The latest trailer for the new season of Love and Hip Hop Atlanta has been released, and there is a whole lot of mess going on, as usual. Stevie J and Faith Evans are married, and he had his daughter meet the singer before Mimi Faust, which she’s pissed about. Karlie Redd is newly engaged, but has some woman on her tail threatening her relationship by claiming that Karlie was a player in a threesome she allegedly keeps denying. Mama Dee has a new nemesis aiming for her castle. Moniece Slaughter is switching from Hollywood to Atlanta to date a fresh-from-prison Scrapp. Sierra is trying to get Tokyo Vanity to lose some weight, and Spice, well, we know she had that whole faux bleaching scandal. It seems there’s a lot to come this season.
Randomly though, what stuck out most to me from a nearly six-minute trailer was just a few seconds of tea from Rasheeda and Kirk Frost.
While they’re trying to continue to push this whole story line surrounding Kirk, his alleged son Kannon and the drama with his son’s mother, Jasmine, we were most taken aback by a revelation about the LHHATL couple’s marriage. We know Kirk stepped out of the relationship quite a few times, but who knew Rasheeda may have dipped her toe in other ponds as well?
“I ain’t always been perfect,” Rasheeda shared in a scene from the trailer. “We’ve had infidelities from both sides.”
This is the first time the rapper and entrepreneur has talked about doing any of the cheating in her relationship. She has, however, been open in the past about Kirk’s misdeeds, which the world has seen and knows the effects of. While doing so, she may have actually alluded to her own infidelity.
“I know people who would’ve left and I know people who have been through way, way worse and stayed and have overcome their obstacles. Those are the things you look at and pray about within yourself,” she told HelloBeautiful about forgiving him for cheating. “The thing is, when you guys see two minutes of some things that are going on in a relationship, not the whole aspect, people make mistakes and bad things happen. I make mistakes, he makes mistakes. I feel like sometimes when certain mistakes and things happen, sometimes you have to step back and you have to say, OK, let me reevaluate this situation. That doesn’t always mean divorce. It may mean reevaluate to make a person understand what they have, don’t have.”
Could that explain why they’ve managed to stay together and make it work despite so much drama? We’ll have to tune in to find out the truth. Check out the supertrailer for Season 8 of Love and Hip Hop Atlanta below, see what Rasheeda said about their infidelity at the 4:50 mark, and watch the new season when it premieres on Monday, March 25 at 8/7c.
