Traci Steele & DJ Babey Drew Were Fired from LHHATL for Not Being Ratchet Enough
By: Amanda Anderson-Niles
Traci Steele and DJ Babey Drew fired from Love and Hip Hop Atlanta? When it comes to the popularity of VH1’s smash hit “Love and Hip Hop Atlanta,” it’s clear the show is so successful because of its controversial cast. With the ridiculous antics of show favorites Stevie J. and Joseline Hernandez, the show took off instantly after the first episode alone. Then of course the major story line became the “love triangle” between Stevie, Joseline and Mimi Faust; and by season two Lil Scrappy and Erica Dixon easily stole the show with their drama, as well as Rasheeda and Kirk’s Frost explosive marriage problems. It’s been rumored that not everyone would get an invite back for season three, and although reports were originally suggesting that Scrappy and Erica were getting the boot because their story had run its course, it turns out the real on and off couple that got the boot is Traci Steele and DJ Babey Drew. Traci tells Bossip they were fired and they were let go by the producers because they didn’t “turn up” enough:
“Am I doing the next season of “Love and Hip Hop Atlanta?” No. I might do some appearances, I might show my face or DJ but as far as being a cast member, no. I didn’t choose. Apparently me and Drew weren’t as turnt up I guess as the rest of the cast members. We had some sanity, some but not all. We were a little bit more relaxed and more grounded I think. A lot of people come up to me and say ‘You had the most class out of everybody else.’ Well class don’t cut it on “Love and Hip Hop Atlanta.”
“So in order for me and Drew to be on television, we just have to do our own show. But I loved the experience.
“If I’m going to be rejected, I’d rather be rejected for not acting like an a*shole than anything else. I didn’t turn up like they wanted me to.”
