Grandpa Benzino was set on acting like an idiot towards producers following his reunion show scuffle with Stevie J by yelling at them backstage with claims of favoritism and even violently threatening a producer on camera as they filmed after-show interviews, but unfortunately for him it looks like his misplaced ego and pride has gotten him and his sexy wifey Althea drop-kicked back to skid row as news comes down that the couple was not asked to return for season 4 of the hit show..
Ima miss seeing Althea’s pretty ass face on the small screen next season I gotta say, but not being able to watch grandpa Benzino gossip with other grown men on TV like teenage school-girls anymore is perfectly cool with me… Who’s the replacement?
Benzino and fiancee Althea Eaton think “Love & Hip Hop: Atlanta” should air on Animal Planet because they think producers are making them scapegoats. Production sources tell us the couple was given the boot Wednesday AM with no explanation. Benzino says it’s obvious he and Althea are being blamed for the fight between them and castmates Joseline Hernandez and Stevie J … a brawl that proved irresistible for other cast members.
TMZ broke the story … Althea sued Joseline, claiming she started the fight while she was high on crack. Although Althea got her ass whooped … producers sided with Joseline, even though other castmates felt Joseline should have gotten the boot. VH1 wouldn’t comment, but it’s pretty obvious. Joseline’s better TV, and that trumps everything. -TMZ
