Smiley has been through hell on 'Baddies East,' but not everyone is convinced that's true.

Smiley left an impression on the Baddies before the fourth season even officially started. During the audition period for Baddies East, she'd already gotten into fights with another prospective baddie named Mariahlynn Araujo. Ironically, both would end up co-starring in the new season. Naturally, though, the drama didn't stop there. Her feud with Mariahlynn would continue on the show itself, with Smiley even stealing some of her jewelry.

The feud got so heated that two other cast members even took it upon themselves to defend Mariahlynn from Smiley's wrath. No one is a stranger to fights on Baddies, but Smiley has had her fair share of them already.

And if you thought the drama stopped there, you definitely don't know Smiley.

Throughout the course of the season, Smiley had apparently suffered a miscarriage during her pregnancy. While that would be tragic enough on its own, several of her fellow cast members went so far as to believe that she'd faked it. One of them, Mehgan Jones, even posted her accusations about Smiley on social media. Smiley even had to defend herself on Instagram live following the incident.

These rumors continued to follow her in some of her most recent incidents. In the Jan. 7, 2024 episode of Baddies East, the titular baddies took a trip to Jamaica. While there, Smiley had suffered a seizure and was, at one point, surrounded by emergency responders and medical professionals. After coming to, she started to scream for her baby.

However, people continued to accuse Smiley of faking the incident for the cameras.

In an Instagram post responding to the episode's broadcast, Smiley wrote, "It hurt me so bad just to watch! ... Yah don't know how this hurt me to really see this on TV."
