'Love & Hip Hop: Atlanta' turns from filming to fisticuffs

Reality TV show "Love and Hip Hop: Atlanta" became all too real on Wednesday. As shown in the embedded video, via TMZ, the filming became less about film and more about fighting, as a free-for-all erupted.

Filming was taking place at the opening of a new restaurant. The video isn't via VH1 cameras, although it's been said that the network's cameras were rolling the whole time. Instead, it's cell phone video.

According to sources, sparks flew when star Joseline Hernandez (rapper and wife of Stevie J) walked in with a girlfriend. Several arguments ensued, reportedly instigated by the girlfriend. Eventually, fists were flying.

Most of the cast became involved in the fracas, with several receiving cuts and Karlie Redd (model, R&B singer/rapper, ex-girlfriend of Benzino) being knocked out. Someone threw a bottle at Momma Dee (Lil Scrappy's mom), but she was not seriously injured.

Joseline Hernandez and Stevie J can be seen in the middle of the melee in the early stages of video. Later, outside the restaurant, Momma Dee and Shay Johnson can be seen still fighting with each other.

Reportedly, no arrests were made and security guards eventually broke up the fight.

"Love & Hip Hop: Atlanta," Wikipedia says is the Atlanta-based spin-off of "Love & Hip Hop." The VH1 show premiered on June 18, 2012, and follows the lives of several women who are involved with hip hop. Season three will premiere in May 2014.
