Sources close to the show claimed that production was stopped after Shanda, 34, and her husband Willie Taylor and Hazel-E, 39, and her boyfriend Devon B got into a physical fight.

The reported brawl broke out when Shanda called her Love & Hip Hop: Hollywood costar out for colorist posts she made on Instagram about darker skinned woman.

In a bizarre 2017 rant, Hazel wrote in part, “I see all you black a** b***hes that hate me. Stop bleaching your skin, and fix the inside first and maybe all you h**s wouldn’t be so mad...Sorry my mom kept me away from these type of girls all my life, she said they would hate me because I’m light skin she was right.”

Though the fight reportedly caused the entire set to devolve into chaos, it apparently wasn’t enough to get anyone fired. Sources claimed that filming has restarted and both couples are still in the house.
