If you, like me, were wondering when Love and Hip Hop Atlanta would bring the REAL drama, wonder no more because it was definitely on and popping this week in the ATL.
It opened up with Momma Dee and her family having their get together and it was “something” to say the least. Dinner started off alright but they didn’t waste any time and got right into the meet of what the get together was all about. they got Momma Dee asks Ernest mom how she felt about her son going to jail and she breaks down crying because she just doesn’t get why Dee sent her.
Jasmine jumps into it and shows her distaste for her ex step dad. “You are an opportunist.” Momma Dee is ready to get all up in her ass and of course Scrappy jumped in to bring a balance and says in the end, it’s all about who the person wants. True.
Then there is Jessica and Pre Madonna. Jessica Diamond and Dawn visits the waist trainer diva at her shop and Diamond goes in on how Mimi “fucked up” the meeting with in the last episode. Of course Dawn doesn’t have anything good to say about her she wants to manage Diamond. They have everything bad to say about Stevie J’s baby momma and because these are some messy ass women, Pre Madonna tells them how Joseline had a party, didn’t invite Jessica and that Nikko’s wife was there. Why?
We see Stevie J and he is doing great as he’s released from rehab. Let me interject here too that I had no idea how sexy Steebie is. I mean don’t get me wrong, I still think that he is a dog, but yoooooo, he is fine. I saw him in a whole new light at Yandy’s wedding in that tux and this episode with him talking about changing his life and needing to be around people who are prayed up and can help him, I want the “Good Guy” to win.
He gets out and goes straight to see his wife. There’s hugs and kisses but he does drop the bomb on her about having to go to court in New York. She doesn’t ike what she hears but doesn’t give him any trouble.
Nikko and Margeaux meet at a gym for the first time since she threw him out of her apartment. She tells him that she doesn’t really have time to deal with the shit and that she feels like he is going to make a fool out of her. He asks her for room to fix some things. She wants to get out and make a name for herself so he invites her to go out with him to a party that he was invited to (um… spoiler alert, Mimi will be there).
Next up is the slim master Kirk. He visits Ashlee Nicole while she is rehearsing. He tells her about their promotional tour coming up and that he is taking time away from his family to do it so she has to bring the noise. This bitch just lays it on thick. She asks him if Rasheeda knows and he tells her to let him deal with stuff, also mentioning that she should not have said anything about the office. This chick pretty much calls Rasheeda old, washed up and says that she needs to be sitting at home, “being old” because Kirk is going to be in good hands. Bitch, if you don’t sit your mediocre ass down. Light skin may be in, but boo you ain’t the shit.
Later, Kirk and Rasheeda talk about the tour in their yard as he prepares to leave while Ashlee is in the car and this chick, while they are arguing, tells him to “come on.” She further says, “I like ya’ll ranch… when the album drops I’m going to buy ya’ll some grass.” You think she would get the hint by the look on Rasheeda’s face but she keeps talking. This bitch tells her she’s too old to have this nonsense going on in her own drive way. Kirk just stands there letting Ashlee Nicole talk to his wife all kinds of way. Rasheeda is about to roll up on her, but Kirk holds her back. She tells him to go ahead and get in the car with the bitch (she has a plan). And get this, he gets in the car and says to her, “That’s not a good way to start the tour. ”Nigga… how about “watch yourself when you’re talking to my wife.”
She gets back at him by taking his shit and selling it. I mean she is selling his watches, his shoes, his clothes and more. Her momma and Erica come and they help her because they have her back 100 percent.
The episode ends with the meeting of Diamond and Margeaux. Pre Madonna’s event for her Waist Gang Society almost goes up in flames when Nikko introduces his wife to his mistress (great idea Nikko). I really feel bad for Margeaux here because this whole situation really isn’t fair for her.
We have to wait until next week to see what happened but it looks like it promises to be explosive.
Love & Hip Hop: Atlanta follows the lives of Atlanta’s hip-hop elite as they take on the trials and tribulations of juggling both their professional and personal lives…which often intersect and unravel for the whole world to see! After 3 seasons of ups and downs in both personal and professional pursuits, the cast of Love & Hip-Hop: Atlanta have either learned from the ATL game of mixing business and pleasure, or are about to have the same game turned on them! With artists rising and falling, and families growing or being torn apart, the cast members are about to have their lives changed in ways they never imagined…for better or worse! Nothing is off limits as they explore the good, the bad, and sometimes even the naughty side of love, passion, fame, and hip-hop!
ATL’s hip-hop scene is ever evolving, and this season our cast is looking to continue to be on the cutting edge of what’s hot in this music mecca. The Love and Hip-Hop Atlanta ladies have evolved from aspirational artists and businesswomen into savvy entrepreneurs, mothers, wives, and lovers who still struggle to deal with all of the challenges their fast-paced lives throw at them. After seasons full of infidelity/deceit towards their female counterparts, the men of ATL are seriously about to learn what goes around DEFINITELY comes right back around! The substance abuse, infidelity, and legal issues affecting the male cast will no longer just be blog fodder; they will learn that karma is a “biznayee!”
Stevie J’s “Life Partner Gang” is back in full-force! After Mimi’s tumultuous breakup with Nikko, she is looking for the professional and personal redemption she needs post-sex tape. Mimi is concentrating on her and her daughter’s future, and is ready to profit from her autobiography Let’s Have Some Wine. However, Stevie’s support is not guaranteed, especially when he has to face the legal ramifications in his own life story!
Meanwhile, after the events that occurred in New York (at the Season 3 reunion), Joseline has taken a break from Atlanta for self-reflection. When Joseline returns to ATL, she may have to support Stevie through his personal/professional issues as Stevie plans to build his musical comeback, and leave his rockstar lifestyle behind to avoid jail time!
Just when Mimi thought she gotten rid of her ex-lover Nikko for good, he’s found a way to keep a foothold in her life by reminding her he’s attached to her upcoming book deal – demanding his 25% stake. Since his separation from Mimi, Nikko has reunited with his heretofore secret of a wife, Margeaux, who is making her debut this season. Margeaux is still trying to learn how to forgive her estranged husband for his involvement in the sex tape with Mimi and she has moved down to Atlanta to see if their marriage is worth salvaging. However, Margeaux is none-too-pleased to know Nikko is still dealing with Mimi – even if it’s not personal, but all business this time.
Scrappy returns this season seemingly comfortably settled in with girlfriend Bambi, and out of the dog house! This on-again, off-again, homie/lover/friend pair are looking to see if they can make it past the “Friendship, Promise, Love” ring stage of their relationship to something more lasting. Unlike Bambi, Erica Dixon is feuding with Scrappy over support of their daughter. Erica feels its time to hold Scrappy accountable, and goes after him with a vengeance! However, Scrappy has his own side of the story, protesting he’s not only financially responsible for his daughter, but he’s a great father and is tired of being made to look like a deadbeat dad. Aside from being the best father he can be, Scrappy is also fighting to prove himself as an artist as he looks to regain his status as a force on the Atlanta music scene. Ironically, Scrappy is feeling pressure from an unexpected source; his own mother, Momma Dee, who had her own surprise hit with her song debut, “I Deserve”.
Notorious for meddling in her son’s affairs, Momma Dee may be too wrapped up in her own love-life having reunited with her ex-husband, Ernest, who has spent the last seven years in prison. However, Momma Dee’s tumultuous and traumatic past with Ernest may be too much for Scrappy and his sister Jasmine to want to re-visit.
Rasheeda and Kirk’s personal life seems to be back on the right track until new secrets in come to the surface. Rasheeda is adamant on opening up her ImBossy/Poiz storefront in Atlanta and will no longer take Kirk’s refusal! However, with secret properties and a sexy new female artist named Ashley Nicole, Kirk may get tired of Rasheeda’s constant push back and go back to his old “I do me” type ways!
Singer/entrepreneur Karlie Redd is on the top of the world right now, re-fashioning herself as a triple threat, actress, businesswoman, and recording artist – she has a hit single (“Heartbreakers”), a blockbuster movie (Top Five), and is planning on opening a store for her cosmetic and lingerie lines. In the spirit of onwards and upwards, Karlie Redd is over her past high profile relationship with rapper Yung Joc, and is proudly “married to her checks” at the moment! Messy Karlie is about her business and is not afraid to burn any bridge that doesn’t lead to her success.
After a year of living in Atlanta, a very pregnant Kalenna is ready to pop out both her new album AND her baby in the next few months!

Kalenna is struggling to finish her ‘Black Orchid’ album, and wants her “husband-ger” Tony to step it up to help her career! However, when Tony decides to invest their life savings in a club, and put Kalenna’s career on the back burner, Kalenna may be forced to choose between her marriage and her career.
Veteran rapper Yung Joc has learned the hard way about the ups and downs of hip-hop, and this year, the pendulum continues to swing for this ATL native and hip-hop scene fixture! Yung Joc’s arrangement with mother of his 1-year old twins Sina, and his current girlfriend, Khadiyah, is a disaster in the making! With a career to revive along with his brood of children, their mothers, and Khadiyah to provide for and keep satisfied, Joc has his plate extra full.
Also, with the additions of fashion entrepreneur PreMadonna (the owner of the world famous “Waist Gang Society” waist trainers), Joseline’s former stripper friend Jessica “Dimepiece”, and hip-hop star Tiffany Foxx, the veteran cast may be given a run for their money by the new girls in town! Jessica Dimepiece & Tiffany Foxx share a lot in common – both moved to Atlanta for a new beginning, both are rap artists, and both are determined to be on top. As Mimi attempts to represent both women on MF Management, Mimi will get caught in a rivalry between these two fierce and opinionated artists!
