Mimi’s Still Losing, Momma Dee’s Shaking the Table: LHHATL Ep. 2 Recap

When we left the Love and Hip Hop Atlanta crew last episode, Joseline had just walked into Stevie’s house and called Mimi “Molly the Maid.” Mimi barked like she usually does and Stevie got put out his own house. So we pick up there. But this episode also intros us to the newest addition to the cast.

Joseline got Cajones – Well, naturally Stevie ended up in Joseline’s bed and it’s clear they made the SESS the night before. Joseline drops a bomb on him that she isn’t feeling their relationship because his baby mama is distracting him and she just wants to focus on their work. She’s talmbout how she does her job, which is to “be a bad bitch.”

Bad Bitch Joseline LHHATL

The girl got ambition, yall. Steebie’s all butthurt as she leaves the room and asks her to make him some breakfast. She tells him she ain’t making a damb thing and to ask “Molly the Maid.” iHollered.

Throw Mama Under the Bus – Scrappy’s home from a trip and Erica tells him ho her mama doesn’t believe they will walk down the aisle. Ma’am, I know you’re excited your man is back but you ain’t gotta throw your mama under the bus. Anywho, she asks him to talk to her so they can end up on the same page and he obliges in the name of love then ask her for a foot rub. *shivers*

Traci and the THAHAs – Traci is the newest addition to LHHATL and she’s a radio DJ in Atlanta whose baby daddy is Drew, Chris Brown’s DJ. Their son Baby Drew is the tie left between them. Well, Drew comes to the studio and gets a lecture from her on how she doesn’t like groupies around her son. This fool talmbout that’s why he has on a tshirt with “THAHA” on it. It’s code for “These Hoes are Hoes Always.” That dumb as hell. Well, Traci tells him she ain’t got tahm for “microwavable bitches” who just pop out of everywhere around her son and I started to like her. She gets a hat tip for that phrase.

Mimi’s Misplaced Anger – Mimi and K.Michelle go boxing, and the way she’s attacking the punching bag, it’s clear she got all this rage against the Steebie. You wouldn’t have to get rid of ALL that anger if you actually put him in his place and leave him there. MMHMM. K says “You can’t watch over a man. He’s gonna do what he’s gonna do.” Come on, K.Michelle wisdom!

Signed, Sealed and Hoodwinked – Joseline meets with her agent/booker/I don’t damb know for some lunch and the lady tells her she’s made $100,000 in the past 2 months. As I sit home and wonder what the heck I’m doing wrong with MY life! Joseline says she’s worried about the CONTRAK (contract) she signed with Stevie, because she ain’t read it and hasn’t seen it since. How predictable of her?!? SMDH.

LHHATL Contract LHHATL Contract 2

Scar and Shay – Momma Dee picks up a still-butthurt Shay to give her a peptalk about how she can get Scrappy back, while rocking her most raggedy wig yet. She outchea looking like she’s about to sing “Be Prepared.” She is scary. She tells Shay that she is gonna get back on her job as being Queen of the kingdom because Scrappy’s running wild. Her throne must be under Harry Potter’s invisibility cloak because nobody but her can see it. But her commitment and obsession with her son really reads like a reverse Oedipus Complex and it’s a bit disturbing.

Sneakers and Snickers – Traci goes to Drew’s house to pick up her son and finds dinner cooking. Drew wants them to sit down for a family meal because he wants to talk. He wants to stop touring so much and start a business in Atlanta, so he asks Traci to invest $25,000 in his sneaker boutique venture. She tells him that she needs to see a change in his behavior. Nawl! Negro, lemme see a business plan! She warns him that if she does give him money, she doesn’t wanna see any “Groupie bitches” benefitting from it. Her use of that phrase with such fervor endears me to her.

In-Laws Bond – Scrappy goes to Erica’s mama, Mingnon, for the talk he promised. She tells him she knows how much he’s hurt Erica in the best and he turns the tables and says her background ain’t been pure either. She admits to being missing from her life for 5 years while she battled addiction but she overcame it and is a new woman. Scrappy uses that to his point that people can change and do better. Someone’s been watching debate videos on YouTube!

Contraks and Crooks – Joseline sits down with Stevie and asks for her contract because she’s afraid he owns her since she doesn’t know what she signed. He says he DOES own her but she shouldn’t fret because she’s been doing what she wants and getting paid. Which, she hasn’t shared with him and she owes him 30%. She says she won’t share a dime until she sees what she signed. Stevie is a crook and she’s a dumbass. Don’t sign a CONTRAK you ain’t read next time, JOSELINE! She prolly signed over her wigs for the next 20 years.


Mimi’s Moving On Down – Mimi takes K.Michelle to see the apartment she’s about to make her own home, talmbout how big of a step this is. NO MA’AM! You are grown and you shouldn’t have been living in your estranged baby daddy’s house. Ugh.

808s and Heartbreak – Scrappy is in the studio recording “Put them Paws on ’em” when Momma Dee shows up like the stalking parent that she is. She calls herself a canine but I disagree. You are a cat. You got on the cowardly lion’s hairhat so… womp. She talks a bunch of nonsensical stuff and in walks Shay with no shame. Scrappy’s instigating ass mama ain’t shit, and she walks out to let them talk.

I just wanted to use this GIF of Momma Dee sipping wine  with a straw.

I just wanted to use this GIF of Momma Dee sipping wine with a straw.

Shay starts crying as she talks about how she still loves him and I need her to tuck in ALL of this salty. If someone shows you who they are, BELIEVE his yuck mouth. Scrap says “And I started thinking. With my brain.” Because you know, we can think with other organs. Pontificating negro. Shay gets shut down and she walks out heartbroken anew. Po’ thang.

No Sleepover, Bro – “Who lives in a pineapple in ATL?” SPONGEBOB BENZINO!!! Stevie goes to visit our non-favorite no-neck dude to talk about his lady problems. And then he asks if he can spend the night. ‘Zino tells him hell nawl, and he better go face Mimi. Stevie’s bitchassness is truly off the charts.

Flowers, Cards and Security – Stevie picks up roses and a present for Mimi before he gets home and when he does, she says she needs to talk. She tells him she’s moving out, and his dramatic ass starts dropping rose petals talmbout “She loves me, she loves me not.” Dude is a caricature of himself at this point. He goes from being apologetic to creepy with “You know I could find you, right?” And then he goes to anger as she gets up, packs her stuff and leaves. As she closes the door behind her, he tries to go after her but security picks him up like he’s a 5 year old riding an invisible bike.

Mimi drives away and the episode ends.

We all know at least ONE Mimi. Beloveds, let’s gather our sisterwomen and have stern talks with them. #LettucePray that they stop falling for the Stevies of the world and ending up in this perpetual cycle of losing. Amen.

So who gon join me for an intervention with Mimi? Also, who else is worried that Momma Dee wants to get with her own son? Something don’t curl all the way over with her.

    I missed the first 30 minutes tending to my bambino, so iLive for your recap.

    I want to know who told Scrappy’s mom that she’s Plato, she’s up there philosophizing using old song lyrics and even her son is confused. “Once Bitten, Twice Shy…” Scrappy’s like what??? Then when she tells him the reason she doesn’t like Erica (because she never called her mom like the rest of his hoes did) um cuh-razy much Ms. Mam!

    I can’t even watch Steebie anymore, it’s like he’s doing the faces more now since he saw how “popular” they were last season. Also, because of your recap last week. I cannot look at Benzino and unsee the T-Rex gif.

    1. that gif looks like Momma Dee might be a puppy riding on the short bus licking the window.

    2. everytime i see Shay all i can think is that YOU WERE ON FLAVA OF LUV flava of luv for goodness sakes. like icant take anything you do in LIFE seriously.

    3. i have no words for Mimi. i feel like if i comment on that situation im giving it life.

    4. why does it seem like people always asking BenzHELLno for advice?? what are his credentials other then being older then father time???

    I screamed when you said she was gonna break out in “Be Prepared.” I couldn’t control myself. That was just…gold.

    Mama Dee is being damn disrespectful to her son’s relationship. Scrappy at least seems to be on the up-and-up so far by distancing himself from Shay out of respect for his ‘financee’. (Shout out to Bernie Mac in House Party 3.) Why would he be out associating with the chick he left Erica for on national television last season? We ALL saw it happen. I wish I would catch my husband-to-be kicking it with his ex, one that still clearly wants him back.

    When Mama Dee stepped outta that caddy talking that slick ass pimp talk to Shay, I was like “Welp, she better get in that car on go make that money.” Next week, I got 20 on Mama Dee to whoop up on Erica’s ass. Not that Erica ain’t a tough chick, but Mama Dee is straight street life. She was a pimp and slung dope, and I’m sure had to beat a bitch ass a-time-or-twelve to get her money. That’s all she knows. Erica ain’t ready for that one.

    Mimi’s stupid, and Joseline was speaking that real. Every time she opened her mouth I was like, “But is she lying doe?” Cause she not. 15 years, Mimi. You thought moving in would help him to change? 15 YEARS, MIMI! As long as you keep condoning his behavior of being non-monogamous, he’ll continue to enjoy the fruits.

    First, I really need the GIF-gods to come thru and put Mama D’s face on a Scar gif singing Be Prepared….Amen.

    Can I also say that while Mimi does need someone to douse her in a bucket of common sense….is K.Michelle really that person?! I mean, K is good for a punchline at any time but advice for my life….me thinks not.

    I still stand by my comment last week about Shay. I feel like her entire life is a VH1 audition to be somebodies jump off. Le sigh. What makes it worse is I feel like Mama D is grooming her to hit the track. I mean her pimp game is on 1000 right now and Shay is about to be gettin that bread (in my steebie voice) for Mama D in short order.

    Am I the only one that thought Drew asking Traci to fund his boutique was insane?! To me that was only topped by the fact that she’s actually considering it. Uh sir, we are not together…I would fund my HUSBAND’s dreams because hey…we all we got…but you Mr/ Baby Daddy need to visit a bank. Especially since they made it seem like she’s fronted him money before and saw no benefits. *Mama D voice* Once bitten….

    Did anyone peep Steebie when Joseline kept asking bout her “Contrack”? He came out his tv character and showed the real Steebie: “Dont f@ckin ask me bout that contract again Joseline.” That ish gave me goosebumps and all I could say was, ” he beats her.” He said that ish wit his chest y’all! Ol punk ass.

    That Molly Maid line is HILARIOUS and I its added to my ratchet vocab but at least she has her own business, right? And Steebie scared me last night, I thought he was all talk, but when he lunged after MiMi, he turned into Ike Turner and I was like, RUN MIMI RUN, lol! Great recap as always, Luvvie!

    Let me start off by saying I want Drew gone! She is turn all the way up and the relationship ending 7 years ago! iCan’t.

    Momma Dee makes me think that she wants Shay. It is so weird that Shay would continue to embarrass herself for VH1. Maybe she should try Bravo cause she is getting nowhere fast on this network.

    I can’t wait to see Joseline every week…she plays Mimi to the left and it makes me smile. I can’t stand stupid women…and I want Mimi to STOP saying that she is trying to make things work because she has a daughter with him! The daughter is 3…what about the other 12 years?!! Why were you playing dumb during that time.

    I also find it strange that Joseline has a condo and yet Mimi is homeless. Jump-off living better than the main chicks these days. SMDH.

    I hope the next episode involves Mimi getting a lawyer and making a date with the Family Court or whatever Georgia got. Stevie showed some real live emotional abuse. From the “you don’t love me” bullshit to the “not with my daughter” bullshit, I’ve lived that scene my damn self and I can attest that it only gets worse. Wouldn’t be surprised if he tried to make another baby with her ass. He’s interested in ownership, period.And this camera staging is not going to help her. Her best move would have been to leave while he was out, not to sit around for a scene.

  21. […] 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 […]
