My, oh my! I'd forgotten so much about how last season's Love & Hip Hop: Atlanta ended, so I was like a kid at Christmas watching the highlights. The three-way proposal! The three-way three-way! If this season is half as dramatic as last, we are in for a train wreck. Last night's premiere didn't disappoint. Stevie J. is certainly stepping up in the world, isn't he? He's living in the White House with Joseline Hernandez. Their shared mansion is 18,000 square feet, and the pair pour champagne for breakfast. It's a long way from Benzino's sofa! Joseline reveals that the couple got married in a courthouse, and she's ready for a lavish wedding. The dress she wants is only $25,000. A steal! Stevie wants a wedding celebration too, but first he'd like to focus on a shared birthday party since they were born one day apart.
Rasheeda and Kirk Frost are "back together" for the sake of their son Carter. Of course, by "back together" I mean they are living in the same house and co-parenting their newborn, but Rasheeda has banished him to a separate bedroom and I can guarantee you he's not getting any love from her. I'm sure he's keeping himself sane courtesy of the threesome memories from No Neck's cabin. Here's hoping Kirk doesn't act like as much of a douche as he did last season!
Well I never thought I'd type the following words…I kind of agree with Stevie J. from Love & Hip Hop Atlanta. Before you jump all over me (or before I commit myself to the nearest nut house), let me clarify that I agree with what he is saying, not necessarily his motivation for saying it. I think we all know that Stevie J. is no saint and his judgment of ex Mimi Faust'srecord breaking sex tape falls flat.
While Stevie is all "I can't believe she did that," all I really hear is "I can't believe she did that without me." He's certainly no angel, but his best pal Benzino–glad to see you're feeling well enough after that shooting to give interviews about your friend, boo! (No, really, I have a strange infatuation for this man…ugh!)–is claiming that Stevie is only worried about the couple's young daughter. Understandably.
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.
