When “Love & Hip Hop: Atlanta” star Benzino was shot during his mother’s funeral processional by his nephew—how’s that for family dysfunction?— fans of the show were convinced that would be the most controversial story arc of the upcoming season.
They were wrong.
Mimi Faust, the long suffering ex-girlfriend of producer Stevie J., and her fiance Nikko Smith are releasing a sex tape via Vivid Entertainment and the super trailer went super viral within hours.
Former “LHHATL” co-star K. Michelle had a “good laugh” about the tape, posting the following video to Instagram:
Faust’s nemesis, Stevie J’s wife Joseline Hernandez, also mocked the tape on Twitter, calling it “Granny Porn.”
Faust responded to the controversy by posting the contact information for her publicist with a big “thank you” to everyone for the attention.
THANK YOU!!! 😘 http://t.co/PFFA17oSt3

Through all of the judgement, and there has been a lot, there are voices pointing out the double standard that becomes evident when a Black woman releases a sex tape versus when a White woman does the exact same thing.
We’re talking about you Kim Kardashian, Paris Hilton and Pamela Anderson, et al.
Faust is an adult and if she wants to film herself having sex with her significant other, that’s really her business—and the business of whoever chooses to watch it.
In the meantime, there’s a certain shower rod scene that’s getting the most attention.
Warning: Do not try that at home.
Season 3 of “Love & Hip Hop Atlanta” premieres Mon, May 5 at 8:00 P.M. ET.
