Love & Hip Hop franchise (2012–present)
Shay first appears as a supporting cast member in the first two seasons of Love & Hip Hop: Atlanta, as Lil Scrappy's "friend-with-benefits". She is secretly in love with Scrappy, but he refuses to claim their relationship as anything more than casual sex. Despite Momma Dee's matchmaking attempts, he eventually dumps Shay to pursue a serious relationship with his baby mama Erica. Shay filmed scenes for season three but after a violent altercation during filming, in which she cracked a bottle over a woman's face in a night club brawl, she was removed from the cast and her scenes were left on the cutting room floor.
In 2018, Shay joined the main cast of Love & Hip Hop: Miami. In the first season, Shay relocates to Miami for her man, Pleasure P, who she has been in a long distance relationship with for two years. She quickly clashes with his Pretty Ricky group mate Baby Blue Whoaaaa, before igniting violent feuds with Pleasure's ex Gabby (who she dubs "Mint Chocolate" after the ice cream she threw at her) and "Instagram science experiment(s)" Chinese Kitty and Chinese Nicky. During the season, her relationship with P falls apart. In season two, she struggles with a serious medical issue, amid a violent feud with Jojo.
