True Love Is Verifying Your Boo On Twitter, And Other Random Things We Learned From The “Love And Hip Hop” Reunion Part II
And it’s finally over! The season of Love and Hip Hop in New York ended yesterday after airing their final reunion episode, and boy did the absolute most happen. Joe Budden got punched in the back of the head by Consequence, Erica admitted to having sexual relations with Tiffany, Yandy opened up about the currently incarcerated Mendeecees, and basically, the ratch came out of pretty much everybody. Here’s a recap of the mess that we couldn’t help but be confused by last night.
Consequence Is A Punk…Basically
Sorry if it sounds harsh, but I can’t get down with another man that punch/slaps another man in the back of the head when he’s not looking and had no idea you were feeling froggy enough to jump. And to be so proud of it makes no sense either. Where they do that at!???
“I do NOT tolerate disrespect…”
Well Cons, we don’t tolerate violence and foolery from grown men. But can we also take a moment to laugh at the fact that the security guard could literally pick him up like a child when he tried to go for Budden a second time around? Tossed him like a rag doll…
Rich Dollaz Says The Small P*nis In Those Leaked Pics Of Him Aren’t Him–Erica Disagrees
In the earlier part of the episode, a photo was shown of an alleged leaked picture of Rich Dollaz taking a selfie, showing off his abs and his manhood. He claimed that the abs were indeed his, but as for the small p*nis, he said the lower half was altered. But Mona Scott-Young asked Erica if she could confirm whether or not it was Rich (Ooooh the shade on Scott-Young’s part), and she replied, “very much so.” Ouch!
Yandy Is Keeping It Positive About Mendeecees
Watching the flashback clips of Mendeecees and Yandy together, did anybody else feel a little sad for her? They really are cute together, no matter how lost Mendeecess likes to act from time to time. Of course, he’s currently in jail trying to see what will happen with his drug charges (the situation about sex with the daughter of his ex was settled–not guilty), so their engagement is hanging in the balance. However, Yandy is keeping things positive no matter what. So when Scott-Young tried to ask Yandy what she would do if Mendeecees ended up in prison for a long time, she said “I’m not going to even address that hypothetical, because I believe in speaking all good things in existence.” Kudos to you, boo.
The Rat Came Out Of Raqi And Rashidah
If I said it once, I’ll say it again, I really don’t understand why Rashidah was on the stage so much during both reunions, as though she was the guest therapist there to drop knowledge. She was just there to bicker with Raqi, and we all know Raqi wasn’t about being the bigger person. At one point, after Rashidah told Raqi not to claim that she was Muslim because she is a disgrace, the two women went at it. Rashidah even found a few seconds to slip off her glittery stilettos to have proper footing before trying to box, but thankfully, they were pulled apart quickly. Raqi left the stage and said she was done, while Rashidah was basically scolded by Scott-Young, as she told her to put her shoes on and “cut it out.”
Lore’l Is Has A Good Conscience
During the conversation about race, aka, the shady things Consequence and Jen The Pen have said throughout the season, Mona Scott-Young brought up those infamous lyrics Consequence wanted to put on Lore’l’s track about light skin being the right skin. He basically said that your lyrics don’t define you and that she shouldn’t have tripped since they were his words and not hers. Luckily for us, Lore’l had a conscience and enough good sense to know that the lyric was wrong and that she didn’t want to disappoint young girls of all colors who might be listening to her music. Oh Cons…decisions like this are why Yeezy kept you in the background for so long…
Erica Did Mess With Tiffany, Because “She Was Easy”
So after all that beating around the bush, Erica confirmed that she did mess around with Tiffany, allowing Tiff to allegedly go down on her when they first met. She of course was proud of this, trying to make Tiff look like the fool she is for falling for both Erica and Rich’s game. But Tiffany stood her ground to let folks know that she did what she needed to, including basically getting the scoop on Erica, because she deeply cares for Rich. But the unanimous thought on Twitter last night was that she was low down and got played like a fiddle.
Rich Defines Love As Verifying Erica on Twitter; Calls Tiffany His “People” Instead Of A Love Interest
Clearly Rich Dollaz was hurt by Erica’s behavior, because in the middle of the sit-down with her and Tiffany, he ran off a list of all the things he did for Erica that showed his devotion. This includes getting her the song “Where Do I Go From Here,” buying her a car, and even verifying the girl on Twitter…
Hey, you show your love your way, he does things a bit differently. What can we say? But when Mona Scott-Young asked Rich about his feelings on Tiffany and what their status was (after she replied, “We’re going to be what we are forever”–whatever that means), he hesitated, pointed at her (as if to say, “Who??? Her???”) and said, “That’s my people.” Tiffany was clearly disappointed.
Joe Is Calm, Even In The Midst Of Drama…Maybe TOO Calm
Did anybody else feel like at any minute in last night’s reunion, Joe Budden might literally explode and take out everybody in the room? His speech is often so clear and calm at times that you would think he would raise his voice, that it comes off a little crazy. Or very crazy. For instance, the moment video was shown of Consequence punching/slapping him in the back of the head, as Joe was held back by security, he calmly smiled, eyes lit up, and he said, “That’s what I like…”
And when he told Mona Scott-Young that if Consequence didn’t get himself together that he would have to “approach him in a different manner,” a clear threat, his voice was barely raised, but he had that flicker in his eyes again–plain ‘ol cray.
What’s In The Future For These Ladies?
Erica – “More craziness.”
I wouldn’t be too proud to say all that, because she’s had enough drama in one season to last for the rest of her life.
Yandy – EGL (Everything Girls Love, her blog), working with her new client Lore’l, and she says no matter what you hear, Mendeecees is coming home soon.
Raqi – She’s doing DJing now. If you weren’t aware, it’s like the new trend for bored people.
Lore’l – Putting out new music on her own label, and of course, working with Yandy.
Olivia – You can still buy her song, “Where Do I Go From Here” on iTunes, and she claims she has a new album coming out soon. No specific release dates or other singles though…
Jen – She says she’s finally in a good place, and she plans to bring her blog back soon.
Rashidah – “My man put a ring on it.” So yeah, that’s what she’s going going on, she’s getting married soon.
Tahiry – More acting, more music, but as for more love with Joe…she ignored that question. But we know they’ll never leave each other alone.
