Are you guys ready for Love & Hip-Hop Hotlanta? It sure will be messy, crazy and filled with drama. In the past I reported who is on the show, who was tapped on the shoulder to do the show, who quit the show, so on and so forth. Below is the latest gossip surrounding the show:
It is being reported that Rasheeda and Kirk Frost will be the headliners on the show. Rasheeda is a popular rapper from Atlanta and Frost is her husband/manager and also partners in her “I’m Bossy” accessories business. The two also has an 11-year-old son.
Producer Stevie J will be a cast member as well. If you guys are not familiar with him, he is a record producer who rose to fame in the 90’s, after producing for Diddy’s Bad Boy artists including Biggie Smalls, Mase and 112. He also dated Philly’s rapper Eve and was once linked to Whoopi Goldberg’s daughter, Alexandria Martin. He’ll reportedly be on the show with his girlfriend, “MiMi” and an up & coming female artist he’s developing.
Rapper Lil Scrappy & his mother are also featured on the show, which is the reason why Diamond quit in the middle of tapping. More on that soon! It is rumored that Scrappy and his mother are like the “Jim Jones/Mama Jones” of Atlanta.
Last year, I reported that female rapper Diamond and Yung Joc’s former assistant Rici have been “tapped on the shoulder” to sign on for the show. In fact, Diamond actually started filming for the show, but recently quit. According to StraightFromTheA, “Scrappy’s Mom has been on the warpath and has publicly said that she will beat the breaks off Diamond if she ever catches her. Diamond took a break in filming the other day and decided to head to the nearest bathroom to pray. She came out a while later and told the staff that she quit, stating only that she’d ‘spoken to God’ and he told her that it was best to do so.”
Let’s just say, there will be some lawsuits filed and from the looks of it, Diamond will be getting sued. You CAN’T sign a contract to appear on a show then quit! I hope Diamond has some good lawyers.
Yung Joc’s former assistant Rici was supposed to be on the show as well. It is being reported that she is not on the show because she refused to create conflicts with Joc and his baby mother. In the past, they had a dispute but Rici wasn’t trying to air out all the dirty laundry on national television.
Finally, Diamond quitting the show gave singer K. Michelle a chance to be on the show. She is a 25-year-old singer/songwriter who is labeled as R. Kelly’s protegé. She was once or still is signed to Memphitz Hitz ‘Hitz Committee’ imprint. He was responsible for K. Michelle’s label deal with Jive Records.
So as it stands, the cast of Love & Hip Hop Atlanta includes the following people:
Rasheeda & Kirk Frost
Producer Stevie J, his Baby Mama “MiMi” and his artist
Lil Scrappy, Scrappy’s Baby Mama, Mama D
