Mimi Has A Surprisingly Genius Plan For The Life Partner Ring Stevie J Bought Her

You all saw Stevie J’s trifling #LifePartnerGang proposal on the season finale of “Love & Hip-Hop Atlanta” Tuesday, right? Basically the sleazy music producer got on one knee and proposed to Joseline and then told Mimi he didn’t want to leave her out and offered her a “life partner” ring as well.

As ridiculous as the notion seemed, Mimi has been known to fall for less so we’ve all been on pins and needles wondering what exactly his ex-girlfriend and mother of his child plans to do with this token of affection. Surprisingly, she has a pretty good idea that we’re not mad at. She told VH1′s blog:

“I’m going to pawn it and put it down for my daughter’s tuition for school. That’s exactly what I’m going to do. This ring can kiss my a** and so can he. He bought us the same f***ing ring!”

Who is a life partner? In his psychotic mind we’re life partners. Oh, and? He went to Jared. She went to Cartier, he went to Jared. It’s a joke.”

What’s also a joke is the fact that Mimi is wearing the obviously too small ring — which she put on her index finger during the last episode — on her second toe.

Unlike Joseline who was hysterically crying during Stevie’s life gang partner proposal, Mimi was laughing hysterically at the foolishness that was unfolding before her eyes. She told VH1:

“I was dying laughing because she thought ‘Oh, he’s proposing to me in front of her, he’s showing me he loves me,’ and then he turns around and gives me [a ring] too.

“F***her. And f*** her again. F*** HER. That insensitive-a** b**** can suck a d***. I don’t like her, she’s a f***ing a**hole, she means me no f***ing good, f***her.”

Well, that about sums it up, I suppose.

What do you think of Mimi’s plan to pawn the ring for her daughter’s

Bobbi Kristina Is Engaged To Nick Gordon… Yes, AGAIN.

So it seems the only daughter of the late Whitney Houston has rekindled her relationship with her informally adopted brother-turned-boyfriend Nick Gordon. During a beach vacay of some sort, Bobbi Kristina posted photos of the seemingly happy couple on the boardwalk with a very visible rock on her fourth finger, left hand. Oh and then there was this:


The couple had first announced their engagement to the rest of the Houston family during the taping of their short-lived Lifetime reality series “The Houstons: On Our Own” to which the family showed serious disapproval.

Viewers didn’t think it was such a great idea, calling the relationship “incestuous,” as Whitney Houston had informally adopted Gordon when he was 12 years old. Not only that, but the very apathetic way in which Gordon regarded Bobbi Kristina throughout the series gave many onlookers pause as they believed it foreshadowed a repeat destructive pattern that the young Houston’s mother and father, Bobbi Brown displayed throughout their relationship.

Family and friends have also been very concerned for Bobbi Kristina’s well-being since her mother passed away a year ago. Tyler Perry even said in an interview with Oprah that he felt a responsibility to do what he could to help the child as he had been great friends with Whitney Houston. He cast Bobbi Kristina in a small role in his TBS comedy, “For Better or For Worse” in which she didn’t do a bad job.

Does Bobbi Kristina seem happy? Yes… Maybe. Pictures can tell any story we want them to. It does seem that due to the very volatile nature of her life for the past few years that she should take it slowly. They are essentially just kids. What’s the rush?

Do you think these two should be married?

Last night, VH1 and Mona Scott-Young held a premiere screening of “Love & Hip-Hop New York” and we were there to catch all the ratchetness as it unfolded. I wish I could say some of the things we witnessed was just for the cameras but it wasn’t — most times they weren’t even rolling. That means what you see of these people when the third season premieres Monday night at 8pm is absolutely who they are in real-life — skin-tight dresses, drunken slurs, ragged weaves, stank attitudes and all. Though next week we’ll show you all our exclusive one-on-one chats with the cast members, we couldn’t wait to bust out the classic moments and insider info we peeped last night. Oh and here’s the super trailer in case you need a debriefing before you dig in. Happy ratchetry!

You’ve been with your man for a couple of years now, and perhaps the topic of marriage has crept into the conversation a time or two. He’s stated he wants to get married (to you), and you’re both on the same page, but you have no idea when the proposal is coming…if at all. While some men avoid the “M” word like the plague, others are simply waiting for the right time to pop the question. After all, this will probably be the most important question he asks in his life, so he’ll want to make sure he’s ready and that the timing is right. If you think he’s acting weird, or that he might not ever propose at all, let’s try to decipher his behavior by finding clues that he’s finally going to put a ring on it.

Say what you want about Amber Rose, Wiz Khalifa is making an honest woman out of Kanye’s old girl. Rumors about these two being engaged and even married have made their way through the blogosphere plenty of times, but today Wiz gave the official word that he put a ring on it.

Less than an hour ago, Wiz tweeted “She said Yes!!!” along with an instagram of Amber Rose’s left hand sporting a nice-sized rock on her ring finger. These two have been tonguing each other down in public for long enough that most of us we saw this coming—sorta kinda.

There’s no telling what these young lovebirds have in store for the wedding ceremony, but best wishes to them as they prepare to jump the broom! Is it safe to assume Ye’s gonna put his reaction in a song?

Just Kidding…Halle’s Not Getting Married

Somebody’s got some ‘splainin to do because according to TMZ, everybody jumped the gun about Halle Berry getting married to French actor Oliver Martinez.

The emerald ring she’s been wearing on her ring finger is the problem. Oliver bought it for Halle, but according to sources, it is by no means a symbol of their engagement. (Sigh.)

That doesn’t mean it could never happen. The sources added that Halle and Olivier are in a “committed relationship” and marriage “could be in the cards,” but as of right now? It ain’t happenin’. Let’s not forget US Magazine had their own sources who said the couple was going to make it official, though, so let’s see who gets the final word.  As long as they’re happy and still together that’s all that really matters.

Are you hoping Halle and Oliver tie the knot?
