‘Love and Hip Hop Atlanta’ has made a huge buzz on the airways, with their high ratings and their outrages story lines. One of the most dysfunctional story lines has to be the love triangle between producer Stevie J, his on and of again girlfriend Mimi and his artist/mistress Joseline. Everything came unraveling when Joseline got pregnant and Stevie j was forced to admit his cheating, even though it was clear to all of us within the first few episodes. They didn't make much of an effort to hide it and everyone was appalled by the blatant disrespect toward Mimi. On the latest episodes Mimi started to get harassing messages from her before they sat down for a woman-to-woman talk. Meanwhile, off screen, Joseline has been flaunting a ring on twitter and acting as though she and Stevie J are now engaged.
Mimi recently called in to IPower 92 to chat with TT Torrez to clear up some misconceptions about her relationship and the show.
Check out the highlights below:
On whether she knew Stevie J was cheating on her
I knew something was going on, I just didn’t know what …we actually started the show maybe a month after I found out about what was going on. [..] I don’t go through his phone but I just know that ‘Big Homie’ was calling him all the damn time. For people who are judging and saying, ‘you’re so stupid and blah blah blah,’ I did not know. When he tells me ‘Baby I’m going to work, I’m not running behind him, [saying] who are you with? What are you doing? Who’s at the studio? I’m at home raising my daughter, so I didn’t know.
On how she met Stevie
I’ve known Stevie for 15 years, we have had an on and off again relationship. I was not with Stevie when he was in any other relationship. I was not with Stevie when he had all of his kids.
On why she agreed to sit down with Joseline
I didn’t feel the need, that was for y’all entertainment, lets be clear [laughs]
On why she goes to therapy with Stevie
The therapy was his idea because he wanted to get back on a page, you know he was still telling me ‘I want my family’ and blah blah ‘this is just business’ ‘This is just work’ ‘Please lets just work this out’ ‘I love you’ and blah blah. I have a two year old with this man so I saw him try to make an effort to keep his family together, so that’s why I agreed to go to therapy.
On whether she plans on getting back with him
[Long silence] You’ve got to tune in Monday night VH1 8pm [laughs]
Oh God! Come on. Stop it [laughs]
On Stevie J as a father
Crazy enough his great with the baby. He is great with her — like when they are together it’s like crazy. I asked him this question; ‘You have three girls, what example are you setting for your three daughters? Would you want one of your daughters to that does what you do to women? Would you want that for your girls? I propose this question to him all the time
On whether she still sleeping with Stevie J
Sleeping with who?
On whether she still loves him
I’d be lying to you if I said I didn’t.
On whether her would be enough to keep her and her daughter going if she decided to quit the show
Absolutely. I have a high end  service, I do residential and and I also do detailed cleanings. I don’t just go in and clean your home. That’s the misconception I’ve had. They call me a maid. I do organizing, I do your . I’m more of the organizing side of things than just cleaning. I’ve had my business for 11 years, so this isn’t just something that I just started, I’ve been doing this for years.
On whether she has been able to seek therapy to help her sort through her personal life
No, I haven’t but that’s something that I absolutely need to do and I’ve been wanting to do.
On whether she is really friends with Karlie Redd
When you say friend that word is thrown around loosely, I think that that’s a misconception. There’s people that you know and people that you kick it with but ‘friend’, she uses that word real loose and a friend of mine would not do what she has done and is still doing. I watched the show yesterday and she said something real slick yesterday and I was like ‘Really?’
On Karlie Redd’s relationship with Benizo
Some of us are opportunists and they gotta do what they gotta do
I'm not sure if it's Reality Tv that is getting raw or if this just this show that is a total wreck. Regardless, I know everyone will continue to tune in, I can't even imagine what's in store.
