The Love & Hip-Hop franchise has definitely introduced us to some pretty amazing people–and not so amazing wierdos! Still, there is a lot to be said when a reality star decides enough is enough and walks away from what might be a pretty lucrative opportunity. Well it looks like Love & Hip-Hop Atlanta’s Mimi Faust is calling it quits with the hit reality series. Sources close to Mimi and the show reveals she has decided not to renew her contract and is instead opting to focus on her personal life and her interior design business.
Now this is not the first rumor we have heard about Mimi leaving the series. Earlier this year a rumor circled that VH-1 was doing away with the entire cast. Mimi vehemently denied this, but it looks like just she (and hopefully Ariane too) have bowed out. As you may recall in the reunion special she kept repeating “this would be her last time doing this.” She was talking about the show, not interviews with Chris. Honestly, Mimi’s had a good run on the show and the triangle between she, Joseline, and Stevie J is played out. Besides, Joseline already has a new nemesis in Tommie Lee, Scrapp Deleon’s ex who joined the cast this past season.
The shenanigans of this show and Mimi’s story lines have been very convoluted (sex tape with Nikko, her relationship with Chris, etc.) and overall messy. Mimi claims to be upstanding and from what we have seen of her in person she actually is. We wish her the best of luck!
