If you can believe it, Love & Hip Hop Atlanta hasn’t even been around for two full years. The series premiered on June 18, 2012 and in that short time, it’s become a worldwide phenomenon known for its love triangles, rat faces, and smashed homies.

On this day, known on the internet as Throwback Thursday, we would like to take a peek back at simpler times before the chaos of the series turned the cast’s lives around. Before the sex tapes and pregnancies, this was a group of people that looked like a genuine group of friends who were just happy to be here. Check out these pictures from the season one premiere party from June, 2012 and check out how happy Mimi and Stevie are, how adorable Kirk and Rasheeda are, and how K.Michelle can tolerate being in the same room as Rasheeda and Mimi. Nothing has been the same since.
