For the love of Ray J, I don’t know how I’m going to make it through another season of Love & Hip Hop: Hollywood! Thankfully, I won’t have to suffer through it without Brandi’s little brother. It was touch and go for a moment though. Phew!
The franchise has had its ups and downs, but L&HH: ATL seems to have the lock on the popularity and the rest of the cities seem to be flailing…although not for the lack of manufactured drama. However, Ray J isn’t a fan of creating craziness for ratings, and he’s been threatening to peace out from the series if his story line didn’t start focusing less on mayhem and more on his business pursuits.
Mona Scott Young deserves the slowest of slow claps. She is always trying to outdo herself in crazy drama. Unfortunately, she didn’t realize that when she cast Love & Hip Hop: Atlanta, she was going to create the perfect storm, one which even the franchise’s creator couldn’t live up to in the grand scheme of VH1.
But, gracious, she certainly keeps trying! In an effort to bring new life to the original Love & Hip Hop, Mona has brought in a few new cast members. None are so memorable as Baltimore native Chrissy Monroe. She dates music producer Chink Santana, she’s got long-standing beef with Erica Mena due to her past as an alleged madame career as a modeling mogul, and she’s got a suitcase full of wigs that leave Kim Zolciak envious. Well, maybe not, but the lady has some serious hair pieces!
Y’all know that the juiciest gossip surrounding the Love & Hip Hop franchise happens in Atlanta, and Mona Scott Young is always trying to keep it that way. That said, one hip hop star has made the rounds, appearing on the crazy Love & Hip Hop: Atlanta before flying north to liven up its more yawn worthy original New York counterpart. Of course I’m talking about K. Michelle! The boisterous talent even garnered her own reality show, K. Michelle: My Life.
Now, rumors are swirling that K. Michelle (and also Mona!) have something to do with the breakdown of the marriage between music executive Memphitz and his wife (and Lil’ Wayne’s ex-wife) reality star Toya Wright…but it’s not for the reasons you may think! Come, step inside my time machine…we’re going to rehash some things that went down in 2012!
I think we all can agree that no one is in Benzino’s corner like this gal. I’m his biggest fan. I’m a champion of those with no neck on which to balance their head. I believe that he’s a catch who needs to be appreciated for the complex man that he is. Don’t judge me.
The former Love & Hip Hop: Atlanta star seems like a stand up character compared to his friends and co-stars, but No-Neck seems to be racking up the arrests lately. It doesn’t look good when the show’s voice of reason keeps finding himself in handcuffs. I’m not going to say Mona was hasty in firing him from the upcoming season, but I’m guessing she is kicking herself from missing the opportunity to get all of Zino’s legal woes on film for ratings.
Mona, Mona, Mona. Leave well enough alone! We’re already tired of Chrissy’s wigs and Peter Gunz’ love triangle on Love & Hip Hop, and people are anxiously awaiting the return of the franchise that doesn’t need any additional drama. Love & Hip Hop Atlanta is ratchet on an entirely different level, and regardless of the regurgitated story lines and failed child support payments, it was something the audience revered.
There’s just something about Stevie J’s rat face, Joseline Hernandez’ spandex concoctions, and Lil’ Scrappy’s subtitles that just can’t be duplicated…even though they weren’t the original franchise. Don’t mess with a good thing, Mona. Oh wait…too late.
Benzino is not a man who travels light! He travels loaded, and by loaded I mean with a loaded gun! The former Love & Hip Hop Atlanta star was arrested last night for trying to sneak a loaded gun through airport security. Just who exactly was he afraid would be on his flight – Joseline?!
According to law enforcement Benzino, aka Raymond Scott, was planning to board a flight at Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport but when he dropped his carry-on bag on the security checkpoint conveyor belt, TSA immediately noticed a suspiciously-shaped item. Suspiciously-shaped as in it looked like a gun. A .9mm to be exact. A loaded .9 millimeter to be exactly exact.
Stop the bus! We’ve got a lot of Stevie J. news to share. Before I start, I certainly hope that Mona Scott Young has Dr. Drew on speed dial so she can cash in on her Love & Hip Hop Atlanta star’s latest dramz! Celebrity Rehab plus LHH:ATL definitely equals a reality train wreck we’d all tune in to watch. And I’m worried about the future of humanity!
We all know that ol’ Stevie has been battling the feds over a minor child support snafu. Please note that “minor” was supposed to be typed in my special “sarcasm” font. The reality star reportedly owes back support to one the mothers of his children to the tune of over $1 million after neglecting to pay since 2001. His hearing is scheduled for January 9th, but apparently Stevie is hoping to strike a deal. Here’s hoping it happens before he heads to rehab. Yes, you read that correctly!
