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.
If there’s one thing we’ve learned in all our years watching (and reporting on) reality TV is that these people need a lot of therapy! Thank goodness some genius figured out how to kill two birds with one stone by inventing reality television therapy. That way these ‘stars’ can indulge in both their addiction to extending their 15 minutes, and potentially seeking some much-needed help. Do I have Dr. Drew to thank for this?
Kailyn Lowry officially called it quits with Javi Marroquin by allegedly cheating on him while he was deployed. After their breakup, the exes paid a visit to Marriage Boot Camp, where Javi hoped to save their marriage and work through infidelity, but Kail, well, she had different plans (like a baby in the belly!).
On the Friday premiere, Kail revealed that she did not consider it cheating when she started seeing ChrisLopez, because she and Javi were already separated. Kail also claimed Javi lied that he had filed for divorce. Javi denies this. “I did, in my heart, kind of hope this bootcamp would make her fall in love with me,” the Teen Mom 2 dad confessed. “So I still held on.”
It’s almost time for Althea Heart and Benzino to welcome “Baby Zino” to the world. And they’re preparing double!
First time mom Althea is due with a baby boy in the next few weeks and is getting everything squared away in advance – including clearing up any relationship drama with Benzino. Lately the once-tumultuous couple appears happy and focusing on parenthood. But, of course, they’re not completely abandoning reality TV!
Kendra, who never met a reality TV show she did not like, and Hank are the only marriage couple in the cast. “We needed the help and we really needed to focus on what our real issues were and what we need to do to solve them,” saidKendra, on why she and Hankjoined that cast in the midst of Hank’s cheating scandal. “We went in fighting each other, we went out fighting the world. That is where we remain right now.” See the season 3 premiere party pictures below!
