You know what? Every week I snark on the women of Love & Hip Hop for being huge dolts and letting the idiot men in their lives make them look like fools on national television. I'm not going to stop now. Wake up, Tara Wallace! See the light, Amina Buddafly! All this drama over Peter Gunz? I'll never understand it, and this is coming from a girl who has had her fair share of winners in the dating lottery and made several of the mistakes these ladies continue to make. No, I've never secretly married another woman's boyfriend and tattooed his name on my rib cage (yet), but I have certainly believed a liar or three.
Speaking of another L&HH damsel who keeps finding herself in the same predicament is Tahiry Jose. The poor girl tries to stand up to Joe Budden, but the nutty professor is always able to lure her back and somehow make her feel guilty for his bad behavior. It's diabolical…he should be a politician!
Last night's Love & Hip Hop episode was as ratchet as ever. I love that each show ends with a mini-brawl. It's by far the most high brow show I'm watching these days…um. Of course, last night made me fall in love with Peter Gunz all over again. Swoon. Damn. I couldn't even type that without gagging a bit.
Peter is trying to figure out which lady in his life deserves more attention. He decides that he needs to focus on Amina Buddafly…after all, she is the potential breadwinner. Peter admits to her that Yandy Smith won't let Rich Dollaz sign her to their label because of her and Petey's messy situation. While she understands, she isn't happy about it. She is his wife now, not his side chick! Keep telling yourself that, hon. She's ready to live as husband and wife now that Tara Wallace knows the truth, but Peter is still spending the night as his kids' house and "working late." Here's a tip, sweetheart. He's not spending the night with his kids, but rather with their mother who may be as stupid as you are. Oh, and that working late thing? Remember when he used to "work late" with you? He's doing that with someone else. However, it's super sweet that Amina believes Peter when he tells her they can't wear wedding rings until he can afford a ring worthy for her. That will happen in about three weeks to never!
It was another drama fueled evening on last night's Love & Hip Hop. The men showed what true class acts they are with Saigon being physically restrained from going after his child's mother and Peter Gunz vowing to do whatever it takes to make sure he keeps both his wife and his girlfriend in his back pocket. At least Rich Dollaz remains his normal doormat self. Thank goodness for small favors!
To get out her aggression, Tara Wallace turns to boxing with Yandy Smith at her cousin's gym. Let's hope he doesn't take any Instagrams of the ladies like last season! Tara shares her own Instagram gold mine where she found Amina Buddafly's videos of Peter. Three glasses of wine later and she's cutting up all of his belongings. Three glasses? I would have only needed three sips to wreak havoc on Peter's gross behind. Tara asks Yandy about the management situation with Amina, and she seems to understand that it's just business. If Yandy wants to sign Amina, Tara knows that it is what it is. However, Yandy doesn't want the mess that signing Amina brings, and she assures her friend that Amina will not be a part of her label.
Saigon wants to get to know Erica Jean better since, oh, you know, they have a CHILD together. He takes her on a painting date to learn more about his baby mama on a deeper level. They chat about how great being parents is, and I have to applaud them for remembering their lines because this is the most fake conversation ever. Paging Jane Seymour–these two are poised to be the next spokespeople for Kaye's Open Hearts Collection. Their kiss seems about as forced as their small talk.
Oh Mona Scott Young. I love you, but don't treat me like I'm an idiot. Don't get me wrong, I often am an idiot, but I certainly understand what you're trying to do with the Love & Hip Hop franchise…and it's a ratchet equals rating scenario. Don't act like it's anything deeper!
In a recent interview with V103, Mona shares the phenomenon of the series, explaining, “You know, it’s so funny, people have this love/hate, LOVE/HATE relationship with Love & Hip Hop. They love the show, they love the drama; but then they’re mad at the drama and they don’t want to see the fighting. But then they want to see the fighting. It’s like a roller-coaster ride!” I hate to admit it, but she speaks the truth, doesn't she? Gah, Mona! You're killing me!

It's a sad day for Yandy Smith, as it seems that fiance Mendeecees Harris isn't going to be coming home any time soon. While he managed to be cleared of the charges regarding sexual acts with a minor, he is sitting in jail awaiting trial for a drug trafficking conspiracy.
On this season's Love & Hip Hop, when Peter Gunz isn't playing every lady in life, Yandy is awaiting news of Mendeecees sentencing. I do hope for the sake of his kids that what I'm writing about is still just speculation, but it appears that Mendeecees' fate has been sealed. It's not good.
Welp, that break-up didn't last long. Just kidding, we all know that Love & Hip Hop is totally scripted, so Tahiry Jose taking Joe Budden to task over allowing a "female" friend wipe her face all over Tahiry's bedroom was just drama courtesy of Mona. I'm sure in "real life" the pair have a normal, healthy, stable relationship. No, I couldn't get through typing that without laughing…
The couple recently appeared on VH1's Big Morning Buzz Live with Carrie Keagan where they discussed current projects, the status of their relationship, and–what else?–selfies. Just so you're informed, Tahiry loves selfies of herself but thinks that guy selfies are "corny." Professor Budden opines, “Men can’t take selfies, ‘cause we’re men.” Brilliance in its truest form.
As for how they are keeping busy now that filming has wrapped, Joe shares that he's just finished his third studio album while Tahiry is the new owner of a club called Suite 135 in Harlem. Does this mean she can quit waiting tables? Make sure to check out the buzz and learn Joe's Rules for Selfies! #themoreyouknow
