Love & Hip Hop Atlanta’s First Trans Woman, D. Smith, Opens Up to Tammy Rivera: ‘I Have a Long Way to Go’

Time for new opportunities! In Love & Hip Hop Atlanta's Monday, April 11, episode, D. Smith makes her debut as the franchise's first transgender woman, as seen in Us Weekly's exclusive sneak peek.

The VH1 unscripted series' preview clip shows the Grammy-winning music producer — who is brand new to the show — meeting with Tammy Rivera, who had reached out to Smith through a mutual friend about modeling for the businesswoman's new clothing line.

Before agreeing to model, Smith explains to Rivera that she is "transitioning … from male to female."

"I really had no idea," Rivera, who is married to rapper Waka Flocka Flame, tells the camera. "I mean, I saw her in [another] fashion show, and she had on the dress and heels, and she looked all woman to me."

Smith continues, "Physically, there's some things that are taking place and that have to continue to take place. This is like my first year, so I have a long way to go."

Love & Hip Hop Atlanta airs on VH1 Mondays at 8 p.m. ET.
