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.

As November comes to a close, many publications will be crafting their year-end lists for all things pop culture. Forbes released a ranking of the world's highest-paid women in music on Monday (Nov. 19), with Beyoncé, Jennifer Lopez, and Rihanna holding it down for women of color.

Beyoncé comes in at No. 3 on the list with an earning of $60 million as she made most of her money through her historical Coachella performance, the joint album with husband JAY-Z, Everything is Love, and the Carters' On The Run II Tour in support of its release.

Jennifer Lopez made No. 6 for earnings tallying of over $47 million thanks to her lucrative Las Vegas residency, endorsements, and shows including World of Dance where she serves as a judge.

Rihanna follows behind the "Love Don't Cost A Thing" diva at No. 7 with earnings of over $37.5 million. Although she hasn't toured since 2016—thanks to her cosmetics and lingerie lines, Fenty Beauty and Savage Lingerie—the Bajan pop star has been keeping herself busy.

Forbes' annual list (which factors in pretax earnings from June 1, 2017, through June 1, 2018) has placed Katy Perry at the top with over $83 million in profits due to her gig as an American Idol judge and her 80-date Witness: The Tour that brought in an estimated $1 million per night.

Kelly Rowland Hops In Her Bag With New Single "Kelly"

Kelly Rowland has it all and isn't afraid to brag about it on her new single, "Kelly."

Released Thursday (Nov. 22), the singer goes the clubby, confident route while rightfully dropping her attributes like her relationship with God, smoldering looks (a.k.a the drip) among other things. With "Kelly" being the first single since her 2013's Talk a Good Game, the singer comes out swinging, reminding everyone of her power in the game.

The mother of one has promised that her new tunes will be edgier and most honest than her past work that included vulnerable tracks like "Dirty Laundry" and massive hits like "Motivation" and "Commander." Speaking with Vogue over the summer, Ms. Kelly disclosed a few details behind the album.

“It’s about love, loss, and gain and whether it’s professional or with family or whatever, it’s just honest," she said. "I had no choice but to be honest and authentic with this record: it’s about friendship and marriage.”

She also explained a drop in confidence caused her hiatus. “I was thinking about pulling back from recording, but I couldn’t help myself: I still wanted to record. I still felt like I was missing something. The third year just came and left so fast. The fourth year I said: ‘I have to get to work’ and now I’m ready to release some music! I felt like I wasted so much time, and it was my husband who actually called me out on it. He said: ‘Babe, as great as those records were, I think you were nervous, you got gun-shy’, and when he said that it was like boom, a gong went off.”

Glad to have you back, Ms. Kelly. Listen to the eponymous record up top.
