Just in case you are among the remaining few who still believe the crazy antics on reality shows are real, actor/rapper Peter Gunz sets you straight.
I watched bits and pieces of Love & Hip Hop NY in between watching the Golden State Warriors utterly destroy the Philadelphia 76ers last night. The most interesting character on season 4 is NY stripper-turned-rapper” Nya Lee, left. We all know she isn’t a rapper, but anything goes in the world of scripted reality TV where viewers are willing to believe anything.
By the way, the show’s producer Mona Scott-Young should pay for acting lessons for Amina and Peter Gunz. They are horrible! And I’m not buying Erica Mena as a lesbian. Nya, yes. Erica, no ma’am.
Watch the full episode after the break.
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!
Special thanks to Ciroc, Beautiful Textures and media partners Power 105 and Hot 97.
Now to the TEA….
Ever since Love & Hip Hop NY star Yandy Smith turned up pregnant, tongues have been wagging that her baby daddy is some kind of child molester. Sandrarose.com doesn’t entertain such slander, but The Record (Bergan County newspaper) reports that Mandeecees Harris, 34, was arrested and charged with aggravated sexual assault and other indecencies with a 15-year-old minor. His trial is about to get underway — just in time to boost the sagging TV ratings of Love & Hip Hop NY.
Mona Scott-Young knows that she has a hit on her hands with Love & Hip Hop Atlanta, and not so much with LHHNY. Rather than focus on promoting the upcoming season of the original Love & Hip Hop NY (which is sure to be a wash), Scott-Young is still trying to get more mileage out of the hit Atlanta reality TV series.
Over the weekend, Scott-Young aired a LHHATL special titled “Dirty Little Secrets”. I didn’t watch the show, but according to celebrity blogger Jasmine Brand, “the 60 minute episode gave viewers an inside look on climatic story-lines like who REALLY started the fight between Joseline and Stevie J vs Lil Scrappy and Erica; how devastated Shay was when she saw Scrappy propose to Erica; why Rasheeda was REALLY so upset at K.Michelle at the reunion, along w/ more foolisheness.”
