Unlike a lot of people, I don’t think Mimi Faust is stupid. A fool in love? Yes. But stupid, not necessarily. For some reason though, she thinks playing stupid makes her look better than what she likely is— a woman who got gamed by believing a man’s words rather than simply looking at his actions and drawing the appropriate conclusions. Oh, and then leaving his sorry, cheating butt.
I say that because of the latest interview the “Love & Hip-Hop” star did with T T Torrez of ipower 192. They asked the reality TV figure what her reaction is watching the show every Monday and she responded:
“My mouth is on the floor most of the time like ‘Are you serious?’”
No Mimi, are you serious? This isn’t the first time she’s tried to pull the “I had no idea” card when it came to the craziness that has been revealed on the show. She’s claimed that she had no idea Joseline would even be on the show before, let alone that she and Stevie had any type of extracurricular relationship. I’m calling BS. For one, there is no way that any man living as foul as Stevie J just started being about that life a few months ago. I don’t doubt for a minute that he’s turned up the ignorance level significantly since the cameras starting rolling because it’s so clear he thinks he’s the star of some low-budget love triangle flick right now, but in 15 years I guarantee that man has done plenty of other dirt. I wish I had the stats on his kid’s ages although the fact that he has five baby mamas and he and Mimi’s relationship has since been labeled “on and off” over the course of that decade-and-a-half tells me infidelity was likely at the root of at least one of those break-ups. Not to mention the fact that Stevie isn’t even in his prime anymore and Jos certainly isn’t a top-shelf pick. You can’t tell me back in his Bad Boy-producing heyday, that man wasn’t creepin’ all over the ATL and probably NY too. Mims, just keep it real.
Also, what kind of relationship do you have if you don’t come home at the end of the day and talk about who you shot scenes with. Granted, Stevie was probably going to his studio in the city at night while Mimi was at her hush home in the ‘burbs, but if he really didn’t mention to her that Joseline would be on the show, that speaks volumes about how much of a partnership they don’t have. She really didn’t need to see more than the first episode to know it was time to run away from that man—although as I started out in this entire article, she knew what was up long before Mona-Scott Young and VH1 ever came knocking on her door, camera and contract in hand.
I’m much more inclined to be sympathetic to the woman who can admit she overlooked some things, she settled, she saw what she wanted to see, she stayed for the money, she stayed for love, she ignored the signs—soemthin’—rather than a woman who has been in a semi-relationship for someone as long as Mimi and wants me to honestly believe things are being revealed to her at the same time they are the rest of the world. Girl stop. It’s a good thing her friend with the short cut who’s been begging her to see the light and leave Stevie alone for good is loyal because I’m sure she could tell some crazy stories about all the creeping Stevie has done over the years and all the sweeping under the rug her girl has done as well.
Mimi doesn’t owe her audience anything but what I can’t stand is when people tell lies that actually make themselves look worse than the truth would. Unfortunately, during her interview with T T, Mimi opted to just go mum rather than tell a good lie when the radio host asked her if she would ever get back with Stevie. Mimi went totally crickets, hello can you hear me silent on the line when T T asked that question which means she’s probably already back with him or setting up an appointment with U-Haul as we speak. That would have been one time that telling a lie rather than pleading the fifth would have made her look better.
What do you think about Mimi’s claims that she didn’t know anything about Stevie cheating before the show?
