Shay Johnson wants the world to know that she’s still one of Lil Scrappy’s “eggs” and she’s not going anywhere.
If you’ve been keeping up with the new season of “Love & Hip Hop Atlanta” then you know that Momma Dee refers to her son’s women as “eggs.” She told his current girl Bambi that he keeps his options open, a.k.a other eggs in his basket of eggs.
Well, Shay may not be on the show this season but she told VH1.com that she’s still in Scrappy’s life, despite his relationship with Bambi. “She’s doing her with him, whatever they’re doing, and I’m doing me with him, and that’s the great part,” she said.
“I know what we have and I know where I stand and how long I’ve been around,” she added. “It’s unfortunate that the world has not seen that.”
As far as Scrappy’s other “lady friend” Erica Pinkett, Shay said their fling has a definite end date. “That’s something new that’s not gonna stay around in my eyes. It’s just irrelevant. Like it’s nothing to even talk about,” she said before adding “you can’t turn a ho into a housewife. Period!”
Shay went on to say that there’s a reason why Momma Dee likes her the most. “She happens to have an unconditional love for me because I’m genuine. I say what I mean and I mean what I say and she likes that about me, and she knows that I love her son,” she revealed. “I love her; that’s my second mom.”
