When the last season of “Love & Hip Hop Atlanta” concluded, Mimi was forced to face the fact that her then boyfriend Nikko is a married man. Although it was confirmed that Nikko and his wife would be appearing in the new season, most assumed that his dealings with Mimi would be minimal. However, judging by a season four teaser, this definitely is not the case.
Instead of being apologetic for misleading his ex and making her his mistress, he slithers back on the scene talking about how he “owns” her because they’re under contract. It’s unclear what sort of contract he’s referring to, but we’re assuming Mimi gave him some sort of managerial role.
Anyway, Stevie isn’t going for it and quickly comes to her defense because no one is going to “violate his family.” Perhaps it’s a good thing that Stevie is around to stand up to Nikko; he’s clearly the lesser of two evils at this point.
It’s tough to tell how this will all pan out simply going off of the 30-second teaser, but we can say that the standoff between Stevie and Nikko will result in a physical altercation. Of course, this isn’t the first time that the two have come to blows and knowing VH1, it won’t be the last.
It’s probably safe to assume that most of the season will revolve around Mimi considering that none of the other cast members—not even Miss Joseline Hernandez—appear in the teaser, which first aired during last night’s episode of “Love & Hip Hop New York.”
Season four of “Love & Hip Hop Atlanta” returns to VH1 Monday, April 20 at 8/7c. Will you be tuning in?
Love & Hip Hop Atlanta
Watching Nikko Smith or Nikko London, or whoever the hell he was, on “Love and Hip Hop Atlanta” was like watching a snake-like predator slither in and slowly wreck havoc on Mimi Faust’s life. And though she invited him in willingly, there were several occasions where we wondered why she couldn’t see what we saw.
And even though it took a while and it produced a sex tape, that union is, thankfully, finished. But it doesn’t look like we’ll be able to say that same thing for Nikko’s tenure on “Love and Hip Hop Altanta.”
According to Mimi Faust herself, not only is Nikko coming back for the new season of LHHATL, he’s bringing along his wife. She confirmed the news during an interview with Cotten Kandi.
Yes, remember last summer the news broke that the whole time Nikko was dating Mimi, he was simultaneously married to a woman named Margo (or Margeaux…if you want to be fancy) Simms? And Nikko didn’t deny it. Instead, he discussed it openly in an interview with Vibe.
In case you missed it, Tumblr told us that she looks like this:
Well, you know Mona Scott Young wasn’t going to let that goldmine of a storyline slide. So we’ll be seeing exactly who this Margo woman is, through the lens of VH1.
Do you think this is a good move for the show? Are you trying to see exactly what type of woman would knowingly let her husband galavant around with another woman? Or is this just too messy to stomach? So many questions that need to be answered.
Moment Of Truth Part 2, Mimi Explains Choosing All The Wrong Men All The Time: “I Never Had Parental Guidance”
Moment of Truth is back with the second part of our introductory interview with Mimi Faust. Picking up where they left off with Mimi’s life as a young adult, Egypy Sherrod talks to Mimi Faust, the mother and lover, and asks her how her childhood affected her relationships with men and what she’s doing to make sure her daughter, Eva, doesn’t have the same traumatic experiences as she did.
Watch part 2 in the video below and tell us what you think. If you missed part 1, watch it here.
If you thought you understood Mimi Faust before now, you didn’t. The “Love & Hip-Hop Atlanta” star has certainly made some questionable decisions in her lifetime — many of which we’ve witnessed during her recent foray into reality TV — but a recent interview is putting some of her actions into perspective for us.
Sitting down with Egypt Sherrod for MadameNoire TV’s first episode of “Moment of Truth,” Mimi walked us through her childhood like we’ve never heard before. A lot of us were aware that Mimi’s mother chose scientology over her at the age of 13, but hearing Mimi describe being called “tar baby, “jigaboo,” and a “freeloader” by fellow scientoligists before being kicked out onto the streets with tears in her eyes not only made us sympathize with Mimi but also respect her ability to take care of herself — especially when she found out the man she thought was her father all along wasn’t and still chose to bounce from house to house to maintain some sense of independence.
The clip below is only the first of three parts of our sit down. Watch and tell us what you think.

Mimi & Nikko Still Smashing? And Other Memorable Moments From The Love And Hip Hop Atlanta Reunion Part 3
Last night VH1 aired part three of the season 3’s “Love and Hip Hop Atlanta” reunion, the last and final part. And up until now we really haven’t discussed it too much. Honestly, that’s because aside from a few clips here and there, we haven’t been watching it. Everybody knows that the cast of LHHATL has been known to do too much. But last night, my sister who is still a fan was watching it and so I decided to join her to see how they ended this whole thing.
I See A Strong And Weak Woman: Mimi Faust On What She Sees In The Mirror, Nikko & Concerns For Eva Around Stevie & Joseline
Mimi is an interesting character…and I do mean character. Try as she might to make us believe she really finds herself in these sketchy situations with one man after another; at this point, we all know that most of this is certainly staged for the cameras. It’s just too far fetched. I decided a while ago that “Love and Hip Hop Atlanta” was just a soap opera, masquerading as a reality show. Still entertaining.
Either way, it’s entertaining to contemplate the stories she’ll tell in her next interview. This time she spoke with TheJasmineBrand about the ending of her relationship with Nikko, his wife, making up with K. Michelle, concerns for her daughter spending time with Stevie and Joseline and what she sees when she looks in the mirror. Take a look below.
Did you ever have any inclination that Nikko was married?
I’ll tell you what was very odd, the year before when Erica and I went to the psychic, the psychic said, ‘The guy that you’re with is married.’ I didn’t know what she was talking about. I wasn’t with Stevie but Stevie is my daughter’s father, so I just assumed that she was talking about Stevie. It never occurred to me that it was Nikko.
Have you spoken to him since the episode aired?
No, I have not. Absolutely not.
Have you ever met his wife?
No, never met his wife.
Does Nikko have any children
If he has kids, he doesn’t have any that I know about. And I did ask him and he said no.
What’s your relationship status?
We’re not together. There’s no relationship, there’s no status.
When did it end?
It hadn’t been good for a little while but that day that I found out that he was married, is when everything just got…it was just bad. And it was never right after that. I wasn’t able to get back on board with him with that was the case.
Did you see any red flags?
The wife would call an awful lot. And when I would ask him about it, he would say, that’s his ex, they’re still friends, they didn’t have a bad breakup like Stevie and I and they still communicate, would be his response. He would refer to her as his ex.
Do you feel like there’s any way you forgive him?
I can forgive him. I will probably never trust him again. Yeah, I can forgive him and move on.
Did his lying about the wife make you believe even more that he leaked the sex tape?
As far as the tape is concerned, the tape, the bag was stolen. That bag did not come off the plane. So I really cannot point my finger at him 100 percent.
Earlier this week, we told you that Mimi Faust and K. Michelle made amends and put and end to their long-lived feud, which began with K. Michelle’s disapproval of Mimi’s now ex-boyfriend, Nikko.
“@Mimifaust I can be a b—-h in my delivery sometimes, but for real, I know your heart. Ur a good person and will always have mad luv 4 u!” K.Michelle tweeted.
“@Kmichelle no matter what you have said or done to me in the past and present…I appeciate the love ma. It’s all good.”
Though some assumed that this was a sign that K and Mimi would be rekindling their friendship, the “Damn” singer says this definitely isn’t the case.
“I love Mimi to death, but I don’t want her as my friend,” K honestly told Hip Hollywood.
Strangely, K says “Love Hip Hop Atlanta” producers wanted her to be the one to break the news to Mimi about Nikko’s marriage, but Mimi refused to film the scene with her.
“Actually I was flown in to break the news that Nikko was married but she wouldn’t film with me because [she] knew my mouth,” the reality star joked.
According to K, the producers of the show found out about Nikko’s marriage before Mimi and tried to set the whole interaction up. But she insists that Mimi knew nothing about Nikko’s marital status.
“That’s why I poke fun and do jokes, but at the end of the day I tweeted her because I wanted her to know you’re really not a bad person and you really don’t deserve that.”
Well, maybe it’s best that these two love each other from a distance. How messy of the LHHATL producers to try to set Mimi up like that though.
Earlier this week, viewers watched Nikko Smith come clean to Mimi Faust about his 7-year marriage to Margo Simms. Shortly after that episode aired, the deceitful reality star spoke with Vibe about his marriage.
“I didn’t want to lie about it,” he said. “Let’s face it. The woman I’m married to, she’s never gonna come on TV. I could have denied it, and this would only be speculation, but they would have never really known. I chose to tell the truth. I don’t know if that was a good thing or bad thing, for me.”
Now, Mimi is speaking out about the shocking revelation.
“I found out about his marriage, actually, on MediaTakeOut,” Mimi told The Jasmine Brand. “I didn’t believe it at first because MTO prints a lot of things that aren’t true, but something said let me just ask him because I’m getting a lot of phone calls and stuff. So, I just said this is the stuff on MTO and I came to him just so matter of fact and he just came out and was like, ‘Yeah, sure I’m married.’ What?!?”
Strangely, Mimi says that a psychic tried to tell her that Nikko had a wife.
“I’ll tell you what was very odd. The year before, when Erica and I went to the psychic and the psychic said ‘The guy that you’re with is married.’ Now…I didn’t know if she was talking about Stevie, and I wasn’t with Stevie but he is my daughter’s father and it never occurred to me that it was Nikko. I just assumed that she was talking about Stevie but the psychic did tell me that. It never occurred to me to ask Nikko.”
In addition to the psychic, Mimi admits that there’s another red flag she overlooked.
“Um, the wife would call an awful lot and when I would ask him about it he would say that’s an ex, they’re still friends, they didn’t have a bad break-up like Stevie and I and they still communicate. That would be his response, but yea, she did call him a lot and he would refer to her as his ex.”
Love and Hip Hop Atlanta star, Nikko Smith, boyfriend to Mimi Faust, recently admitted that he’s been married the whole time these two have known each other. Now for everyone watching, this was no surprise at all. It was very clear from early on that Nikko was an opportunist, trying to use Mimi and anyone else to get a bit of shine.
Recently, VIBE sat down with Smith to learn why and how he managed to do what he did for so long.
Nikko told VIBE, a story that was consistent with what Mimi has said on several different occasions, the two met 13 years ago, around the same time she and Stevie first starting doing their dysfunctional dance, and as Nikko puts it “used each other at different events throughout the years. I guess you could call it a one-night stand.”
Then VIBE asked her if this was the same time she was messing with Stevie. And Nikko gave this peculiar answer:
“She might have been with Stevie off and on. This was around the time they met. She was messing with him off and on. The same time when he was messing with Puff, and while he was messing with Annette.”
Umm… did he just say that Stevie and Puff…as in Puff Daddy were sleeping together? Maybe I missed something. VIBE didn’t press the question, so I guess we’ll have to find out later.
Anyway, he got on the show because the producers approached him to be Mimi’s new love interest.
“They were looking for someone to be someone she was dating. They wanted to find somebody for her to date. Then I came along. It was something that I had to think about.”
But NIkko, who claims he was an executive in LA with a group signed to him, decided he’d give the tv world a try.
And while he was open, he wasn’t exactly pleased with the way he was portrayed on the show, he said he came off looking like an opportunist and a male chauvinist.
Hard to believe otherwise but let’s continue. Then they asked him about his marriage and how it all went down with Mimi finding out.
So, as we heard on the show, you are married. Can you recap how it happened?
After the mediatakeout article, she confronted me. Me and her did a scene. She asked me about all these rumors. I had to tell her on camera. I didn’t want to lie about it. Let’s face it. The woman I’m married to, she’s never gonna come on TV. I could have denied it, and this would only be speculation, but they would have never really known. I chose to tell the truth. I don’t know if that was a good thing or bad thing, for me.
How long have you been married?
I’ve been with this woman ten years. We got married in 2007. Our relationship was really strong. We decided to get married. In the process, our relationship fell apart, but it was a bad breakup. It was a messy breakup. We remained cool with each other. She was seeing someone else, and I was a free man. But we were separated.
Did your wife know you were going to do the show?
When I decided to do the show, me and [my wife] wasn’t really rocking with that. But I knew I had this responsibility. When I decided to do the show, she came to me and said ‘I know you about to do the show, do your thing.’ She was actually with somebody in New York, that she’s still with right now.
And you didn’t tell Mimi any of this?
She didn’t know any of this. I made a decision not to tell her, because there was so much going on with this Stevie shit. I’m looking at it different from the way someone else may be looking at it. I was taking this to my grave. This was some secretive shit I was doing. I didn’t tell Mimi. I didn’t feel as that she needed to know. Going into this third season, I think I might have stretched it out a little too long. I could have sat down and told her, but I didn’t it. I didn’t do it.
So are we going to see your wife on an upcoming episode?
She’s definitely not coming on the show. It ain’t got nothing to do with me convincing me. It’s not her kind of show. And the fact that she’s moved on already with her life. It ain’t like she’s gonna come on to bash me.
I can never trust anything that comes from this dude’s mouth. Especially, when Johnny, his roommate, was just on the television talking about how Nikko and his wife were business partners, even suggesting that she encouraged Nikko to do the show so they could both us it as some type of come up. And more than that, he alleged they’re still married because they share a connection. After a little bit of digging, that might not be so far from the truth.
The internets, including MediaTakeOut, the original website where Mimi learned Nikko was married, have claimed that Nikko’s wife’s name is Margo (or Margeaux) Simms, a bartender at Webster Hall in New York City.
And looking through Margo’s Tumblr page, there was an image of her and Nikko together promoting some type of mixtape for their group Invaderz. This was back in 2011 though. Still, there is or was some type of connection between the two. On the following page, check the social media pics of Nikko and this alleged wife together from a few years back, just two years before he joined LHHATL in 2013.
