I'll give it to the cast of Love & Hip Hop Atlanta…they are willing to share the spotlight and the drama! One week, it's all about Stevie J. and his love rhombus, and the next week, Benzino's mountain weekend takes center stage. It's compromise at its most pure form…
Kirk Frost's actual threesome is happening on camera. Whatever happened to the subtle innuendo of a man walking two hoochies into his bedroom and America knowing what was getting ready to happen? Did we really need to see the naked backs and the massages? Gahhhh. The following morning, Kirk knows he's got a lot of things to fix, but he hasn't had so much fun since the late 90's. Benzino thinks that his friend has made a major marriage error, and he questions Kirk as to whether a threesome with video vixens was "the pass" Rasheeda had given him. Kirk couldn't care less. He had a hot tub and some biznizzles…it was meant to be. Please forgive me for trying to get my inner Scrappy on, but it's so much fun!
It's no secret that one of my guilty pleasures is the cray-cray drama of Love & Hip Hop Atlanta. But, if I'm going to be totally honest, trying to figure out Lil' Scrappy's secret language is something I look forward to each Monday. I honestly think that if I could get Shay to go away (man, she bugs!), Scrappy and I would be the best of friends.
Sure, he may not be in the running for Father of the Year, but there is something about Scrappy that is so endearing. Now, he's won my heart over even more as he's planning to start preaching sobriety and clean living to teens. Don't even try to tell me it's PR. I don't care. I lov-is-nigh-ee it!
Okay, if I didn't already know that Love & Hip Hop: Atlanta was scripted, I think Kirk Frost's mountain weekend last night would have been a dead giveaway. Seriously? The dude has a pregnant wife and he has cameras following his every move. I hope both he AND Rasheeda are laughing their way to the bank with that VH1 storyline! Let's get started, shall we?
Kirk heads to Benzino's to vent about his pregnant wife making a video with HIS money from THEIR joint account. Benzino thinks that his friend is starting to wage a battle on his wife, and he hates seeing a "power couple" like the Frosts crumbling. He thinks his friend needs to get away from the city and the strip clubs and head to the lake. Kirk will be able to clear his head, and hopefully Benzino will forget he can't find love in the ATL.
Last night's Love & Hip Hop: Atlanta was a hair-raising event. There were pee tests gone wrong, break-ups gone terribly wrong, and the worst weave and bubbly cocktail establishment opening to date in the history of reality television. Of course, it may have been the first weave and cocktail store ever, but still….
Karlie Redd calls Mimi Faust to give her some intel about Nikko. The women head out shopping, and while Mimi finds Karlie to be super messy, she wants to hear what Karlie has to say. Karlie reveals that Nikko has been trying to hook up with her, and she has text messages from friends of friends to prove it. Mimi sees the proof, and it's almost as if she's gotten the excuse she wanted to kick Nikko to the curb.
After Joseline Hernandez and Stevie's J.'s blow-up, he feels like he was too harsh on her. Translation: Now that he's got Mimi in his back pocket thanks to the BMW purchase, he needs to straighten things out with the one groupie who will do anything for him. Joseline admits that she has a tough exterior, but she's missed her Stevie. She wants to work on her music with him, and he thinks that they need to go the independent route to promote her new songs. The pair share a pinky swear and all is right with the world.
Last night's Love & Hip Hop Atlanta was all about a watch analogy. K. Michelle realized it was time to act her age (although she may have had a little hiccup), Nikko was ready to clean Stevie J.'s clock when Stevie tried to upstage him in the gift-giving department, and Mimi Faust seems poised to give Stevie a "second" chance. Sorry, that last one was a stretch!
After their bust-up, Joseline Hernandez meets with Stevie J. to get her money from her international record deal. She doesn't want to fight with him, but she's tired of him bleeping every other bleeping bleeps and buying TVs for hos. His bleep is raw, and Joseline doesn't want it anymore…she just wants her contract and her big record deal. Unfortunately, Stevie drops the bomb that the deal fell through. Oh, and if you didn't already know, he owns Joseline. Please.
Whoa, Nellie! Last night's Love & Hip Hop Atlanta was full of bleeped out rants and blurred out bodies, so basically it was like any other Monday night!
Mimi Faustand Ariane are still vacationing in New York City on what has to be the least fun trip ever. While Mimi is over all things with K. Michelle, she is concerned that Ariane is straddling the fence. She needs to choose between Mimi and K. Michelle. Ariane assures Mimi of where her loyalty lies, and Mimi asks for her take on Nikko. Not beating around the bush, Ariane tells her friend that she believes Nikko is not very genuine, but she's happy as long as Mimi is happy.
Lil' Scrappy has called Shay in Erica Dixon's absence. She is happy to come by and give him a massage and chat about their relationship. The pair decides–much to Shay's chagrin–that sex ultimately ruined their friendship, and they'll have to cut out the "benefits" portion of their relationship. Of course, Scrappy makes this decision while rubbing on Shay in his bed. No one is shocked, are they?
Is it just me, or is NO ONE getting along on Love & Hip Hop Atlanta? Friends are turning on one another, and couples are crumbling. Last night, Benzino was the only voice of reason–is that a sign of the apocalypse?
After a cuss-filled rant at the video shoot, Mimi Faust meets up with her biffle Ariane to hash out the fight they had. Both women agree that K. Michelle has a big mouth, but Ariane thinks that Nico and Johnny should have handled the situation better. She tells Mimi that the two men shouldn't have ganged up on K. Michelle, but Mimi isn't willing to forgive her friend. Ariane persuades Mimi to join her on a quick trip to New York City where she will be visiting with K. Michelle. She hopes her two friends will work through their differences. Mimi won't shed her tough-girl exterior, but she would love to grab a drink at The Drunken Monkey. Someone warn Big Ang, STAT!
Momma Dee want to clear the air withLil' Scrappy regarding her end of engagement cake, but she admits that her son hurt her feelings with all of his negative talk. He still can't understand how his mother can claim she loves him and wants the best for him while disrespecting him. Of course, Scrappy is appeased (and slightly shocked) when Dee apologizes, but she is quick to reveal out of his earshot that she doesn't mean it. She's thrilled that Erica Dixon is out of the picture, and she loved the delicious EOE cake!
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.
