Three months ago we covered an update on Erica Jean and Saigon’s relationship post-”Love and Hip-Hop New York.” As we saw on the VH1 reality show, the couple had a tumultuous relationship. Instead of allowing their drama to infiltrate co-parenting their son, Brian, the couple enlisted the help Iyanla Vanzant. Both Erica Jean and Saigon will appear in the premiere of OWN’s newest season of”Fix My Life” May 10. In the preview Saigon notes:
“Ya’ll know I couldn’t let the story end like that. Check out both sides of the story on ‘Iyanla: Fix My Life.’ This show isn’t about yelling and screaming. It’s about the facts.”
Saigon seemed especially excited to meet with the 60-year-old life coach to resolve the issues he has with Erica Jean. Their episode will debut on May 10 at 9 p.m. est.

Being that Yandy seems to have the most sense on “Love and Hip Hop New York,” it was really difficult to see her go through the devastating experience of seeing Mendeecees Harris being carted off to jail, especially since the two had just gotten their love life together and welcomed their son Omere into the world.
So were excited to learn that Yandy had bailed Mendeecees out of jail. And we have to admit, it’s precious to see how the two are celebrating now that he’s a free man…at least for the time being.
Yandy and Mendeecees posted some pretty adorable pictures and a video.
Take a look.
Mandeeces Harris has been battling some pretty tough charges of drug trafficking since early last year, and if you watched this season of Love and Hip Hop New York, it almost seemed like the reality star and his family, Yandy Smith especially, had no idea if and when he was going to get out of jail. But rumors swirled earlier this month that Harris may have found a way to be released, especially after he (or someone) took to his Instagram a couple days ago to post a picture of Harris drinking a large glass of wine with the caption, “Having a drink…ya’ll missed me?”
Since the rumors started, Smith hasn’t said anything about them on social media. This could possibly be because she’s not allowed to talk about it, or maybe because he hasn’t actually been released.
However, she took to Instagram yesterday to post a picture of Mandeecees’ friends and to respond to rumors that her man is a free man.
“Now that I have a free second…if it doesn’t come from me. It’s probably not true. You know they love to speculate and exaggerate. @2thejew you got Instagram in a frenzy over that old pic! @babyjunior_stp, Preme…y’all go hard! He sends his love #rorolife #freethatman #nowbacktoworkIgo #filmlife #2daysinharlem”
Some of her followers are still not buying it though, wondering why he would mislead people on his Instagram page, and thinking that he possibly is “free,” as in, on bail, and that she just can’t talk too much about his case because it’s still pending. Whatever is going on, we just hope for the best for his kids at this point.
What do you think? Could he be free?
Rosenberg: I don’t know. I don’t know if I believe it fully. Erica I know you love yourself so you found someone who looks like you to make out with. Cyn: That’s not what it is. We just happen to look a like. Erica: I think it’s just because we’re always around each other. And I think it’s because you become what you eat. You know that saying. LaughsTheir sex life
Cyn: She’s very experienced. Erica: I’m passionate I take my time. Cyn: I’m very passionate too! She’s just way more experienced and I’m still stuck in my comfort zone**Fun Fact** Did ya’ll know that Erica Mena is only 26 and Cyn is only 21 years old! That kind of explains a few things right? The Labels
Cyn: We’re not lesbians. We love d*ck too. Cyn: I’ve like kissed girls before, I’ve never been in a relationship with a girl. She basically harassed me. I was pinned to the wall and I had no other f*cking choice. Erica: I had to put in a lot of man hours for her. Ebro: Would you get married? Erica: Yes, in Jersey. Cyn: It has to be legal. Rosenberg: You’re not going to tell us you’re not lesbians and then consider marriage, come on. Erica: See you guys are putting a label on it. I hate that. Ebro: So is it fear of the label? Cyn: If I cared, I would have never ever ever have done the show. Erica: Once they put you in like a label category it just haunts you. Yo Ebro. You’re sounding… you’re thinking about it too much. You sound mad old. Ebro: Most people who fall in love with each other and when it’s same sex, it’s a gay relationship or lesbian whatever. Erica: So you’re in love with your baby mom’s right? Ebro: I love her. Erica: So you wouldn’t sit up here and be like ‘Oh, I’m a straight man’ and run with that. ‘I’m a straight man, I’m going to get married.’ It’s the same thing. Peter: It’s an interesting point. I hear what she’s saying. It’s not a part of labeling unless it’s same sex. Erica: You only get labelled when it’s like the same and that’s so annoying.Did you catch it? That last little bit is the interesting part right?! After watching Erica and Cyn’s interview, I’m not any more convinced that they are indeed in a relationship. And I really could care less at this point. Erica gets on my nerves. What I find so interesting is the point they made about the labels placed on same-sex couples. She didn’t do the best job of explaining it but the sentiment holds up. If two women get married they must be labelled lesbians. Sadly, I know a few people who think identifying as bi-sexual is a farce. Smh… But, as Erica mentioned, we don’t place those same restrictions on heterosexual couples. You don’t get married simply because you’re hetero. The assumption is you get married because you’re in love with a single person. When we talk about homosexual relationships, rarely–very rarely– is the focus on love. It’s more about who sticks which parts where and what folks do in the bedroom. This conversation, whether it intended to go this deep or not, really did point to yet another way homosexual relationships and then marriages are marginalized in our society. Didn’t think I’d get that from an Erica Mena interview. But there it is. You can watch the full, sexually explicit NSFW interview on the next page.
Last year, the wonderful Stephanie Guerilus did a list article on 8 faces that have appeared on multiple reality television shows. This year, we’re back with more people, more shows, and a display of dedication to the reality show hustle like never before. There are so many (Noah, from Bad Girls Club season 3, and Saddle Ranch, I see/saw you!), but I wanted to include the most notable ones. Now, I’m not here to bash anyone’s grind. Actually, it’s the opposite, we’re here to bask in their longevity, starting with:
Ezra “Buddha” Masters
In the midst of cultivating an acting career, Ezra also sprinkled reality shows appearances in the mix. Though many remember his reality show exploits in “I Love New York 2″ by his choking up Tailor Made, or his overbearing nature in “I Love Money 2,” he also appeared on “Hell Date,” and “Gay, Straight, or Taken.”
Before we make you mad, we’ll just tell you who this little cutie’s suspect mama is. It’s Winter Ramos, the former Love & Hip-Hop New York reality chick who quickly got on a lot of people’s bad sides when she suggested Emily B stick with Fab because she wasn’t going to get anything better. Winter was a regular cast member on last season’s series of LHHNY and almost as soon as the cameras stopped rolling, her baby bump made its debut.
Winter confirmed her pregnancy in an interview with us this past March and now we see from Instagram pics that her little bundle of joy is here! Two days ago, Winter showed us the very first pic of her little one with the caption, “Say hi to Summer! #Loveofmylife.” She also posted a couple more candids of the cutie who appears to be all smiles all the time.
Since leaving LHHNY, we haven’t really kept up with Winter or the fallout from her tell-all book in which she exposed a number of rapper’s indiscretions, like her ex-boo Jadakiss, but from the looks of her Instagram account she appears to be doing well. Check out more pics of her 2-month-old daughter below. Isn’t she adorable?
In the past I’ve been anti-”Love and Hip Hop.” But,eventually, it got me, and like most of you I’ve been tuning in Mondays to watch the foolishness. However, I think I know why I stayed away for as long as I did. The dysfunctional relationship dynamics can be a little overwhelming to me. But, no one is perfect, so not trying to throw shade. But, if regardless of if you feel as if everyone on the show is just acting, and the the situations are scripted, these scenarios happen to many people everyday. People are living fractured lives by trying to stay in broken relationships.
Inspired by some of the things that I’ve seen on this season so far, here are are a few things that I would really like to point out that shouldn’t be tolerated in relationships.
Having never ending patience
Let’s address the fact that you will never have a perfect relationship, because any union that you’re in requires two imperfect people. However, there are things that just should not be tolerated in said union. If a person keeps on making horribly hurtful behaviors, constantly apologizing and still doing the same thing, you shouldn’t have to stay through all that. If you’re trying to give someone the benefit of the doubt, but they’re not taking your feelings into consideration, then let them be alone. Like Maya Angelou said: “Once someone shows you who they are, believe them.”
