‘Love & Hip-Hop’s’ Rasheeda On Faking Storyline For TV, Kirk Cheating, Her Poiz Cosmetics Line & More


Love & Hip-Hop’s Rasheeda recently did an interview with Vibe Vixen. The independent rapper-turned-reality star used Mona Scott Young’s executive produced show as a platform to showcase her entrepreneurship skills by launching her own line of cosmetics called Poiz. In season one, everything seemed to be good between Rasheeda and her husband Kirk. She was recording music, and living the family life with her husband and their children. Things changed in season two when Rasheeda told Kirk that she was with child. He immediately requested her to abort their baby and she refused too. One thing led to another and Kirk decided to cheat on his wife while she’s pregnant with his child. In her interview with Vibe Vixen, Rasheeda talked about if their storyline was fake for TV, Kirk cheating on her, forgiving him, working things out, her cosmetics line and much more. Below are some excerpts:


It was rumored that you and Kirk’s storyline would be replaced for lack of drama. Following those rumors, your marital issues were heavily showcased during the second season, which caused viewers to believe the drama was just for TV. How do you feel about that?
Everybody has that mindset like these shows are off the chart…that they are all fake. Coming into the show initially it was something that Kirk didn’t even want to do. So he was in a place like, “I’m just here because of you.” We had a lot of issues in our marriage, but we didn’t put them on the table at the beginning because we were new to all this. We were green to the whole reality TV situation. And then we were both thinking about my artistry and the things I’m trying to do. We just tried to keep everything on the up-and-up for the most part.

So what changed in season two?
The crazy thing about it is relationships have problems all the time. And we were going through some things then that we didn’t even put all of the situation out there on television. But coming into the second season we were both like, “You know what? Let’s just let our realities be what they are…and make it do what it do.” What people have to understand is nobody’s relationship is perfect. But I’ve talked to people that have problems way worse than me and Kirk have been through [laughs]. I’m going to keep it real. Half these hoes have been through the same things we were going through, but they want to act like they are perfect. But with us it just played out on TV.

What was your reaction when you found out that Kirk was cheating on you? 
I was angry and disappointed because I felt as though my teammate let me down, you know? Although he confessed that nothing really happened, it’s just the fact that you felt you needed to go that far to get my attention. Especially at the time I was pregnant and going through a lot of things as your wife and as your friend. One thing I have realized about being on reality TV is people are going to talk about your ass no matter what. I could be out here being the best woman feeding the hungry and putting the homeless in houses…it wouldn’t make no difference. But the moment you have some ratchetness going on people are really going to talk about you. But I expected that.

The two of you were out in Vegas recently. Is it safe to say you are working on your marriage? Are you and Kirk in a better space now?
When you’ve been married for 13 years and have businesses and kids together you find a way to work it out. I haven’t had a problem with a husband that has been involved in constant infidelity. This is the first time we have gone through something on this level. It would be different if you saw this dude out here running around here on a regular [laughs]. People would be looking at me like, “This bitch is stupid.” But even when you go through things like that being friends as long as we have been we should be able to talk through certain situations. I don’t give a damn about anyone else’s opinion. It’s about what’s in my heart and what the Lord has instilled in me. We have a baby on the way…I have stepchildren. I’m not rushing into a divorce. Love don’t turn off like a light switch.

This year you released your own line of cosmetics called Poiz. How has that whole experience been for you? 
It’s been great. I just took my time with it. I didn’t want to be the face of someone else’s brand. I didn’t want to just get with a manufacturer that already had products and just throw my name on it and not have anything to do with developing colors. So I got with a company where I could develop my own colors and I have 40 different glosses and lipsticks. I have eye shadows and blushes and things that I have created. And it’s my own company. I have the neutral and working mom type of things that women like, but I also have the fun and funky stuff for the girls that like the bright colors and to be extremely popping and over-the-top with their makeup. It’s doing so well online that I have to thank God.
