Say what you will about how “real” reality TV is, if you had any doubts about the relationships of Love & Hip Hop, maybe these photos will help clear that ambiguity up. As we hung out backstage at the reunion, our photographer, Lauren Weissler, caught some sweet, stolen moments between the three most controversial couples on the show, Erica Mena and Cyn Santana, Joe Budden and Tahiry, and Peter Gunz and Amina.
Despite the turbulence brought on by Rich Dollaz, Erica and Cyn were very much in love (and in each others’ laps) during the taping of the reunion, and for the most part, Rich was nowhere near them. Peter and Amina kept things sweet and respectful for Tara’s sake since she was sitting five feet away from them the whole time, and Joe and Tahiry… Well, dammit, look at how cute they are. Just like Joe, we think there’s hope for these two yet.
