After episode 2 of Love and Hip Hop Atlanta, I missed 4 Monday showings in a row. I was super behind, and that’s why I haven’t written recaps in a while. Finally last week, I sat down and had a marathon viewing to catch up on the shenanigans of our favorite ratcheteers. Below are my thoughts.
Momma Dee, Erica and Scrappy (And I guess Shay)
Momma Dee is kinda legit off her rockers. The woman is not to be reasoned with and logic is her archnemesis. She still insists on treating Scrappy like her 3-legged dog with lice and hearing issues. She does’t support his engagement to Erica, and she’s trying her darnedest to get Scrappy to dump her for Shay. Messy ain’t e’em the word.
At the dinner Scrappy had with Momma Dee, Mingnon (Erica’s mama), Erica ended up cussing her out. She did have a right to be mad, but she flipped out so hard. Poor chick has clearly been holding out ALLA CUSSOUTS for Scar. Shourrout to her for putting her engagement on hold though.
I must admit that I do enjoy Scrappy more this season. He has stood up to Momma Dee so many times and told her how crazy she is. He even told her “I’m not your boyfriend.” He’s been making ALL types of sense and the world is clearly topsy turvy.
“Leave me the hell alone. You love yo kid and disrespect yo kid in the same sentence. You is crazy. You need to start taking yo medicine.” HA!
And then Shay. The one who keeps showing up at Momma Dee’s house. And keeps waiting on Scrappy to realize how ride or die she is. Chile, you are DUMB. Not only does she look pathetic, but she gotta realize she’s a pawn in Momma Dee’s kingdom control game. When Scrappy called her, she got her goofy ass over to give him a massage. Girl, you’re losing SO HARD. When she realized it for the 50th time, she pitched a fit at him and threw him out her house. Girl whatever.
Anywho, Erica took off her engagement ring and called it all off after seeing text messages Scrappy sent to women. GO ON, girl!
Rasheeda and Kirk
Rasheeda’s been having a tough time. At Mimi’s housewarming, she had to face K. Michelle, who was clearly still butthurt bout her saying Memphitz never touched her. K clearly fights dirty because she threw a candle at ‘Sheeda.
Meanwhile, Kirk musta watched last season and seen that he came off as a punk so he’s tryna overcompensate this time for his mismatched manhood. Him going to confront K. Michelle on behalf of Rasheeda was supposed to do what?
And the way he reacted to Rasheeda saying she’s pregnant was ridiculous. You’da thought they were 16 and he was afraid of breaking it to his mama. Dude fixed his mouth and giant adam’s apple to call her “spiteful” for getting pregnant, like he had no parts of it at all. He e’em asked her to get an abortion.
IS YOUR DUMBASS 14?!? What kinda dumb ish is that? Out of line. Out of pocket. How does he tells his wife this nonsense? Ugh!
The fool then accused her of cheating and he wants a paternity test. I am so unable. Talk about Ain’t Shitness. I’da been dropkicked him in the legs while he was sleep. I don’t know how Rasheeda has the self control she has because WHEW!!!
I wish someone would send K. Michelle to anger management classes already because she clearly needs it. She’s spent this season ultra angry at everyone and fighting like she gets paid by how many times security has to get involved in her scenes. First was the fight with Rasheeda. Then when Kirk went to see her, she cussed him out. Then, at a video shoot Mimi was at, she fought with Johnny, one of the musicians. And we can’t forget her and Mimi getting into it over her allegations that Nikko is gay.
K. Michelle needs a hug, some couth, anger management and prayer. She gotta figure out why she’s so damb mad all the gahtdamn time. Her aura must be the color of hot dog water. When you can’t get along with ANYBODY, then it’s probably you, not them.
Oh Mimi. So pretty yet so lost. She finally stopped putting up with Stevie J. She moved out his house and refuses to tell him where she’s living. Y’all clap for her because this is what I call PROGRESS. But then, she’s dating Nikko, a producer who wears raggelly beanies tilted on the side of his head. He looks just like a live action Waynehead (remember that cartoon?). Plus, he just seems hella shady to me. It feels like Mimi is dating Stevie 2.0. Especially when he started talking out the side of his mouth about coaching her. Chile… STAWP!
Anywho, Mimi is still Team Bad Decisions because she agreed to appear in a video that Nikko was filming with his friend Johnny. And the vid looked so damb low budget. They dressed her in some squirrel fur ass coat with glitter jeans. At the shoot, Mimi ended up cussing out K. Michelle for disrupting the peace by calling Johnny gay and then she yelled at Ariane (who was NOT there for it).
Chile… a mess. She gotta get her life.
Also, Ariane has been more prominent this season and the more she gets involved, the less I like her. I loved her when she was just the stunning friend who peeked in and out. Now she’s instigator-in-charge and I’m all WOMP.
Traci and Drew
Drew asked his ex and son’s mother, Traci, to invest $25,000 in his new sneaker store, and she held the check over his head for weeks. Finally, she gives him the money and within days, he tells her that he was scammed out of ALL $50,000.
These two fools. First of all, it’s SUPER DUPER obvious that Traci’s not over Drew in the least bit. She stays being butthurt about the “groupie hoes” around Drew, flipping out whenever she sees any pretty women in his vicinity. And she talks about their history all wistfully. Chile… you must move on. He clearly ain’t here for her as anything but his co-parent and possible cash cow.
Drew’s not the brightest lightbulb. He’s bout 10 watts TOPS. Who gives someone $50,000 without a contract? Was that store ever even going to happen? Why does he always look like he gotta focus hard not to fall? Dude is pretty but vapid. Traci girl, you can do better.
Joseline. Stevie J. and Che Mack
Joseline has been fulfilling her duties as the character with the best one-liners on the show. The chick is still as ballsy as I expected her to be and I can’t help but enjoy her foolishness. Her beef with Stevie was fun to watch too because she stays checking him and he can’t do nothing but scowl. They finally made up though and we’re introduced to what happens if Joseline took a 5-hour energy drink, got braces and a stronger face: Che Mack.
Che Mack is also a rapper and she’s tryna have Stevie put her on but the girl is hella aggressive and she lacks self-awareness like Joseline but without any of the charisma. Homegirl is thirsty to work with Stevie and she ain’t shy to about it. When her and Hernandez met, she was told “Bitch I’ll kick you dead in your braces so watch your fucking mouth, hoe.”
I’m petty. Because I laughed so hard. Joseline had to be carried out because after she got up, she swung at Che. Stevie made her apologize after the fact and Che’s dumbass gon tell her he brought her a TV after her house was broken into. So of course, she ain’t take that well. Her and Steebie had one of their epic fall outs and he sneered bout owning her for the next 6 years.
Benzino’s still Neckless in Atlanta, and he told Karlie Redd that he slept with Joseline. When Joseline heard that, she laughed and had a few words about it, talmbout how she can’t sleep with him because he ain’t got no neck. HA!
His homie Steebie ain’t take to that accusation well so they relinquished their homie-dom. Then Zino invited Kirk the Jerk to his crib and got an earful bout how Rasheeda’s pregnancy is such an inconvenience. Meanwhile, there are strippers all over the place doing brash things for cash but these two were fixated on each other and this ridiculous conversation.
Look at the twerkage happening on that pole. Chile…
So yeah. Now I’m all caught up.
Kirk is a coward bitch. K. Michelle is angry. Benzino is neckless. Rasheeda is pregnant. Mimi is Team Bad Decisions. Stevie J is a crook. Erica is getting it together. Scrappy is trifling. Momma Dee is crazy. Shay is losing. Joseline is… I love her and I can’t tell you why.
I will be back to regular per episode recaps next week!
Anywho, have you been watching LHHATL this season? What are your thoughts?
