Admittedly, I haven't been keeping up with the folks of the original Love & Hip Hop like I should, so I guess I shouldn't be too surprised to learn that Amina Buddafly is still with Peter Gunz even after the most ratchet and humiliating reunion in the history of VH1. Used pregnancy test, anyone?
You also wouldn't know the couple is still together by Peter's Instagram account as he never posts pictures of his expectant bride. However, Amina posts pictures of the two enough for the both of them (like the one above)…it seems like some things never change!
I know Yandy Smith is a happy camper this week…even if she's slightly poorer because of it. The Love & Hip Hop star's fiance is out of jail, thanks in part to her $200,000 bail pledge. That's right, y'all! Medicine Mendeecees Harris is a free man. Well, kind of…and VH1 was there to capture the moment. Of course they were!
On Monday, Yandy walked into federal court in Rochester, New York and put up $200,000 of Mendeecees' $600,000 bond package. Later that day, Mendeecees was released from Yates County Jail where he's been, um, residing, for over a year. Does this mean Yandy will have more of a story line next season? I kid, I kid. I know she's happy to have him back home with his kids.
Um, when you start to mess with Benzino, you're messing with this girl. It's no secret that the neckless wonder is my favorite person from the entire Love & Hip Hop franchise. He's equal parts harmless and unintentionally hilarious. So to the idiot who shot him while he was en route to his mother's funeral (yes, you read all of that correctly), shame on you. What is this world coming to?
Obviously, 'Zino is thankfully doing alright after the ordeal, and I know this courtesy of Stevie J.'s Instagram. Could this story get any more twisted? The Love & Hip Hop: Atlanta star is recuperating after being rushed to the hospital following a shooting which occurred during his mother's funeral procession. I don't even know what to make of this situation.
Mark my words…one day Mona Scott-Young is going to take over the world. How else can it be explained that the Love & Hip Hop franchise remains so popular? The messier it gets, the more people want to watch–myself included! The woman is an evil genius, I tell you!
As fans of the VH1 train wrecks (yes, plural) are well aware, the casts of both New York and Atlanta are virtual revolving doors of ratchetness. I don't know why some hip hop artists would choose to become famous for their drama as opposed to their talent, but it seems like a pretty regular occurrence with these folks!
So Mona Scott-Young may be getting sued? Who knew that Love & Hip Hop would ever be the subject of a law suit that wasn't based on someone getting injured in a show-related brawl? Is the idea for that franchise so popular that multiple people thought of the concept at the same time? If that is the case, should we be worried about our culture? Probably, but Mona wins with the discovery of Stevie J. for sure!
MTV and VH1 are apparently being sued for infringement due to Mona's brainchild. However, as the show's creator, Mona has yet to see any formal paperwork. In fact, like us, she's only read about it in the blogs! It seems that someone is claiming that Mona stole their idea for a hip hop reality show. Can't we all just get along? There is plenty of room in the reality realm for multiple trashy shows, right?
So last night was the Love & Hip Hop reunion part duh deux. Let's hope that Mo'Nique can salvage what was a boring first half. Right off the bat, Mo'Nique warns everyone to keep their seats. She resumes her conversation with Peter Gunz, Tara Wallace, and Amina Buddafly. Mo'Nique questions whether Amina is worried she'll be Tara in ten years. Amina reveals that after a year of marriage, Amina already feels like Tara as Peter is up to his old tricks. We are treated to a highlight reel of the love triangle. I hope that Tara is as grossed out by her language regarding sexing up Peter as I am. Amina reveals that she will never allow herself to become Tara, Peter made her look like a fool, and Amina isn't going to put up with his shenanigans. The women are actually making some mature points, which is a plus. Erica Mena gives Amina a round of applause.
Peter admits that if he'd known Tara had such strong feelings for him, he probably wouldn't have married Amina. He announces that he's too old to be acting like this, and he believes that both women deserve better. Peter needs to work on becoming a better person. Amina interrupts to remind the audience that she loves pulling surprises out of her bra (Mrs. Pansky's drivers' license anyone?) before throwing a positive pregnancy test at Peter. Yup, Urine. She says that unlike Tara, she didn't take the Plan B. Erica is beside herself. "Shiz just got real, y'all!" she yells as Peter storms off the stage. Erica goes to comfort Amina, while Tahiry Jose follows Peter, urging him to publicly apologize to Tara for humiliating her on national television.
