MediaTakeOut.com EXCLUSIVELY learned that Joseline will NOT be returning to Love And Hip Hop Atlanta – so they got a new person to take her place.
According to our TOP SNITCH – the producers brought on ERICA MENA – to bring the drama to the new season of LHHATL.
There have been rumblings of Mena's return since the last quarter of 2017 but the rumors have been confirmed by our sources!
Upon her dramatic exit, Mena never counted out the possibility of returning to the franchise. During a conversation with VH1, she talked about her departure from the series:
"I wasn’t sad to see the show go on without me. If anything it was boring and I think the audience agrees that it’s extremely boring without me. This past year I’ve had time to get my life back in the sense where now my recent [relationship] status has everyone wondering, “Are they together? Are they not together?” I feel like this relationship isn’t on television, so I don’t owe the world an answer but it just proves that people are interested in my life.
What people fail to realize is that when I first got approached to do Love & Hip Hop it because I was supposed to be spinning off and becoming the headliner for [another Love & Hip Hop] city which wasn’t New York. I feel like me and the network have established a relationship so who is to say what could be next. I feel like I am built for this world and I’ve always been a very open person. The world isn’t done watching Erica Mena on TV and I know that."
Mena kept us hooked during LHHNY with her turbulent relationships with cast members Rich Dollaz (currently embroiled in an affair with Anais) and Cyn Santana (who is boo'ed up with former castmate Joe Budden) as well as her ability to lay hands with the quickness!
Do you think Mena will be able to fill Joseline's big boots? We think so.
Welcome back, Mena!
