Season 3 of VH1’s Love & Hip Hop ATL Brings The Drama


VH1’s hit reality drama series, Love and Hip Hop Brings the most ratchetness of drama. But If you are the like the rest of us, you are compelled to watch this show regardless of this antics that take place.

First of, to anyone’s surprise we see that Joseline and Stevie J are married?!? Yet when Ariane and Erica question their wedding date she seems to be puzzled about it which leads to her frustration with Stevie at their birthday/wedding party. She then argues with Stevie about having them “check her” about their honesty of their relationship and for going to Magic City instead of following her after she runs out of their event.

Mimi meets up with her friends, and reveals to them that she has made a sex tape with her fiancé Nikko. The girls look concerned as she dishes the details to them. But once Nikko gives her news that his bags were “stolen” and his camera was in of the bags that were missing. He tells her that someone “leaked” the tapes and everything they did had been exposed. This leaves Mimi in “shock” as she tries to come to terms with the fact that her and Nikko’s private business is all over the internet. She claims that she didn’t know but we all the truth. The sex tape was just a prop to build more ratings for the show. If Mimi didn’t want the tape out there why is she on camera signing a contract for it to be aired. I understand that she wanted to feed her child but this whole ploy acting like she doesn’t know is just deplorable.

Once Stevie J finds out about the leaked photos he threatens to get full custody of their daughter Eva. Nikko rants about how Stevie J is broke and how him and Mimi are profiting off of the tape. Honestly, he seems like a joke trying to get opportunities off of Mimi’s success of the show. But if this is what they must do for a little fifteen minutes of fame so be it.

We see Scrappy is back but not with Erica or Buckeyee. He finds a new girl Bambi that he claims to be down with but yet can’t commit to her. From the previews she appears that she may be pregnant. So now he will be just like the rest of the many black men in America kids by two different women. Luckily, Erica has moved on and is happy. The only thing worse is messing with two women, Erica Pinky and Bambi is the fact that Mommy Dee stays in his business like he is a child. She tells Bambi that Scrappy has other eggs in his basket and he acts as if he has no idea what she is talking about. This creates insecurity within his girl and an uneasiness in their relationship.

Baby momma, baby daddy paternity test drama. Rasheeda and Kirk, what more can you say. They are back together but there are still underlying trust issues within their home. Kirk goes with Benzino’s advice of getting a damn DNA test on their son. He tells Rasheeda that he doesn’t believe their son is his. (How weird wasn’t HE the one who cheated on her?!) Okay yeah, thought so!

Newcomers to the show Tammy and Waka Flaka are a young couple with the same issues. Insecure girlfriend who dates rapper wonders if he’ll ever commit and stay honest long enough for them to get married.

The funniest bit to me is Karlie Redd and Yung Joc getting together. This guy hasn’t been in the spot light for a while so I wonder if the producers are really the ones creating all of this drama. She threatens him with an ultimatum that they need to move in together. She follows him to a strip club and is upset that he is there “conducting business.” The two talk about moving in but he doesn’t seem to be paying much attention to her.

What truly upsets me the most is how weak this show makes women appear. The whole “I need a man, and why won’t you love me” bit is so sad. This is sometimes a factor on why men don’t respect women because we jump hurdles for them when they won’t even lift a finger. I don’t understand the reason why these talented women chase these men and don’t have a life or career of their own to fall back on.

Ratchet TV At Its Finest: Sextapes and Mayhem

So, with the new season of VH1’s Love and Hip Hop Atlanta right around the corner we get a sneak peak at the season 4 trailer. If you are a regular LHHP fan like most of us are you are already aware of the ratchetness this show may bring. We get clips of Erica and Scrappy along with that “THOT” Buckeyee from that other VH1 show, “Flava of Love”. I guess they are still messing around, hmmm. Thought Scrappy settled that last season…guess NOT. And I must admit I am SOOOOOO glad to see Stevie J back in the mix. Next, we have Ms. Joseline Hernadez, I don’t even know what’s going on with her. I guess time will only tell with the Joseline and Stevie J antics will bring to the table.

We can’t forget Rasheeda and Kirk I hope they have reconciled their differences and he has finally stepped up to the plate now that their son is born. From the clips we see Rasheeda glowing and looking fabulous still back at her music. Speaking of music, what would Love and Hip Hop be without the wonderful and extremely talented, “Can’t Raise A Man,” songtress K.Michelle? But what’s going on with her love life???

Have I left anyone out!!!! Of course I have, this post wouldn’t be anything, without discussing Mimi and her fiancé Nikko. They have completely shocked the nation with the leak of their sextape. With over a million views in over 12 hours, this has been the biggest news for VH1 in years. Most say it is a marketing ploy by the creator herself to build momentum for the show’s release next month. But with this show being as big as it is, was this really needed? People flock happily to watch the latest scandals and cat fights between Joseline and Mimi or Erica and Buckeyee every week.

World Star Hip Hop is airing the “juicy” trailer on their website for adults only. Many people have mixed emotions about this. Some say it is HOT! And supposedly, can’t wait until they release the full movie next month. Others believe that Mimi is just ridiculous for airing her private moments for the world to see.

Well, either way you feel about it, you have to admit, that trailer is HOT and sexy! It makes you think of a couple words, HOT DAMN!! Mimi and Nikko were definitely not faking it at all. And you think, sister has some serious skills with the deep throat action. Let’s not forget that “shower pole” move that is now crazily trending on social media. Mr. Nikko was really giving her “the business.”

Yes, people shouldn’t sell themselves out for money. Money only last for so long but at the end of the day you still have to live with the decisions you have made. I just hope poor Eva doesn’t grow up to act like this with the notion that if mommy did it, it MUST be acceptable for me to do it. No honey, it’s not. But on the other hand, if this is how Mimi, feels she has to provide for her. Damn, Stevie you slacking then dawg, what’s really good! NO, I’m kidding.

But what DOES pose a problem, this is in some way sending a message that it is okay to be a HOE. IT IS NOT, I REPEAT IT IS NOT OKAY TO BE A HOE. Yes, having sex and fucking your significant other is NOT a problem in the privacy of YOUR own house. But, you do NOT have to broadcast it to the world to see. That’s suppose to be private. I’m not just saying that because of who it is. It was wrong when Kim K did it with Ray J, and all the other women who have put out sextapes just to get attention. These women are beautiful, smart and talented I wish they would show the world how wonderful it is to use your brain instead of your body. This is ONE of the reasons why men do not respect us now. They see us as cheap pieces of trash because this is how we portray ourselves to them. Of course, I know sex sells in TV land and brings in lots of ratings which means lots of money. But honestly at the end of the day, they are just making money for VH1. That’s sad. Showbiz only last for so long. The relevancy of this event will fade just like the wind and we will be asking ourselves what was the point of this and what else will they do to capture their 15 minutes of fame back yet again.
