The brawl on set of the "Love & Hip Hop Atlanta" reunion show taping was pretty spectacular. Now Benzino is accusing "LAHHATL" producer Mona Scott-Young of orchestrating the violent fights in order to drive ratings. According to Atlanta Daily World on Saturday, Benzino thinks Mona set it all up so Joseline Hernandez would come out fighting.

Benzino had at least part of it right. Joseline came out fighting and allegedly took jabs at Althea Heart, Tammy Rivera and Mimi Faust all within the first minutes of taping. The violence was so bad that further taping was cancelled for the following day and the cast wasn't able to come back together without more security and no audience.

Then again, producers should already know better than to bring in a studio audience for these kind of shows. Didn't they learn anything from the taping of another VH1 reunion show? Taping had to be shut down and resumed without an audience for fellow VH1 hit "Basketball Wives LA" this year as well.

In any case, Benzino is convinced that Mona Scott-Young and Joseline Hernandez planned the drama together. His evidence is a picture of the two hanging out together after the on-set brawl. Benzino even went so far as to accuse Scott-Young during a recent interview with Vlad TV. In his claim, he says "Love & Hip Hop Atlanta" producers are rewarding Joseline for her bad behavior.

Joseline Hernandez did so much damage within the first minutes of the "LAHHATL" reunion show that other cast of the show are asking for her to finally be fired. Aside from attacking Althea, Mimi and Tammy Rivera, Joseline also bit a hunk out of one of the security guards trying to subdue her. After all the rumors that Joseline is abusing drugs, it's hard not to believe them after seeing some of her current behavior. The so-called "Puerto Rican Princess" is acting very out of control lately.

So we'll see if Mona Scott-Young condones the violence and erratic behavior coming from Joseline Hernandez lately. After attacking three other cast members and security, she truly shouldn't be invited back for another season.
