her talents back to our TV screens. The first version is that behind-the-scenes, Mariah’s fallout with some of the cast, has limited the type of time that she could shoot with other members. Allegedly, some cast members have said they prefer not to film with her. We’re also told that producers pegged her as ‘hard to work with’.
Meanwhile, someone close to Mariah paints a different story. Those close to her say that the production team (not to be confused with the network) was only interested in showing Mariah in conflict. As you’ll recall, the last two seasons, Mariah has had conflict with Toya Bush-Harris (season 1) and her former best friend Quad Webb-Lunceford (season 2).
Those close to her say they weren’t interested in showing other facets of her personal life. In fact, they didn’t want Mariah to show or share her most recent pregnancy, which sadly later ended in a miscarriage, with viewers. We’re told Mariah was asked to return, but believes they’d ‘diminish’ her horribly for ratings.
While Mariah’s casting status is still in question, it appears that she’ll still have an Executive Producer credit and will work behind-the-scenes in some capacity. Meanwhile, Quad, Toya, Dr. Simone, Dr. Jackie, Lisa Nicole Cloud and Dr. Heavenly will return. The new official cast member is a woman named Jill Conners.
P.S. What are your thoughts on Mariah not returning to the show?
