Karlie Redd Says Benzino Is A “Good Actor”, Reveals Love & Hip Hop Proposal Ring Was Borrowed

Part of the “love” that made up the premiere season of Love & Hip-Hop: Atlanta stemmed from the relationship between Karlie Redd and Benzino. Despite seeming to move at the speed of light, the duo’s relationship was interesting to watch, even if many questioned its authenticity. During a recent interview with Street Disciplez Radio, Karlie clarified the current state of her relationship with the Hip-Hop Weekly magazine co-founder, and why their coupling seemed to lack genuineness on the show. According to her, viewers had good reason to scratch their heads while watching the courtship between the two unfold, since it involved Benzino drawing on whatever acting skills he possesses for the sake of camera time. She told Street Disciplez Radio:

“Benzino’s a good actor, put it like that. He’s a good actor. And the award goes to…”

When asked whether she knew Benzino was acting during their on screen romance, she said:

“At that point, I knew what it was about. I knew how he is. I started learning, you know. That’s why I said, I basically put him on because if it wasn’t for me, there would be no love on the show for Benzino. He wouldn’t get camera time. So when I said, ‘I put him on’, not that I put him on The Source, I put him on to this, I put him on to that, I put him on the show because without meeting me, he wouldn’t get camera time.”

During the interview, Karlie also shot down any belief anyone may have had that the ring Benzino proposed to her with on the show was a true reflection of how he felt, revealing that the bauble was borrowed:

“He borrowed a ring. I mean yeah, you never borrowed a ring to go on a red carpet? I mean all these celebrities that..half the celebrities they actually borrow Harry Winston to do red carpet, VMAs, or Oscars, or Emmys.”

Karlie plans on returning for a second season of Love & Hip-Hop: Atlanta because she has “unfinished business”. According to reports, season 2 of the show begins filming this month. Check out Karlie’s interview with Street Disciplez Radio below:
