Tammy starred in four seasons of the show and was a main cast member for three of those seasons. Her storylines mainly revolved around her marriage to Waka Flocka. It's Urban reports one fan as asking Tammy via Twitter if she was going to be part of the new season. Tammy responded, "No I decided not to come back for another season... But I'm always supporting my girls and will be tuned in! lol"

Vh1 reported that Joseline was quitting the show in July. The outlet wrote, "Joseline says she’s over this whole #LHHATL ish because producers wanted her to sit with cast members she’s not cool with. She has no problem speaking with Dime but Joseline isn’t here for anyone else and she expresses that to Steebie."
During the reunion in July, Vh1 aired a clip of Hernandez storming out of the studio, saying, "f**k Love & Hip Hop. I’m over it." She also told the camera to "suck her d—k since she IS the show."
New Cast Members Will Join This Season
So who will be joining the cast of LAHHA this season? Erica Mena and Jessica Dime will be getting a good amount of screen time this season, while new faces include Tokyo Vanity, BK Brasco, and Keely Hill.
