Joseline Hernandez has never been one to hide her feelings, as such it was only a matter of time before her beef with ‘Love & Hip-Hop’ creator Mona Scott Young became public knowledge.
It’s anyone’s guess what specifically led to the fall-out, but the outspoken reality took to Instagram in the midnight hour to announce that she had quit the Atlanta branch of the controversial VH1 franchise:
The move comes after Hernandez spent several days goading Young online and pushing for a sit-down with Oprah (yes, you read right) to settle their (financial?) differences:
As expected, Young has remained mum. She did, however, throw a gentle jab by posting this Oprah speech:
‘Love & Hip-Hop: Atlanta’ has – and continues to be – built on the foundation of the Joseline/Stevie/Mimi dynamic. So, it does beg the question of what will happen moving forward.
Word on the curb is that a lot of the cast have refused to tape with Jos this season (after multiple fall-outs), something viewers have both noticed and complained about.
Should she indeed be “done,” where does it leave the show more broadly? Are the remaining cast strong enough to command high viewership?
What’s more, is Joseline’s established enough to go it alone? She has proven popular guest-hosting on ‘The Real,’ but public meltdowns such as this are hardly likely to make her an enticing prospect to networks that are traditionally more conservative.
