Love & Hip Hop: Atlanta was at the top of its game last night. From Benzino acknowledging that he’s a bit neck deprived to a fight that we didn’t get to see, peppered with some of the best one-liners we’ve heard in a while. It was awesome.
The episode starts with Kalennaand Ashley tearing it up at the strip club. Of course it does. Kalenna has been shirking her recording duties, but Ashley’s getting super possessive about Kalenna focusing on anything other than her. Ashley has even stolen Kalenna’s phone so her husband can’t contact her. When Ashley finally allows Kalenna to call Tony, she’s over their fun times. Kalenna needs to get back in the studio. Also focusing on her career is Tammy Rivera who is hosting a fashion presentation to celebrate the launch of her new clothing line. Both Rasheeda Frost and KarlieRedd are in attendance, and WakaFlocka Flame couldn’t be more proud of his fiancee. I so wish he got more air time! While we aren’t treated to many of her pieces, what I see I really like. Tammy even agrees to elope with Waka instead of having a big wedding.
Well, what a coinky-dink..or as Lil' Scrappy would say a "coince-nigh-ee!"! VH1 show-hopper Bambi Johnson is claiming that she didn't order a hit (is this a Mob Wives crossover?) on her Love & Hip Hop: Atlanta nemesis Erica Pinkett. It just so happens that Bambi's sister and Erica got into a brawl at an Atlanta bar with no connection whatsoever to Bambi or her beef with Erica over Scrappy.
As you recall, Erica was attacked in the restroom of an Atlanta nightclub, and police arrested a woman named Stephanie Nicole Harp who initially fled the scene. Stephanie was charged with aggravated assault and use of a deadly weapon since she reportedly came at Erica with a razor blade. Erica told police that she believed Bambi was the mastermind behind the confrontation.
I am really in total shock after last night's Love & Hip Hop: Atlanta! Benzino was shot? On the way to his mother's funeral? I was certainly not expecting that to happen. Oh wait. Of course, I knew that the horrible incident occurred, but I was admittedly surprised that it was covered on the show–as if Mona knew it was going to happen all along. I wonder how much all the re-shoots and additional scenes cost the network in production. Anyone care to make a wager? I did notice that Benzino's injured arm must be recovering well because in the slow motion scene where he's running to his car because he's carrying his luggage with it. That part had to have been filmed after the fact, right?
Karlie Redd and Erica Dixon are catching up over manicures, and Erica reveals that she kicked O'Shea to the curb…literally. He just had to stand on the curb and whine since his car was out of gas. She was tired of being his piggy bank. The women gossip about all of Althea's conquests. Erica dishes that Ho-thea had a night with Stevie J., and Karlie is laughing because she was also with Mimi Faust's Nikko. There seems to be a lot of cross pollinating going on with this crew. Karlie can't wait to share the news withJoseline Hernandez. That's what friends are for! I think all of these ladies need to broaden their romantic horizons. Certainly Stevie, 'Zino, and Nikko aren't the only players in Atlanta!
There isn't much to report on this week's reality TV viewer numbers. The shows either remained steady or gained a handful of viewers – no big losses, which is good, because most of these shows can't afford to lose any fans. On Sunday, Kandi's Wedding saw a season high with 2.557 million tuning in to see Kandi's bachelorette party, and Married to Medicine garnered 1.706 million viewers.
Apparently Renee Graziano is taking over reality TV. All reality TV. She'll be sowing her wild oats as she spreads the love around VH1. But don't worry – she's not leaving her home showMob Wives!
Renee chatted with Wetpaint about expanding her reality TV palate by taking guest runs on Hollywood Exes to hang out with the cast. Not only is she appearing on Hollywood Exes (which just goes to show you don't have to be a Hollywood ex or even live in Hollywood to make the cut), but we're also going to see her on Love & Hip Hop: Atlanta…also proving that you don't have to live in Atlanta or have any ties to the hip hop community to be in good with Mona Scott Young.
