The family drama between Scrappy, his mother Momma Dee, and his wife Bambi is enough to fill its own series. The Love & Hip-Hop stars have famously been at odds for months, with their recent storyline unveiling more context to their strained relationships. With this current season now behind them, Scrappy and Bambi sat down at the reunion to talk about one poignant moment from the season and how it affected them all. Bambi opened up about how she sometimes feels she might be to blame for the state of their family.
Momma Dee has always been at odds with Scrappy’s girlfriends but took particular issue with his wife, Bambi. Unlike other women, Bambi has tried to establish clear boundaries that her husband Scrappy has worked hard to honor with her. This means that Momma Dee, who is always trying to come for Bambi, is not welcome in their home or around their kids. Momma Dee tried to combat this in an earlier episode, standing outside with a bullhorn, trying to get the children to come out.
On several IG posts, Momma Dee maintains that Bambi is just trying to get between her and her son and is possibly jealous of Dee and her relationship with Scrappy’s ex Shay. Momma Dee has cursed Bambi out, even calling her insecure and jealous. Bambi has maintained that things are not as bad as Momma Dee tries to make them seem and that, off camera, the ladies actually get along well.
During one of the most powerful scenes of the season, Scrappy opened up to his mother in front of the entire cast. The rapper begged his mother and wife to be cordial for him and admitted to feeling helpless and in need of some support. Scrappy told the women they are all he’s got and confessed that his upbringing made things very hard for him when it came to connecting and speaking out. Momma Dee famously ran a brothel and trap house when he was a child. In the end, Dee seemed to be softening up and promised her boy she would try harder to make things better. The family hugged it out, and not a single eye was dry in the room.
Scrappy got emotional again during the reunion rewatching the scene. “That was my first time being real and honest,” he said while sitting low in his chair, trying to hide his emotions. “I’m a product of [her.] But at the same time, I don’t judge her cause that’s how she took care of her kids. I appreciate that lady but I ain’t finna bow down to disrespect on the household. My baby’s in there. I’m trying over here.” Scrappy says his mother’s words don’t match her actions when it comes to how she treats his wife.
Bambi agrees but admits it is tough because she feels like she has put a wedge between the mother and son by standing up for herself. She believes it is her fault because she sees how much Scrap loves his mother. Scrappy cuts her off and asks if she knows how much he loves her to audible awws from the audience.
Since the clip has went viral, Bambi has received a ton of support from fans. Scrappy also received praise from fans who were proud of the rapper for putting his wife first.
