Diamond and Soulja Boy Not Joining ‘Love & Hip Hop Atlanta’
Although there are rumors that taping has begun for a second season of Mona Scott-Young’s hit reality show, “Love & Hip Hop Atlanta,” two new characters are apparently not joining the cast. Rapper Diamond, whose ex-boyfriend, Lil Scrappy, rekindled his romance with Erica Dixon on the show, was rumored to be cast alongside her new beau, Soulja Boy. If true, the drama could become especially heated considering that Diamond reportedly left Lil Scrappy for the SODMG rapper. According to several reports, Soulja confirmed his casting and said that he and Diamond would replace rapper Rasheeda and her husband, Kirk. The happily married couple were said to be too “boring” for the program.
In response to the ongoing chatter about their casting, Diamond posted a series of tweets in response. “Rumors lol,” Ms. 32 Flavaz wrote to her over 500,000 followers. She then outright denied the casting altogether.
Before this week’s news, Diamond previously told rolling out that a stint on the show was completely out of the question. Instead, she’d rather have her own reality program focused solely on herself. “I thought about doing an hour-long special leading up to my album,” said the rapper. “As long as I have control and production credits of the outcome, that would be something that I would do first and then I would think about doing an actual show down the line.”
Interestingly enough, Soulja Boy has been tweeting about a possible TV program. “Souljaboytvshow,” wrote the rapper. No further details have been released. –danielle canada
