Last night on Marriage Boot Camp: Hip Hop Edition, the couples contemplate who to blame for their issues. This should be interesting because I can’t see Soulja Boy as the type to admit when he is wrong. If he isn’t reminding us he is rich, he is screaming at his girlfriend, Nia Riley. They say patience is a virtue, but you have to be almost a saint to deal with his nonsense. She definitely is not a saint, but I don’t think she is bad. During last night’s Marriage Boot Camp: Hip Hop Edition episode, we found out which couples were able to take the heat… literally.
Lil Mo and Karl Dargan start the day arguing about the comments she made about him not having anything without her. He feels like her thinking is extremely disrespectful. I think they both are right, it’s disrespectful to throw your wealth and fame in his face, but it’s probably true. He may be a boxer, but I had never heard about him until he appeared on TV shows with his wife.
Last night was the season premiere of Marriage Bootcamp: Hip Hop Edition. This is one of my favorite shows, especially the reality stars franchise. I can’t wait to see some of the most controversial reality stars in hip hop all in one house! This is going to be a recipe for disaster, but I am here for it!
First, Waka Flocka and his wife of four years, Tammy Rivera, arrive at the house. Shortly after, Lil Mo and her husband, Karl Dargan show up. Lil Mo has a lot of trust issues due to the infidelity and lies that have plagued their marriage. Next, Tiffany Campbell, Lil Fizz’s (AKA Drew) ex, arrives all alone. She claims they broke up two months ago and she feels he runs from their issues. After, Jessica Dime and Shawne Williams arrive at the house together next. Shawne feels like despite being engaged for two years, there are changes that need to be made before he is willing to walk down the aisle.
This season of Marriage Boot Camp: Hip Hop Edition is featuring some of the most controversial reality stars from the hip hop industry. If you have watched any of the seasons of Love and Hip Hop Atlanta and Hollywood franchises and R&B Divas you know that this has all of the components of reality television gold. There will definitely be drama, cheating accusations, and a ton of relationship issues.
Is it just me, or are any of you impressed that no one was seriously injured during last night’s final installment of the Love & Hip Hop Hollywood reunion? After that crazy brawl that occurred when Moniece jumped Brandi for questioning her parental skills, Nina has the women sitting calmly back on the sofa…although Moniece is twitching and Brandi claims to just be so passionate about motherhood (hers, she’s not judging anyone else…yeah, right!) that she’s shaking from wig to feather. Moniece’s mother interrupts to say that while she doesn’t condone her daughter’s actions, she has to protect her child. When questioned about whether she wants to clear up any issues, Moniece is radio silent.
Jason Lee and Hazel-E’s beef is highlighted, and Hazel won’t let Jason get a word in, but Ray-J pontificates that everyone needs redemption on the reunion. Jason blabbers off an insincere apology for tossing a drink in Hazel’s face, but Hazel reminds Nina that he was profiting off the incident with a t-shirt slogan the day the episode aired. Brandi inserts herself yet again because she’s such a champion for Jesus, and Ray wants to know what would Jesus do. Really Ray?
Is it possible that I’ve already forgotten half of the story lines from this season’s Love & Hip Hop Hollywood? Thanks goodness that last night’s first reunion installment brought me back up to speed! This time around, Nina Parker is tasked with keeping the cast in check, stirring the pot, rehashing the drama, and getting the heck out of the way when the inevitable messiness begins. She introduces the cast (there are some folks that maybe lasted an episode), and Hazel-E is in desperate need of a bra. Brandi missed the memo that this wasn’t a costume party, so she’s dressed as a fancy ostrich. Nina explains that Omarion and Apryl Jones were not able to join their co-stars because they have way more sense than this crew Omarion needs to focus on his music.
Princess and Ray-J’s turbulent romance is the first story line to be recapped. Ray admits he’s made a lot of mistakes, and Princess is happy to share that the charges against her have been dropped after that whole “Ray-J let me get arrested” fiasco. She reveals that the pair is engaged after Ray popped the question on the finale. Teairra Mari interjects that Ray has TMZ on speed dial, so it’s the perfect segue into Teairra’s two-faced ways with the couple. Teairra takes offense to Ray’s accusation that she was only interfering to get him back in her bed. She calls him a liar, but she fails to come up with another logical reason for inserting herself into their relationship.
Last night was the season finale of Love & Hip Hop Hollywood. What a ride! The episode begins as Moniece and Rich Dollaz are having a date night, and she applauds him for his civil meeting with Lil’ Fizz. She’s excited with the state of their relationship–Rich has done everything she’s asked of him regardless of how crazy he may consider her requests. Of course, with Moniece we know that that’s saying a lot! Next on her list? Engagement rings and wedding bands! Rich is on board as long as his ring is just as expensive as hers. Meanwhile, after coming out to his ex-girlfriend Amber to appease his current boyfriend Milan, Miles has decided to face his best guy friends with the news that he is gay. After the regular friendly ribbing and a quick game of pool, Miles realizes he should’ve never been nervous to tell his friends of his sexual orientation. They are extremely open to his admission, except for the fact that he didn’t feel comfortable telling them earlier.
Ray J is still whining about losing Princess, and he’s pulling out all the stops in hopes of making her come back to him. Cue a giant red bow and a brand-new house. He is all in as far as a relationship goes, but Ray’s not all in as far as Dabo’s (#allin #BYOG #GoTigers) standards go. Princess knows that Ray can be unpredictable, but she’s hoping he realizes why she needed to slow things down in the first place. She still loves Ray, but she’s not sure she can trust him due to his history of strippers and late nights. This is Ray’s final chance with Princess. Until the next chance, obviously. Princess cites that she is not ready to move into a new house unless Ray can promise her that it will be hers forever. She wants everything in her name. Ray isn’t about to convey his latest property over to Princess, but he lies and tells her that it’s in the works. Princess is excited about this next chapter, but she shouldn’t hold her breath for a quitclaim deed. Neither should Ray J, as we all know that this is just VH1 renting a house for filming purposes and for no other reason.
Something tells me that we aren’t going to see any of the runway shenanigans featured on last night’s Love & Hip Hop Hollywoodduring Fashion Week! This crew can’t have even the simplest event without major drama. Even back-to-school shopping is more than just backpacks and tiny jeans.
The episode begins with Lil’ Fizz and Moniece clothes shopping for Cameron before he starts kindergarten. Fizz is thrilled to finally be co-parenting with his ex, and he’s got a plan that good benefit both of them…he wants Moniece to be the featured girl in his upcoming video that Nikki declined. Moniece is happy to oblige but she’s confused by the emotions that are starting to resurface, especially given how much she loves Rich Dollaz. She presses Fizz about his dating life, and when Moniece learns he’s seeing Nikki, she realizes he’s just going for the low hanging fruit. Ray J is still moping over his break-up Princess, so he seeks advice from his friend Max. No matter how many hotties Ray may find in a club, no one compares to Princess. She’s changed him. While Ray used to cheat 90% of the time (that’s two girls a week, according to him), now he’s only cheating 5%…and most of that is just him watching porn. Wow, he’s such a catch!
Last night’s Love & Hip Hop Hollywood was all about man power. The guys on this franchise have no issues with getting along, but the women? That’s another story! Now that Willie is out of his contract, he’s back in the studio, joined by Rich and Ray-J. Rich describes Ray as a one-man creep show which is epic. Ray jokes that he is excited to have some single friends, but wait! Willie has a wife and he needs to be a stand-up husband. Plus, Rich is dating Moniece, and Ray is worried that if he helps Rich stray, he’ll get stabbed. Ray wishes he was back with Princess so he could have a crazy girlfriend too. He doesn’t want to be left out. Meanwhile, Moniece and Fizz are successfully co-parenting Cameron. Fizz knows that Rich has met Cameron once, and while he’s happy that Moniece is happy, he needs to get to know the man who will eventually be spending more time with his son. Moniece understands where Fizz is coming from, but she’s worried that Rich isn’t going to be on the same page.
Miles has had a traumatic couple of weeks, but now that he’s come out to Amber and his family, he feels that a weight has been lifted off his shoulders. He hopes now to be able to mend his relationship with Milan. Milan has been dodging his calls, but he’s finally agreed to hear Miles’ side of the story. After speaking to Amber, Milan knows it must have been difficult to share his news with her, but it doesn’t make Miles’ lies any easier to swallow. Miles admits that he’s come out to his family, and he’s ready for them to meet. This revelation makes Milan very happy, and he’s appreciative of Miles’ journey.
