‘Love & Hip Hop Atlanta’ recap, episode 8

Stevie J: class act. CREDIT: VH1

Stevie J: class act. CREDIT: VH1

There are multiple storylines on VH1’s “Love & Hip Hop Atlanta” but the producers are honing in on the one that is truly compelling: the love triangle of Joseline, Mimi and Stevie J.

Stevie J wants to have his cake and eat it, too. He’d like to have both ladies as part of his harem. His problem: the women want none of that. They each want him for themselves. He can’t have it both ways.

But, oh, he is going to try.

He started therapy with Mimi, his baby’s mama. He acts all sincere, acknowledging that he’s a liar and a cad and all that jazz. But at the same time, he is still wanting to bonk singer Joseline and keep her as a “client” in his music business. Mimi is not going for that but he insists.

In fact, he somehow thinks by bringing the two ladies into a therapy session, he could smooth things out and get them to understand his way of thinking. This is one delusional human being.

In fact, things get awkward fast, especially when he wipes sweat off the nose of a nervous Joseline in front of Mimi. The psychologist calls him on it. He claims it’s all innocent, not a “passive aggressive” move to disrespect Mimi. Mimi is seething. Then Joseline finds out that Stevie J is not only trying to reconcile with Mimi but that he and Mimi are now living together. He conveniently omitted that information to Joseline. Joseline goes nuts.

The producers of “Love & Hip Hop Atlanta” were ready with security at this point because the minute Joseline started pummeling Stevie J, the security team (borrowed possible from an old episode of “Jerry Springer”) swooped in to stop the ruckus. Joseline’s a strong woman. It took a bit of time to clear this mess up. The best part: one camera person honed in on Mimi, who just sat there with a grin on her face. She was happy to see him get his comeuppance – and she didn’t have to lay a finger on him.

Stevie J eventually escapes the clutches of a spurned Joseline and is seen wandering down the street in a daze.

But in previews for next week, he’s in a strip club with Benzino still convinced he could “fix” this situation to his liking.

What will it take for him to get in his thick skull that this is an untenable situation?

I think this show is SUPER fake. I watched two episodes and the delivery was over the top fake and stiff. I can’t believe anyone is still watching this garbage.

I have tried to watch this show. It’s too ghetto. The females are all ugly as hell. They are wearing false eyelashes and either a jacked up weave or wig. They are really ghetto and do not represent Women that live in Atlanta. They look like they have been in prison at least once in their life. They wear tatoos as if it’s an honor. They look really bad and their actions are worse. Just straight up ghetto.

These have to be the DUMBEST chicks in the world!!! This train wreck has to be scripted! I hope that is not however, can Mimi be that stupid to put up with that mess. I get the whole wanting to keep your family together but, at what cost? A male can’t do anything to you that you don’t allow him to do. Stevie J is a nasty walking disease ready to explode!

YOU ABOUT THE ATM RECEIPT!

Why is it that these woman fall for these guys? Is it really about the money and fame?! YES! They dont want a good man they want the glitz and glam and they get dogged for it! They deserve what they get. Keep doing what you do and keep getting what you get! I hope he keeps dogging them…………….HARD!

The election of BHO was supposed to stop all of this nonsense and finally give these people a sense of shame, and also cause pants to be pulled up all across America.

I think that all of them are crazy as hell. Stevie J is living in a fantasy world. Mimi and Joseline are just plain old stupid. Mimi is trying to hold on to a ho-bitch and Joseline is a ho-bitch. The most important thing about this situation is the baby. Mimi need to focus on her daughter and leave this crazy ass man alone. He is out there having sex with any and every body and it is apparent that he is not using any protection. What will it take for Mimi to get it through her thick skull that this man is no good. Why would she put your health in harms way over this fool. She can get rid of Stevie J; but she can’t get rid of HIV/AIDS. I am in shock how these grown ass people are acting and showing just how stupid they really are behind closed doors. I am shaking my head in disgust. These people have no shame whatsoever…

Stevie J is not attractive with his big nose. He seems to be a down-low jerk. Poor Mimi, she needs counseling just for herself and daughter. Joseline is still a transexual, which proves Stevie J is a bisexual man whom seem to love both sexes and particularly women who look like men!!!

@ Preciouslady48 you are on point!!!!!…Mimi can get rid of Stevie J; but she can’t get rid of HIV/AIDS….RUN Mimi while u have a chance!!!!

Stevie, Joseline opened up a can of whoop a_ _ on you! You reap what you sow. You have just lost
your players card. Are you’ll aware of AIDS? Mimi you’re just baby mama and Joseline booty call.
You ladies can do better, it’s not about what’s between your legs but what’s in your head.

I watch the show just because of the Atlanta aspect. I think it’s funny and don’t take it as “real” but enjoy it and know it’s garbage.

@Gary

People watch this because it makes for great TV viewing….

1. Drama sells
2. Sex sells
3. Conflict sells
4. Controversy sells
5. Dishonestly sells

Everyone getting along and making nice is BORING…………

Keep in coming yall………………

I liked how Stevie J opened that Corona at Benzino’s crib w his teeth. That about sums this show up in one scene.

@Gary

Come on Gary,

If you were given an opportunity to write a screen play about everyday people, would you inject a little drama into your storyline?

Drama is as old as Shakespeare’s mama and I am telling you it makes for a great story.

This show is scripted and not 100% real…and like Sam H I take it for what it is – GARBAGE but man it’s sooooooooo GOOD!!!!!!!!!!

This show is great!!! It is a hit mess and it is throughly entertaining. I didn’t know any of these people before the show started, but they are so damn funny! Thanks VH1. Steve J got a lot of nerve, but Joseline handled his behind last night!

@need a new JOB

You’re 100% correct …I think you meant HOT mess…

There were some great performances last night ….you know this stuff is scripted when the producers – just happened to have security standing by – they told Josline to handle her business and she did.

The need to had out some Emmy awards to some of these reality stars……

WOW…..

Just started a new drinking game, when you watch the next episode. Take a shot everytime someone from the show uses the word “Situation” or when you can’t understand LiL Scrappy, his Momma, his girlfriend, or K Michelle when they are speaking.

K-Michelle does have a nice butt

They need to hand out some Emmys to some of the cast members…..GREAT Performances last night….

@Quagmire

LOL….I like the game…but you are going to need a “WARNING” message before the participants can get started.

“IF YOU PLAY BY THE RULES “Take a shot everytime someone from the show uses the word “Situation” or when you can’t understand LiL Scrappy, his Momma, his girlfriend, or K Michelle when they are speaking.”

THIS COULD POSSIBLY LEAD TO ALCOHOL POISENING OR DEATH – BECUASE YOU WILL BE DRINKING A LOT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Questions and Thoughs

Would you consider Joseline a bully because she beatup someone smaller than her?………………LoL

Stevie, I know you want another hit, but you didn’t see that one coming……………

Rasheeda, change up your rap style, if it’s not selling, it lacks creativity or talent

I admit, this show is a guilty pleasure of mine each Monday night, before Single Ladies comes on. I do have to say, Joseline went “Ham” on Stevie J, but my thing is this with Mimi, how do you expect Stevie J to be faithful to you, when this situation played before? It’s my understanding, when he was dating the rapper/actress Eve over a decade ago, he cheated on her with Mimi? What goes around, comes around? I think that saying is still true…….but I’m just saying……

@Quagmire I like that game. Hey how about double shots whenever someone says “baby moms”. Lol!

No matter what’s said this show is my guilty little pleasure. It lets me know my life is going down the right path.

Miss J–you are right. I definately meant hot mess! I also thought the security was very close by and on que….hmmmm. I don’t like to believe that it is scripted. When she knicked Steve J upside his face and body, it didn’t look fake at al. Her rage did not look fake either.

Has anyone noticed the crazy face Steve J makes when he’s doing his commentary (talking to us)? he smiles put then he draws his whole mouth into a tight dime size O. it’s wierd and evil looking. He can’t do anything that these women aren’t letting happen though. I hope it doens’t end!

Oh another thought….remember back in Real World (MTV) days? They were NOT allowed to fight. You coulnd’t even push someone. why is it ok for the people on the latest shows go ballistic on someone? Same with Basketball wives. Ya’ll know Evelyn is a beast!

I enjoy watching Love and Hip Hop ATL. It’s no different than any of the Housewives shows or all of the reality shows out there. I have always wondered if Joseline was a straight up man…now I know she is…she was whooping ass last night. Stevie J need to get tested and so does Mimi…money or no money…think about that beautiful child. This show is no different from all the others. I will continue to support it. Can’t wait for next week…

I feel so sorry for MiMi sometimes looking at the show…but then again no i dont she doesnt have a backbone….she needs to know her worth….really you deal with this dude ….you need to look in the mirror and decide that you are worth more and dump his sorry @#@…..let Josepline have him ….girl listed watch the VH1 special on Eve and i bet you will see a pattern….he is a user and when he is done he finds another woman that is low…..FIND YOUR WORTH and move on honey

This show sucks… Mimi doesn’t have any money so she puts up with stevie j so she can continue to ride around and nice cars and live in a decent house. She properly don’t have any skills to get a job to support herself and her child. Stevie J I’m surprised still has money since he hasn’t put out a hit since the 90’s and Jose is a man baby..

@Dynomite…Mimi owns her own cleaning business, so she works for hers. She’s not with him for the money. She is just a chick who fell in love with a fool. I was dying when Joseline put her paws on Stevie J. That chick works out so that would explain her strength. lol.

Scripted or not Stevie J is still the man. Whoever is feeding joseline the “barbecue corn bread” is a good nutritionist. I would like that booty on some of my jump-offs! Like scrappy said” forever I love Atlanta”. Maybe not.
