The Morning Heat’s Rumor Has It
‘Love & Hip Hop: Atlanta’ Producers Take Sides FIRE 2 Castmates
If you were planning on tuning in to the new season of “Love & Hip Hop Atlanta,” chances are you won’t be seeing Benzino and his fiancée, Althea Eaton. According to TMZ, the couple was fired by the series’ producers. Sources close to production say that the pair was given the ax earlier today because they’re being blamed for the ridiculous fight that went down at the reunion show taping. Benzino and Althea; however, believe that this absurd.
TMZ claims that the couple believes they’ve been made into scapegoats for the explosive fight, which we kind of have to agree with. Anyone who witnessed the brawl can see that Joseline was clearly the aggressor. During part two of the reunion the entire cast, with the exception of Joseline and Stevie, sat around and basically expressed that Joseline has (and is) a huge problem. But it these firing reports are true, the production staff completely overlooked that part. Of course with Joseline being one of the show’s main stars, we highly doubt that Mona Scott-Young would willingly let her go.
VH1 reps have yet to comment on the reports, but we’ll continue to keep you posted as new details emerge.

Cash Money Records CEO Birdman recently talked about the publicized delays behind artists Lil Wayne‘s Tha Carter V and Nicki Minaj‘s The Pinkprint and explained why he won’t rush greatness. Birdman said despite his executive position, he does not pin YMCMB artists to specific release dates.
“Wayne, man. He’s so much an artist like that. He change his mind a lot. He feel like he want to do more. Really, they be on they call. It ain’t on me. So whatever Wayne want to do, Nicki want to do. I leave that up to them. I don’t decide on dates and everything. I don’t do none of that.” (XXL Mag)
