Rasheeda and Kirk faking their drama to stay on TV? Rasheeda and Kirk Frost have shocked us all and managed to become the stars of season two of “Love and Hip Hop Atlanta.” Although the couple appeared to have it so together in the first season that they even renewed their vows, this season we’ve seen them become the kind of couple that invokes plenty of anger from viewers. Kirk has completely morphed from supportive and at times the way too patient husband to the sleazy guy who not only demands a blood test from his pregnant wife, but he also cheats and flirts with multiple women in hot tubs. On the last episode, Rasheeda finds out through Traci Steele about Kirk’s adulterous ways that went down during his “boy’s retreat” with Benzino. By the end of the episode, we see Rasheeda emotionally tossing all of Kirk’s clothes out of the house.
Interestingly enough, there have been some whispers going around in the industry circles that Kirk and Rasheeda’s “storyline” is purely manufactured. We’re assuming Wendy must have heard the talk too because she slammed both Rasheeda and Kirk on her show the other day and called them out for faking their drama this season. Wendy says:
“First of all Rasheeda you and Kirk are real ratchet for drumming up this storyline right here. ‘Cause you know what you were doing ’cause Stevie and my Puerto Rican Princess Joseline were the popular couple. And you and your husband or whatever you want to call that animal, you all did this as a plot to get popular on this show. It’s a shame what people will do to stay on this reality TV. This is worse than the Kardashians.”
And if that wasn’t bad enough, Wendy goes on to tell whole cast of LHHATL they aren’t good enough to come on her show and she feels guilty for watching the show so faithfully on Monday nights, of course she does eventually extend one invite only to her favorite Joseline Hernandez:
“None of you all call. I don’t want you to come on the show. It’s just that I watch but you’re not suitable guests for the show except for you my Puerto Rican Princess Joseline. But I can’t really understand what she says, so we’ll do the closed captioning.”
Here’s where things get even more scandalous though. Apparently the people in Atlanta are getting infuriated by Rasheeda and Kirk’s behavior on TV. Why? Well according to those in the know and social circles in Atlanta, Rasheeda and Kirk are very much still together and not having the issues they portray on television. Allegedly the couple has been spotted around Atlanta together all the time looking happy, and someone even told us they saw them looking at cars together. If you’re telling TMZ your marriage is done, we’re wondering why you would go to a dealership and look at cars together. Regardless, it was this particular email that really made us raise an eyebrow:
Kirk and Rasheeda are faking. If you need any proof of this, take a close look at who Kirk is “cheating” with. Mary Jane is not a stranger to Kirk and Rasheeda. She’s actually in their inner circle because she was one of the stars of Memphitz’s reality show “Real Mistresses of Atlanta.” The show didn’t get picked up because none of the major networks wanted anything to do with it. Don’t forget Memphitz is Toya Wright’s hubby and Toya and Memphitz are in on it too. Rasheeda and Kirk were almost fired from that show, but they had a meeting with Mona and promised they would “let loose” a little more for the cameras. People don’t understand that despite what Rasheeda says, they are broke! They need the VH1 money! They came up with this fake storyline and called on Toya and Memphitz to put all the pieces together. Mary Jane was perfect because she’s still not very well known, and she’ll do anything for money. She doesn’t care what people think of her either.
And for the record, Kirk is a good husband. These two really do love each other and he would never do the things he’s doing on the show in real life. But money problems made them feel like they had to do whatever they had to do to stay on the show.
Of course we can’t confirm any of this and it’s just gossip for now, but apparently more and more people are starting to think Kirk and Rasheeda’s drama is just for the cameras. And if it is, well let’s just say their little plan worked. Not only are Kirk and Rasheeda getting more camera time, they are the most talked about people on LHHATL as of now. And as far as the ratings go, they have increased significantly since their drama became the focal point of the second season.
But who do you believe? Are Kirk and Rasheeda really having marital problems or is Wendy and our source spot on with their claims?
