'Love & Hip Hop Atlanta'

Beef Up Security ...

Decrease the Ratchet

"Love & Hip Hop Atlanta" producers are making cutbacks on bloodshed by increasing security during shoots, and Lil Scrappy can testify ... it's already saved him from brawling with a FEMALE co-star.

Sources close to production tell TMZ ... Scrappy and a new cast member named Erica Pinkett had to be separated by the new security force after she threw wine in his face during a dinner this week.

We're told producers have added security -- it's now one guard for every cast member --- on all shoots to keep things from getting "too ratchet."

We're also told it isn't just cast-on-cast violence they're guarding against ... it's also civilians trying to attack the show's stars.

As one cast member put it ... "That s*** gets ratchet and now the bodyguards shutting that s*** down."

Words to live by.

How about some investigative journalism into whether Harvey is really using HGH Human growth hormone?

What do you expect when the producers troll the ghetto looking to cast the show. These reality shows only hire freaks and people on the fringe of society. The shows are this generations version of a carnival sideshow.

Is this a real show? It sounds like something that would be on OWN.

This is part of the reason why I think the name of the show should really be, "Hip Hop Heathens." It's fun to watch, but it's also sad because none of these folks have any respect for themselves or each other.

Remember when David got kicked off The Real World because he dragged a laughing Tami across the floor by her towel?
Now they fight on these garbage shows every scene. Please cancel this trash to show people that they can do better with their lives instead of talk trash and fight and curse.

If you have to do all of that, then cancel the show. These folks are stars anyway. Stevie J ONCE was on top and gainfully employed and in the real business THEN he fell off. The rest have no real pedigree. CANCEL THE SHOW especially since now Mimi has cheapened herself. She was the only reason I watched because she was smart, I thought. She fell off too with that ratchet tape. LET IT GO, LET IT GO!
