The raunchy tape featuring the Love & Hip Hop Atlanta star was intentionally leaked and a source shares that Mimi made $100,000 on Mimi & Nikko: Scandal in Atlanta. Steve Hirsch admitted he knew the tape would be huge, but it was a "struggle" to get it released. “It would be against privacy laws [to release it without consent] so Steve had to talk to Mimi and Nikko,” Vivid’s press manager said. “We let them know that this tape was stolen from them along with the camera. He asked them if they wanted to cooperate and have us distribute or take a chance at that guy? They agreed to distribute!”
But now Mimi is proud of her sexytime romp! “I was thinking about me and my family and doing it because I want to," Mimi told Hollywood Life.
Call the drama police, because this season of Love & Hip Hop: Atlanta is shaping up to be one for the record books. VH1 just released the trailer for season three and there is a shooting, a paternity test, the fallout over the release of a sex tape and plenty of cat fights and relationship tensions.
The new season of Love & Hip Hop: Atlanta premieres on Monday, May 5 at 8PM ET/PT and includes the regular cast of characters, along with a few new additions. Up-and-coming rapper, Waka Flocka Flame and his fiancé, Tammy Rivera, Scrappy‘s new girl, Bambi, plus Yung Joc and Kalenna Harper all join the show for season three. Now, let the fireworks begin.
What a difference a few months and a baby make! Remember back when we were all wondering if Rasheedaand Kirk Frost's horrific relationship drama was just for a story line on Love & Hip Hop Atlanta? Surely Kirk wouldn't tell his pregnant wife to get an abortion and then run off to have a filmed threesome at Benzino's cabin in real life, would he? On second thought, it may be worse to do that for ratings…
In a new interview with Dallas' 97.9 The Beat Studio, Scrappy confronts rumors that he was fired from L&HH and reveals that his latest arrest was cause he was defending his girlfriend. Modern romance, baby. I will so totally brawl in front of the nacho cheese dip dispenser for you!
On getting arrested recently for fighting in a gas station with former friend Kenny Rogers, Scrappy insists he is not to blame! "Somebody I know – he got real disrespectful. I told him, 'I'm on probation, I can't be doing all this.' He done said the wrong thing to me a couple times – and other occasions as well – so it was really backed up," Scrappy explains.
The latest rumor to plague the massively popular show is that Lil' Scrappy is saying sayonara. Now this story originates from Media Take Out so put your skepticism hats on, but rumor has it the rapper was FIRED and replaced with Waka Flocka Flame!
Apparently Scrappy was surprised to learn of this termination because he tweeted "Not true" when asked about the rumor. He added that he wasn't sure if Waka Flocka was joining the cast but he certainly isn't leaving!
Rasheeda shared earlier this morning that she was in labor and heading to the hospital and Tweeted, "It's time!". The pregnant reality star followed it up later with a photo of her pregnant belly dressed in a hospital gown. Just a few hours after that, she revealed that baby Karter had made his entrance into the world.
VH1 Tweeted confirming his arrival. "Baby Karter is here!!!!! CONGRATS to @RASHEEDA + @FROST117!".
Congrats to the new parents on their bundle of joy! We can't wait to see pics.
VH1 continued to dominate Monday night withT.I. and Tiny (3.707 million) and Marrying the Game (2.994 million). Consider us impressed!
On Bravo, part one (of three!) of the Real Housewives of Orange County reunion garnered 2.128 million viewers, which is down from last week's season high of 2.386 million. Will you tune in next week to see Gretchen, Heather, Alexis, Vicki, Tamra, and Lydia hash out more of 2009's season 8's drama?
It's so haa-arrr-arrd to say good-bye to Stevie Jaaaaaaayyyyeeeeeee! Last night's final installment of the Love & Hip Hop Atlanta reunion was bittersweet. On one hand, it's been an emotional roller coaster of a season, and this girl is drained, but on the other, speaking like Lil' Scrappy in the off-season tends to draw some strange looks in my place of biz-nigh-ee.
We'll jump right back into where Mona Scott Young left us…with Rasheeda and Kirk Frost's dysfunctional marriage. The audience is stunned to re-watch Kirk suggest his wife get an abortion, and he says–with a straight face, no less!–that pulling out was a legitimate form of birth control. What, is he sixteen? Mona scolds Kirk when he laughs over the footage of his affair, and he again relays to Mona that he believes Rasheeda gave him a free pass. Mimi Faust is all "oh no he didn't" from the sofas, and Drew knows better than do anything but nod in agreement to Mimi's outcry since he's sitting between her and Traci Reece.
