The “Love & Hip Hop” series has left New York and taken it’s ratchetness down south to Hotlanta and season four is too hot to handle! Tonight’s season opener kicks off with Stevie J and Mimi Faust sitting down to clear the air following the violent reunion where Joseline attacked everybody! Stevie wants to patch things up with his baby mama and “bring his family together” but Mimi is skeptical of Joseline’s violent tendencies.
Enter the new girl. We got new blood on the scene, stripper extraordinaire, Jessica Dime. Tonight is her finale performance at the world renowned ‘King of Diamonds’ Strip Club in Miami. Jessica is hanging up her 10 inch pleasure pumps and trading in her stripper pole for a new life. In attendance for her farewell striptease are Karlie Redd and Dawn. Jessica is leaving the pole behind for a fresh start in Atlanta, I assume one that does not involve people throwing dollar bills on her. She tells the ladies that she and Joseline go way back but lately Joseline doesn’t know she exist. Dawn explains that Joseline is mad because Dime is making the move to change her life like Joseline did and that upsets Joseline.
Back in the A, Mama Dee is the queen of her throne! The Queen just dropped her new single, “I Deserve,” the song is a hit and Mama Dee couldn’t be more happier. Erica drops in on Mama Dee backstage at her performance and tells her that Lil’ Scrappy hasn’t been paying his child support. Mama Dee is shock and quickly blames Scrappy’s girlfriend, Da Bambi, as the person responsible for her son’s negligence. But Mama Dee doesn’t allow the news stop her from singing her heart out to her adoring fans. When her performance ends, Erica spots Scrappy and Da Bambi and makes a b-line for the door. Mama Dee addresses the issue with Scrappy and Da Bambi who quickly dismiss Erica’s claims.
Mimi, Rasheeda, Ariane, Erica and Karlie Redd enjoy a painting class and catch-up about the sh*t show called a reunion. They all agree Joseline is a drunk junkie spiraling out of control. Mimi brings the women up to speed on her new artist management company and working with Stevie J. Mimi explains it’s strictly business and she no longer has feelings for Stevie (yeah right). Then Erica chimes in about her deadbeat baby daddy child support drama. Scrappy is $50k behind and she’s ready to take him to court. Rasheeda jumps in and gushes about how great life is in the Frost household. Her and Kirk are building a new
storyline house blah…blah…blah! Karlie informs the group about Joseline’s friend, Jessica Dime moving to the ATL but none of them are moved by the announcement.
Margeaux is Nikko’s WIFE! Yes, wife! We finally meet the mystery wife from last season. They meet in Prospect Park, Brooklyn to discuss the main reason their marriage fell apart…the scandalous sex tape. The good ole sex tape ruined their marriage. Go figure?
They have an open marriage but Nikko neglected to inform her about this little sex tape. That omission was the final straw for Margeaux and drove them to separate. Nikko reveals to her the sex tape was strictly a business arrangement that both parties involved agreed to make. Big Shocker….NOT! Margeaux lives in New York and Nikko wants her to move to Atlanta to reset their relationship. She’s apprehensive since her life is in New York and she doesn’t have any friends or family in Atlanta.
Heading back to to Atlanta, Mimi invites Stevie J to a performance of an artist she’s managing, Tiffany Foxx, but Sleazo shows up and turns up! Karlie and Rasheeda laugh off Stevie’s outburst but Mimi overreacts and the two get into a heated shouting match. Sleazo, drink in hand…storms out!
Kirk Frost has an apartment where he conducts “business.” He’s signed a new artist, Ashley Nicole and she meets him at his office/apartment. The office/apartment has a bedroom with a king size bed decorated with a portrait of Rasheeda and Kirk in the room. In his Talking Head, Kirk says Rasheeda hasn’t met his new artist, Ashley Nicole and the longer he waits to introduce them the more suspicious she’ll become. He’s also keeping his wife in the dark about his office/apartment. Before Ashley leaves she sits on the bed, grabs Kirk, wraps her arms around him, squeezes tightly and blows air kisses. Something tells me that Rasheeda will be waiting at the doe! *Head tilt*
Mimi and Nikko haven’t spoken in months but meet up. They’re no longer a couple but have unfinished business to tend to. Mimi is writing a book and signed a contract with Nikko giving him 25% of the proceeds and everything related to the book. The former love birds and porn co-stars argue over the 25%. Mimi vows she’s not giving Nikko a red cent and Nikko reminds her she doesn’t have a choice! He informs her she signed on the dotted line therefore the deal is a DONE! Mimi must have smoked some of Joseline’s stash when she signed that contract. Who would sign 25% of anything over to this clown?
Over at the Frost compound, business is BOOMING! Rasheeda’s numerous businesses have blown up and she’s bursting at the seams for more room. Kirk and adorable baby Karter enter the room. Rasheeda explains to Kirk she needs more space. She wants to move her operation out of cramp quarters and into a storefront. Kirk disagrees and wants her to stay put (he’s paying expensive rent for his apartment/office) to save money. Rasheeda keeps pushing the issue and Kirk changes the conversation to his new artist, Ashley Nicole.
Next, Stevie visits Mimi at her house. Mimi immediately confronts Stevie about his drunken antics at her artist showcase. Stevie dances around the issue and Mimi hits him with the rumors circulating about his drug use. The rumors are all over the blogs and everyone is talking about the druggie he’s turned into. Stevie responds with the classic abuser line, “I have the problem under control” but Mimi feels otherwise. She then continues to hammer him with possible reasons for his alleged drug use. Mimi thinks Joseline is the root of the problem and asks about her whereabouts. Stevie is vague and explains she’s “away getting herself together” (The tea is Joseline was suspended for 4 episodes for the reunion fight). The convo switches gears and Mimi tells Stevie about her jacked up 25% deal with Nikko. This gets Stevie riled up and he makes it clear, Nikko will NOT profit off his family.
Stevie, acting on his conversation with Mimi, pays Nikko a parking lot visit (You know this is not going to end well). The men approach each other and you can cut the tension with a knife. Nikko tells Stevie he wants $2 million to end the contract and Stevie is not having none of it. Nikko blabs on about the deal he made and how it benefits Stevie’s daughter. Nikko also takes a jab at pimping Mimi out in the sex tape. This pisses Stevie off and all hell breaks loose. Stevie charges Nikko!!
Stay tuned for more of the “Love and Hip Hop Atlanta” soap opera! See you next week.
