It's time for the weekly Monday and Tuesday night ratings round up!
Once againLove & Hip Hop Atlanta dominated Monday night! 4.192 million people tuned in, which means once again the show's ratings are rising. Next week features more reunion and with news that Stevie J and Joseline are indeed going through with this whole wedding thing, I'm thinking this smells… spinoff!
Real Housewives of Orange County had its season finale this week. Featuring mama drama and Slade problems amid a wonderland of faux-snow, the ladies went out with a bang pulling in 2.386 million viewers – a big jump from last week. Next week is the reunion and the previews look, well, they look dreadfully brutal.
Y'all, I know you were as excited as I was to see the insanity unfold on last night's Love & Hip Hop Reunion. Mona Scott-Young is moving up in the hosting world and now has her own reunion band. Touting the season as a Hip HOpera (why didn't I think of that??), she breaks down the drama from the past season before introducing the cast. It's like a technicolor explosion. Between K. Michelle's hair, Ariane's blue lipstick (yes, blue), Erica Dixon's eye make-up, and Mimi Faust's orange dress, I feel like I just woke up in Oz. Kirk Frost gets booed, which he laughs off, because, hey, even he knows what a d-bag he is! He is dressed like an extra on Miami Vice, by the way.
Mona is no idiot, so she immediately pits Joseline Hernandez against Mimi, and the requisite derogatory name-calling, cussing, and hopping off the sofa ensues. Stevie J. stands up proudly, basking in the two women fighting over him. Mimi assures him that he's sorely mistaken, right before dodging Joseline's stiletto. We're off to a running start, I'd say. We are treated to a highlight reel of all the frenemy feuds. Ariane is the only sane one of the group.
After bringing up the status of Mimi and K. Michelle's friendship, Mimi rolls her eyes and tells Mona to ask K. K. then compliments Mimi on her orange dress (it is pretty), and you could cut the tension with a knife. Apparently Ariane's bridge building lessons weren't well received. Speaking of failed peacemakers, Traci tries to share her intentions to get Erica and Shay speak about their issues. Erica wonders if this is season two, not a rerun of season one, while Shay reminds Erica that she still isn't married to Lil' Scrappy.
Has the season of Love & Hip Hop: Atlanta already flown past us in a flurry of unblinged Rolexes, popcorn hos, no-necks, cabin fever (and flings!), and Joseline Hernandez one-liners? Sadly, it appears so. Last night was the season finale, and wow. I don't know if Stevie J. totally appalls me, or if I should be impressed by his sheer ego induced stupidity.
The episode begins with Stevie asking Joseline to clarify her question. She spells it out that she is asking him to marry her. He's not willing to say yes, but he likes the ring so he'll wear it. Joseline is special to him…and she buys him expensive gifts. Stevie thinks that patience is a virtue, and Joseline is thrilled that he's kind enough to wear the token of her undying devotion. Someone get her some self-esteem STAT.
Rasheeda invites Traci Reece, Erica Dixon, and Karlie Redd over for cocktails and nursery painting. She reveals that she's having a boy…and that she's consulted an attorney about her situation with husband Kirk Frost. Erica is saddened. Whose dysfunctional relationship can she look up to now? Speaking of, Rasheeda asks about Lil' Scrappy and his problem with the wiz-nigh-ee.
If you're like me, you were glued to this week's Love & Hip Hop: Atlanta (like every week), so you witnessed Mimi Faust get a much desired breast augmentation at the hands of Dr. J Curves. The girl deserved it–her fun bags had been feed bags for the last three years!
Now, Mimi is proud of her new set, and she's ready to share it with her fans. She has tweeted multiple thanks to her surgeon, and now she's sharing pictures on her Instagram page of his masterpiece. Mimi has even scored a photo layout in HOC magazine to showcase her new figure. Want to see the new improved Mimi? Check out the pictures after the jump!

Love & Hip Hop Atlanta is dominating the ratings on Monday nights! The show's ratings climbed again (seriously, this is like the Mt. Everest of reality shows here) and was the most watched cable show that night!
3.6 million people tuned into the Kirk Frost and Rasheeda's impending divorce and Joseline preparing to propose! Next week is the season finale, so we can only imagine what the viewer numbers will be!
However next week Gretchen straps on a Marilyn Monroe costume and sings a proposal to Slade. The girls are doing it for themselves in the marriage department on Monday nights!
Also, still hanging tough on Monday night is Bravo's freshman reality show Below Deck. I have to admit I'm secretly loving the show. And it looks like I'm not the only person. 1.3 million viewers tuned into the fourth episode!
Take a peek below to see the viewer numbers since the premiere of the latest seasons of RHOC and L&HH ATL.

TELL US – WHAT DID YOU WATCH ON MONDAY NIGHT? ARE YOU CHECKING OUT BELOW DECK?
Last night's Love & Hip Hop Atlanta had everything you could ask for in a drama…romance, drugs, infidelity, the possibilty of prison, an unexpected proposal, and, of course, boobs. Lots and lots of boobs. VH1, you know what viewers want to see! #sarcasm #ican'tunseejoseline'sbathingsuit
Kirk Frost is livid over Rasheeda'smom's mini-van mayhem that ruined a palm tree and set his moped on fire (after running over it multiple times). He's willing to give his mother-in-law a pass, but had it been anyone else, he'd have come to blows. Oh yes, Kirk. You are so tough. Rasheeda reveals that she's already spoken to an attorney about filing for divorce, and Kirk actually seems surprised. He loves his wife and his family, and he's not all about those other women. He reminds her that she kicked him out, but she tells him she didn't tell him to go screw around…she was hoping he'd fight to stay in her life. Kirk is trying to skew Rasheeda's words to make his behavior at Benzino's cabin…and he's failing miserably.
Erica Dixon and Mimi Faust are commiserating about Lil' Scrappy and Stevie J. both use money for their daughters to keep the women indebted to them. Erica is sick of Momma Dee, and she's tired of Scrappy always taking his crazy mom's side. Mimi can relate…after all, the BMW Stevie bought for her definitely had strings attached. The women continue to share stories and discuss the wonders of a good boob job. It's perfectly normal conversation for the driving range!
It's time for another installment of everyone's favorite Peach State telenovela! Last night's Love & Hip Hop Atlanta did not disappoint. I found love with the kind hearted Poppa J. who makes Stevie's grossness and disgusting misogynistic actions even more of a mystery to me.
Rasheeda comes to Mimi Faust's apartment to vent about husband Kirk Frost's behavior at the lake with Benzino. She reveals that, yes, she did tell Kirk to do him, so she can't be totally shocked by his trysts. Um, no. She told Kirk to do him, she didn't tell Kirk to do video vixens in a hot tub. A teary Rasheeda remembers the Kirk she met as a teenager and cries that she didn't get married to get divorced…especially pregnant with his child.
Lil' Scrappy decides to do the right thing and redo his pee test. Unfortunately, he's been smizz-ni-oking the marijuizzlefashizzle, and he's hoping the judge will be lenient with him. Scrap's attorney has also given him the name of a good drug counselor who can help him get to the bottom of why he needs to get high. One look at Momma Dee raving about how Erica Dixon is a farm animal in the pastures of her palace and I have his answer…free of charge.
