Our newest VH1 Blog contributor, Love and Hip Hop‘s Jen Bayer (who viewers have come to know as Jen The Pen), is happy to be blogging again. And so that you feel you know Jen a little bit better there’s 10 things you didn’t know about her, from her mouth to your ears.
Through her storyline this season we’ve witnessed the role religion plays in her relationship with Consequence and her attempt to reestablish her career in radio after taking time off to be a mommy.

There have been some of you out there who have followed my career since my days on BET’s The Ultimate Hustler and then there are some of you who I’m sure have said, “Who the eff is this girl and why does she belong on Love and Hip Hop?!!
I do, however, hope since we are nearing the end of this season that you have figured out exactly why I belong on this show and just why my life is exactly the title–Love & Hip Hop. And in case you needed a little more digging in to who Jen The Pen really is, I drew up this list of 10 things you didn’t know about me and maybe should know .
10. In 2002 I wanted desperately to work in the music industry (and HATED college) so my mother and I made a deal if I could prove to her and get the gig I wanted as a personal assistant that I could take a year off from college. That year I started working as a personal assistant to the CEO of Big Shots Records, which at the time was a subsidiary label of Epic Records.
9. In 2004 I fell in love with radio and started an internship with “The Wendy Williams Experience.”
8. 2005 made me a Reality TV Star! I appeared as a contestant on BET’s The Ultimate Hustler. This is when Dame Dash coined the nickname “Jen The Pen” for me. His words exactly (I swear I will never forget them!), “I’m gonna call you Jen The Pen because you’re always writing everything down.”- Dame Dash
