Well, well, well, it looks like some people are getting a bigger story line on Love & Hip Hop. Peter Gunz has decided to step aside for an episode and let other people take the lead.
Tara Wallace is all about doing her (and probably Peter when he calls) these days to get over her break-up. She's ambushed by K. Michelle and Yandy Smith. Her friends want to give her a sexed up makeover, and she's completely onboard with the transformation, especially since she has a date with the actor she met at Yandy's casting call. It's settled, dirty Heidi Klum it is! The blonde wig is working for her (kind of?), but poor girl can't twerk to save her life.
Rich Dollaz is tired of the constant ups and downs with Erica Mena. He decides to seek the advice of his mom since she's been along for the ride since he started hooking up/working with Erica. Rich's mom urges him to stay focus and keep things professional. He's preparing to go to a modeling show, and he feels guilty because he's gotten all his contacts from Erica. While Rich's mother thinks Erica is sweet and beautiful, but she isn't completely irresistible. Rich needs to keep it in his pants, but it's hard for this self-described "creep."
The longer this season of Love & Hip Hop goes on, the more I like it. Seriously. There is something inherently amusing every last one of these people, and last night's episode was no exception. Let's get started, shall we?
Amina Buddafly just can't wrap her head around the fact that Peter Gunz would cheat her. It's so shocking to think that the man who cheated with you and married you on the sly and still spends the night with his ex is actually having his cake and eating it too. I'm totally floored. She's meeting with a friend to rehash the recent events, and said friend is horrified to learn that Amina has thrown her wedding ring in the trash. Amina is devastated, as she's never been happier or felt more connected to anyone until Peter. However, she's not about to let keep Peter cheating on her for years and years…she'll just let that happen to Tara Wallace. Her friend thinks Amina looks weak and foolish even entertaining the idea of forgiving Peter.
Two weeks off is a long time to be away from the crazy, delusional, bed-hopping cast of Love & Hip Hop, so I won't waste any time with an introduction. I know you've missed them as much as I have!
Tajiry Jose is so, so busy with her acting and modeling that's it's so nice to get a night off to enjoy New York Fashion Week. As she walks the red carpet, she's photo bombed by ex Joe Budden. At first she pretends to be disgusted, but she's happy to play up to the cameras. Joe tries to apologize for letting another woman lay in their bed. As she attempts to watch the show, Joe keeps trying to cop a feel. They leave in the rain, and Tajiry steals his sweater to shield her hair leaving a wet Professor standing on the sidewalk.
Amina Buddafly is catching up with sister Sophie who is visiting from Germany. She shares her marital woes, and Sophie recommends letting things remain status quo with Peter Gunz and Tara Wallace if she loves him so much. She certainly shouldn't patiently wait around for him to grow up because that is never going to happen!
Well, this is certainly a Festivus for the rest of us! Perhaps some people may even call it a Christmas miracle. I don't know who those people are, but if you encounter one of them, I would avoid them at all costs.
Apparently Amina Buddafly, one-third of the most awkward and dramatic love triangle in the history of Love & Hip Hop, is preggers. This should make for good television, right?
I honestly find the crew from this season's Love & Hip Hop more and more amusing as the season continues. It's not because the show is getting more ridiculous (although it is), but it's because the cast is speaking out about said ridiculousness. The more they try to explain it, the more hilarious the situation becomes.
First, Peter Gunz announced that he didn't like the way he came across as he played Tara Wallace and Amina Buddafly against one another. He's tired of living a double life, y'all! Next, Tara felt the need to "clarify" her reasons for sleeping with Peter after she found out he'd married Amina behind her back, thus causing her to stock up on Plan B. Now, Amina is adding her two cents, and it just keeps getting better! Did you know she'd never seen the show before agreeing to be on it?
Spin that Statement 101 must be a required course at the Community College of Ratchet Reality because the folks on Love & Hip Hop are making the grade! Viewers seem to be repulsed by Peter Gunz for hopping between two women, but they are also a tad weirded out that the women seem to put up with his horrifically disrespectful behavior! Tara Wallace kicked Peter out of their shared apartment when she learned that he'd married (yes, married!) Amina Buddafly behind her back, yet she still fell into bed with Peter.
When Amina learned of her alleged husband's infidelity (how could she even be remotely surprised?), she doubted that he would cheat. Upon hearing this news, Tara seemed almost proud that she'd gotten back at the woman who ruined her family by announcing that not only was she still sleeping with Peter, but she'd taken Plan B a few times in as many months. You know, to each their own, but it gives me the heebie jeebies to think of having unprotected sex with someone you know full well is doing the same with other partners.
I guess we can agree to disagree because Tara doesn't see that as the case. In a recent interview, Tara defends her actions while admitting that she's no longer dumb enough to keep sleeping with Peter. Well, at least there's that!
So last night's Love & Hip Hop was one giant mess, was it not? Peter Gunz keeps getting worse and worse, and the women in his life have got to be the best actresses on the planet because there is no way that they are that stupid. Throw in K. Michelle's attitude, and my head is reeling. You know it's bad when Rich Dollaz and Erica Mena are the sanest folks on the episode!
Saigon invites Erica Jean to the studio to apologize for screaming at her, throwing her pocketbook, lunging at her, calling her every name under the book, and accusing her of stunting their son's development. No biggie. He explains that his father was always so ugly to his mother and it made him hate his dad. He doesn't want his son to see him treating Erica in the same manner. Erica is thrilled that Saigon has seen the light, and he actually rationally and calmly inquires as to whether she'd be alright if they both took their son to see a speech therapist. He knows his son is fine (he's clearly been doing some more googling!), but it can't hurt to see a specialist. Just think of the drama they could have avoided had he done it that way the first time!
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!
