After the craziness that was the Love & Hip Hop Atlanta season three reunion, Joseline burned some bridges with Tammy Rivera and Waka Flocka Flame, but it turns out that there’s still hope for a professional relationship with Deb Antney.
Antney, who has worked with the the likes of Nicki Minaj and her own son Waka, said she would jump at the chance to work with the Puerto Rican Princess.
“I like Joseline a lot, like honestly I really do. I really wish that things didn’t happen the way they happened because Joseline is the person that I really truly wanted to work with.” Still, Antney realizes the tension caused due to the situation at the reunion. “I can’t let her hurt my daughter-in-law. That I couldn’t allow to happen. It wasn’t the fact of that, it was the fact that you had to look at her in her eye she was like another person.” And who else would Antney work with? Margeaux. “[S]he’s a female that’s got a lot going on for herself, she knows her direction and knows exactly where she’s going also.”
But despite her open-mindedness about some of her co-stars, there’s one person who Antney can’t exactly see herself connected to professionally, and that’s Karlie Redd. “[I would work with] everybody on there, technically…except Karlie. I like Karlie too, but she’s messy. Karlie’s a messy chick. She’s not a chick that I really deal with. We speak, outside of [the show] we talk, I don’t hold conversations with her everyday but she’s not a person that I really want to be up underneath because the way she shows herself is how she is. She’s messy.”
Antney, who has experience in social work as a case manager for years, has turned into a de facto mom for the group and has given some real-ass advice over the years. Recently Antney gave Mimi the idea to write children’s book to fulfill her contract obligations with Nikko, but how does Deb feel about Mimi’s MF Management? “I think it’s a joke. I think that first off –– I love Mimi –– I really do love her but I think that Mimi needs to find her way and where she’s going and what she’s doing before she can manage another person’s career and get them together.”
In this week’s episode, Kalenna turned to Antney after being fed up with her husbandger, Tony Vick, and Antney recalled their first meeting and the difficult decision whether or not to work with Kalenna:
“Kalenna still thinks that she’s that chick from [Diddy] Dirty Money, you know? She still thinks that the same things are going on and her life is the same way and she’s just that person. You know you got used to living a certain lifestyle and when it’s over with, it’s over with and it’s kind of hard to set yourself in reality and that’s pretty much where she was. I didn’t know if she needed counseling or if she really did need a manager because she really seemed like a basket case for the first time.” Alluding to their continued relationship, Antney said, “I came to find out it was a lot of other things there that…things that I don’t really wanna deal with.” Guess we’ll have to see that play out next week!
