VIBE Vixen: On last week’s Love & Hip Hop Reunion show you seemed to be very poised and restrained compared to the out-of-control love triangle that was Stevie J, Joseline Hernandez, and his baby mama, Mimi Faust. What went through your mind when your two co-stars had to be separated by security after Joseline said to Mimi of her breast job, “Bitch, you wanna be me, that’s why you got them titties!” and Mimi responded by calling her a “trifling, disgusting slut monkey”?
Rasheeda: [Laughs] I got some giggles out of it because it’s some good entertainment. But at the same time I’m like, “Come on, y’all…you know you can sit down and talk like some grown women.” All this name-dropping and name-calling is funny, but it ain’t cute. But when it comes to them and Stevie and whatever they got going on that’s going to keep on being what it is. So they need to either deal with it or whatever.
It was rumored that you and Kirk’s storyline would be replaced for lack of drama. Following those rumors, your marital issues were heavily showcased during the second season, which caused viewers to believe the drama was just for TV. How do you feel about that?
Everybody has that mindset like these shows are off the chart…that they are all fake. Coming into the show initially it was something that Kirk didn’t even want to do. So he was in a place like, “I’m just here because of you.” We had a lot of issues in our marriage, but we didn’t put them on the table at the beginning because we were new to all this. We were green to the whole reality TV situation. And then we were both thinking about my artistry and the things I’m trying to do. We just tried to keep everything on the up-and-up for the most part.
