Last season of “Love & Hip Hop,” on-again, off-again lovers Tahiry Jose and Joe Budden appeared to part ways for good after Tahiry declined the rapper’s dramatic Times Square proposal. Though she briefly touched on it during the season, the vixen-turned-reality-star recently opened up to The Breakfast Club about her decision.
“I can’t trust him,” she said. “As far as the proposal, it was real, but everything Joey said about giving me that ring; that’s what Tahiry wanted. You’re going to give me a ring after you cheated because you thought that’s something I wanted? When do you give me a ring because you wanted to be with me forever?”
“We did talk for like a month or two after the proposal. But once it was about to air, he kind of started to act funny.”
Tahiry also touched on those pregnancy rumors that were floating around a few months back.
“There’s always rumors. Yeah, there was a rumor. Joey tweeted something like that. And then I was seen sipping champagne at some Time Warner event, so. I mean really, do the math. It was like hours later. I’m not ready for kids. I’m ripping and running everywhere. I mean, could you imagine me? I mean, what am I gonna do with a belly?”
“I actually have a meeting tonight. We just sit down and see what works for Tahiry, what works for VH1 and what’s going on in my life. That’s how we regroup after every season. So we’ll see. I’d definitely do another season.”
As for her beef with ex-best friend Rashida Ali:
“That’s what people do on camera—you never know what happens and how people might react. People change in front of the cameras. That caught me by surprise.”

‘That Will Never Happen Again—Ever, Ever, Ever, Ever:’ Joe Budden Says Tahiry Proposal Was A One-Shot Deal
During this week’s episode of “Love & Hip Hop,” we saw Tahiry Jose turn down Joe Budden’s marriage proposal. And even though Joe initially told his mom that he would not give up on his on-again, off-again girlfriend, he recently shared during an interview with Hot 97 that he will never ask for her hand in marriage again.
“No way, that will never happen again—ever, ever, ever, ever,” Joe said.
Though he didn’t received the answer he may have hope for, Joe says Tahiry’s “no” didn’t take away from the beauty of the night and the proposal.
“The answer didn’t take away from how beautiful the night was. For me, with the family there and just leading up to it, the ring and just wedding planning, like all of that was great, still.”
Joe went on to say that he doesn’t regret his decision to propose.
“It was great for a man to do,” he continued. “Like when you feel that way and you actually do it—sans the ‘no.’”
As for what he thinks of Tahiry’s reason for declining his proposal, he says that in the context of the show, he “no” made perfect sense. But as far as real life goes, her reasoning was off.
“Her answer wasn’t wrong on the show, but in real life, it was all wrong.”

Watching the mess that Ms. Joyce was making of her own daughter’s life on The Real Housewives of Atlanta AND the way in which Kandi cowered instead of putting her mother in her place makes me wonder how many of us deal or have dealt with the same type of issue. Even watching poor Tahiry cut off the ever-manipulative Joe Budden (but not really) on Love and Hip Hop New York reminds me of the fact that many of us at different points in our lives have suffered way more at the hands of meddlesome, untrustworthy, harmful relationships than we’ve ever needed to. It makes me wonder how many of us would inadvertently and purposely carry these same poor relationship patterns into the new year. In the past I have felt the sting of tears in my eyes after discovering that friends really could not be happy for me, no matter what good things came my way. I’ve endured countless talks with friends about why this man or that man I was interested in was no good for me when, in reality, some of these men were great catches. I mean GREAT. I’ve also battled with letting go of romantic relationships that clearly were dragging me down and not lifting me up.
Reflecting on my default of putting up with such toxicity in relationships has made me wonder, why did I do it? What am I trying to accomplish by allowing sisters or friends or boyfriends or my mother to infuse my life with negativity? Why do I feel I must endure it?
Loyalty? Respect? How much loyalty is a significant other showing me when they cheat or treat me unfairly? How much loyalty is a friend showing me by deciding to hate every good thing that happens in my life? How much respect is a sister or mother showing me when they meddle so terribly in my personal affairs and destroy my relationships?
Shouldn’t loyalty and respect be reciprocated? Shouldn’t I have enough respect for and loyalty to myself to check the people in my life when they are behaving negatively towards me? Loyalty to someone doesn’t mean that I silently take abuse or ill-treatment. Respect doesn’t mean that I must go along with everything someone says or does.
With the new year here, I have a new resolve to feed the positive aspects of my relationships and to starve the negative. This includes loving those who pour affection and encouragement into my life and setting specific and fortified boundaries with those who drain and exhaust me. I have accepted that this does not mean I love or appreciate any one person over another. It simply means I choose to live my best life. Living my best life is only possible when I take responsibility in and for my relationships.
I’m taking self-love and self-care into the new year with me. What doesn’t elevate, needs to be stopped. What doesn’t promote growth and happiness will not be a part of my 2014. I deserve to be as stress-free as possible. I deserve to enjoy life and to be surrounded by those who genuinely enjoy it as well. I have a say in how I’ll be treated. I have a say in how my new year will progress. And I say, positivity over everything.
Love & Hip Hop fans across the nation were thrilled to learn that on-again, off-again couple Tahiry Jose and Joe Budden finally stood still long enough to admit that they loved each other and wanted to work things out. Unfortunately, their loving reunion was short lived. As millions of people watched their love unravel once again at the start of the current season, it was hard not to feel for the video-vixen-turned-actress. In an interview with Latina, the Harlem native opened up about her recent heartbreak and lessons she’s learned along the way.
“I’ve learned from all the situations I’ve gone through with Joe. It’s hard to go through heartache and pain, and in relationships it’s hard to deal with these kinds of situations, but ultimately you grow from them,” she said.
She went to discuss how her situation with Joe helped to show her what she wants and does not want out of a relationship.
“You start to really know what you want and what you’re looking for. So it’s never a mistake, it’s just a lesson learned and experience, and you need that in order to grow.”
Tahiry also expressed that she believes a lot of women watching the show can relate to her situation.
“I’m sure a lot of women can relate to my situation. I think that what I’m going through in my relationship and even dating a rapper, it’s really relatable and happens in regular life. So yeah, I want the audience to know I’m just a regular women going through regular life situations, it just so happens to be in the spotlight. And I choose to share it just because if I can help one person, it’s pretty dope.”

To take inspiration from Beyoncé‘s hit song, “If I Were a Boy” — if I were a man, I would be spitting mad about how my black maleness is being presented on the Love & Hip Hop franchises.
Seriously, week after week, and over the span of three years, six seasons and two series (with plans of expanding the franchise by two more series), we have watched black men routinely embarrass and flat out dishonor themselves by engaging in some the worse representation of black manhood to be witnessed on television.
And yet it is black men who have been the least likely to stand up and speak out against these unflattering caricatures of their collective image.
The proof speaks for itself
Think I’m exaggerating? Well, let’s take inventory of the “men” who have thus far graced the sleazy showcases of both the Love & Hip Hop New York City and Atlanta franchises. Here are their main stats:
- Peter Gunz: Living with the mother of his two children for over 13 year; has a history of infidelity; keeps his marriage a secret while continuing a live-in relationship with the mother of his kids.
- Lil Scrappy: A self-proclaimed mamma’s boy, with a long criminal rap sheet; did a stint in rehab for marijuana addiction in order to avoid jail time for failing to pass a drug test while out on probation; a womanizer, who regularly cheated on his fiance and mother of his son; had on-air violent fight with fellow Love & Hip Hop Atlanta cast member Stevie J.
- Stevie J: Nicknamed “Sleaze-O” for his inability to stop his womanizing and scheming on women; cheated on his long term girlfriend and mother of his daughter with an exotic dancer, whom he ended up getting pregnant and then goading into an abortion; once used money given to him by his fiance to buy the silence of his baby’s mother; proposed to both his fiance and mother of his children at the same time, which resulted in a huge fight.
- Consequence: Believes that “white is right,” yet even with his white woman has controlling issues to the point that he doesn’t allow his Christian white baby’s mom to attend family function of of respect to his own personal Islamic beliefs; is tight-fisted with money, but doesn’t want his partner to work; is notorious for having several on-air violent fights with fellow Love & Hip Hop NY cast member Joe Budden.
- Joe Budden: A womanizer; was accused of domestic abuse by two of his former cast members, including current girlfriend and co-star Tahiry; a drug addict; was involved in several physical altercations including with fellow cast member Consequence.

Last night we got a little drama from every storyline on “Love & Hip-Hop New York” and as usual the chaos did not disappoint. From Tara putting Peter Gunz out of her house, to Tahiry putting Joe Budden in his place — again. Here are the top messy moments from last night’s episode of LHHNY.
There’s nothing like a man with a deep husky voice whispering sweet nothings in your ear. When it comes to these 15 famous men, they have voices that could melt butter and do a few other things we can’t talk about on MadameNoire.
Ladies fell in love with Idris Elba on HBO’s “The Wire.” Playing the second-in-command Stringer Bell, Elba’s character was killed off at the end of the third season of the hit show, much to the dismay of women everywhere. Already popular across the pond, the English actor saw his stock rise in the US thanks to HBO and he soon found work here on television and in film. Elba can currently be seen in Thor: Dark World and will play the iconic Nelson Mandela in Mandela: Long Walk to Freedom, which is expected to hit theaters at the end of November.
Well, ladies and gents “tomorrow” finally came last night when Peter Gunz broke the news to Tara that he’s been sleeping with Amina on the side — and that was just the tip of the drama-filled iceberg. Check out all the highs and lows of episode three of “Love & Hip-Hop New York” on the next few pages and tell us what you thought about all the nonsense that went down on LHHNY.
Correct me if I’m wrong, but I think the general consensus is Joe Budden and Tahiry are the cutest, and surprisingly least dysfunctional, couple to come out of “Love & Hip-Hop New York” in a long time. Still, the two have some clear issues.
Though we’re watching the pair as a couple on LHHNY now, we can say for sure their love doesn’t outlast this fourth season because both have admitted they’re no longer in a relationship. For some reason that fact hasn’t killed discussions of these two producing a little bambino down the line, but as far as Tahiry’s concerned, she won’t be carrying anybody’s baby until she’s their wife. When VH1′s blog asked Tahiry if she’s starting to get that motherly itch, she said:
“I have been, I have this whole maternal thing. I see babies now and it’s just different than I used to be. My workload is intense right now, but yeah, I’m getting around that time where it’s time to make that space to have a family. I still gotta find a husband first, I’m trying to do it the right way, I’ve waited this long. But yeah, I want babies.”
Seemingly missing her point about wanting to do it the right way, VH1 then asked Tahiry whether she’d just co-parent with Joe instead of waiting to walk down the aisle since she has babies on the brain. To that Tahiry said:
Ummm…right now, my thoughts on having a baby with Joe to co-parent is a NO! It’s a no. At one point it probably would have been a yes, but right now, no. Being parents is something real, and I don’t think Joey’s ready for that. But you can ask him yourself.
Thank goodness someone on LHHNY has sense enough to not put the cart before the horse. Of course, Joe Budden doesn’t feel the same way — which speaks to Tahiry’s point about him not being ready. When he was asked about his own baby fever, he replied in the least uncouth way possible:
“I tried to put a baby in Tahiry but she wasn’t ready to trust, so I’ll wait a little longer.”
One good thing is Joe’s not down to co-parent either. He told VH1:
“Why would we be co-parents? We’ll be together, mark my words. I’m definitely coming at her. Soon. End quote.”
We shall see.
Do you think Joe and Tahiry could ever get it together to be married and have a family?
I could probably count on my hands and toes the number of people who actually believed Tahiry when she claimed that she was done with Joe a couple of months back during the Love & Hip-Hop New York reunion special, but I must admit that this little news bit is rather shocking.
Rumors that voluptuous video vixen Tahiry Jose is expecting her first child by on-again, off-again boyfriend Joe Budden have been swirling for some time now and lately, the cryptic tweets being posted to Joey’s Twitter page have only been helping to fuel the rumors. Judging by the “She Don’t Put It Down” rapper’s recent tweets, things are currently off between the tumultuous pair, but something larger than their heart-wrenching, fiery soul tie may keep the reality stars glued together for at least the next 18 years.
Now Tahiry has yet to officially respond to the tweet or the rumor, but she did release a subtweet, in which she appears to be urging her Twitter followers not to believe everything they hear.
Now we would take her word for it, but she said the same thing a few months back in response to rumors that she and Joey were giving their relationship another shot and well, we see what happened with that. In her defense though, she recently posted a photo of herself with a glass of wine at co-star Yandy Smith’s Time Warner Cable event, but that too could’ve been a ploy to throw us off. I suppose we will all have to sit back and watch it all unravel. As always, we will continue to keep you posted as this story develops.
What do you think? Does Tahiry have a bun in the oven or is Joe just being Joe?
