VH1 reality stars Rasheeda and estranged husband Kirk Frost seem to be in a better place. During season two of Love & Hip Hop Atlanta, the only married couple on the show infamously hit a rough patch as the world (and us) tuned in every week. In a recent interview with Mara the Socialite, Rasheeda opens up about their martial woes since having their newborn son, Karter. Peep out a few of the excepts below.
On The New Baby Karter:
He’s great, he’s absolutely great! He’s just a handsome little angel. Of course you know the first month – we haven’t reached our first month yet – but yeah, it’s rough. It’s every 3 hours. Doesn’t matter the time. Twelve midnight, three in the morning, six, nine, twelve, it’s no joke.
How Kirk Is Embracing Fatherhood Despite His Initial Reaction:
He’s actually just amazing to be honest with you. He’s just been a great father, he’s been, you know, allowing me to get my rest as much as possible, and regardless to the fact that you can’t get past the crying that you hear from the baby, but he’s been really, really great. You know he’s always been a good father regardless of how it looked on television as far as the things he said about ‘I’m tired of raising kids,’ and whatnot, you know. He has four adult children, you know. Over 18 [years old] kids that he was more so speaking about, but as far as him in Karter’s life, he’s just been 100% just doing his damn thing.
I mean you just take it one day at a time, and the main thing is just being parents number one, and then just continuing to grow our friendship, and to try to get back in a place. But you just don’t rush things, you just take one day at a time and just keep it moving.
I think so, because we’ve been through so many different things in our relationship. Then you’ve got everybody weighing in and trying to see what’s going on…I’m not saying the same issues, but just different issues within your marriage, you know what I’m saying. And I look at it like it’s relationship problems, it’s marital problems – some people can’t relate because they haven’t been in a relationship or marriage. At the end of the day, yeah, it does seem like it could be a reality curse, but I’m not 100% saying that happened in my relationship, but I think with it playing out on TV and stuff like that, and you having so many people weighing in on it, sometimes people get persuaded by outsiders, you know what I’m saying. But you’ve just got to follow your heart and do what’s best for you as an individual and as the person living in the relationship..
We came back season 2 so we wouldn’t on the chopping block. And, like I said, everybody has problems; ain’t nobody perfect. I got pregnant, and Kirk wasn’t happy about it. The sh*t was the real deal. He felt like he felt, and went and did what he did, and that’s him. It wasn’t no ficitious sh*t. I mean, people go through stuff, and the killer part that really be bugging me out is, the reason why people could relate so much is a lot of us been through that type of situation. The things that were going on with me and Kirk…you know what, if you’re on reality TV, and you’re going through some sh*t, then you’re going through it, and that’s what it is, and people can weigh in and say they feel like this and they feel like that, they can say what they want to say, but we have real issues. We have other sh*t that goes on in our relationship that people may not have seen just for the simple fact that it’s too many damn people on the show, and you don’t have all that camera time to speak to everybody. At the end of the day, we’re real people with real issues, with real problems, and the difference is it played out on TV with cameras in front of us, straight up and down.
