When VH1 announced the new cast list in February 2021, Nia and Noria Dorsey were introduced, but there was not much hype around them being cast in Season 9. However, the show bloomed to new heights with their entry into the show, following more dramas than ever.

Significantly on the 4th episode, 6th June 2022, on VH1, which would focus on Angel Brinks’ magnificent gender reveal party. The evening was triumphant, with guests picking a blue or pink dress, a helicopter shooting smoke, and whatnot. No one at the party knew what was coming up.

While scrolling IG, fellow cast member Brooke Bailey saw something from Nia’s account that shocked her.

IG Story post: “I got a taste for some outta-wedlock baby shower food!!!!”

Can’t wait to get some today. LOL

Brooke could not wait for a second and swiftly mumbled the matter to co-stars Brandi Maxiell and DJ Duffey, and the trio decided the confront the matter to Angel. All can guess what happened next. More Drama!!!

Of course, Nia’s meme does not go well with Angel when she finds out. On the other hand, Nia confessed her post was just a meme rather than her intention to insult Angel and her baby. Nia brought into the open that she never imagined her post would turn hurtful as she also had a baby out of wedlock.

Though Nia apologized to Angel, the matter did not shut down immediately. In the following episodes, not only Nia but her sister Noria was dragged into all the drama because of the IG post.

Eventually, both Dorsey’s sister leaves the show.
