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.
Oh, No-Neck, I am shaking my head at your recent behavior. I thought we were trying to set you apart from the likes of your buddies Stevie J. and Kirk Frost. First the peen selfies and now this? I'm just not sure what to say, Benzino. I'm certainly disappointed, but I can't stay mad at my 'Zino.
Of course, that said, if I was on Benzino's flight from Las Vegas to Atlanta, the Love & Hip Hop Atlanta star would have done nothing to curb my fear of flying. The usually level headed (which, to be honest, is probably a result of not having a neck) reality star went off on a tirade after being questioned by a flight attendant. Not surprisingly, it was all caught on video courtesy of one passenger's smart phone!
Last night's episode started and stopped with lots of lady brawling, beginning right where last week's ended, with Karlie Redd going loco on Yung Joc's realtor/chauffeur/stylist/side piece Khadiyah. As the women are parted, Joc enters the room, and he's so confused as to why the two women he's bedding are fighting after he forced them to spend the afternoon together. After he admits to sleeping with Khadiyah, Karlie tells him he needs to check his hos, and she screams at Khadiyah that she hopes her lady parts taste good. Keepin' in classy! Karlie is so over Joc, and she declares she never wants to see him again…once he gives her a ride home. Joc can't seem to persuade her to get the heck out of his car, and when he exits the vehicle for a hot second, she jumps into the drivers' seat and peels off down the road. Joc laughs to himself…what did he expect?
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!
