End Of Engagement Parties And Men On The DL? The 9 Most Talked About Moments From Last Night’s “Love And Hip Hop Atlanta”
Yesterday’s episode of “Love and Hip Hop Atlanta” was brought to you by the letter “H.” H, for the word “h*,” which was said and used to refer to many different women on the show way too much last night. From Joseline talking about Che’ Mack, to Traci Steele talking about every woman Drew knows, it was rampant. And as usual, the foolery was rampant as well. Rasheeda told Kirk about the baby, Scrappy set Momma Dee straight and K. Michelle got a taste of her own medicine. Let’s talk about it all…
Kirk Thinks His New Baby With Rasheeda Is A “Setback”
Despite trying to set the mood right by lighting candles and placing pillows around their living room ever so romantically, there’s just no right way to tell a man in financial straits that you’re bringing a baby into the world. And sadly, Kirk didn’t smile or even hug Rasheeda when she broke the news. He just put his head down and blamed her for not taking her birth control pills (and tried to defend the pull-out method…fail). Despite talks of having one more child in the past, Kirk calls this unexpected blessing a “setback” and Rasheeda is left to figure out the situation on her own. For now…
Shay Pretends She’s Over Scrappy, But Shows Up Everywhere He’s At
After a sit-down with Traci Steele of all people, where the DJ tells Shay not to seek revenge on Scrappy or wait for him to get right, but to move the hell on, Shay seems confused about what “moving on” means. Eventually, she realizes that trying to make Scrappy feel the pain she felt when he dumped her to get back with Erica just won’t work. She decides that she’s done with homeboy. But of course, Momma Dee won’t let that happen because she has no “act right”…(see next page)
Momma Dee’s Crazy Behind Throws Scrappy An “End of Engagement” Party
Excited as hell by the news that Scrappy and Erica have temporarily gone their separate ways, Momma Dee buys a cake and cooks all of Scrappy’s favorite food to commemorate the usually sad situation. The cake even says “EOE,” which stands for “End of Engagement.” The soiree is also attended by the girl who allegedly moved on from Scrappy–Shay. She’s actually the first person to cut a slice of the cake, the only other person there, and she listens as Momma Dee tells her it’s time for Shay to take her place in the “kingdom.” But when Scrappy shows up, the party turns sour. He reminds Momma Dee that he and Erica aren’t done for good, but just need some time, and that her constant intrusion in his business is starting to work his nerves. Momma Dee pretends that she will “step the hell back” then, but we all know she has nothing else better to do.
Traci Steele and Drew Interview Video Vixens For The Shoe Boutique That’s Not Happening…Things Get Ugly As Usual
In the most tired storyline of the show, DJ Traci Steele and DJ Babey Drew come together to interview women for a chance to work in the shoe boutique they’re trying to put together. I don’t know why though. She hasn’t given over the money needed for it, and they can barely sit down together without arguing. Either way, a few women show up to be interviewed, and of course, they are dressed like they’re going to the club after 11. Boobs out, crop tops and tatts for the world to see–it’s clearly a staged scene by Mona and Co. Drew proceeds to ask extremely unprofessional questions (about their tattoos and lips), and even Traci has a rude moment when one says she used to be in a few music videos, and the DJ calls her a “video h*” for no reason. In the end, the one called a “video h*” calls Traci a hater and every candidate is asked to leave as Traci threatens to whoop a**. Once again, Traci and Drew get into a big argument where she accuses him of bringing in those particular girls to “disrespect her.” He denies it all, and as usual, asks her if she can still run him that $25,000. So done with these two…
Che Mack Gets Her TV Stolen, Stevie J Is Her Shoulder To Cry On…Of Course
So after acting a fool in the club on the last episode, Che Mack ended up having a bad week. Her house was broken into and her TV was stolen (and we’re assuming other more important things). Like a wannabe Santa Claus, Stevie J shows up to comfort her, with a new television (42 inches by the way), a hug, and the possibility of taking their working relationship to the next level (while also reminding her that he’s worked with big names like Jay-Z, Beyonce and more). Che opens about the struggle of trying to make it, and doing everything by herself, and in some deja-vu, Stevie lets her know that he’s got her back. Somebody won’t be too happy about this though.
Joseline Tells Stevie J To Stay Away From “Metal Mouth,” aka, Che Mack
And that somebody is Joseline. When she met up with Stevie later for hookah, she set him straight about rumors “little white girls” were telling her about Che Mack and Stevie working together. He denied it, of course, and in reality, it seems that Joseline is feeling as though Che is a threat (she’s literally in the place Joseline was with Stevie last season). She grilled him about taking their relationship more seriously and why he needs to get it together so she can trust him. He makes his usual rat faces and folks fall in place.
The Real Reason Why Scrappy Texts Other Women While With Erica Is…
Sitting down with his father to discuss everything from his meddling mom to his relationship with Erica, his dad asked him the million dollar question, which was why he felt the need to be in contact with other women while with Erica.
In the words of Martin Payne, he wanted to see “if I still got it.” Despite all that they’ve been through together, he admits that he put his relationship on the line because he felt that when Erica wasn’t acting in the way he wanted (not being lovey-dovey, getting on his back, etc), he had the right to hit up other women, just to see if they’d be down to clown if he asked them to. Men…
K. Michelle Makes Claims That Mimi’s Man And His Singing Friend Are Gay, Gay, Gay
Now this whole last scene? Messy. Mimi invited Arian and K. Michelle to see her have a cameo in her man Niko’s new music video. While getting her hair and makeup done, the ladies came in, and after realizing that a singer named Johnny was in the video too, K went on to spread the word that he was gay. She didn’t know for sure, but her gay male friends in the industry had claimed it was true. Mimi disagreed with K’s conclusion since she’s been around Johnny, while Ariane agreed, and eventually, the women moved on.
But somehow, Johnny got word of the rumor K was spreading at his shoot and confronted her. Which he had the right to do. Clearly caught, she got defensive, and before you knew it, Nikko was running over to yell at the tiny singer too (which he shouldn’t have done). Before long, it was a mess, and K was calling folks out as gay out loud in front of others, (including Niko).
Mimi Snaps On K And Ariane For Ruining Things For Her With Their Drama
When K finally decided to leave, Ariane decided to let both men know they were out of line for calling K out like that and basically ganging up on her. The men went back and forth with Ariane while Mimi was outside shooting her scene, but when she finished, she came back in to give everybody a piece of her mind. In true Mimi fashion, she pumped hard with a lot of hand movement, letting people know that she’s tired of K Michelle trying to ruin things that are about Mimi and not about K (must we remind you of the candle-throwing incident she had with Rasheeda at Mimi’s housewarming??). Arian and K left in disgust, and Mimi continued to scream at…nobody in particular.
However, the stage has been set for Mimi and K Michelle to go toe to toe in the next episode. Should be ratch!
