DJ Traci Steele and DJ Babey Drew won’t be back for the third season of Love and Hip Hop: Atlanta. Traci Steele confirmed the speculation explaining: “‘Am I doing the next season of Love and Hip Hop Atlanta?’ No. I didn’t choose. Apparently me and Drew weren’t as turnt up, I guess, as the rest of the cast members. We had some sanity. We were a little bit more relaxed and more grounded. A lot of people come to me and say you had the most class out of everyone else. Well class don’t cut it on Love and Hip Hop Atlanta.“ The person who hollered and screamed about "popcorn ho*s" all season was too classy for the show? Okay. [Bossip]

As for the original Love & Hip Hop, back at the end of the month, there’s already a rumor floating that one of the key storylines is being faked. Imagine that.

According to Yaris Sanchez, “Cyn Santana is frontin’ as a lesbian just to be part of the cast.” Perish the thought. [Diary of a Hollywood Street King]

Usher has been training hard to get in shape to portray boxing legend Sugar Ray Leonard on the big screen. The R&B heartthrob shed 25 pounds for the role and says the best training advice he received was from Sugar Ray himself.

You have to pull back a little bit…My commitment to this character demands that I not only physically get ready, but also become him. The hair, the personality, the manner he conducts himself in—all that. He’s an incredible man.” Note to self: Step up on the pushups and ease back on the Popeye’s Chicken. [Concrete Loop]
