VH1’s Love and Hip-Hop Atlanta is set to air in a few days and the cast celebrated with a premiere party for the new season of the show last week (June 13, 2012).

I’m trying my best to hold my tongue about this show because CLEARLY it is purely for entertainment, but I just wish there were some better representations of Atlanta on the show.
That being said, I’ll let y’all draw your own conclusions. But after watching a sneak peek of the premiere episode, I see umma have to hold my tongue and just let the cast get that VH1 dough.
Watch the FULL premiere episode below + Funky Dineva’s assessment of the tomfoolery…
A few things of note about this first episode…
Mama Dee (Lil Scrappy’s Mom) will be the Mama Jones of the Atlanta cast. She’s already got a few catch phrases that I’m sure we’ll be hearing all season…. even though I can’t recall right now what they were.
I can honestly see Mama Dee as the only true beneficiary of this show but we’ll have to just wait and see.
Lil Scrappy and his baby mama Erica Dixon’s story is a bit cliche. She’s the baby mama who says she’s more than a baby mama (but what is her occupation?).
Scrappy apparently left her at some point to be publicly with Diamond (formerly of Crime Mob). As you know, Diamond was one of the original cast members pegged for LHH ATL but she quit when Scrappy and his mom came aboard.
Even with that… they spoke Diamond’s name at least 10 times throughout the premiere episode! I hope she got a check or at least a few t-shirts for the mentions.
Rasheeda and Kirk were pretty much null and void during this initial episode, so we’ll have to wait and see about their drama. Hopefully they kept it all under wraps.
And Stevie J and Mimi Faust either don’t give a flying f*ck about what their child will think about their “drama” playing out on television OR they’re practicing their acting. Either way… it’s all bad!
Especially considering… the chick he’s supposedly creeping with is a dude!
I swear Joseline is a dude and no one will EVER convince me otherwise!
Someone already spilled the tea to Sandra Rose saying there’s proof out there that Joseline is a MAN and don’t even get me started about what the “queens on the street” are saying…
As I said on twitter when I was watching the episiode, I predict Mona Scott-Young will pull a “Crying Game” ending on y’all this year… and if Stevie J. acts like he didn’t know he was boning a tranny we will ALL be giving him the side-eye (as if we aren’t already).
Funky Dineva summed it all up for you. If you need a lil comic relief… PRESS PLAY:
