“Love & Hip Hop is actually my favorite show to watch — even when I was on Basketball Wives,” Compton-born rapper Bambi told VH1 when we met her down in Atlanta recently. Bambi’s been living in the ATL for four years (minus her stint back in LA for Basketball Wives) and will be appearing on Love & Hip Hop Atlanta this season, thanks in part to her romance with Lil Scrappy.
“Basketball Wives, it was like, a lot more catty because you’re just dealing with girls all day and you’re just like, all aggressive, so now people are going to get to see a whole different side of me. Like, I’m with a man and I have to not only represent myself but represent him too, so I have to be a little bit more mature these days. And it’s actually a good thing.”
Watch the rest of the clip to see how Bambi has matured and is giving back to her community with her Pink Out Power charity event to empower young women.
Love & Hip Hop Atlanta returns this Monday, May 5th at 8PM ET/PT.
