Fans of VH1’s “Love & Hip Hop: Atlanta” are used to seeing the fights and infidelity, but season three will bring a whole new type of drama: the dreaded sex tape.
Not only do reality show lovers Mimi Faust and Nikko Smith make a homemade video, the pair even go as far as to shop it to an adult film company for release. “I’m in such another place, I don’t even realize that that camera is on,” Mimi says while lying in bed with Nikko in the extended four-and-a-half-minute trailer that VH1 put online.
Still shots from the spicy film turned up on TMZ on Monday, and when the show returns to air on May 5, viewers can witness the fallout for themselves.
That wasn’t the only drama the “LHHA” cameras caught. Last month, cast member Benzino was shot by his nephew while attending his mother’s funeral in the Boston area. At the end of the trailer we find Stevie J at his friend’s hospital bedside. “Let me just tell you something, man, you got a strong support system,” he says. “You got a lot of people who love you, best thing for you to do now is just relax.”
