Lil’ Scrappy has been keeping things interesting this season of Love & Hip Hop Atlanta with his lady drama, but before there was Bambi and Erica P there was another lady in Scrappy’s life, his bestie turned lover Shay Johnson.
We caught up with the former Love & Hip Hop Atlanta star about Scrappy’s new ladies and getting in good with Momma Dee and we think she alluded to maybe making a pop up this season.
How are you feeling about Scrappy’s relationship with Bambi this season? Do you and Bambi know each other?
No, and I care not to. I have nothing bad to say about her. It’s irrelevant because I haven’t gone anywhere. There has been social network back and forth, little subliminal comments. But it’s petty. She’s doing her with him — whatever they’re doing. But I’m doing me with him, and that’s the great part.
What do you think of Pinky? People on social media have been saying she’s the “new Shay.”
Who’s Pinky? I don’t even know who that is. [Laughs]
I don’t want to discuss her. That’s something new that’s not gonna stay around in my eyes. It’s just irrelevant. Like it’s nothing to even talk about. Whatever she does is what she does. Time will tell. I’ll just say that.
How do you feel about all the drama going on between the three of them?
I was told [Bambi] was sleeping with him when he was dealing with other women — living with other women, so you really can’t get mad if somebody is messing with a guy that you’ve been dealing with and you were doing the same thing to another female. You can’t turn a ho into a housewife. Period. All I’m focused on is what he and I have, and that’s unconditional love.
Do you think that their relationship is just for the cameras? Or do you think it’s the real deal?
I know what we have and I know where I stand and how long I’ve been around, ya know? And it’s unfortunate that the world has not seen that, as of now, but like I said I haven’t went anywhere and I’m not going nowhere. So you can take it how you want it.
What exactly is the timeline with Scrappy Erica Dixon, you, Bambi and Erica Pinkett?
Scrappy dealt with and known Erica [Dixon] for over ten years. I came in the picture maybe three years after they met and I knew their situation but then he was dealing with [rapper] Diamond from Crime Mob who he was living with. He and I were just friends for the first four years, no sexual contact, no nothing. When he had his breakup with Diamond and when I had my breakup, that’s how we ended up getting together.
Momma Dee loves you so much. Why do you think she doesn’t seem to like Bambi or Erica P?
Momma Dee is never going anywhere. We hang out all the time and she will tell anybody I’m her baby. I know there are certain females fighting for that position and they can’t get it. I’m not telling Momma Dee, ‘Hey, don’t like this person or that person.’ She loves who she loves. She happens to have an unconditional love for me because I’m genuine. I say what I mean and I mean what I say and she likes that about me. And she knows that I love her son. I love her, that’s my second mom.
