While a petition to stop “Love and Hip-Hop: Atlanta” from airing still looms, three of its cast members’ pasts are being exposed. As previously reported, the Mona Scott Young Production is causing controversy for what many believe is the exploitation of a stripper, a bevy of baby mamas and a songstress that critics feel don’t properly represent the metropolitan Atlanta area. In particular, Momma Dee, a standout of the program, is raising eyebrows for her casual recalling of her days as a pimp and a drug dealer.
Even with Dee’s past, she’s managed to remain under the radar, all while her son saw fame with his rap career. However, the same can’t be said for three of the LHHATL cast members who have spent time behind bars. In fact, their arrest records are free and open to the public.
On camera, one cast member, in particular, appears to be squeaky clean and seems almost naive, but her arrest record says otherwise. It turns out that she’s far from oblivious and clearly, is not one to mess with.
