We’re halfway through the week, y’all! To kick off this Wednesday morning, while we anxiously await Mary’s Below Deck Med recap, let’s see what our reality stars were up to. Above: it was an interesting guest list at the premiere of Marriage Boot Camp Reality Stars last night in West Hollywood! Brandi Glanville, Kim Richards, Scheana Marie and more turned out to celebrate – together. It’s not surprising to see Kim Richards and Brandi together, since Brandi recently shared that they still talk every day. And I know Scheana and Brandi have made amends, but it’s still a little weird to see them photographed together. Hopefully they kept the topic of podcasts off limits.
It was a busy night in West Hollywood, apparently. Variety held their annual “Power of Young Hollywood” party. Dancing with the Stars pro dancer and sometimes judge, Julianne Hough, was there, as well as Dance Moms alums Mackenzie and Maddie Ziegler.
Check out these and more reality star sightings in the gallery below!
There is always some sort of drama in Atlanta (or Milwaukee, in this case), isn’t there? If it isn’t the stars of RHOA stirring it up, it’s the stars of Love and Hip Hop Atlanta. This past weekend, Momma Dee landed herself in some hot water when she decided that she was going to enjoy a lavish meal with friends and then skip out on the bill. The Love and Hip Hop star was then arrested, and spent a few hours in the slammer before posting bail.
However, Momma Dee is now speaking out about her arrest this weekend, and according to her, it was nothing more than a big misunderstanding. Um, how you can misunderstand that you ran up a huge restaurant bill and it needs to be paid? Things that make you go hmm….

I guess times aren’t so grand for the kingdom. Momma Dee, the outspoken royal matriarch of Love & Hip Hop Atlanta found herself staying in quarters that weren’t quite fit for a queen after a run-in with the law.
The reality star is the mother of rapper Lil’ Scrappy, and she’s often turning away his love interests at the door to her palace. Only the best for her prince! However, it seems she may have overextended her regal budget after a recent night out in Wisconsin. You’ll recall that Dee wasn’t keen on getting a promissory ring from her ex, now current, husband Ernest at a restaurant known for its chicken wings. Unfortunately, if it’s a higher end establishment, Dee doesn’t want to pay for the service or the amenities.
The reunion begins with Joseline responding to her statement on an After Party episode that Mimi was her b*tch as well as Stevie’s. She reveals that the pair had a threesome together. Mimi doesn’t deny it, instead she just claims to be sickened by Joseline. Stevie reiterates his same old tired excuse that he had many foggy nights back in the day. It gets pretty intense as Joseline describes the encounter shared, adding that a lot of begging took place. Mimi clarifies that it wasn’t a threesome by definition. Instead, she and Joseline took turns with Stevie, but they were all present. Momma Dee interrupts to remind everyone that as long as you’re having fun that’s all that matters. Ariane never knew about this dalliance, but she’s proud of her friend for being so adventurous. Wasn’t a sex tape adventurous enough? Everyone claims it was a one time thing, and Joseline apologizes for her treatment of Mimi which Mimi seems to accept it. They agree that Stevie has been the root of their issues. Stevie thinks it’s going to be a great night for him–perhaps a replay that he’ll remember this time?
Nina Parker, formerly of TMZ and the Insider, is at the helm of this season’s Love & Hip Hop Atlanta Reunion. She can’t do any worse than hosts of the past, can she? In my opinion, she did a good job wrangling Stevie J., Joseline Hernandez, Mimi Faust, Rasheeda and Kirk Frost and crew, but we’ve got another hour next week to draw final conclusions! Off that bat, she begins last night’s first installment by introducing the major players. Thankfully the extras are “holding it down on the couches,” although there are several minor characters missing at this point.
In the finale episode, Stevie takes off to Los Angeles without his bride, but he and Joseline explain that they are “working through things” and happy. Stevie feels proud and healthy due to his sobriety and Joseline doesn’t see the need to accommodate him by curbing her intake…as she states, she’s not going to court. Joseline then turns on her co-stars, saying that if they are nice, she’ll be nice, if they act a fool, well…Nina highlights Joseline’s journey after her last reunion antics from reconciling with Stevie to NOT apologizing to Mimi. Joseline tells Nina that she was in the wrong for wiling out the last time they were in this situation, but everyone was ganging up on her. As for apologizing to Mimi, Joseline doesn’t think her husband’s ex needs to hold her breath. Stevie feels badly for pushing Joseline’s buttons when it came to her working without him, and Karlie Redd expresses her surprise at the bouquet that met the side of her face. Joseline instructs her to speak more loudly like when she bleeps bleep. Geez. Ariane challenges Karlie’s loyalty, and the two have a war of words. Oddly enough, the Karlie and Joseline agree that they could be friends going forward.
All good things must come to an end, and such is the case with this season of Love & Hip Hop Atlanta. Last night was the finale episode and like a timeless classic, Joseline Hernandez unleashed her inner wackadoo (we’ve been waiting), and Stevie J. revisited the age-old love triangle that has made this franchise great. Is he revisiting a reconciliation with Mimi Faust? Lil’ Scrappy made an appearance at the Royal Wedding, and, oh yeah, Rasheeda and Kirk Frost were there too.
The episode begins with Jessica Dime insulting Mimi Faust at the showcase Mimi planned with an impromptu performance by Margeaux. After the song, a passive aggressive Mimi compliments Jessica’s song and dismisses Stevie. When Stevie takes offense to Jessica’s diss, Mimi starts to go off on her performer. Security circles in the event that Stevie loses his temper yet again, but luckily he just spews stripper insults. After meeting with a counselor, Kalenna is back in the studio, writing music to help her get through her post-partum depression. Her husband Tony Vick is proud to see his wife working through her struggles, and he hopes she’ll allow him to manage her career again. She’s more excited than when he actually proposed.
Last night was another phenomenal installment of Love & Hip Hop Atlanta. Between Lil’ Scrappy threatening to overthrow Momma Dee’s monarchy just days before her wedding to Ernest to Stevie J. and the boys taking a fishing trip, it was one for the books. It begins with Kirk Frost surprising Rasheeda with a store front. He knows he’s been in the doghouse a lot lately, and he hopes it will put him back in her good graces. Rasheeda is over the moon excited by Kirk’s gesture, and she’s even more thrilled to learn she’s at one of the ritziest malls in the city. I’m guessing Lenox Square, and to that I say, good job Kirk!
As his mother’s wedding draws closer, Scrappy is summoned by his sister Jasmine who is still not on board with the nuptials. She breaks the news that Dee is getting married sooner rather than later, and she’s got Erica Dixon and Bambi as bridesmaids. Scrappy can’t believe his mom isn’t having a long engagement, and why is she putting his ex and his current boo in her wedding? They hate each other…not to mention, he and Erica aren’t on the best terms at the moment.
