Behind-the-scenes we heard buzz that the two had ended things while filming and apparently that is absolutely the case. Earlier this year, Mimi introduced the public to her relationship, via an interview on popular radio station, V-103. The two went on air, telling radio personally Egypt Sherrod:
She’s the one. I mean look at her. That glow is for a reason. I moved to Atlanta for Mimi. I’m also bringing a project out here, the Nikko and Johnny project.
But in a more recent interview, after this week’s episode aired, Mimi confirmed that it was officially over. And as far as his intentions with her, well, she doesn’t feel like she was being totally used:
I don’t think Nikko was using me. If you ask me everyone is an opportunist. Everyone in this world is an opportunist and if you’re not, then something may be wrong. I don’t think he was using me. He was trying to get what he was trying do at the forefront and I don’t blame him. I would of done the same thing if I was him. Joseline was doing it to Stevie J. Everyone was doing it, so it is what it is.
And things officially fall apart on camera, during next week’s episode. Apparently, Nikko got a little too flirty with castmate Karlie Redd. During the upcoming episode the two get into a heated argument with Mimi yelling:
You’re trying to get with Karlie Redd. I spoke to her today. You tryna get at her. You tryna get her number. You tryna contact her. You reaching out to hear this one, that one and the third one.
Eeek. Watch the teaser.
P.S. What a difference a day makes. Thursday night, both Nikko and Mimi showed up together at Kandi Burruss’ ‘Kandi Koated Knights’ show.
