Rodney Ho of the AJC also recapped the episode, stating:
Sometimes, the ?drama? manufactured on ?Love and Hip Hop Atlanta? feels manufactured.
Case in point in episode three: Karlie ?I?m so psyched to have a story line? Redd is in the studio waiting for her boyfriend Yung Joc, They are about to move in together. She?s suspicious of his behavior and wondering if he is being faithful.
Who?s baby is that, part 1: Kirk was wondering if Rasheeda?s baby was his. So he secretly did a DNA test. For drama, he had his friend Benzino open the results? and voila! It IS his. He is so excited, he says he?d like another baby with Rasheeda, than flirts with the waitress. The guy can?t keep his head straight, can he? Since he hadn?t told Rasheeda bout the DNA test, Benzino burns it. So I?m sure he said nothing about it to her ? until she saw this episode. I?m sure that argument will be fun.
Who?s baby is that, part 2: Scrappy?s boys can swim! He got Bambi knocked up after she tells him she loves him but he doesn?t return the favor. Before the baby news, he was sending inappropriate texts to a new Erica called Erica P. She invited him over to her place, candles and all, and seduced him. He was tempted. Oh, he was tempted. But miracle of miracles, he kept it in his pants.
Benzino?s got a new girlfriend: Benzino and his gal Althea show up together to Stevie J?s home. Joseline, before seeing her, is suspicious, wonders if she is for real. When she meets Althea, she decides she is truly in love with Benzino and vice versa. They are quite lovey dovey.
Erica?s new (broke a**?) squeeze: Erica, Scrappy?s ex, has a new boyfriend, a model named O?Shea. They have a bowling date with Yung Joc and Karlie. O?Shea insists he?s going to pay in front of Yung Joc and Karlie, then asks Erica for her credit card. Seriously? Erica says he hasn?t had much work lately so she is fronting for him ? for now.
Mimi and the sex tape story gets advanced only a little: Mimi gets angry when Nikko tells her he told Stevie J about the sex tape sale. She is so upset, she gets out of the car in the middle of the road and walks away ? for dramatic effect. (I?m sure someone picked her up or the production crew escorted her to her nearest destination.)
For the record… I’m highly disappointed in this season. The ‘ratchetness’ is way to manufactured. The LEAST they could do over at VH1 is get this crew some better acting coaches. I’m just saying…
