Please accept my sincerest apology. I dropped the ball in a major way! How did I not know that my favorite new scripted show Love & Hip Hop: Atlanta was on twice this week? Since the recap is already a day late, let's just dive right in to the insanity, shall we?
Joseline Hernandez goes to Stevie J.'s man cave to continue to nag him about Mimi Faust's friends being all up in their business. Does she just wander around in lingerie all the time? Seriously, the sets, the lighting, the costumes, the horrible acting–this is NOT reality television! Stevie ignores his bride while surfing the Internet, and lo and behold! He's just happens across the blog story that shares Mimi's "leaked" sex tape with Nikko. Talk about coincidence!
Next, I was literally about to give up on all things Mona Scott Young when I saw just how bad Karlie Redd's acting is until I learned that she is supposed to be acting because she's in a "movie" now called 30 Days in Atlanta. Someone call Sundance! Karlie is so thrilled to be in a relationship with Yung Joc. Not only is he younger and more successful than Benzino, he has a neck! Yung also doesn't like drama. She tap dances between making out with him and accusing him of cheating since he's wearing the same clothes she saw him in yesterday. Karlie thinks the best way to keep tabs on him is to for them to move in together. That is a GREAT idea!
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.
Is Vivid getting a two-for-one deal on sex tapes with the ladies from the Love & Hip Hop franchise? First, Atlanta'sMimi Faust has released a video which is breaking Kim Kardashian'sporn records, and now Erica Mena is throwing her hat (thong?) into the ring with some sexy times of her own!
And when I say "her own" I mean her own, as there is apparently only one star of Erica's tape. While she's been on-and-off with manager Rich Dollaz while in a lesbian relationship which was featured on last season, it's seems that Erica's favorite person in the bedroom is, well, Erica.
So, if your sex tape is breaking records, do you consider that to be a compliment? I have to put that question out to you readers since Kim Kardashian isn't returning my calls. Apparently, Mimi Faust'svideo sexcapades are making her more famous than the VH1 reality show on which she stars!
I guess if you're going to make a sex tape, and said sex tape is going to be available for public viewing, you'd better be prepared for people to poke fun at video of you doing the dirty, right? Perhaps we should ask Kim KardashianMimi Faust! The Love & Hip Hop: Atlanta star isn't ashamed of the tape that she intentionally leaked to thwart the guy who stole it from turning a profit. Is that a prerequisite for a leaked sex tape? It has to be stolen and then offered up to Vivid by the "thief" before the participants will begrudgingly agree to release it themselves. It seems like it happens a lot…
Mimi may be proud of her video, but that isn't stopping Real Housewives of Atlanta'sKandi Burruss from poking fun at her. In a series of Instagram videos, Kandi posted a spoof of Mimi's romp. Describing the first clip, she writes, "I was trying to figure out how @Mimifaust was able to pull up on that shower rod….I think I weigh too much for this!" She follows that up with the caption: "#part2 I need a #MiMiShowerRod…Where do they sell those? #ThisIsWhatHappensWhenToddGoesOutOfTown #ImPerfectingMyTricksForWhenToddGetsBack Lol!"
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.
