Moniece Slaughter says production companies treat Black reality show cast members like "slaves to the machine."

In an interview with The Jasmine Brand, Moniece, 33, said Black reality TV personalities routinely receive lower pay than their white counterparts.

She said Black reality stars are "not being managed by Kris Jenners" who tell them "We know your worth, we're gonna fight for your worth, and we're not gonna let you do anything that is below what you're worth."

Moniece also alleged that producers use a loophole to get out of paying cast members for working over filming schedules. Moniece accused some producers of being "two-faced" backstabbers who tell networks not to work with cast members who are insubordinate or difficult to work with (such as NeNe Leakes and Phaedra Parks).

In 2019 Moniece announced her departure from Love & Hip-Hop Atlanta, saying her main focus was to be a good mom to her son Kamron (by former fiancé, Fizz).
