Turn up time! That’s what we’re pretty sure Stevie said before he stepped out the house in his Miami Vice suit and rained all over Niko and Mimi’s relationship parade. And that was only one of the many crazy things that happened on last night’s episode Of “Love & Hip-Hop Atlanta”. Check out everything that went down on the next few pages.
I know, we shouldn’t really be surprised by the antics that go on on “Love & Hip-Hop Atlanta” anymore, but every week someone does something to introduce a new level of triflin’ into the mix. Last night’s episode was no different. Check out the craziest things that went down.
Lyfe Jennings Says K. Michelle Should Be Careful Because She’s Creating A Terrible Future For Herself
Before you ask why he’s talking about K. Michelle, let us remind you of the fallout that happened between these two singers a while back. In October, K. Michelle refused to perform at a concert in Tampa, FL, because she was contracted to open for Lyfe Jennings and considered herself to be the bigger artist. As these things usually go, the two got into a rather heated Twitter beef, in which he verbally laid her out, and now we caught up with the Toledo, OH, native to see if things are all good in the hood now.
Lyfe wouldn’t exactly say that’s the case of his relationship with K. but he did impart some words of wisdom about her career and the public’s role in it. Check out the video and see what he had to say. Do you agree?
“I Thought My Career Was Over”: K. Michelle Talks Moving On After Domestic Abuse; Does Remix Of Beyoncé’s “Best Thing I Never Had”
Despite all the candles she might throw at folks on Love and Hip Hop Atlanta, we can’t deny that K. Michelle has come a long way, especially in terms of her career. The singer and reality personality spoke about her journey at a sold-out show at the Highline Ballroom in NYC yesterday. A big part of the testimonial she shared with fans was her struggle to get up and move forward after suffering violence at the hands of her ex (we won’t say any names…but you know the alleged deal), and how she felt her career was over before it had even really begun:
“I had people send me hate, send me Tweets and do things to me, like I was the one who did it to myself. I think a lot of women don’t tell their story, and men, just because you don’t know what people are going to say to you. And more and more, women are coming forward. And I think, if you go through that, you have to use it to help other people. You have to be strong. I thought my career was over. [cries] I thought it was over. I didn’t have anything. I still get angry and I think that’s the reason for a lot of the things that I do that I shouldn’t. But you can’t take the excuse. You just have to get better and say why, and move forward.”
After saying all that and adding that she has indeed moved forward, a fan yelled out “and get money!” The singer responded by saying, “So, I love my fans. You’re just as crazy as me.”
Afterwards, K belted out her own version of Beyoncé’s “Best Thing I Never Had,” which she calls “The Worst Man I Ever Had,” flipping the lyrics to fit her own experience in her abusive relationship. She definitely sounded good, and the lyrics were pretty moving:
Heard you got married, damn shame for her/Cause I’m glad you showed me who you really were/The picture you paint, you know you ain’t no saint/Keep it real about everything, I know just who you are/When I think of the times I had a fist to my eye, face all swolled and it hurt me to cry/Thank God I didn’t die, Thank you God for saving my life/I’m so over you, my momma prayed my way out…

Kirk Ain’t Really Gay, But Nikko Is! K.Michelle Discusses Why She’s So Hell-bent On Exposing Down Low Men
K.Michelle is infamous for calling men out about their sexuality. In the past year, she’s gotten into at least three verbal disputes with men after she either hinted or outright stated that they were secretly involved in gay relationships. During a recent interview with B.Scott, K revealed that although she often pokes at him has gone on record saying that he’s slept with “more men” than she has, she doesn’t really believe that he’s homosexual. She also discussed why she was adamant about exposing MiMi’s boyfriend Nikko and his friend Johnny as down low men. Check out some of what she had to say below.
On Kirk’s sexuality:
“No, I don’t think Kirk’s gay (laughs). I’ve said it before, I just said that he has four earrings. He’s very feminine and sensitive, but no I don’t think he’s gay. I think a lot of men act like b*****s these days, so it’s not just him.”
On Nikko and Johnny:
“Nikko popped up out of nowhere saying he’s rich and the guy that people think is gay (Johnny), they live together! And if you’re rich, you got a roommate in Atlanta and rent is only like $1,000. I don’t understand it! I feel like he’s lying about his sexuality and these are my feelings, you can’t take them away from me. I just wanted Mimi to know how I felt. We definitely spoke on and off camera about it.”
On her issues with down low men:
“I don’t have a problem with anybody being gay, but I have a major problem with someone being on the down low and misleading other people. I’ve been through my situation with a girl in the past and I was very honest and open about it. I don’t want people to think I was being insensitive to his sexuality, because that’s not the case. We’re in a society now where we’re open. If you know that you’re gay, then you need to be that and own it…that’s just my opinion. There’s nothing wrong with being gay.”
“At the end of the day, I wasn’t trying to ruin Mimi’s love life. I was just trying to be a friend and let her know about some things I had heard out of concern for a friend. I would never call anybody gay for no reason and I’m not a judgmental person.”
What did you think of her decision to discuss Nikko and Johnny’s sexuality during Monday’s episode?
Pass Or Play? K. Michelle Strolls With Delta Sigma Theta, Sheds Some Tears, And Covers Rihanna In Video For “Half Of It”
When she’s not claiming certain menfolks are out here living on the down low on Love and Hip Hop Atlanta, K Michelle is working hard at taking her music career to the next level. And in the new video for the song “Half of It,” you can see all that hard work come to life. The song is a cover of sorts of Rihanna’s “Half of Me” from the Unapologetic album, which was written by Emeli Sande. But K switches up the lyrics to fit the chaotic life that she lives in front of people on television.
“Saw me on the television, actin’ up and slappin’ bitches/And I ain’t proud of how I’ve been livin’/I pray the Lord my soul’s forgiven/I can’t handle my liquor why the hell I’m drinkin?/Little girls lookin’ up to me what are they thinkin?/Cause I want them to be better than me, better than the fool they see me act on TV…and that’s just the half of it”
She goes on in the song to talk about people getting the wrong impression of her and judging the decisions she makes on television when they really don’t know the whole story. The video also features K. Michelle on tour, interacting with her fans, dancing in the club, doing photoshoots, and strolling with Delta Sigma Theta, which K is of course a member of.
All in all, the video is short and sweet, and I can say that I dig this whole shabang more than the “I just wanna f**k” song and video she debuted last month. “Half of It” lets her voice shine through a lot better and you can relate to her message a bit more. Check out the video for yourself and let us know what you think!
And in case you’ve never checked out Rihanna’s original, “Half of Me,” you can also listen to that below. Enjoy!
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…
It would seem that Toya Wright just can’t get enough when it comes to the fame. She and husband, Mickey “Memphitz” Wright are shopping around a new reality show “Crazy In Love.” In the trailer we watch as Toya and Memphitz describe their love for each other, in addition to the crazy incidents or drama that’s been associated with their names as of late.
Of course it’s really just Memphitz who’s been associated with some madness. Like the K. Michelle accusations and him bringing a gun into the airport.
Despite the drama though, I have to admit that the two come across as very charming. Memphitz is obviously the energetic, funny one. And Toya is more laid back and reserved. It’s kind of cute.
Check out snippets from their interview and then watch the sneak peek on the next page.
Why Toya loves Memphitz
What I love about Mickey is his personality. He’s very bubbly. He loves his family, he loves his kids. He’s also a hard worker. He’s just fun to be around, very positive. And that’s spiritual side of me that was missing. We are like soul mates because we’re opposite. We are like soul mates.
Why Memphitz loves Toya
I love that she’s independent. She has her own story. She has her own business. She just has her own. It’s just crazy, she does not need me. So I have to watch how I deal with her because it’s not a normal girl that I’m dealing with…
About that gun in the airport…
This particular gun was in her car and the kids were getting in the car, keep the guns away from the kids of course. I take the gun out of the car and put it in my bag. Get in the car…we’re rushing to the airport. She’s in front of me. She goes through security perfectly. All of a sudden the line stops, so I look at her and she’s like, ‘It’s a gun.’ And I’m like ‘Who got a gun?’
Toya: I’m like you fool.
I’m not getting you out again.
Memphitz: Oh yeah you are. When you put this on *flashes ring* come get me.
Working on their marriage
Toya: I’m trying to still get used to being married because it’s always been about me and my kid. And now my husband always says I’m like Johnny Gill.
Memphitz *Breaks into “My My My.”* That’s all she says. That’s mine. Get that off of my blanket. What you doing in my bed? It’s not yours, it’s ours.”
“I gave her a shot at stardom and she would never listen. She’s crazy. I didn’t do it. She’s lying. I didn’t do it. That’s all.”
Well, there you have it. But there’s more.
Watch the two of them discuss finding a new assistant for Memphitz (because his baby momma wasn’t going to do anymore), and their attempts to have a new baby on the next page.
Surprise Pregnancies And The Insane Che Mack: 9 Ratch Things We Learned While Watching Love And Hip Hop Atlanta Last Night
Another week, another 60 minutes worth of foolery to discuss. Yesterday’s episode of Love and Hip Hop Atlanta was full of surprises. People we forgot about returned, somebody turned up pregnant, somebody else has a new man while another person’s relationship is on the rocks once again. If you missed the episode and want the rundown of what happened, we’ve got you covered!
27-year-old singer-turned-reality star K.Michelle has been very vocal about her departure from Love & Hip Hop Atlanta over the past few months, but during a recent interview with Power 105.1′s The Breakfast Club, she dropped the bomb that in addition to starring in her own spin-off show, she’ll be switching sides and joining the cast of Love & Hip Hop New York. The “I Just Wanna” singer also discussed rumors about her relationship with former Miami Dolphins player Chad Johnson. After previously denying being romantically involved with the ex athlete, K revealed that she’s being courted by him. Check out some excerpts from her interview below.
On leaving LHHATL and joining LHHNY:
“It’s just time to go. I got some other stuff popping off. They are actually bringing me to ‘Love & Hip Hop New York.’ I do have my own show [as well].”
“Coming to New York is basically setting up my own show. It’ll kind of be my own show within ‘Love & Hip Hop.’ You really won’t see me with – you know.”
On reality TV changing her life:
“I always say this, nobody, no matter how good I was singing or what was going on, nobody was listening to my music. And now all of a sudden, I put out this mixtape. It got over a million downloads. All my New York shows, all my shows are selling out because they introduced me on this show. ‘Love & Hip Hop Atlanta’ was a great stepping stone for me.”
On if J.R. Smith is really “desert thirsty” like Rihanna says he is:
“That ain’t have nothing to do with me. But that one, she said what she needed to say to that young man so… I don’t know [if he's desert thirsty]. When it comes to him, I said my peace. Good luck with it.”
On being with a woman:
“Yeah [I've been with a woman]. I’ve sang about it. It’s nothing… I have dipped out. I thought I was gay for three months. I realized what y’all men go through. The b***h actually jumped on my car. Like, I had a new car. She actually jumped on my car and scratched it up with her shoe and it was wrap.”
On Chad Johnson buying her a pet monkey:
“Yes, he did. You can’t bring the monkey to New York, so the monkey is in Florida and I’ve been trying to find it a home. Chad approached me and he tried to date me and I was like, ‘No, I don’t want no shoes. Everybody get shoes man. I want a monkey.’”
On Chad trying to woo her:
“I thought it was a sweet gesture. And no, we have not slept together. I been through a lot with this dating thing. I spoke to Chad yesterday. We are friends and I think that’s what it needs to be. I think I hopped into something that I shouldn’t have hopped into so quickly last time and I feel like now I have to pace it.”
“We are going to dinner and we are being friends. We’re talking on the phone. He’s courting.”
“He’s really nice. I’m getting to know him as a friend.”
