Before wreaking havoc in the concrete jungle on Love & Hip Hop, Erica Mena got more than a dash of reality on Kourtney and Khloé Take Miami. As a sales clerk, or “Dash Doll,” at Miami’s Dash boutique, Erica swept, vacuumed, and stocked when she was employed by none other than the Reality TV Queens themselves, the Kardashians.
Now that Love and Hip Hop stars, Mimi Faust and Nikko Smith, have become megastars thanks to their sex tape, it’s time to focus on the next step. And for Nikko, that means a new song. The budding performer released a new song based on the most essential item from their video: “New Shower Rod.”
The much buzzed about sex tape starring Mimi Faust and Nikko Smith of VH1’s Love & Hip-Hop has just been released and it’s a huge hit! The website it’s available on got 900 hits per hour, which roughly equates to a half million dollars in sales on the first day.
Following the news that Mimi Faust and boyfriend Nikko Smith‘s sex tape leaked, the two are fully embracing their new celebrity sex star status. The two Love & Hip-Hop stars have been appearing at night clubs and teasing fans on Instagram. Haters to the left!
We don’t watch reality shows for the sweet characters. The do-gooders, the faithful wives, the lifelong friends who don’t leap across tables to rip each other’s throats out. No, it’s all about the villains! Now, it’s a reality show standard to have a wild card (or two) on each show. Hair-pulling, backstabbing, boyfriend-stealing, tacky tantrums, blatant bullying…this is what the genre is made of!
And the best villains know that the shows depend on them. If they really channel their inner lunatic, these characters can land endorsement deals, book contracts, or, like Real Housewives of Atlanta star Nene Leakes (a reformed villain), they can even score a role on a legit scripted show — hello, Glee.
In 2013, the reality genre experienced a villain boom. Dance Mom’s Abby Lee Miller was like a witch out of a Grimm’s fairy tale, cackling as she tortured the hell out of her dance school students. Love & Hip Hop’s Peter Gunz seemed cool enough, but then we discovered his schizophrenic love life — five babymamas, a secret wife and a girlfriend! Here, we salute the craziest reality cast members of the year.

Love & Hip Hop’s Yandy Smith recently got “all up in the business” of the Best Man Holiday cast, as they gave updates about where the characters are picking up 15 years after the 1999 hit movie The Best Man left off. Who better to get everyone caught up on where Harper, Jordan, Lance, Julian, Robin, Mia, Candy and the rest of the gang are now, than someone just as used to on-screen drama?
