Mona Scott-Young Describes Benzino Shooting As Blessing From "Reality Gods"

(AllHipHop News) Mona Scott-Young has been the executive producer of Love & Hip Hop for four years, but the Mimi Faust and Rikko sextape from last month may have been the biggest news the show has ever garnered. In a recent interview, Mona Scott-Young speaks on how she questioned the legitimacy of the sex tape and how Benzino’s recent shooting was a blessing from the “reality gods”.

This past March, Benzino was allegedly shot by his nephew en route to a funeral service for his mother. Rumors spread that Benzino staged the shooting to increase news interest, a rumor that  Young denies. However, the woman who makes a living off of reality show ratings, stated that the timing of the shooting was a good sign:

The timing and the way that it happened, you have another moment that you go, you can’t make this stuff up. It’s like the reality gods have once again chosen this show to smile upon.

Young later stated that “I’m producing a show that you hope gets ratings and you hope people respond to. Good or bad.”

Young attests that neither herself or VH1 has a financial investment in the sale of Mimi & Nikko: Scandal in Atlanta sex tape, distributed through Vivid Entertainment. However, the ringleader of the reality chaos did state that she questioned Mimi when the star first informed her that Vivid Entertainment got a hold of the sextape:

When she called and said, ‘The head of one of the biggest porn companies got a copy of it,’ did I have my own questions? Of course. Like, really? How did he know it was you? How did he get your phone number?

    What an idiotic thing to say. Since when is getting shot a blessing.
    The length we would go to try make a buck these days.



  • Alex P. Keaton

    Oooooooookay now……She’s an Idiot.


    She just a black ricki lake wanna be (eating mad steaks off those bad breaks), hope someone shoot at her ass and put her in hospital too, that would make for a nice reality show! Real talk, real nigg4z do not give a fruk bout love n bs atlanta or love and bs new york.

    I’ll say this…what she said was a shitty and absurd but at least it was honest. A lot of people in here position would’ve played it off as if they cared and would’ve said something like “we feel so bad for the family and hope that they can get the help they so desperately need…”

    However, with that said, people should be going ballistic on this b!tch – black males shooting each other and all she thinks about is the extra money she’s going to make. If people thought what Don Sterling said was a gross display of ignorance what you say about someone who just said that one black male shooting at another black male was a blessing…

    no way would any of these so called black leaders ever let a white person get away with saying some shit like that.

      i wouldnt had played nothing off .. i would of felt sometype of way .. maybe this reality ish is getting too real …. or something rational … shorty is messed up … i always say people who usually provide this kind of entertainment actually enjoy it … and i mean really enjoy it … the enjoy seeing people suffer … enjoy it …

  • Savimbi

    My God, shameful statement, everything stemming from that situation was extremely sad, being that it happened during someone’s funeral and the victim and the shooter were both from the same family, for her ass to come out and call it a blessing is disturbing.

  • Chris

    Despicable. Her ignorance is repugnant. Ole’ “Nino-Brown-steppin’-over-bodies-&-usin’-people-for-shields-just-to-save-your-weak-ass-show-ass-n*gga”. SMH.
