During season one of Love & Hip Hop Atlanta, we saw scorned baby mama MiMi Faust ditch her spiel about being hurt and angered over her then-boyfriend Stevie J’s filthy philandering ways, to talk of getting even by demanding a percentage of the money he makes on his artist and side-chick Joseline Hernandez. We never did find out if Stevie actually upheld his end of the bargain, but during a recent interview with Mara of 4UMF, MiMi claimed that Stevie calls her over to come and get her cut whenever Joseline drops money off after a show. She also spoke on her harshly criticized maid photoshoot. Check out some of what she had to say below.
On what she was thinking when she posed for those “s*xy” maid photos:
“She [Joseline] wants to call me a maid in every scene; she’s called me a maid and ‘Molly the maid’. So I figure let me capitalize off of it. I did a photo shoot, got t-shirts printed up. But I’m not a maid in that sense – I’m made as I’m a made woman, m-a-d-e. I’m made that way, so I have my own business, I have for 13 years, I’m an entrepreneur, I’m a business woman. So she can joke all she wants to about me being a maid; I’m doing real Shyte, what are you doing girl?”
On rumors that she’s engaged in a threesome with Stevie and Joseline:
“That’s a complete fabrication, a complete bold-faced lie. None of that is true, none of it. Girl (laughs), Mediatakeout is the devil. For some reason, whoever is over that just has it out for me. I don’t think they’ve ever printed one good story about me, ever. Always something crazy.”
On Joseline hinting that the threesome rumors were true:
“She’s good at that. She’s good at saying half of something to make people believe this is what it is. She does it all the time. She’ll say he bought her all this stuff and put it up on Instagram to make people think he did this. He wouldn’t have bought her anything, she would’ve bought it herself, but she’s does stuff like that all the time, so it doesn’t surprise me.”
On if she’s getting a percentage of what Stevie makes off of Joseline:
Hold on. When she goes on the road, and comes home and drops him off money, he tells me to come pick it up. ‘Come get this money ma. She just got back and dropped it off. Come get this money.’ I’ll be right there, thank you very much sir.”
I guess Mimi is trying to turn a negative into a positive all in one camera flash — or she just wanted an excuse to dress up and show off her backside. Either way, the result is still the same: Mimi Faust in a maid outfit on Instagram.
Poking fun at Joseline coming in Stevie J’s house and addressing her by saying, “Hey Maid,” Mimi decided to embrace the title and posted the pic above with the caption:
YESSSSS I got my “MADE” outfit on #KeepItClean
Sounds like she’s pointing out the fact that she’s a self-made woman, not necessarily a maid like Joseline would like to think. And while I’m not knocking that hustle, can we pause for the thirst that is this pic?
I’m just trying to figure out how much time went in to finding this outfit, hair and makeup, calling up a photographer, staging the scene, and perfectly tooting her booty up to snap this sultry photo. It could certainly be worse, but we can’t deny Mimi is doing the absolute most right now. Caption this pic and tell us what you think is going through her head in this photo.
Tonight’s the night that “Love & Hip-Hop Atlanta” returns for its second season and as we’ve seen from the super duper ratchet trailers there are more than a few changes this season when it comes to relationships. Despite having moved on from their suspect partners, Stevie J and Lil Scrappy, when we got the chance to catch up with Mimi and Erica we couldn’t help but ask them why they stayed so long with men who clearly weren’t about much — including them. That’s when the ladies told us they’re no different than any other “female” out there. Mmm’kay.
Check out the full interview above and let us know what you think about Mimi and Erica’s progress — or lack thereof — since last season.
Back in February we learned that the seemingly solid friendship formed between Love & Hip Hop Atlanta cast members K.Michelle and MiMi Faust had somehow fallen apart. Things got pretty ugly after K told MiMi that she suspected that her new beau Niko was down low. Their bickering took an even crazier turn once things got physical backstage at one of K’s shows at B.B. King’s in New York City. Although she quickly took to her Twitter page to taunt her former friend after the altercation, the “Bury My Heart” singer admits that she regrets putting her hands on MiMi.
“You know I recently spoke with Mimi — I can’t give the show away — but I did apologize to her because at no means is it ever appropriate to slap somebody. Especially with my mom being there and that being my first sold out show at B. B. King’s and that’s very monumental for an artist and for you to come to my event; I don’t do that,” K. Michelle told ABC News Radio.
Sounds pretty mature of her, right? Well, before you start oo-ing, aww-ing and crossing your fingers, hoping that the ladies put their differences aside and become friends again, you should probably read the rest of her response.
“I will take the responsibility…I should’ve just walked away from Mimi instead of making her smell the flowers,” the Memphis native continued.
Moral of the story: K.Michelle rarely ever offers public apologies without sprinkling in a teaspoon of shade. She also maintains her beliefs that Niko digs the fellas and the ladies. When asked if MiMi and Niko have already gone their separate ways she responded:
“I can’t tell you that. You know I’m always right in my beliefs. You know, I’m very intuitive to things and to people. Yeah. That’s for you guys to find out; for her to tell.”
Speaking of shade, the singer also had a few words to say about her Love & Hip Hop Atlanta co-star Rasheeda and her unborn child.
“I have no respect for her. I hope her child doesn’t have the same morals as her and her husband. The world is already messed up enough. We don’t even need another seed that has no morals, no nothing,”
To each his own, but I’ve got to say that there’s something about discussing your enemy’s unborn child that seems morally wrong unless you’re being a mature adult and offering well wishes.
A couple of weeks ago our associate editor, Veronica Wells, reported on the scandalous story involving Sesame Street actor Roscoe Orman, who played Mr. Gordon on the popular television program. According to reports, the 68-year-old actor left his partner of 40 years, Sharon Ormon, for a much younger woman by the name of Kimberley Lamarque, whom Sharon says he was carrying on an affair with. He married Lamarque not long after he left Sharon, who gave birth to four of his children. Here’s the kicker: He never married Sharon. To make matters worse, when Roscoe picked up and left her back in 2010, she was left dead broke and in danger of losing the home that the pair once shared to foreclosure. My heart really went out to Sharon. After investing four decades into their relationship and giving that man four children, she walked away with nothing more than what a jump-off walks away with after her man of choice decides that he’s through with her.
A few days later, I reported on a follow-up story. Roscoe’s jilted lover revealed that her ex’s new wife wasn’t the only woman he’d cheated on her with, expressing that he frequently stepped out during their relationship. She also dropped the bomb that Roscoe also had a child outside of their relationship. To make matters worse, she found out about Roscoe’s love child while she was pregnant. Yeah, she and the other woman were carrying his children at the same time. Upon hearing this, my well of sympathy for Ms. Sharon dried up a bit. Make that a lot. After all of that, why stay? When asked why she never left Roscoe despite his filthy, philandering ways, she responded:
“I wasn’t going to jump up and leave my family.”
And this brings me to my point. My vivid imagination took me to those sleepless nights where Sharon probably waited up for Roscoe to come home. I imagine her sad and disappointed face when the paternity suit papers arrived in the mail. I imagined her sitting at her kitchen table, agonizing over the details of the suit, wondering how the man that she thought she knew so well could hurt her in such a way. Then, my mind flashed to an image of her desperately holding onto the love that they once shared, telling herself that if she holds on, things just might get better. As you can see, they never did. In fact, after dogging her out all of these years, he got up and left.
While every situation is unique, most serial cheaters don’t just up and decide to stop cheating to do better, and in my opinion, simply waiting around for them to do so seems a bit foolish. I am not saying once a cheater, always a cheater, because I believe that people that really desire a change have the ability to do it. But, I am saying that if a woman simply rolls over and accepts her man’s cheating ways, why would he stop? He’s getting the best of both worlds. The Mashonda-Swizz-Beatz-Alicia Keys love triangle is another situation that comes to mind. Swizz allegedly cheating with Alicia was really only the final nail in the coffin of his marriage with Mashonda, but it certainly was not the first time he cheated on her, seeing as how he had a little girl outside of their relationship. She stuck around and what did he do? He dogged her out and eventually left her for what he considered to be a “better” prospect. A rather extreme example is the tumultuous relationship between Love & Hip Hop: Atlanta stars Stevie J and Mimi Faust. From the outside looking in, it appeared that MiMi stuck with Stevie despite his cheating (and impregnating) ways for so long that he eventually became bolder with it. And eventually, the fact that she knew he was cheating on her no longer mattered to him.
I understand that there’s probably a lot that went on behind close doors between all three of these couples that we as the public may never know about, but the point that I am trying to make is that tolerating infidelity (from both males and females), only seems to breed more cheating.
Have you ever been in a relationship with a serial cheater?

‘Joseline Was A Gift:’ Mona Scott-Young Reflects On Her Unexpected Encounter With Joseline Hernandez During A LHHATL Casting Meeting
When one thinks of reality TV series Love & Hip Hop: Atlanta, chances are the outspoken, stripper-turned-recording-artist, Joseline Hernandez will come to mind. While the other characters may have interesting storylines, the Joseline-Stevie J-MiMi saga is arguably one of the most entertaining love triangles on the ratchet reality TV circuit. I mean really, what would Love & Hip Hop: Atlanta be without the slick-talking, heart-on-my-sleeve wearing Joseline Hernandez? If you watched the show’s “Dirty Little Secrets” special, which aired December of last year, you may have already heard a brief snippet of one LHHATL producer discussing how Joseline was added to the cast. During a recent press event, Love & Hip Hop visionary Mona Scott-Young revealed to The Drop FM just how thankful she is to have crossed paths with the reality television star we now know as Joseline Hernandez.
“Joseline was a gift from the reality gods. I actually wasn’t even anticipating meeting Joseline. I was meeting with Mimi and we were in the lobby of a hotel where I was doing the interviews. We were waiting on Stevie [J] to come and meet us. He came in with my partner and we were talking to them and I said, ‘Oh yeah, did you meet Mimi? And this is Stevie. Mimi is Stevie’s girlfriend.’ He pulls me to the side like, ‘Well, if MiMi is Stevie’s girlfriend, who’s the chick he was kissing in the parking lot?”
Yes, Joseline and Stevie’s sexual indiscretions are what landed her a spot on the show. While Mona is thanking the reality TV cosmos for allowing her to cross paths with Joseline, it appears that the feeling is mutual. Thanks to Mona and Steebie, Joseline doesn’t have to go “back to the strip club.”
“I will never forget the first time I gave Joseline a check and she cried. Prior to that she has never seen her name printed on a check because she was only ever paid in dollar bills,” Mona said last week before suggesting that her shows acts as a life-changing platform for cast members.
Something tells me MiMi Faust doesn’t share these sentiments.
Can you imagine LHHATL without Joseline? Do you think you’d still watch?
Sleazy Steebie, Joseline Hernandez And ‘Molly The Maid’ Are Back! VH1 Releases ‘Love & Hip Hop: Atlanta’ Teaser
The Love & Hip Hop season finale aired last night and while some may have been a little sad to see Joe, Tahiry and the gang go, the good news is that they’re likely to return next season. The even better news is that their departure means that the Love & Hip Hop: Atlanta’s Season 2 debut will be airing soon! Monday, April 22nd at 8/7c to be exact!
The network recently dropped a trailer for the new season, and if your Olivia Pope gut instincts told you that we’re in for one hell of a ride, you were 100% correct! The trailer opens with a half-dressed Joseline Hernandez strutting into a home that I’m guessing belongs to Stevie. She quickly finds her way to the kitchen where
Molly Mimi and Stevie are seated.
“I see you got on your maid outfit like you always do,” Joseline says to Mimi, looking her up and down.
You can probably guess that all hell broke loose after that. The clip quickly cuts to Mimi spazzing on Stevie in a bathroom.
“This b***h wanna call me and maid and you not gonna say nothing?” Mimi angrily yells at Stevie before throwing a cup of what appears to be water in his face.
Meanwhile on the other side of town, it appears that Shay is still running around Atlanta all teary-eyed over Scrappy going back to Erica (although it seemed obvious that she knew she was the other women to begin with. Go figure). During a scene that shows the former Flavor of Love reality star holding back tears,
the Queen Momma Dee attempts to console her.
“Just watch out. Change is coming,” Momma Dee assures her.
I’m not really sure what change Momma Dee was referring to, but I’m sure it won’t be long before we all find out. Right after the video clip ended, all I could hear in my head was Kevin Hart saying, “It’s about to go down.”
Turn the page to see the madness for yourself. Will you be tuning in this season?
Due to the escalating beef between “Love & Hip Hop: Atlanta” stars Mimi Faust and K.Michelle, Power 105.1′s The Breakfast Club gave both ladies the opportunity to call up the show, speak their peace and clear the air this morning. The hosts also gave Mimi’s boyfriend Nikko a chance to address K.Michelle’s claims that he’s on the down low. Both Nikko and K.Michelle hurled some pretty huge allegations at each other, but the stories are so conflicting, it’s quite evident that someone is lying. Check out both of their responses and let us know what you think.
“She [K.Michelle] says a lot of things and I don’t even know the girl. I have no idea [why she thinks I'm down low]. All I know is that she might be mad because I ain’t give her the d. She came at me and I turned her down. I told her ‘You know, you ain’t really my type. I’m with Mimi.’ So, she just wanna throw allegations out there.”
“I just believe she’s a homewrecker. She just don’t wanna see nobody happy around her. I don’t really know much about her, I just hear all the speculations.”
“I am not gay at all. I don’t have a gay bone in my body or a bisexual bone in my body.”
“Do you know I had never met him a day in my life until she brought him to my house? Let me tell you what’s going on. The dude is down low. You can’t take my opinion from me. I know you wanna cover stuff up or do whatever you have to do. I don’t know you and I think everybody that knows me know that I don’t date no fairy-looking men. He looks like a fairy. I would never do that. Mimi like them kind of dudes. That ain’t even my type of dude. You don’t have no job. This man has a roommate. The roommate is gay and they have a rap group. They are roommates in Atlanta and the rent isn’t even high in Atlanta. You do the math…”
“I said ‘this guy looks a little suspect.’ Ariane and me, we talked to Mimi as friends and we said, ‘something isn’t right.’ Ariane said, ‘I know for a fact, I have proof that this man [Nikko's roommate] is gay.’ The gay community [in Atlanta] knows that this man in down low. Now, I don’t care what you do or who you poke, I just don’t appreciate downlow men. If I’m your friend, Mimi I’m going to tell you that this man is really using you. You really are the sidechick again because he has a boyfriend.”
“I understand you don’t want to look stupid on TV, because I took up for you, every show I had and we all go through things and look stupid for men. But, you’re about to damn near get kicked off of the show because he got you running around, just like Stevie, like a little puppet.”
Which story do you believe?
Check out audio of both Nikko and K.Michelle’s interviews on the next page.
Earlier today we reported that “Love & Hip Hop: Atlanta” star, Mimi Faust responded to a physical altercation that she was involved in with cast member K.Michelle recently. According to Mimi’s statement released to the Jasmine Brand, there wasn’t an actual fight. Instead, the statement says that K.Michelle simply hit Mimi with flowers and that was the end of the altercation. Now, in a
statement Twitter-rant of her own, K.Michelle is implying that things went down quite differently than the manner in which Mimi’s camp may want you to believe.
“You should not have brought your skinny A$$ 2my show talking crazy 2me. U got popped. U can’t get mad cuz I think ur boyfriend is down low,” she tweeted.
“Defend yourself not a man u just met who is only using u 4TV. I’ll hurt u with the truth before I tell u a lie. Ain’t nobody got time 4that.”
“Now I’m done with it, I’m in a good place and plan on staying there. Truth hurts deal wit it.”
“A real friend will hurt u with the truth before they tell u a lie,” she finished.
I suppose we’ll all have to wait and see how things actually went down when the new season of “Love & Hip Hop: Atlanta” airs in April, since I highly doubt that Mona allowed that moment to go down without VH1 cameras hovering around. The singer also officially announced during a D.C. concert that she will not be returning to “Love & Hip Hop: Atlanta” after this season, which was actually caught on film by Aimer Amour Magazine.
“I’m announcing that, I won’t be on ‘Love & Hip Hop’…I just feel like when God is brining you to the positive, it’s very hard to say ‘Thank you Jesus and f**k you b****es’.”
Check the next page for footage of K.Michelle semi-addressing the fight and announcing her departure from the show. What do you think of her reaction to the fight? Will you miss on her on “Love & Hip Hop: Atlanta”?
There was a time when it seemed that Mimi was one of the few Love and Hip Hop castmates K Michelle could actually get along with. Well, those days are over. According to a representative from Mimi Faust’s camp, the two got into a physical altercation last week after one of K Michelle shows. It didn’t come to blows though, K Michelle just hit her costar with some flowers. Yes, you read that correctly she hit her with some flowers.
The Jasmine Brand released a statement from Mimi’s people:
We have been working closely with our client, Mimi Faust, since the incident occurred hours ago. Although we do not yet understand the full scope of the incident, we do know that false allegations and rumors has been projected across media air waves concerning last night’s incident between Love & Hip Hop ATL cast members, K. Michelle and Mimi Faust.
Ms. Faust is currently unharmed and never went to the hospital to be treated for a busted eardrum. The incident started in the dressing room where K. Michelle simply hit Ms. Faust with flowers after seeming a little irritated with questions about earlier statements made in a prior interview. However, there were no damages done. In actuality, Ms. Faust left the venue and continued her night by visiting and enjoying herself in other New York City prestigious venues.
So this sounds like this had something to do with K Michelle going to the Breakfast Club talking about how she thought Mimi’s new boyfriend was on the down low. Messy, indeed. Here’s what Mimi had to say about the altercation.
“Recalling all of the past incidents with K. Michelle and other cast members, she never seems to wants to talk things out; the end results are always violent. That’s not the type of person I am and to continue to fight with K. Michelle would have been pointless.”
There’s no telling how all of this foolery got started; but we’re hoping the “Love and Hip Hop” producers caught this on camera. As tacky as it sounds like it was, I would love to see K Michelle hit Mimi with some flowers. It all just sounds like a bad SNL sketch. Who does that? But then again, K Michelle was the same chick who picked up a fork and aimed it at Karlie Redd.
Has anyone else noticed that even during their off season, the ATL cast is still far more entertaining than what’s currently going on with the New York branch?
But really, ratchetness aside, I see why K Michelle has said that this will probably be her last season on “Love and Hip Hop.” In her interview with the Breakfast Club, she said she can’t continue to be blessed by God only to spit in His face by continuing to act a fool out here in these streets. Sure, Mimi should have left her alone backstage. That was not the time to address her comments, or any other situation, but K Michelle should have never hit the airwaves talking about someone else’s man. As long as she’s not sleeping with someone she thinks might be gay, why does it matter to her? And furthermore, why was it her place to tell a New York radio station? She’s gotta do better. She just can’t seem to stay away from the madness, whether it’s fabricated and instigated by the producers or not, she always falls for it.
What do you make of this flower beating incident?
