‘Love & Hip Hop: Atlanta’ — Producers Take Sides, Fire Benzino & Althea (Details)
Benzino and fiancee Althea Eaton think “Love & Hip Hop: Atlanta” should air on Animal Planet … because they think producers are making them scapegoats.
Production sources tell us the couple was given the boot Wednesday AM … with no explanation.
Benzino says it’s obvious he and Althea are being blamed for the fight between them and castmates Joseline Hernandez and Stevie J … a brawl that proved irresistible for other cast members.
TMZ broke the story … Althea sued Joseline, claiming she started the fight while she was high on crack.
Although Althea got her ass whooped … producers sided with Joseline, even though other castmates felt Joseline should have gotten the boot.
VH1 wouldn’t comment, but it’s pretty obvious. Joseline’s better TV, and that trumps everything.
