Will Diamond and Soulja Boy be on Love and Hip Hop Atlanta Season 2? Diamond and Soulja Boy are rumored to have been officially confirmed for the second season of Love And Hip Hop Atlanta. This “confirmation” was from the usually non credible MTO, so we have been extremely reluctant to report the news. From what we do know about Love And Hip Hop Atlanta, Diamond was part of the original cast of the first season of the VH1 smash hit. But once Diamond got word that Lil Scrappy, Momma Dee, and Erica had also signed on; the female rapper officially backed out of the cast. Diamond later confirmed to The Breakfast Club that she walked away from Love And Hip Hop Atlanta because she didn’t want to relive the drama she had with Mama Dee and Lil Scrappy. She says she’s past what happened between her and Lil Scrappy, but for some reason at the time of the show, Lil Scrappy and Momma Dee weren’t. And that was clear by some of Momma Dee’s interesting choice of words about Diamond that she made on the show.
While we’re still not 100% sure if Diamond and Soulja Boy have signed on for the second season of Love And Hip Hop Atlanta, a little birdie did tell us how Mona Scott Young allegedly managed to get both on the show when Diamond was so adamant about not joining the cast.
According to this person, Mona Scott Young has been trying to get Diamond and Lil Scrappy on the show since the first season took off. The person also alleges that Diamond thought she didn’t need the show to get her solo rap career going, but since it hasn’t taken off fast enough, she began to reconsider joining the show. After watching all the cast members from Love And Hip Hop Atlanta blow up, she now realizes it would be a great boost for her career. After having several meetings with Mona Scott Young, Diamond and Soulja Boy agreed to join Love And Hip Hop Atlanta under one restriction: they don’t want any interactions with Momma Dee, Lil Scrappy, and Erica. That means absolutely no camera time with either. Instead, they just want the cameras to follow them as they work on their careers and maintaining their relationship. They also said Diamond is really serious about not looking like a fool on television, or jeopardizing her relationship with Soulja Boy.
Again, just take this piece of gossip with a grain of salt. We still haven’t been able to get a confirmation from a reliable source that Diamond and Soulja Boy will be on the next season of Love And Hip Hop Atlanta. And not too long ago, the rumor mill was claiming that Diamond and Soulja boy would be replacing Kirk and Rasheeda. And that rumor ended up being shot down by Mona Scott Young herself. Not to mention that the last time someone asked Mona Scott Young if Diamond and Soulja Boy would be on the show, she said it had not been confirmed. And to be fair, “that has not been confirmed” can be producer talk for “we’re working on it, but they haven’t signed the contract yet.”
So we’re still keeping our ears open on this one.
