“Love & Hip Hop Atlanta” star Mimi Faust kept quiet Monday after everyone found out that she had starred in an allegedly leaked sex tape. She took the route of "Teen Mom" Farrah Abraham, and decided to profit from the porno by signing a contract with notorious X-rated film site Vivid.com.
"LHHATL" castmates Joseline Hernandez and K. Michelle joined in on the #MimiShowerRodStrongerThan trend and shared their own memes and videos. K. Michelle brought up the infamous shower rod scene that had Twitter abuzz Monday.
Hernandez also responded to the shower rod joke. She's probably one of the people happiest to see Faust's scandal, since on the show Hernandez is often called a "prostitute."
It seemed Faust was trying to stay as far from the Internet as possible, but it wasn’t long before she returned. Unlike her castmates/rivals, she didn't have anything to say about her bathroom scene. She stuck to business.
Faust seemed to ignore that she was one of the most gossiped about people on the Twitterverse this week. Instead she promoted herself on Instagram and Twitter. “Were swinging through the building tomorrow!!!” she wrote and shared a picture on IG. She also shared where she can be reached for booking inquiries and interviews.
Faust would seem to need a manager more than ever now that she’s going to be featured in amateur porn. Before “LHHATL,” she was just generally known as Stevie J’s girlfriend.
Somewhat shockingly, she’s still with Nikko Smith, the boyfriend who joined her in the sex tape. According to the extended trailer from VH1 for Season 3 of “Love & Hip Hop,” the tape seems to have been leaked while it was in his possession. The clip shows him telling Faust that their intimate experience in front of the camera had been leaked.
The new season of “LHHATL” is set to premiere on VH1 on May 5 at 8/7c. Her sex tape, “Mimi & Nikko: Scandal in Atlanta,” is set to be released by Vivid in five days. No doubt, Season 3 of the reality show will probably be one of the most riveting ones yet.
