Love & Hip Hop Atlanta Cast Forced To Stop Fighting
Joseline may be stingy with that kootie kat, but she’s generous with those fists — and Vh1 higher ups have had enough. After avertisers have pulled out of the program right and left over the “Love & Hip Hop: Atlanta” cast’s near-constant rumbles and smackdowns, show producers have stepped in to make sure that Joseline, Stevie, and the rest of the crew keep their paws to themselves…on-screen at least. Via TMZ:
“Love & Hip Hop: Atlanta” has more punches than Mayweather-Pacquiao, but the show’s producers are dead serious about putting an end to all the fighting … even if it pisses off fans. Collective WTF, right?
Production sources tell us the ATL ladies and gents were forced to sign docs agreeing to put their manicured claws (and fists) away … after major advertisers started complaining. Show execs flew to Atlanta 2 weeks ago to lay down the law.
We’re told all cast members who brawl during taping will be cut from the episode without pay and suspended. They could also face possible termination.
It’s a risky move, since ‘LHHA’ has become VH1’s most popular show, by far — and let’s face it, fights are part of its winning formula.
But the threat of hardcore punishment seems to be working. We hear the cast has resorted to screaming matches because nobody wants to lose their money — the definition of a true thug.
So no more fades…but they’ll still be cursing each other out like demons. Will you still be tuning in??
