During the season, she suffers a miscarriage and gets into a car wreck while he is away on tour. In season two, Soulja has a fling with her former friend Nas, igniting several violent brawls between the two girls.
Although it is not revealed at any point onscreen, Nia and Soulja break up while filming season three, with Soulja being fired from the show after threatening to kill her on social media. Nia would continue to appear on the show as a friend and confidante to the other girls, but in more of a background role, with only one green screen appearance in season four and no storyline of her own. A storyline involving a possible romance with Lil' Fizz was filmed but left on the cutting room floor.
Nia does not attend the fourth season reunion, eventually disappearing from the show altogether without any on-screen explanation. She returns briefly in the special Ray J & Princess' Labor of Love, while attending Princess' baby shower party, and in one episode of season six, while attending Apryl and Fizz's housewarming party.
