It seems their services were no longer needed

Margeaux Simms and her girlfriend have been axed from "Love & Hip Hop Atlanta" after just one season and it seems as though the decision came out of left field.

Simms was introduced to the show during the fourth season as the wife of producer Nikko London. She dropped a bomb on her husband when she revealed she was in love with another woman, Merike Palmiste.

After signing contracts for the show's fifth season, sources tell TMZ that Simms and Palmiste were told they were no longer needed. No explanation was provided.

A rep for both women also said they didn't get a signed release and they can't appear in any other shows without it.

Simms and Palmiste's lawyers reached out to producers three weeks ago and are still waiting on the documents. VH1 has yet to respond to the firing.
