Reality Recap: Love & Hip Hop Atlanta ‘Change of Course’

In this episode of Love and Hip Hop Atlanta "Change of Course," it seemed as if every couple was reshaping their relationship. Some were for the better; others for the worse.

Already on the outs with Puerto Rican princess Joseline, Stevie J. wanted to make things right with his ‘wife,’ so he decided to charm his way back into her heart with a little love in the tub. Meanwhile, Rasheeda needs a break from all of the drama in her life so she, Karli Redd and Kaleena hit the road for a girls' trip to New Orleans.

On the way there Karli tells the girls about her run-in with Benzino and his new girlfriend Althea. After “messy mouth” Kirk started rumors, the couple believed that Karli wanted Benzino back, but Karli says that was not the case at all. She is happy with Young Joc and in typical Karli Redd style she decided the best way to show how much happier she was with Joc was by posting a pic stich of Joc and Benzino’s man parts side by side to compare.

Karli wasn’t the only one talking about Benzino’s new girl. After hearing that Althea had been involved with baby daddy, Stevie J., and her man Nikko, Mimi confronted Nikko to make sure that Althea was solely apart of the past. Nikko immaturely tells Mimi that he could get Althea if he wanted to which later causes Mimi to bring up the lipstick stains that she found on the inside of shirt collar. After going off Mimi decides to send Nikko packing and kicks him out the house.

Erica Dixon also lets her man O’Shea (The Model) go. Erica tells her friend that she is tired of being the sugar mama and caring the relationship. After analyzing her current relationship she decides to meet up with her baby daddy Scrappy and tell him how being with O’Shea helped her appreciate the things he did for their family. When O’Shea finds out that Erica met up with Scrappy he drives off and leaves but he runs out of gas and needs Erica to come and give him gas money. “His a** can’t even make a dramatic exit without my help”, says Erica.

While the girls are living it up in NOLA, Rasheeda gets a call from her mother saying that Kirk took a DNA test for baby Karter. Rasheeda is once again hurt by her husband’s actions but her friends decide that they will not let be down. On there way back to the hotel from a masquerade party, everyone is shocked to find Kirk standing their waiting for his wife. He apologizes for the numerous mistakes he has made in their relationship and puts his and her wedding rings back on. Through her heartfelt tears, Rasheeda says that she accepts her husband’s apology but she has to really think about if she can handle staying with him and moving forward.

Solitary Alignment: 5 Self-Affirming Reads For Single Ladies On Valentine’s Day

Ahh, the Feast of Saint Valentine—the Hallmark holiday that strikes us with its arrow each year, for better or for worse, depending on your bae status. While the romantic holiday is adored and celebrated by many, if you’re still reeling over, say, your ex’s refusal to commit, chances are Feb. 14 is more of a heartache for you than anything.

But as a wise woman once said, “If they liked it then they should’ve put a ring on it.” So whether V-Day has you scared of lonely or sulking over a lost love, as another wise woman once said, they “would be SUPER lucky to even set eyes on you this Valentine’s Day. That’s it. That’s the gift.” Shout out to The Slumflower.

Sure, having a bae on Valentine’s Day is cool, but so is reminding yourself why you’re just fine without one (cue Webbie’s “Independent”). In fact, single folks have better relationships overall, according to the Journal of Social and Personal Relationships. You know how the old adage goes: love yourself before loving someone else.

For this Valentine’s Day, VIBE Vixen rounds up a nourishing list of books for our sisters doin’ it for themselves. Consider this your reminder of how badass you are—because you are! Oh, oh, oh. *Beyoncé voice*

BET’s 'Boomerang' Recap: Can You Really Hate The Player?

It’s game night at Bryson’s crib and at this point, you have to wonder if he’s playing himself. Clubs ain’t for everybody, especially Bryson who would much rather spend a Friday night shouting out clues to his boo Simone. Judging by her uncanny ability to keep it real in episode one, it should be pretty obvious that Simone hates playing games, but we digress.

The ladies arrive after a walk and talk of d**k appointments and the gentlemen’s faces are beaming with schoolboy joy. The friend zone portal Bryson always finds himself in opens up even wider when new dudes come to join in on the fun. Simone’s excitement to “meet new people” has Bryson feeling so jealous that he damn near blows steam when an almondy young man accidentally bumps into her. Its official: Bryson’s insecurity level has reached a 10.

As Tara reluctantly Insastories the night’s dull festivities, Ari gives his homie Bryson the cold, hard truth: Simone does not want his a**. Out on the balcony, Crystal and David (RJ Walker) have a moment; the two clearly have history. A shared beer and a couple of laughs reveal that David is an aspiring preacher, begging us to wonder if that’s why little Creflo’s relationship with Crystal didn’t last. The newly invited pizza guy, Shawn, makes his crush on Simone crystal clear and Bryson. Loses. His. Sh*t. Damn, we heard the friend zone was a cold place but we never thought it was that brick. Simone and her new eye candy rendezvous en route to and from the bathroom where Shawn makes a very forward ask to keep Simone company in her bed.  We’re not even going to hold you all, Simone was out; my mans didn’t even have to ask her twice. Le sigh. Poor Bryson. He just keeps taking L after L.

Okay, so remember kitchen bae who bumped into Simone making Bryson get all Mighty Mouse? Well, the gag is, his eyes are just for Ari (Leland B. Martin) and the two make their exit for a steamy hot tub sesh. Bryson feels stupid now, but at least someone is getting a happy ending.  Confused as to why the love of his life doesn’t view him the same, Bryson looks to pastor David for some well-needed reaffirmations. Repeat after me: Everything happens in God’s timing. A spirit of prayer, a childhood photo, and spin of Ahmad’s “Back In The Day” is just what Bryson needs to finally feel the relief he was yearning for all night.

This season of BET’s Boomerang looks like it will be filled with bomb hairstyles, plenty of passion, and some “aww sh*****t” moments.

Tune in to Boomerang on BET every Tuesday at 10/9c to see if this nice guy will ever finish first.
