Diamond REVEALS Why She's Not Doing "Love & Hip Hop: ATL"

 

Rapper Diamond is speaking out about VH1's upcoming "Love & Hip Hop" spinoff and revealing why she won't appear on the show. Despite rumors that she only quit filming because she's scared of her ex-boyfiend Lil Scrappy's mama.  Deets inside....

Reports hit the net that Diamond (formerly of Crime Mob) was prepping to appear on the "LAHH ATL spinoff" alongside Rasheeda, Stevie J and others.  But now, word has it she won't be appearing afterall, and singer K. Michelle will be replacing her.

During a chat with the Street Disciplez (Ei8ht and Mara), Diamond dished on why she won't be on "Love & Hip Hop: ATL."  In case you were wondering.  Here are the highlights:

ON WHETHER OR NOT SHE WILL APPEAR ON "LOVE & HIP-HOP: ATLANTA":

"No I will not be on the show. Absolutely not."

ON WHETHER OR NOT TALK OF SCRAPPY AND HIS MOTHER APPEARING ON THE SHOW INFLUENCED HER DECISION TO STAR ON THE SHOW:

"Well I'm not sure who all is on the show, but I just know that right now I've been focused on my album and just being surrounded around positive things and positive people, and I just can't play with my career like that. Me being an artist in the middle of my career, you never know how TV can go. It can go good or it can go bad, and I just choose not to gamble with my career like that, you know."

"Actually I prayed about it 'cause I was going back and forth about it, and something just didn't sit right for me to go down that particular path right now. I'm not saying that I won't do reality television somewhere down the line, but as of now, I just feel like my music is my foundation, and that's what people want to hear from me. Me and my life through my music, not reality television."

ON WHETHER SHE RECORDED ANY EPISODES FOR THE SHOW:

"No, I actually took about, I think two meetings, and that was really it."

ON THE RUMOR THAT SHE QUIT THE SHOW AFTER GOING INTO THE BATHROOM TO PRAY WHILE FILMING AN EPISODE:

"Uh uh, that's hilarious! Are you serious? No, I'm the type of person that's all or nothing, so if I were to sign up for it...I would've started it, and I would've finished it. But I hadn't even began filming. You know I had two meetings that I took with the network, and that was it."

ON "LOVE & HIP-HOP" EXECUTIVE PRODUCER MONA SCOTT-YOUNG BEING UPSET WITH HER FOR DECIDING TO NOT DO THE SHOW:

"That is funny. I don't know, like, I know the network really wanted me, so they probably could be disappointed 'cause I decided to pull out. I don't know if there's ever been a situation where someone that they were really banking on being on the show pull out like that, so I really don't know, but that's not nothing I'm interested in."

ON WHETHER TALK OF MONA SCOTT-YOUNG AND THE OTHER PRODUCERS OF THE SHOW SETTING UP SITUATIONS INFLUENCE HER DECISION TO NOT APPEAR:

"I definitely took that into consideration; I'm not going to lie to you. I can't play with my life...it's real out here, you know what I mean? And I would hate for somebody to get hurt and to mess up my career, and I'm just going in a positive direction right now, so I don't even want to play those type of games and see if that is true or not."

Everybody who is saying 'no

Everybody who is saying 'no one is checking for your music' are crabs in the barrel... You do not know every music artist that is putting out music, you do not determine who is worthy to know and who is not, you are not all going to underground concerts and developing artists as an A&R, also obviously she is known on a public platform as VH-1 wanted her for their new show...can we not congratulate her for not being a sheep and following a check? Atleast she is about her business and practices morals and values...

Actually she has a point.

Actually she has a point. While some of you may act like you don't know who she is, she is doing very well for herself. So, I can see why she doesn't want to be a part of a reality show. You coons just like to see people act a fool and then talk shit about them. Not everybody is down for reality tv. Kudos to you Diamond.

I only know of her thru a

I only know of her thru a recent foreclosure and car repo, so really, alot of folks don't know who she is beyond that. Also if she's doing so well, why were her assets repossessed? I do applaud for her turning down this modern day minstrel though, I'm sure she could've used the money, but all money ain't good money.

Not every entertainer is meant to be world wide. Losers are always bringing up somebody else's downfall. Shut the hell up!

You took the words right off

You took the words right off of my keypad! Thank you! People act like Crime Mob were international, multiplatinum superstars. L&HH ATL is about as local as you can get. Stevie J. is the only name that rings any bells outside of Atlanta, and he is so 10 years ago. Most of these rappers have boyfriends/are on the DL, and we know that would never fly in the world of flip flop.

I think she should have done

I think she should have done the show. No1 is really checking 4 her rap career. And the last bit of juicy news we heard abt her was Scarppy's mama putting her on blast for getting bu++ injections & her dating Soulja Boy. I really think the show woulda boosted her career. But, if she prayed abt it, follow ur intuition & God's guidance

good for her. I understand

good for her. I understand where she is coming form. although, where is this music career she talks about?

Good for her. Too many

Good for her. Too many "celebrities" go on these shows chasing fame and just make fools of themselves. Ex.1) Meeka Claxton last season on Basketball Wives, Ex.2) Erica on Love & HipHop. Sometimes your on the losing end of a deal (or fist fight lol), and I don't blame her for being cautious. s/n: i've never heard any of her music and I doubt anyone will be waiting on it.

not a true fan of diamond.

not a true fan of diamond. BUT I think more girls who are on that show should be thinking like her. Hell, all of those reality shows. The producers CLEARLY manufacture the drama by setting them up. It's a shame. Shaunie and Mona are puppet masters for real. Evelyn is TRULY looking like a wild animal this season and its so disgusting and its so obvious why Chad is with her. She has "good a** p***y" (his words). Dont even get me started on Chrissy. BULLY. Who HONESTLY has time to sit around and think abou what another female is doing when you've made it clear that you don't fool with her period or anymore. Grow up, Ladies and stop letting people who don't care about you control and entice you with a check.

If she's serious about her

If she's serious about her music, then she made the right decision. Love & Hip Hop has nothing to do with music, nothing to do with artistry. It's simply black women arguing, fighting and looking like a bunch of damn crazy baboons and orangutangs. I applaud Diamond for understanding that and for not allowing herself to be exploited, negatively, just for a little limelight. Others should follow suit. In fact the public should stop watching these b.s. "reality shows" as they are setting black women back 50 years.

Gurl...if you scared, say you

Gurl...if you scared, say you scared! Just kidding! However, Lil Scrappy's mom is nothing to play with. I commend her for shutting down any potential drama before it had a chance to pop off.
