You know who just doesn't give a flying flip what people think (and I love her so much for it!)? Mob Wives'Big Ang, that's who! The tanned and enhanced bartender gives the even-handed advice and tough love with her raspy smoker's voice on the VH1 hit, and she's always good for a hilarious one-liner.
When she's not keeping the peace, Ang enjoys tanning, smoking, cooking, tanning, fillers, plastic surgery, smoking, tatting, cooking, smoking, and playing with her pooch Louis…as in Vuitton. Now Ang can add another hobby to her list–piercing!
In an interview with Texas' News Journal, Mona and some members of both casts discuss the show, it's draw, and why some people just love to hate it. Mona recalls leaving her established job in the music industry to start her own production company. She shares, “I was leaving something that I had built for nearly 20 years of my life, but it was exhilarating to start over because I had a new lease on life, venturing into territories unknown for me and just starting from scratch.”
After Stevie spends the night with Joseline, she decides that she can't handle a relationship with him knowing that Mimi is never going away. Joseline wants to focus solely on her career, and she requests Stevie's undivided attention if he wants to stick around. He asks her to make him breakfast before she starts her day, but Joseline is no fool. She hits the road and leaves Stevie hungry.
Erica Dixon tells fiance Scrappy that her mother is having issues with their wedding. She wishes her mom would be more supportive, and Scrappy is tired of both of their mothers overstepping their boundaries. While Erica knows she'll never have Momma Dee on her side, she is confident that she can get her mom on the same page as Scrappy if she can arrange a sit down for the duo. Scrappy concedes…he'll let Erica's mom get to know him–and his multiple personalities.
Cue the veiled attempts to sweep the ugliness that is Basketball Wives under the rug! Forget all about wine-bottle hurling, table jumping, and rotten fish pranks, Shaunie O'Neal is morphing from being a puppet master for the violent antics of others into a legitimate do-gooder. More power to her!
Even better? She's teaming with everyone's favorite (props to you, Taylor Armstrong!) legitimate doctor, Dr. Charles Sophy, to make it happen. Look out, Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder! Shaunie has a cause, and it's focused (no pun intended) on you! I kid, I kid. Kudos to Shaunie for what she's doing to help the less fortunate who have children suffering from ADHD.
The original Love & Hip Hop needs to realize that no one ever cared about it once Love & Hip Hop Atlanta came into existence. It just ended last week, and I'd be hard pressed to name all of the cast members (although, in my defense there were oodles of them!), and I had to watch it every week!
Now, in an effort to remain relevant (never gonna happen), the casting rumors for next season are already starting to swirl. I find this hilarious given that the season hasn't even been renewed yet! First on the chopping block is Consequence and his Christmas tradition loving girlfriend and baby mama Jen Bayer. Surely Mona Scott-Young has to love the racially and religiously charged drama they bring to the show…
I realize that there is no way to use subtitles in jail, so I am quite concerned as to how officers are going to communicate with Atlanta rapper and reality personality Lil' Scrappy. Yep, that's right! Poor Scrappy is back in the clink.
VH1's most drama-filled series of wacky ridiculousness is back, and this season we've got some new players. Lord help us all! Last night was the much anticipated premiere of the second season of Love & Hip Hop Atlanta, and it did not disappoint. Stevie J is just as creepy as usual, Benzino's head is still far too big for his body, and the ladies are all still making pretty horrible life choices. Well, all the ladies except for Joseline Hernandez…she's too busy keeping it real—real crazy!
The episode starts with a full on shower scene starring Mimi Faust. As she primps for the day, she admits to cleaning house, and I assume she means both literally and figuratively. Of course, Mimi walks out of the bathroom and Stevie J and their daughter in bed together. Mimi explains that it's not what viewers think. She crashed at Stevie's the night before and Joseline (who lives there) stormed in and disrespected little Eva. As the former couple cuddles in bed, they discuss the previous night's events, Mimi tells Stevie that she doesn't want Joseline around her daughter. It's settled. Mimi will start staying at Stevie's house to serve as Joseline repellent. She's not ready to commit to him just yet…she'll just live with him in the meantime. Way to be strong, Mimi!
Erica Dixon and Lil' Scrappy are living together and planning their wedding, but Erica wants him to cut down on his swag. According to him, his swag is at the tenth level, while Erica believes his labels need to be on a budget. Scrappy spends $2000 a month on clothing, but he's willing to compromise on a wardrobe budget of $1200…sometimes. Am I wrong, or was he behind on child support last season? Is a Gucci label more important than providing for his child?
Last night's reunion host was none other than Dr. Drew, who admits to being a huge fan of the show. Sure he is, just like he DVRs Teen Mom 2… I wonder if the ladies scared off Joy Behar or if she just had a prior commitment. I'm actually shocked they didn't get John Salley to be a part of this VH1 debacle! Drew smugly talks about the drama from the season and explains that there is some Love (Majewski, that is) lost–because she won't be appearing on the reunion after getting booted from the show. We're treated to a highlight reel of Love's looniest confessions and outbursts. The woman sure loves to stab people!
