Shay Johnson Says She And Scrappy Are Still Dealing With Each Other
Although there was certainly more than enough love triangle drama to last a lifetime on this most recent season of Love & Hip Hop Atlanta, one person who wasn’t in the mix on camera was Scrappy’s ex-boo thang Shay Johnson.
Despite Shay’s absence from the show this time around, she says she and Scrappy are still “dealing with” each other and she didn’t hesitate to elaborate on that, as well as why she didn’t do the show, her thoughts on Bambi and more during a recent exclusive interview with The Jasmine Brand. Check out a few excerpts below:
On why she didn’t do LHHATL this season:
I didn’t want to deal with certain drama on the show. I tried to go in a direction that’s best for me.
I’m not saying I would never do the show. Its just the situation on the show and what was going on with Scrappy and I outside of the show, it was just too much going on. I didn’t want to be apart of it. I was exposed in a different light, first and second season, as if I was a sidepiece and I was not finna be like that.
On her current relationship with Scrappy:
Its not like I have anything against Scrappy. Scrappy and I are actually still dealing with each other. We still do. We were dealing with each other throughout the show off and on. There’s a lot that goes on outside of the show that the public doesn’t get to see. No I wasn’t on the show at all with Scrappy but I dealt with Scrappy off and on, the entire season. He still ain’t went nowhere. At the end of the day with Scrappy and I will always have a friendship because that’s how it started. We didn’t start off dating or anything like that. We didn’t have any type of relationship on a personal level up until just before Love and Hip Hop season one. So, we were literally best friends, but you never know what can happen, I don’t predict the future, but it is, what it is, at this point.
A lot of times I wish I never done anything sexual with Scrappy. No type of relationship on that level at all because it really destroyed our friendship. He would tell me everything, I knew everything that man was doing, but once we started dating, it just turned and it’s been destroyed, to me, the friendship ever since. We tried to get it back but we’re attracted to each other and we did a lot more outside of just being a friend. I do care for him; I have much love for him, forever. But being with him in the future, I can’t predict that. My focus is somewhere else. He ain’t going nowhere and I don’t care who knows about it.
For once, it sounds like Mama Dee was right about Scrappy having “too many eggs” in his basket at one time! Shay also spoke on what she thinks about Bambi and Scrappy’s relationship before later revealing what happened during a confrontation with Bambi. Hit the flip to hear what she had to say.
On “certain people” in Scrappy’s life not approving of their relationship:
It’s like he has certain people in his life that don’t want him to affiliate with me on no levels because they are intimidated by the relationship that we have and the energy we have with one another. And I get it but its funny how these hoes out here, they will sleep with anybody else man but when they think they have one, they try to get mad when somebody does it to them. What goes around comes around all day. You want to be a little whore and hop around in somebody else’s relationship; it’s going to happen to you. I don’t know, the few people don’t want him around me but clearly he doesn’t listen, clearly because he stay on my line.
On what she thought about Scrappy’s relationship with Bambi:
I laughed, I didn’t see the entire show but I seen enough episodes to see that it was bullshit. You said you want to be this faithful man on TV but outside of TV you throwing those text messages and you want to see me and you’re having sexual relations. You’re just like anybody else, you want your cake and eat it too.
I know what I’m dealing with, I know how he is so I know how to deal with him now. He broke my heart; he did what he did to me, first time on you, second time on me. I’m not going to allow myself to be put in that position to be screwed again. Y’all seen the TV show, you see how he did me on national television. Date me and propose to another female so if you think you can have this man be faithful to you, like come on. He’s not ready to settle down and once you understand what you’re dealing with, it won’t be all the drama. Yeah there were some subliminal messages back and forth on Instagram, cute, but who cares. There’s no drama where if I see her something’s going to happen or if she sees me, it’s nothing like that. There’s jealousy involved when it comes to women and there is a man.
There were words at one point but that’s it.
If you tuned into the reunion show, then you already know that Bambi claimed she and Scrappy’s relationship wasn’t “that serious” and that she wasn’t looking to marry him, but something tells us she won’t be too happy about Shay admitting that they’re still getting it in.
