MiMi Talks Threesome With Joseline And Stevie J

MiMi Talks Threesome With Joseline And Stevie J

( 4UMF NEWS ) MiMi Talks Threesome With Joseline And Stevie J:

The Hip-Hop Socialite recaps the hottest celebrity news and gossip of the last week, and drops a few exclusives….

Bobby Brown Joining Cast Of Real House Husbands Of Hollywood?

When La La Vazquez-Anthony posted pictures on Instagram of her, J.B. Smoove, and Bobby Brown on the set of Real House Husbands of Hollywood, it instantly sparked speculation that the R&B icon would be joining the cast of the hit BET show next season.

Since Bobby appeared in the original ‘RHOH‘ skit that aired during the 2011 BET Awards, the assumption that he’d officially become a part of the show wasn’t an unreasonable one. As someone who finds Bobby very entertaining, I was excited over the possibility of watching him alongside J.B., Kevin Hart, Duane Martin, Boris Kodjoe, and Nick Cannon every week. Before getting ahead of myself though, I reached out to Bobby’s manager-wife, Alicia Etheridge.

In an email to me, Alicia confirmed that we can expect to see Bobby on the show next season…but only for a few episodes. She said, “Bobby will be a guest on 2 episodes next season. He really enjoyed working with the cast and crew.”

Well there you go. Bobby hasn’t officially joined the ‘RHOH’ cast, but hopefully, that will change. Personally, I think the show would be a perfect fit for him.

First Look: Jesse L. Martin As Marvin Gaye!!

In a case of perfect casting, former Law & Order star Jesse L. Martin will portray Marvin Gaye in Sexual Healing, a biopic about the late Motown legend. I’m over the moon that this movie is finally coming to fruition, and to add to my excitement, a picture of Jesse in the role has just hit the net!

In the image, Jesse appears to have recreated the cover of Marvin’s iconic 1971 album, What’s Going On. Check out a side-by-side comparison of Marvin’s original album cover and Jesse’s recreated version above.

Sexual Healing focuses on the later years of Marvin Gaye’s life during which he put his past drug abuse behind him and wrote his hit song, Sexual Healing, while living in Europe. The film also stars S. Epatha Merkerson, as Marvin’s Gaye’s mother, Alberta Cooper Gay, and Dwight Henry (Beasts of the Southern Wild) as Marvin’s father, Marvin Gay, Sr., who fatally shot his son after an argument in 1984. I haven’t been this excited to see a movie since….wait, if I tell you that, then you’d be able to figure out my real age.

MimiFaust

Threesomes, Karlie Redd’s Age, #HeyMade T-shirts, And Mediatakeout: Mimi Faust Tells All!!

One of my guilty pleasures is Monday nights on VH1, and that has a lot to do with Love & Hip-Hop Atlanta. Since the last season of the New York version of the show was so disappointing, I was hopeful that its Atlanta counterpart would make up for what the New York version was lacking….and the Atlanta cast hasn’t disappointed!!! So far, there’s been a dinner table altercation (Erica, Scrappy, and Momma Dee), scheming (Momma Dee and Shay), and candle throwing (K Michelle). There’s so much drama going on, they may as well make the show’s security team official members of the cast because they have to run out so much to break stuff up!!!!

As the season progresses, I want to interview as many members of the cast as I can. We started with Benzino in last week’s edition of this column, and this week, it’s Mimi Faust (one of my favorites on the show) who’s giving me the scoop!!

During the interview (which actually turned into me yukking it up like I was talking to one of my girlfriends), Mimi was an open book – she answered most of my questions, which pretty much were aimed at getting to the bottom of all the rumors and gossip that’s being reported on the blogs (cough, cough Mediatakeout). Anyway, I know you don’t want to hear anymore of what my big mouth has to say, so highlights from my interview with Mimi are below.

Q: ON HER SEXY MAID PHOTO SHOOT:

A: “She [Joseline] wants to call me a maid in every scene; she’s called me a maid and ‘Molly the maid’. So I figure let me capitalize off of it. I did a photo shoot, got t-shirts printed up. But I’m not a maid in that sense – I’m made as I’m a made woman, m-a-d-e. I’m made that way, so I have my own business, I have for 13 years, I’m an entrepreneur, I’m a business woman. So she can joke all she wants to about me being a maid; I’m doing real sh*t, what are you doing girl?

Q: ON THE SPELLING OF ‘MADE’ ON THE T-SHIRTS:

A: “They think I, ‘oh Mimi, you can’t even spell. You made a typo.’ I’m like, ‘no I didn’t.’ But I can’t sit and explain it to every person on Twitter and Instagram. So I just leave it alone; they’ll figure it out. Maybe they’ll get it, maybe they won’t…I mean, but I don’t really care.”

ON WHETHER SHE THOUGHT K MICHELLE WAS GENUINE WHEN SHE APOLOGIZED FOR HITTING HER DURING ‘LHH ATLANTA’ SCREENING IN NYC:

A: “Yes, I did feel it was genuine because we actually had a conversation before that where she apologized to me. I wasn’t feeling it at that point. So when she did it again, I felt it was a little more genuine than the first. and then we sat and spoke after that as well so….she’s trying.”

Q: ON HER REACTION TO K MICHELLE AND RASHEEDA’S ALTERCATION AT HER HOUSEWARMING:

A: “You know, it’s just funny because I know that those two have had a feud for a while, I just didn’t think it would have gone that far. But K’s M.O. is picking something up and throwing it, like that’s her thing. So I was surprised, but not really.”

Q: ON WHY SHE APPEARED TO TAKE RASHEEDA’S SIDE AFTER THE ALTERCATION AT HER HOUSE WARMING:

A: “I just feel that you don’t handle a situation like that. You can have a conversation with someone without hitting, you know what I mean? So,in that aspect, yes, I just thought she [K Michelle) could've handled that a whole lot better, different. I thought it was uncalled for...like who throws a burning candle? Who does that?"

Q: ON RUMORS THAT SHE, JOSELINE, AND STEVIE J WERE ALL IN A RELATIONSHIP TOGETHER AND HAD THREESOMES:

A: "That's a complete fabrication, a complete bold-faced lie. None of that is true, none of it. Girl (laughs), Mediatakeout is the devil. For some reason, whoever is over that just has it out for me. I don't think they've ever printed one good story about me, ever. Always something crazy."

Q: ON JOSELINE NEITHER CONFIRMING OR DENYING THREESOMES WITH MIMI AND STEVIE DURING AN INTERVIEW LAST MONTH:

A: "She's good at that. She's good at saying half of something to make people believe this is what it is. She does it all the time. She'll say he bought her all this stuff and put it up on Instagram to make people think he did this. He wouldn't have bought her anything, she would've bought it herself, but she's does stuff like that all the time, so it doesn't surprise me."

Q: HER GREATEST FEAR ABOUT STEVIE AND JOSELINE'S RELATIONSHIP:

A: "There's no fear. I don't have a fear about them. Those two are going to do what they do, and it's going to end very badly, mark my words on that. And the whole world, we're going to watch it play out. So let's just keep watching. I don't have a fear about it. Just keep that girl away from my baby."

Q: HER HONEST OPINION ON IF SHE THINKS THERE WILL EVER BE A WEDDING FOR ERICA AND SCRAPPY:

A: "I think Erica and Scrappy have a lot of issues they need to get through before a wedding actually takes place. It's a lot of deep-rooted things as far his infidelities and the mother...there's some stuff they gotta work thorough before I see a wedding happening."

Q: ON IF JOSELINE HAS EVER BEEN AROUND HER AND STEVIE'S DAUGHTER:

A: "That's the thing, when I drop Eva off, or have the nanny drop Eva off, after that, when I leave or the nanny leaves, I don't know what happens. So I have to assume yes, she has been around Eva. I have to assume yes, so, as much as I might not want that, I have to assume yes. But I do know one thing's for sure is she's fighting for his affection with a 3-year-old, which is completely stupid to me. She's jealous of the baby because the baby gets more attention than she does when the baby's around. Well that's his daughter; like grow up girl."

Q: ON HOW SHE KNOWS JOSELINE IS JEALOUS OF HER AND STEVIE'S DAUGHTER:

A: "He's told me. But I know him, he's a great father, and if he's around, and he's always around, he's not going to let her do anything to my daughter. Disrespect Eva...that's not going down. That little girl is like, when I say the love of his life, so I'm not worried in that aspect. She's just very inappropriate damn near all the time, so that's the part I don't want around Eva. I don't think any child should be around that woman."

Q: ON IF SHE GETS A CUT OF STEVIE J'S BUSINESS LIKE SHE DEMANDED DURING SEASON 1 (INCLUDING WHAT HE MAKES OFF JOSELINE):

A: "And how. Yes."

"Hold on. When she goes on the road, and comes home and drops him off money, he tells me to come pick it up. 'Come get this money ma. She just got back and dropped it off. Come get this money.' I'll be right there, thank you very much sir."

Q: ON KARLIE REDD'S AGE:

A: "I don't know actually how old she is, but I do know I lived in LA many, many, many years ago, and we kicked it together many, many, many years ago. So she's gotta be around my age [Mimi's 41-years-old]…you gotta be. You weren’t 11 or 12 when we were hanging out…come on.”

Whew!! As much as I love when people give me the scoop, even I was overwhelmed from all that.

Outside of ‘LHH’ and a booming cleaning business, Mimi is currently working on a kids’ clothing and accessory line inspired by her cutie pie daughter, and a home organizer product line. Be sure to tune in to catch all the drama of Love & Hip-Hop Atlanta every Monday night at 8 pm on VH1!!

BowWow

Bow Wow Replacing Rick Ross As Reebok Spokesperson?

Now that Rick Ross has been dropped by Reebok, it’s been widely reported that the athletic apparel giant is on the hunt for a new celebrity that will attract the urban market (that’s code for black folk and Latinos). According to rumors, Reebok may be eyeing former child rapper Bow Wow to fill the job.

Although I don’t think Bow Wow is as big a draw as the “Bawse”, he does have the advantage of daily exposure on national television as one of the hosts of BET’s 106 & Park. He also probably doesn’t scare the white folk as much as Rick. Although the job entails attracting the urban market, it’s probably a perk if you don’t scare the hell out of white folk in the process. I’m just saying.

Anyway, Reebok has not made an official announcement or confirmation, but that hasn’t stopped Bow Wow from letting everyone know something’s brewing between him and the Massachusetts-based company. On April 22, Bow Wow took to his Facebook page to tell his fans and supporters that he had a meeting with the shoe company. Last weekend, the 26-year-old retweeted posts from the Twitter pages of blogs that reported on a potential union between he and Reebok, and recently, Bow Wow was photographed on the set of 106 & Park sporting a pair of Reebok Answer 1s, which won’t be available to us mere mortals until later this month.

Rick Ross Says He’s Not Engaged

Earlier this week, rumors swirled that Rick Ross was engaged to his longtime girlfriend, fashion designer Shateria L. Moragne-el. According to reports, the hip-hop star got down on one knee and presented Shateria with a $500,000 ring (bling bling!!) on May 5.

These two seem like a perfectly happy couple whenever they grace a red carpet together, but as the buzz surrounding their “engagement” got louder, Rick took to Twitter to squash the rumors, saying, “I’m flattered by the rumors but … the Boss is still single ladies!”

Shateria took to her own Twitter page to dismiss the engagement talk as well, tweeting, “Don’t believe everything you read. Have a great day!”

Well I had a great day, but I’m sure Rick’s was anything but when she saw that last part of his tweet!
