"Love & Hip Hop" creator, Mona Scott-Young, chatted with Justthefab.com where she revealed she is currently casting for the Atlanta version of the hit series. Though she wouldn't name names, she said that she is excited about the series and it will stay true to the "Atlanta" feel.
When asked about the Chrissy and Jim Jones situation, Mona said she adores Chrissy but thinks the toll of having the camera expose intimate details of her life was overwhelming. She added, "Right now I'm giving her some time and Im hoping things will calm down and she'll feel a little bit better." SIDEBAR: Seems like Chrissy isn't on board for season 3 yet!
When asked about Yandy, she said she thinks Yandy grew from the rollercoaster experience but admits it did have some serious repercussions for her (e.g. ending her business relationship with Jim).
