Love and Hip Hop New York

When part one of the “Love & Hip Hop: New York” season 4 reunion special aired last week, fists were thrown and tears were shed all in the matter of an hour. Some issues that played out over the season went unresolved while others were laid out on the table for the audience to judge. Either way, it got pretty juicy. It was a surprise to see Mo’Nique hosting the Love & Hip Hop Reunion special but she clarified why she took the position and her reasoning was simple: she got hooked. “One Saturday there was a ‘Love & Hip Hop’ marathon and when I tell you I wanted to turn the channel and I couldn’t because I realized these people’s lives, their stories were so compelling and they take you on an adventure,” Mo’Nique explained. Mo’Nique was drawn in to the Mona Scott-Young production for the same reasons we were and she did an excellent job hosting.

Yandy reveals that she continues to talk to her fiance Mendeecees five or six times a day even though he’s still locked up. She continues to be a mother to his son from a previous relationship and to their son together while hustling and making money. But the spotlight was of course turned over to the love triangle between Erica Mena, her ex-boyfriend and manager Rich Dollaz and her current girlfriend Cyn Santana. When Rich sat down on the couch across from the ladies, things started to get heated. Rich says that he didn’t believe Cyn and Erica’s relationship was real because the latter was still receptive to many of his advances. “I’m OK with walking away, but don’t blame Rich Dollaz for what you do,” he yells. “Don’t come sit on my lap. Don’t come to my place.” Erica continues to say she “didn’t ask for this” and Cyn was emotionally uncomfortable with the fact that she’s just on the sidelines while the two of them are still clearly in love with each other.

The reunion also brought back Nya Lee, a stripper turned rapper who called Rich Dollaz a cornball during the first few episodes. Erica and Nya Lee begin a verbal spat and almost throw hands at each other. But after the ladies calm down, they realize that they shouldn’t be fighting and sort of make peace.

Tahiry opens up about why she didn’t accept Joe Budden‘s proposal. “I wanted work, I wanted consistency… the ring was the end result,” she says. Joe admits that having a woman on their bed in earlier episodes was unacceptable. But then he tries to tell her she wasn’t there through thick and thin in their relationship. Tahiry gets riled up as she denies all of his claims. I love these two together, their chemistry is awesome and I pray they can work things out and hopefully a marriage will be in the future.

Last but not least, Tara takes the seat on the couch and gives her side of the Peter Gunz and Amina scandal. To her knowledge, Peter was unfaithful to her two times during their 13-year relationship. Peter reveals that when he met Tara he was engaged to another woman. Tara explains that she would have never stayed that long in the relationship if she thought he was doing her wrong. Before the show ends, Peter and Amina grace the stage and perform their song ‘Don’t Wanna Be Right’ with a live band. After the showcase, Tara says she was down with Amina before knowing she was married to her man.

Looking forward to tonight’s part 2 of Love & Hip Hop New York Reunion.
