Mimi’s Sex Tape Drama in New Trailer for ‘Love & Hip Hop Atlanta’ Season 3 (Watch)

loveandhiphopatlantaseason3

VH1 has released a 4 minute 36 second trailer for “Love & Hip Hop Atlanta” season 3, and Lord have mercy.  Ratchet doesn’t even begin to describe this. [Scroll down to watch.]

Of course Mimi and Nikko’s sex tape is one of the season’s major storylines, both before and after Vivid Entertainment got involved in releasing it.

Here’s how the network breaks down the entire season:

1. Stevie J.’s actually happy being married to Joseline Hernandez. Who knew that he’d enjoy being tied down to one woman!

2. Mimi Faust and Nikko make a sex tape — and all hell breaks loose. Mimi is still with her “boo” Nikko (and his tick-tock Rolex), and friend Ariane Davis isn’t too happy about it. At lunch, Mimi reveals to Ariane and Erica Dixon that she and Nikko are thinking of making a sex tape. When the word gets out, Vivid head honcho Steve Hirsch propositions the couple on releasing their intimate vid for a profitable return. Mimi is distraught about it as she’s mom to Stevie’s 3-year-old daughter, Eva, and thinks that Stevie J. is going to make her life “a living hell.” Later we see that Stevie in fact learns about the sex tape and tells Mimi that he is going to take legal action to make sure Eva is in proper care. In addition, Stevie J. tells Nikko that if the tape is leaked, “there will be a problem,” and the two men go head-to-head.

3. Kirk Frost takes a paternity test on baby Karter. After trying to work on his marriage with wife Rasheeda Frost, Kirk is apparently changing his tune and secretly tests newborn Karter to see if the child is in fact his own. He then has friend Benzino read him the results, which Benzino later burns in a parking lot. Next we see what looks like a confrontation between Kirk and Rasheeda with her breaking down in tears.

4. Enter Waka Flocka Flame and his baby mama drama. Season 3 newcomer Waka Flocka Flame joins the fold with his fianceé, Tammy Rivera, and they have their share of drama. Tammy confides in Joseline that he has “changed” and Joseline tells her that “men will be men.”

5. Mimi tells Tammy to beware of Joseline. Tammy is warned by Mimi Faust to be weary of Joseline and it appears to be for good reason. In another scene, we Tammy and Joseline getting into an argument with Tammy throwing Joseline’s stripper past in her face.

6. Kirk makes moves on the new nanny. With Rasheeda looking to get back into the studio, Kirk has been enlisted with choosing the perfect nanny for baby Karter — however, Kirk decides to hire someone who can also take care of him. When the nanny tells Rasheeda that she was under the impression that Kirk and Rasheeda were “separated, co-parenting in the same house,” Rasheeda loses it.

7. Karlie Redd shacks up with Yung Joc and is in for a surprise. Now that we know rapper Yung Joc is joining the LHHATL cast, we learn that his relationship with Karlie isn’t all that it’s cracked up to be. In fact, Karlie called Yung out for smelling like other women, and even confronts a woman who says she’s been having sex with him every night.

8. Momma Dee tries to hook Lil Scrappy up with women… while he’s dating Bambi. Momma Dee is back to her old tricks and tells Scrappy that he needs to take his time dating women — while he’s apparently attached to newcomer Bambi. Bambi asks Scrappy if he’s being loyal, and he says “yes,” but Momma Dee drops the bombshell that he “has more than one egg in his basket.” This egg is more than likely the one named “Erica,” who we see Scrappy getting cozy with.
But things get messier when we catch a glimpse of a woman shopping for a pregnancy test. Scrappy confides in Kirk that “she’s pregnant,” and that he and this lady (is it Erica or Bambi?) plan on keeping the baby. Erica and Bambi confront each other (in front of Scrappy and later with Momma Dee) and can’t seem to keep their hands off of each other.

9. Sleazy and Zino “brawl.” During the “grand opening” of Benzino and Stevie J.’s bar, Sleazy and Zino, an argument between Benzino and ex Karlie ends with Benzino’s fianceé, Althea “Thi Thi” Heart, throwing her drink on Karlie and Benzino asking for Karlie to be thrown out. Meanwhile, Momma Dee pulls Scrappy to the side and tells him he needs to learn how to “control” his women. However, we know that a bigger brawl ensued that night with several of the cast members jumping in, and leaving several parties injured.

10. Benzino gets shot. It looks like the rumors are true and the cameras were rolling during the aftermath of the shooting that happened at the funeral procession for Benzino’s mother this past March. We see Athea and Stevie J. sit beside Zino who is strapped up to several monitors and IVs. “Let me just tell you something man. You got a strong support system, you got a lot of people who love you. The best thing now for you to do is relax, you feel me?” Stevie J. tells his sleeping friend.

Major Shade: NeNe Leakes Says Cynthia Bailey ‘Brings Nothing To (RHOA)’ – Watch

nene-leakes-cynthia-baileyNeNe Leakes has always made it known how she feels. No matter what or who it concerns.

In this case, it’s Cynthia Bailey. Leakes brought up her “Real Housewives of Atlanta” (now former) bestie during an appearance on Bravo’s “Watch What Happens Live” following Sunday’s season finale of the popular reality TV show.

Although she express her dislike for fellow “RHOA” castmate Kenya Moore, Leakes caught many off guard when she told “WWHL” host Andy Cohen that she is no longer friends with Bailey. To hammer the point home, Leakes went on to say that Bailey brings nothing to new to “RHOA.”

“I think Cynthia is OK,” Leakes stated. “It’s not like she’s really bringing anything to the show.”

The comments didn’t go unnoticed by Bailey, who reacted to Leakes’ views on her via Twitter, tweeting ” I was a loyal friend to @NeNeLeakes. #truth”

Despite throwing shade on Bailey, Leakes spared Moore from being on her list of people she would like to see fired from “RHOA.” Instead the former “Dancing With the Stars” competitor mentioned that she would keep Moore around on the strength that more of an asset to the show than Bailey.

“I personally do not like Kenya, but I am all for the good of the show,” Leakes said. “I have been here since day 1 and I think she’s good for the show.”

Leakes’ comments come as Bravo prepares to air its “RHOA” reunion special. The three-part program will kick off at 8 p.m. on Sunday. To see Leakes’ latest appearance on “WWHL, check out the video below:

“Why does it matter now? Who can do you better?”

Obviously no one like KC! Readying her new album, Point of No ReturnKeyshia Cole is grabbing a massive amount of attention with her latest single, “Rick James“.

Calling on Juicy J to give the track that extra sense of ratchet, the bad girl of R&B is serving up some real life hot girl in her new music.

Fresh off the heels of the pics that she shared from the shoots for the “Rick James” and “Next Time” visuals, Fuse has released some behind the scenes footage on the set of the albums primary single. Showing the Cali singer dressed in ’80s gear – which included the big hair and neon colors – you’ll feel like you stepped back into a scene of ‘Saved by the Bell’.

While there’s no premiere date for the video just yet, fans can get an early look with the clip below:

Wiz Khalifa took part in what is being billed as the first-ever televised sign language rap battle.

The rapper performed his hit “Black & Yellow” on “Jimmy Kimmel Live!” Monday night as three, nationally-certified U.S. sign language interpreters attempted to keep up with him, one at a time.

The three women were not new to interpreting rap lyrics – they had collectively worked with Wu-Tang Clan, Beastie Boys, Snoop Dogg and Eminem, among others.

REVIEW: ‘In Performance at the White House: Women of Soul’ (Sneak Peek)

President Barack Obama and First Lady Michelle Obama host "Women of Soul: In Performance at the White House" in the East Room of the White House, March 6, 2014. Jill Scott, Tessanne Chin, Melissa Etheridge, Patti LaBelle, Janelle Mon‡e and Ariana Grande perform together on stage.

 

Greg Phillinganes had the band on point as musical director, putting particular muscle behind Etheridge’s powerful delivery of “I’m the Only One,” Monae’s “Tightrope” and Ms. Patti’s “Lady Marmalade.”

Ariana Grande, 20, had the nerve to attempt Whitney Houston’s “I Have Nothing”… and held her own, (yes, she hit the high note), earning the crowd’s approval for her effort. Tessanne Chin, 28, showed why she won season 5 of “The Voice” with a rendition of Donna Summer’s “Last Dance.”

The night, however, clearly belonged to Franklin. She threw her formidable pipes into “I Never Loved a Man (The Way I Love You)” and later wrapped the evening with “Amazing Grace” as only she can.

R.I.P. Velvet: RHOA’s Kenya Moore Melts Down Over Loss of Dog (Watch)

The mysterious boost in face time given to Kenya Moore’s little pup Velvet in the two “Real Housewives of Atlanta” episodes leading up to Sunday night now makes sense.

Producers were preparing viewers to understand the depth of Moore’s complete meltdown upon hearing that Velvet had passed away suddenly after being attacked by a neighbor’s dog.

On the show, Moore was seen bawling as her Aunt Lori rushed to her bedside.

“It happened so fast. I let her outside and then I heard her screaming,” Moore sobbed about her pet Yorkshire terrier. “I ran outside. She was on the other side of the gate. The dog had her in its mouth, dangling her.”

Moore told her Aunt Lori she had rushed Velvet to the veterinary hospital, but it was too late.

“She was looking at me; I told her not to leave me. I could just see her letting go.”

Moore explained to Bravo’s cameras she’d had Velvet for seven years.

“I wasn’t there to protect her!” Moore moaned to her aunt, who tried in vain to console her. “She always protected me … even though she was little.

“Why her? Why now?” Moore said through her tears. “How do I go on?”

Moore’s aunt told her it wasn’t going to be easy but she had to accept it — and should definitely have a memorial service for her pet.

“My whole world revolved around Velvet,” Moore told the cameras.

Aunt Lori suggested that maybe Velvet’s demise was God’s way of making room for a child for Moore.

“Do you believe that you’re going to have a child?” Aunt Lori asked Moore. “Do you think you can give a child that same love you showed Velvet? …That may be why God called Velvet away, so you can give this new child your undivided attention and your unconditional love.”

Later, Moore met with co-star Kandi Burruss and Cynthia Bailey to break the bad news about her dog.

“She was my baby,” Moore told Burruss and Bailey, saying she wanted them–and perhaps no other housewives–at Velvet’s memorial service.

Letterman and Obama 516

Not long after David Letterman announced his retirement in 2015 on Thursday, reactions from fellow talk show hosts, as well as the White House, were swift.

Arsenio Hall, on his show last night, joked Letterman’s planned exit, coming right behind Jay Leno’s departure from “The Tonight Show,” was by design.

 

President Obama weighed in via Twitter:

Seth Meyers, who currently hosts NBC “Late Night,” the show Letterman created before moving to CBS, noted on the show that he would not be there without Dave:

NBC’s current “Tonight Show” host Jimmy Fallon, who formerly held the “Late Night” spot, stated: “Dave’s the greatest. One of the true innovators in TV history. He’s made all of us better.”

ABC’s Jimmy Kimmel – who last month told TV Guide “I’d definitely consider it” when asked if he would replace Letterman at CBS, adding, “I am loyal to ABC and grateful to them for giving me a shot. I was a guy from The Man Show when they put me on. I’m not looking to flee. But just getting a call from Dave would be big for me. So it’s definitely something I would listen to” — tweeted:

David @Letterman is the best there is and ever was.

— Jimmy Kimmel (@jimmykimmel) April 3, 2014

 

Ellen DeGeneres also commented via Twitter:

David @Letterman announced he’s retiring in 2015. It’s been 31 incredible years. Television won’t be the same without you, Dave.

Drake Samples Lauryn Hill on New Track ‘Draft Day’ (Listen)

drake mayfair

Drake has pulled off a rarity with his new song “Draft Day.”

The track samples Lauryn Hill’s 1998 “Doo-Wop (That Thing)” – a huge accomplishment considering Kanye West couldn’t get a sample cleared from the Fugees singer back in 2004.

In the song, Dake gives shout-outs for soon-to-turn-pro quarterback (and good friend) Johnny Manziel, NBA star-in-the-waiting Andrew Wiggins, actor Jennifer Lawrence (“You could really get it”) and there’s a namecheck for Chicago’s “acid rap” pioneer Chance The Rapper.

“Draft Day” is currently available to stream and download at Soundcloud.

The song is fast turning viral, thanks in no small part to its possible reference to Jay Z and Kanye West (“Just hits, no misses/That’s for the married folks”). The rapper has been waiting for his chance since Jay Z took a subtle shot at Drake on a Jay Electronica track with the line: “Sorry Mr. Drizzy for so much art talk/ Silly me rappin’ ’bout sh** that I really bought/ Why these rappers rap about guns they ain’t shot?/ And a bunch of other silly sh** that they ain’t got.”

Drake’s fourth album “Nothing Was The Same” arrived at No. 1 on The Billboard 200 following its release last September. The set passed the million sales mark by November.
