We told you back in November that rumors were swirling that Mimi Faust and her boo Nikko made a Kim Kardashian type “home video” because Mimi was desperate to have a ratchet storyline on the upcoming season of LHHATL, and it was even speculated that she actually released the tape herself and was hoping to sell it for a pretty penny.

It looks like most of the gossip has just been confirmed.

TMZ is now reporting that Mimi and Nikko sold the tape to Vivid Entertainment, the same people who purchased Kim Kardashian’s infamous tape with Ray J. The site writes:

Vivid honcho Steve Hirsch tells TMZ … he got hold of the sex tape starring Mimi and Nikko Smith, and then contacted them to sign off on it going public. He says “Love & Hip Hop” producers also gave their blessing … presumably in an effort to spice up the reality show for next season.

We’ve seen clips of “Mimi & Nikko: Scandal in Atlanta” … it’s the real deal and it’s intense. It’s scheduled for release later this month.




Here’s the kicker. As we reported last week, Mimi is reportedly engaged to Nikko as of now. But we’re hearing from a little birdie that they only got engaged because they believed getting engaged will keep Mimi’s image from taking a massive hit. And the odds of them actually getting married is very slim.

Looks like the gossip suggesting Mimi is planning to follow Kim K’s footsteps wasn’t so far-fetched after all. Her new deal with Vivid is just the beginning.

Oh and expect Mimi and Nikko to both act as if they didn’t leak the video themselves in the upcoming season.

But of course that’s just gossip.


  1. I really thought Mimi was better than this but then I have to remember she did deal with Stevie J for 15 years. You can’t be a classy woman and deal with Stevie for that long of a period. LOL.

  2. It’s sad that these people will do anything to stay on these reality shows. Yes it is entertaining but damn they will do anything man. That’s sad.

  3. Of course this is all for the show. L&HH is nothing but a ghetto and fake soap opera. None of what we see is real. None of it.

  4. I hate to see beautiful black women striving to be like Kim Kardashian. Why are their standards so low? Why be like Kim when you could be like Michelle Obama? I don’t understand it at all.

  5. And I thought this woman couldn’t get any lower or lose anymore dignity. I guess I was wrong. Anything to extend those 15 minutes of fame SMH.

    1. Girl no. They get paid peanuts. That’s why the NY cast had a strike last year for new contracts. The only people who make decent reality show money are the folks who work for OWN and Bravo. VH1 does not pay well.

    2. I feel so sorry for her daughter. She has a horrific role model. I also feel sad for MiMi. It really is sad that she allowed the devil to take her down. I do believe that Jesus still visits broken people and she can overcome this. Praying for the sad state of affairs…

  6. I thought Mimi owned a cleaning business. She’s acting like she’s broke and desperate for money. What the hell is going on?

  7. Well well well! It looks like Mimi is actually the biggest bird on the show and to think she tried to say Joseline was!

  8. I’m really not surprised. I knew Mimi was a bird when she sat there and let Stevie make a fool out of her on TV. She’s always trying to clown Joseline but truth be told, she’s worse than Joseline. Mimi has a baby by Stevie and sat there and allowed him to treat her like trash for years. Meanwhile Joseline actually got that loser to put a ring on it in the span of a few months and Mimi has to settle for even broker Stevie J replicas and sex tapes. Big fat fail.

  9. Eh, once one actually sits and reflects on the two seasons we’ve seen of the show so far, you can’t really be surprised that Mimi would resort to any of this. In fact, this is pretty much Mimi’s real character. She is a very desperate woman.

  10. It’s sad that she’s choosing to resort to this. That check will be gone quick but her reputation isn’t going anywhere. SMH

  11. She’s dumb because Kim K is not a black woman. What worked for Kim won’t work for a woman of color.

  12. This wasn’t a spur of the moment tape either. This was staged and they had at least one camera man present on their set. This is the most trifling thing I’ve ever seen a reality star do.

  13. I just saw a trailer and if am just disappointed. I know I am not supposed to judge but it’s hard not to because the way she carried herself at first. But she is truly a sad individual who is desperate to maintain fame.

    She might as well just go full on into pr*n and make a living off of it.

  14. What ticks me off are all these birds trying to do pull ups during sex in showers on shower rods, hurting themselves knowing they missed the deadline to enroll for Obamacare.

  15. Mimi saw kim kardashian on the cover of vogue and it gave her hope. so blame Anna Wintour for this, Anna gave people hope that they too can be on the cover of vogue from a sex video.

    Stupid Anna Wintour.

  16. Why are yall hating…that tape is sexy…mimi and nikko are sexy themselves….she doesnt look desperate at all…she is a business woman…the women mad cuz they dont have her body…and wouldn’t dare put. their nasty post baby body on camera…..and the males mad because they dont have half of what nikko got….and cant do a third of what he was doing to mimi….stop hating…

    1. Did you call Mimi a business woman? Dude, you got some jokes. This whole comment is straight comedy, LOL!

  17. Mimi wanted to be a star. She was mad at Stevie in season 1 reunion for making Joseline an celebrity, mad at Michelle K. for interrupting her video shot. She was hot as hell about that. So now she has to come up with another gimmick to be the star she wants to be. It’s just funny how she down Joseline for her line of work at a young age people do things and sometimes later regret when they start getting older. But Mimi is much older and with age comes wisdom. This doesn’t shocks me. And really why would anyone have to be jealous of her body, hell she straight up and down it don’t take much to maintain that. She can’t say any thing after this.
