Who is this guy Raquel is sneaking a kiss from, and what did he do with Charles??
That’s what we’re wondering now that we’ve seen this sneak peek of Monday night’s Single Ladies. To find out who Raquel’s mystery man is, tune in at 9 p.m. ET/PT. Also, why is it so damn easy for Raquel to find hot men to kiss? Life is so unfair sometimes.
Ryan Lochte was made for reality TV. The Olympic champion has a huge personality, a family that doesn’t know the definition of TMI, he loves of flashy things (like diamond grills and giant sneaker collection, and like every other reality star we can think of, his dream is to start a fashion line. So when we heard the news that the swimmer is fielding two reality show offers, we weren’t surprised, like we said, everything about his was made for that kind of thing. Lochte’s rep told the Hollywood Reporter, “I cannot tell you the exact shows, but two different reality show concepts have been offered and one additional is being discussed.” Since the shows that Lochte is being offered aren’t being revealed, allow us to make one ridiculous, far-fetched plea that one of the shows be Love And Hip Hop: Atlanta. It would make perfect sense! Allow us to explain.
Despite the denials from K.Michelle herself that she and Lochte aren’t an item, we think that he would be the perfect addition to this cast. They pair could provide the show with a “will they or won’t they?” couple necessary to take the attention off Stevie, Joseline, and Mimi‘s love triangle. Plus, if you know Ryan’s music taste you’d know he loves Lil’ Wayne and that would be just about the greatest cameo on the show that we can think of. And then of course there’s his grill. If K.Michelle can entertain us just by changing her hair every week, imagine how fun it will be to watch Lochte rotate his tooth jewels.
Look, we know our plea might fall on deaf ears, but we’re just putting it out there in the universe, The Secret-style, in hopes that we can make this happen. In the meantime, check out our exclusive clip below in which K.Michelle discusses her relationship with the Olympian, and tell us you don’t think he’d make a good addition to the show.

Last week on Love And Hip Hop: Atlanta, Mimi Faust made the rather shocking announcement that her mother, Gloria Eva Simmons James, abandoned Mimi and the rest of their family in order to pursue Scientology. By the time Mimi reached the age of thirteen, her mom had moved to the Scientology headquarters in Los Angeles and took Mimi with her, but Mimi realized the religion wasn’t for her and she left on her own. In a recent interview with the Village Voice, Mimi shares her story in detail about what happened next and how Scientology had a firm grip on her mother until her death. We’ve outlined her pretty unbelievable and sad story below, and the entire thing is available online at the Voice‘s website.
- “When my mom joined Scientology, I was still living here in Atlanta. I think I was six or seven when she was introduced to Scientology. By the time I was 8 or 9 she just went balls to the wall and sold everything we owned. Our house, our car, everything,” Mimi says. Then, at the age of thirteen, her mother left Mimi’s two older siblings behind in Atlanta and took Mimi to Hollywood to live at Scientology headquarters. There, here mother signed a billion-year contract with the religion.
- While they lived at the Scientology facility, her mother worked for the intelligence division of the organization. “I had no idea what she did from the day we got there until the day she died.” After a few years, Mimi was asked to join the religion herself but refused. “At 13, they told me that I was a freeloader. I was eating their food and staying in their facility. They told me I either needed to sign a billion-year contract or I had to leave.” So while she was still in high school, she left the housing complex, couch surfed for the rest of the school year, and later found a job to support herself. “I figured my mom would try to stop me. But there was nothing. She didn’t ask me where I was going, she didn’t ask if I had bus fare. I think that’s what hurt the most. That she just watched me walk away.”
In the world of Love And Hip Hop: Atlanta internet parodies, there is one common denominator: Stevie J‘s rat-face.
There have been rumblings about which celebrities would be appearing on season two of VH1′s successful relationship rehab show Couples Therapy, and we’re happy to announce that finally, we can reveal all the participants.

One of the best parts of our week is following along on Twitter while the cast of Love And Hip Hop: Atlanta live-tweets their show. We learn a lot, we laugh a lot, and sometimes we shake our head in disbelief. This week, Scrappy, Erica, K.Michelle and Rasheeda all had things to say about their own plotlines, and Joseline used Twitter as a place to apologize to Stevie for her attack in Dr. Jeff’s office. See? Twitter is a positive place where good things can happen. Read all our favorite cast tweets below.
