Olivia dishes on cast beefs

    Now that "Love & Hip Hop" has wrapped up for the season, Olivia’s giving her thoughts on what went down.

    Olivia and Nancy haven’t crossed paths too often this season. In fact, the last time we remember seeing them together was when Chrissy Lamplin asked Jim Jones to marry her.

    Since then, Nancy has taken more than a few shots at Olivia on Twitter. The singer let Mama Jones spout off for a while before she retaliated, but the crew of "The Breakfast Club" wanted to know if Jim is mad at her for talking back to his mom.

    "How can you be mad at me? First of all, she started it and I let her go on for a minute," Olivia said. "You can’t just  expect to disrespect me and I’m not going to say nothing. We’re both grown women."

    Olivia also found herself in the middle of another cast feud this season as Chrissy went to war with Jim’s former manager, Yandy Smith. While Yandy didn’t require Olivia to pledge her allegiance, Chrissy questioned her loyalty.

    Chrissy confronted Olivia about the situation during a lunch, where some viewers think the singer looked a little shook by Jim’s fiancee.

    "Not scared at all.  It had nothing to do with fear, I’m just not choosing sides. Why should I have to choose sides. We’re all grown ups,"   "I told both of them! I told Yandy where I thought she was wrong and I told Chrissy where I thought she was wrong. 

    But the big question on everyone’s mind is what was Olivia thinking when she turned down the three-album deal from EMI. Any other artist in her position would have signed on for it in half a heartbeat, but Olivia didn’t feel like it was the right deal for her because it didn’t offer her enough.

    "I’m passionate about my craft and I’m not going to settle for less. I don’t know why that’s so hard to understand," Olivia said. "Just because other people might just take the first time that comes at them, that doesn’t mean I’m going to."

    She concluded, "It has to make sense all around."

    Olivia may have made the right decision because she said that since she finished taping season 2 of "Love & Hip Hop" better offers have come along. Right now, the singer is just deciding which one to take.
