For those who have been keeping up with LAHHATL this season (it is currently on part 1 of its 3 part finale), you are well aware that Nikko revealed to Mimi that he is married- and has been married for well over seven years. The woman’s name is ‘Margo Simms,’ and she is from Canada but currently lives in New York where she works as a bartender. When asked why he didn’t tell Mimi about his marriage, Nikko simply replied he didn’t feel she ‘need to know,’ that.
Recently Sister-2-Sister magazine reached out to Mimi for a sit down to have her discuss her reaction to Nikko’s marriage, including if she thinks him and his wife plotted against her for fame and whether or not she is going to stick to continue seeing him. Personally, after dating Stevie J for so many years and going through what she did with him, there is nothing she probably can’t tolerate. Check out what she had to say on the next page.
On if she thinks that Nikko pursued her with intentions to later exploit their relationship:
“I don’t think he went into it to do that. I don’t think that was his intention from the start. I’ve known Nikko for years. We dated back in the past. So, when I met back up with him in 2012, we started dating again. I just think things happen. I don’t think when I saw him again in L.A., he thought, ‘This is what I’m going to do.’ I don’t believe that at all.”
On if she’ll be open to her friends’ criticisms when she’s ready for her next romance:
“At the end of the day, people are going to do what they want to do regardless. I know very few people that upon meeting someone, will listen to a friend . . . People have to go and bump their head. People have to figure it out on their own. It depends on each individual person. If you’re like me, I’m stubborn. I’mma do what I want to do. I don’t care who feels what about it. I have to go through my own experience, figure it out and then keep it moving.”
learning how to trust her instincts more:
“Listen to yourself more so than your friends or your parents. Listen to yourself. Yourself will never, ever steer you wrong. There were times when myself told me, ‘Something’s not right about the situation’ and I ignored it.”
Also, meet Nikko’s wife and all her pics here. She is a funky dressing fan of fashion and all things music (she’s also in a small band). And is a bartender.
Love and Hip Hop: Atlanta – Allegations Crack Cocaine Triggered Violent Brawl
A vicious “Love & Hip Hop: Atlanta” brawl has triggered a lawsuit … which now alleges one of the stars was smoking crack cocaine at the reunion show.
Althea Eaton has filed suit against Joseline Hernandez, who is caught on tape punching Althea in the face and dragging her to the ground … then hitting and scratching her for good measure.
In the suit, Althea claims eyewitnesses allegedly observed Joseline smoking crack cocaine out of a pipe backstage during the show. Althea believes Joseline was high as a kite when she attacked.
It’s interesting … Althea is NOT suing the show or the network, which means one of 2 things:
1. Producers didn’t orchestrate the fight
2. They did but she needs the job
On the surface, “Bottoms Up” is a documentary film that examines the newest booming trend in aesthetic surgery — big butts. Placed under a microscope, the film explores the media’s impact and other societal pressures that have propelled big butts from a cult fetish to a mainstream phenomenon. With an influx of new “it” girls from Kim Kardashian to Nicki Minaj, the images are inescapable. Women have taken drastic — and often dangerous — measures to achieve the impossible and often unreal.
Is bigger always better? When it comes to breasts and lips, the answer has been yes — with thousands of women going under the knife each year in search of augmented features. In recent years, the focus has shifted from breasts downwards, towards other ass-ets. In fact, in 2013, the number of butt augmentations increased by 58%. The film doesn’t just point the finger at women and the media, as men have played an equally important role. From Sir Mix-a-Lot, whose 1992 hit “Baby Got Back,” sensationalized round posteriors “I like big butts and I cannot lie” to new artists like 2Chainz “She got a big booty so I call her big booty”, it is men who actively pursue women with this new fetishized feature.
So who is to blame — the media? Men? Women? “Bottoms Up” offers different perspectives on this new issue. Jam-packed with commentary from plastic surgeons, women who desperately long for larger ones, and men who want a little more than a handful, the film takes a look at booties from every angle.
Facebook has become the Google of social networks. If you’re not updating your status right now, chances are that you are uploading photos or taking some sort of odd quiz. We post tons of intimate details about our lives that we normally wouldn’t share with anyone. We think that as long as we make sure our privacy settings are set correctly that we are safe and snug within our circle of friends.
The problem is that we never know who’s really looking at our information. Our friend’s account could have been hacked when they installed some rogue application, or their creepy uncle might be using their account because they forgot to log out. For the sake of the safety of you and your family, there is some information that you should never post on Facebook. Here are 5 things you should consider removing or not posting to Facebook and/or other social networks.
1. You or Your Family’s Full Birth Dates
We all love getting “happy birthdays” from our friends on our Facebook wall. It makes us feel all warm inside knowing that people remembered and cared enough to write us a short note on our special day. The problem is when you list your birthday you are providing identity thieves with one of the 3 or 4 pieces of personal information that is needed to steal your identity. It’s best to not list the date at all, but if you must, at least leave out the year. Your real friends should know this info anyway.
2. Your Relationship Status
Whether you are in a relationship or not, it may be best not to make it public knowledge. Stalkers would love to know that you just became newly single. If you change your status to “single” it gives them the green light they were looking for to resume stalking now that you’re back on the market. It also lets them know that you might be home alone since your significant other is no longer around. Your best bet is to just leave this blank on your profile.
3. Your Current Location
There are a lot of people who love the location tagging feature on Facebook that allows them to let people know where they are 24/7. The problem is that you have just told everyone that you’re on vacation (and not at your house). If you add how long your trip is then thieves know exactly how much time they have to rob you. My advice is not to provide your location at all. You can always upload your vacation pictures when you get home or text your friends to let them know how jealous they should be that you’re sipping an umbrella drink while they toil away at work.
4. The Fact That You Are Home Alone
It is extremely important that parents make sure their children never put the fact that they are home alone in their status. Again, you wouldn’t walk into a room of strangers and tell them you are going to be all alone at your house so don’t do it on Facebook either.
We may think that only our friends have access to our status, but we really have no idea who is reading it. Your friend may have had their account hacked or someone could be reading over their shoulder at the library. The best rule of thumb is not to put anything in your profile or status that you wouldn’t want a stranger to know. You may have the most stringent privacy settings possible, but if your friend’s account gets compromised than those settings go out the window.
5. Pictures of Your Kids Tagged With Their Names
We love our kids. We would do anything to keep them safe, but most people post hundreds of tagged pictures and videos of their kids to Facebook without even giving it a second thought. We even go so far as to replace our profile pictures with that of our children.
Probably 9 out of 10 parents posted their child’s full name, and exact date and time of birth while they were still in the hospital after delivery. We post pictures of our kids and tag them and their friends, siblings, and other relatives. This kind of information could be used by predators to lure your child. They could use your child’s name and the names of their relatives and friends to build trust and convince them that they are not really a stranger because they know detailed information that allows them to build a rapport with your child.
If you must post pictures of your children then you should at least remove personally identifying information such as their full names and birth dates. Untag them in pictures. Your real friends know their names anyway.
I would be a hypocrite if I said that I have completely removed all tagged pictures of my kids on facebook. It is a daunting task given the amount of pictures that we take as proud parents, but I have started on it and I’ll do a little bit each day until it’s finished.
Lastly, think twice before you tag pictures of the children of friends and relatives. They might not want you tagging their kids for the reasons mentioned above. You can send them a link to the pictures and they can tag themselves in place of their children if they want to.

Celebrities are supposed to report the prizes as income and pay taxes on them.

The collective voices of outrage at the death of Michael Brown continue to grow in Hip-Hop. Lauryn Hill is the latest to stand in protest, at least in her music. Her song “Black Rage” is set to the tune of the Sound of Music’s “My Favorite Things” but it is far from a list of pleasantries. Instead, Ms. Hill talks about many of the atrocities in life that fuel Black rage and, in turn, give her perspective about her own life. This is one of her most haunting works to date.
