Say what you want about her, but there’s something about Joseline Hernandez that cracks me all the way up.
VH1 caught up with Hernandez recently and during their brief chat, they asked her if she had been keeping up with everyone’s new TV addiction: “Empire.” The “Love and Hip Hop Atlanta” star is not only a big fan of the show, but she can relate to it because she thinks that Taraji P. Henson’s character of Cookie pulls inspiration from “the Puerto Rican princess.” In her best NeNe Leakes wig, Hernandez had this to say:
“Yaaaaaas. I love Empire, honey! I know Cookie been taking some lessons from me. I mean, where you think she gets it from? That ain’t all her character, that’s Joseline Hernandez’s character, honey. I know it for a fact. Shout out to Miss Cookie though.”
You gotta love Joseline.
But in case she missed it, Henson already shared with Vogue that a few feisty women, including Lil Kim, inspired her portrayal of Cookie. However, she made no mention of the Puerto Rican princess…
“Is she influenced by Foxy Brown? Certainly. That’s where a lot of her style comes from—Salt-N-Pepa, all of that. That era of hip-hop was her heyday, those are the woman[sic] she identifies with.”
Anywho, check out Hernandez’s comments on the show below:

“They Were Boring As Sh*t”: K. Michelle Says Benzino And Althea Eaton Deserved To Get Fired From “LHHATL,” He Responds
When everyone found out that Benzino and Althea Eaton got the boot from “Love and Hip Hop Atlanta,” I think we can all agree that it was somewhat of a shock. Okay, a little bit of a shock. A lot of wild things are done for storyline purposes on these shows, but considering the fact that Joseline Hernandez went buckwild on everyone at the “Love and Hip Hop Atlanta” reunion, and Benzino and Althea were a big part of Stevie and Joseline’s storyline, it seemed odd to cut them. Obviously, Benzino was pissed:
But surprisingly, one person who thinks the firing was justified is former “LHHATL” star, K. Michelle. She told Wet Paint why:
“If it’s your time to go, then it’s your time to go. I thought Benzino was wilding. I mean, they were boring as sh*t to me, so it is what it is.
I mean, there were other reasons they were let go that I’m not at liberty to say, and he deserved that, to be let go. It was a serious situation…I’m queen of “Love & Hip Hop.” And with Joseline and Stevie too, everybody else is replaceable. Bye! [laughs] I’m just being honest.”
A still testy Benzino was quick to respond, and took the time to do so on his website, Hip Hop Weekly:
“The thing with K Michelle is that you don’t want to get into a negative debate with a former cast member especially when the show did record numbers this past season after she left. I have had many successes in the industry for many years, so she has a long way to go before she can say anything about Zino. Bottom line is the facts are the facts; K Michelle came on the show in season one and made up a story about being beat up, which was a lie, which came out in her deposition in the case with her former boyfriend. When she left ‘Love & Hip Hop Atlanta’ after season 2 is when I stepped in and became a main character. I was intertwined with everyone’s storylines, so how is my storyline boring? And then from having Hip Hop Weekly on the show, to opening Sleazy & Zino’s, to my mom passing away and me getting shot, all of these were major parts of this past season. Also, I brought my fiancée Althea on the show, and she became a very important factor in the show’s storyline as well. We broke ratings records without K Michelle! If anything was boring, it was her involvement with the New York cast last season, you barely knew that she was even there. She better hope that her new show does better numbers than that VH1 special they did on her that basically flopped. She better hope it’s not a one and done like ‘Gossip Girls ‘, the Hot 97 show and ‘The New Atlanta.’ But once again, she is one of Mona Scott’s favorites–Mona manages her so of course I expected to hear K Michelle speak on their behalf. In my opinion it’s unprofessional to be the leader of a company and take sides and show favoritism, when it clearly was the whole cast, not just one person, that has made ‘Love & Hip Hop Atlanta’ so successful.”
But what do you think? Was Benzino and Althea’s storyline strong enough to keep them on the show? Do you think the couple being fired from the show was fair?
So it looks like another member of the “Love & Hip Hop” franchise may be in trouble with the law for attacking a cast member.
According to TMZ, Joseline Hernandez is wanted by the New York Police Department for her infamous reunion show brawl. Cast member Althea Eaton recently filed a police report with the department claiming that Joseline was the instigator of the fight. Investigators have since opened a case against the reality star regarding the incident. Because there is now an open case, if she is pulled over or spotted by officers while in New York, Joseline will be taken into custody for the alleged crime and may face charges.
Last August, Althea filed a lawsuit against Joseline over the fight. In her suit, she claims that several eyewitnesses saw Joseline smoking crack in her dressing room during the taping. She argues that because Joseline was high on drugs during the altercation, she should be the one to assume responsibility for the brawl.
It’s unclear exactly when the police report was filed with the NYPD, but there’s a good chance that it may have been after Althea and her fiancé, Benzino, learned that they had been fired by “Love & Hip Hop Atlanta” producers over the reunion altercation.
Clearly, these two aren’t going down without a fight.

The second installment of the “Love & Hip Hop Atlanta” reunion revolved completely around Joseline Hernandez and her troubled relationship with Stevie J. It seemed like the perfect set-up for producers to further delve into the lives of Stevie and Joseline and explore why they are the way that they are. However, judging by a recent tweet posted to Stevie’s Twitter page, producers may have something a bit different in mind.
Coming Soon!!! #StevieandJoselineShow

Yes, it looks like there may be a spin-off in the works; however, fans seemed to have varied reactions to the news.

It would make perfect sense that these two would get a spin-off since often times that seems to be the solution when major stars of the franchise can no longer get along with their cast members. After fighting with her co-stars throughout the duration of last season, K. Michelle announced that she would be leaving the show to star in her own spin-off. The same happened with Chrissy Lampkin and Jim Jones after the pair fell out with co-star Yandy Smith and the show’s executive producer Mona Scott-Young.
Would you watch Joseline and Stevie’s spin-off?
Is K. Michelle Defending Joseline’s Disturbing Reunion Show Antics? ‘I’ve Never Seen So Many Holy Perfect Pennys’
Last night, Joseline Hernandez flew into a violent rage, attacking almost every co-star she has ever had an issue with during part two of the “Love & Hip Hop Atlanta” reunion show. Judging by her behavior, she clearly has multiple issues that she should probably seek professional help about. The entire cast, with the exception of Stevie J and Karlie Redd, expressed concern and disgust regarding Joseline’s wild behavior. Former LHHATL star K. Michelle, however, appeared to be defending Joseline against critics on Twitter last night.
In the end we all bleed the same blood, and just desire true love.
— K.Michelle (@kmichelle) September 2, 2014
“They should’ve just past out a bottle of Jesus Juice and halos. I’ve never seen so many Holy Perfect Pennys,” she continued.
The singer then went on to reflect on a time where she was misunderstood by her co-stars.
I rember being the outcast and labeled the villain, something I still have to live down everyday. Not a good feeling. — K.Michelle (@kmichelle) September 2, 2014
Never judge someone because the sin differently from you.
— K.Michelle (@kmichelle) September 2, 2014
Y’all, have a goodnight though. Thank God for second chances, and thanks to all of you who go so hard for me every day. Love❤️ — K.Michelle (@kmichelle) September 2, 2014
Joseline also took to Instagram to point out that the entire second installment consisted of cast members chiming in on her life, but did not acknowledge what was said about her.
Did you watch part two of the reunion last night? What do you think about how everything went down?
Earlier this week, we told you that “Love & Hip Hop Atlanta” cast member Althea Eaton filed a lawsuit against Joseline Hernandez for assaulting her at the series’ reunion show taping. In her suit, Althea also claimed that Joseline’s attack was fueled by drugs, which she allegedly consumed backstage the day the show was filmed.
Joseline’s purported husband, Steven “Stevie J” Jordan recently spoke to TMZ about the drug abuse allegations, which he of course claims are totally false. According to Stevie, Althea began spreading lies about Joseline’s alleged drug use before the reunion was even filmed. As for the lawsuit, the controversial reality star says that it’s simply a tactic for Althea to draw attention from the fact that Benzino slugged Joseline in the midst of the brawl.
“No grown man should hit a woman,” said Stevie.
Unsurprisingly, The Jordans say they have plans to countersue to Althea. Benzino, however, is already calling BS on his ex-friend’s countersuit, but he’s not denying socking Joseline either.
“It’s clear that him and his whore jumped off the couch and attacked us and whatever happened from there was merely self-defense.”
If it’s true that Benzino punched Joseline, he’s dead wrong; however, it’s interesting to note that he did try to prevent a physical altercation from happening a couple of months ago.
“Can someone please tell me why this animal keeps threatening my girl on TV?” he questioned in an Instagram post. “She went from a stripper to a street-walking prostitute to an escort and now a reality star. Althea has never once said anything bad about her, but trust the GREEN-SCREEN GANGSTA won’t lay a finger on her.”
“I can take the jokes and insults but when she keeps talkin’ about violence is where I draw the line,” he continued. “She need to go get her GED and uplift herself cause her music is lacking. I feel sorry for Sleazo violence will not be tolerated.”
Clearly, this drama is going to extend way beyond the next two installments of the reunion special.

Monday night, viewers saw a brief clip from the huge fight that went down at the “Love & Hip Hop Atlanta” reunion show. And as we’ve been reporting for over a month now, Joseline Hernandez was at the epicenter of it all. Clearly proud of her actions, the Latin recording artist took to Instagram Tuesday with a screenshot from the aftermath of the brawl with a caption that reads:
“When me n the bay go to WAR.”
She also shared another, which was apparently snapped just before she initiated the brawl, and reads:
“Bay I got this [these] lames.”
“Yea you know #dangerzone #baddestputa #spanishrockstar #fuckuhoe #Whatyougonna do!”
But it appears that the self-proclaimed Puerto Rican Princess may be getting more than she bargained for if co-star Althea Heart aka Althea Eaton has her way. According to TMZ, the “Love & Hip Hop Atlanta” freshman recently filed a lawsuit against her co-star behind the brawl.
In the suit, Althea alleges that several eyewitnesses saw Joseline smoking crack out of a pipe backstage during the taping. She also argues that her sworn enemy was high when she attacked her. Considering that Joseline was caught on film punching a sitting Althea in the face, it will be quite interesting to hear what her defense will be. Interestingly, VH1, Viacom and Monami Productions were not mentioned in the suit, which makes Benzino’s previous claim that the fight was staged look a bit shaky.
Also, this hasn’t been the first time we’ve heard talk about Joseline having a drug problem. Last month, questionable footage of the reality star behaving erratically during a studio session fueled those rumors as well.

Months ago, we learned that the cast of “Love and Hip Hop Atlanta” threw down at the reunion taping. It was a full out brawl with Joseline attacking Tammy, Althea and Mimi.
A source close to the show, who wanted to remain anonymous, told our sister site Bossip that the reason Joseline was so hell bent on attacking her cast members was because she was under the influence at the time.
This certainly isn’t the first time we’ve heard claims or seen evidence suggesting that Joseline is using. Her “husband” Stevie J, even tested positive for cocaine when he was arrested for back child support.
But at this point people are starting to worry about Joseline’s safety as well as the safety of those around her.
The source told Bossip bluntly, “They need to send her a$$ to rehab! Having her film anything else says to Tammy, Althea and Mimi that it’s okay for her to put hands on them. She doesn’t get to act up just because she’s been tootin'”
The source said she’s watched Joseline get high on several occasions but doesn’t know whether or not she’s done so on the set of “Love and Hip Hop Atlanta.”
“I wouldn’t be surprised if she called her connect to get high right before shooting scenes, but that set is closed once the cameras start rolling and no one can come on set.”
The source said that Joseline is not only a threat to herself but to Stevie as well.
“I’m definitely concerned she might take it too far and kill him. Not necessarily on purpose, but Joseline is uncontrollable when she’s high. Who knows what might trigger her to pick up a weapon and use it.”
The source partially blames “Love and Hip Hop” creator Mona Scott Young, who reportedly knows about Joseline’s habit.
In fact, the source claims that Mona has created a monster.
“She needs help and if Mona wanted to do the decent thing she would require her to go to rehab before doing any more filming. Mona created that monster.”
This isn’t an unusual suggestion. Tammy suggested that she wouldn’t be taking part in this show until they started requiring drug tests.
Mona always says their show doesn’t promote violence but that certainly hasn’t been the case in the past. And if the reunion is going to be as bad as the rumors suggest it’s still not true.
But the question is, should Mona require or ask Joseline to take a drug test? Does Mona allowing her to keep working on the show pose a danger to the cast members or somehow suggest that Mona condones the crazy behavior because it increases ratings?
At this point, I can’t think of a reason why she shouldn’t.
“They’re Some Real Clowns” Ex Manager Dawn Heflin Talks Stevie & Joseline’s Drug Use, Bold Lies & Freaky Sex Lives
To say that Joseline’s former manager Dawn Heflin is a bit bitter about the way things went down with Stevie and Joseline this season would be an understatement. Some of us remember watching Dawn throw Stevie’s business and his papers in his face when he told her Joseline was dunzo. And while some of us might be wondering why she was so upset about leaving Joseline and Stevie and all of their messiness, in an interview with VladTv, Dawn explains that she did quite a bit to help Joseline out just to be left out in the cold like that.
And so when she was asked to spill some tea on Joseline, Stevie and their relationship, she was more than ready to talk.
See what she had to say and in the full transcript below or watch the video.
VladTV: There was, about a month ago, a sex tape with Joseline, a guy and a girl that leaked out. What’s up with that?
Dawn Heflin: Joseline’s been a slut. You feel what I’m saying? She was sleeping with one of Stevie’s friends who was with them producing. That’s what she did. She slept with like two or three guys. There’s video of her sleeping with three different dudes on stage. She’s sucking a$$, they sucking pu$%y. I mean, it is what it is. That’s who she is. She still likes women, she still likes men. Stevie’s f*#king a nail tech, she and the nail tech are cool. I guess that’s what they like.
VT: Working with Joseline, what were some of the craziest things that you saw?
DH: The craziest thing was her snorting cocaine. She used to always talk about how the people in the club wanted her to do that. But that was the craziest thing I ever saw because she always used to talk bad about people that did it. And then when I confronted her about it, it was basically her and Stevie. She was like Stevie put her on it. And that’s what she likes to do. Because I always wanted to see why she didn’t do a work out video. But the loss of the weight wasn’t from the workout, it was from getting high from the coke and the molly and they smoke that weed and they do what they do. That was basically like the craziest thing because she always downplayed it or talk bad about others. So, when I actually saw her do it, that was like the worst sh*t I could have seen, coming from her.
What she wants people to know.
DH: I really just want to let everybody know, these two frauds–like I said before– they’re just living a lie. We all know they’re not married. They can’t produce a marriage certificate. Poor Eva comes over to the house…Joseline despises Eva just because of Mimi. Mimi’s never done anything to Joseline and it’s like she just wants to make this thing so personal with Eva. I’m just surprised that Mimi would still even allow Eva to still go to the house.
Even Stevie’s father doesn’t like Joseline, he knows how she is. I think she just got caught trying to sleep with one of Stevie’s friends in the house while Stevie was away, a guy named Rich. It’s just so much that goes on with them.
And you know the music, even with the music, she always wants to push this music that’s straight garbage. And then you look at Stevie, coming from being a Grammy award winning producer, it’s like where does the line draw? Has he lost his ear for music, for good music or is he putting out some stuff just to appease his girlfriend? I don’t know what it could be. All I know is that when I started this thing with them I signed for Joseline a place, paid her light bill, paid her gas bill. I also furnished all her clothes for first season, her shoes, her shoe game wasn’t up, her purse game wasn’t up. Second season, she tried to elevate a little but really couldn’t do what she wanted to do because she still had bills and trying to help Stevie out with his broke a$$. I mean it just…both of them just robbing Peter to pay Paul. You ’round here acting like you’re living good but that’s not the case. And I want to give a shout out to Johnny Cabel (sp) for even allowing them to stay in his home. They’ve destroyed most of the home by knocking the blinds out, they fight all the time. It’s just crazy. And then they left the lights and the gas in Johnny’s name and the cable bill, it’s not being paid. They about to turn the lights off. It’s just so much going on with these people, they’re some real clowns.
I can understand why Dawn is a little perturbed but it’s interesting that all of the foolishness didn’t seem to bother her until she was fired. It makes you wonder what type of stuff was she doing that allowed her to even associate herself with these “clowns” as she calls them.
“Is [sic] funny that 2 n—as beefing about 1 p—y and start a riot and I get blame [sic] for everything. Roll the camera please,” she wrote in an Instagram post.
“All the bullsh-t I gotta deal with cause motherf—ers will do and say anything for a story line,” she continued. “Funny #lahhatl know exactly what I’m talking about. Mona Scott need to check her workers cause I will have a lot to say asap rocky.”
“1 mad cause the other 1 f—ed his b—h at his house. Now he about to marry the h*e. We all f–k doe. LMAO.”
What’s interesting about the entire Stevie J/Benzino/Althea love triangle is that just last season, Stevie and Benzino were at odds after Benzino started claiming that he slept with Joseline. He even released a diss track about the drama called “Smashed Da Homie.”
Speaking of their feuds, Stevie also took a jab at his former friend and business partner by sharing a video of copies of of Hip Hop Weekly being burned. Earlier this season Benzino invited Stevie to be a partner of the magazine.
We’re wondering what this means for Sleazy & Zino’s Bar & Bistro. Hopefully he doesn’t plan on burning that down too!
