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!
Poor Rich Dollaz. He doesn't have a story line on this seasons Love & Hip Hop that even comes close to comparing to that of his best friend Peter Gunz. He's spent most of the season making hilarious facial expressions as Peter's women fight around him and pining after Erica Mena.
Now Rich is speaking out about all of the drama and his record label that seems to be at the center of it all. Not surprisingly, he shares that he and Erica are still in love (so, I guess that lesbian thing didn't work out?), and he dishes on why former bestie Olivia Longott may have made a mistake by leaving the reality show.
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!
Last night's Love & Hip Hop episode was as ratchet as ever. I love that each show ends with a mini-brawl. It's by far the most high brow show I'm watching these days…um. Of course, last night made me fall in love with Peter Gunz all over again. Swoon. Damn. I couldn't even type that without gagging a bit.
Peter is trying to figure out which lady in his life deserves more attention. He decides that he needs to focus on Amina Buddafly…after all, she is the potential breadwinner. Peter admits to her that Yandy Smith won't let Rich Dollaz sign her to their label because of her and Petey's messy situation. While she understands, she isn't happy about it. She is his wife now, not his side chick! Keep telling yourself that, hon. She's ready to live as husband and wife now that Tara Wallace knows the truth, but Peter is still spending the night as his kids' house and "working late." Here's a tip, sweetheart. He's not spending the night with his kids, but rather with their mother who may be as stupid as you are. Oh, and that working late thing? Remember when he used to "work late" with you? He's doing that with someone else. However, it's super sweet that Amina believes Peter when he tells her they can't wear wedding rings until he can afford a ring worthy for her. That will happen in about three weeks to never!
It was another drama fueled evening on last night's Love & Hip Hop. The men showed what true class acts they are with Saigon being physically restrained from going after his child's mother and Peter Gunz vowing to do whatever it takes to make sure he keeps both his wife and his girlfriend in his back pocket. At least Rich Dollaz remains his normal doormat self. Thank goodness for small favors!
To get out her aggression, Tara Wallace turns to boxing with Yandy Smith at her cousin's gym. Let's hope he doesn't take any Instagrams of the ladies like last season! Tara shares her own Instagram gold mine where she found Amina Buddafly's videos of Peter. Three glasses of wine later and she's cutting up all of his belongings. Three glasses? I would have only needed three sips to wreak havoc on Peter's gross behind. Tara asks Yandy about the management situation with Amina, and she seems to understand that it's just business. If Yandy wants to sign Amina, Tara knows that it is what it is. However, Yandy doesn't want the mess that signing Amina brings, and she assures her friend that Amina will not be a part of her label.
Saigon wants to get to know Erica Jean better since, oh, you know, they have a CHILD together. He takes her on a painting date to learn more about his baby mama on a deeper level. They chat about how great being parents is, and I have to applaud them for remembering their lines because this is the most fake conversation ever. Paging Jane Seymour–these two are poised to be the next spokespeople for Kaye's Open Hearts Collection. Their kiss seems about as forced as their small talk.
It's a sad day for Yandy Smith, as it seems that fiance Mendeecees Harris isn't going to be coming home any time soon. While he managed to be cleared of the charges regarding sexual acts with a minor, he is sitting in jail awaiting trial for a drug trafficking conspiracy.
On this season's Love & Hip Hop, when Peter Gunz isn't playing every lady in life, Yandy is awaiting news of Mendeecees sentencing. I do hope for the sake of his kids that what I'm writing about is still just speculation, but it appears that Mendeecees' fate has been sealed. It's not good.
