“Little Women: Atlanta” has lost one of their leading ladies.
On the season 5 premiere of the Lifetime reality series, Monie Cashette, announced she was leaving the show after she lost her battle to gain primary custody of her son, D2.
So, Monie made the decision to leave the show so that she could move to Houston to be closer to her 13-year-old son.
Monie’s starred on the show since it began … but our sources tell us she feels like her son, Derrick Beckton Jr., needs his mom’s influence and care at a critical point in his life — so she’s dropping everything to move to Houston.
As fans of the show know … Monie’s been trying to gain custody of her son for over a year, battling her ex-husband in the Texas courts. She was traveling between Atlanta and Houston for 3 years to see her son, and wanted to permanently move her kid to Atlanta to live with her and her new hubby … but a judge slammed those doors shut.
Sounds like quitting the show was an easy decision … we’re told Monie will always put her son before her career.
Monie will be missed, but I am so glad she realizes her son is more important than reality TV.
