Love and Hip Hop Atlanta has become one of the most anticipated reality show of all time.
Over 6 million viewers tuned in for it’s season 5 debut last month, making it the most watched TV show. Fist fights and feuds have made the VH1 series very popular, but now the producers have done away with the physical altercations.
The Love and Hip Hop Atlanta fighting has been banned from the show. TMZ reports:
“Production sources tell us the ATL ladies and gents were forced to sign docs agreeing to put their manicured claws (and fists) away … after major advertisers started complaining. Show execs flew to Atlanta 2 weeks ago to lay down the law.
We’re told all cast members who brawl during taping will be cut from the episode without pay and suspended. They could also face possible termination.
It’s a risky move, since ‘LHHA’ has become VH1’s most popular show, by far — and let’s face it, fights are part of its winning formula.
But the threat of hardcore punishment seems to be working. We hear the cast has resorted to screaming matches because nobody wants to lose their money — the definition of a true thug.”
Do you think the show will continue to grab viewers’ attention now that “putting them paws” on anyone is prohibited?
