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.
It’s been a rough season for reality TV couple Rasheeda and Kirk Frost. Infidelity, unwanted pregnancies and the inability to see eye-to-eye are issues that can severely damage even the strongest of marriages. Thankfully, it appears that the pair were able to weather the storm. Yesterday, we told you that Love & Hip Hop Atlanta star were finally able to bring their new baby boy, Karter, home from the hospital. Today, they opened up in an interview with Hip Hop Weekly, expressing that their new bundle has brought so much joy to their family. They also shared how they plan to take things one day at time in regard to their marital problems.
Kirk on being there for baby Karter’s birth:
“Yes. I was there from the very beginning. Rasheeda woke up one morning and said, “Oh, it’s time.” She just knew. She was cramping, etc. and she said, “it’s time to go.” I wasn’t nervous. It’s just that the baby came ahead of the due date, September 6, so we weren’t totally ready. We still had to put the bed together, etc. and get organized, but now, I’m excited.”
Kirk on airing out their dirty laundry on national television:
“A lot of people try to hide things and we chose not to do it. We were 100 percent real with it and let it be what it is. I think that people have to see me as a husband and a manager and a lot of them only see the relationship side. I did say the things and they were outrageous but at the end of the day it’s in God’s hands and He knows what’s best.”
Rasheeda on working through their marital issues:
“It’s an everyday thing. It’s a work in progress. When the child comes into play, it’s a feeling you can’t explain. Although a lot of things had been shown and seen, I already knew that when it comes to be a father, this would be a role that he’s always known to play. Things were put into perspective on television that he was not a good father but he’s a great father and my older son Kai is extremely happy to have this little brother. It’s a good time for us and I don’t want anything to get on my nerves.”
It’s great to see that the two are attempting to mend the broken fences in their marriage. The road to reconciliation can sometimes be a lengthy one, but at least they’re willing to give it a shot.

Last week we reported Rasheeda and Kirk from “Love & Hip-Hop Atlanta” welcomed their baby boy Karter into their family. We’re not sure what the couple’s relationship status is after the tumultuous last season of the reality show, but by the looks of their photos they seem to handling co-parenting well.
Check out pics of them leaving the hospital with Karter!
During this past season of Love & Hip Hop Atlanta, we witnessed the drama surrounding reality star Rasheeda’s unexpected pregnancy. It’s been a long road filled with infidelity, requested paternity tests and talk of divorce. But, it appears that she and her hubby have embarked on the path to reconciliation as they prepare for the upcoming birth of their son Karter. This past weekend they celebrated their new bundle with a beautiful blue-themed baby shower, which was attended by fellow reality stars such as Phaedra Parks, Kandi Burrus, Erica Dixon and Toya Wright.
Peep the photos on the following pages.
And that’s all folks! Last night marked the season finale of Love and Hip Hop Atlanta, and boy did it go out with an embarrassing bang. Relationships ended for good, questions of engagement were answered, a cast member decided to leave Atlanta and by the end of it all, another was blocking punches. If you watched, you know the foolery I’m talking about. But if you didn’t, feel free to get filled in about what you missed. We have a feeling the reunion is going to be good!
Before we even jump into this, can we please all just take a minute and look at the picture in the bottom right hand corner? The scowl on Rasheeda’s mom’s face is something serious. She was not playing this day and I don’t quite blame her. After the way Kirk treated her daughter and the way he rode up to the house, popping wheelies like somebody was going to be excited to see his philandering behind was disgusting.
But instead of taking his punishment like a man and keeping quiet about it, Kirk posted the above photo on Instagram with this caption:
Somebody will be replacing this bike & I mean soon time is running out!
The message was followed by a couple of angry faces emojis and then a picture of a police officer. So we can assume that Kirk is going to report Mama Shirleen if she doesn’t pay for the damage she caused.
Ugh. Really, Kirk? Can’t you just take the L on this one? He should be really glad that it was his bike and not his life that he lost.
Honestly Shirleen doesn’t seem to be thinking about Kirk at all though.
In a recent interview with Vh1 Blog, she spoke about the incident and her newfound fame because of her being on the show.
I saw pictures of you on Instagram on a motorcycle. Since you ride, didn’t you feel a little bad wrecking Kirk’s bike?
No. His was just a dirt bike. It was a $7,000 dirt bike but still. I don’t know if I would have been able to do it to any of his other ones. I might have. No, I probably would have. It would have made me feel bad, but I woulda done it! Whatever got in my way, that’s for sure.
What’s your current situation with Kirk, are you guys speaking?
Noooo. Not really. For real, that’s just so disrespectful and I don’t like that. I can’t take the disrespect.
Well, I’m sure you’re gaining followers like crazy now.
Yes. Even at work, I was sitting at work today and a woman came up to my office and said “Put your name on this paper!” and I wrote my name and I said “For what?” and she said “You’re famous! Me and my husband was watching you last night! And now I got your autograph!” People at my salon that I’ve been doing for ten, twelve years ask me for my autograph. I’m like, you gotta be kiddin’ me! People are so serious, too. They just walk up to me — one woman said “My mom was like that, she spit in my husband’s face!” I was like “Oh my God!” I could go on with stories. But now everyone says “Don’t I know you from somewhere?” and I just tell them I have one of those familiar-looking faces. It is crazy, isn’t it?
Looks like she’s enjoying her 15 minutes. Do you think she should replace or repair Kirk’s bike?
You already know a hot mess of information awaits you so why not just get right into it? Here are the most interesting things that went down on last night’s episode of Love & Hip-Hop Atlanta.
Oh Kirk. Confused, misguided, I tell my wife to have an abortion on national TV, Kirk. On Friday, we finally got our one-on-one time with the arguably most-hated “Love & Hip-Hop Atlanta” cast member and all we really wanted to know was what the hell is going on with him this season. Of course, we asked that question a little more nicely, in the form of, are you embarrassed for yourself and your family because of the way you’ve been acting. Unfortunately, he gave us just the answer we’d expect from someone of his caliber. Check out our interview and what he had to say for himself and his behavior on LHHATL.
It’s almost the weekend and you know what that means? It’s time to get things Turnt Up, up in here.
And by Turnt Up, I mean that if I hear someone say Turnt Up one more got-damn time I will put on some Doc Martin boots, pick up a trashcan and get it Turnt Up through somebody’s plate glass window. Okay, I’m not going to do that. But I will be making really funny faces at you, which I hope will make you feel uncomfortable. So there!
For those unaware, Turnt Up is part of a long tradition in the black community of phrase shortening, where words are smooshed (see what I did there) together to make a new term. In this case, Turnt up is a shortened version of Turn It Up, which we know as another lame (mostly white boy) American colloquialism to describe the period when the energy of person or a space is about to go to the next level. The term Turnt Up has been around for quite a while, mostly used by blacks regionally in places in the South and out West of America. However as of late, Turnt Up has spread to other parts of America, in particularly in the most Northern of black enclaves where southern-rooted expressions are normally frowned upon. And this, I blame on Ciara.
Actually I don’t just blame Ciara (always blame the woman right?) as there were plenty of other artists prior to her – including Roscoe Dash, Talib Kweli, Yo Gotti among others – who were all about getting Turnt Up. But she had to get it Super Turnt Up. And we all know that adding “super” as a prefix to a word makes it infinitely far superior. So now you know folks have to top being “super” because there are levels to this -ish. And if you watched the last episode of “Love & Hip Hop: ATL” you realize that it reached it cataclysmic peak, where in one segment alone Turnt Up was used a total of 152-million times over the course of 1 minute and a half conversation. Who exactly was turnt up?
Well, Mimi was all about “speaking slowly and over-enunciating every syllable for unneeded emphasis-Turnt Up. K Michelle was extra loud and in need of Ritalin and a hug-Turnt Up. Ariane was “cough-cough, there’s something in my throat but it certainly ain’t a singing voice”-Turnt Up. Mama Dee was One Flew Over the Cuckoo Nest-Turnt Up. Joseline was representing hard for the Boriquas (because nothing said Puerto Rican more than that colorful the-Hell?-ensemble)-Turnt Up. Rasheeda: “If he said they turnt up and she said they turnt up then they turnt up…” was channeling Angela Basset in Waiting to Exhale but “I went to the bathroom at the part of the movie when she used the accelerant to light the fire”-Turnt Up. And Bambi the purveyor of Turnt Up groupie antics was all about “I’m going to have some Turnt Up on my Turnt Up with a side of Turnt Up and extra Turnt Up but please hold the Turnt Up“-Turnt Up. Basically, the whole damn cast is Turnt Up.
And like any good ear worm, it has clawed its way up through our eardrums and hatched in the brains of every single person in my timeline. Mothers and Facebook models; dads and deadbeats, teachers, lawyers, trashmen, and that guy, who you are not sure what he does but he always has money; they are all now Turnt Up. And they are doing it in the less likely Turnt Up times, events and places like “waiting on the bus, about to get Turnt Up if it don’t turn up soon” or “Just Turnt Up this baked macaroni and cheese with some sprinkled Parmesan cheese and bread crumbs…” or “PRAISING HIM UP IN THE FRONT ROW!!!!!!, listening to Pastor give a powerful word. #SaintsTurntUpAllTheWayForJesus.” Everybody is turnt up for everything except to vote; or to march for justice or to volunteer with children; or do some sort of social changing task, which might need some of that exuberant energy to complete.
Okay, I’m beginning to sound a lot like some of your mommas. But I seriously can’t wait for the day when the phrase Turnt Up wears out its welcome and goes off to colloquialism heaven with “Bling” and “Swag.” Perhaps old and mostly white middle America will get a hold of it and make it so lame that no one will want to say it again. Maybe one day soon, Kathie Lee will turn to Hoda and says, “…and next, you are going to want to stick around as we get Turnt Up in the kitchen with Emeril Lagasse, who will be making his Pop-A-Molly I’m Sweatin’ Spicy Shrimp and Andouille Over Charleston-Style Grits… Mmm, sounds wonderful Kathie. So Glad I woke up in my new Bugatti for this…”
