Producer Mona Scott-Young has apparently found a replacement for departing “Love & Hip Hop Atlanta” loud mouth K. Michelle, who is joining the cast of the LHHNY to help save that show from cancellation.
According to reality show blogger Michelle of SFtA, rapper Waka Flocka Flame and his fiancée, Tammy Rivera, are set to join the “Love & Hip Hop Atlanta” hijinks next season.
Michelle reports that Waka agreed to sign on the dotted line after sitting on the fence for years. Now that Waka’s recording career is in decline (and real gangstas are gunning for him in the streets), a reality show is a safer environment for him.
Waka’s mother, Debra Antney (who used to run Ludacris’s foundation) makes occasional appearances on the show to give pep talks to wannabe rapper Rasheeda.
LHHATL features music producer Stevie J and transgender stripper-turned-singer Joseline Hernandez as a warring “couple” who can’t decide if they want to be with each other. Entrepreneur Mimi Faust, who has a daughter with Stevie, pretends to be annoyed that he can’t make up his mind to be with her or Joseline.
Rapper Lil Scrappy and his baby mama Erica Dixon are rumored to be leaving the show. Maybe that’s why Scrappy got himself arrested for fighting at a gas station earlier this week.
People will do anything to keep those reality TV checks coming in.
