Many of us know Mona Scott Young as the brains and executive producer behind VH1s successful reality series “Love & Hip Hop” but what you may not know is that she is from the Caribbean!!! That’s right Mona Scott Young is Haitian-American and we LUV DAT!!! The talent amongst Caribbean women is unmistakable, undeniable and unstoppable! Kudos to Mona and her company Monami Entertainment (Mon Ami is French/Creole for “my friend”)
In this interview, Mona dishes on the drama on Love & Hip Hop NY and what to expect in Love & Hip Hop Hotlanta. Mona doesn’t give away too much though, she has become a pro at keeping her audience yearning for more.
While I think its important to have women in front of and behind the cameras when it comes to television production, I am a concerned about the message we deliver when we have women behaving violently every week sometimes with their woo ha ha on display (KIMBELLA, note to file ALWAYS wear draws!!!)
The controversial reality series has left many questioning if there’s any redeeming value left on television. Others wonder “why can’t we all just get along?”, and still others are concerned about the violence amongst grown azz women (some of whom are mothers!). It appears, however, that these folks are consistently outnumbered by those who tune in every week without fail to watch the non-stop drama. (I must admit its my guilty pleasure too!!!)
Rumors abound about who will be on the LHH ATL but a few names flying around are Nas first baby mama Carmen, Diamond, Rasheeda (My Neck My Back” , Nivea (baby mama to Lil Wayne and The Dream. She gets my vote but word is she’s a no go – I’m guessing her child support money is more than enough!!!), CeeLo Greens ex Christina Johnson, Diddys baby mama, Sarah Chapman, R&B songstress K Michelle (she’s a go and is shooting already!), Shawty Los baby mama Ecreia Perez and maybe one or two “Real Housewives of ATL” may jump ship (Phaedra or Kandi to be exact!).
