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!
Last night, K. Michelle showed her natural behind on the fourth episode of LHHATL, while Kirk and Scrappy just decided to watch nekkid booties at the strip club all while swapping marriage advice. And let’s not forget the love triangles between Stevie J., Joseline, and Benzino, and Traci Steele, DJ Baby Drew, and a strange woman at his home. Bottom line: there was a lot going on and we’re still early into the season. Check out what went down.
It seems that K.Michelle has made a habit out of beefing with the boyfriends and husbands of her Love & Hip Hop: Atlanta co-stars. Just a few weeks ago she got into a physical altercation with Mimi Faust following her claims that Faust’s new boyfriend was down low. Now, it appears that she is making similar allegations about Rasheeda’s husband Kirk. Now in K.Michelle’s defense, it looks like Kirk started the fight, but K.Michelle most certainly finished it.
“I think she really liked Rasheeda like REALLLYY liked her, like wanted the BOX…NOT!”
K.Michelle caught wind of the shade pretty swiftly because in no time she was going back at him.
@FROST117 nobody want ur wife’s ole wrinkled pu**y. I guess u lookin 4a storyline huh? I have a great storyline for u. Hmmmm,” she tweeted just getting warmed up.
@FROST117 how bout u touching ur own daughter. And one is that random child running around yall house that u don’t let VH1 talk about” she went on, referring to rumors that Kirk allegedly raped his daughter.
@FROST117 I want no parts of u and Rasheeda’s “girl on girl” relationship. You are a grown man walking around with 4earrings in ur ear.”
“Don’t try me Rainbow bright.
@FROST117 You wanted sum attention this 2day u got. Now call Vh1 so u can use this twitter fight as a storyline”
“I’m sick of y’all
@FROST117 also talk about how u were married when u started f***ing Rasheeda. Deal with ur own skeltons little Richard.”
“Hey And here’s a little advice
@FROST117 You can’t be a manager around here managing DUST. Kiss my BIG a**. God Bless.”
@FROST117 first u say I’m gay now u say I’m a hoe. We both know u fu**ed more Men than me!”
“Im going to the beach Kirk
@FROST117 to write, let me know if u wanna borrow my extra bikini and come discuss this. Smooches.”
“Men don’t argue over twitter with a woman.”
Below is the image that started it all.
What do you make of this craziness?
K. Michelle has stepped on a number of toes since she joined the cast of Love and Hip Hop Atlanta. Whether she was beefing with her co-stars or other reality stars, she’s never afraid to speak her mind. She brought that same candidness to our exclusive interview with her. See what she had to say about everybody from Rasheeda’s husband Kirk to Tamar Braxton.

In the same way that VH1′s hit show “Basketball Wives” doesn’t actually have any wives on the show, the running joke with the network’s other front runner, “Love & Hip-Hop” is that there really isn’t a whole lot of love. But something the show is also missing, at least in Atlanta, is the other portion of that title because after 10 episodes and half of a reunion, I’m still sitting here thinking, where the music at? (poor grammar on purpose)
I realize most people who participated in this craziness did so for a check. But I thought the overall grand master plan was to keep getting checks because the show was putting their names out there and now they actually had a platform for the hip-hop, i.e. the music. Every time K. Michelle comes at Toya, or Rasheeda talks about her independent artist grind, or Scrappy gets ready to put those paws on somebody, everybody reacts like hahahhahaha lololololol ahhhh that was a good one, but where’s the music? Now, I’m thinking the same thing, where’s the music? Like, for real for real.
Backing up a step, there are a couple people whose careers I’m thankful have not gone anywhere because, frankly, they suck, point blank period. Joseline and Karlie Redd were the first artists, term used loosely, to drop singles during this season of LHHATL, but honestly, these are the only two women who I would give a pass to for not doing anything career-wise because at the end of the day, they are not what’s up. I think non-spanish speaking people can understand Joseline’s reggaeton rapping better than her confessionals on TV. And when a Trinidadian who’s over the hump, be it the 30-year, 40-year, or 50-year hump, spits patois in front of Stevie J to prove her lyrical prowess but comes out with a single titled “Louie, Gucci, Prada” to get on, you almost want to say Karlie would have been better off remixing “things that make you go hmmm.”
I know right now somebody is thinking, what about Rasheeda? (Give me a minute) I happen to like Rasheeda (blame it on my fondness for dirty south rap music). I think she has a lane, dirty south boss b***h rap music, and I feel like she does it well. The thing is, she appears to have been in the exact same spot in that lane since her “Bend ova”/ “Bubblegum” days — songs I can remember bumping at college parties back somewhere between 2003-2007. After listening to her interview with Kirk on The Breakfast Club yesterday, I do think the couple knows what they’re doing as far as having a comfortable lifestyle, but despite being on this show and dropping the “Marry Me” single and video within that time frame, it doesn’t appear Rasheeda has picked up any more buzz than she already had in the south. That, my friends, is a problem. there’s no point in doing all that so-called grinding just to be in the same spot. I’m not trying to say Kirk sucks but I bet Wacka Flocka’s mama would’ve known how to make it happen. (shade)
The only couple with a relatively stable relationship on “Love & Hip-Hop Atlanta” stopped by The Breakfast Club this morning to clear up some rumors that have followed the pair since appearing on the show. Thirty-one-year old ATL rapper Rasheeda (yes, she revealed her real age!) and her husband of 12 years, Kirk, dished on all the drama in their own marriage, problems with K. Michelle, and just how well they’re eating on Power 105.1 and I have to say I think it makes both of them seem more likable. Check out some of the highlights:
Whether Rasheeda and K. Michelle came to blows on the reunion
What ya’ll saw between me and her on the reunion is what happened. I laughed at the story…
Why Rasheeda flipped on K. Michelle at the reunion
When I said what I said to her I said it to her faced based off of me forming my own opinion. I’m woman enough to say it to your face but you want to go on blogs and interviews and say kindergarten stuff. You’re bully and you need to shut up and that’s my point. I said to you what I said to you, in your face, straight up and down. Stop going behind my back and talking s**t all the time. It didn’t matter if I had 700 luggage bags, I’m a bad b***h.
Does Rasheeda really not believe K. Michelle
It was just a lot of things that didn’t add up. One minute it was please tell Toya I have a lot of love for her and I respect her, then the next minute it’s I wanna whoop this b***’s a**. Wait a minute, if a person’s character is off and on, what makes you think a person wouldn’t…i’m not saying she lied about the whole story. I wasn’t there and I don’t know.
Would Rasheeda be with Kirk if he wasn’t her manager
I am a person who is a firm believer that people who come up with you, should be with you. He’s done so much for my career. I am an underground, independent artist and I live off of my music.
Moving on to Kirk, the hosts had a lot of questions about his soft image on the show. Here’s a bit of what Rasheeda’s husband had to say about it:
Does Rasheeda run him
“They look at me like I’m laid back but I’ve got a history. I don’t like arguing all the time so I just be like you can have it….
It bothers me sometimes because when people see it…if i was to bust out and go off on Rasheeda then people would be talking about me like I’m abusing her, but then when I’m nice I’m too nice.
Would they ever sign a major deal
I rather take the guaranteed slow money. Rasheeda lives well. When you look at me on the show, the reason she hurt my feelings was because I was like you got things that rappers way bigger than you don’t got and you’ve been stable your whole career. You’ve never had to want so for you to even question what I’m doing it pisses me off.
Whether he’s gay
I don’t have nothing against anybody but the one thing about me is people know me. I don’t even play that game. If I did it, I wouldnt have a problem saying it because it’s so widely open so why would you hide it? I don’t like the closet thing.
Check out the full interview below. What do you think about what they had to say?

When it comes to “Love & Hip-Hop” in any city, the usual question we’re asking is why are you still with that man? This time around in Atlanta, the situations of a couple of different couples are bringing into question women’s loyalty and just how much should you — or could you – stand by your man?
Memphitz and Toya aren’t actually members of the LHHATL cast but they’re talked about so much they might as well be. Recently, Toya made her first semi-official statement on K. Michelle’s allegations of abuse against her husband. As expected, some people thought Toya was doing exactly what she should do, defend her man’s name or at least their marriage, which is essentially what she did by shutting down any speculation that he might be abusing her as well. On the other hand, some people sided with K. Michelle’s classic “if you’re going to ride-or-die, know what you’re riding for” statement, and questioned why Toya was speaking on things which she didn’t know of fist-hand.
Truth be told, no matter what Toya says, does, or doesn’t say or do, she’s caught between a rock and a very hard place. When you let someone else speak for you and yours as K. Michelle has been doing all season, you run the risk of letting assumptions cloud your marriage and your reputation because no one ever hears your side. On the flip side, when women are a little too overzealous in their man’s defense, people wonder if you’re riding just a little too hard and being blind to the type of man your husband really is, was, or could be. There’s also the question of why she’s speaking for her husband instead of Memphitz making his own statement on the allegations. We knew he needed more people when his first response to K. Michelle outing him was “I made you,” but I’m not so sure having his wife do his PR was the best move.
On the other end of the LHHATL spectrum are Kirk and Rasheeda. In this case, Kirk is the ride-or-die partner so to speak. He’s been trying to make the boss b****’s career happen for somewhere around 14 years I believe, but from all views, particularly his wife’s and her possible new management, it ain’t happenin’ and he’s the reason. I think it’s perfectly fine for Rasheeda to seek new management if she thinks her husband can’t take her career where she wants it to go (although a little FYI before she actually met with someone would have helped); however it’s the emasculation along the way that’s a bit of a problem in my eyes. When it comes to the couple’s interactions, Rasheeda is quick to want to separate business from personal, but as a husband, Kirk can’t help but feel personally attacked about any perceived short comings when it comes to his business sense. It’s just not that easy to take off the business cap and switch on the one of the spouse, particularly when you’re the one on the receiving end of non-stop criticism for failing to live up to your wife’s expectations as an artist.
But that’s not even the worst of Rasheeda’s offenses. She doesn’t just emasculate Kirk herself, she let her possible new manager Debra Atney disrespect and berate him as well, as we saw on this week’s episode. I understand wanting to take your career to new heights but you don’t have to knock your husband down a peg to get there. It’s fine not to stand by her man as her manager but she needed to stand up for him as a man and not allow another woman to talk down to him. Don’t ask me where his cojones were that day either, but perhaps they’d already been cut off by Rasheeda on the way to the meeting.
We’re all on the outside looking in on these relationships but there’s been some pretty sketchy behavior going on lately that calls into question women’s loyalty and just how much they have or should have their man’s backs. There’s a time and a place for riding and dying and I’m not sure both of hese ladies have figured those situations out yet. What do you think?
How would you handle the K. Michelle situation if you were Toya? Do you think Rasheeda defends and appreciates Kirk enough?

There are only four episodes left in the first season of “Love & Hip-Hop Atlanta” and with the wild success that came from transporting the show from NY to ATL, the producers, i.e. Mona Scott Young, are no doubt already thinking about how to make the next season even bigger and better.
Straight from the A has an idea about how that’s going to happen. According to the site’s sources, there are already a couple of changes in place:
Rasheeda and her hubby Kirk Frost have been ride or die for each other for years but the stress and pressure of the show is slowing tearing their once strong relationship to shreds.
I heard several months ago that Kirk really wasn’t feeling the way he was being portrayed on the show and that he almost immediately regretted signing up.
That being said, Kirk will always continue to stand by his wife when it comes to her career goals and the pair would rather split up on air than in “real life,” so guess what that means?
Rasheeda stays and Kirk goes.
Kirk isn’t willing to play the reality show game so he’s stepping back in order to let Rasheeda shine.
That would probably be a good move considering how torn Rasheeda seems between her career and her companion. If she takes on new management like she’s seriously considering there won’t be a need for Dirk on the show anyway and they’ll hopefully have a better chance of keeping their love intact. That’s a change I definitely support but the next possibility is a bit more iffy.
When no one knew who was going to be on the first season of the show, Lil Scrappy’s ex-girlfriend Diamond, who is often a topic of discussion, was rumored to be joining the cast but supposedly had a change of heart. Now, word is her heart has changed again and she has recruited her boyfriend, Souljah Boy, to be a part of the show with her. The way Straight from the A sees it, since she’s already such a hot topic we might as well hear her side of the story straight from the horse’s mouth, rather than in the words of Momma Dee and Scrappy. Though I feel like Souljah Boy would be way too extra as a cast member, I can actually see this panning out. Since Erika and Scrappy are broken up, there really wouldn’t be a purpose for her on the show anymore. If she and Kirk leave that opens up two vacant spots for Diamond and Souljah Boy. That would also bush Buckeey right back on the sidelines, though I’m sure her she’s about to up her antics on these last few episodes to try to land a permanent spot. I’m sure she’d still get some shine next season going at it with Diamond though so we might as well be prepared for the girl fights. Souljah and Diamond would definitely be an interesting addition.
Here’s a clip of them talking about the show on the red carpet of the BET Awards. What do you think about these potential changes? Would you watch Souljah Boy and Diamond on LHHATL?
