After watching the preview, I had decided that I would not take part in watching the foolishness that is Love & Hip Hop Atlanta. The show looked like a hot mess! But of course, after seeing everyone’s tweets Monday night and hearing about the show from so many different sources on Tuesday, I thought I’d take a peek at the show to see what all of the hoopla was about.
My first question is, who are these people? I don’t think I’ve heard of any of them. I don’t remember Stevie J from the 90s, but I’ve seen lots of comments about how he was a producer for Bad Boys Entertainment and he dated Eve back in the day. How do you go from working with Bad Boy to having a studio at a Auto Detail shop?? I’m confused…
My second question; do people really live like this???? This has to be scripted!
All I kept thinking was Mimi is sad and insane. You know Stevie J has cheated on you, is currently cheating on you and yet you still decide to stay and fight with him over it. It’s been 15 years. If he isn’t giving you what you deserve, LEAVE! Staying around having the same conversation over and over but expecting a different result in called insanity! And why would you want to do a show that highlights you trying to make a life with a cheating boyfriend. They don’t even try to hide it on the show. This is worse than Emily B crying about Fabolous not acknowledging her. And it doesn’t take a rocket scientist to know why he wasn’t claiming her either. Ladies we need to develop self esteem and do better!
Sigh…I don’t even know what to say about Joseline, the so called artist aka Stevie J’s jumpoff. She’s a hot mess too. And while I don’t believe any woman should be a jumpoff, if you’re going to choose to be one, please know your role and act accordingly. Don’t talk sideways to the main chick or wonder why she’s upset if you show up with her boyfriend.
Is Lil Scrappy’s mom still on drugs?? That’s a serious question…
I guess I can’t knock them because they are all making money by being on the show. But seriously, I felt like I lost brain cells watching that first episode. The rest of the season looks like it’ll be the same drama we’ve seen on other reality shows: cheating boyfriends, women hating each other, jumpoffs getting pregnant (don’t know if we’ve seen that on a reality show. *shrugs* First time for everything). While I do engage in the guilty pleasure of watching reality shows including Basketball Wives, Real Housewives and the original Love & Hip Hop, I don’t know about this one.
Did you watch Love & Hip Hop Atlanta? What did you think???
