Recap Of ‘Love & Hip Hop Atlanta’ Reunion Part 2
As expected, the second installment of Love & Hip Hop Atlanta’s reunion show reached an all-time high of buffoonery. Picking back up from last week’s cliffhanger, show creator Mona Scott-Young sat down with the season’s tumultuous couple, rapper Rasheeda and her husband of 13 years, Kirk Frost, to discuss Kirk’s infidelity and shocking demand for Rasheeda to have an abortion because it was “bad timing.”
A nonchalant Kirk seemed unremorseful and practically made up excuses for his behavior, arguing that Rasheeda’s “Do You” attitude gave him the golden pass to sleep with other women. A scorned Rasheeda threw Benzino into the mix, blaming him for bringing Kirk to a cabin filled with groupies - or as Traci called them, “a bunch of popcorn hoes.” Benzino admitted that he did feel responsible for what went down, but maintains that he had no idea that the women would be there. Still, the blame was ultimately left where it should have been. “Realistically, it’s not really his fault, it’s Kirk’s fault,” Rasheeda said.
But Kirk seemed more interested in looking cool onstage in his tacky royal blue jacket and Big Bird yellow pants than trying to fix his crumbling marriage. Scott-Young all but forced him to apologize to Rasheeda, while Benzino tried to give Kirk some brotherly advice. “Get over there next to her, Kirk,” Benzino said, which Kirk stubbornly ignored. In a nutshell, the couple remains in a stalemate. Kirk still doesn’t seem to care and Rasheeda is still mad as hell - so mad she says she’s still considering filing for divorce. Guess there’s no happy ending in sight for their dying love.
There were also some surprises at the reunion, as Scrappy accused his baby mama Erica of sleeping with and getting pregnant by a married man, after she called him out for his pimpin’ ways. Despite the name-calling, Scrappy admitted that he’s still in love with Erica and is hoping to rekindle their relationship (good luck with that, bruh). But judging from the animosity between Scrappy’s mother, Momma Dee, and Erica and her mom, Mignon, this union looks like it’s virtually doomed as well.
In other shocking news, Mimi is still dating Stevie J ‘s lookalike, Nikko, who shot down Stevie’s accusation that the Rolex he gave Mimi was a knock off. The show then quickly turned into a battle of egos, as Stevie and Nikko nearly came to blows. Instead, it ended with Stevie making it rain (literally) on Nikko, throwing a wad of cash in the air. You really can’t make this stuff up.
Meanwhile, Karlie Redd stuck to her story that Benzino showed her a sex tape of Joseline, which inspired his music video for “Smash The Homies.” Though he denied ever sleeping with Joseline, what did come to light was that Karlie and Joseline weren’t the only cast members to be hit on by the rapper. A never-before seen clip of K. Michelle, Erica and Ariane revealed that creepy Benzino tried to get them all in between the sheets at one point or another. “He called me at 4 in the morning. I said ‘Who is this?’” K. Michelle revealed, while Erica revealed that Benzino asked her if she and Scrappy were still together.
The show concluded with Scott-Young confirming that K. Michelle would be leaving the show to join the New York cast this fall. Michelle also performed her hit single “V.S.O.P.,” before giving her farewell. “Thank ya’ll for dealing with me and this big ass mouth,” she said in tears. If only for a second, the entire cast was harmonious and seemed to have laid all the drama to rest.
Whether or not there will be a third season of Love & Hip Hop Atlanta remains to be seen, but what’s certain is that this season most definitely lived up to the hype.—Gerren Keith Gaynor (@MRGERRENALIST)
