It appears that the seemingly never-ending soap opera/love affair between Love & Hip Hop Atlanta stars Erica Dixon and Lil’ Scrappy has officially come to an end. Scrappy has been rather open about his relationship with Basketball Wives: LA star Bambi and Erica can’t seem to get enough of her new model beau, O’Shea Russell. During a recent interview with Mara The Hip Hop Socialite, Erica spilled on her blossoming relationship with O’Shea, what her daughter Emani thinks of him and reacted to those ridiculous homewrecker rumors initiated by Scrappy at the reunion show. Check out her interview highlights below.
On making things official with her new boo, O’Shea Russell:
“We met over Memorial Day weekend, and we was just cool, just friends. You know, just talking and kicking it. One thing led to another, and we both started developing feelings for each other, so we just made it official.”
“He’s recovering right now from a car accident; he got hit by a car, so right now, he’s just healing from a car accident. He was actually walking and got hit. He’s doing a lot better, a lot better.”
On what she loves most about him:
“He’s a man of God, that’s what I love the most about him; he’s a man of God. You know we pray together, and we just keep God first and foremost in our relationship and in everything we do.”
On if he’s met her daughter, Emani:
“Yes, he’s met Emani, and she likes him, so I’m happy about that.”
On Scrappy claiming that she was pregnant by a married man:
“The crazy thing about it is on the reunion show, Scrappy said Erica was messing with a married man. Shay does interviews and says Erica was messing with a married man and got pregnant by a married man and got an abortion. She took it to a whole other level. Then again, I keep her relevant, so she has to keep my name in her mouth. But for Scrappy, that was like an all time low. It’s like really, you want to get on her and say this? And in the past, he has said and done stuff, and I’ve told him like that’s below the belt. Certain stuff you do, if you’re going to do it, it’s plain out to me, it’s just hatred. And to me, that means that you don’t want nothing to do with this person if you’re going to try and lie and really throw somebody under the bus, you don’t want nothing to do with them period. He has a tendency of doing things like that, and coming back and apologizing, which he did. Because right after the taping of the reunion, of course you guys didn’t know, he apologized. He was just like, ‘I’m sorry – I was hurt. I just let my emotions get the best of me. Everybody thinks you’re perfect.’ I never said I was perfect, but never have I messed with a married man and got pregnant and had an abortion. Like come on, really?”
On Momma Dee’s refusal to leave the reunion show taping during Emani’s emergency:
“We don’t talk; I don’t talk to her, period. At all, so my thing is…as you know when my daughter, during the taping of the reunion, my daughter got attacked by a dog, and I’m about being real. I mean attacked and bitten on her lip to where she had to get, it was either 6 or 7 stitches. If you put on this image where you’re just grandmother of the year, for you to say, ‘oh I’m not leaving; I’m going to stay and tape the reunion.’ You know, we up and left. They didn’t show it, but I ran off stage when I found out that happened to my daughter. You know yourself how she puts on about my child, and if you loved her that much, and she was just so important, you would have left too. That’s just how I feel. I mean, she didn’t move. My mom left, I left, and of course, Scrappy left. I haven’t heard from her, she hasn’t called and ask how she’s doing, I mean nothing. Then again, she does see her dad, so I don’t know if she’s reached out to Scrappy or what, but she never reached out as far as I know.”
What’s a Lil Scrappy?
That’s probably what Erica Dixon is thinking these days now that she’s got a fine new man on her arm and seems to have moved on for good from Lil Scrappy. The rapper just had way too many issues and meddling mommas in his corner.
After basically telling Scrappy that their continuous on-again, off-again relationship is just not going to work at the end of season two of Love and Hip Hop Atlanta, she seems to be finding love again with a male model by the name of Oshea Russell. The buff cutie has been seen all up and through Erica’s Instagram and has posted pictures of her on his own page calling her “his woman” and on one particular photo, captioned it with this:
“in spite of it all GODS will shall prevail. Thanking GOD for @msericadixon being in my life… #MYWOMAN #BESTFRIEND #MYHEART #MYEVERYTHING… they talking about us so we must be doing something #RIGHT”
They’re definitely a cute couple and she scored herself a very buff and beautiful brotha. But we’ll just have to wait and see how things turn out because you never know who is with these folks for love and who’s just trying to get some shine on their reality TV show…Good luck Erica!

A few weeks ago Love & Hip Hop Atlanta’s Shay “Buckeey” Johnson ran up to New York radio station, Power 105.1, eager to spill some “tea” that she thought she’d learned during a recent LHHATL reunion show taping. According to Shay, during the taping, her nemesis Erica Dixon was exposed by her ex-fiancé and co-star, Scrappy, for getting pregnant by a married man.
“Looks can be deceiving on TV when they edit you a certain way. They edit me as the side-piece, they edit her [Erica] as the happy homemaker. But as you can see, yesterday Scrappy made an announcement at the reunion and I can’t wait for y’all to hear it. [He said] she [Erica] was messing around with a married man and got pregnant by him. That’s what he said on the reunion yesterday,” Shay excitedly told the hosts.
While Shay seemed to be on some kind of high that was triggered by the mere thought of Erica being “exposed,” Scrappy recently let all of the air out of that balloon when he confessed that he made up the entire story out of “anger.”
“We was doing the little reunion thing and it got a little heated. you know Erica said some things about me that was kinda negative and wasn’t right. So you know, I was just acting out in the heat of things you know what I’m saying? Just going HAM, just going cold f-cking turkey. Not that it was right for her to say anything, but it wasn’t right for me to answer back with that. She wasn’t never messing with no married guy and I know she was never pregnant by nobody. I would have been stopped messing with her. For real, like it would have never gone this long. I would have been said something you feel me? But um, I just want to tone that down because that is a lie,” he told Vlad TV
As for his future with Shay, he says their relationship is a done deal.
“No, I have not been messing with no Shay. Even though I don’t have no hard feelings against nobody, because I don’t hold grudges. But nobody was really messing with me when I was in my little rehab siutation. I had one person that was. Shout out to Bambi, she came to visit me a couple of times. Erica, shout out to her. She came and brought my daughter to see me. I was able to see my daughter and Erica for father’s day,” he continued.
“I keep a distance from Shay because she wasn’t really instrumental in my rehab situation.”

Love & Hip Hop Atlanta star Erica Dixon has been through her share of drama with her daughter’s father Lil Scrappy and his friend with benefits, Shay Buckeey Johnson. And according to Shay, the drama will not end with the show’s season finale because things got even more heated during the show’s reunion show taping. The former Flavor of Love 2 contestant recently dropped by Power 105.1 for an interview with the Breakfast Club. During the interview, she claimed we are about to witness some shocking revelations that were made about her sworn enemy when the Love & Hip Hop Atlanta reunion show airs in a couple of weeks.
“Looks can be deceiving on TV when they edit you a certain way. They edit me as the side-piece, they edit her [Erica] as the happy homemaker. But as you can see, yesterday Scrappy made an announcement at the reunion and I can’t wait for y’all to hear it. [He said] she [Erica] was messing around with a married man and got pregnant by him. That’s what he said on the reunion yesterday,” Shay confidently boasted to the Breakfast Club hosts.
“She pregnant right now?” Charlemagne asked.
“No, this is something that happened not too long ago,” Shay replied.
“You can’t be giving all of the information away now,” Charlemagne warned.
“I don’t care. I wanted to release that. I couldn’t wait to get that out,” Shay said.
I’m not too sure about this one. It seems like Shay would do or say anything to drag Erica’s name through the mud and get a little shine. Once you hear the full interview, you’ll notice that about 98% of it is about Erica. As for Scrappy, I suppose we’ll have to wait and see what happens when the reunion show airs.

“We Didn’t Give A Damn About Flav”: Shay “Buckeey” Johnson Talks Faking Her Feelings For Flavor Flav, And Trust Issues Caused By Lil Scrappy
If you’ve been engulfed in the foolery that is reality TV over the past few years (and we’re guilty of course of falling in the trap too), then I’m sure you know a lot about Shay “Buckeey” Johnson. She was introduced to us as one of many thirsty women vying for the “love” and attention of Flavor Flav on one of Vh1′s biggest reality shows, Flavor of Love 2. And since then, she’s found her way back on the reality TV scene by finding herself in a torrid love triangle with rapper Lil Scrappy and his on-again, off-again lady, Erica Dixon. In an interview with TheJasmineBrand, Johnson opened up about her time on Flavor of Love, where she admits to not really being into him at all, and how her up and down friendship/cuddle buddy/boo-ship with Scrappy has affected her. Here are the tidbits that had us talking:
About Her Time On Flavor of Love 2
“It was a show and when I was on the show Flavor Of Love, I was trying to win the title as the winner. Because we were told during the taping that the longer you’re on the show the more relevant you will be. So we didn’t give a damn about Flav. ‘Flav you’re cool peoples,’ but it wasn’t about that. It was a show and I’m a very competitive person and I was trying to win the title. That’s it. Not him.”
On The Relationship That Went To Hell With Lil Scrappy And How That Affected Her
“The way Scrappy did me, he did find a way to cause a lot of trust issues within me – and that’s on me. So I’m not too quick to jump into relationships at this point. But there is a little somebody that I kinda been seeing but I’m not willing to move fast. You just never know where it will go. I’m not going to mention his name but there is someone.”
On How Those Trust Issues Are Keeping Her From Jumping Back Into Dating
“Let me tell you what I like. I like tall men. I like articulate, intelligent men. I like men who don’t like to go out SO much. I don’t want to rush anything because I have trust issues because it’s unfair to bring my past into my future. But that’s exactly what I’m doing because I don’t trust anybody. From friends to cousin, manager…the relationship-wise, when you’ve been hurt by somebody you’ve put all of your trust into, it’s not easy to jump into something else. I’m either in or I’m out. I don’t half-step anything. I love and I love extremely hard and I don’t think anything is wrong with that, it’s just about finding somebody compatible with me.”
And What Her Thoughts Are On Erica Dixon, Who She Recently Had A Fight With
“I don’t hate her. I don’t know her. I don’t choose to know her at all. I think that she’s ignorant in certain situations, but that’s just who she is. But I don’t hate her at all – my life goes on.”
Well there you have it. From the video interview, Erica definitely seems to be a very smart young lady, just not when it comes with messing with folks like Scrappy. But then again, who hasn’t been there when they’ve been in love? What do you think of her comments?
Doesn’t it seem like Momma Dee is always meddling and up to no good? Her most recent demonstration of questionable behavior came in the form of an interview. The self-proclaimed “Queen of the South” sat down for an interview with Mara of 4UMF and let’s just say, she held nothing back. During the chat she claimed that Erica has been “abusive” to her son in the past and that she gave up her rights to take Scrappy to court for child support in exchange for a spot on Love & Hip Hop Atlanta. Check out a few excerpts from the interview below.
On Erica’s BMM shoot:
“No [she hasn't seen it]. I really don’t care to see my granddaughter’s mother in any other light but being my granddaughter’s mother. When you got a person that wasn’t raised by their mama and don’t have no real values, they tend to wander like that, you know what I’m saying.”
On Erica being abusive to Scrappy:
“People don’t know that Erica is very physically abusive. She’s jumped on my son, and hit him and stuff. And what mother will like a woman that does that off camera? Then people want to point fingers ’cause the TV don’t show you that, and then say, ‘Momma Dee, why you don’t like Erica?’ Well, where’s your child and daughter? Wouldn’t you protect your child even if they were grown if your daughter came home and she was jumped on and had black eyes by a man? Wouldn’t you ladies and gentlemen get mad if your 25-year-old son or 29-year-old son had a wife or a girlfriend and he came home and his arm broke and face is all scratched up for nothing ’cause she having fits like ya’ll saw on TV? Would you like her? Would you accept her into the fold? No!”“Yes she is [physically abusive]. Ya’ll just keep watching the show, you going to see more, ’cause her and her mama shows out with their alley back ways.”
“One time he told me he woke up when Emoni was like in her months old, she’s 8 now. He woke up like 3 in the morning, and she was standing over him. I’m like, ‘Wow, really?’ I told him, ‘Please baby, please, just leave her.’ I told him to leave her alone then, and then when Diamond came into the picture, he left her alone for 4 years. And then when Diamond pulled that crazy mess with Soulja Boy, she snuck back in. When that mess happened with Diamond, Erica came over to Scrappy’s mansion, and I’m like, ‘So what’s up with this?’ ‘Ah, I’m just trying to have this back because he is the father of my daughter.’ But see the Beyotch was really trying to tip in to the kingdom. But see it’s just like God. You can’t go to him without going through the Son. You can’t come into the kingdom unless you come to the mama.”“Yeah [Scrappy waking up to Erica standing over him] ’cause he had been cheating on her, and I’m not justifying cheating ’cause I’m a woman, and I’ve been hurt. But what I’m saying, that’s evil. That made me think, what you doing? You finta’ stand over him with a knife or something? You crazy!”
“This season, she’s not watching, and I pray and hope that the people that are around my granddaughter, Princess Emoni, are not telling her anything. ‘Cause when she comes around me, she was around me a couple of days ago, all day at the poolside, and she’s just a loving, caring granddaughter.”
“When I hear her say stuff like that [that Scrappy's broke], it hurts me, because if it wasn’t for him, she wouldn’t be on a show. Because VH1 asked him, he could pick any woman. He chose her to help her. And you can quote me on this one, I’ll put my hand on the Bible – the understanding was that if he put her on the show, that she’d take him off child support. She signed the papers to get put on the show, to take him off child support. He said, ‘I’m only paying you $3500 a month, but you making plenty now gong on gigs and walk-throughs.’ So he did her a real good favor ’cause I got 2 kids by 2 different men, and they ain’t never put me on like that. So you see that she is not even grateful, to do him like that.”“He stopped [paying child support], but when they broke up, this engagement over, she talking about, ‘I’ll see you back in court.’ No Erica, you signed off for taking him off. You can’t go back baby. You see how the double-dipping? You see how evil she is? Just ’cause he don’t want to be with you no more, you want to make this man miserable. And the only reason why you on the show is because he said, ‘If I put you on, you sign taking me off because I’m paying you $3500, but you can make more.’ She signed the paperwork, and VH1 has a copy. So I’m telling you now, that’s double-dipping. You got to know, she’s money hungry, and she doesn’t care if she destroys my son.”
On the status of Scrappy and Shay’s relationship:
“Yes, he’s single, and he’s talked to Shay off camera and said this is me. She doesn’t like it, but however, her platform is to stay down and be that friend.”
Hot ghetto mess! In all my days, I’ve never witnessed the matriarch of a family rally behind her son’s side chick instead of her grandchild’s mother.

Scrappy Responds To Accusations That His Proposal Was For Publicity, ‘ I Spent A Lot Of Money On The Ring For God’s Sake!’
Erica Dixon walked away from Love & Hip Hop Atlanta’s season one reunion special on cloud nine. With a beautiful new engagement ring and her rapper baby daddy acting like he had some kind of sense, it really seemed like her hood fairytale was finally coming together. Unfortunately, the pre-marital bliss was short-lived and the entire engagement was called off only a handful of episodes into season two. The reality star recently opened up about her decision to call off the engagement and revealed that she strongly believes Scrappy only proposed to her to save his “image.”
“We’re co-parenting. I definitely called off the engagement. Clearly Scrappy wasn’t ready. I feel like the whole proposal at the end of the day was to save his image. It was all about how he looked to the people. So that’s why I believe he proposed at the end at the reunion because he was getting so much hate from fans and I think it was just too much for him to deal with. I feel like as time progressed, the truth came out about what his true iterations really were,” Erica confessed.
“It [the proposal] was definitely genuine, I spent a lot of moneyon the ring for God’s sake. All my hard work earned money and she had to spend nothing,” he said during a recent radio interview with Ryan Cameron of V-103.
“Everybody likes to point the finger. Anything I ever did to Erica….if she felt it was in a bad way or bad sense then I’m sorry. It ain’t nothing but love coming from over here. That’s the mother of my child and somebody I had a lot of history with.”
“I know what love is and I know who ain’t showing me love. So if my little mess ups say that I’m not genuine with it and I’m not showing love, then maybe we all need to rethink what love is.”
I’m honestly at a loss. I want to adequately describe that tragedy that is Erica Dixon’s recent Black Men Digital photo shoot, while not throwing too much shade. But in this situation, I don’t know if there really is a thing as too much.
In this spread, Erica, the Hempsted New York native who always had goals of being an actress/model strips down, covers her hot spots in what appears to be electric tape and then toots booty.
One thing about Atlanta is that it’s either hit or miss over there. Fashion is either fabulous or fuguly, hot or not. And unfortunately this photo shoot falls in that not, fugly, miss category. There’s nothing wrong with taking scantily clad/nude photos; but when you have a daughter who’s old enough to Google, these things should be done a bit more tastefully. The whole thing reeks of desperation.
Who would have thought the underdog of Love and Hip Hop Atlanta, the most soft-spoken, go-to-work and raise my daughter cast member would be out here like this. It’s a bit surprising. Erica seemed to be the one cast member who had the most on the ball, even though her relationship with Scrappy was always on the verge of collapse.
But now I’m starting to see the logic behind Scrappy saying Erica used the show as a way to be put on.
Check out the rest of the flicks on the following pages and be sure to let us know how you’re feeling about these pictures.
Just like Erica Dixon’s mom, we had our doubts about whether or not Erica and Scrappy would ever get married. And sure enough, the second season revealed that these two just couldn’t get it together. We knew before the season even started, and Erica wasn’t wearing her engagement ring, that these two were no where near the alter.
Well, in a conversation, with Mouth to Ears, Erica Dixon provided additional context for why she snapped at that dinner and why she called off the engagement.
The Snap:“The reason for my snap…what they did cut out was the fact that she called me a Beyotch again and that’s what made me snap. Like blatantly in my face and they cut it out.”The status of the engagement:“We’re co-parenting. I definitely called off the engagement. Clearly Scrappy wasn’t ready. I feel like the whole proposal at the end of the day was to save his image. It was all about how he looked to the people. So that’s why I believe he proposed at the end at the reunion because he was getting so much hate from fans and I think it was just too much for him to deal with. I feel like as time progressed, the truth came out about what his true iterations really were.”
