Relationship Drama By Mack Mama I thought I went through some drama in my past relationships, dealing with mental and physical abuse, down low drug addicts and straight up nut jobs. The debacle I dubbed my “Thug loves” have nothing on Reality TV relationships. Lets start with the newest Realty show “Love and Hip Hop Atlanta. I am overjoyed at some of the absurd characters on the show. I watch gleefully as the train wreck explodes on my flat screen. I just bought a 55inch so I can see these jokers in HD largeness. I am in my glory. Stevie J. the manipulating, cheating Rico Suave on the show, who also doubles as a music producer and Mi Mi Faust’s longtime boyfriend is down right sickening. I found myself shouting at my big screen “Nooo this fool didn’t!” “Mi Mi punch him in the face, girl!” and other obscenities that I won’t repeat in print. He is having a blatant affair with his artist Joceline Hernandez, who at one point, I thought was a pretty transvestite (she has a suspicious masculine look to her). Stevie had the audacity to get Joceline pregnant. Yes, on national TV in this day in time, he actually admitted to raw dogging it, with this female, who also happens to be an ex- stripper. Outrageous! Then, there is Lil Scrappy the southern rapper who hasn’t had a hit in a while, but is so adorable that I am rooting for his comeback. He was dumped and cheated on by Diamond, a female rapper who left him for Soulja Boy. The tables were turned, by a female, heartbreaker finally! K Michelle, who is my favorite personality, exposed her ex boyfriend Memphis Hitz as a woman abuser who spent two million dollars of her recording budget that was given to her by her record label. She was subsequently black balled in the industry and struggling to get her ten minutes, out of the fifteen minutes of fame, she had left. Drama, Drama, Drama isn’t that what we tune in for? It is great to take a break from our reality and view “Reality” played out by others. I wish I could get paid for the heartbreak and headaches I have dealt with throughout the years, like these folks who collect big checks for each episode of foolery. It must be nice! Stay Tuned.
