Saigon and Erica Jean
Love & Hip Hop: New York fans hoped Vanzant would be able to help this volatile pair put some of the bickering behind them so that they could successfully co-parent. But it was clear almost immediately that these two had trouble even being in the same room together. Things went downhill from there.
Afterwards, Erica Jean said that the show made it even harder for them to get along. Jean claimed that even though she was the one who called the show, Iyanla took Saigon’s side:
“I was the one that kind of wanted help from Iyanla because of Saigon’s deal with the verbal abuse and the things I was enduring in our relationship. I understand that Iyanla was trying to help me in certain situations but a lot of things I think was inappropriate like bringing up plastic surgery, just things that didn’t have anything to do with me and Saigon’s relationship or me being a good mother.
So, I don’t think the show was effective in that way. I think that it was a very one-sided show and I think that Saigon manipulated Iyanla for whatever reason to kind of put it on me but at the end of the day, I guess it is what it is.”
