3 Reasons “Love & Hip Hop Atlanta” Is Totally Scripted


People don’t actually talk like this, do they?

I’m not from the South, so somebody school me. But between Stevie J’s threat to Joseline that he “has papers” on her, Karlie’s conversation with Mimi about Joseline “being down” for her man, and Lil’ Scrappy’s threat to “put them paws” on Stevie J. for dissing his woman, I can’t help but wonder if folks down South actually talk like this.

The way these folks sound makes me feel like I’m caught up in a bad street lit novel rather than listening in on normal conversations. And when you couple their dialogue with the super stylized camera shots, I just can’t take these folks at face value.
