Last week, we saw Married to Medicine tank without Real Housewives of Atlanta's strong lead-in. This week, the RHOAhusbands revealed special garnered 2.128 million viewers, which is 337,000 more than last week's secrets revealed special. Believe it or not, Married to Medicine saw the exact same increase – 337,000 – in viewers, with 1.563 million tuning in this week. Mariah Huq better hope Kandi's Wedding draws a big crowd!
So far Tammy Rivera and Waka Flocka haven't had much of a story line as the newest cast members of Love & Hip Hop: Atlanta, but my fingers are crossed things will change soon. I find there to be something very endearing, intriguing, and entertaining about Waka, and don't get me started about how much I adore his mother!
Tammy, on the other hand, hasn't piqued my interest as much, but Waka loves her, so she must bring something to the table. However, she has thoughts on infidelity that I just don't understand. It seems to be the norm for the women on this show to forgive the men who cheat while vehemently hating the women with whom they cheated. Um, I hate to break it to these ladies, but the chicks getting with their men have no loyalty to them. Their significant others though? That's a entirely different ball of wax!
Oh, Love & Hip Hop: Atlanta, how you make Mondays worthwhile. While last night's episode was a bit boring in comparison to what we've been watching so far this season, at least their acting skills are improving…or maybe I had one too many glasses of wine. Yeah, that was probably it.
It's date night for Joseline Hernandez and Stevie J. He's trying to wine and dine her so she won't blow up at him when he tells her that their big wedding will have to wait until he's got more money in the bank. Beforehand, they discuss their big plans for a lavish wedding ceremony, and she doesn't seem to upset to postpone the party until they have more cash flow. She is, however, not happy that Stevie can't remember their actual anniversary. Funny, didn't she stumble over the date at her birthday party. Because Mona Scott Young won't grant me subtitles, I can't elaborate on what Joseline is whining about, but it has something to do with getting rid of her booking agent Dawn for not getting her any gigs. Stevie is worried she won't be able to separate out business and friendship when it comes to dealing with Dawn.
I'm curious…do you think VH1 and Mona Scott Young really, truly believe that viewers think Love & Hip Hop: Atlanta is a reality show? The acting is fantastically tragic and there is nothing real about it…except for that sex tape, clearly.
Nikko didn't tell Mimi Faust about his confrontation with Stevie J. immediately after it happened, but he spills the beans when they are driving the next day. When she learns that Nikko has told her ex about the deal Vivid, she has to pull over to read Nikko the riot act. She is cruising in her new vehicle (thanks, Steven Hirsch!), and Mimi doesn't want to wreck it when she wrecks him. As she cusses up a storm, Nikko just laughs that Stevie shouldn't get her riled up like this. Mimi tries to kick him out of her ride, but when he refuses, she's the one who storms off on foot.
Lil' Scrappy is eating eggs with Erica P…or at least he hopes to be scrambling some things with her. He arrives at her house to find out that she's lit candles and served wine, and he wonders whether he's there to pray or have sex. Scrappy is a bit nervous, but he wants to be a better person. He is feeling guilty about Bambi and he wants to think with this head and not his hiz-ead. Scrappy shuts down Erica's advances, complimenting her that he'd definitely be with her if he didn't already have Bambi. And they say romance is dead!
I certainly don't believe Mimi Faust's version of the stolen sex tape which will make her super rich. While she may not have devised the plan with Nikko (who looks like he couldn't plan his way out of a paper bag), I don't think she was as clueless and doe-eyed about it as she tries to appear on Love & Hip Hop: Atlanta. That said, Stevie J. will always be just gross and a little scary in my book. Behind his funny one-liners and ridiculous persona, I see a very manipulative creep who likes to threaten others to make himself feel like a bigger man. When he first started on the show, his behavior towards Mimi was deplorable and based entirely on manipulation and humiliation. I'll get off my soapbox now, but I've known the likes of Stevie. Of course, who am I kidding? All of these people are bat-poo insane!
The latest drama between the pair occurred after Mimi's father died on Wednesday. Stevie shared his condolences with a threatening text message insinuating that Mimi may be dealing with more death than just that of her father. Classy. Of course, Mimi did what every woman who didn't want to escalate a bad situation would do…she posted a screenshot of the text on Instagram.
On Monday, a whopping 3.761 million viewers watched the season 3 premiere of Love & Hip Hop Atlanta. Also, 1.386 million sat through Arianna's nagging on 16 and Pregnant, and RHOC took a turn for the worse with only 1.435 million tuning in to meet Lizzie.Southern Charmended its first season with a 952,600 average after 1.038 million watched the secrets revealed special.
