Red Carpet Premiere: Love and Hip Hop Atlanta with a Flair of Drama (video inside)

| June 14, 2012 | 0 Comments

Last night traffic on Peachtree Road was like something out of a Hollywood movie premiere as many whose who in Atlanta hip hop converged on radio personality Frank Ski’s restaurant establishment to get a first hand look at what is sure to be full of drama and hip hop for the premiere of VH1 Love and Hip Hop Atlanta.  If you think the madness of the New York version was too much to watch well brace yourselves because we know Atlanta is notoriously known for reality drama thanks in part due to the cast of the Real Housewives of Atlanta which coincidentally two of the cast members were also present. Things got a little heated as comedian Cadillac Kim questioned one of the cast member’s if she was a transgender.

Cast members Rasheeda, K. Michelle, Mimi Faust, Erica Dixon, Karlie Redd, Joseline Hernandez, Momma Dee, Stevie J, Lil ScrappyKirk Frost and executive producers Mona Scott-Young (Monami) and Stephan Marley (NFGTV) attended, along with over 300 guests at Frank Ski’s Restaurant to preview the first episode. The evening began with a press Q&A with the cast moderated by V103 midday personality and HGTV’s “Property Virgins” host Egypt Sherrod followed by the episode screening (also hosted by Egypt with husband DJ Fadelf on the turntables). The event closed out with a performance by Stevie J and rapper Benzino’s band The Magnificent 757s. Additional guests included Jazze Pha, Dave Mays, Dennis Byron, Bernard Bronner, Phaedra Parks, Apollo NidaDerek J, Sharlinda Parker, Sabrina Rowe and many more.
