‘Love And Hip Hop Atlanta’ Star Mimi Faust Puts the Producers on Blast
Mimi Faust may be ready to walk away from “Love And Hip Hop Atlanta.”
During an interview with Stacii Jae Johnson, Mimi made it clear that she feels like she’s out of place on the show now. When she was asked if she’d stay on the show until the wheels fall off, Mimi said, “No. Honestly, I don’t even think I belong on the show anymore. I feel like a total outcast and an alien because I don’t even know what’s going on. What are we fighting about? That’s why I just sit there. I’m like what? When I was going through my sh*t, I was really going through some sh*t for real. Really real…today they’re fighting over who’s the Queen of Atlanta. What? I don’t understand. So I’m not going to get involved. I just don’t get it.”
She added, “I think the show has kind of switched gears a little bit. A lot actually and I’ve elevated and grown from the BS I was in. And I’m happy and nobody wants to see happy on ‘Love And Hip Hop.’ They just don’t. ‘Love And Hip Hop’ is not a happy arena. They want to see wigs flying and drinks thrown. And somebody punching somebody in the face. That’s what they want to see. And I choose not to participate in that and I took a major pay cut because of it. The reason was I didn’t have enough drama in my life. $150,000 I had to take because of it…An $150,000 pay cut.”
Mimi also claimed that the producers urged her to find some drama or take a pay cut. She said, “On my last interview because you know, every season, we have to go back and talk to the producers, ‘So what’s going on in your life? X, Y, and Z?’ And I think the second question I was asked was, was Ty cheating on me…was the second question the producers asked in my meeting with the producers. I was like, ‘Are you serious?’ Am I supposed to be f*cked up? In a bad place? Being cheated on my whole life? At what point am I allowed to grow and be happy? Be okay? Be good? Why do I have to consistently be cheated on every relationship I’m in? But that’s what they want. And they were like you either find some drama or…”
She also said that her girlfriend Ty Young would never agree to fake drama.
