“Love & Hip Hop: Atlanta” Mimi Faust and Stevie J. sat down with Ebony Magazine for an exclusive interview, as to what’s going on with the dis-functional couple or ex-couple.
Check out the highlights of the interview, as Mimi shades some light on the situation below:
What about Joseline and the pregnancy. When you first found out, was it over the phone or was it in-person, at the restaurant, and what was your initial reaction?
“When I sat down at the restaurant. If you look closely, you see me swallow very hard. If you look back [at the episode], I swallowed like I swallowed a damn golf ball or something.”
Fans have pretty much labeled this the “abortion episode,” for obvious reasons. Your first time watching the episode, what went through your head seeing Joseline say, “Do you love me Stevie?”
“It makes me sick to my stomach, because I don’t know what they tape or what they tape when they tape. So to see this, watching this along with the rest of the world and having to listen to everyone’s opinion and their judgments about it. I mean… It’s sickening. I don’t even have another word for it.”
So what is your relationship with Joseline now? Do you two speak?
“Ha, I have not seen Joseline. Where would I possibly ever see Joseline? If I did see Joseline, I doubt that we would speak about it. Speak to each other for what? Why?”
Okay, understood? So why wait so long to leave to him? It seems like fans have commented on you being such a strong woman, but this man comes off as your kryptonite.
“I did not see everything everyone else was seeing. All this stuff you guys are seeing in our world…you think he showed me this? Of course not! Everybody thinks, ‘Oh, why would [she] stay?’ I didn’t know. He’s a liar. If I knew all this was going on, you think I be sitting there like, “Oh, this is cool. I’m with this.” Nah.”
Since you know him best, what is going on with all the facial expressions Stevie makes on the show? He tries to do this LL?
“Cool J, licking lips thing while he scrunches his face when he knows he messed up. What’s going on with all that?”
“I really don’t have words. I swear I don’t. I don’t even know who this person is. Who are you? This is not the man that I laid down and had a child with. This face making jerk ya’ll see, I’m trying to figure out who he is too. SO when you find out who he is, you let me know?”
Now, what Stevie J had to say:
“That scene took place about 15 minutes after the scene when I just got the test. It’s like, am I supposed to just throw it away? After that it was like, ‘Damn, this is what’s going down? [I] got to let [my] girl know about…all this.’ It [wasn’t] like, ‘Let me just keep this and let me frame this. Let me put this joint on eBay or something.’ Nah. [When] I walked up out of there, I got in my car, drove off and threw that joint out the window. It’s not like I was going to save that joint or rock it as medallion or nothing.”
So Stevie J, what’s your relationship with Joseline now? Strictly business?
“We’re running around and we’re going to scrape up everything that’s on the table. We don’t want to stop. I push that on button and she’s like, ‘Solider, it’s on. I don’t want it off. Let’s just go.’”
The question is, are they (Mimi & Stevie) still two still dating or not?
