The 5 life lessons revealed this week + watch the full episode #10 below…
Life Lesson #1 – ‘You just do you… umma do me!’
“I’m tired of raising my kids, I’m tired of commitments, I’m just gonna do me. I’m gonna do Kirk!”
Last week, Rasheeda told Kirk to “DO YOU!” and he totally took the works to heart. Kirk latches on to Benzino as he complains to his new buddy about his wife’s new music video.
Everyone agrees the video was inappropriate for a pregnant woman but I’m assuming it all just added to the fake drama factor.
Kirk and Benzino take a ‘boys trip’ to Lake Lanier to chillax with Bobby Valentino and a few notable thirsty chicks like Bambi (Basketball Wifes L.A.) and Alexis Miller aka “Mary Jane.”
To her credit, Mary Jane has been tryna get “on” for a minute now, first by filing stalking charges against Shaquille O’Neal then by joining Memphitz’ cast of Mistresses of Atlanta (which is still being shopped).
Now she’s finally found her way to Love & Hip Hop Atlanta as she “plays” Kirk Frost’s new side chick.
Life Lesson #2 – Men always want what they can’t have…
For some odd reason DJ Traci Steele seems surprised to learn that her baby daddy DJ Babey Drew is interested in her now that she has her eyes on another dude.
He says he wants her to be happy… but not with “that guy”. I’m not buying Drew’s act… at all. Especially since he has another baby mama (who happens to have been the chick sitting in his apartment when Traci brought that check over a few weeks back).
Maybe Drew has his reasons for playing with Traci’s emotions but I suspect he just wants her because she’s finally “acting” like she doesn’t want him.
Life Lesson #3 – Father-daughter relationships are one of the most important in a girl’s life.
Like Chris Rock once said… it’s a father’s only goal in life to keep his daughter “off the pole”. The father/daughter relationship builds a young girl’s self esteem and pretty much determines how she relates with men throughout her life.
Lil Scrappy’s relationship with his daughter seems like it’s first and foremost in his life and the talk he had with her about his returning to jail (on probation violation charges), proves he values her above all else.
Scrappy’s eyes fill with tears as he has a heartfelt conversation with Emani about his situation and she asks “Are you sure you have to go back?”
“I don’t want you to go. It’s a bad place,” she says. “You have to stand up all night and face the wall.”
Life Lesson #4 – His side chick’s his main chick cause his main ho ain’t feelin’ him no mo…
Joseline hits the studio (for the first time this season) but she’s not there to record new music. Her visit consists of something a lot more personal… JoJo’s on a mission to get Steebie to put a ring on it!
“I think it’s about time for him to put that ring in this ass.”
JOEseline apparently wants the world to know she’s the main chick and not a side piece (no mo… no mo *Trinidad James voice*).
I don’t think JoJo’s found out about Mimi Faust’s new vehicle yet…. as if it would matter anyway.
“Naturally, she wants to be seen as my main chick but…who wouldn’t?” Stevie says in response to her crying.
Joseline proclaims that she won’t give up 15 years of her life (like Mimi did) and he promises… “You won’t have to.”
Right about now we can cue the rumor that Joseline & Stevie J got married and she’s joining The Real Housewives of Atlanta
Life Lesson #5 – Married women shouldn’t take relationship advice from single friends…
If we’ve heard it once we’ve heard it a thousand times…. taking relationship advice from someone who’s never been married is like a pilot getting flying instructions from a bus driver. It just won’t fly!
Rasheeda joins all her random on-air single friends for a baby shower and they all inquire about her relationship with her husband Kirk. He seems to be the topic these days online and off and clearly the couple are in on the farce together.
“I will tell you this, anything that’s going on in the dark, it will come to the light,” Rasheeda says. (which is probably why they two were posted up together in L.A. last weekend. (click HERE if you missed that) We’ve all been enlightened that they are still together for the long haul!) *sigh*
