“Last night was like…it wasn’t turned up, Kirk. You broke the knob,” Benzino tells his friend in this week’s sneak peek of Love And Hip Hop Atlanta. We could make an obvious joke about the “knob” double entendre here but we won’t. Read more…
On The Gossip Game this season we learned all about the intense rivalry between legendary New York radio station Hot 97 and their younger, quickly ascending counterpart, Power 105. On the TV show, K.Foxx, with her job as a morning show co-host on HOT 97, was the face of the station and from jump she made it known that she didn’t cavort with the likes of co-star Angela Yee, of Power 105’s Breakfast Club. But things have changed since The Gossip Game ended, and K. Foxx found herself abruptly out of a job. She spoke to EBONY recently about her departure from the station — as always, she gets right to the point and has a new outlook on her old employer. Read more…
Last night on Twitter, the key dramatic players from this week’s Love And Hip Hop Atlanta were suspiciously silent. Rasheeda and Kirk didn’t make a peep in response to their compromised relationship (although Nicki Minaj made her opinion of the situation known). So we were left with the rest of the cast to comment on their own situations. In this group of the best tweets from last night, DJ Babey Drew defends his ego by swearing to us that he wasn’t jealous of Traci‘s new man (Seal’s illegitimate child, was it?), Momma Dee gets sad re-living the moment she dropped her baby off to jail, and Benzino…well, Benzino just blames his problems on Hennessey.
There’s always an amazing lineup of talent at the ESSENCE Festival, held annually in New Orleans, and this year the cast of Hollywood Exes will be taking the stage — coincidentally the very same weekend that their second season debuts.
The cast of the VH1 series will be appearing on several panels this Friday, July 5th, and there will also be an advance screening of the season premiere three days before the rest of the world gets to see it. The list of daytime events featuring the cast is below, and reality faves like Basketball Wives star Shaunie O’Neal, Kenya Moore, and Trina Braxton add to the killer lineup. (And just a heads up, the festival doesn’t stop there — you can also buy tickets to the amazing music performances featuring Beyonce, Maxwell, LL Cool J and more — at night at the Superdome.) Check out the daytime schedule of appearances Hollywood Exes appearances below, and tune in to the season premiere Monday night at 10pm ET/PT.

We learned two things last night: First, Nicki Minaj is a huge Love And Hip Hop Atlanta fan. And two, she will not tolerate a cheater. Nicki had no problem blasting Kirk for his hot tub antics (we know how she’d vote in our poll!) while she live-tweeted the show, calling him out for not sticking by Rasheeda and embarrassing her on national television. In case you missed Kirk’s exploits, watch him have his fun with the ladies in the clip above, and then read Nicki’s reaction tweets below. For the record, it looks like Kirk gave up his free pass, he and Rasheeda were spotted walking the BET Awards red carpet together on Sunday. Nicki, what do you have to say about that??

“In the next six months, if you don’t marry me, I’m going to start dating around…and you don’t want that,” Joseline says in this week’s installment of Check Yourself. This, after she’s already told Stevie she wants him to “put that ring in this ass.” Stevie though, is not prepared “to jump the broom at this particular moment,” and calls in his best Redd Foxx impression to illustrate his point.
We also hear from Mimi about the state of her relationship with K.Michelle, and she explains “K.Michelle loves me certain times. When she’s not going the f— off.” And as for how Mimi feels about Nikko now…
As part of this season’s Love And Hip Hop Atlanta reunion, we want to know what’s on your mind. The reunion won’t be airing until August but now’s the time to ask this cast anything you want to know about them in the comments! Does Kirk regret telling Rasheeda to get an abortion? Does Stevie want to marry Joseline? How does Rasheeda feel about Kirk’s behavior lately?
Make sure you leave the name you’d like to be referred to as on air in the “Name” field of the comments section, as well as your location (your city would be ideal).
