First, the press release:
Last night, VH1 and Myx Fusions Lounge along with Monami Entertainment and Eastern, celebrated the Season 4 premiere of the hit TV series, “Love & Hip Hop” in New York. Hundreds of industry insiders packed Stage 48 to watch the live premiere with the cast, which included returning members Yandy Smith, Rich Dollaz, Erica Mena, Joe Budden, Tahiry Jose and Rashidah Ali as well as newcomers K.Michelle (“Love & Hip Hop Atlanta”), Tara Wallace, Amina Buddafly, Saigon, Erica Jean, Cyn Santana and Nya Lee (Peter Gunz was absent). After the viewing of the juicy premiere episode, the cast participated in a fiery Q&A – moderated by Hot 97′s Laura Stylez — that covered everything from affairs, lesbian relationships, and record label launches. This is definitely the season to watch!

Now to the TEA….
Last night was the season 3 premiere of the original Love and Hip Hop: NY. I missed it. But I’m posting a full recap from VH1 blogger, who unfortunately is forced to watch this drivel. I’m guessing this will be the last season of LHHNY.
I don’t know who many of these people are. Of course, no reality show season premiere would be worth its salt without a manufactured fight to get the season started off on the wrong foot.
“Y’all want to play games. I wanted to tan,” said Tahiry.
Love and Hip Hop took the third season back to its roots in New York City. Veterans Yandy, Erica, Rich and Olivia dominate the first episode with the storyline of a couple new additions sprinkled in like Mendeecees Harris, Yandy’s boyfriend. Rapper Joe Budden and video vixen Tahiry are exes working to rebuild their friendship. Jen The Pen, Consequence, Raqi, Lore’l, Winter Ramos and Rashidah Ali are also among the freshman class this season. When love and hip-hop are involved drama is bound to ensue.
Tahiry spent five rocky years in a relationship with Joe Budden. Joe’s attempt at building a friendship with Tahiry goes something like this: Compliment her booty. “It got fatter or something?” Over lunch tell her how much being friends would mean to you. When her response is, “Don’t nobody want a f—ing hug. Do it look like I want a f—ing hug?” he tries another method — push her buttons.
