Lovely Myha Thi Luong, a Vietnamese-American nail salon owner, reality TV personality, singer, and internet superstar, goes by the online identity Mimi. She is most known for her 2017 appearance on the VH1 reality series “Love & Hip Hop: Atlanta.” She is one of the top nail technicians in the nation and is affectionately known by her followers as the “nail architect.” She is also a well-known Instagram user with 2.4 million followers who gained notoriety for posting clips in which she mimicked stereotyped accents, including that of a Vietnamese nail technician, an African-American client, an irate driver, and others. She and the English boy band 5ive collaborated on the hip-hop single “We Don’t Care,” which was released in September 2016. ‘My Lovely Life: The Good, the Bad, and the Ugly’ was the title of the book she was co-writing with author Angela Stanton when it was announced in the beginning of 2018 that she would co-star in the third season of the BET HER series ‘From the Bottom Up’.
Become a Star
Lovely The greatest alternative Mimi could find as an Asian because she “was never in high school or even middle school” was nail work. ‘Luong’s Lovely Nails’ is the name of the nail parlor she purchased in Capitol Heights, Maryland. She made the decision to sign up for Instagram and started using the account “mimilovelynails” to post pictures and videos from her salon in an effort to spread the word about it. She followed a lot of girls as well in an effort to get them to visit her shop. Although it had some popularity, she later opened a new Instagram account called “itslovelymimi” and started posting regular cosmetics and nail tutorials. With the help of superstars like Da Brat and Snoop Dogg, one of her videos, “But Why Mimi,” went viral on social media. She gained a sizable fan base right away on many social media sites, particularly Instagram.
Fans then started posting collections of her videos and creating blog pieces about her. She was referred to as the “ratchet Asian girl” on one particular site, which, while it may appear offensive to some, didn’t bother Mimi because she was used to making jokes about stereotypes. In fact, because the show sought to stress that aspect of her character, the producers of “Love & Hip Hop: Atlanta” noticed her for being “ratchet.” She moved to Atlanta to be a part of the show, bought an all-African-American staff business in College Park on Old National Highway, and renamed it UltraViolet Nail Lounge. She initially debuted on the show’s fourth episode of the sixth season, which aired on March 27, 2017, and since then, she has gained notoriety for her distinctive style and sense of humor.
ATL’s Love & Hip Hop
Lovely Mimi initially hesitated to appear on the reality TV program “Love & Hip Hop: Atlanta,” while realizing the possibilities for creating her own brand and gaining exposure for her company through it. She hadn’t seen the show much on television, but she was fully aware of how incredibly dramatic it was from checking social media. She was married with two children and didn’t want to become involved in the chaos of reality television since it would have given a terrible impression of her. But in the end, she succumbed to the allure of fame, partly because it would help her land more gigs while party hosting, which she was already doing. She led two lives during the show: one as the untidy, obnoxious troublemaker and the other as the prosperous business owner, mother, and wife.
Lovely Personal Life On August 20, 1990, Myha Thi Luong gave birth to Mimi in Vietnam. Before her parents fled to America and settled in Silver Spring, Maryland in 1993, she spent her early years in a refugee camp in the Philippines. She didn’t know about the newest hip trends because her parents were poor and traditional when she was growing up, and other kids frequently made fun of her appearance. When she was a teenager, she started rebelling against her parents, started drinking, and frequently fled the house and got into problems. She spent the majority of her teenage years in group homes and juvenile correctional facilities rather than in school, and she ultimately dropped out.
She married Remy Skinner in 2010 after being in a long-term relationship with him. He also serves as her manager, and he frequently appears in the background of her videos. The couple’s two children are a son named Jayy and a daughter named Juice. Additionally, the parents of the children maintain the Instagram account ‘juicenjayy’. Jefe is the name of the family dog.
