Mimi Faust is finally giving Nikko the side-eye for basking in the glow of their ‘leaked’ sex tape, Benzino and Stevie J. hold an opening for their ‘Sleazy-Zino’s’ restaurant which was marred in violence after a few cast members popped off (click HERE if you missed that)
And oddly enough, ‘reality’ has finally entered the picture this season as a real life situation is added to the plot.
Waka Flocka Flame’s brother, KayO Redd committed suicide last year and his mom, Deb Antney deals with his untimely death by launching a “NoRIP’ internet campaign.
Recap + watch the full episode below…
Benzino is ready to jump the broon and is planning on giving Thi-Thi a ring soon…. BUT WAIT! It seems that Althea has been ‘loving the crew’! It’s revealed in this episode that she’s ‘kicked it’ with Nikko (Mimi’s porn-star boyfriend) and may have even been with Stevie J a time or two or three.
Being that Joseline is already giving Althea the side-eye, you can almost bet money that the two of them are gonna clash once that information trickles down to their little clique.
Scrappy meets Da Bambi out for a little chat and she’s still not too happy about his ‘friendship’ with Erica Pinkett.
Bambi tells him that she’s not used to being involved in such a tangled web of mess and it seems that she’s ready to bounce. Scrappy, for what it’s worth, doesn’t seem to care if she stays or leaves.
Kirk and Rasheeda:
Kirk feels vindicated this week. If you recall, Kirk feels ‘some kinda way’ about his mom in-law constantly kissing his new infant son, Karter, on the lips.
Of course, the doctor agrees that an infant’s system is sensitive and that NO ONE should be kissing him in the mouth. Case closed.
Meanwhile, Kirk gives Rasheeda grief about her planned girls get-away. Apparently he’s concerned that the ladies are going to get too ‘turnt up’ and will be in NOLA doing things like baring their boobs for beads.
Rasheeda leaves rolling her eyes and shaking her head, wondering why Kirk is acting like it’s such a big deal for him to watch his own son!
Karlie Redd & Yung Joc
Karlie Redd and Yung Joc have decided to work things out but it seems like Karlie is still hung up on Benzino.
Karlie and Erica attend the opening of Benzino & Stevie J’s restaurant and it seems she only came to cause trouble. First… she comes without her new boyfriend and tells Kirk something about wanting to be in Benzino’s presence. Then… she brings up the size of Benzino’s ‘package’ but it was clearly good enough when she thought SHE was getting a ring.
What ever the case, you can compare Joc & Zino’s packages and judge who’s ‘slackin’ and who’s ‘packin’ for yourself. (CLICK HERE for Yung Joc’s ‘leaked’ pics & CLICK HERE for Benzino’s ‘leaked’ pics).
Mimi and Nikko:
Mimi and Nikko celebrate their one-year anniversary with a party and Mimi feels ‘some kinda way’ when her new BFF introduces them as ‘Atlanta’s newest Porn couple’.
Nikko takes the mic to say a few words and Mimi is disturbed how much he’s basking in the limelight of their upcoming sex tape, stating: “Let the judgment begin!”
Waka Flocka Flame & Tammy
For the first time ever, it seems that LHHATL has added ‘real life’ to the storyline as Waka’s family deals with the death of his brother, KayO Redd.
Waka can’t deal with the pain, so he leaves it all up to his mom, Miss Debb, who reflects on her son’s life and reveals how KayO was stressed about stories he’d read on the internet. Antney says after KayO’s death, she found his computer and saw how he’d spent a lot of time defending rumors about she and Waka online.
In an effort to appease her son’s untimely death, Antney launches a ‘NoRIP’ campaign, which stands for ‘No Reckless Internet Posting’. Their mission is explained on their website, which states:
Deb and her family have a tumultous relationship with some blogs and media – many of which have sensationalized stories for the popularity of their sites. With disregard for the validity of these rumors, blogs and media have often posted recklessly about so many people’s lives – without a care in the world about how these people and their families are adversely affected. Sometimes, these adverse affects are tragic and irreversable. Unfortunately for Deb and her fmaily, this was the case. Determined to make sure the world hears her son’s silenced voice; to encourage and stand up for those in similar positions, and to envoke change for the positive in the media and in the global online community, Deb was moved by her experience to make a difference.
In every test, there lies a testimony. Through all adversity, there is a lesson to be learned. And in cleaning up the mess around us, often times you’ll find a message. For Deb, and those who identify with this cause, the testimony, the lesson and the message is simple: NO RECKLESS INTERNET POSTING. No R.I.P.
