At some point or another, most “Love & Hip Hop Atlanta” fans have probably starred blankly at the television, wondering why Rasheeda is still putting up with Kirk’s nonsense. As if he didn’t do enough damage last season by stepping out on her and asking her to abort their child, he seems to be up to the same foolish shenanigans this season. But Rasheeda says she’ll continue to fight to keep their marriage together until there’s no fight left in her because although things are really bad now, they’ve had some amazing times as well.
“Although we have these bumps, it’s been hella years of just really great times and beautiful marital bliss to a certain extent. I feel like I’ll work on it until you ain’t go no more fight,” the new mom told VH1. And even if a lot of times you might look crazy, it’s all about your own heart.”
She went on to say that what she does in her marriage won’t be swayed by public opinion because there’s no way viewers can have an accurate picture of what’s going on in their relationship.
“It ain’t what the f*ck everybody’s opinion is about your marriage because people see those two minutes of a clip, and don’t see everything else that happens.”
As for whether or not the two will consider legally separating for a while, Rasheeda says:
“I think it’s always a possibility. Some people don’t believe in it and I’ve seen people who have verbally said they don’t believe in it and have been divorced. I think it’s something that can happen. You can’t really call it because you never know what could really happen. I just feel like with me I went into a committed situation, and now we have these bumps that we’re going through.”
Rasheeda also touched on Kirk’s most recent stunt, where he tried to hire a woman he met at a bar to be their son’s nanny.
“My real first thoughts were ‘Oh this must be one of your little cousins or some sh*t that I don’t remember.’ That’s what I was thinking,” she explained. “The reason I didn’t go H.A.M is because I think sometimes you need to know a what a situation is first. I called it right because I don’t think she knew what she was walking in to.”
“One thing about a man is that if they’re going to do certain things, you shouldn’t lay everything out,” the reality star continued. “So I was like let me be calm to see what she was told. ‘What was said. What was done? The reason why you’re here?’ Let me find that out first before I tell him to escort your little boney a** out the door. Even though I was fired up I felt like I needed to be grown though.”
Well, all we can say is best of luck to them.
For nearly two years, Love and Hip-Hop Atlanta has brought us the rachet drama we can’t help but love and loathe. To celebrate the show’s third season (which kicked off last week) we’re taking a look back at 15 of the biggest scandals to come out of the Atlanta franchise… so far.
Mimi and Nikko’s Sex Tape
Last month Mimi and Nikko devised a whole new use for shower rods in a sex tape salaciously titled Mimi and Nikko: Scandal in Atlanta.
If you caught Wednesday’s episode of “Love & Hip Hop Atlanta,” chances are you witnessed Kirk Frost swab his infant son on national television with the intent of establishing paternity of the child. It’s no secret that Kirk, for whatever reason, had doubts about whether or not Rasheeda had been faithful to him. But seeing him swab baby Karter for the world to see was a bit much. According to Kirk, he has been through a paternity mix-up before and simply wished to avoid going through it again.
“I’m going to be honest. It’s a honest answer,” Kirk expressed during a recent appearance on the Ryan Cameron show. “First of all, I found out I had another child, I met him when he was almost 18 years old. I felt like another guy was raising my child until he was 18 years old. I feel like I was robbed of knowing I had a child for that many years. For me, if I have anymore kids, I don’t want to take the woman’s word on it. I want to check myself.”
As for the scene where he swabs little Karter, Kirk says:
“That’s me checking to make sure that’s my child. Everybody talking about how light skin your kids, I’m not going to torture myself and sit here and listen, now I know. I’m not saying its right or wrong, I’m just tired of that.”
“It makes me sounds crazy, but when you have a child where does it come from? It comes out of a woman. We have to take your word. Are you perfect? Wife don’t mean that I should believe you.”
“He sounds like a fool,” Rasheeda interjected. “I’ve never put you in a situation to feel like you needed to swab Karter. You stepped out.”
The reality stars also confirmed recent rumors that producers have beefed up security during “Love & Hip Hop Atlanta” filming sessions.
“Our job is crazy, you’re going through metal detectors,” said Kirk.
“It’s like that, now even when we’re working they take on extra precautions not only to protect you, maybe from getting into it with another cast mate but other people who just wilding out,” Rasheeda added. “People do crazy stuff—so we have to keep extra security on deck because people be getting out of hand.”
Rasheeda has really tough skin. That’s all I’ll say.
Watch part one of their interview below. Check the next page for part two.
This week on Love & Hip-Hop Rasheeda talked about being in a relationship with her estranged husband, Kirk, for 17 years. That seemed like an awfully long time looking at the youthful new mother and rapper, but this throwback pic of the two rocking Karl Kani and Tommy together is all the proof we need that the pair has been an item for nearly two decades.
Rasheeda’s Instagram fan page posted the #TBT photo above under the @rasheeda_bosschick username and when I saw the pic it was just too good not to share. The pre- Mr. and Mrs. Frost look so cute together in what I assume was their late teens or early 20s hanging out together young and in love. So far, neither half has endorsed the photo with a retweet, but we wonder if they saw the photo would it help them get back to better times when they were deeply in love and committed to one another. Ooops, almost forgot Rasheeda’s still doing her part so perhaps Kirk is the only one who needs to see this. Feel free to Tweet him and pass the love along.
It’s time to give credit where credit is due because Love & Hip-Hop‘s Rasheeda is looking amazing after giving birth to a baby boy last year.
The reality star took to her Instagram account Friday to show off her #BounceBack progress with the photo above, writing:
Soooooo #babykarter is now 7 months old & I’m still working on my #bounceback the 1st pick is how I look today!! I still have several lbs to drop…. I’m about 200lbs in the middle picture (Whewwww Chile). The b4 pic was me b4 gettin preggos I was so in shape & small. I think ima keep a lil thickness tho but for now I wanted to show you guys my results so far. A decent diet nothing to crazy, exercise & a few stomach detox wraps is what I’ve been doing ohh & lots of water!! #grindlife#teamgetfit #thebouncebackisreal #workoutflow#teamstaymotivated
I don’t know about you, but I’m motivated and I didn’t even have a baby! The best thing about Rasheeda’s pic is that her progress is realistic. These days women, particularly famous women, are expected to snap back within a months, sometimes even weeks, of giving birth. To go from 200 pounds to the size she is today is an amazing feat for Rasheeda and I’m willing to be she’ll maintain her get it right get it tight figure quite well from here on out. What do you think? Check out another pic of Rasheeda in workout mode on the next page.
Before all hell broke loose at the opening of Stevie J and Benzino’s restaurant, “Sleazy & Zino Bistro & Bar,” The Jasmine Brand got a chance to speak with Kirk Frost about a couple of things, mostly focusing on his indiscretions last season and the way he embarrassed himself and his family stepping out on Rasheeda. While there are plenty of people who find Kirk vile, as one of three married couples, and the least dysfunctional, in the whole “Love and Hip Hop” franchise, there are folks who want them to work it out. And it seems that that’s what he and Rasheeda are attempting to do. See what he had to say.
Jasmine Brand: What was the lesson you learned from your situation on the last season of “Love and Hip Hop Atlanta”?
Kirk Frost: The lesson I learned was don’t try to prove a point to your wife and do dumb sh*t.
JB: Will we be witnessing that same type of drama this time around?
KF: Nah man. I’m trying to get on the right page. I want to get to a point where I can have Rasheeda back as a business partner, as a friend, as a wife, as a husband to her, and being a good guy and being a good father. I mean…I’m not perfect but I’m just hoping that she can get past it.
You can check out the rest of his interview over at The Jasmine Brand.
And in other Kirk and Rasheeda news, from the looks of both of their Instagram pages, the couple will appear on the cover of the March issue of Sister 2 Sister Magazine. Look at that playful side eye she’s giving him! She jokes but it’s clear these two are staying together, if they ever broke up in the first place.
Hip-hop is still a young artform, which means there is still a long way to go when it comes to giving respect where it is due. The women of hip-hop on the mic, in the studio, writing bars and battle rapping often don’t get the respect and recognition they deserve, so we decided to spotlight 15 women who’ve contributed to hip-hop in big ways.
Yo-Yo did her thing in the ’90s when she was featured on Ice Cube’s AmeriKKKa’s Most Wanted album for “It’s a Man’s World.” Her debut album Make Way for the Motherlode in 1990 gained popularity with the single “You Can’t Play with My Yo-Yo.” Although she didn’t receive mainstream success she continued to release albums that were authentic and true hip-hop. In 1992 she released her second album, Black Pearl that had a positive message which clashed with the current sound of gangsta rap. She went on to release three other albums and her single “Can’t Play With My Yo-Yo” was ranked number 92 on VH1′s 100 Greatest Hip-Hop Songs.
Will Kirk Frost ever be able to live down his deplorable behavior during the last season of “Love and Hip Hop Atlanta”? In the eyes of most viewers probably not. After all, Kirk accused Rasheeda of cheating on him, asked her to get an abortion and then gave the appearance and said he went out and slept with some randoms at a cabin party hosted by Benzino and Bobby V–of all people.
I mean there is a lot of mess here. A lot. And even though it seems that Kirk and Rasheeda have moved past it, “Love and Hip Hop” fans aren’t so quick to forgive.
Recently Kirk posted a picture of their son Karter on Instagram with the following caption.
So precious right?! But a few people went in. One user, in particular, had this to say:
I mean… she ain’t never lied. Whether Kirk got a nice check from Mona for acting out on television or not, the fact does remain that Baby Karter will one day be able to see this footage. And if he doesn’t actually see it, I’m sure the kids at school will let him know about his father’s wayward actions soon enough. Just take a look at what Peter Gunz’ daughters are going through. I understand sometimes you have to get grimy to feed your kids but potentially injuring their psyches in the process surely doesn’t sit right with a lot of people.
And yet there were others on Instagram who came to Kirk’s defense. They argued that every marriage goes through trials and that if his wife was able to forgive him, it’s really not our place to take every picture of his son as a chance to berate him for his past decisions.
That’s true too.
Personally, I would never go out of my way to follow Kirk on Instagram, much less leave a comment trying to scold him. But I’m not gon’ front. Every time I see him post a picture of his son, I do think of the fact that he dogged his mother out on national television and asked her to abort what would become an adorable baby boy. And that’s sad. You know what they say, “for the love of money…”
Anyway, what do you make of all this? Is it time we stop rubbing Kirk’s nose in his past, well documented dirt?
Despite getting off to a rocky start after announcing that she was expecting another child, Love & Hip Hop Atlanta star Rasheeda says that her husband and manager, Kirk Frost, is an amazing father. In an interview with Mara the Hip Hop Sociliate, the entrepreneur opened up about her new love baby Karter, the status of her marriage and major changes being made to the Love & Hip Hop franchise.
On baby Karter:
“He’s great, he’s absolutely great! He’s just a handsome little angel. Of course you know the first month – we haven’t reached our first month yet – but yeah, it’s rough. It’s every 3 hours. Doesn’t matter the time. Twelve midnight, three in the morning, six, nine, twelve, it’s no joke.”
On Kirk’s daddy skills:
“He’s actually just amazing to be honest with you. He’s just been a great father, he’s been, you know, allowing me to get my rest as much as possible, and regardless to the fact that you can’t get past the crying that you hear from the baby, but he’s been really, really great. You know he’s always been a good father regardless of how it looked on television as far as the things he said about ‘I’m tired of raising kids,’ and whatnot, you know. He has four adult children, you know. Over 18 [years old] kids that he was more so speaking about, but as far as him in Karter’s life, he’s just been 100% just doing his damn thing.”
On her relationship with Kirk:
“I mean you just take it one day at a time, and the main thing is just being parents number one, and then just continuing to grow our friendship, and to try to get back in a place. But you just don’t rush things, you just take one day at a time and just keep it moving.”
On Mona Scott-Young expanding Love & Hip Hop to other cities:
“I heard all of that, and I’m like, ‘okay, I see they looking to maybe milk the cow,’ and hopefully they making the right decision on that. All I know is Love & Hip-Hop: Atlantais Atlanta, and I don’t know about the rest of them places, but we got that thing on lock over here. That’s all I can say.”
On rumored changes being made to the LHHATL cast:
“Well you can’t even believe everything that you hear, but you never really know. I will tell you it’s going to be some changes, but you know, you’ll just have to see what the real deal is because every time I turn around, there’s somebody that they’re claiming is going to be on here, somebody that quote, allegedly done got ‘the boot’, you know. And don’t nobody know what the hell they be talking about until them credits roll, ‘This is the Life’ start playing, and the show airs. Other than that, just be ready to see what goes on for [season] 3 because you never know.”
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.
