Love and Hip Hop Atlanta was surely a treat last night for those of you who were lucky or maybe not so lucky enough(I’m still traumatized from all the drama) to catch the premiere last night on Vh1. Being only the first episode, many expected a calm introduction into meeting the ladies of the new spin off show….but that was definitely not what viewers saw. Things were everything but calm among the cast members.
Joseline is probably the most controversial character so far. Joseline is one of Stevie J’s artists who has taken under his wing. However, the rapport between Joseline and Stevie is not that of a typical producer and client. In one scene, Stevie J goes as far as smacking Josephine on the butt while they are in the studio together. Later in the episode, Mimi confronts Josephine on rumors that she’s been hearing about her man and Josephine getting it on. Let’s just say that things turned really ugly, with Stevie J in the middle of all the drama.
So who is this girl that is stirring up so much drama? Her full name is Josephine Hernandez and she is a former stripper turned artist. She is a Latina rapper who is trying to break into the music scene. While coming from a tough background, she is determined to make her dream of becoming a major artist come true. She refuses to go back to stripping, so its all or nothing.
However, its being rumored that Joseline Hernandez is not a woman, but indeed a man. Blogger Sandra Rose reported the claims last, after someone wrote the following anonymous letter to her:
“I have solid proof that “Joseline Hernandez” of ‘Love Hip Hop Atlanta’ was born a man. “Joe” and I went to the same high school. Attached is a photo scan of his HS yearbook picture before the surgeries. (Please don’t publish his pic!) I was close to him in high school. Here is my contact info. Let’s talk.”
But on the other hand, another blogger (Ms. Jia) is reporting that she is a woman. Someone also submitted a letter stating that Joselin has a brother and is really a woman:
“For the past couple of weeks, I’ve seen people on blogs & Twitter talk about the new cast of Love & Hip Hop Atlanta, specifically Joseline. Many have wondered if she was a man or woman but after watching the premiere episode & finally seeing her face, I can tell you she’s a woman! A few friends noticed her as a middle school classmate of ours and pulled out our eigth grade yearbook. I attached the picture for you!
By the way, I read on another blog that someone said she was a man & her name was Jose, not true. She has a twin brother named Jose. So hope that ends the confusion!”
