Love and Hip Hop’s Mimi Faust Explains the Secret to Her Sex Tape Shower Rod Scene — Watch!

Get a grip!

Earlier this week, Love & Hip Hop Atlanta’s Mimi Faust came clean to Us Weekly about her infamous 2014 sex tape with ex-boyfriend Nikko London. Now, the 43-year-old mom wants to explain a scene that had fans talking — and experimenting! 

In Mimi and Nikko: Scandal in Atlanta, Mimi hangs from a shower rod as she and Nikko, 39, get nasty.

“I was just hot and sweaty,” Mimi dishes to Us Weekly. “I was beating myself up the whole time about the tape. I never thought that the shower thing would’ve went so viral.” 

Their dirty deed launched many failed experiments (including Real Housewives of Atlanta’s Kandi Burrussattempt!), injuries, and, umm…shower rod sales?

Last year, TMZ reported that major stores — including Lowe’s, Target, and Walmart — were selling out of strong rods as fans rushed to “recreate the Mimi experience.”

“At Home Depot, they literally wrote ‘Mimi Shower Rods’ and stuck that where the rod was…because so many people were asking,” Mimi confirms.

While her acrobatics appeared to be impressive, Mimi wants fans to take heed before hanging.

“Please do not grab onto that shower rod by yourself and think that it’s going to support your weight. It’s not,” Mimi warns. “Your partner has to be holding you up!”
