Mimi Admits She Sits Back And Watches Love And Hip Hop “In Awe” Every Week

Mimi Faust is proof that Love and Hip Hop: Atlanta is anything but scripted, if you ask me. This is a woman whose life is basically going through the rockiest time a persona can imagine, learning that the man she loves for over a decade, the man she shares a child with, cheated and impregnated another woman and has proven himself to be a liar and, in her words, a “monster.”

In this interview Mimi did with TT Torrez recently, she explains that she watches the show like everybody else and is just as surprised by what she sees as we are. She also has some serious doubts about whether or not Stevie and Joseline are really getting married. Here are our five favorite quotes and things we learned from the interview, which you can listen to in full above.

  • Here’s what Mimi says her reaction is to the show every Monday night: “My mouth is on the floor most of the time like ‘Are you serious?'”
  • Joseline’s code name in Stevie J’s phone was Big Homey. “I didn’t go through his phone, I just knew Big Homey was calling him all the damn time.”
  • “Still to this day, I’m still getting ‘That’s just my artist,'” Mimi says of Stevie’s denial that he and Joseline are together.
  • *Crickets* That’s the sound we heard when Mimi was asked if she’d ever get back together with Stevie. Ohhhh boy. She’s leaving it open-ended? How??
  • “Oh, God. Come on. Stop it.” That’s Mimi’s answer to the question of whether or not Joseline and Stevie are getting married. So we’ll put that in the “no” column of our debate.

Pic Of The Day: Tami Roman Posts A Hilarious Outtake From The Basketball Wives Promo Shoot

Basketball Wives Photo Outtake

This picture has been making us laugh for the last ten minutes. If you recall, last December we were on the scene when the original Basketball Wives cast shot their glamorous promotional shots for season four in Miami, and while the final products came out beautifully, we had never seen any of the rejected shots…until now. Tami Roman posted this hilarious pic on her Instagram feed today with the caption “Funny as hell behind the scenes shot of last years BBW shoot. Jennifer look like “This sucks”-Shaunie look like “What the hell have I done to deserve this”-Evelyn look like “I’m ready to go” and I look like, “That will get you popped” LMFAOOOOOOO.” Last season was pretty entertaining, but this photo might actually be one of our favorite highlights of the whole show.

Check Out The Love And Hip Hop: Atlanta Tweets Of The Night Featuring Benzino’s Love Lessons And Reunion Predictions

Love And Hip Hop Atlanta Tweets

Every Monday night, we’ve been scouring Twitter to find some of the best tweets sent by the cast of Love And Hip Hop: Atlanta to serve as a sort of cast commentary of the show. Last night we were hoping we’d get some bonus material from Joseline and Mimi to help us fill in the blanks of where their relationship stands, but unfortunately they were both mum on that topic. But one of the prevailing themes we noticed among the cast who was actively tweeting was that the truth will all come out on the reunion episode.

Check out our gallery of the best tweets of the night to see what’s in store at the reunion, what Rasheeda thinks now that she’s watched her fight with Kirk play back, oh yeah, check out some of Benzino‘s hilarious but sweet lessons for love.

Get To Know Single Ladies’ Charles, a.k.a. Ricky Whittle

Ricky Whittle Charles From Single Ladies

After reaching an acting “plateau” in his native England, Single Ladies star Ricky Whittle, who plays the sexy, guitar-playing Charles on the show, says he wanted to move to Hollywood to be in the “epicenter” of the acting world. Whittle was famous across the pond for his roles on the insanely popular Hollyoaks soap opera and, like several other Single Ladies leading men such as William Levy, Romeo Miller, and Rick Fox, he appeared on Britain’s version of Dancing With The Stars, called Strictly Come Dancing.

In a recent interview, Whittle spoke to FanBolt about his stint on Single Ladies and what he loved about being on the show, from the sex scenes to the catering. We pulled some of our favorite snippets from the interview, plus a few bonus photos of the very sexy, very muscle-y man, below.
