Moniece Slaughter’s got a new boo and the new boo is a woman, AD Diggs! The Brooklyn native sat down for an exclusive interview with VH1.com to discuss her philosophy on life (“The world would be a better place if people would look at things less negatively”) and her reasons for signing up for Love & Hip Hop Hollywood.
The entrepreneur hails from Brooklyn, raised in a large Italian-Puerto Rican family, and despite being in a relationship with a reality TV celebrity, she’s not here for the drama. “My least favorite thing filming a reality show is the drama, I honestly like to stay clear of it,” she continues, “I don’t really like the petty stuff, too, I’m going to be honest, that’s the worst part of this.” Despite her aversion to melodrama and pettinuess, AD is totally aware that she is in a relationship with Moniece! “It’s funny that I say I don’t like petty but I’m in a whole relationship with my girlfriend Moniece, one of the pettiest women on Love & Hip Hop.”
Despite relationship ups and downs, AD hopes her time on Love & Hip Hop will be positive. Her sexuality is only a part of her but the significance of her presence on TV screens is not lost on her. “Who you love shouldn’t really dictate the type of person that you show up as,” she continues, “I thought about all the positivities [to doing Love & Hip Hop] that this could carry, with me being a lesbian and how I could present myself to the world. I have a responsibility of being a role model on this show.”
Don’t miss AD on the season premiere of Love & Hip Hop Hollywood on Monday, July 24th at 8/7c.
