Love and Hip Hop

hip hop peter gunz

Well, we're back for another classy installment of Love & Hip Hop which begins with Amina Buddafly bragging to Rich Dollaz about her marriage to Peter Gunz. She is a horrible actress as she tries to act like she's sick of being considered his side-chick. Peter can't believe she's spilling their secret. After all, he told her that no one could ever know about their little wedding. Mona, I'm insulted. This is what passes for "reality" these days? This is about as real as my relationship with Ryan Gosling.

K. Michelle and her friend Paris are meeting Yandy Smith for gossip and cocktails. They discuss the dating scene in New York City, and K. Michelle reveals that she won't date another man with a hairless cat. Before I can get totally grossed out by K's weird sexual references, she explains that she once dated a guy who actually had a Grandma Whiskers. Yandy decides to plan a ladies' night out to welcome her friend to the Big Apple.

We're introduced to Nya who is a stripper turned rapper (sound familiar?), so of course Rich feels inclined to stop by the studio to check out her sound. Nya isn't keen on having a manager who is known for sleeping with his artists. She's already got enough to overcome with the whole stripper gig. Rich is insulted. Google him. He makes dreams come true. This is either the worst first meeting between "business people" or a prelude to a sexually charged manager-artist relationship. I've learned only one thing from this flipping franchise, and that is the studio time costs money. This entire exchange just seems like a big ol' waste of cash to me.

It's time to breakdown who's watching what on Sunday and Monday nights.

On Sunday, roughly 2.3 million fans watched the frantic events that led up to North West's early delivery on Keeping Up with the Kardashians. Also, the finale of I Dream of NeNe aired, and the wedding special ended on a strong note with 2.280 million viewers. 

On Monday, season four of Love & Hip Hop premiered to an impressive 2.997 million viewers, which is its fourth highest number ever. Less impressive – and kind of embarrassing – only 764,000 fans witnessed Joanna Krupa's meltdown on Real Housewives of Miami.

Holding steady is Teen Mom 3 with roughly 1.2 million viewers this week.

Don't lie. You've missed the crew from Love & Hip Hop. Yeah, I know. I couldn't type that with a straight face any more than you could read it with one. With the Basketball Wives reunion kaput, VH1 treated us to the season premiere of a more yawn-inducing version of the feisty L&HH: ATL. While I'll try to reserve my judgment, I don't think that K. Michelle can save this sinking ship any more than the newbies. It's not that I don't like Yandy Smith and Mendeecees Harris, but they are almost too likeable. I didn't believe Rich Dollaz and Erica Mena's relationship was anything more than camera candy, so I never invested much thought in them, and don't even get me started on the dysfunction that is Tahiry Jose and Joe Budden. So, about that reservation of judgment promise…I'm not doing so well, eh? 

With the Medicine Man still incarcerated, Yandy has continued to take Little Mendeecees during his dad's custodial times. Both she and Mendecees have decided to tell the boy that his father is serving time…in the army.  I don't even have the chance to type how adorable this child is before Mona Scott Young goes and throws a curveball…she is totally exploiting Little Mendecees by having him share a secret with his soon-to-be stepmom. He reveals that he has known his dad was in jail for months.

See guys, dreams really do come true…although it often takes time to confirm them. Love & Hip Hop creator Mona Scott Young has been hoping to expand her franchise, although I think she'll be hard pressed to find one that can compare to L&HH: Atlanta! With rumors swirling over the Internet about potential cities and hangers on cast members, Mona is finally talking about what we've all been talking about for the last few months.  Thanks for bringing us up to speed there, Mona! 

So far, Chris Brown's ex Karrueche Tran and Single Ladies' LeToya Luckett have debunked the gossip that they will be signing on with the VH1 reality show. Mona told Necole Bitchie, "Of course New York starts up again October 28, so I am excited about that, and I am casting in a few other cities. There's been a lot of chit chat on the interweb about that. I'm looking at L.A., I'm looking at Houston, looking at New Orleans. Yeah, we're going to find another city to spread our wings into."

Good-bye Raqi Thunda!  Farewell Ronald McDonald Rasheedah Ali! Catch you later Jen the Pen and Consequence! Ciao Olivia Longett!  Seriously, is anyone returning to VH1's Love & Hip Hop this season?

With the addition of K. Michelle, Yandy Smith, Tahiry Jose, and Erica Mena (of course…drama always gets invited back!), there are obviously some new ladies that will be added to the mix. I guess the return of Tahiry means that Professor Budden will make an appearance as well.  Oh joy.

Don't lie. Y'all have missed Somaya Reece since she departed from Love & Hip Hop. I know I have, and I certainly didn't have to refresh my memory as to what she looks like or the drama she caused during her tenure on VH1. Clearly it wasn't much or she'd likely still be on it!

I have to commend her from taking a break from scripted cat fights, girl drama, and drink tossing that has become synonymous with all VH1 reality shows.  But it begs the question…what is Somaya doing now?

The singer and former reality star recently checked in with the folks of The Jasmine Brand.  While Somaya is no longer gracing the small screen on L&HH, she's mastered the art of reality television stardom: do everything! Whether it's schlep a cocktail with your name on it or taking credit for some ghostwriter penning your life story, do it! I kid.  Kind of.

I think we can all agree that the casting rumors leading up to new shows is almost as exciting as the shows themselves. Sometimes, if the show ends up being a dud, those rumors are the highlight!

Let's take the Love & Hip Hop franchise, shall we?  L&HH ATL is an off-the-charts hit for VH1 while L&HH is, well, crickets and tumbleweeds.  Here's hoping K. Michelle can turn it around…

But what about the Love & Hip Hop installments that have yet to film?

So, K. Michelle has been all over the place as of late, no?  The Love & Hip Hop Atlanta star has been promoting her music, finding new love with a younger man, and crossing over to the land of VH1's original Love & Hip Hop.  

It's even been rumored recently that K. Michelle and NBA boyfriend Lance Stephenson were expecting a little bundle of joy.  While K. Michelle hasn't spoken out against that gossip, she did share some a very vague, yet very telling, status with her Twitter followers regarding her relationship.
