Moniece announced her departure from Love and Hip Hop: Hollywood (LHHH) this past summer. Now, fans are learning the details behind her contract’s termination. Much of why Moniece is leaving the show has to do with her son, Kameron, with Lil Fizz.
“All season long, they begged me to have this conversation,” Moniece shared in a recent Instagram post in which she delved into her mental anguish, which prevented her from being her greatest self for Kam this past season. “I’d gone through the season totally depressed and alone,” the LHHH star added.
“I explained to [the production team] that I wasn’t willing to sit and have the conversation about the effects my depression had on my son with anyone on the cast because, while I did have genuine friends on the show, I was paranoid and didn’t want to talk about it.”
Moniece went on to tell her social media fans, “I was paranoid that the edit would create a different narrative that wasn’t true as is always the case when it comes to my storyline. They promised me that when it came to my son and this very sensitive topic of emotional and mental health, the edit would be accurate and the narrative would be handled with care.”
There was a segment during this season of Love and Hip Hop: Hollywood in which Moniece isolated herself from Kam and eventually called Lil Fizz for help. Moniece told her Instagram fans that she locked herself in the laundry room of her home so that her son would not hear his mom crying.
The edits, according to the former LHHH star, made it appear as though Kam knew about Moniece’s breakdown and commented on not having a “normal” mom because of her episode. “The night he made the comment of not having a normal mom was a totally different week, for a completely different reason,” Moniece declared.
Still, regardless of how she feels she was portrayed on the show, Moniece told her fans that she hoped her story helped someone.
“I wanted to really get you guys to see that I’m human,” the celebrity mom shared with her Instagram followers. “That I’m leaving because I’m that committed to my healing and my growth for my son. That the check and the exposure has hurt me more ways than it’s ever helped. And that I’m just like everyone else. Hoping that someone’s mother would be brave enough to sit down with her kid(s), and bare her soul, with the sole intent to lead by example that their feelings also deserve validation and that transparency and honesty is the only way to receive help in ANY and ALL areas of their lives.”
“That being imperfect and flawed was okay. Showing them what true perseverance looks like. What healing looks like. What growth looks like. What falling and getting back up looks like. And most importantly that they’re not defined by anyone else’s opinions. That she is not defined by her diagnosis. And that they as a unit are solely defined on how they pull through and show up for one another. I pray that I’ve been able to do that.”

It’s been a long hard road trying to physically embody the word PEACE. I still struggle. I still fall short. I will never be perfect. But I’m always open. I always take accountability. As I prepare to close out my journey on Love & Hip Hop Hollywood, I ask myself daily what I can do to make GOOD use of the platform outside the realm of monetary gain. What I want to leave you guys with in parting. The answer is clear…I want to try my very hardest to leave you with as much encouragement as possible. I’m just like each and every one of you. I have good days. Greater days. I have bad days. However, there’s a certain sense of freedom one will discover, simply by being themself. Being unapologetic. Authentic. Transparent. Accountable. They’ll say your worthless. They’ll say you’re undeserving of good. Deserving of being mistreated. Just know that may be true to them. But it’s not true to the creator. His word over rules & outweighs the negative opinions & views that any mere mortal may speak of, or have of you. Find inner peace. There you will find the ability to love you for you. But most importantly to soar. It’s been a wild ride. A long hard road to tow. But I wouldn’t change it for the world. Every scenario that I felt would break me, strengthened me. Every situation that I felt defined my character, only reshaped me. Every slanderous comment, mistruth, or projection from another, taught me an even more valuable way to resolve conflict. Thank you to @monascottyoung @msrocc68 @stefateaser @easterntelevision @bigfishusa @vh1 @viacom for this platform. For granting me the ability to get back on my feet. For this transformative journey. It hasn’t always been easy for me. I’m not always the easiest to deal with. To my cast mates. Past & present for breaking me. Bringing me to my knees in the most literal sense of the phrase. Because of you, I can honestly say I’m better. Not my best yet, but better. And to you the viewers. Your attempts to humiliate me, judge me, shame me, have humbled me. Some of you have grown with me. Some of you still love to hate me. Thx you, your viewership has kept us alive! With this. I bid you farewell.
Kameron is Moniece’s only child with Lil Fizz. Stay tuned for more Love and Hip Hop: Hollywood family news!
