Don Bleek and Mona Scott Young
This past Thursday (January 3), I attended VH1/Monami Entertainment’s ’Love & Hip Hop Premiere Screening Party’ for season 3 at Kiss & Fly in NYC. The Ciroc, Monami, Hot 97, Bartenura, Club Create, Jabra and NFGTV sponsored event was spearheaded by 135th Street Agency. Executive Producer Mona Scott Young, and cast members Yandy Smith, Lore’l, Winter Ramos, Rashidah Ali, Joe Budden, Tahiry Jose, Raqi Thunda, Rich Dollaz, Erica Mena, Jen The Pen and Consequence were all in attendance. Olivia missed the premiere because she is currently overseas with her basketball player boyfriend. Everything wasn’t all good at the premiere either. Erica Mena and Rich Dollaz got pissy drunk! They couldn’t even answer questions properly. Erica also got into a small confrontation with Lore’l (who was the bigger person and behaved like the beautiful woman she is). Tahiry and Raqi were about to fight and I was about two steps away from them when all this was going down.

Without giving too much of the show away, on the premiere episode, Joe Budden’s ex-girlfriend Tahiry Jose and his female best friend Raqi (who Tahiry believes he was cheating on her with) gets into a big fight at Joe’s pool party. It got so ugly that Joe and his friend had to escort Raqi out, after Tahiry threw a cup of water in her face. What a love triangle! Rich Dollaz confirmed to Olivia that he and Erica Mena had something going on. He also told Olivia that he was still going to talk to other women while he was messing with Erica Mena. Rich got mad at Olivia when Erica walked out of dinner on them after Olivia told her that Rich was still seeing other women (Rich was the one who told Olivia to tell Erica). Yandy and her boyfriend Mandeecees are having issues because he is having a hard time becoming a father. He even left their baby shower to go to the club with Juelz Santana. Okay, that’s enough; watch the show for more! Love & Hip Hop 3 premieres this Monday January 7th, 8p on VH1.
