[FLASHBACK: RECAP: LHHATL S3, Ep 11 (FULL VIDEO)]
The day has finally come for Mimi and Nikko’s sex tape release and it seems that everyone feels exactly the same way about the situation.
VH1 posed a few pertinent questions about this episode in their synopsis:
Wait, did Althea really think she had to apologize because she was at a “apology party”? Will Kirk and Mrs. Shirleen stay in good graces? Will Joseline be able to maintain her career without the help of Stevie J? Is Erica Pinkett really want a friend who did what Scrappy did? How entertaining we’re the cast interactions to the sextape? Didn’t it seem like Nikko and Mimi weren’t telling the truth about the production of the tape? Whatttttt is going on?
Recap + watch the full episode of Love & Hip Hop Atlanta Season 3, Episode 12 below…
JOJO needs a break
Joseline Hernandez is mad as hell and she’s not gonna take it anymore. While Stevie J. stands by his claim that he and Althea never smashed, Joseline is tired of his lies and wants to take a break from all of the drama in the A.
So what does she do? She calls Whasserface in NYC to plan an impromptu getaway.
Stevie J. tries to stop his ‘wife’ from walking out but JoJo is determined to go.
No worries though… after the horrible performance footage we’ve seen these past few days (click HERE if you missed that), Joseline will be right back on Stevie’s bus in no time at all.
Apology Party Gone Wrong
Kirk Frost hosts a huge ‘I’m Sorry’ Party in he and Rasheeda’s front lawn and invites all of their LHHATL friends and family members. Rasheeda’s mom sits front row center as Kirk offers his sincere apology for everything he’s done over the past year to hurt his wife.
I would never knock the couple’s hustle, but I honestly believe all of it was just for the check. Kirk and Rasheeda have been together for over 18 years and neither is going anywhere anytime soon.
But I digress.
Erica seems a pit perturbed by it all even though it wasn’t her battle to fight. When Althea offers her apology Erica makes it known that she’s ready, willing and able to turn up and turn out if necessary. On the other hand, Karlie makes a point of telling Althea that she has dirt on her and she needs to be careful about burning any more bridges with the crew.
Mama Dee Knows Best…or does she?
Just last week, the screen faded to black in what seemed like a violent altercation between the two and while Scrappy didn’t admit putting dem paws on Erica Pinkett, it’s clear whatever he did hurt her pretty bad.
Mama Dee gets involved (yet again) in Scrappy’s love life and makes him sit face to face with Erica P. The two have been friends for quite a while and Scrappy admits he crossed the ‘friend’ line a time or two.
It seems he cares for Erica P. but not in the way she cares for him. Whatever the case, the two make amends as they each apologize for things said in anger.
It’s finally D-Day for Mimi & Nikko as their sex tape is released for distribution and one by one, we see their fellow cast members cringe as they review the footage.
The x-rated couple are interviewed by VLADTv about their sex tape release and the couple are asked about the cameraman who filmed the footage.
VIDEO: Mimi & Niko Discuss ‘Leaked’ Sex Tape
Of course common sense would dictate that there’s a 3rd, 4th or even a 5th person in the room as Mimi and Nikko perform their acrobatic sex acts but they each stick to their story even when given the opportunity to come clean.
The couple is adamant that the video was filmed by them with a camera on a tripod and a handheld camera but
Vlad says the videography is too slick and with all the different camera angles it’s clear the video was professionally done.
Again… Nikko and Mimi deny deny deny and Nikko even goes as far as to say that the camera movement came when they literally “shook the room.”
