There's a whole lot of drama surrounding VH1's "Love & Hip Hop Atlanta" and according to a new report half of the Season 3 cast members were fired. Media Take Out reports that there's going to be a lot of changes for Season 4 and several cast members were not asked to return.
Among those that were reportedly axed from the show: Scrappy and his girlfriend Erica, Kirk, Rasheeda, Mama Dee and Young Joc. Sources told MTO that Joseline Hernandez, Stevie J, Benzino, Althea, Nikko Smith, Mimi Faust, Karlie Redd, Waka and Tammy are all working out deals for the new season.
According to UrbanIslandz.com, "producers are looking to add some fresh new faces to drive up the ratings for next season."
VH1 has not confirmed the rumors and so far there haven't been any announcements about new cast members. It was previously rumored that Joseline and Stevie J were working on getting their own spinoff show produced by the same people behind "Love & Hip Hop."
MTO previously reported that the couple had already signed contracts and filming for the new show was supposed to begin last month. Sources told the site that the storyline for the untitled spinoff would focus on Joseline's rumored cheating and her alleged drug use.
Last month it was rumored that Joseline and Stevie had split because she was reportedly cheating on him with several different rappers, but MTO claims the two got back together so they could do the new show.
The finale of Season 3 aired on Monday (Aug. 18) with the reunion show premiering on Aug. 25. According to several reports, a nasty fight broke out on the New York City set during the reunion show taping which left one cast member reportedly hospitalized. On July 15, Joseline, Stevie, Mimi, Debra Antney, Benzino, Althea and Tammy all got into a confrontation. Reportedly, Mimi was taken to the hospital after Stevie held her down so Joseline could attack her.
