So It Seems That Love And Hip Hop’s Moniece Slaughter And Rich Dollaz Are An Item…

In yet another installment of ‘Things That Make You Go Hmm…,” it seems that two “Love and Hip Hop” stars, from different installments, are getting pretty close. Either that, or someone is hoping for a come-up and is going to desperate measures to get it.

The rumors started flying when Moniece, who is the mother of Lil Fizz’s son, Kameron, went on a couples vacation and tagged Rich Dollaz in one of her photos. Then there was the time when someone congratulated her on Rich allegedly being her man, and she sent back a kiss emoji. And now, there’s actual evidence on Twitter and IG of Moniece pretty much telling anyone who will listen that she’s in like with Rich:

As for Rich, he hasn’t gone to the same lengths to confirm that they are involved. But the pair have been seen out together recently, promoting his drink, 79 Gold, and hanging out:

Definitely an interesting pair if this is all true. But if Rich thought that Erica Mena was a handful, one season of “Love and Hip Hop Hollywood” definitely taught us that Moniece isn’t necessarily cool, calm and collected either. Nevertheless, good luck to them…

Diamond Strawberry Does Not Regret Not Introducing Her Daughter To Cisco

Diamond Strawberry quickly became one of the biggest villains on Love & Hip-Hop New York when, instead of telling her temporary boo Cisco she had a daughter, she pretended the noise he’d hear in the background when they were on the phone was a dog.


Fast forward a few weeks and that doomed-from-the-start relationship is now over. So does Diamond Strawberry have any regrets? Not really. We chatted with the reality star about her antics so far and she actually said she’s glad she never introduced her daughter to Cisco, who now seems to be in some sort of relationship with Jennifer Williams. Check out what Diamond had to say about that in the interview above too. What do you think? Does Diamond deserve another chance or will her character forever be in question?

Soulja Boy, Nia Riley & Why You Can’t Date Men Who Call Themselves Boys

The saga between Soulja Boy and Nia Riley has been long and drawn out. We witnessed it on “Love and Hip Hop New York” and then again on various social media sites. In case you missed it, here are a few key moments from what we’ve seen of their relationship.

– Nia knows that Soulja Boy has cheated in the past but sees the potential in him and wants to make it work.

– Soulja Boy is still young and wants to have fun. He throws a birthday party for himself at the house and Nia gets mad that he didn’t tell her he was doing so. She thinks he’s still behaving as if he doesn’t want to mature and be active in helping her raise her daughter.

– Nia had a miscarriage and, on camera, Soulja Boy offered absolutely no support.

– Nia was in a car accident and Soulja Boy realizes he doesn’t want to lose her.

– On the reunion, Nia says she’s not stupid and realizes that Soulja Boy is still probably still sleeping with other women.

And even though the two have broken up a time or two, as recently as this past Christmas, they were all booed up.

But today, Soulja Boy and Nia are definitely on the outs. How do I know? The same way I know when any celebrity breaks up, they put it on social media.

Here’s what Soulja Boy tweeted early this morning.

Wompity, womp womp. I really wish I were making this up.

I see Soulja Boy is on his Chris Brown steez…but a bit worse.

Listen, I empathize with Nia, quite a few of us have a story about dating a man who was not only immature but was downright disrespectful at times. But even with that being said, I still want to shake the hell out of her whilst screaming “Leave him alone!” And that’s the short, expletive free version.

Soulja Boy’s name literally says it all. He is a child…a very young child. A toddler perhaps.

Yeah, Soulja Boy deleted the tweets but every celebrity knows the screenshot is real…and swift. Anyone who would disrespect someone he claimed to love is just not someone you want in your life or your child’s, for that matter.

I don’t condone violence or anything but I wouldn’t fault Teddy Riley for “reaching out” to this clown and letting him know what he will and won’t do as it refers to his daughter.

14 Things I’m Tired Of Seeing On Reality TV

There used to be a time that after all of my hard work throughout the day I could come home (or to my dorm), kick my feet up, and veg out to some reality television.  Yes, some of the people involved were incredibly petty, and didn’t seem to have a full grasp on reality, but it was entertaining.

But now… I don’t know.  Maybe I’ve gotten too old to enjoy it?  They say that most things in life will have a season, and maybe my enjoyment of reality television is coming to an end?

However, until I stop tuning in every Sunday, Monday and Tuesday nights, can I just say that I’m getting a little annoyed with this reality season’s shenanigans?  The year, literally, just started and my eyes are already exhausted from eye rolling. Let’s go through the list, and feel free to add your own.  Let’s commiserate together!

“She Doesn’t Owe Me Anything” Tara Talks Building A Relationship With Amina

It’s not everyday that you see a whole lot of positivity on VH1’s “Love and Hip Hop” franchise. So when the franchises does have an uplifting moment, it’s pretty noteworthy. Today, it’s Tara Wallace providing the example of true sisterhood.

Though there was a time where she laid hands on Amina, after discovering she’d married Peter, these days she says the two are cool and working on building a more civil relationship. See what she had to say in an interview with VH1. 

“She’s a mom now so when you become a mom and you see someone’s child, it kind of changes your dynamic and your energy of the person. No matter what they’ve done.”

“It’s very easy for me to say ‘I hate this girl. I can’t believe this. I can’t believe this.’ But ultimately, I’m very aware that she doesn’t owe me anything. The person that I gave all those years to owed me something that I didn’t get, so I don’t want to take it out on her.”

“So in saying that I’m just trying to move forward. And in moving forward I’ve allowed certain things to happen. I’ve invited her to events that my children have had and just trying to respect her as a new mother. I know that’s a very sensitive time. I’ve been there, she hasn’t. So that alone… Me remembering what I went through at that time has allowed me to have a certain sensitivity to that situation. And our children are siblings so that’s not going to go anywhere.”

“I’m A Damn Good Mom” Diamond Strawberry Talks That Dog Reference, Cisco’s Lies And More

On one of the earlier episodes of “Love and Hip Hop New York,” the internets were buzzing with talk about Darryl Strawberry’s daughter, Diamond, and the fact that she was calling her daughter a dog to keep her raggedy boyfriend from knowing about her existence.  Well recently, in an interview with Hello Beautiful Diamond sat down to clarify a few things and explain why she lied, how her relationship with Cisco failed and more. Take a look at what she had to say in the quotes below.

What her father Darryl Strawberry thinks of his daughter being on the show. 

He doesn’t really agree with me being on but he supports my decision. His phone is blowing up all day and night but he just encourages me to be strong through all the b.s., everything the show puts me through.

The Dog Reference 

If there’s one thing I wish I could take back in the season so far is the dog reference to my daughter. Anybody that knows me, knows that my daughter is my world! I love that little girl to death. And the funny thing is when Cisco and I used to talk on the phone my dogs would really be in the background, yipping and yapping. My daughter would be there too, I’m not going to lie. But I just really wish that I could take that back. I’m a damn good mom. I give my first, last and everything to my daughter. People don’t know me. They get bits and pieces of me for an hour every night. So the people that know me, know what kind of mother I am.

Why she moved to New York 

I decided to move to New York after Cisco had been begging me for months and months to come. He promised me all these things, you know, ‘Baby, when you get here I have all of these modeling gigs lined up for you. My friend is the publisher of this magazine and we’re going to get you on the cover of this magazine…full spread here.’

Cisco’s lies

Learning that Cisco had a child was very hard for me. I was pissed. I felt like when I told him I had my daughter, that was the perfect opportunity for him to step up and say ‘You know what I cheated on you matter of fact, I had a baby.’ So for him to flip out on me, put me through all these changes when he’s hiding an even bigger secret, it’s f*8ked up. It’s not like I cheated on him. My daughter was four when I met him. Yeah, I withheld information. I should not have done that and I will never do it again but what he did is f*cked up.

I do no regret not introducing her to Cisco because look at what happened. He turned out to be a complete f*ck up. If anything, I protected my daughter. She always comes first. She came first in that situation so no, I don’t regret it.

Her group home

I am the face of a hair company, it’s called Echelon hair. I’m actually the co-founder of a group home for pregnant teens, runaways, victims of abuse. It’s in Los Angeles, it’s called A Safe Place Youth Center. That group home is my baby. I was there from day 1 when we were just thinking about doing it. It’s so dear to my heart because I was a teen mother. I know exactly how it feels to feel like you’ve let people down, you’ve let yourself down and to feel like your only identity is going to be having babies. I feel like I can relate to these girls so much and I just want to encourage and inspire them to push and be and do all that they can for themselves and their children.


The Love And Hip Hop New York Supertrailer Is Here…And It’s Hilariously Ratchet

love and hip hop new york super trailer feat

Just when you think one “Love and Hip Hop” franchise has outdone the other one, VH1 drops a trailer for the new show and makes us all reconsider. And today, “Love And Hip Hop New York” is getting their moment in the sun. In the supertrailer we get to catch up and learn all the answers to our questions.

There’s all the relationship drama. Yandy and Mendeecees are reunited and she announces that she’s expecting a baby girl.  Peter and Amina prepare for the arrival of their daughter and we watch the rapid dissolution of Erica Mena and Cyn’s relationship and the beginning of a new one with Bow Wow.

It’s going to be turnt.

And of course there are some new characters. There’s this older Amazonian looking White woman who comes in starting all types of drama saying Erica Mena used to work for her as an escort.


Former baseball player, Darryl Strawberry’s daughter is on the show and Rich Dollaz’ old girlfriend comes back with a vengeance. Apparently, this is the same girl who claimed Drake put a hit out on her.

And lastly, Peter and Tara have a nasty discussion about his actions last season and how he put Amina before her [Tara].  It seems like neither one of them is over the other.

Get into the trailer in the video below.

Bow Wow And Erica Mena Engaged

September 22nd, 2014 - By Veronica Wells

Erica Mena is something else… One minute, she’s talking about marrying Cyn Santana, the Chipotle-loving girlfriend we met on “Love and Hip Hop New York” and then the next, she’s kissing all up on Bow Wow on “106 & Park.” 

Since then Bow Wow and Erica have been seen in public together on several occasions. I didn’t think too much of it. But according to reports, the two have been dating for six months now.

That is until this weekend when she announced that she and Bow Wow are getting married.

Kind of unbelievable, right? But then again everything Erica does is unbelievable.

But there’s a ring and everything involved. See what she had to say during a red carpet interview with with Jack Thriller.

Jack Thriller: Is Bow Wow your boyfriend?

Erica: He’s actually my fiancé?

Jack: You getting married to Bow Wow?

Erica: Yup. 

Jack: It ain’t no where to go from there. 

Erica: I just gave you an exclusive muthafucka. Love you!

Well, there you have it.

Then Bow Wow confirmed the news on his Instagram account, posting a picture of Erica’s hand and ring alongside his.

I really have no words for this. It’ll just be interesting to see whether or not these two actually make it down the aisle. People are already calling this a publicity stunt. And in another Instagram flick, Bow Wow asked his followers what they thought of the engagement, which is an odd question. If you love somebody you probably don’t care what random strangers think about you all tying the knot. But then again, Bow Wow is a ham and is probably trying to get all types of shine from this.

Who knows…

What do you think about these two getting married? You think they’ll make it last forever? #KeithSweat

Tahiry Jose Viciously Attacked By A Man During New York Fashion Week

"Tahiry Jose pf"


New York Fashion Week (NYFW) is supposed to be a time of glitz and glamour, new beginnings and fabulosity. But unfortunately, for “Love and Hip Hop New York” star, Tahiry Jose, the week was marred by a vicious, violent episode.

Tahiry was backstage preparing to walk the runway for the first time for Toure Designs. But before she could make it to the catwalk, she was brutally beaten by a man.

Information about the attack is still continuing to surface but our sister site, Bossip obtained an exclusive about what happened that evening.

“Yesterday, (Monday evening), while preparing to walk in her first runway show with Toure Designs, reality star Tahiry Jose was viciously attacked by an employee of the PR firm, who serves as the production manager of the Helen Mills event venue, where the show was to be held. The man had shown a strong disliking towards Tahiry from the beginning of their interaction, with everything from rude comments to an utter lack of respect for her as a woman. One bystander who witnessed the attack stated that the altercation began when Tahiry questioned the man as to why he was being so rude to her, which triggered him to “black out” on her, spewing foul commentary as he walked closer to her. After Tahiry warned him not to speak to her that way, he got closer began strike her. During the attack, the man repeatedly struck Tahiry multiple times while attempting to drag her by her hair. It took 7-8 men to pull him off of her.”

The beating was so bad, Tahiry was taken to Lenox hospital. She was later released and is now recovering at home.

Bossip also heard reports that the root of the altercation started with the PR firm who was described as being continuously belittling and disrespectful toward Tahiry. And during the attack, they sat idly by and watched it happen before forcing Tahiry and her team into a room, slowing their exit to the hospital.

After the incident, the venue cancelled and the show was moved at the last minute.

Another day, another man striking a woman. This guy is clearly out of his mind and we certainly hope that there will be consequences for his heinous actions.

Joe Budden’s Girlfriend Accuses Him Of Slamming Her Head Into A Dashboard

Joe Budden's Girlfriend Accuses Him Of Slamming Her Head Into A Dashboard


Before he ever joined the cast of “Love and Hip Hop New York,” there were reports and even pictures that Joe Budden had beaten his ex girlfriend, video vixen, Esther Baxter. He was arrested for it, even wrote a song about, claiming that he restrained her. Meanwhile, Baxter came forward saying the abuse caused her to miscarry their unborn daughter.

Today, yet another woman has come forward accusing Budden of the same thing.

According to TMZ, Budden beat his current girlfriend, slamming her head into the dashboard of a car.

A source told TMZ that when Budden saw pictures of his girlfriend  with some other men, he flipped. They said Budden found the woman in a restaurant, dragged her out to his car and then allegedly choked her before shoving her into the dashboard.

The sources claim that afterward Budden drove them to his New Jersey home where police say the beating continued.

TMZ obtained images of the woman’s injuries, which you can view here.

The police are currently investigating.

It’s one thing to be accused by one woman but two…I don’t know what happened, but it seems that Joe might have a serious problem he needs to address.
