Moniece Slaughter: ‘Love And Hip Hop’ Star Wants Out of Series Contract

*Moniece Slaughter of “Love and Hip Hop: Hollywood” fame is ready to call it quits with the popular reality television show.

But she’s hit a bit of a snag… as the part-time singer is currently contractually obligated to appear on the show, and she can’t be involved with any other TV program until series producer Mona Scott Young is done using her.

The mother of one took to her Instagram page to express how grateful she was for the opportunity and why she stayed for so long.

Peep her response 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 to 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❤️

She went on to explain that this was the last straw: “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.

Slaughter has created the hashtag ‘#releasemoniece” for her fans to show support and help spread the word about her desire to leave.
