Celebrities are people too. And sometimes people do things that just don’t make a whole lot of sense. Whether they realize it or not, these celebs are going to regret their foolishness eventually — some sooner rather than later. Unfortunately for them, you can’t press rewind once the paparazzi get involved.
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.
You know, sometimes we have the one that we just don’t want to get away. Maybe we think they’re our “true love” or maybe it’s the “blinding” sex but we’ve got to keep that “one” around. Celebrities are no different and they want to keep that “ol’ thang” around them. Check out some celebs who go back and forth to their flames. What other celebs keep breaking up and making up?
Two weeks ago, we gave you all an exclusive on the fight that went down between Rashidah Ali and Raqi during the “Love & Hip-Hop” reunion taping in New York, and from the sounds of things there may be some unfinished business. Rashidah stopped by MadameNoire’s office to send a little message to Raqi, post-brawl, and she also gave her two cents on the likelihood of Yandy and Mendeecees’ relationship lasting — not much — as well as Joe and Tahiry’s. And she even told us a few details about her boo and their upcoming nuptials. Check out the interview now.
Yesterday we told you that an explosive fight broke out between Love & Hip Hop stars Joe Budden and Consequence during a filming break at the reunion show taping. Both rappers took to their Twitter pages with talk of the fight, seemingly taunting one another. According to Joe Budden, it all began when he and Tahiry were heading out of the building for a cigarette break. He says Cons snuck up behind him and “sucka punched” him.
We can’t say for sure exactly how things spiraled from there, but Joe did say that Tahiry “snuffed” Cons. As to be expected, Cons went on and on about smacking Joe and not being fazed by Tahiry or Joe’s blows, claiming that they both “hit like b*****s.” Joe on the other hand, made it seem like Cons was the one nursing his wounds after round two of the fight.
“Hope son ight, I was headed home & seen dude talking to police while Jen was crying.. #QueensAllDay tho,” Joe tweeted.
“Yo @ItsTheCons u good or nah ?”
Joe also informed his followers that they’d be able to see the showdown because it was all caught on tape.
”…it’s all on tape, so y’all can see the pu**y sh** 4 yourself.”
He wasn’t kidding. World Star Hip Hop acquired iPhone footage from a bystander who caught the whole thing on tape. The entire time Consequence’s girlfriend and co-star Jen the Pen can be heard screaming and threatening to call the cops. Eventually, security steps in, pulling them apart.

EXCLUSIVE: Beef Between Rashidah Ali and Raqi Thunda Gets Physical During ‘Love & Hip Hop’ Reunion Taping
If you’ve been watching Love & Hip Hop lately, you know that things have really been heating up between cast members. In this week’s episode, we saw characters Rashidah Ali and Raqi Thunda get into a rather heated verbal exchange during a charity event. Things got so out of hand as the ladies hurled below-the-belt insults at one another that event attendees looked on expecting a weave-pulling catfight to break out. Although the dispute did not get physical at the event, an exclusive source tells Madame Noire that they did get into an altercation at the Love & Hip Hop reunion show taping yesterday that forced security to step in.
What caused the the ladies to get physical, you ask? Well, it appears that Raqi isn’t really fazed by people calling her industry p***y and other insults, which imply that she’s promiscuous, but she does get rather bent out of shape when you talk about her child’s father and her religion. And that’s exactly what Rashidah did. Our source tells us that the dispute got turned up a notch when Rashidah called Raqi a “fake muslim.” We’re also told that Raqi lost complete control when the redheaded spitfire began talking about her baby’s daddy, going completely off and storming off of the stage. Clearly, her child’s father is a sensitive subject because even Mona Scott Young said, “Everybody knows they can’t say anything about her [Raqi's] baby daddy,” revealed our source. Looks like Rashidah knew which buttons to push. We can’t say for sure whether or not the two actually fought before bouncers intervened, but we can confirm that they came very close to tearing each other apart.
We’re also told that Joe Budden and his barely legal girlfriend, Kaylin Garcia have called it quits. But catch this: Joe and Tahiry announced that they are working on their relationship. They’re working on their relationship so much so, that they’re willing to jump into the ring for one another. According to Joe’s Twitter page, during a filming break, as he and Tahiry made their way outside to smoke, Consequence snuck up behind him and sucker punched him, which caused Tahiry to quickly react, “snuffing” Cons. Yes, Tahiry punched a man.
And then of course, there’s Cons’ side of the story.
What do you make of all of this? Will you be tuning in to the reunion show?

Even though season 1 of Love & Hip-Hop is about to come to an end, most viewers can’t say they know much about Kaylin Garcia — other than she’s Joe Budden’s girlfriend and doesn’t have time for him to be hopping on tracks with his exes. As it turns out, Ms. Garcia has quite the cult following on Instagram, most people trying to figure out how she keeps her curls so fly, not to mention that body. We decided to check in with the budding reality star to figure out who she really is, outside of her relationship and scripted TV, watch and see what she told us.
When there’s drama, everybody and their mama usually has a cent or two to contribute to the conversation. The latest contribution in the weird 3-way relationship between “Love & Hip Hop” cast members Tahiry Jose, Joe Budden and Kaylin Garcia is resident hothead, Erica Mena. The aspiring singer recently chatted it up with the YBF about all things “Love & Hip Hop” and of course, the interview couldn’t end without discussion of the show’s popular love triangle and those harsh rumors that Tahiry has herpes. Check out what she had to say.
On why Tahiry is jealous of Kaylin:
“Um… I think Tahiry needs to admit to the fact she is in love with Joe, and kind of acknowledge the fact that she is a little bit jealous of Kaylin. I think honestly Kaylin is playing her position the right way, Joe puts Kaylin on a different pedestal than Tahiry, and I think that’s what kind of bothers Tahiry, and that’s what made her react the way she did.”
“He kind of brags about Kaylin more ( as far as social networks). He’s quick to put out there that he’s in love with this woman. She’s young, she’s intriguing, she’s fresh, and aint nothing like good meat. Ain’t nothing like good fresh meat.”
On rumors of Tahiry having an STD:
“God bless if that’s true and definitely stop spreading it. If you’re a walking disease you should put yourself in a bubble and stay there. I think that could be true though… but then it may not but if it is she should definitely slow her roll.”
Interesting enough, Tahiry and Joe were recently spotted at her single release party together looking rather cozy.
What do you think of the constant back and forth between Tahiry and Joe? Is she jealous of his new lady?

In a very clear nod to former girlfriend aka “the closest thing to a wife,” Tahiry, Joe Budden recently solicited the help of fellow artists to jump on his new single. The song, which sounds a lot like “I’m On One,” features fellow rappers Fabolous and Lil Wayne. R&B crooner Tank is singing on the hook. As much as I wanted to dislike the song, it wasn’t half bad. And I could see myself dancing to it if it makes its way to the club circuit.

Exactly Where Is The END Of The Road? The Issue With Tahiry, Joe Budden And Those Ex-Boyfriends Who Never Go Away
“You’re still the best girlfriend I’ve ever had. My life would’ve turned out so differently if you never left,” my ex said hopelessly in a voice just above a whisper. We were having our monthly debate about why we can’t and shouldn’t get back together. Judging by the seriousness in his voice, one would think that we had just broken up a few months ago, possibly even a year ago. One would think he hasn’t had anyone special in his life since we parted ways. That isn’t the case though. The truth of the matter is that we’ve been apart for nearly six years. In those six years, a slew of women have entered his life. One of which he had a child with, and another is actually his current girlfriend who he’s contemplating proposing to.
He was the first man I loved romantically, my high school sweetheart. He was also the first to break my heart. I met him during my freshman year and we were inseparable all the way up until senior year. One October afternoon, out of the blue, he called me up at work to tell me that he no longer wanted to be in a relationship. I was floored. He had to be joking. I gave him some time to call me back and apologize saying, “I don’t know what I was thinking.” We had broken up only to get back together a few times before, so I expected that would happen again. That phone call never came. I called him for a few days in a row, crying and making a fool of myself. But after awhile, I gave up. I told myself it was over, gave up any hope of us getting back together, had my grieving period, and got over it.
About four months after receiving that dreaded phone call, I received another one. This time, he was telling me how he was ready to get back together. I took him back, but I instantly realized that things weren’t the same and they’d probably never be. Emotionally, I was finished, and no matter how hard I tried, I couldn’t revive those old feelings. Sure I loved him, but being in love with him was a different story. I stuck around for a while and tried to work it out. More than anything, I didn’t want to hurt him in the same way that he hurt me. But, what could I do? It was done and so I eventually ended it. In time he got over it and we remained friends, but not without him initiating his bi-monthly “I think we can work it out” conversations.
Six years later, a couple of boyfriends on my part and several girlfriends on his, we’ve still managed to maintain quite a strong friendship. I can’t really imagine him not being in my life, but at the same time, I will never deny that our friendship is abnormal. He still appears to be very much in love and hopelessly believing that there’s a possibility of a reunion between us, no matter how many times or how many ways I tell him it isn’t going to happen. I feel the guilt that I could possibly be sabotaging his current relationship by knowing how he feels and continuing to maintain communication with him. I know that I would never want to seriously date a guy who was still carrying on this kind of friendship with his ex. “I think I may propose to her,” he told me one afternoon on the phone. “That’s great, have you started looking at rings?” I asked him. “Are you sure you’re not still in love with me?” he responded. “I can’t imagine that I still love you this much for no reason,” he continued.
It’s conversations like that one that make me feel like I should cut off communication. But, no matter how many times I’ve tried, it never seems to work. Somehow, someway, we wind up speaking again. Sometimes it’s a death in his family. Sometimes it’s his daughter’s mother giving him grief. Sometimes he just needs an ear. And somehow, I always wind up being that ear.
Watching Joe Budden and Tahiry week after week on “Love & Hip Hop” with their constant back and forth is like looking in a mirror (minus the drink throwing and substance abuse, of course). It makes me come to grips with the fact that these dysfunctional and emotional relationships are unhealthy. It’s like they hinder growth and progress in a sense. One week they’re fighting about old stuff that happened during their relationship, the next week they’re friends again and the following week she’s his counselor and confidant. It’s all emotionally draining and you eventually have to ask yourself, where does this road end?
