After enduring a rocky year in her personal and professional life, Joseline Hernandez is making time for herself and focusing on self-reflection. However, the challenges are far from over as she is faced with having to support Stevie J while he works to rebuild his music career and leave life in the fast lane behind to avoid jail time.
Nikko and his wife are about to pimp MiMi Faust for all her sex tape money… *sigh*
After her tumultuous breakup with Nikko, Mimi Faust is ready to redeem her career and her personal life. Her company MF Management recently gained two new rap artists Jessica “Dimepiece” and Tiffany Foxx.
As Mimi tries to represent both women, she will get caught in a fierce rivalry between these two tough and opinionated artists determined to stay at the top.
Since his separation with Mimi, Nikko has reunited with his secret wife Margeaux. However, she is struggling to forgive her estranged husband for his relationship with Mimi Faust. Nikko, on the other hand, is finding it hard to stay away from Mimi.
Kirk and Rasheeda who were just boo’d up on instagram with their son yesterday, are still ‘turning up’ for a realty show check…
Rasheeda & Kirk Frost’s relationship seems to be back on the right track after an emotional year but when a sexy new female artist named Ashley Nicole comes on the scene, will Kirk resort to his old “I do me” ways?
And the rest of the main characters are as follows:
Karlie Redd is a triple threat- actress/ business woman/ and recording artist- and is feeling on top of the world right now. She is all about her business, proudly “married to her checks” and over her relationship with Yung Joc.
Yung Joc is rebounding well after his break up with Karlie Redd. Now working on his music career, Joc has his hands full as he works to provide for his children and their mothers without losing his current girlfriend Khadiyah.
Lil Scrappy is officially out of the dog house with his girlfriend Bambi and is focusing on proving himself as an artist. But the calm is short-lived as drama heats up between him and Erica Dixon as they battle over support for their daughter. Meanwhile, Momma Dee is wrapped up in her own love story as she reunites with her ex-husband Ernest, who has spent the last 7 years in prison.
A very pregnant Kalenna is ready to pop out her new album and her new baby in the next few months! However, she is plagued with anxiety as she and Tony struggle with their finances.
