      The funny thing is ratings have been dropping significantly since Lily’s been a main cast member. She’s why a lot of people stopped watching. Yall say y’all love her on social media but the ratings tell a different story. Either way, I doubt she’s going to stay away. The producers of this show love ignoring logic.

          Here’s a link:

          Ratings have hit a historic low this season and the decline has been consistent since Lily became a main cast member. Lily isn’t the star y’all think she is. She’s toxic on the show, in the shop and toxic to ratings. Yall live in some kind of fantasy land if you think she’s some ratings draw. She never was and never will be because most of the people that actually watch the show are black and old enough to not be okay with her using the N word.

        Exactly. Ratings are already bad. And Lily is probably a main reason why. I think they are going to keep her on this show some kind of way though smdh. They need to bring Kat back.

        The ratings are dropping because the old cast is boring. Lily makes the show interesting..I got tired f old Charmaine and the rest of the .OG crew getting drunk and acting stupid.

          Ratings were much higher before Lily was a cast member. Clearly, the old cast was a hit. And ratings dropped significantly since Lily’s been a main cast member. If she makes the show like you claim, why are the ratings dropping every week? And what do you think Lily does on the show? She drinks, uses the n word and fights. She’s not some example of maturity and class.

    I actually haven’t watched this season because of her. I just read the recaps, I was really going to give the show another chance but these comments making it seem like she coming back so I will have to wait and see. Looks like they MAY bring Kat back since they mentioning her all of a sudden.

    This is some BS Lilly actually did the rite thing this time and they aren’t going to look at the tape. Grade A bullsh-t

      First off, Lily didn’t have to get into it wit Adrianna. If she had to literally walk to her, then that means the drink b-tch wasn’t that close to her booth. Lily wanted to fight. Lily could’ve ignored her dumba-s.

    Lily stand up for herself!!! She not the problem. When she tapped that a-s of Charmaine, now she a problem!!!

    Lily has always been the problem. Her and Junior. They have started and been in more fights than everyone else combined. I’m glad she’s gone. Now I can care about this show again 🤷🏾‍♀️.

    I totally have to agree with you. I stopped watching 2 or 3 seasons ago, when the entire crew was accepting of this low-life woman.(Lily) Except for Charmaine. She was the only one on the entire show, who stood up to Lily, calling everyone n—ers to their face.
