So, the artist formerly known as Bow Wow is making an honest woman out of Erica Mena. Who would have guessed? I had no idea that 1) that Bow Wow was trying to drop his famous moniker in favor of his real name (good luck with that, Shad); or 2) that he was dating Love & Hip Hop’s original hot mess. #loosecannonbymona
Apparently, I wasn’t the only one. Shad’s announcement that the pair is now betrothed set the Internet abuzz with people confused about the undercover couple and just who Shad Moss is (I kid, I kid). Is VH1 thinking of venturing into the realm of wedding specials?
The star, who is no stranger to a tumultuous love life and has been rumored to be linked to Bow Wow recently, reveals that this season viewers will see her focus on both love and business! Erica reveals that she is “transitioning from old ways to new ways.”
“I’m coming into my own,” Erica explains. “I think people will be able to accept it more because they’ve seen my growth from the beginning to now, and they’ve kinda got the point that I don’t hesitate on who I love, whether it’s a woman or a man. I love them, I’m in love with them, and that’s just what it is.”
Y’all know I’m not going to know what to do with myself on Monday nights when this season of Love & Hip Hop: Atlanta comes to an end. Sure, VH1 will have something just as dramatic, and catty, and horrific to slide right into its time slot, as if we won’t be mourning the loss of the Puerto Rican Princess and Benzino’s neck. I’m not buying what you’re selling, VH1.
Mona Scott Young tries to sell us on other franchises of the show, but nothing and no one can measure up to the scripted insanity that is Atlanta. New York City? Please! I’m yawning just thinking about it! And what about Love & Hip Hop: L.A.? Is that even still happening?
The Peter Gunz repopulation project continues! Peter and wife Amina Buddafly gave birth to their first daughter together last week on Tuesday, July 29th.
Amina announced the good news by thanking fans for the support, “Thank you guys for all the well wishes and nice comments and messages!!! haven’t gotten thru all yet but I’m so happy we’ve made a beautiful gorgeous precious angel who I can’t take my eyes off of…just enjoying some private time for now but you know we will share more soon.”
Well, if nothing else, this story proves that you don't have to have a sex tape (that we know of…yet) to get your name out there this week if you're a Love & Hip Hop star. That's good news (for us, at least!), right?
Lil' Scrappy and his mother are firing back at accusations alleged by his ex-girlfriend Diamond who recently claimed that Scraps physically abused her and Dee ruined her credit. As we all know, Momma Dee doesn't take kindly to anyone talking trash about her prince!
Is Vivid getting a two-for-one deal on sex tapes with the ladies from the Love & Hip Hop franchise? First, Atlanta'sMimi Faust has released a video which is breaking Kim Kardashian'sporn records, and now Erica Mena is throwing her hat (thong?) into the ring with some sexy times of her own!
And when I say "her own" I mean her own, as there is apparently only one star of Erica's tape. While she's been on-and-off with manager Rich Dollaz while in a lesbian relationship which was featured on last season, it's seems that Erica's favorite person in the bedroom is, well, Erica.
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.
