The long arm of the law has finally caught up with Love & Hip Hop Atlanta'sStevie J. And no it is not over a shooting at a funeral or for allegedly abusing his current girlfriend. TMZ is reporting that Stevie J was arrested on failure to pay child support. Child support that he has not paid in over 13 years!
It is also against the law to leave a state in which you owe more than $10,000 in back child support. It is not clear if these charges were filed as well, but the child support is due in NYC and he films in Georgia…so I would say he is also guilty of violating the Child Support Recovery Act.
But none of that is the shocking part. The shocking part is just how much he owes.
Last night's Love & Hip Hop: Atlanta highlighted the opening of Stevie J.and No-Neck's new venture…and I am going to venture a guess that we didn't even see the tiniest portion of the real drama that occurred that night! Sleazy and Zino's Bistro and Bar is becoming an actuality. Stevie and Benzinohave brought their ladies to check out the space. Joseline Hernandez has grand plans to perform at the club once a week–maybe nightly–because everyone loves seeing what she has to offer. She bonds with Benzino's new love Althea, warning her that KarlieRedd will be back for No-Neck's money given the opportunity. The women laugh over the fact that Althea used to "hang with" Mimi Faust's sex tape co-star back in the day. I just don't get what is so appealing about Nikko. Joseline has heard that Althea gets around, so this news isn't surprising to her. Across the space, Sleaze and Zeen toast to their nightlife endeavor, and Benzino reveals his grand plans to propose to Althea. I cannot get to Atlanta fast enough to belly up to the bar at this magnificent establishment.
Rasheeda's grand plans to make Kirk Frost jealous with a girls' trip to New Orleans are quickly deteriorating. Kirk doesn't think that his wife needs to be out partying when she should be home tending to their son. At least he's finally claiming paternity! Rasheeda can't understand why it was perfectly fine for him to have a threesome at Benzino's cabin, but she can't take off for Mardi Gras for a few days. The couple is taking son Karter for a check-up, and Kirk wants the doctor to tell Rasheeda just how bad it is for her mother to kiss Karter on the mouth. The doctor shares that young babies are definitely receptive to germs, and she discourages them from allowing anyone to kiss the baby on the mouth. Perhaps she should also warn Kirk that it is probably unsanitary for Karter to be chewing on his gold chain as well.
The shiz-nigh-ee is about to hit the fan-ishtas-ee. No, not really…I just love channeling my inner Lil' Scrappy. The Love & Hip Hop: Atlanta star says the darndest things! Scrap has had close to a dozen eggs scrambling to get in his pants this season, but Momma Dee is cracking down on the ladies. Not just any woodland creature can enter her kingdom!
Speaking of, "the Bambi," despite what we saw on Monday's episode, Scrappy and Bambi are still together and more in love than ever…which, in Scrap's case, means he's finally in love!
Know what the ladies of Love & Hip Hop Atlanta need more than anything? If you guessed English lessons, that's a close second. These girls need to take a seat. Calm down. Pop a chill pill. Geez, they are so busy going after one another and looking the other way as their partners' eyes (and other body parts) wander, they never take the time to relax.
After the craziness on this week's episode between Tammy Rivera and Joseline Hernandez, Tammy is speaking out about her beef with the Puerto Rican Princess. While Tammy seems to be trying to create a non-existent storyline (I guess she didn't get the memo that the show is scripted, so Mona will happily write her one!), she does have some valid points about Joseline's shenanigans!
Get the Emmys ready, the crew of Love & Hip Hop Atlanta is all about the heavily scripted drama these days, and it gets more and more obvious each week. Let's get started with the recapped madness, shall we?
Because Mimi Faust cares far too much about her ex's marital status to Joseline Hernandez, Benzino believes the best way to squash their beef is to facilitate a meeting with Mimi,Stevie J., and Dawn. Seriously, how did Dawn land a role on this show? There are so many extras getting screen time this season, it's confusing! Sleazo arrives ready to shut down the Inspector Gadget asses who are hell bent on taking down Hip Hop Weekly. Stevie promises 'Zino that he and Joseline are, in fact, married, but Mimi wants the magazine to print a retraction. Stevie thinks that Mimi must still love him to go to all of this trouble, and he taunts her with his best rat face, saying that he's his own country who doesn't need to follow the laws–or marriage license filings–of the regular folk. He stutters again on his wedding date. So, this is what makes a story line? Geez, Mona. You should've run with the sex tape for a few more episodes!
This week's reality TV viewer numbers report is nothing but bad news. As I predicted, Married to Medicine lost a ton of viewers without Real Housewives of Atlanta's lead-in. Only 921,000 watched Dr. Heavenly's shady dinner party this week. That's down 642,000 since last week and almost 1.5 million since the season two premiere.
What do you get when you mix this story with this story? Snake on a Plane! Get it? So sorry, but I couldn't resist. :)
I guess Southwest had better up its game so that people forget quickly about the airline that kicked Benzino off a plane! Quick, someone cue one of those hilarious YouTube clips of the flight attendant giving her hilarious pre-flight instructions that have gone viral (seriously, have you seen them? Hysterical!)!
The Love & Hip Hop Atlanta star has had a big few days. Not only was he married in Vegas (no doubt it will be featured this at some point on the show!), he also had quite the expletive laden exit during a Chicago layover on a flight from Las Vegas to Atlanta.
