Woo. I can’t even. Last night’s Love & Hip Hop: Atlanta reunion was a lot to digest…and even then I barfed it all back up when I watched the finger sucking scene again. The good news? It was the first of three crazy installments! The bad news? It was the first. Of THREE. Mona Scott Young, you are an evil genius, my friend!
The cast arrives, drinks in hand and prep people in tow as if they are walking the red carpet for the Oscars. Perhaps Mona will win an Academy Award for promoting bad acting and ratchet behavior. I think it would be a great category addition to the awards show, don’t you? Erica Dixon, Karlie Redd, Mimi Faust, and Ariane are all getting ready in the same room. Karlie admits she has some secrets she’d like to share, and Erica shares that there are some “animals” she doesn’t want to see. Momma Dee threatens anyone who threatens her family, while Yung Joc nods in agreement. People who wear sunglasses inside always look super douchey. Case in point? Nikko. Bambi tells Lil’ Scrappy that Stevie J. posted a picture on Instagram the morning of the reunion which shows a nekkid The-The on her Knee-Knees about to pleasure the Stevie J. bus. Something tells me his friendship with Benzino isn’t going to survive this train wreck!
K. Michelle has branched out from Love & Hip Hop Atlanta to land her own spinoff. But that doesn’t mean K. is leaving the drama behind. She reveals that her new show features plenty of chaos and we’re likely to see some of her ex-co-stars along the way! It won’t just be craziness, we’ll see a lot of K. Michelle recording her album, being a mom to her son, and everything else she has going on in her life.
“You’ll just get to see me with my friends and my everyday life. And how I’m juggling everything and how you know, just because things are happening for me, there’s still a growth within me that I have to do in order to maintain it,” K. Michelle shares. And those friendships will be a key source of the drama.
On this week’s episode Tameka Raymond, ex-wife to Usher, got into an altercation with Traci Steele, ex Love & Hip Hop Atlanta star, at Tameka’s “Tea Market” event. An event, I remind you, that was thrown for a charity honoring Tameka’s deceased son. What is that etiquette rule that states Everything has a time and a place, again? Yeah, Tameka, Traci, and Torrei Hart need to read up on their Emily Post!
Rumor has it the fight prompted Tameka to quit the show, which necessitated producers to beg her back. Traci is speaking out to tell her side of the story, and of course she is crying editing foul! Girl please, you want back on reality TV, you were desperate for a big blown up mess that would remind producers you exist and are drama worthy.
“There was a buildup to that. It was much longer and a lot more arguing in between that and all of that was cut out, so it looked like she said one word to me and I snapped and went off. And that’s not the case at all,” Traci begins.
Mimi Faust is putting it all out there – like more all out there than her sex tape! The Love & Hip Hop Atlanta star has had a crazy, stressful year but she’s still looking forward and remaining positive.
In an in-depth interview Mimi discusses the brawling at the L&HH reunion, discovering Nikko’s secret wife, and her future going forward.
Shockingly Mimi reveals that she discovered Nikko’s secret from a gossip blog – one that’s notorious for getting things wrong, in fact! “I didn’t believe it at first…” Mimi admits, “but something said let me just ask him because I’m getting a lot of phone calls and stuff. I came to him just so matter of fact and he just came out and was like ‘yea, sure I’m married’ What?!?”
Gracious, help me! Last night was the season finale of Love & Hip Hop: Atlanta, and I don’t even know where to start…so I’ll just start at the beginning. Benzino and Althea are picking out invitations for their upcoming nuptials. Geez, ‘Zino is hoping for an invite that plays music, a la Hallmark’s finest. He reminds viewers that this won’t be the most polished event that VH1 will have ever hosted. The-The is plagued with coming up with the guest list, especially since the big day is a week away. Benzino is concerned that he may not have a best man since he keeps taking shots at Joseline Hernandez on Twitter and Instagram in retaliation for her threats to Althea. Stevie J. isn’t too happy with his friend calling out the Puerto Rican princess for being a ho. Since when is Instagram for fighting? My newsfeed hasn’t gotten the memo…it’s all first day of school and people dumping ice over their heads!
Tammy Rivera and Waka Flocka Flame are dining and dishing over their future family. Tammy admits to going to the fertility clinic with Waka’s mom Deb, but he isn’t too keen on the idea of participating in the doctor’s recommended exercises. When she teases about pursuing other options, Waka begrudgingly gives in and agrees to go see the doctor to make sure his boys can still swim. Across town. Mimi Faust goes to confront Nikko in the studio where he’s recording a song called–wait for it–Shower Rod. Wow. Nikko promises Mimi that he plans to get a divorce since his marriage bothers Mimi so much. She isn’t upset about the marriage anymore. Mimi is more concerned that Nikko may have leaked the tape and wanted to film her without her knowledge. This conversation isn’t going as Nikko planned. She cusses him every which way till Sunday before storming out of the studio. I love that Mona is promoting Shower Rod as the show heads to commercial break.
If I were a method blogger, I’d have been smokin’ indo and sippin’ on gin and juice to prepare for this recap. Sadly, I have to settle for a glass of Three Buck Chuck, and the only thing smoking is leftover casserole that I burned for dinner. #Snoopfail
Last night’s Love & Hip Hop Atlanta begins with Mimi Faust confronting Nikko about an article on Media Take Out that claims he’s married. She knows it can’t be true (it is, after all, Media Take Out), but she wants to be sure. Nikko doesn’t miss a beat when telling her that his marriage was a secret he planned to take to his grave. Um, what? He just wants to be honest. Mimi is too exhausted to cuss him every which way to Sunday. Nikko admits that he never planned to tell her, but he blames her for never asking him outright if he had a wife. Yeah, that’s totally Mimi’s oversight. As she storms out, he asks her to dinner. The man has some balllzzz.
Stevie J., Kirk Frost, and Tony are helping Benzino celebrate his last few moments as a single man. Going against the norm, the gentlemen decide to hit up a strip club for his bachelor party. As pole dancers make-out in Zino’s face for his amusement, he explains that he doesn’t need a pre-nup because he and The-The (I HATE that nickname) will be together forever. Benzino then announces that Stevie will be his best man. The following day, a very hungover Stevie is being yelled into consciousness by the Puerto Rican alarm clock. Joseline Hernandez can’t imagine why her husband would want to be in a wedding where he’s smashed the bride. When he tells her that he is heading to L.A. to record with Snoop Dogg, Joseline smells trouble.
