Season 2 of VH1’s Love & Hip Hop Atlanta premiered last night. Here’s a little background: Producer Mona Scott-Young is reportedly under pressure to save her empire which has become victim to poor ratings. In a recent interview in Atlanta, that she thought was off the record, Mona defended the public’s perception that her shows were scripted.
She let it slip out that Love & Hip Hop Atlanta was “in its own category”, which one blogger took as a tacit admission that LHHATL is indeed scripted. Mona also hinted that her other reality series (Love & Hip Hop NY) would be cancelled due to low ratings. (The interview took place last month).
