So long to Benzino and fiancee/wife Althea Eaton as “Love & Hip Hop: Atlanta” producers have kicked the couple off the show when they refused to cut Althea a check. Reportedly, after the fight at the reunion show where Althea was attacked by Joseline Hernandez, Althea felt she deserved compensation. Producers disagreed and made it clear – do it for free or you can go.
Production sources say the couple was given the boot Wednesday AM.
The couple claims they were booted from the hit reality series with “no explanation,”
Benzino says it’s obvious he and Althea are being blamed for the fight that occurred on the reunion between them and castmates Joseline Hernandez and Stevie J. Although Althea got her ass whooped, producers sided with Joseline (as she’s simply more entertaining and builds ratings), even though other castmates felt Joseline should have gotten the boot for her outrageous behavior. Joseline not only attacked Althea but also other cast members like Waka’s mother Debra Antey, wife Tammy Rivera, and Stevie’s ex Mimi Faust.
VH1 wouldn’t comment, but it’s pretty obvious. Joseline’s better TV, and that trumps everything especially Benzino & Althea’s twisted ghetto love story.
