For Real or for Cameras? Mimi Faust Claims She's a Lesbian

See the reality star's new bae.

Published April 5, 2016

Mimi Faust brought a big surprise to the Love & Hip Hop: Atlanta premiere last night: a new boo, who happens to be a woman.

The reality star introduced her girlfriend, Chris Gould, to her co-stars during the episode, explaining that they've been together for a few months but are just now going public with their relationship (being on a reality show will do that). Her friends seem shocked, to be sure, but also happy for her. 

Watch their reaction below:

Since Chris is about to become a major storyline on Love & Hip Hop, it's time to get to know her a little better. According to VH1, she's a paralegal for a personal injury attorney but has aspirations in the music business, and she met Mimi at a nightclub sometime last year. Oh, and she's seen the sex tape. "It was awkward," Chris admits.

Of course, the timing of this relationship is definitely worthy of some side-eye, but after Mimi's last couple of relationships, maybe a change of pace with a down-to-earth partner will be a good thing. Guess we'll just have to tune in and see.
