Benzino of Love and Hip Hop Atlanta is apparently gearing up to be more than Stevie J’s right hand man next season.
The hip-hop executive/reality show star whose real name is Raymond Scott, has been hitting the gym in preparation for his latest stint on the show.
Last season you saw Benzino dump Karlie Redd and now he’s officially back on the market.
I recently received a few new photos of Benzino from his publicist, who also sent along a message to the ladies.

Kandi Burruss of The Real Housewives of Atlanta and her fiance´ Todd Tucker are all boo’d up for the March 2013 cover of Sister2Sister magazine.
Kandi is successful in her field and her new gospel song, “Stay Prayed Up” is tops on iTunes this week, but since formally announcing their engagement last month, the cute couple has had their share of criticisms with many even referring to Todd as an “opportunist”.
Kandi spoke to Jamie Foster-Brown about the unfair reference, and states:
I heard different people like Wendy Williams trying to say he was an opportunist, but I was trying to figure out, “What does she mean by that?”
Todd makes good money doing what he does, and he also has a lot of different business ventures going on outside of that. And he did not want to be on TV or anything.
I think, for AJ, it was more about if people can’t figure out how you make your money, then they always try to say, “Oh, you must not have any.” But you can clearly see that Todd is working. He does well, so no need to question it.

and his baby mama/fiance Erica Dixon
were all smiles in this photo Dixon posted on her instagram during All-Star Weekend in Houston last weekend, but word on the curb is that the two have parted ways.
Sources close to the couple confirmed that Scrappy had finally moved in with his intended and was living a life of per-matrimonal bliss, however things went sour when Erica found out that Scrappy was still running after Shay.
I heard that Scrappy packed up and left after Erica stood her ground about his cheating ways. For the record, Dixon was dayum near broke prior to taking the LHHA gig and apparently now that she’s making her own dough, she’s finally realizing she doesn’t have to deal with Scrappy’s disrespect.
While the two may not be under the same roof any longer, it’s apparent that they both realize the importance of maintaining appearances for the sake of their paycheck.
We’ll most likely see it all play out on the 2nd season of Love & Hip Hop Atlanta. In the meantime, Erica is stacking even more chips through appearance fees and even recently hit the cat walk during New York Fashion Week.
