Season 3 of the reality show had been particularly tumultious and when tensions rose during the reunion show several of the cast members felt the wrath of a reportedly ‘coked out’ Joseline Hernandez and Stevie J.
There’s been speculation for months about Benzino’s return, especially since it’s been rumored that Thi-Thi filed a multi-million dollar lawsuit against popular franchise after the fight.
[SIDEBAR: I heard some time ago that Atlanta’s own DJ Holiday could be up next to fill Benzino’s reality show spot… but you didn’t hear that from me.]
Whatever the case, it seems that Mona Scott-Young chose to squash whatever ‘beef’ was brewing between the two couples by getting rid of one of them, and clearly it’s ‘money over errrrythang’ as she decided to stick with her ‘coked out’ cash cows.
More details below…
Benzino and fiancee Althea Eaton think “Love & Hip Hop: Atlanta” should air on Animal Planet … because they think producers are making them scapegoats.
Production sources tell us the couple was given the boot Wednesday AM … with no explanation.
Benzino says it’s obvious he and Althea are being blamed for the fight between them and castmates Joseline Hernandez and Stevie J … a brawl that proved irresistible for other cast members.
TMZ broke the story … Althea sued Joseline, claiming she started the fight while she was high on crack.
Although Althea got her ass whooped … producers sided with Joseline, even though other castmates felt Joseline should have gotten the boot.
VH1 wouldn’t comment, but it’s pretty obvious. Joseline’s better TV, and that trumps everything.
Benzino hit the tweets to respond to news of his termination, stating:
He went on to rant online about Mona’s decision…
What do you think of news of Benzino & Althea’s termination?
Was it a smart move? or Dumb Decision?
