Are You Here For The Coupling Of Faith Evans And Stevie J?

You might have heard the buzz about town. Faith Evans and Stevie J. are an item these days. I didn’t want to believe it either. But when I read some of the posts, complete with the two musical legends pictures together, I had to accept the fact that it might be so.

The pictures themselves look relatively innocent. I mean, Stevie J is a born flirt. So even though I did notice that the two were spending a lot of time together, I didn’t think much of it.

But, as is generally the case with Instagram, the story is often in the captions. And while Faith has been captioning her images in a very nondescript way, Stevie J has been doing the complete opposite.

Here’s one of Faith’s pictures.

This particular one is a bit more telling.

And what had happened was… #BadBoyFamilyReunionTour #teamfizzy #teamprolific

And then Stevie J nailed it home.

I brag different!

Honestly, I’m not really here for this and certainly can’t understand it. I mean Faith is too grown with one too many bad relationships and too many children to be playing around. What is going on? In posing this question to the universe, one of my coworkers suggested that perhaps this relationship is a ploy to get on “Love and Hip Hop.” After all, Stevie J is making thousands per episode. And while I stopped watching the show years ago, I might tune in to see Stevie trying to date Faith with Mimi and Joseline in each of his ears.

Shortly after announcing that Stevie J and Joseline Hernandez would be heading to California for their new spinoff, “Stevie & Joseline,” the network released a brief teaser video, which let fans know that they’re going to be in for quite a ride when the series premieres this winter.

Apparently, the couple is picking up where they left off on “Love & Hip Hop Atlanta” with their relationship still sort of on the rocks. As previously reported, the series follows the couple after their move to Los Angeles as they attempt to chase “their dreams of superstardom.”

“In a summer where the film ‘Straight Outta Compton’ went straight to No. 1, Taylor Swift’s collaboration with Kendrick Lamar topped the Billboard charts and our own ‘Love & Hip Hop: Atlanta’ ranked as the No. 1 reality show on cable, hip-hop’s dominance of pop culture was confirmed yet again,” said Susan Levison, VH1’s EVP of original programming and production. “We’re excited to fuel our audience’s continued fascination with all things hip-hop by extending the storylines of some of their favorite ‘Love & Hip Hop’ cast members.”

The inevitable is upon us.

Since season one of “Love & Hip Hop Atlanta,” most fans knew that Joseline Hernandez would earn a spin-off series sooner or later. Apparently, that moment has arrived.

According to Variety, VH1 recently greenlit a new series, “Stevie & Joseline,” starring the self-proclaimed Puerto Rican Princess and her hit-making “husband” Steven Jordan.

The eight-episode half-hour series will follow the amusing couple as they venture to Hollywood to pursue “their dreams of superstardom,” which would explain all of Stevie’s talk about moving to California this past season.

Of course, Monami Entertainment is producing the series. Mona Scott-Young, Stephanie R. Gayle, Toby Barraud, Stefan Springman, Mala Chapple, Carmen Mitcho, Lashan Browning, Susan Levison, Nina L. Diaz, Ken Martinez and Vivian Gomez are all serving as executive producers.

“In a summer where the film ‘Straight Outta Compton’ went straight to No. 1, Taylor Swift’s collaboration with Kendrick Lamar topped the Billboard charts and our own ‘Love & Hip Hop: Atlanta’ ranked as the No. 1 reality show on cable, hip-hop’s dominance of pop culture was confirmed yet again,” said Susan Levison, VH1’s EVP of original programming and production. “We’re excited to fuel our audience’s continued fascination with all things hip-hop by extending the storylines of some of their favorite ‘Love & Hip Hop’ cast members.”

Prepare for the foolishness, chile. Something tells us this show is going to be like most train wrecks that are difficult to watch, but impossible to look away from.

Joseline Hernandez Releases New Song "Stingy With My Kutty Kat"

When you talk about Stevie J and Joseline, music is one of the last things that comes to mind. The reality show couple’s shenanigans consistently overshadow the fact that Joseline is an aspiring artist and Stevie J is a legendary producer, fallen from the limelight.

But, in between rehab, fighting other people and each other, Joseline and Stevie J managed to not only release a song but the visuals for the little ditty as well.

It’s called “Stingy With My Kutty Kat,” and if the title is not of an indication, it’s about how Joseline shuts down all the boys who come to the yard because she’s…stingy when it comes to sharing her vagina.

Lyrics include verses like:

This for all my skeezers

If they please us, 

Blow on their cock

Like you blowing on reefer

or this is what it sounded like to me. Y’all know Joseline’s accent is on some other stuff.

I could front and play like the song is utter trash but I won’t lie, it’s catchy as hell. Don’t be surprised if you hear it in the club this summer.

Catch out the NSFW video below and let us know…pass or play?

If you’re like me, you may be on the fence about whether or not you’re going to indulge in the guilty pleasure that is “Love and Hip Hop Atlanta.” Lord knows, with constant drama and very little resolution, the show takes a lot out of you.

Maybe VH1 is getting the sense that folks are tired out here. So they’re trying to sweeten the deal. Today, the network released a six minute trailer from the season.

Joseline and Stevie are in therapy dealing with their issues. We’re going to watch Stevie in rehab Nikko is out here acting like a terrorist. He literally told Stevie, “Your daughter gon’ call me Daddy.” And Momma Dee is reuniting with one of her ex husbands. Then Nikko’s wife is all up in Mimi’s face causing drama. And as if that weren’t enough Rasheeda and Kirk are supposedly having additional marital issues, with Kirk renting an apartment in his wife’s name.

It’s a lot. Far too much than we could include in a text recap.

Just watch the video and discuss below.

Joseline Hernandez Shares How Much Of Love And Hip Hop Is Real And How Much Is Fake: “It’s A Lot Of Acting”

March 11th, 2015 - By Victoria Uwumarogie

If you watched the most recent “Love and Hip Hop Atlanta” reunion, I’m sure you remember that the finale made headlines because Joseline Hernandez decided to get up from her seat and lay hands on just about any and everyone she didn’t like. The original target of her madness though, was Althea Eaton, the fiancée of Benzino. Interesting enough, as we also can all remember, Eaton and Benzino were kicked off the show after the brawl–not Hernandez and her man, Stevie J, who jumped up to fight first.

Feeling some type of way, which is understandable, Eaton decided to sue Hernandez (interesting that she didn’t sue those behind the show though). She alleges that Hernandez got high on cocaine and then attacked her while under the influence. As we previously told you:

In the suit, Althea alleges that several eyewitnesses saw Joseline smoking crack out of a pipe backstage during the taping. She also argues that her sworn enemy was high when she attacked her. Considering that Joseline was caught on film punching a sitting Althea in the face, it will be quite interesting to hear what her defense will be. Interestingly, VH1, Viacom and Monami Productions were not mentioned in the suit, which makes Benzino’s previous claim that the fight was staged look a bit shaky.

But it looks like Eaton is the only one from the cast in the dark about whether the fight was real or staged. As part of her suit, Eaton’s lawyer wanted to know if Hernandez fought her client because she wanted to, or if producers instructed her to try and fight Eaton–and she just took it to the next level.

In the taped deposition with Hernandez, obtained by TMZ, she was asked the question, but she didn’t give a straightforward answer. Instead, she reminded everyone of what I think we already knew: There isn’t much reality in reality television.

“Well with reality TV, it’s mostly–it’s called reality, but it’s a lot of acting in the reality world. I say that because a lot of the girls that’s on the show, they act. It’s a lot of acting in a reality TV show, whether it’s “Love and Hip Hop” or another show.”

She went on to say that despite often being so proud to let folks know “I’m Joseline Hernandez, baby” the show doesn’t really show who she truly is.

“I mean, the reality TV show showcases a lot of who we are NOT. I say that because it’s just like, you never know what happens in reality TV. They’ll showcase your music, they’ll showcase certain things, but that’s not who Joseline Hernandez is…”

As I said, she didn’t give a straightforward answer to whether or not her fight with Eaton was encouraged or not, but considering how wild she looked during the three different fights she started within a span of 15 minutes, I would say that was ALL the Puerto Rican princess, honey.

Stevie J Takes To Social Media To Ask 50 Cent For A Job On “Power”

Could you see Stevie J and his infamous rat face on “Power”? The reality star and musician is quite the character, so why not?

Stevie seems serious about wanting an opportunity to test his acting skills out on the hit Starz show. Unfortunately, he’s not as serious when it comes to the ways he’s going about campaigning for a role on the program.

Baller Alert caught the “Love and Hip Hop Atlanta” star trying to holler at 50 Cent through his Instagram page, inquiring about an opportunity to be a guest on “Power.” Of course, 50 is both a producer and a star on the show (he plays Kanan), so Stevie hit up the rapper’s comment section to ask that 50 hook him up:

Well, you know what they say: “Closed mouths don’t get fed.” And while most would say an email or a phone call is the best way to go, since 50 Cent is often found clapping back at people talking slick on his Instagram page, I have a feeling he will see it…

But if Stevie can get a small guest role on the show, he has to bring Joseline along to partake in the “shenanigans.” Now THAT would be worth watching. We’ll see if Stevie’s wish was granted when the new season premieres this June.

Stevie J Indicted For Owing Over $1 Million In Child Support

It looks like that impending million dollar child support case has finally come around to bite Stevie J in the rear end. In 2013, we told you that the “Love & Hip Hop Atlanta” star owed $1,107,412 to his ex, Carol Antoinette Bennett, in unpaid child support.

The following June he was arrested in relation to the unpaid balance. Apparently, he didn’t comply with the terms of his release because we’re now hearing that the producer-turned-reality star has been formally indicted by a grand jury; however, he won’t be arraigned in New York City until February 10. According to TMZ, he’s in the middle of serving out a 30-day rehab stint, which was imposed after he repeatedly violated probation by testing positive for marijuana and cocaine.

“My kids are in high school. My daughter just started high school so we’re preparing for college,” Bennett said in 2013. “It’s time for saving. We have to make sure that they’re not just prepared academically. We have to make sure they’re prepared financially as well. We had an agreement in the child support order that he would provide insurance. But nothing [has] been covered by Stevie for the last twelve or thirteen years.”

As for people who believe that she’s only going after Stevie because he has reemerged in the entertainment world, Bennett had this to say:

“That’s the misconception. My kids are 14 and 16. He has not made a voluntary payment in years. There’s a court order in place to pay x amount per month. If you don’t pay that, even if you can come close, it technically didn’t occur. He’s missed 168 payments. The reason why, this (is) my own speculation, because he’s been able to get away with it, why not keep doing it? Where’s the enforcement at? Okay, he doesn’t have a passport. He still can live; he’s just not going out of the country. It’s just being negligent and not taking on responsibility for your kids, but he doesn’t mind doing it for any other women.”

Sounds like it’s time for Stevie to hit up Iyanla to find out about fixing his life because it’s clearly in shambles at this point.

Stevie J Reportedly Ordered To Spend 30 Days In Rehab After Failing 10 Drug Tests Due To Cocaine And Weed In His System

Even when the cameras aren’t rolling, Stevie J consistently finds himself in some drama.

According to the New York Post and the AP, he’s been ordered to spend 30 days in rehab after failing not just a few drug tests, but 10 since he was initially arrested for his failure to pay $1.1 million in back child support for two of his kids, who reside in Pennsylvania. Stevie J has been out on bail trying to get that situation taken care of.

Stevie J, born Steven Jordan, was ordered to submit to random drug tests as part of the terms of his release, and in 10 urine samples taken from June up until this month, Jordan was caught with weed and cocaine in his system. Judge Andrew Peck just ordered Jordan to rehab to deal with his 0bvious drug habit, which his lawyer tried to argue against. According to attorney Michael Bellinger, if Jordan was sent to rehab, he wouldn’t be able to pay down his debts because he wouldn’t be able to work (Jordan is still out here making music when he’s not filming “LHHATL”). But Judge Peck said in court that at this point, Jordan is pretty lucky that he hasn’t been put in jail for violating the terms of his $25,000 bond agreement.

It’s clear that it’s time for him to sit down somewhere and deal with his drug abuse problems before things get any worse than they already are.
