Love & Hip-Hop Atlanta: Episode 1 Recap
The first night of the newest addition to VH1″s reality TV lineup premiered last night: Love & Hip-Hop Atlanta. It is the spinoff of its popular mother show: Love & Hip-Hop, where the fiances, girlfriends, ex-girlfriends and jump-offs coexist in their own little world of nightclubs, fancy restaurants and leased vehicles. The dirty south”s version features:
Now that we”ve introduced the cast, we won”t take up too much of your time recapping. To say that last night”s premiere was entertaining is an understatement. The actual star of the show wasn”t even highlighted above: Stevie J. The show begins by him driving Mimi deep into the outskirts of Atlanta and presents her with this new house that is “for her and their daughter.” This is clearly a ploy to keep Mimi far away from the recording studio in downtown Atlanta where Stevie frolics with his “artist” Joseline.
Erica is struggling with her relationship with Lil Scrappy. Scrappy is begging for more intimacy between them, but it is hard for Erica to give that to him. We then go on to be introduced to Scrappy”s mom Mama Dee. A former pimp and drug dealer, Mama Dee is a very strong and vocal character. She expresses her feelings towards Diamond for leaving her son, saying, “She doesn”t need a rap deal, she needs a Massengill deal,” and proceeds to say that she “should”ve put Diamond on the track back in the day.”
K. Michelle tells the story of her ugly departure with Jive Records and her manager to Rasheeda. The episode ends with K. Michelle”s birthday party at a club. All of the girls gather, as Karlie professes to Mimi that she has witnessed Stevie”s involvement with Joseline. Stevie then walks in with Joseline. A few drinks were thrown and there was an altercation in the parking lot. Very entertaining.
Well, enough of our talking. Take a look for yourself. Watch the full first episode below:
