Delusional Much? Joseline Hernandez Defends Stevie J. Buying Mimi a ‘Life Partner’ Ring
By: Amanda Anderson-Niles
The Stevie J., Joseline and Mimi drama continues. Season two of “Love and Hip Hop Atlanta” may be over, but everyone is still talking about the last scene between Mimi Faust, Stevie J. and Joseline Hernandez. Although Kirk Frost and Rasheeda’s storyline became the season’s forerunner, in the end these three did what they did best and stole the show. Joseline and Stevie decided to be “exclusive” this season, but as Joseline quickly learned it’s not easy trying to get Stevie J. to be monogamous. After proposing to the producer, Joseline was disappointed to learn he didn’t want to get married yet and he instead said he wanted to keep the ring so he could have a symbol of their “life partnership.”
Stevie eventually did buy Joseline a ring but he ruined the moment by giving Mimi Faust a ring too just seconds after putting one on Joseline’s ring finger. Joseline was furious and she attacked him on the elevator while Mimi laughed and drank her champagne.
Although Joseline talked real tough at the close of the season finale and claimed she didn’t need Stevie anymore, we’re guessing her feelings have changed since then. In a recent chat with VH1 she actually defended Stevie J’s actions and sounds pretty delusional. Stevie J. also made some comments that sound pretty clear to us he’s not interested in marriage, while Mimi Faust made it clear she has absolutely no sympathy for Joseline.
When asked why he bought both ladies rings, Stevie J. says:
“Ladies love diamonds. And money. And bags. So I figured I’d go with the two life partner rings, the life partner bands. I hope they like ‘em.”
Out of Stevie’s own mouth, he confirms he bought two life partner bands. One for Joseline and one for Mimi.
Mimi Faust says she’s planning to pawn the ring and put the money towards her daughter’s education:
“I’m going to pawn it and put it down for my daughter’s tuition for school. That’s exactly what I’m going to do. This ring can kiss my a-s and so can he. He bought us the same f—ing ring!” Mimi told us when we brought up the subject of her “engagement” ring from Stevie. We joked that if she gets rid of her ring, she’ll jeopardize her standing in Stevie’s Life Partner Gang, and, despite all her laughter while the situation played out, she got feisty, asking “Who is a life partner? In his psychotic mind we’re life partners. Oh, and? He went to Jared. She went to Cartier, he went to Jared. It’s a joke.”
She also made it clear she doesn’t feel bad for Joseline in the least bit:
“I was dying laughing because she thought ‘Oh, he’s proposing to me in front of her, he’s showing me he loves me,’ and then he turns around and gives me one too.
“F— her. And f— her again. F— HER. That insensitive a-s b-tch can suck a d—. I don’t like her, she’s a f—ing asshole, she means me no f—ing good, f— her.”
Joseline seems to see things completely differently despite Stevie admitting he bought two life partner rings. In her mind, Stevie J. actually proposed and meant to be sweet with the rings:
“He didn’t propose to both of us. He gave her a friendship ring. As far as him giving her a friendship ring, I don’t have any problem with that, I don’t think he should have did it on the same day that he gave me a ring on my wedding finger, but Stevie do things how he wanna do them, I’m not really tripping on it. He gave her a pinky ring and he gave me mine for my wedding finger, so it’s a big difference.
“I believe when he gave her that friendship ring, he shouldn’t have done it on the same day that he gave me my ring, but after we went home and talked about it, it’s not even that serious.”
And while many people see red flags at Stevie calling what he has with Joseline and Mimi “life partner gang,” Joseline is cool with that now:
“I think that Stevie chooses his words however he wants to choose them, and I learned not to take Stevie so seriously because I’m always with him, we’re always together, so I don’t take too seriously what Stevie says anymore to his baby mother or to anybody else. I just learn to laugh at it and go with the flow, as long as he keeps getting me those deals and getting me those checks.”
