Pics or it didn’t happen- right? Or at least it seems like the case for most reality TV stars which does make sense since they do live out some of their biggest moments in front of a reality TV crew. So it’s not surprising that they shared some great photos for this week’s Instagram Roundup. This is especially true during the holiday season. It seems like almost everyone is getting into the holiday spirit these days.
It is the most wonderful time of the year! Not only are there great reality TV shows on right now, but also the winter holidays are coming up! This means that your favorite reality stars are getting festive, picking out and decorating their Christmas trees and attending big parties. They’ve shared some great photos for this week’s Instagram Roundup for their fans and followers to enjoy.
It’s here, ya’ll! Love & Hip Hop New York is bringing back the glam, the beats, and the drama for season eight. There are some new players on the scene destined to stir it up, and some familiar faces guaranteed to hold it down.
We begin with the first lady of this crew, Remy Ma, who is looking fab in a private helicopter as she glides, unbothered, above her city. Since her comeback, the rap mogul is loving her regained spotlight – but fame comes with a price. Getting nominated for Best Female Hip Hop Artist by BET this year puts her in the crosshairs of her competitors, but Remy just wants to see the women of hip hop come together. No need for more messiness.
At Lovage Rooftop in Midtown, the party Remy has organized to bring women together is in full swing. She arrives in all her gilded glory to thank everyone for coming, and to encourage networking. Her husband and producer, Papoose, loves seeing Remy use her swag to empower others in the industry. Now, they just have to take her advice.
Remy sits down with blue-haired Bianca Bonnie (formerly known as Young B), and Juliet “Juju” C to chat, and is disturbed to hear that Bianca has gotten herself into some hot water over a physical altercation with Brittany “Bri” Taylor, who has allegedly been coming at her for years. Instead of seeing how devastating this behavior could be to her career, Bianca justifies the incident. Knowing where this can lead (clink clink), Remy advises the young upstart to cool it with the club tussling. “I don’t want you to be like me,” she warns. Bianca just laughs and says she’ll work on it.
Toya Wright is opening a new chapter. Literally. She’s finally sharing her life story through a new book In My Own Words. The memoir chronicles her life of equal parts fortune and misfortune while surviving fame, love, and tremendous loss.
In My Own Words is Toya’s third book, but her most personal. “I get very raw and you get to see TOYA, not Toya Wright. It’s the stripped down, naked truth of my life and my REAL reality – not what you see on television.”
Fast forward a few months to this past April, and Mendeecees entered a guilty plea to charges that could land him in prison for close to a decade. Just last month, a US District judge handed down the maximum sentence to the reality star, and Mendeecees’ wife Yandy was chastised for throwing him a lavish going away (to the clink) party (twas a tad gauche). Accepting culpability for his actions, Mendeecees has been very vocal about changing the cycle of children who grew up as he did. While I clearly don’t condone any of Mendeecees’ horrific dealings, I did get the vibe (on the show) that he is a truly genuine person who wants the best for his children…although now he won’t be around to deliver.
