Love & Hip Hop Atlanta fans are going to be floored to hear that Benzino and Althea Eaton have been fired from the show and won’t be included in season 4! Benzino learned of the news online this afternoon and is not taking it very well. Our Lauren is not going to take this well, either!
Benzino is going nuclear on Twitter, bashing the show and lashing out at their decision to keep Stevie J. and Joseline Hernandez and not him and Althea. He shares that they were planning to get married on the show in season 4!
Benzino writes, “Damn, I thought after all I have done for the franchise, I eould be appriciated, not vicitmized, I guess doing the right thing dont count. So this is what happens when a man shows loyalty to his so called bro huh? All I did was stick up and protect the woman I fell in love with.”
He continues, “So the WILD DRUGGED OUT ANIMAL GETS TO STAY BUT ME AND THI GET FIRED??? AND I NEVER EVEN GOT 1 PHONE CALL SINCE THE REUNION IN JULY? If you take me and thi and mimi out of the show last season, WHAT WOULD BE THEIR STORYLINE???? EVERYTHING ABOUT THEM WAS FAKE AS F***!”
Benzino isn’t taking the firing sitting down, “OH THIS IS FAR FROM BEING OVER!!! STAY TUNED!! SHOUTS TO EVERYBODY WHO BEEN ROCKIN WIT ME SINCE SEASON 1! #THIANDZFORLIFE.”
He goes on to slam Joseline, claiming she was threatening Althea’s life way back before the reunion brawl. “Just know that HOESALINE THREATENED ALTHEA’S LIFE ON 7 EPISODES BEFORE SHE ACTUALLY ATTACKED HER AT THE REUNION…. SHE EVEN WARNED ARIANE THAT SHE WOULD NOT TOUCH HER, WICH HOWS IT WAS PLANNED, THEN AFTER THE REUNION SHE STILL THREATENED THI IN INTERVIEW.”
He’s rallying the fans to protest the firing by Tweeting to Mona and VH1. Our writer Lauren will volunteer to lead that effort, no doubt! “If yall think that it’s fair to bring them back but not us, then let @MonaScottYoung #lhhatl & @VH1 know…..”
He also shares that a wedding was in the works!! “Damn! Me and BaeBae was ready to come back after givin an amazing season 3 which broke all @VH1 records, we was gonna get married season 4. After having a zillion failed “ENGAGEMENTS” and “FAKE MARRIGES” they would finally want a REAL WEDDING….guess not.”
He ended with, “When somebody gets a real explanation on why we was fired, please let me know..”.
We’ll keep you posted on any new updates! I wonder if any of it has to do with the fact that Althea is suing Joseline, claiming she was high on crack at the reunion?
TELL US – ARE YOU SHOCKED THAT VH1 WOULD LET THEM GO AND KEEP STEVIE J. AND JOSELINE?
