Who knew that a reality star’s sex tape could turn into such a viral hit? After Love & Hip Hop Atlanta star Mimi Faust’s adult home video hit the interwebs earlier this week, it spread like wildfire, with fans noting that one prop in particular stood out: that super-strong shower rod propping her up. From there, a meme was born — and now Real Housewives of Atlanta’s Kandi Burruss has gotten on the #MimiShowerRod trend.

Kandi recently took to Instagram to share a pic of a broken shower rod, writing, “This is what happens when you don't have a @mimifaust pole.... I can't pull up on this!”

So how did her shower rod meet its maker? Well, the newlywed kindly included two videos afterward that explained that she was simply trying to recreate her fellow Atlantan reality star’s signature sex move!

“I was trying to figure out how @Mimifaust was able to pull up on that shower rod.... I think I weigh too much for this! #HumpDayWeds #ItsTimeForKKNtocomeback,” Kandi captioned the first vid.

But she wasn’t done trying just yet, and she shared another video with the caption, “#part2 I need a #MiMiShowerRod...Where do they sell those? #ThisIsWhatHappensWhenToddGoesOutOfTown #ImPerfectingMyTricksForWhenToddGetsBack Lol!”

At the end of the clip she says, “Mimi, I dig your shower rod.” Ha! I don’t know, Kandi, it’s been fun seeing what you got up to while your new hubby Todd Tucker is out of town. We’re seeing a playful prankster side to the R&B diva, and we don’t hate it!
