There are times when you really wish you did not have to say it was so and this is definitely one of them. Yes, you read the title right Benzino and his “wifey” Althea have been axed from VH-1’s hit show, “Love & Hip-Hop Atlanta!” Earlier this year the couple became at odds with cast mates, Joseline Hernandez and Stevie J. After months of hearsay, messy tweets, and outrageous Instagram posts the couples fought one another in an all out brawl during the third reunion special!
As you recall, the fight quickly escalated involving other cast members including rapper Waka Flocka’s wife Tammy Rivera and the mother of Stevie J’s daughter, Mimi Faust. Despite the shenanigans only Benzino and Althea have been axed from the show despite rumors Joseline was on a crack induced rage during the rampage. TMZ reported the following; “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.
Perhaps since Joseline is allegedly pregnant now (a great storyline for Season 4), and she and Stevie are the stars of the series, network executives were willing to let go of “‘Zino and Thi Thi” than their resident drama king and queen. We wish Benzino and Althea the best of luck.
