The new “character” making a bow on tonight’s episode of “Love & Hip Hop Atlanta” may be hilarious to everybody EXCEPT her reality show castmates.
Because in real life Lovely Mimi already has the kind of social media following people join these kinds of shows (and do all kinds of things) to generate.
“I wasn’t trying to build a huge audience, at first,” she claims. “I just had fun. Then people started sharing my videos…”
Lovely Mimi has a husband, two children and nail shop on Old National Highway; a profession she chose because “nail work was a good job with no education.”
(“I was never in high school or even middle school,” she says of a childhood that included group homes and juvenile facilities.)
“When you find somebody like that, [who] already is a star.” Ryan Cameron predicts, “they may make everybody else a little jealous.”
