Mimi Faust has nothing to hide, but she still wants to preserve her good name in the face of her sex tape scandal.
After Nikko made women’s collective skin crawl by eagerly (if not gleefully) watching their home movie with a sobbing Mimi, the professional organizer has seriously started thinking about damage control. He’s a creep for sure, but she’s got a business to think about!
On the next episode of “Love & Hip Hop: Atlanta,” Mimi is seeking some help from a media trainer named Richelle. She’s the closest thing that ATL has to Olivia Pope; she’s even got the same hairdo!
“I have a lot experience in dealing with touchy situations,” Richelle explained on their first meeting at a restaurant.
Mimi has no illusions about the fact that she’s about to be bombarded with questions and criticisms once the tape goes public. For someone that wasn’t ashamed of what they did, Mimi seems more than a little frazzled. Richelle, however, suggests that Mimi toughen up in order to be a strong example for her daughter.
Find out what other advice Richelle has for Mimi, and whether any of it involves dumping Nikko, when “L&HHATL” airs Monday at 8 p.m. on VH1.
