What do you do when you don't get a lot of screen time on the most ratchet of reality shows? Well, you start giving interviews, of course! At least, that's what Rashidah Ali is doing!
The Love & Hip Hop star wasn't featured often this season unless she was arguing with her friend Tahiry Jose. The pals had quite a blow-up over Tahiry's "modeling" career and her crappy attitude as one of Rashidah's bridesmaids. Doesn't she want to be featured in Shaunie O'Neal's special on Rashidah's wedding?

Talking to Wet Paint about the pair's history, Rashidah shares, “During the course of our 8-year friendship, we always discussed life things that she’s doing things that I’m doing — mostly things that she’s doing because our friendship was one-sided. It was kind of situation where I was always there for her and I was always a support system for her, but the tables would never turn.”
Defending her comments about Tahiry's booty pics, Rashidah tells the site, “My point was you’re dating guys that are great guys, cool guys, but they’re not taking you seriously by posting pictures of your body on Twitter and not showing you a certain level of respect. And I believe it’s because you’re not showing yourself a certain level of respect. I would say to her as a friend for years like ‘OK, well yeah you did the modeling thing… what do you want to do next? Do you want to start a business? It’s time to evolve from the urban modeling world.’”
Rashidah explains, “It’s kind of like real estate: it’s extremely oversaturated and you’re not going to be able to get the return on it that you might have been able to get at one point. You’re going to get back whatever you’re putting out. So if you’re putting out the wrong things, and if you’re not getting the results that you want from putting those things out, then try something different.”
Even after all the chaos which has occurred in their friendship Rashidah claims she has “absolutely no hard feelings toward [Tahiry] whatsoever at all," adding, “She can model until she’s 50 if she wants to. It’s not my place. I’m not her guardian.”
It should be interesting to see these two face off on the second half of the reunion tonight!
