Written by thejasminebrand in Blog

Wednesday morning, Ariane, the unofficial cast member of LHHA’s, visited Power 105’s ‘The Breakfast Club’. Ariane, who is best friends with Mimi Faust, dished on why she thinks Mimi will definitely leave Stevie J, clarified her romantic relationship with K.Michelle’s ex-boyfriend Memphitz (she confessed that they had sex, but never dated), whether or not she believed that Memphitz was physically abusive and why she’s not upset with Joseline. Peep a few excerpts.

On why she doesn’t like Stevie J:

It’s not that I don’t like Stevie, it’s that I don’t like his ways.

On why she argues with Mimi so much, over her relationship with Stevie:

We fight all the time. She fights me more than anything. Behind closed doors, Mimi fights me.

On how she feels about Joseline:
I have respect for her (Joseline). I undrstand where she comes from.
On if Joseline is a man:
I didn’t say she was a man. She’s not a man. She has a strong face. A lot of women have strong faces.
On if Stevie J has ever been abusive to Mimi:
I did not say yes. Don’t do that. I’m not saying anything.I’ve seen behavior that I don’t like.
On if she use to date Memphitz (K.Michelle’s ex boyfriend and Toya Wright’s husband):
He’s a very good friend of mine. He use to work together.
On if she had sex with Memphitz:
Yes.
On why she never shared that she’d been intimate with Memphitz on the show:
And that’s the thing. I don’t talk about things that aren’t relevant.
If Memphitz was ever physically abusive to her:
Absoluely not, he’s a great guy.
If she feels a man should ever put his hands on a woman:
I’m not saying women should be hit, but sometimes b*tches need to be slapped.
On where she’s currently employed:
I bartend at Diamondz in Atlanta, it’s a strip club. That’s the first strip club, I ever bartended at.
