In this sneak peek from Monday’s upcoming episode, meet three more newbies, Jen “The Pen” Bayer and her boyfriend, rapper Consequence, and Winter Ramos, who you may already recognize from previous seasons as Fabolous‘ assistant.

Some people rent a cheapie little photo booth for their birthday party…and others, like Mimi Faust, hire a professional photographer to take some of the best pictures ever for their bash. In these shots from Mimi’s birthday party, held this week at Halo Lounge in Atlanta and well-attended by her Love And Hip Hop: Atlanta co-stars, we can’t get over how awesome these shows are, both for how funny some of them are, but how glam.
Having been to a couple of Big Angparties in our life (yes, it’s true, and it might just be our only real claim to fame), we can attest to the fact that the woman knows how to have a good time. In true Ang form, she invited some of her closest pals for an intimate evening at the Drunken Monkey this past Sunday for a Mob Wives premiere party, and right down to the hilarious, busty cake, it looks like it was a wonderful time. Besides the hostess, Mob Wives co-star Carla Facciolo was there, as were some of the Big Ang crew like Janine Detore, Neil Murphy (Ang’s hubby), Drop Dead Jen, and Linda Torres, plus a few special friends from Jersey Shore and Tough Love, and more. Take a peek at some of our favorite photos of the party in our gallery below.
Olivia Longott and her manager, Rich Dollaz, are the only cast members on Love And Hip Hop to survive three seasons of the show. We’ve seen her go through highlights and lowlights of her personal and professional life, and as we saw last season, a lot of her relationships evolved over the past couple years. In this interview with the Singers Room, she discusses her love life and the truth behind certain rumors you may have heard, like the one about Rich and Erica Mena being engaged. When asked specifically if she’d like to address any rumors in her life, she says “Rich and I heard this morning that he was engaged. We busted out laughing.” She continued by going so far as to say “He’s not really managing her. He’s just helping out somebody in need. So I don’t care, they’re not in my circle, they’re not a part of what he and I do, he’s just helping her separately.” (As for her own relationship, she says “I’ve been seeing the same person for the past year and a half and we’re happily in love and that hasn’t changed so, I don’t know.”)
Olivia also discusses the funny ways that reality TV can make viewers believe certain things about a person. “People say I may not speak up enough,” she says, but the opposite is true in real life. “I have the foulest and most disrespectful mouth in the world, but I try not to do certain things on TV if it’s not called for.” Be sure to read the full interview with Olivia right here to find out more about her music and more juicy gossip about Love And Hip Hop.

After last week’s fight on Mob Wives between Renee and Carla, wherein Carla wielded a butter knife in Renee’s face, everyone’s talking about how crazy it was. In this sneak peek from Sunday night’s follow-up, Drita and Big Ang get together to discuss Carla’s behavior.
“Was Carla not a maniac?” Ang asks Drita. “She went f—ing bonkers,” Drita responds. Ang knows one way to make peace between all the women however. A Botox bash! Make sure you watch till the end of the clip for Drita’s impression of two women fighting at a Botox party. It might be the best thing ever.
Napster. Piracy. Shawn Fanning. File sharing. These were some of the buzziest names and phrases around when it came to the new and exciting way to deliver music to the masses during the dawn of the Internet, which is the focus of VH1’s latest Rock Doc, Downloaded.
The new film, which premieres on VH1 later this spring, chronicles the way that Napster “changed everything,” from the way we get our music, to record labels, to the way that artists and fans interact. It might seem like old hat now (as you read this on your tablet while simultaneously checking your iTunes for new releases), but for one moment in time, this was the music revolution. Read more…
The Philly 4th Of July Jam is one of America’s largest outdoor concerts, but until now, you had to be in Philadelphia to catch it. That’s changing this year, however, because producer/performers The Roots have partnered with VH1, VH1.com, and Palladia to broadcast the concert this upcoming Independence Day on the networks and in an online livestream. The 2013 concert lineup will be released later this year, but past performers include Elton John, Jonas Brothers, John Legend, Queen Latifah, Common, and Lauryn Hill, so we’re certain this is not a show to be missed. For more information about the broadcast, read on.

We’re not sure why we’re so interested in Basketball Wives star Jennifer Williams‘ love life, but we are. Perhaps it’s because we just want her to find love after her long, drawn-out divorce with ex, Eric, or maybe it’s just that we can’t help but root for the girl no matter what she’s up to, but we’re happy to hear that she may have found a new beau in CMG music executive Cisco Rosado. Williams spoke to S2S editor Jamie Foster Brown recently about how she met Rosado and though the couple still seems shy, they are definitely cute together. Watch the clip above as Jennifer explains how they met, and as a heads-up, keep an eye out for Cisco who will appear on next Monday’s episode of Love And Hip Hop! Read more…
Tahiry is a professional model, which means she knows a thing or two about working the camera and showing off her best angles. And in case you couldn’t tell from last night’s Love And Hip Hop premiere, the woman has some serious assets to work with when it comes to her body. Just so you can get to know Ms. Tahiry Jose a little better, we pulled together a gallery of her most body/booty-conscious looks so you can check her out from all sides.
Last night on Love And Hip Hop, those of you who weren’t already familiar with Tahiry Jose met the model and actress who is also the ex-girlfriend of Joe Budden. Tahiry made a splash when she proved herself to have a fiery temper at times when it comes to all things Joe, and her relationship with fellow cast member Raqi Thunda proved to be a feisty one, too. Today, Tahiry showed up on The Breakfast Club to discuss her feelings about those two, starting with Raqi, who she believes might have had romantic feelings for Joe while he and Tahiry were together. “We were cool,” Tahiry says of her relationship with Raqi back in the day, though she stops short of calling it a friendship. However, she explains “You ain’t gonna be kickin’ it or smiling in my face or be sitting on my couch and then you’re like, you know…either trying to bang or just trying to ride that, you know…there’s just certain things you don’t do.” Tahiry also doesn’t believe for a second that Joe and Raqi were not intimate.
And while it seems like Tahiry is hung up on Joe because she’s still got strong opinions about this particular situation, she wants people to know “I’m not into Joe Budden. At all,” she says. “I could never get back with Joe…I don’t believe Joe could change.” Watch the whole video above to see more with Tahiry, and check out the Breakfast Club interview with Joe Budden, too, right here.
