Love and Hip-Hop Atlanta has faced a growing number of criticisms about it’s cast and storyline.
After airing it’s first episode last week, several essays and petitions popped up which protested the stereotypes portrayed and many still question the sexual identity of
Joseph Joseline Hernandez, who is Stevie J’s artist/jumpoff.
As if on que…. during episode #2 Joey
At any rate, during last night’s episode
Joseph Joseline reveals she’s knocked up by the producer, who happens to be torn between his tranny artist and his 15 year relationship with MiMi Faust, his daughter’s mother.

Rasheeda appears at length for the first time. She may be an independent rapper, but at home she’s a mom and wife to her husband of twelve years, Kirk, who is also her manager. The two don’t always see eye to eye on business.
Rasheeda loves “Legs to the Moon” as her first single while Kirk thinks “Marry Me” will be the bigger hit.
“I’m definitely more her servant than her manager or husband,” Kirk said. “It’s like I have to bend over backwards for her all the time to keep a smile on her face, and that’s probably some sucker s—, but I just do what I gotta do.”
Rasheeda and Kirk also get into after she arrives 2 hours late to her own video shoot. She shows up with an ATTITUDE and Kirk isn’t too happy about it.
MiMi confronts Stevie J about his relationship with Joseph Joseline:
“I want you to look me in my face and tell me, are you f—- this girl?” He says no, but laughs while saying it. But Mimi has a few tricks up her sleeve. She wants 10% from Joseline’s sales. As someone in the doghouse he can’t afford to decline her offer. Get that money, girl!
Its been 10 years since they’ve had a relationship. The tough conversation of her mom’s addiction and stint in prison lead to an emotional moment. Erica cries while talking about not getting letters from her and feeling like she wasn’t loved. Glad to see the two working on building that mother daughter relationship.
In the studio Joseline tells Stevie J she may be pregnant. His response, “We shouldn’t even have this conversation. Period.”
Mimi comes in to let Joseline know she’s now a business partner, and on that topic, Joseline thinks “Mimi don’t run nothing over here, and she don’t run nothing over there either.” And it looks like the decision was made by the new boss—Stevie J will be working with Karlie.
Scrappy breaks the news to Erica that he’s moving and getting his own place. Surprisingly, Erica is all for it. “I’m not against it, I’m for it,” she said.
[Sidebar: My favorite new term invited by Scrappy is "Tensin' me" - which means in ATL hood speak: Stressing me out!]
“You brought this to your manager?” he asks. She replies, “Who else am I supposed to take it to?” “You’re supposed to handle this off the rip,” Stevie said. Insensitive much, Stevie?
He proceeds to drill her about whose kid it is before she drops it on him, “I haven’t been f— nobody for the last six months but you,” she says. (Source)
Hold up wait… can men get pregnant?
Does Love & Hip-Hop Atlanta disturb you? or is it just ratchet enough to keep you interested?
