Ever wondered why people are so drawn to VH1's Love & Hip Hop Atlanta while turning the channel on the original Love & Hip Hop? Carlos King has the answer for you! You may now be asking yourself, who is Carlos King?
Well, he's a television wiz who has worked at major networks like BET and OWN, as well as on The View. He's even been behind the scenes of some of your favorite Housewives franchises. Now, Carlos channeling his talent on VH1 working as the co-executive producer on L&HHA.
Nothing gets old when it comes to the folks of Love & Hip Hop Atlanta! Last week, Lil' Scrappy was chasing down his fiance's car, and this week, he's trying to make peace. K. Michelle throws major shade at Kirk Frost, but she also has bigger fish to fry because her love instruments aren't totally in tune. These folks never disappoint, y'all…that's for sure!
Even though he and his mom were chasing down Erica Dixon's car to get to her coveted engagement ring, Lil' Scrappy can't be mad at her for long. He heads to a jewelry store to find an appeasement gift, and Momma Dee joins him to spout off about Erica's disrespect to her. When she calls her son's fiance a disrespectful bish (repeatedly), Scrappy reminds his mother that Dee doesn't know best. Scrappy eyes a watch as his mother leaves…perhaps he wasn't looking for a gift for Erica, but rather a surprise for himself.
Joseline Hernandez continues to complain to her booking agent Dawn about her relationship with Stevie J. Based on his recent interactions with her, Joseline can't figure out which one of the two is more crazy…Stevie for dressing like a poor man's Steve Urkel, or her for inviting him back into her bed. Should we just consider it to be a tie?
Oh Laura Govan, please try to do everything you can to stay slightly relevant in light of the rumored cancelation of Basketball Wives: LA. The former reality star is posing for a photo shoot where she sets a wedding dress on fire in a symbolic protest regarding society's views on single women being less important than married women. Ohhhh, deep!
Of course, Laura is engaged to NBA player Gilbert Arenas who is the father of her four children, so she's kind of straddling the fence between single and married while trying to raise awareness about how flammable satin is women's roles.
OhLove & Hip Hop Atlanta, you know how to make even a family meal a drama fueled brawl! Last night was an endless hour of craziness and candle tossing. Let's get to it, shall we?
Karlie Redd makes her first appearance of the season, and Rasheeda Frost and Tracey Steel come join her in the studio. The three women are anti-K. Michelle for talking smack about them in songs and on social media. Karlie hopes to enlist her friend to join her in a diss song, but Rasheeda doesn't to waste her voice on the rivalry. She'll definitely think consider it though.
Erica Dixon is getting dinner ready for Lil' Scrappy, and he's telling her about Momma Dee's ambush with Shay. Erica is not happy with this turn of events. She thinks it's incredibly disrespectful for Shay to keep sharing her feelings for Scrappy knowing full well he's engaged. Scrappy and Erica think that Momma Dee needs a sit down. He seems to be a much more devoted partner to Erica this season, although VH1 really needs to consider bringing back his subtitles.
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.
