L&HH ATL Recap: Scrappy And Erica Call Off Engagement, Stevie J And Benzino's Bromance Ends

Last night's episode of 'Love & Hip Hop Atlanta' was a breakup fest. Following the huge fight last week, Scrappy, Erica and Momma Dee were still reeling. Scrappy and Erica sit down to talk it out but it was too little, too late. Erica complained about the ongoing disrespect from Momma Dee and the fact that Scrappy refuses to have his woman's back. Until he's ready to bark back at his mother, Erica wants to put the engagement on hold. No more wedding planning, nothing, until Scrappy can man up. Scrap is visibly hurt, but complies. He asks Kirk for some married advice (at the strip club, of course) and Kirk says that Scrappy needs to learn to balance both his mama and his lady.

Kirk isn't so cool when dealing with his own issues though. He confronts K. Michelle at the studio to talk about her fight with Rasheeda. Kirk says that throwing a candle at Rasheeda went too far and he refuses to let K get away with it. K screams back that Rasheeda had it coming to her after yapping off about K on blogs, etc. She then questions Kirk's sexuality and says she will fight whoever she well pleases. Kirk walks away, but not before calling K an industry jumpoff.

Apparently K. Michelle can't be much of a jumpoff. She confides in Mimi that she's been having trouble getting sexually turned on without alcohol. Worried, she and Mimi go to a doctor to check things out. The doc says that K is fine and Mimi exposes that K is just pining for her ex man and it's all psychological. K says the only man who turns her on is Barack Obama so the doctor hilariously tells her to find a man like Barack...on eHarmony. K is shocked that someone of her looks needs online dating and refuses.

Elsewhere, Joseline continues to grapple with her feelings about Stevie. Stevie tries to get back in Jos' good graces by producing the contract she was asking for and even offers to play her a new song that he found for her. Jos tearfully says that she doesn't care and reveals that she still loves Stevie. It seems she's more hurt by his actions personally than professionally. She demands that he stop stressing her out and giving her more than just lobster and shrimp dates. "I want you to make me happy," says Joseline.

Cut to... Joseline and Stevie in bed. That was fast.

During their pillow talk session, Joseline mentions the rumor Karlie Redd shared: Benzino telling Karlie that he slept with Joseline. Stevie is shocked and wants to confront his friend of eight years. Jos and Stevie roll up on Benzino and blast him for lying. Joseline then produces DMs from her Twitter account, showing Benzino hitting her at 6am. Benzino claims the Tweets are harmless and business-related (He doesn't have her number?!) Benzino then denies smashing Joseline and says that Karlie Redd is a gossip. He and Stevie then have a man-to-man face-off where Benzino tells his friend to drop Joseline. Benzino says that Joseline is drama and will only destroy Stevie's life. Stevie ain't having it. The two bros dead their friendship right then and there and Stevie leaves with Joseline. Hoes before bros?

Finally, Drew convinces Traci to invest in his new t-shirt store. She brings over the $25,000 check to his house but he refuses to open the door. On top of that, he's wearing pajama pants. This can't be good. Traci barges into Drew's house and finds one of his many girls over. She flips out and starts yelling at Drew and then at his company. "These bitches don't open their mouth! You train these bitches!" screams Traci. She runs out of the house and Drew follows her ... in his pajama pants. Traci breaks down and says that she's tired of Drew running around with half of Atlanta, especially around their young son. She says that their son even called her "Megan" once, confusing his mother with one of Drew's jumps. Traci rips up the check but Drew holds firm. He says that they're not dating so she has no right into his personal life. Drew says that unless Traci invests, he's going back on the road with Chris Brown and their family will be affected. Crying, Traci says that she never asked to be a baby mama and she deserves better than this.

Kissing Game. She's got my ❤ on a string. @kaaviajames 💋💋💋

"Kissing seems so harmless, but research suggests that you could spread oral bacteria called mutant streptococci through saliva if you have active tooth decay," said one commenter, giving an unwelcome dose of cyber parenting. "And this could increase your child's risk of tooth decay."

With hundreds of people giving unrequested advice, Union offered a response to the comments.

"Hey guys, I appreciate all the concern about kisses on the mouth and labored breathing,” the 46-year-old wrote. "I am blessed enough to have a nurse here with us while at work. Kaav is healthy and I don’t even touch her without washing and sanitizing myself and everything and everyone that comes into contact with her.”

A classy comeback, the actress stood her ground while defending her right to parent in her own way.

50 Cent, Starz CEO Detail $150 Million Deal, 'Power' Spinoffs

50 Cent continues to flourish as a television producer as he spilled the tea to Business Insider during their Ignition conference this week on some projects he has coming in relation to his hit series Power.

In a sit-down interview, 50 along with Starz's CEO Chris Albrecht, told moderator Nathan McAlone that although he'll no longer appear on the Omari Hardwick-headed show, he'll be bringing three spin-offs from the show into on-air fruition.

One of the spin-offs will be a prequel revolving around 50's slain character Kanan. Meanwhile, all three spin-offs will be moving simultaneously, according to Albrecht.

"The prequel is my spin-off. I get the chance to come back. I'm dead," 50 said. "It's cool, though. It gives the chance to show the world where all of these characters grew in so you can see the defining moments that developed their imperfections that people are attracted to at the moment. It's exciting. It's TGE, the golden era."

Albrecht chimed in on 50's announcement, saying, "I'm happy to have them all work, but we're determined to have at least one.

"it's important because there's a lot of fans out there that want to see more of those characters and new stuff like BMF [Black Mafia Family], which is going to be amazing. Not easy, but amazing."

Black Mafia Family is another show that will be overseen by 50, about the infamous drug organization that ran rampant in the 1980s headed by Demetrius "Big Meech" Flenory.

This news comes almost two months after the October announcement that 50 signed a multi-series deal with the network worth up to $150 million.

Check out the conversation below.

Snoop Dogg Advises Kevin Hart To Tell The Oscars To "Suck A D**k"

Kevin Hart has pulled out of hosting the Oscars after refusing to apologize for his resurfaced tweets that appeared to share homophobic views. The gig may have been Hart's dream job, but Snoop Dogg is telling him not to worry. Instead, he suggested the comedian should tell the Academy to "suck a d**k."

Snoop gave Kevin some advice in a video on Instagram on Friday (Dec. 7). "Don't trip, that ain't our kind of shit anyways. Oscars? Yeah right, come do the BET Awards," Snoop said in the video. "They don't care. You a comedian, crackin' jokes...really? Y'all want me to host it now? Nah, I don't think so. I got s**t to do, and I got way more customers before I get to you. Kevin Hart, smoke a blunt. Tell the Academy to suck a d**k or die trying. F**k 'em. We still love you, n***a."

As previously reported, Kevin Hart landed at the center of controversy after someone re-discovered his tweets from 2011. He reportedly claimed that he would hit his son if he was ever caught playing with dolls. The comedian stated that the Academy called him Thursday night (Dec. 6), and gave him an ultimatum: apologize or step aside. Hart decided to pass on the apology and later stepped down from his position. Amidst his exit, he also offered an apology to the LGBTQ+ community. "I sincerely apologize to the LGBTQ community for my insensitive words from my past," he said.

The Academy hasn't announced a new host at this time. The 91st Oscars ceremony will kick off on Feb. 24, 2019. Check out Snoop's advice to Hart in the video below.
