It’s been a life-changing summer for Memphis, Tenn.’s own K. Michelle. The soul singer-turned-reality star burst onto the mainstream scene this June when the hit show “Love & Hip-Hop Atlantaâ€ premiered on VH1, and she hasn’t looked back since. Although the road to fame had been a bumpy one, with cruel rumors, lawsuits (former Jive Records executive Mickey “Memphitzâ€ Wright Jr. is suing her for defamation of character for remarks she made on the show), and arguments with cast members, K.
