So on next week’s episode of “Love & Hip Hop Atlanta,” viewers will witness Mimi Faust confess to what we knew all long: her sex tape was filmed by a camera crew—or at least a third person. In a clip from the upcoming episode, Mimi is at a restaurant with her BFF Arianne and Erica Dixon, when they begin to question her about the infamous sex tape again.
“What about the production of that tape though?” Arianne asked. “Cuz that was just not no f—ing tape.”
“It wasn’t a homemade tape,” Erica chimed in.
“The initial tape was homemade,” Mimi stated.
Her reality TV friends quickly read between the lines and realized that what Mimi was actually saying is that the original tape is not the one that was released by Vivid.
“The initial tape,” Arianne repeated. “Oh wait, you had multiple tapes!”
“Yes, Mimi replied. “The company said, ‘We don’t have enough footage,’ because it has to be a certain amount of footage for the tape to sell.”
To make the tape longer, Mimi says she and Nikko got together and filmed additional footage. As for why she didn’t just reveal all of this when word of her sex tape first got out, Mimi had this to say:
“I didn’t feel like I needed to divulge all of that information.”
I can’t say that I’m surprised by this revelation. From the time that the first clip of Mimi’s tape was released, it was apparent that this was somewhat of an orchestrated production. However, this sort of pokes a hole in her claims that Vivid had gotten their hands on the tape and were going to release it whether she and Nikko signed on to work with them or not.
Anyway, watch a clip from her confession below. Thoughts?
