[SIDEBAR: For the record, Mimi & Chris states they are NOT lezzz-buns on the latest installment of the show, when they claim since Chris identifies as male and Mimi identifies as female, they are not actually gay (click HERE if you missed that).]
Whatever the case, Gould opens up in a recent interview, revealing s/he was “born and raised” in Atlanta and s/he’s a personal injury paralegal with aspirations of making it in the music industry.
S/he’s taking his/her shot on the show seriously and in a recent interview, the handsome gent speaks candidly about his new lady love.
In a recent Q&A with VH1, Chris opens up about her life and love and gives a little insight into why s/he joined LHHATL.
On how s/he met Mimi, Gould states:
I met Mimi at a club through a mutual friend who had invited me out because Mimi had a booking. I was in her VIP and after the club was over, she pulled me to the side and she was just like, “I find you intriguing.” I was like, “Oh, okay.” [Laughs]
They had an after party at Mimi’s house and at the after party, we just kept always separating, just me and her, in conversation. It was just us two, and it kinda went from there.
Gould claims s/he doesn’t watch tv, so s/he didn’t know much about Mimi prior to meeting her.
The most that I knew was the obvious things, the sex tape and that she was on Love & Hip Hop. That was the main two things that I knew about her.
Gould adds that while s/he was well aware of the tape, s/he didn’t end up watching it until AFTER they were a couple.
I felt like I needed to see it because it was like the elephant in the room. I’m not going to lie to you, it was awkward.
Gould also speaks about Mimi’s past relationships and how s/he didn’t want to become involved in all Faust’s ‘drama’…
I definitely didn’t want to get involved with that stuff. I’ll tell you I had a very new perspective from it. At first, I just wanted to hit. [Laughs] It kind of progressed from there.
We had this connection, from the few years she spent in Atlanta as a child, we found out we grew up in the same apartment complex. You go in with one thought process and then you get to know somebody and then it kind of comes with the territory. But hell yeah, nobody wanted to deal with that craziness at all.
We went Halloween decoration shopping with Eva, and I’ve never dated anybody with a child, so I did have this moment of, this is for real. Like, a real life relationship.
The ironic part? We came home and Nikko is waiting outside of her house.
Her homegirl was at the house and was like, Nikko’s outside. We come and we pull up and he kinda forcefully goes, “I wanna talk to you,” and I allowed those two to have closure. I wanna say at that moment I felt like it was real because I respected her so much I was so concerned. I was in the house concerned is he…even though I’m a buck twenty, I’m like, I’ll jump on this guy if he does anything wrong. I think that was the first inkling of like, okay, we’re together.
They asked if I wanted to do the show and I was like, “Yeah and tell the whole world that’s my woman.” That’s the gist of it.
I was down for it because I don’t think anybody’s ever seen somebody like me on TV.
Everybody’s different… and yet they’re all the same. *sigh*
Money talks and I’m sure Gould will be using the LHHATL platform to release a mixtape or start a STUD clothing line soon enough. But I digress.
Meanwhile, you can watch her each week on the popular docu-drama known as Love & Hip Hop Atlanta.
