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."

With the popularity of Love & Hip Hop it only makes sense that a more and more notorious cast joins the ranks!
First came the rumors that they are expanding the franchise, and now a new rumor says Chris Brown's ex Karrueche Tran along with some other famous hangerons celebs will be joining the show! Anemail leaked by Sandra Rose supposedly revealed Mona Scott-Young's casting plans!
The email claimed to have booked several famous faces for a west coast franchise! Mona is reportedly only allowed to choose one new location per VH-1 and the shortlist is Houston, LA, or New Orleans.
IsLove & Hip Hop Atlanta'sK. Michelle trading tax liens for bottles..and not the kind her pal–and my eye candy–Ryan Lochte likes to pop?!? Word on the street (and by street, I mean the gossip from a source that "sometimes" tends to "exaggerate") is that the singer and reality star is preggo.
This comes on the news of K. Michelleowing a hefty chunk of change to Uncle Sam to the tune of over $52,000.00. I hope she knows that babies are expensive!
Our favorite reality TV stars cannot get enough of the spotlight during their regularly scheduled time slots, so they take to Twitter to share even more of their daily lives with us. And we love them for it! Here's a roundup of some of our favorite photos from the Twitterverse this week! Enjoy!
It's so haa-arrr-arrd to say good-bye to Stevie Jaaaaaaayyyyeeeeeee! Last night's final installment of the Love & Hip Hop Atlanta reunion was bittersweet. On one hand, it's been an emotional roller coaster of a season, and this girl is drained, but on the other, speaking like Lil' Scrappy in the off-season tends to draw some strange looks in my place of biz-nigh-ee.
We'll jump right back into where Mona Scott Young left us…with Rasheeda and Kirk Frost's dysfunctional marriage. The audience is stunned to re-watch Kirk suggest his wife get an abortion, and he says–with a straight face, no less!–that pulling out was a legitimate form of birth control. What, is he sixteen? Mona scolds Kirk when he laughs over the footage of his affair, and he again relays to Mona that he believes Rasheeda gave him a free pass. Mimi Faust is all "oh no he didn't" from the sofas, and Drew knows better than do anything but nod in agreement to Mimi's outcry since he's sitting between her and Traci Reece.
Y'all, I know you were as excited as I was to see the insanity unfold on last night's Love & Hip Hop Reunion. Mona Scott-Young is moving up in the hosting world and now has her own reunion band. Touting the season as a Hip HOpera (why didn't I think of that??), she breaks down the drama from the past season before introducing the cast. It's like a technicolor explosion. Between K. Michelle's hair, Ariane's blue lipstick (yes, blue), Erica Dixon's eye make-up, and Mimi Faust's orange dress, I feel like I just woke up in Oz. Kirk Frost gets booed, which he laughs off, because, hey, even he knows what a d-bag he is! He is dressed like an extra on Miami Vice, by the way.
Mona is no idiot, so she immediately pits Joseline Hernandez against Mimi, and the requisite derogatory name-calling, cussing, and hopping off the sofa ensues. Stevie J. stands up proudly, basking in the two women fighting over him. Mimi assures him that he's sorely mistaken, right before dodging Joseline's stiletto. We're off to a running start, I'd say. We are treated to a highlight reel of all the frenemy feuds. Ariane is the only sane one of the group.
After bringing up the status of Mimi and K. Michelle's friendship, Mimi rolls her eyes and tells Mona to ask K. K. then compliments Mimi on her orange dress (it is pretty), and you could cut the tension with a knife. Apparently Ariane's bridge building lessons weren't well received. Speaking of failed peacemakers, Traci tries to share her intentions to get Erica and Shay speak about their issues. Erica wonders if this is season two, not a rerun of season one, while Shay reminds Erica that she still isn't married to Lil' Scrappy.
