Moniece Slaughter has taken to the streets of social media to beg Mona Scott-Young, Stephanie Gayle, and Treiva Williams to grant her a clean release from her “Love & Hip Hop: Hollywood” contract.
In a lengthy post on her Instagram page, Moniece revealed she’s tried to get out of her contract before because continuing to do the show has had a negative impact on her emotionally.
Read her full post below.
As I have a moment to reflect. Peace and quiet. Just me, by myself. There are a few things I wanna get off my chest.
I want to thank @monascottyoung@stefateaser & @msrocc68 for this opportunity and platform. It’s allowed me to be able to financially provide for myself and my son. Secondly, I have to thank everybody that encourages me and supports me and has grown with me over the past 5 seasons. Since Season 1 until now.
There comes a time when we (adults), have to be honest with ourselves. A while ago. I arrived at a place where I realized continuing to come back (when I felt myself slipping emotionally/mentally) was doing me more harm than good.
But after being told no to a clean release, and not being able to pursue other avenues in television; I simply returned to ensure my son was taken care of. At the top of this season, when I was told no to a release, I had a complete mental breakdown. I chose intensive outpatient therapy and medication.
But today, I’m in a place where I absolutely can not take any more. For any reason. I’m miserable. I have completely run out of steam. I have no more to give to this franchise. It’s sucked the life out of me. My depression. My anxiety. My sleep deprivation. My weight loss. Are at an all-time high. And with a slightly teary stare, I am begging you. Humbly. Desperately. Please. Release me. I don’t know how else to drive it home. But I feel like I’ve run out of options.
Just release me. Let me go. And let’s be thankful for 5 amazing seasons. But I need off this ride. For my sanity. For my son. For myself. I neeeeeeeeddddd to be released. #withlove❤️
This is really sad. Many people have no idea how some of these reality TV show contracts sometimes look like Diddy drafted them.
I hope Mona and her execs grant Moniece’s request because I’d like to see her go.
