Female rapper-turned-reality star Rasheeda from Love & Hip Hop: Atlanta is currently going through it with her husband/kids father’s Kirk Frost. To make matters worse, she’s 7 1/2 months pregnant with Kirk’s child. If you have been keeping up with this season of LHHATL, then you already know that the married couple is having problems. A few episodes ago, Rasheeda confirmed to Kirk that she’s with child and he immediately asked her to terminate the pregnancy and when she refused too, he requested her to take a DNA test because he “believes the baby might not be his.” According to Kirk, “rappers are known to sleep around.”
On last night’s episode, Kirk had Twitter and Facebook buzzing after he decided to leave his pregnant wife (Rasheeda) at home and go on a vacation with Benzino and Bobby V. Inside of a cabin in the woods; the fellas played strip poker and got their freak on with some basic chicks in a hot tub. It ended with Kirk going into one of the bedrooms with two of the chicks.
Poor Rasheeda is trying her hardest to work things out with Kirk and save their marriage but after last night’s episode, I don’t know what the future has in store for these two. She recently called WGCI’s Tony Scuilfield and the Morning Riot radio to discuss the status of their relationship (listen to the audio here). Below are some highlights via Necole Bitchie:
On If She’s Forgiven Him
“You try to forgive but you can’t forget. I’m at a place where I’m like, ‘Wow, you really went there with me,’ but I’m with child. I’m not gon’ overstress myself or overwhelm myself. Am I standing there like, ‘Oh baby yes, I’m cool. I forgive everything.’ Hell nah.[…]Right now he’s working hard trying to get back into my good graces. Just keeping it 100.
On If He’s Going to Be in the Child’s Life
That’s something him and the Lord have to deal with if he decides he don’t want to be in the child’s life. You’re in a marriage. You’re in a commitment, and just because eleven months ago, twelve months ago, you’re with it, and then decide a little bit later you don’t want it doesn’t mean nothing to me. At the end of the day, the man ain’t carrying the baby. The man ain’t doing none of those type of things, so I believe in a marriage, you compromise. That’s what a relationship is about.
On Their Business Relationship
It’s just trying to make it work. At the end of the day, as long as we’ve been together and all the business stuff we do have together, we have a couple of companies that [we’ve partnered in.] You can’t just cut those ties off. We do have bills and things need to be taken care of.
On Him Taking Her Name Off the Business Account
I’m not worried about that because when you’re a boss b—h, you got your own bread. Like, oh wow, I’m gon’ really be sad. Okay, whatever.
On What Advice She Has For Other Couples
I advise people who have gone through whatever — because there are people who have gone through way worse situations than what Kirk and I are going through and have made it through — I advise people not to give up immediately. Give it a try and when you give it all that you can really give it, then you look to do other things.
Rasheeda isn’t the only reality chick that’s going through it. In a recent interview with Ebony magazine, K. Foxx revealed that she was fired from her morning show post on NYC’s Hot 97; after almost three-year. The news is shocking to us all! Not only did Foxx get fired from her morning show, but it is also being reported that the Gossip Game got cancelled. The show won’t be renewed for a second season. Foxx is speaking out to Ebony and below are some highlights:
So word broke that you’ve left HOT-97. You’re not going to be on the air over there anymore?
No, I’m not…Do you find that odd?
How do your co-hosts, Rosenberg and Cipha Sounds feel about you not being at the station anymore?
They’re shocked. And confused…I’m a good person. I always came in to work I wasn’t a bitch to anyone. I always smiled. Did lots of events. I was a team player. [DJ Funkmaster] Flex called me and he said: “You didn’t deserve this. You rode for HOT-97.” I wore that logo on my back.
Do you think VH1’s Gossip Game reality TV show contributed to problems at work?
I really don’t know. I really don’t know. I didn’t know I had any problems at work. If I did, that’s news to me.

What did you think when Ebro Darden said on the show that “you’ve seen all the rappers’ Johnsons” and that you “got your job” at HOT-97 by sleeping with someone–that you “slept your way to the top”?
I was thinking—is he saying that “the top” is HOT- 97? That’s the top? For me it’s not. So, I just think that when somebody says that they’re just trying to be malicious and hurtful and they just have no idea of who I am or what my story is. That’s why it’s so important for me to do interviews like this. Because you go through so many things, and you don’t want to be a b*tch if you will and lash out but there are little girls who are looking at us.
One thing that I will say about it was that it was hurtful. Because the person that said it, my program director, is the one that hired me. And he brought me in and he knew that was not the truth. So why are you going to play with me like that? Why are you going to play with my livelihood like that?
Why do you think he did that?
I have no idea. I thought about it, constantly, and I can’t come up with any answers.
Were you two not getting along very well?
I think that it’s a weird thing to work with your boss [on air] on a constant basis. We were working as a team–myself, Cipha and Rosenberg. Then all of a sudden we were working [on the air] with our boss. Our little [confrontation] was what was caught on camera, but I wasn’t the only one who got into it with him. Everyone did. It’s just an interesting dynamic that happens when you have to start working on the air with your boss. How do you adjust? How do you not say certain things? How do you fall back? Because ultimately, what he says, goes. But when we’re in the studio and we’re all equal, we have a conversation; but when your boss is in the studio, how do you argue? [Which is what we do on the show.]
What they caught in the Gossip Game was a statement that I did not agree with. Yeah, a joke is a joke. We do that all the time. One of the things with that morning show was that it was a comedy routine because Cipha is really into comedy and people like to laugh in the morning. I get it. But there are certain things, as a woman, that you don’t play with, and that’s our sexuality, because we are perceived in so many ways. And that’s not one of the ways you want to be perceived, especially if you want to be taken seriously.
Do you think he had a problem with you checking him on that?
I have no idea, but at that point. I really didn’t care because I thought that if he did that once, then he would think he could do that again and again. So I had to put my foot down and say: I’m not cool with this. You’re my program director. So if you’re talking to me like that, how are other people going to perceive me? They’re going to think they can disrespect me. You’re supposed to be protecting me. This is your staff. This is who you rep for. You’re not supposed to talk to us like that. He belittled me and demeaned me. So I really, really took it hard. To the point where I felt like: Why did he hire me in the first place if he’s going to belittle me and demean me? It was kind of like a weird, sinister…..It was real sinister and evil and mean. It hurt me. That’s not funny. If somebody did that to your little sister or your mom, you’d go check them.
So do you think that episode caused your relationship to deteriorate?
I have no idea. I think that maybe he thought that I probably wouldn’t stand up for myself. And when I did he thought maybe I’m more powerful than he thought. I’m not going to be able to bully her like I bully everybody else. He figures he’s the program director/VP and I’m not going to say anything about his little joke. But yes I am, because I know my self-worth and I know what I did to get to where I am and “sleeping my way to the top” was not one of them.
Do you have to kiss a lot of a*s in the radio industry?
Definitely. It’s male dominated, and men love to have their egos stroked. And if you’re not stroking their ego in the way that they want you to stroke them then I guess there’s a target on your back.
