Althea recently gave birth to their son Zino, and last week she released full-body photos of their newborn.
According to TMZ, the couple delayed posting their son’s pictures online because they were trying to sell the photos to a tabloid for $20,000.
Benzino took to Twitter to deny the report, writing, “Rumors, Rumors, Rumors, damn, is it really that serious? Y’all think these blogs are credible when they repost this BS?”
He continued, “Me and @luvheraltheaheart are very much together and we will show our baby when we feel the time is right, wtf can 15 20 racks do? He is our precious gift from God and will show him when WE think the time is right, damn he’s only 7 days old, can we enjoy him first? Thank you for all the Love and Congratulations, we really appreciated it!!”
WeTV is banking on the couple’s participation being ratings gold, especially considering Benzino’s ex lover is also on the show. Former ”Basketball Wives: LA” star Sundy Carter is on with her ex Cedric. He wants to recommit to Sundy and put a ring on it, again, but it seems she prefers to string him along, as she’s been doing since their divorce 15 years ago.
Of course, the producers know that when Sundy and Althea meet, viewers will be glued to their screens, and bloggers will be talking about it in the days that follow.
Also, on board this season are Sean Lowe & Catherine Giudici (“The Bachelor”), Sarah Oliver & Jimmy “Inkman” Coney (“Bad Girls Club”) and Mama June & Sugar Bear (“Here Comes Honey Boo Boo”).
In the premiere episode, the drama begins immediately when Benzino and Althea arrive at the mansion fighting. The YBF posted an exclusive clip of from the new season, check it out below. The series premieres Dec. 4 at 9/8c.
