Mimi Faust Discusses Same-Sex Relationship with WNBA Player Tamera Young
Mimi Faust has already experienced having a relationship play out on a reality show and has decided to keep her new romance with WNBA star, Tamera Young, out of the public eye. 

During a recent interview with Rolling Out, Tamera discussed her relationship with the "Love & Hip Hop: Atlanta" star Mimi Faust. Mimi has decided to keep her romantic relationship off the show because she realizes what reality television can do to a relationship.  

Mimi was asked by the site, "What can you tell us about Tamera that we probably wouldn’t know?" Mimi replied that "Ty is super shy. I mean, super shy." 

Mimi's life may appear to be an open book due to starring on reality television, but Tamera reveals there is another side to her girlfriend.

Tamera appears to think that her girlfriend is a bit misunderstood. She gushed over Faust, stating, "[Mimi] has the biggest heart. She’s a great woman and sometimes I feel like she’s maybe too nice."

Mimi revealed during her Rolling Out interview that she has already signed on for the seventh season, but she won't be including her relationship with Tamera on the show. The basketball star said she won't be included on the show because "they like their relationship."

Mimi was asked, "Can we expect to see you in this upcoming season of "LHHATL"? Faust stated that she had already signed a contract to star on the reality show for Season 7. 

She was asked if Tamera would appear on the show or if her "shyness" would stop that from happening. Mimi replied, "No, it’s not that she’s shy …" Tamera jumped in to add, "We like our relationship."

Faust then added, "Right! Every time someone gets on television with their relationship, it gets messed up. We’re trying to manage what we have. If she does a cameo, it’ll be Facetime or a phone call. But if we do it, I need to be sure it’s going to be a safe scene."

Faust hasn't hidden the fact that she is into women and has been rumored to be dating the basketball player since last season. She revealed last year that she had a new girlfriend. 

Mimi was attempting to keep her relationship with Tamera on the down-low and played coy on the subject once rumors began swirling in 2016. At that time, some media outlets claimed that Faust was actually introduced to the Chicago Sky guard by her ex, Stevie J. Young even appeared on an episode of Stevie J’s spinoff show, "Stevie & Joseline."

Mimi was first linked romantically to the WNBA player back in July of last year and dropped a major hint about her relationship on social media in August. Faust shared a photo of a beautiful bouquet of red roses, writing in the caption, "Magical.. Made my heart sing…!!! #100longstemroses Thank You." She also tagged the Chicago Sky player in the photo.

Magical..🌹Made my heart sing...!!!! #100longstemroses 🌹🌹🌹🌹🌹🌹... Thank You😊

Mimi shocked fans last year when she revealed she was dating a woman, debuting Chris Gould to her co-stars on Season 5 of "Love & Hip Hop: Atlanta." Their relationship ended, but Faust is obviously sticking to dating women for now.

The 47-year-old reality star was blasted on social media over her sexual preference previously. Mimi hopped on Instagram to clap back at the rude remarks. She wrote, "In 2016 we should not be using gay and lesbian as a way to degrade someone. Someone’s sexuality is not a reflection of their character and more importantly what type of parent they are. … We should continue the strides we have made over the last 50+ years and allow people to be who they are."

Faust has stated that she doesn't like to be called labeled a gay woman, explaining, "I wouldn’t necessarily say that I’m gay. I like people — I like personalities and I’m attracted to who I’m attracted to."

During the six season of "LHHATL", Mimi and Joseline have been at odds. However, there was a time when the two women were involved in a love triangle with Stevie J and even took part in threesomes. After all the crazy drama, Faust turned her attention to dating only women.
