Let’s Talk: Mimi Faust Does Porn

Happy Monday Readers,

Sorry about the absence. Hope that you all had a super exciting weekend!

So Mimi and her overgrown naked mole rat of a boyfriend have unleashed their “sex tape” porno flick to a flurry of tweets, blog posts, and reactions.

This is after the super trailer for Love & Hip Hop Atlanta was released.

 <div><a href=”http://www.vh1.com/shows/love_and_hip_hop_atlanta/series.jhtml&#8221; style=”color: #439cd8;” target=”_blank”>Love &amp; Hip Hop Atlanta</a></div>

Now I (Trash) love this show in all of its basic glory. From the moment Joseline sang Bailar and Karlie Redd served us Louis, Prada, Gucci, I was hooked. The show is hilarious and the amount of fuckery this cast exposes is just glorious.

Now Mimi has always come across as a relatively composed, if somewhat weak willed woman. Her stupid relationship with Stevie J and her allowance of the constant disrespect people show her have turned me off. She doesn’t make wise decisions and she puts it all out there on VH1 for the world to see.  This is a woman that let Joseline refer to her as Molly the Maid to her face.

The chase for fame is why we are in this situation now. And that’s what I’m here to talk about today.

Now, I read about this situation on Funky Dineva a few months ago. My first thought was why would a woman with a child willingly participate in a staged “sex tape” with an unsigned “rapper/producer”? The only acceptable reason for me seemed to be that perhaps she couldn’t afford to take care of her daughter.

But here’s the thing, Mimi is still a cast member on a successful and popular reality show. Stevie J, for ALL of his faults, seems to be on the same page with providing monetary support for their daughter. She also has that maid business. Between these ventures, there should be enough coins to reasonably care for her daughter.

That’s what makes this so baffling. This seems like such a poor decision. But it’s one that makes complete sense given her history.

The problem with Mimi, much like many other young parents, is that she has forgotten that her desires and whims should not come before those of her daughter. Her decision to release this tape with a boyfriend while in the public eye simply comes off as a desperate plea for attention and “stardom.”

Let’s be clear, Mimi is not a slut or hoe for having sex on camera. She should not be told she can’t make this decision. There’s a ton of women and men who have done worse for less.

Joseline is judging her like we haven’t seen her with foreign objects in her poonani. K. Michelle is judging her like she doesn’t have grape jelly in her derrière.

That’s not the argument.

That said, we’ve now seen her inner and outer labia and Nikko’s gross face hanging from a shower rod. I’m not a psychic, but I’m 99.99% sure this is not going to make them famous. It’s not going to lead to a record deal. It’s not going to lead to a spin off show. It’s not going to gain any level of fame that she already didn’t have.

But she is going to find that she has lost any sort of moral high ground or position of trust that she had. She is now responsible for explaining this decision and the public’s reaction to this. And had she thought about the repercussions of this for that child, she might have truly thought this through.

What do you all think?  Was Mimi irresponsible or expressing herself as an adult?  Would you do this?  Let us know in the comments below.

  1. Lawd when I saw that damn trailer…..SMH. Bitch always talking bout my baby this, my baby that when the whole time the trailer is playing I’m thinking, “Honey where is yo baby?” Tsk Tsk. And to play off of what you said…had she made the decision to venture into the pornography industry because she enjoys sex, is comfortable with her body, and just owned the situation…then sure, get it gurl, ain’t mad at cha. However it is very obvious what this was all about. It’s nasty, tasteless, and makes them both look hella desperate. This is why we can’t have nice things.

    1. So true. She definitely just removed any goodwill people had for her because of that relationship. I just hope that they take the time to explain it to her when she’s old enough.

      And that video is so nasty. They couldn’t afford a Marriott?

  2. The thing with Mimi is that she isn’t a young parent. She’s 43, and in all honestly should make better decisions with her child in mind. Also, I don’t think it’s wrong to video tape you and your mate for your own personal enjoyment later. Not even if it subsequently leaks (even though it would have had to be you or your partner) but the thing here is that it was a high quality produced porno and she’s trying to act like it wasn’t. She made a poor decision and now is trying to cover her ass but Im not buying it and I don’t think anybody else is either.

    1. I completely agree. You are totally right that Mimi is not a young mother. I should have phrased that to say she is making a young mother mistake.

      But she really made a stupid decision and her cover up is not going to work. I mean they already have the cover art and title ready. If anything, it probably makes more sense for her to own it at this point.

      Thanks for the comment!
