That last part of that headline is a statement you don’t hear everyday. Since “Love and Hip-Hop Atlanta’s” Monday night premiere, Joselin, Mimi, and Stevie J’s relationship triangle has been the hot topic of discussion. Yesterday, Joselin revealed more than we needed to know about her, but now Mimi is clearing the air a bit on just how unfaithful Stevie J has been throughout their relationship and how long she’s really known about his cheating ways.
In an interview with The Jasmine Brand, Mimi was asked all the things we’ve been wondering. Here are the highlights:
On how long she and Stevie have been together
“We have known each other for 15 years, we have had a born again, off again relationship and I really wanted to clear that up… When Stevie was in other relationships, we absolutely were not together.”
Were they were together while he dated Eve
“Absolutely not. When he was dealing with Alex [Martin, Whoopi Goldberg's daughter] we were not together. When he was in any other relationship, we were not together.”
When she found out about Joseline and Stevie’s rumored second girlfriend
“When I’m at home with my daughter, I don’t know what Stevie’s doing when he leaves the house. Stevie will say I’m going to the studio. I’m not going to the studio to check on Stevie, I’m at home with my daughter. So I had no idea who Joseline was, I had no idea she was his artist, I had no idea they were even working together… What everybody else was seeing, I wasn’t privy to. All I knew is he was going to work, and I’m at home with my daughter.
“The first time I knew she existed was about two weeks before we started the show. It was all brand new to me, this was the first time I found out about her, her name, and all of that… I was living through it as we were taping.”
Whether she’s concerned about the example she’s setting for her daughter
“I’m absolutely concerned about it, I’ve said it over and over again. You guys can see it in episodes coming up that’s definitely a concern of mine. The message that I will be sending to her, especially because she’s a little girl and she will grow up to be a woman, and I don’t want to send the wrong message to her or I don’t want her to think that what he’s doing is right and that’s the way a man should treat a woman. I’m absolutely concerned about this whole thing.”
How she feels about criticism against the show’s producer, Mona Scott-Young
“Actually, Mona is a genius. Because this was not scripted and she picked people; and during the course, she never knew that any of this would have transpired. Ever. None of the producers did. They were like, ‘we couldn’t have made this stuff up if someone paid a million dollars,’ so all Mona did was have the cameras shoot, and what transpired, transpired. It just happened to be a ridiculous, way-out-there situation, and that’s just what it was. This is a real life situation, so I can’t fault Mona or VH1 or whoever. It wasn’t their fault that what was going on with us was so off the wall. That’s really what it was. They were just capturing the moment.”
The Jasmine Brand also asked Mimi whether Joseline is really a man and she replied that she’s absolutely a woman and was pregnant at some point, which there’s a bit of foreshadowing of at the end of the preview for next week’s episode below. Unfortunately, Mimi wasn’t asked whether she was leaving Stevie but if she hasn’t in 15 years, we probably already know that answer.
