It pays well to be Mimi Faust! The 46-year-old is one of the original stars of VH1's Love & Hip Hop: Atlanta and ranks as one of just three people to star in all seven of the VH1 reality show's seasons so far. With that kind of tenure, she must be raking in the dough, right? So what's Mimi Faust's net worth? And what's her salary? We've got the scoop below…
According to Celebrity Net Worth, Mimi's net worth is estimated at $2 million and she earns $20,000 for each episode of the show. She has certainly come a long way since she was a model in Pharrell Williams' "Frontin'" music video in 2003. Who would have known back then that she'd become one of the most famous reality stars?
Mimi's big showbiz break came in 2012, when VH1 cast her in the Atlanta-based spinoff of the original Love & Hip Hop series, alongside musician and producer Stevie J, aka the father of her daughter, Eva. And she has weathered all the drama since, sticking around for all seven seasons along with Karlie Redd and Rasheeda.
In addition to that reality money, Mimi is also reaping royalties from porn company Vivid Entertainment. As we saw on Love & Hip Hop: Atlanta, Mimi and then-boyfriend Nikko Smith claimed a sex tape of theirs had been stolen and sold by a third party, but then came reports Mimi herself had sold the tape for $100,000. Mimi later 'fessed up and admitted the tape was staged. She called it a "stupid decision," but she also said, "I get a check every quarter for the rest of my life." (Nikko might also be getting a share of that money, too: Celebrity Net Worth claims his net worth is $100k.)
Mimi also has a cleaning business called Keep It Clean Atlanta and a side hustle as an interior designer. "It's [a] no brainer that Mimi has a touch for perfectionism and home decor," her website says of Mimi Interiors. So between her entrepreneurial spirit, her reality stardom, and her profitable sex tape, Mimi Faust's net worth is only rising, we'd imagine!
