Former LHHATL Personality Claims Producers Asked Her to Sleep with Stevie J. for Ratings
By: Amanda Anderson-Niles
“Love and Hip Hop Atlanta” is clearly bringing in the ratings, and even though K. Michelle will no longer appear on the show, the people left on the cast have proven they can draw in the ratings regardless. Stevie J. and his on and off again relationships with Mimi Faust and Joseline Hernandez have been a big focus for the first and second seasons, and now it’s been rumored that Stevie and Joseline are married. Now we told you we won’t believe it until these two can show a marriage certificate, and apparently Mimi Faust feels the same way.
Interestingly enough, Che Mack’s appearance on the second season was a lot smaller than most imagined, and although many expected her to provide lots of drama in Stevie and Joseline’s relationship, she kind of just disappeared from the show all together after a few episodes. And from what she said in a recent interview, that might have been because she didn’t sleep with Stevie J.
Che has been pretty vocal about not sleeping with Stevie J. or even having the desire to do so, but whispers as of late suggest the up and coming artist became a non factor on the show because she refused to sleep with Stevie J. And in a recent interview with 4UMF, Che confirms that the producers asked her to sleep with Stevie J. to give the show a ratings boost. Although she says Mona Scott Young didn’t come out and ask her herself, she believes the idea was actually Mona’s. When asked if Mona was the producer that came out and asked her to sleep with Stevie J., Che Mack says:
“It was not her [Mona Scott Young]. It was brought to me in a different setting, different environments by other producers. She’s not the only producer…she’s the head honcho and she has other people under her doing whatever she needs them to do for her.”
There have been rumors suggesting Che Mack will not be back on the show and some are claiming it’s because she’s talking a little too much about the behind the scenes things that went down when the cameras weren’t rolling. Despite that, Che claims she will do another season if asked. Check out the video below:
