'Love & Hip Hop: Atlanta' season 5 news: Tammy Rivera talks about comeback; couple's conflict to be highlighted in next week's episode


“Love & Hip Hop: Atlanta” season 5 sees the comeback of Tammy Rivera.

Fans of the reality TV series were delighted when Tammy made her grand re-introduction to the reality series that she was previously a part of. Rapper Waka Flocka Flame’s wife took a leave of absence from the show after joining season 3 because of her altercation with series veteran Joseline Hernandez. The two’s encounter became so brutal that it caused Tammy to refuse being a regular in the following season.

“The reunion left a very bad taste in my mouth. But at the end of the day I felt bad about seeing myself let someone take me to that level and snapping and not realizing what I was doing… throwing bottles… just taking me all the way back to my Baltimore days. That’s the part I look at like, ‘How could somebody so low take me down to their level?'” the Virginia born star explained regarding her decision to come back. She added that the support she got from her fans also became a driving force for her return.

Although Tammy did not want to be in “Love and Hip Hop: Atlanta” season 4, she appeared in a couple of episodes interacting with principal cast members.

The 29-year-old also talked about her husband, Waka, and if fans will also be able to see him more in the show since she is back. Unfortunately, Tammy revealed that her rapper partner is very busy as of the moment, so the chances of him appearing in the show often are very slim.

“He’s of course working. Still I’m getting the house together, being a mom and pushing my business so I won’t fall into his shadows.”

Next episode, fans of the show will get to see Tammy right in the middle of action as she continues to prepare for her brand’s fashion show. Despite previously revealing that Waka will not be seen in the show often, the rapper may already have caused some ruckus when Tammy is put on an awkward situation between her husband and new model D. Smith as well as her bestfriend Betty Idol after the latter gets offended by Waka’s homophobic comments.

“Love and Hip Hop: Atlanta” season 5 airs every Monday night on VH1.
