10 Shocking Moments From The 3rd Episode Of LHHATL
Just yesterday, one of my coworkers said that she was over Love and Hip Hop Atlanta, that she’d outgrown their foolishness. I was happy for her growth but I’m so not ready to give up the outright train wreck that LHHATL is and that delicious ratchetness it’s brought to my life. Maybe I’ll get there one day but that night certainly wasn’t last night. And I’m glad about it. Check out some of the more ridiculous moments from the episode.
The Diss Song
I know some of ya’ll are about to come for me but I don’t care. Was I the only one who was surprised to see that the chick rapping was Karlie Redd?! She should stick to that type of flow instead of singing “Louis, Gucci, Prada” all off key. As much as Karlie can’t stand K. Michelle she actually might want to thank her for giving her the fire she needed to actually use this platform to showcase some of her talent. During this studio session, Rasheeda walks through the door with new girl Traci and Karlie proceeds to ask Rasheeda to jump on the track. Honestly, they’re all a bit old to be releasing diss tracks, but Rasheeda said she’d think about it. After that altercation with K. Michelle at Mimi’s, it might be sounding like a better idea. Who knows?
“I need to lick on your neck!”
“And I needed to talk to somebody about Steebie, and I know she like to gossip with her old A$$ so I’m like, you know what? Let me call her up.”
I’m sorry that line right there had me so weak. Karlie Redd likes to do a lot of things that aren’t quite age appropriate: like comparing her puss to diamonds. Time out for those childish games. Anyway, during their little heart to heart, Karlie reveals that Benzino told her that he slept with Joseline. Whaaaa?! Joseline denies it and in the confessional says, “Why would I smash somebody that ain’t got no neck ? I need a neck. I need to lick on your neck.” Now, I’m not going to perpetrate like everything Joseline says is Bible; but she does have a point there and historically, she’s not been known to lie.
Catch A Fire
Why would Mimi invite K. Michelle and Rasheeda to sit together in the same place at the same time?! And furthermore, why would Ariane, knowing the two women don’t like each other, encourage them to say hello. One minute they’re quietly ignoring each other, throwing side eyes in peace and the next they’re slanging words and then candles. I can’t recall the entire altercation, all I know is that Rasheeda was the first one to say that K. Michelle couldn’t stop thinking about her. And from there… Well you saw. Rasheeda jumped up, the producers had to hold her back, she pretended to calm down only to try to lunge at K. Michelle again. She calmed down once more and was about to walk out the door when K. Michelle said Kirk had three earrings, insinuating that he was gay. That did it. Rasheeda bust back through the door and got in K.’s face. And then that’s when K. Michelle threw the candle at her.
Sigh. First season, I really rooted for K. Michelle and completely disliked Rasheeda for calling her a liar, when she was not a part of their relationship. But K. Michelle is really out of control and needs to get her entire life. It’s time to grow up boo.
Anyway, throughout the whole altercation there were some great one-liners from both of the ladies. There was Rasheeda’s “Keyshia Coleslaw” and K. Michelle’s “Georgia prune” and her Rasheeda imitation: “I’m Ra-shee-da. I rap like Shaw-ty Lo.” K. Michelle is childish as all hell but that girl know she can turn a phrase.
The Prince Checks The Queen
Most of the time I’d argue that Lil Scrappy is shiesty and really doesn’t behave like a grown man should. But, in last night’s episode, he was making a whole lot of sense. After realizing that his mother has been running around with Shay, gassing her head up about their romantic future, he decided it was time to have a sit down with her. He told her that when he moves left, she needs to do the same. He let her know that bringing Shay to the studio was foul and told her that as her granddaughter’s mother, she needed to respect Erica, (i.e. stop calling her a Beyotch). He was respectful but he still let Momma Dee know that she’s been acting up. And I was so glad that, in his confessional, he admitted that Moms had taken this kingdom thing a little too far. Ya think?! Though Scrappy came to her like a man, all of that hard work went down the drain when he, Momma Dee, Erica’s mom and Erica sat down for dinner together.
Mimi and Stevie J
Sigh. So tired of the back and forth between Mimi and Stevie J. It’s really disgusting. I know they have some type of sick, twisted love for one another; but I wish they would leave each other alone, until they can sort all of that out. The thing is that will never happen because they have a daughter they need to co-parent. So once Mimi left Stevie’s house (Why she ever moved in in the first place is beyond me.), Stevie hasn’t been able to see Eva and he doesn’t know where she and Mimi are staying. Sure, it’s not right for Mimi to keep her from him; but at the same time she probably had to be away from him for a while so she wouldn’t kill that mug. By the end of the dinner Stevie told her she looked pretty, tried to get a kiss and Mimi still didn’t give up her new address. Is this progress?.. Probably not.
Who’s pimpin’ who?!
Now this scene right here was, by far, my favorite. Stevie J just couldn’t seem to keep his women in check this episode. First Mimi and then when he tries to collect money from one of Joseline’s shows, she reads and even threatens him for filth. And that’s what I dig about Joseline. She may have been ignorant and dependent when she first got into the industry but she’s not going to stay dumb and she’s not going to let Stevie manipulate her. In other words, she’s not Mimi. She lets Stevie know that while they may be bedroom buddies, he is not to mess with her money. Before he can even fix his mouth to ask her for his cut, she clowns him:
“Why you coming up in here looking like damn Malcolm X?”
Then, when he has the audacity to ask her for his money, when he won’t let her see her own contract, she lets him have it…all.
“What you need to do is go make Molly Da Maid clean yo house, find my motherf**king contract, bring it back to me and ask me for 30% because I don’t wanna slap the sh!t out ‘yo azz!”
This interaction gave me so much life. It was clear that Joseline had done her homework. She told Stevie, her lawyer told her she doesn’t have to give him anything until she sees the documents. Get him!
What’s Kirk gon’ do?
When Rasheeda goes home and tells Kirk about her altercation with K. Michelle, he first corrects her. He has four earrings and not three. Then he tells her that now that K. has started throwing things at his wife, it’s time for him to step in. What do you make of this? Is it right for Kirk to step in and defend his wife or should he let his wife handle it on her own?
Mimi and K Michelle
After K. Michelle acted a fool at her housewarming party, the two met for drinks so K. could apologize. Considering, this is the second time K. has popped off during a meeting Mimi organized, she was a little less than receptive initially. She did have to wise words for K. though, telling her that she really needs to deal with her anger issues. The realest talk. After she told her about herself, the two hugged it out.
“Get out of my palace! Guards, guards! Off with that b**ch head!”
Can someone please tell me what the hell happened to Erica?! I know Momma Dee has talked much trash over the years and maybe she felt like Scrappy was attacking her mother, but the dinner was going relatively well until she popped off. First she disrespected Momma Dee by telling her to be quiet. Now, I’ll be the first to admit that Momma Dee is crazy; but as Scrappy’s mom, and especially when he’s sitting right there, why did she think that was ok?! Then it seemed like she tried to lunge at Scrappy, which made Momma Dee come for her. Was it just me or did Erica look like she was going to fight her too? At that point Scrappy had had enough and told Erica to give the ring back. Dang. Welp, I’m with Erica’s mom, I’ll be surprised if they get married too. The minute Scrappy seems to have his stuff in order, that’s the minute Erica acts a fool. And did anyone else catch how she promptly threw his financial situation in his face?! Yet in our interview with she and Mimi, she said she didn’t know about any of Scrappy’s money issues. Oook girl. Anyway the whole sit down was a hot mess.
What did you think of last night’s episode? Will Scrappy and Erica work it out? Is Stevie going to produce that contract? Will K. Michelle ever learn to act right? So many questions.
