking reveals), S2 will amplify the best elements of LAL and take us down new paths of love, mystery, heartbreak, and drama. While each of our couples has their own unique stories, all of them will be going through the same journey over the season—from prison to the altar.

My thoughts: I will be honest, I was pretty skeptical on how entertaining this show would be. I am not about drama reality tv, but this is not just drama – these storylines are crazy. I didn’t even think about a world of people who are actually finding love with people who are incarcerated. I know it sounds nuts, but everyone needs love too right?

Well you got your cases of people falling in love with inmates on their sex appeal, people falling in love with an inmate and possibly the inmate is using someone for financial gain only, and then we have a really interesting case; someone looking to lose their virginity to their inmate lover and marry them. Ok that one was a little much for me. A 28 year old virgin who is also engaged to her inmate fiance and saving herself for him when he gets out. I want to tell you more about this girl and that story alone, but lets just say DONT DO IT GIRL!

Mostly all of the couples who are on this show are looking towards marriage, moving in and really starting a new life when they are all getting release and the cameras will be rolling to see it all unfold. I will be following this series, I have to see how far these relationships will go.
