So, if your sex tape is breaking records, do you consider that to be a compliment? I have to put that question out to you readers since Kim Kardashian isn't returning my calls. Apparently, Mimi Faust'svideo sexcapades are making her more famous than the VH1 reality show on which she stars!
I guess if you're going to make a sex tape, and said sex tape is going to be available for public viewing, you'd better be prepared for people to poke fun at video of you doing the dirty, right? Perhaps we should ask Kim KardashianMimi Faust! The Love & Hip Hop: Atlanta star isn't ashamed of the tape that she intentionally leaked to thwart the guy who stole it from turning a profit. Is that a prerequisite for a leaked sex tape? It has to be stolen and then offered up to Vivid by the "thief" before the participants will begrudgingly agree to release it themselves. It seems like it happens a lot…
Mimi may be proud of her video, but that isn't stopping Real Housewives of Atlanta'sKandi Burruss from poking fun at her. In a series of Instagram videos, Kandi posted a spoof of Mimi's romp. Describing the first clip, she writes, "I was trying to figure out how @Mimifaust was able to pull up on that shower rod….I think I weigh too much for this!" She follows that up with the caption: "#part2 I need a #MiMiShowerRod…Where do they sell those? #ThisIsWhatHappensWhenToddGoesOutOfTown #ImPerfectingMyTricksForWhenToddGetsBack Lol!"
The raunchy tape featuring the Love & Hip Hop Atlanta star was intentionally leaked and a source shares that Mimi made $100,000 on Mimi & Nikko: Scandal in Atlanta. Steve Hirsch admitted he knew the tape would be huge, but it was a "struggle" to get it released. “It would be against privacy laws [to release it without consent] so Steve had to talk to Mimi and Nikko,” Vivid’s press manager said. “We let them know that this tape was stolen from them along with the camera. He asked them if they wanted to cooperate and have us distribute or take a chance at that guy? They agreed to distribute!”
But now Mimi is proud of her sexytime romp! “I was thinking about me and my family and doing it because I want to," Mimi told Hollywood Life.
Call the drama police, because this season of Love & Hip Hop: Atlanta is shaping up to be one for the record books. VH1 just released the trailer for season three and there is a shooting, a paternity test, the fallout over the release of a sex tape and plenty of cat fights and relationship tensions.
The new season of Love & Hip Hop: Atlanta premieres on Monday, May 5 at 8PM ET/PT and includes the regular cast of characters, along with a few new additions. Up-and-coming rapper, Waka Flocka Flame and his fiancé, Tammy Rivera, Scrappy‘s new girl, Bambi, plus Yung Joc and Kalenna Harper all join the show for season three. Now, let the fireworks begin.
Kirk Frost's threesome and baby hating on Love & Hip Hop: Atlanta seems like decades ago. Since the reunion aired, his nasty deeds and hurtful behavior seemed to evaporate with every baby shower thrown for wife Rasheeda Frost and posed Instagram pictures with Kandi Burruss. Does no one remember what a douche Kirk was? Am I crazy?
Regardless, Kirk and Rasheeda have put his dirty d and their marital problems behind them and welcomed a beautiful baby boy. Hey, if they're happy, good for them. With the recent insanity surrounding Benzinogetting shot on the way to his mother's funeral, it's nice to hear something positive from the show. Rasheeda posted the above picture on her Instagram to show how hard she's been working to return to her pre-baby body, and I have to say she looks amazing. Damn girl.
Um, when you start to mess with Benzino, you're messing with this girl. It's no secret that the neckless wonder is my favorite person from the entire Love & Hip Hop franchise. He's equal parts harmless and unintentionally hilarious. So to the idiot who shot him while he was en route to his mother's funeral (yes, you read all of that correctly), shame on you. What is this world coming to?
Obviously, 'Zino is thankfully doing alright after the ordeal, and I know this courtesy of Stevie J.'s Instagram. Could this story get any more twisted? The Love & Hip Hop: Atlanta star is recuperating after being rushed to the hospital following a shooting which occurred during his mother's funeral procession. I don't even know what to make of this situation.
Mark my words…one day Mona Scott-Young is going to take over the world. How else can it be explained that the Love & Hip Hop franchise remains so popular? The messier it gets, the more people want to watch–myself included! The woman is an evil genius, I tell you!
As fans of the VH1 train wrecks (yes, plural) are well aware, the casts of both New York and Atlanta are virtual revolving doors of ratchetness. I don't know why some hip hop artists would choose to become famous for their drama as opposed to their talent, but it seems like a pretty regular occurrence with these folks!
