OG Love & Hip Hop Hollywood cast member Hazel E was fired from the show in controversial fashion just under two years ago — but she might be planning a surprise return. It’s only rumors at this point, but is Hazel E coming back to LHHH as a replacement manager for newbie Summer Bunni, who’s reportedly been brawling with everyone on set?
Hazel appeared to be getting out ahead of something after LHHH Season 4 finished airing, when she went on an extended Twitter tirade and told the world she would “see her way out” of obligations with the show. At the time, Hazel’s Xanax-fueled feud with Masika Kalysha was still going strong, so it was generally believed that she had started something with her co-star.
But just a few weeks later, LHHH producers fired Hazel after she shared a photo of a burning pride flag on Instagram and announced she thought gay people should “burn in hell just like God said in the Bible.”
Which brings us to today. For the past week or so, word on the street has been that Hazel might be making her Love & Hip Hop comeback when LHHH Season 6 drops next month. Though she hasn’t been spotted filming, Hazel is apparently supposed to be returning as the manager for high-profile new cast member Summer Bunni, best known as Offset’s mistress and the biggest reason for Lyrica Anderson and A1 Bentley’s split. Summer and A1 have been dragging each other on social media all summer, and she and Lyrica have apparently already brawled for the cameras at least once.
So, is Hazel E coming back to LHHH? Or is the whole thing just unfounded gossip? At least one person who’s in a position to know things says that the talk 100% fake — that would be Antonio Velaz, Summer’s current manager:

It’s possible that Hazel is coming back to the show in a different capacity, possibly as a guest for a few episodes. Given her fiery departure, though, it’s tough to see how she could have gotten hired back — unless Love & Hip Hop‘s new production company decided to give her a second chance.
In any case, we don’t have long to wait before finding out. LHHH Season 6 debuts Monday, August 5th at 8 PM on VH1.
