For folks who think “Real Housewives of Atlanta” is too trashy for their taste, they haven’t seen “Love & Hip Hop Atlanta.”

Mimi Faust, one of the cast members, is releasing something that no housewife that I know has ever marketed: a sex tape.

According to TMZ, she and her love partner Nikko Smith did the tape and somehow it ended up in Vivid Entertainment’s hands. The adult film company plans to release “Mimi and Nikko: Scandal in Atlanta.” The producers of the VH1 show don’t seem to mind. In fact, they are using it as a major plot point in trailers to season three, which starts May 5.

Mimi on this very stylized “reality” show is the ex of Stevie J, a producer with a Cheshire Cat grin and a gift for gab. She frequently acts like she deserves better than Stevie J yet accepts his lavish gifts without too much complaining. They also have a young daughter together. During season two, she started dating a Stevie J look-a-like and producer Nikko, who lacks Stevie J’s charisma but seems plenty scuzzy.

She mentioned the possibility of  a sex tape season two and the producers of the show are gleefully using the tape itself as fodder for season three, which is currently in production.

In the extended four-minute trailer below, she grapples with the ramifications of going into porn and Stevie J is not happy at all:

The video also features a clip of the fight at Benzino and Stevie J’s short-lived nightclub downtown from earlier this year, which I’ve chronicledAnd Benzino getting shot? It shows up as well.

Rap stars Yung Joc and Waka Flocka Flame, plus Diddy-Dirty Money’s Kalena Harper will be joining the cast.  As previously reported, K. Michelle and Traci Steele are out. Karlie Redd, who barely had a story line to her name season two, has started dating Yung Joc, which I have to say is a smart way to stay in the spotlight.

And these are the teasers VH1 publicity conjured up for the third season verbatim:

· Stevie J. and Joseline Hernandez are living in wedded bliss – a pill that many in Atlanta find hard to swallow. Though Joseline couldn’t care less about the opinions of her ‘haters,’ will this feisty starlet be able prove naysayers wrong with an extravagant (and public) ceremony worthy of her title as the “Puerto Rican Princess?”

· Mimi Faust is dealing with a scandal of her own when a sex tape “mysteriously” leaks starring her and boyfriend Nikko – a man her closest confidants don’t trust. Although she stands to gain notoriety and fortune, the mother of one must determine if the reward outweighs the repercussions that could potentially destroy her friendships and family.

· Over in the “palace,” Lil Scrappy is dealing with life after rehab. Post-Erica, Scrappy has gotten close with rapper Bambi, but true to form, he’s still out playing the field and Momma Dee has no issues playing referee.

· Erica Dixon has left the drama of her on-again/off-again romance with Scrappy behind and is instead focusing on new endeavors, her up-and-coming fashion line and the possibility of finding love again.

· The rollercoaster that is Kirk and Rasheeda’s marriage continues to spin out of control as the family’s newest addition, Karter, raises questions that threaten the peace and harmony of their household.

· Meanwhile, Benzino has abandoned the hot tubs and numerous vixens now that he’s found his match in fiancée Althea, a woman whose past may threaten their future together.

· Karlie Redd no longer mourns her breakup with Benzino and has moved on with Yung Joc (“It’s Goin’ Down”), a hit maker who just might have the connections she needs to finally break into the music industry. But will jealousy between the two destroy the beautiful music they make together?

· Newcomers Waka Flocka Flame (“No Hands”) and fiancé Tammy Rivera have been through a series of ups and downs over the course of their three year courtship, but now the time is right for the pair to take the next step together while still pursuing their own personal endeavors.

· This season will also introduce singer/songwriter Kalenna Harper, one-third of Diddy-Dirty Money, who has moved to Atlanta with husband Tony aka “T.Vick” in a last attempt to re-launch her solo career.

MiMi did not do this for money.  MiMi did this because this was the only thing her mind could come up with to coming even close to making Stevie J feel the pain she felt when he married Josline.  This woman was with this man when he was a average, everyday, no real money making Jo Blow.  Had his daughter.  Been down with him through years and years of crap, and who did he choose to put a ring on, and give his last name, and grow old with? A Puerto Rican Stripper baby!  O MiMi is hot! don't get a twisted, she did NOT do that for money people.

Will Kim Zolciak make a tape next? Kroy Biermann may be the dumbest man in the NFL.

That show should be called Trashy Pirate Hookers Of Atlanta.

I knew Mimi was weak minded and easily persuaded but at times during her feuds with Stevie J., I saw some strength in her (at least I thought).  I cannot believe she has allowed with guy to persuade her to first of all make a sex video but then to sell it to a porn distribution company and to be contemplating becoming a porn star! 

Mimi this is the worst decision you can make as a woman.  You said you respected yourself.  You had the nerve to (on more than one occasion) talk down to Joseline about being a stripper, etc.  But honey chile, you can't talk about Joseline or anyone now! 

Not the example to set for your daughter!  Steebie  is already a deadbeat dad and now your daughter has a #@! for a mom! 

I could go on and on...I just don't know what to say but Mimi is a disappointment to women.  Disgusting!!!!!!

It's so very sad how the original Hip Hop culture have been further highjacked and today, it have been dealt another serious blow. When rappers create videos swiping a visa on a model rear end, that's when I stop watching videos and I knew then, that the rap industry would soon turn to or at least be connected to porn.


The original Hip Hop culture have gone from break dancin, to story-telling rap, to gangsta rap, to reality TV, and now to porn. I have no more respect for Hip Hop and the ignorance culture it produce, such as, crime, recreational drugs, profanity, alcohol, and now, Hip Hop porn stars.


This new underground breed of Hip Hop porn have now been elevate to it magical dream from the darkest of  the underground black media, to now a national media from the help of TVOne realty show, "Love and Hip Hop Atlanta", via Mimi Faust, the new arising star of Hip Hop porn.


I just wonder of how many famous and highly respected dead rappers with a strong influence on the Hip Hop world would approved of this new direction of Hip Hop and I also would wonder what does the  respected talk show host Phil Donahue, Tony Brown, and Oprah would think of these characters and the industry that produce them.


I believe now that Mimi has allow herself to become the pioneer of the realty TV Hip Hop porn star, just might have given the rap industry and stars like JayZ, and Little Wayne the open door to produce Hip Hop porn, and I'm sure that would make 2 live crew "Luke Walker" a very proud man that his dream of Hip Hop porn is now a reality.


Finally, I truly feel sad for my young inspiring black brothers as they search for a decent sister or a leading lady of their dreams as they wish to never encounter the reality of TV drama and the trash that are associated in the Hip Hop world of sex, money, and lies.


I now praise my beloved uncle as he once sat me down at the age of 10 and taught me on class, women behavior, and jazz. Believe me those teaching, have place me in a total different environment with less bull and more pleasure.


Good luck with the Hip Hop, Atlanta.

jt- Writing and publishing a puff piece on pornogrophy IS peddling smut.

If I didn't voice my displeasure, my lack of response could be construed as acceptance.

How is this smut peddling? It's in the entertainment section ENTERTAINMENT. It's not under World News or even City News. And you clicked on it. Don't click then. I don't get why people comment on things when you have a choice to not read it. Oh yea that's right....it's the internet and we all want to know what you think. Yea that's it.

Very nice, very nice.  Smut peddling by the AJC.


So why did Congressman Weiner have to resign?

I see an NAACP Image Award coming up for this show. Or at least a nomination.

I remember the days of the late 80s when black artists not named Jackson couldn't PAY VH1 to play their videos, when VH1 used to play music videos. Now it seems like the money is in trashy "African-American" programming. Well, if someone's entertained, and others are getting paid, so be it. Give 'em what they want.

Why do people still call it a sex "tape"? Nobody uses tape anymore, just call it a sex "video".

So the AJC and Rodney Ho are officially smut peddlers.

I signed up for a subscription last year just to "support" journalism. Thanks for the slap in the face.

@jtoney76  

So, if the "ENTERTAINMENT" section runs a piece glorifying trafficking in little girls to be sex slaves, I should just not click on it, not read it, not comment on it.

That would be so selfish of me.  It would be all about me.

Sheesh.  The world is turning into complete crap before our very eyes.

@jackiestevens are you serious?  This isn't about skeletons, this is about poor decision-making.  This woman has a young daughter.  Regardless of how much money she stands to make, it's a horrible decision.  I don't consider her trash, but I do consider her decision making skills to be very poor.  She doesn't "need" the money, I'm sure I live off less than she makes just being on the show and I have 3 kids and a husband. She wants fame and fortune.  This is a price to pay when you lay in bed with the devil.
