Traci Steele lowkey gave baby mamas a bad name as the intolerant and forever turnt up mother of DJ Baby Drew’s son on “Love & Hip-Hop Atlanta.” After nearly every episode, viewers just wanted to ask her, “why you so mad boo?” particularly considering Traci and Drew’s son is 7 years old and they haven’t been a couple for about that same stretch of time. Thankfully, when we got Traci Steele in the office to talk about her appearance on LHHATL and her bitter baby mama issues, Traci said she’s finally done being angry at Drew and she even had some advice for mothers like herself who have made it a habit to act before they think when it comes to the fathers of their children.
Check out our interview with Traci Steele in the video below as she talks about getting over Drew, being a better friend to and co-parent with him, and who she’s dating now. Do you think she finally learned her lesson?
We know we’re not the only ones who saw Lil Scrappy and “Basketball Wives’” reality star Bambi together and thought, what the hell is this all about?
Ever since Erica and Scrappy called it quits, he’s been since prancing around the A with this new arm candy from a fellow VH1 show, prompting everyone to assume their relationship was just that — a show. But when we talked to Bambi before the BET Hip-Hop Awards last week, she told us that’s absolutely not the case.
“We’re together, we’ve been friends for a couple years,” she said. “When I first moved to Atlanta I met Scrap and we were friends and when his relationship ended ours started — whoever it was he was with, it was multiple people so when he was done with everybody he was dealing with, we started.”
About those multiple people…We’ve seen on “Love & Hip-Hop Atlanta” how Scrappy likes to keep one lady by his side and another in his back pocket, which is why we don’t understand a woman getting involved with the ATL rapper and somehow expecting him to be all about them. But when we asked Bambi whether she’s worried about Scrappy cheating on her like he did his exes, she said she’s not worried at all because “she knows him well.”
So you think.
Check out the full interview below and all of Bambi’s other naive musings on her new boo. What do you think about their relationship?
Stevie J’s alleged mistress and aspiring recording artist, Promise B. Mae, is speaking out about rumors that she’s pregnant by him and whether or not she’ll be joining the cast of Love & Hip Hop Atlanta for Season 3.
“Unfortunately, I’m no longer pregnant. That’s a decision I thought long and hard about and I just felt like this is not the situation. Although, I am a grown woman and I should of thought about that before we did what we did… but things happened and I’m only human,” she told MStarz.
She also addressed allegations that she was never really pregnant and only out to use Stevie J for financial gain.
“I make my own money and a lot of people on Twitter and Instagram say ridiculous stuff like ‘Oh yea you better get him for child support,’ I don’t have time for that, I make my own money and been doing that, so I don’t need nobody for no money. I have a lot of things going on. First and foremost I’m a music artist, and I just didn’t think this wasn’t the right time.”
As for the diss track she made slamming Stevie and his rumored wife Joseline Hernandez, B Mae says it was never meant to be a diss record.
“The song was not meant to be diss track. Now the guy that I have on the track with me is a long time friend and we go way back, he’s like a brother to me. I heard what he said and I said ‘oh s–t, this finna make it diss track.’ Although, I threw jabs a Joseline it wasn’t suppose to be a diss track towards Stevie J, But when my homeboy laid down what he laid down I couldn’t say no don’t do that because that’s kind of like my brother and I was just like ‘F**k it’ lets take it all the way.”
In closing, she responded to MiMi Faust, who taunted her during an interview for getting pregnant by Stevie.
“He [Stevie J] told you he’ll, make you a star on Twitter and you cocked your legs opened and got pregnant,” MiMi said during an interview last month with The Streetz Morning Grind.
B. Mae responded, saying:
“No boo-boo, I do not know you. And you do not know me either and I don’t understand how you’re going to go on an radio show and say ‘leave me name out your mouth because you don’t know me’, but at the same time my name is in your mouth and it shouldn’t be. Don’t you have new ni**a and his name is Niko-Niko and why are you worried about anything Stevie has going on and you’re not with him anymore. So sit your old a** down and get in a rocking chair like a grandma should and shut the f**k up. Just like your Ni-a said ‘you’re damaged goods’ and you belong on a shelf somewhere all by your lonesome. You don’t want it with me, I’m not hard to find and leave my name out your mouth!”
It also looks like she’ll be joining the cast of Love & Hip Hop Atlanta for Season 3.
“I definitely see myself on a reality show. Have I been contacted by any reality shows? What I can say is -YES. I have been contacted by a few people from Love and Hip Hop and the only thing I can say about that is that you have to stay tuned to see what happens.”
Well, there will be plenty of drama in store for season three, that’s for sure.
Look closely into her doll face and who do you see? It’s Ariane Davis from “Love And Hip Hop Atlanta!”
If you remembered on this past season of the show, Ariane, who stays with a short pixie, joined K.Michelle for a fun wig-shopping date. She tried on a few styles but at the time didn’t purchase anything. Until now!
For New York Fashion Week, Ariane decided to switch it up and sport a curly laid ‘do and we think she looks gorgeous! She displayed her new locks on Instagram saying :
“Walked and wigged out for @avnahlong’s #NYFW’s show!”
Do you like Ariane’s new ‘do?
Nevermind the daddy in this pic is plum crazy. Let’s just focus on the adorableness that is Kirk and Karter.
On Instagram, “Love & Hip-Hop Atlanta” star Rasheeda just uploaded one of the first pics of her new bundle of joy with her husband, Kirk and we have to admit it is simply precious. Rasheeda captioned the pic saying, “#babykarter having playtime w/ his daddy @frost117❤❤ #babylove.” Kirk also reposted it, appearing to be the loving father most of us were skeptical he’d be. You know, after encouraging his wife to get an abortion and everything.
Although we still haven’t seen little man’s face yet, Rasheeda posted another pic of the 3-week-old’s miniature hand. The new momma said, “He’s been holding my finger for hours! #babykarter#babylove” and it’s probably one of the sweetest photos to ever come from a LHHATL cast member ever.
We love the way Kirk is looking into his son’s eyes in that pic above, but we can’t help but wonder what’s possibly racing through his mind. Caption the photo and tell us what you think.
If I told you this was Momma Dee from “Love & Hip-Hop Atlanta” would you believe me?
Well you should.
A couple of days ago, VH1 posted throwback pics of the cast of LHHATL on their blog, and though the photos of Mimi with pigtails back in the day and Kirk and Rasheeda looking like they haven’t aged one bit were cute, the image I couldn’t get over was the one above of none other than Momma Dee.
I know Glamour Shots can clean people up a lot, but Lil Scrappy’s mother looks downright gorgeous in this shot. Not that she looks terrible now, but it’s just hard to see the woman in this photo shouting “Off with their heads” and retelling stories of being a real-life pimp, and misspelling the word b****. But as they say, pimpin ain’t easy, and when you do a side-by-side of Momma Dee now with this pic, let’s just say, “it’s written all over your face, you don’t have to say a word.”
Can you believe this Momma Dee throwback pic?
You Can’t Fire The Prince Of The South! Scrappy Slams Claims That He’s Been Replaced By Waka Flocka On LHHATL
Industry whispers have been indicating that rapper Waka Flocka and his fiancée, Tammy Rivera, are the latest couple to be added to the ever-changing cast of Love & Hip Hop Atlanta. Immediately following those reports, word also began circulating that Lil’ Scrappy had been axed from the show and Waka— whose real name is Juaquin Malphurs— is actually being brought in to replace him. While the thought of Mona cutting Scrappy from the show around the same time both he and his on-again, off-again boo, Erica Dixon, began new relationships seemed like a bit of a long shot, stranger things have happened. Scrappy recently stopped by 97.9 The Beat and addressed the rumors.
While he couldn’t confirm whether or not Waka, Deb and Tammy have been added to the cast, he did reveal that he will be a part of season three.
“Just to clear something up… just to put some real stuff in your ear, your boy finna be on TV again. I don’t know why they put bad rumors out like I ain’t gon’ be out there no more. I don’t know why they wanna see me in a bad predicament man,” he said.
“I don’t know if Waka gon’ be on there or not because they don’t tell us who gon’ be on there, but we will see,” he continued.
He also addressed recently being arrested for getting into a physical altercation at a gas station.
“Somebody I know just got real disrespectful and irritated the shizanyee out of me. I had to ask him like 50 times to calm down ‘cuz I’m on probation and I can’t be doing all of that. He said the wrong thing to me a couple of times. He looked at my lady friend I had with me and said something to her. I was like, ‘chill out,’ then he tried to you know, buck up on me.”

Part 2 of the Love and Hip Hop Atlanta Reunion was considerably less entertaining than the first half, but there were still moments to discuss. Let’s jump in.
When we find ourselves at the end of a relationship, it’s common for friends and family— in an attempt to soothe and console us— to suggest that we jump right back into the dating game and find someone new. They say things like, “There are other fish in the sea,” and “The world is filled with plenty of guys out there ready to treat you like a queen,” in hopes that their words will rescue you from the feelings of sorrow and loss that you might be struggling with. And while their words may be true and becoming romantically involved with another person may temporarily take your mind off of the emptiness that you’re feeling in your heart, what happens if (or when) you and your rebound guy split? Are you then going to replace the rebound guy with another man as your support system cheerfully shouts, “On to the next,” from the sidelines? And exactly when do you slow down long enough to actually deal with all of the trauma that you’re repeatedly subjecting your heart to?
As women… even more so as black women, we pride ourselves in being strong, fearless and unbreakable. We endure pressures and hardships that are sometimes hard to imagine for those who are on the outside looking in. We’re taught that life is tough and often times unfair, but you grin and bear it and most of all, you never let folks see you sweat. While this is sometimes the motivation that keeps us pushing when the going gets tough, people are rarely ever around to say, “Hey, it’s okay to admit that you’re hurting,” “It’s okay to take time to grieve” and “Taking time to yourself in order to get past this doesn’t make you weak, it makes you human.”
The dating hiatus or man-cation if you will, often bears a negative connotation. Some perceive it as a period when bitter or scorned women wallow in their misery, hating their exes. Others believe it to be a post-break up period when a woman desperately hopes and prays that her ex will come back to her. But in actuality, it’s nothing more than taking a simple break from dating and relationships. It can be a time of healing, self-discovery, self-reflection, emotional rest and personal revelation— none of which are offered by hooking up with a rebound guy. This doesn’t mean you have to spend your days propped in front of a television watching Tyler Perry flicks and indulging in a tub of Häagen-Dazs. It can mean that you’re using the time that you once spent with your significant other to spoil yourself, catch up with old friends, improve on a skill, pick up a new hobby, etc. Best of all, if utilized correctly, a dating hiatus can greatly assist you from bringing old baggage into your next relationship.
I remember when I first reported on Love & Hip Hop Atlanta star MiMi Faust’s new relationship. We didn’t learn about her relationship via some cute little subliminal message on Twitter or some barely visible photograph on Instagram with a vague message attached. She wasn’t spotted cozying up to him in the dim lit corner of some Atlanta night club. They weren’t seen strolling down a popular shopping strip hand-in-hand. Instead, the world learned that MiMi Faust and Stevie J were no longer an item and that she’d found someone new during an über messy interview with popular Atlanta radio station, V-103. The occasion for the interview, you ask? Of all things, she was there to deny allegations made by her daughter’s father and ex-man, Stevie J, that he was granted full custody of their daughter Eva due to her alleged negligent and substance-abusing ways. About 58 seconds into the interview, MiMi alleges that Stevie is only upset because she’s moved on to someone new [enters Nikko].
What was more alarming than the fact that MiMi already had her new guy smack-dab in the middle of her baby daddy drama, was that her break-up with Stevie appeared to be so fresh that most weren’t even aware that the two had split. It seemed like a recipe for relationship disaster, and if you were able to catch the last few episodes from this season of Love & Hip Hop Atlanta, you know that it was. In what seemed like no time, the relationship fell apart with MiMi looking like a lunatic and Nikko referring to her as “damaged goods” in a club full of onlookers.
This of course, is an exaggerated example, but the underlying message is the same. Jumping from relationship to relationship rarely allows time for healing, reflection, emotional rest or anything else other than a new body to keep you warm at night. Slapping a bandage over a physical wound that requires disinfecting, medical attention and treatment won’t make it heal fast. Shouldn’t the same go for emotional wounds as well? A dating hiatus isn’t a prison sentence. It’s not a sign of weakness. It doesn’t mean you’re in denial. It means that you love yourself enough to make sure that you’re emotionally healthy before you expose your heart to another person. It means that you need a minute to yourself. It means a ton of things, but being weak is not one of them. Honestly, which would you consider to be more strong: the woman brave enough to face her emotions and tackle them head on or the woman who decides not to deal with them by drowning her sorrows on the affections of another?
