It’s almost time for Althea Heart and Benzino to welcome “Baby Zino” to the world. And they’re preparing double!
First time mom Althea is due with a baby boy in the next few weeks and is getting everything squared away in advance – including clearing up any relationship drama with Benzino. Lately the once-tumultuous couple appears happy and focusing on parenthood. But, of course, they’re not completely abandoning reality TV!
There is always some sort of drama in Atlanta (or Milwaukee, in this case), isn’t there? If it isn’t the stars of RHOA stirring it up, it’s the stars of Love and Hip Hop Atlanta. This past weekend, Momma Dee landed herself in some hot water when she decided that she was going to enjoy a lavish meal with friends and then skip out on the bill. The Love and Hip Hop star was then arrested, and spent a few hours in the slammer before posting bail.
However, Momma Dee is now speaking out about her arrest this weekend, and according to her, it was nothing more than a big misunderstanding. Um, how you can misunderstand that you ran up a huge restaurant bill and it needs to be paid? Things that make you go hmm….

I guess times aren’t so grand for the kingdom. Momma Dee, the outspoken royal matriarch of Love & Hip Hop Atlanta found herself staying in quarters that weren’t quite fit for a queen after a run-in with the law.
The reality star is the mother of rapper Lil’ Scrappy, and she’s often turning away his love interests at the door to her palace. Only the best for her prince! However, it seems she may have overextended her regal budget after a recent night out in Wisconsin. You’ll recall that Dee wasn’t keen on getting a promissory ring from her ex, now current, husband Ernest at a restaurant known for its chicken wings. Unfortunately, if it’s a higher end establishment, Dee doesn’t want to pay for the service or the amenities.
Three quick lessons that y’all already know: 1) People are stupid; 2) It’s disgusting what people think they can get away with when it comes to deplorable behavior; and 3) If there’s a Love & HipHop franchise that isn’t airing at the moment, its stars will still make headlines. No new information.
With Love & Hip Hop Atlanta ending just this week (I miss you already, Dee!), and Love & Hip Hop Hollywood premiering it’s latest season on Monday, who is even thinking about the original series? It’s filming now so we won’t have to go a week without VH1’s guiltiest pleasure. Thank goodness! However, one half of New York’s most ridiculous couple has landed in the news. Tahiry Jose was allegedly attacked at New York Fashion Week.
The reunion begins with Joseline responding to her statement on an After Party episode that Mimi was her b*tch as well as Stevie’s. She reveals that the pair had a threesome together. Mimi doesn’t deny it, instead she just claims to be sickened by Joseline. Stevie reiterates his same old tired excuse that he had many foggy nights back in the day. It gets pretty intense as Joseline describes the encounter shared, adding that a lot of begging took place. Mimi clarifies that it wasn’t a threesome by definition. Instead, she and Joseline took turns with Stevie, but they were all present. Momma Dee interrupts to remind everyone that as long as you’re having fun that’s all that matters. Ariane never knew about this dalliance, but she’s proud of her friend for being so adventurous. Wasn’t a sex tape adventurous enough? Everyone claims it was a one time thing, and Joseline apologizes for her treatment of Mimi which Mimi seems to accept it. They agree that Stevie has been the root of their issues. Stevie thinks it’s going to be a great night for him–perhaps a replay that he’ll remember this time?
Mona Scott-Young certainly knows what we like–reality drama so scripted it becomes hilarious entertainment! Of course, it’s even better if that drama is created by two certain members of the Love & Hip Hop family. Y’all know to whom I’m referring! Prayers have been answered.
The Puerto Rican Princess and Stebbie are getting a spin-off! Because what better way to reward bad behavior than by giving the couple their very own television show? I mean, if we’re being totally honest, they are the runaway stars of Love & Hip Hop Atlanta. It’s basically the Stevie J. and Joseline Hernandez show anyway…with a multitude of supporting cast! VH1 has just announced the spin-off, as well as the renewal of K. Michelle: My Life. It’s a good day to be a LHH veteran!
Nina Parker, formerly of TMZ and the Insider, is at the helm of this season’s Love & Hip Hop Atlanta Reunion. She can’t do any worse than hosts of the past, can she? In my opinion, she did a good job wrangling Stevie J., Joseline Hernandez, Mimi Faust, Rasheeda and Kirk Frost and crew, but we’ve got another hour next week to draw final conclusions! Off that bat, she begins last night’s first installment by introducing the major players. Thankfully the extras are “holding it down on the couches,” although there are several minor characters missing at this point.
In the finale episode, Stevie takes off to Los Angeles without his bride, but he and Joseline explain that they are “working through things” and happy. Stevie feels proud and healthy due to his sobriety and Joseline doesn’t see the need to accommodate him by curbing her intake…as she states, she’s not going to court. Joseline then turns on her co-stars, saying that if they are nice, she’ll be nice, if they act a fool, well…Nina highlights Joseline’s journey after her last reunion antics from reconciling with Stevie to NOT apologizing to Mimi. Joseline tells Nina that she was in the wrong for wiling out the last time they were in this situation, but everyone was ganging up on her. As for apologizing to Mimi, Joseline doesn’t think her husband’s ex needs to hold her breath. Stevie feels badly for pushing Joseline’s buttons when it came to her working without him, and Karlie Redd expresses her surprise at the bouquet that met the side of her face. Joseline instructs her to speak more loudly like when she bleeps bleep. Geez. Ariane challenges Karlie’s loyalty, and the two have a war of words. Oddly enough, the Karlie and Joseline agree that they could be friends going forward.
