In related news, Love & Hip Hop creator Mona Scott-Young held a press roundtable event on Monday (Mar. 25) with some of the biggest names on the Atlanta media scene.
Scott explained her presentation of women on Love & Hip Hop, despite the backlash she receives. “Often times people tell me how horrible it is, or how these women should go crawl under a rock,” she said. “I’m not here to judge them! I think that these women are a part of our population as African Americans. They live real lives and their stories deserve to be told as much as the other stories. I encourage them to use this as a platform. I will never forget the first time I gave Joseline a check and she cried. Prior to that she has never seen her name printed on a check because she was only ever paid in dollar bills, so don’t tell me I’m not changing lives.”
Although audiences question Mona’s responsibly to showcasing black women in a more positive light, VH1′s new show The Gossip Game seems to be a change of pace. The Monami Entertainment founder discussed how she chose the new cast. “We met with them and tried to find different lives and mediums to represent. I walked into the situation thinking that there was a pecking order. You have TV and radio journalists, then you’ve got the freelancers, then the bloggers, almost like they were at the bottom of the totem pole. But what I realized is that all of the folks in the different areas get their news from the bloggers. They’re probably a little more important than people want to give them credit for and we wanted to explore that.”
