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.
Um, when you start to mess with Benzino, you're messing with this girl. It's no secret that the neckless wonder is my favorite person from the entire Love & Hip Hop franchise. He's equal parts harmless and unintentionally hilarious. So to the idiot who shot him while he was en route to his mother's funeral (yes, you read all of that correctly), shame on you. What is this world coming to?
Obviously, 'Zino is thankfully doing alright after the ordeal, and I know this courtesy of Stevie J.'s Instagram. Could this story get any more twisted? The Love & Hip Hop: Atlanta star is recuperating after being rushed to the hospital following a shooting which occurred during his mother's funeral procession. I don't even know what to make of this situation.
So Mona Scott-Young may be getting sued? Who knew that Love & Hip Hop would ever be the subject of a law suit that wasn't based on someone getting injured in a show-related brawl? Is the idea for that franchise so popular that multiple people thought of the concept at the same time? If that is the case, should we be worried about our culture? Probably, but Mona wins with the discovery of Stevie J. for sure!
MTV and VH1 are apparently being sued for infringement due to Mona's brainchild. However, as the show's creator, Mona has yet to see any formal paperwork. In fact, like us, she's only read about it in the blogs! It seems that someone is claiming that Mona stole their idea for a hip hop reality show. Can't we all just get along? There is plenty of room in the reality realm for multiple trashy shows, right?
I realize that I have the benefit of hindsight, but I think I could have told anyone months ago that the two skeeziest (and therefore most entertaining) stars of Love & Hip Hop: Atlantaopening a restaurant/bar/club would not have been the best idea. And, of course, I would have been right. Duh!
Besties Stevie J. and no-neckBenzino had the grand opening of their "bistro bar" Sleazy & Zino which ended up in a big ol' mess…as is par for the course with this crew. It's been reported that the fight was instigated by Joseline Hernandez' friend, and Karlie Redd was knocked out in the process. There was even talk that VH1 wouldn't allow regular old folks like you and me party with the cast for fear of a lawsuit in the event of yet another violent outburst. Good times with these guys, for sure!
Well, it's a good thing that Laura Govan isn't returning to Basketball Wives: L.A. because breaking the law doesn't make for a good story line! Oh wait, this is VH1, so yes, yes, it probably does! Laura was just slapped with a lawsuit which alleges she violated federal law. That's never good!
Well, I'm totally floored by this news as I'm sure y'all are too, right? It seems that Love & Hip Hop Atlanta isn't just ripe for drama…it's ripe for violence as well. I, for one, just can't believe it!
The red carpet affair, hosted by V-103's Big Tigger, got a little out of hand. You're shocked, we know. We were planning to just share the fun pics of the night's festivities and then the news broke that a pretty big fight went down. Thankfully VH1 cameras were rolling, right? Looks like we'll have front row seats when the episode airs.
The details of the fight are a little fuzzy, but a party goer told TMZ "the trouble began when Joseline Hernandez walked in with a girlfriend. We're told the friend instigated an argument … and pretty soon fists were flying. Karlie Redd was knocked out … several others suffered bloody cuts … and somebody threw a bottle at Momma Dee, hitting her in the face."
Aside from the entertainment (aka the brawl), the night featured a live performance by Stevie J. and Benzino’s new twelve piece band, the Magnificent 757’s and tasting of the bistro’s signature dishes and a toast presented by Ciroc and Birthday Cake Wine.
