Last night's Love & Hip Hop Atlanta was especially hilarious. While we weren't treated to nearly enough of Joseline Hernandez' one-liners, we did get to witness the most backwards and ridiculous job interview I've ever seen. K. Michelle proved yet again that she's not at all homophobic (cough, cough), and we got to meet Lil' Scrappy's amazingly normal dad. I wasn't expecting that at all!
Mimi Faust is meeting up with Stevie J. to talk about their daughter, but of course, he wants to know all about the Stevie knock-off she's dating. Why does Mimi act so suprised that he isn't able to have an adult conversation? Stevie gets offended that Mimi doesn't like their young daughter around the inappropriate Joseline, but it's nothing he can't get past with some smooth talk and a shot of liquor. What do these women see in him? He reminds her that beside their daughter, they also share a matching tattoo that will bind them together forever. Is he for real?
It turns out that Traci is friends with Shay, so the pair are lunching and chatting about the Lil' Scrappy and Erica Dixon situation. Shay wanted to pay back Scrappy for his behavior, but she's tempted to just be happy that he's happy. Traci agrees that the latter is the better route. She's spent so much time plotting and slashing tires and beating up girls in the course of her time with Drew, and she tells Shay it's better just to let time heal all wounds. Shay is not quite convinced, and I am officially scared of Traci.
Traci is going to meet with Drew to talk about their recent blow-up, and she calls them a "family." She reveals that she was so in love with Drew, but I don't think she needs to be using the past tense. Traci gives a little history on their past before dropping off Little Drew with the baby-sitter. Over lunch, she tells Drew that she deserves better than seeing him with different girls and groupies every night. He reminds her that they haven't been a couple in seven years, because she clearly thinks they are still together. When Drew straight-up says he just wants to discuss her investing in his sneaker boutique, she storms out of the restaurant, promising to give him her money once she's calmed down. Yeah, that sounds like a great idea!
Mimi Faust is on a date with her new boyfriend Nikko. She reveals that he's a blast from the past, and she hopes that he will understand that she comes with baggage…in the form of Stevie J. Nikko realizes that everyone has skeletons in their closet, but his aren't haunting him like Mimi's are. Mimi admits that Stevie has given her some major trust issues, and she's worried that Nikko is a music producer like her ex.
Nothing gets old when it comes to the folks of Love & Hip Hop Atlanta! Last week, Lil' Scrappy was chasing down his fiance's car, and this week, he's trying to make peace. K. Michelle throws major shade at Kirk Frost, but she also has bigger fish to fry because her love instruments aren't totally in tune. These folks never disappoint, y'all…that's for sure!
Even though he and his mom were chasing down Erica Dixon's car to get to her coveted engagement ring, Lil' Scrappy can't be mad at her for long. He heads to a jewelry store to find an appeasement gift, and Momma Dee joins him to spout off about Erica's disrespect to her. When she calls her son's fiance a disrespectful bish (repeatedly), Scrappy reminds his mother that Dee doesn't know best. Scrappy eyes a watch as his mother leaves…perhaps he wasn't looking for a gift for Erica, but rather a surprise for himself.
Joseline Hernandez continues to complain to her booking agent Dawn about her relationship with Stevie J. Based on his recent interactions with her, Joseline can't figure out which one of the two is more crazy…Stevie for dressing like a poor man's Steve Urkel, or her for inviting him back into her bed. Should we just consider it to be a tie?
OhLove & Hip Hop Atlanta, you know how to make even a family meal a drama fueled brawl! Last night was an endless hour of craziness and candle tossing. Let's get to it, shall we?
Karlie Redd makes her first appearance of the season, and Rasheeda Frost and Tracey Steel come join her in the studio. The three women are anti-K. Michelle for talking smack about them in songs and on social media. Karlie hopes to enlist her friend to join her in a diss song, but Rasheeda doesn't to waste her voice on the rivalry. She'll definitely think consider it though.
Erica Dixon is getting dinner ready for Lil' Scrappy, and he's telling her about Momma Dee's ambush with Shay. Erica is not happy with this turn of events. She thinks it's incredibly disrespectful for Shay to keep sharing her feelings for Scrappy knowing full well he's engaged. Scrappy and Erica think that Momma Dee needs a sit down. He seems to be a much more devoted partner to Erica this season, although VH1 really needs to consider bringing back his subtitles.
After Stevie spends the night with Joseline, she decides that she can't handle a relationship with him knowing that Mimi is never going away. Joseline wants to focus solely on her career, and she requests Stevie's undivided attention if he wants to stick around. He asks her to make him breakfast before she starts her day, but Joseline is no fool. She hits the road and leaves Stevie hungry.
Erica Dixon tells fiance Scrappy that her mother is having issues with their wedding. She wishes her mom would be more supportive, and Scrappy is tired of both of their mothers overstepping their boundaries. While Erica knows she'll never have Momma Dee on her side, she is confident that she can get her mom on the same page as Scrappy if she can arrange a sit down for the duo. Scrappy concedes…he'll let Erica's mom get to know him–and his multiple personalities.
I realize that there is no way to use subtitles in jail, so I am quite concerned as to how officers are going to communicate with Atlanta rapper and reality personality Lil' Scrappy. Yep, that's right! Poor Scrappy is back in the clink.
VH1's most drama-filled series of wacky ridiculousness is back, and this season we've got some new players. Lord help us all! Last night was the much anticipated premiere of the second season of Love & Hip Hop Atlanta, and it did not disappoint. Stevie J is just as creepy as usual, Benzino's head is still far too big for his body, and the ladies are all still making pretty horrible life choices. Well, all the ladies except for Joseline Hernandez…she's too busy keeping it real—real crazy!
The episode starts with a full on shower scene starring Mimi Faust. As she primps for the day, she admits to cleaning house, and I assume she means both literally and figuratively. Of course, Mimi walks out of the bathroom and Stevie J and their daughter in bed together. Mimi explains that it's not what viewers think. She crashed at Stevie's the night before and Joseline (who lives there) stormed in and disrespected little Eva. As the former couple cuddles in bed, they discuss the previous night's events, Mimi tells Stevie that she doesn't want Joseline around her daughter. It's settled. Mimi will start staying at Stevie's house to serve as Joseline repellent. She's not ready to commit to him just yet…she'll just live with him in the meantime. Way to be strong, Mimi!
Erica Dixon and Lil' Scrappy are living together and planning their wedding, but Erica wants him to cut down on his swag. According to him, his swag is at the tenth level, while Erica believes his labels need to be on a budget. Scrappy spends $2000 a month on clothing, but he's willing to compromise on a wardrobe budget of $1200…sometimes. Am I wrong, or was he behind on child support last season? Is a Gucci label more important than providing for his child?
Breaking news, y'all! Some of the things we see on VH1's Love & Hip Hop franchise aren't actually true! Yes, that's right! Relationships, fights, and drama are faked for the sake of entertainment. I know, I know. I couldn't believe it either. I'll give you a moment to deal with this shocker…
There are some major rumors swirling around the original Love & Hip Hop, as well as Love & Hip Hop Atlanta. My initial guess was that Joseline was actually a Julliard trained actress who graduated magna cum laude from Harvard, but I was a tad off base. Still, it's good gossip, nonetheless! We'll start with the tame and move along to some really juicy deets which involve the Ericas from both series. Read on!
