summer shows love and hip-hop

In German folklore, Faust made a deal with the devil. An academic dissatisfied with his life (not to mention his failed suicide attempt), he barters his eternal being in exchange for unlimited knowledge and delights of the flesh. Mimi Faust, on the other hand, made a deal with Vivid Entertainment, and the Love and Hip Hop: Atlanta star is raking in the money--though she has some regrets, too. According to Us Weekly, the reality star has admitted that the sex tape she and her ex-boyfriend Nikko London released earlier this year was staged from the beginning. Initially claiming it had been stolen from London's bag at an airport and leaked against her wishes (and that the couple had begrudgingly shot extra scenes to fill out the distribution company's time requirements), Faust now tells fans that it was planned all along. “We had to say something,” allows Faust. “I didn’t tell anybody the truth.”

The tape has garnered both Faust and London significant attention, as well as income in excess of $400,000. However, the ex-wife of producer Stevie J is not satisfied with her decision to release the tape. She says it's "still a big regret" and adds, "I wish I could take it back." Faust also told the publication that she realized London, who was married to another woman throughout their relationship, was constantly trying to film their sex. “Every time I would go to Nikko’s place, there would be a camera and a tripod in front of the bed at all times,” she says. “You know how you get that gut feeling? I didn’t listen to my gut instinct. I kind of just shoved it to the side.”
