Did Stevie J create what viewers saw on “Love and Hip Hop Atlanta” for fame, stardom and a chance at reviving his music career ? According to Mimi Faust, the producer/artist would do anything, including the show, to “get back on top” no matter who he hurt in the process.
“I think Stevie was tunnel vision, self centered (he wanted to be back on top) and he did whatever it took for him to be there… period,” Faust said candidly.
Sitting down for a one-on-one interview, Faust also agreed with executive producer Mona Scott Young when she said Stevie basically wanted to be a star again no matter what.
“Absolutely,” Faust said before admitting there were signs that he was perhaps desperate as time went by. “Stevie is a man in the music industry. Of course there were signs here and there.”
As previously reported, Mimi Faust said the entire situation surrounding “Love & Hip Hop Atlanta” happened within a short span of time. She claimed she got a call, auditioned and before she knew it they were filming. Despite what has transpired, including Stevie’s relationship with Joseline, Mimi Faust has no regrets because the show opened her eyes.
“No regrets. Everything is on the table now,” says Faust. “Had I not done this show everything would not be on the table.”
