Call the drama police, because this season of Love & Hip Hop: Atlanta is shaping up to be one for the record books. VH1 just released the trailer for season three and there is a shooting, a paternity test, the fallout over the release of a sex tape and plenty of cat fights and relationship tensions.
The new season of Love & Hip Hop: Atlanta premieres on Monday, May 5 at 8PM ET/PT and includes the regular cast of characters, along with a few new additions. Up-and-coming rapper, Waka Flocka Flame and his fiancé, Tammy Rivera, Scrappy‘s new girl, Bambi, plus Yung Joc and Kalenna Harper all join the show for season three. Now, let the fireworks begin.
Hop Hollywood recently caught up with Bambi at the BET Hop Hop Awards. When asked about her presence on the upcoming season of L&HH ATL, she shyly replies, "I'm pretty sure. Maybe a little bit." Does "a little bit" mean a little bit more than the hot tub scene with Benzino when Kirk Frost got into a whole menage of trouble? Only time will tell, I guess. Bambi also shares that she is totally done with all things BBW: LA, although her friendship with Malaysia is still solid. As for Scrappy's ex-fiance and the mother of his child Erica Dixon, Bambi is pretty much "Erica who?"
I wonder if Bambi is the princess that Queen Momma Dee has been waiting on her prince to find?

In a new interview with Dallas' 97.9 The Beat Studio, Scrappy confronts rumors that he was fired from L&HH and reveals that his latest arrest was cause he was defending his girlfriend. Modern romance, baby. I will so totally brawl in front of the nacho cheese dip dispenser for you!
On getting arrested recently for fighting in a gas station with former friend Kenny Rogers, Scrappy insists he is not to blame! "Somebody I know – he got real disrespectful. I told him, 'I'm on probation, I can't be doing all this.' He done said the wrong thing to me a couple times – and other occasions as well – so it was really backed up," Scrappy explains.
The latest rumor to plague the massively popular show is that Lil' Scrappy is saying sayonara. Now this story originates from Media Take Out so put your skepticism hats on, but rumor has it the rapper was FIRED and replaced with Waka Flocka Flame!
Apparently Scrappy was surprised to learn of this termination because he tweeted "Not true" when asked about the rumor. He added that he wasn't sure if Waka Flocka was joining the cast but he certainly isn't leaving!
When we last saw Bambi, she was nuzzling the neck chin and shoulders of my favorite bobble head Benzino (seriously, I kind of adore him) pre-Kirk Frost threesome in the woods. Well, now she's moved on to one of Benzino's Love & Hip Hop Atlanta cast mates, and it's too bad that this didn't happen before the reunion because an altercation between Zino and this guy would have been amizzznigheeazing!
And we're back with the second dose of Basketball Wives LA Reunion madness. I don't know if you're considering it a Christmas miracle to get two recaps back to back or if you're wondering how naughty you must have been this year to deserve two helpings of this madness in one day. I hope it's the former. :) Let's check in with John Salley and his purple plaid, shall we?
We return with the ladies holding up their cards sharing who should exit stage left from the show next season. You have captivated me, John Salley, that is for sure! Laura and Jackie's duel is in full force, and I adore that John has finally stood up so that we could regale his attire in all it's Urkel glory. Who is styling these folks? Getting back to the situation at hand, the majority of the women are ready to get rid of the Sisters Govan and Bambi for next season. Most of the women believe that Gloria is too snooty for the show. Jackie calls out herself…just to play the martyr. She was concerned that most of the women would pick her (they didn't). Jackie says that even though no one may want her back, she'll be back regardless.
RT readers and Basketball Wives LA fans, please accept my sincerest apologies. I had no clue that the first half of the reunion was airing immediately after the finale, and for some reason my season pass didn't record it. I realize it's a week late, but I hope you enjoy the recap. The second half of the reunion will be posted later today.
John Salley introduces the newbies, and is it just me, or is he dressed like Willie Wonka? He welcomes Brooke Bailey and Bambi before touting the veterans, Gloria Govan, Laura Govan, Malaysia Pargo, Draya Michele…and of course, the lady who carried the season, Jackie Christie. John shares that this year the reunion will have some surprises and many more fan questions. Jackie is sporting her finest vinyl dominatrix attire. We revisit the beginning of the season when Malaysia was trying to get the girls on board with reconciling with Jackie. We all know how that went! Jackie reveals that she returned to prove that she wasn't the pot stirrer we saw last season. Uh huh.
Starting in with the viewer questions, John asks why Malaysia worked so hard to bring Jackie back into the group. Malaysia counters that she is an actual basketball wife (smack in the face of 90% of her co-stars), and her breasts on On Display, as Melissa Gorga would say. Another viewer wonders about Laura's evil behavior to Jackie, and Laura owns up to it. Her girls are also all out for us to see. I'm starting to notice that they all are…except for that random blonde chick…oh wait, that's Bambi. :) Laura and Jackie get into a back-and-forth about Laura's need for tit-for-tat. Insults are hurled and John Salley can't seem to bring the women back into the Chocolate Factory. VH1, you are usually so generous with the subtitles….what happened?
Can you believe that we've finally come to the finale of this season's Basketball Wives LA? I feel like we've been watching the Jackie Christie Show for eons! Am I right? Needless to say, last night's show resolved nada, so we have to wait on pins and needles for the reunion!
We're back on Borboun Street, y'all, and Draya Michele is hella hungover, so she misses out on the cooking lesson with Laura Govan, Brooke Bailey, Jackie, Bambi, Malaysia Pargo, and Gloria Govan. I'm sure that Draya planned it. Jackie is visibly upset because she has just received a text message from her daughter regarding Laura's conversation with said offspring. I can't tell if Jackie is wearing a make-shift beret or some kind of homemade sock hat. Malaysia and Bambi are quick to wade in Jackie's drama pool. Bambi is appalled at Laura's behavior. Can someone please buy her a box set of last season's DVDs?
Over lunch, Jackie questions Laura about her intentions with her daughter. The other ladies take their cues and leave the table so Jackie and Laura can hash out their differences. Laura maintains a poker face while Jackie pleads her case about Chantal. Laura admits that she originally spoke to Chantal to discredit Jackie, but after chatting with Jackie's daughter, she realized her anger towards Jackie was misplaced. It was during her conversation with Chantal that Laura realized that she needed change her intentions. Her master plan was to bring down Jackie, but after speaking with Chantal, she knew that revenge wasn't the answer. Jackie is unsure of how to take Laura's confession.
