‘Love And Hip Hop’ Check Yourself: “Mena, You Owe Me Money!”

This week’s episode of Love & Hip Hop: Check Yourself features Erica Mena, Chrissy Monroe and Rich Dollaz, and it’s safe to say that no one likes each other and they have no problem expressing their feelings. “I’m gonna be forever embarrassed that this is someone I was actually dating,” Erica says when she watches Rich show up in “the same Sean John s*it that he had on when I was with him.” The two argue over their relationship, the fact that she owes him money for putting out a record that didn’t do well, and then Chrissy chimes in with her list of grievances against Erica. “Erica tries to portray herself like she’s some bad bitch — I can hardly tell!”

Watch the ep now and stay tuned every week after Love & Hip Hop airs for more Check Yourself!

Flashback! ‘Love And Hip Hop’ Star Chink Santana All Booed Up With Ashanti In Her “Don’t Let Them” Video

Love & Hip Hop star Chink Santana is with Chrissy Monroe these days, but you may have caught that moment in the premiere episode where he mentioned how he used to work with Ashanti. Chink produced Ashanti’s first two albums and even appeared in her video for “Don’t Let Them” back in 2005, and the nature of their relationship was always up for debate in the rumor mill…Ashanti was with Nelly at the time and report swirled that both she and Keyshia Cole were both dating (and feuding over) Chink.

In a 2012 interview, Chink said of Ashanti “I love her to death…Every record that she ever had was a hit record and I gave it to her. She needs me like I need her. She’s the most phenomenal writer I’ve ever met before. I don’t know what else to say about her without getting all emotional. I’ll give her my ankle if she needed it.”

Check out these photos below of the two from back in the day and see what you think about their relationship!

Watch The Kiss Between Erica Mena And Bow Wow on ’106 And Park’ That Got Cyn So Mad

By now we all know that Eric Mena is engaged to Shad Moss (a.k.a. Bow Wow), but in the season premiere of Love & Hip Hop season five, she was still exchanging “I love yous” with Cyn Santana. But Cyn was a little angry that during an appearance on 106 & Park, Erica exchanged a kiss with Bow Wow. Clearly it was not just for the cameras, as we now know.

In case you missed that moment, allow us to bring it to you again. Watch it and decide for yourself if true love blossomed before your very eyes.

The Best Backstage Photos From The ‘Love & Hip Hop Hollywood’ Reunion

View Photo Gallery

In our opinion, there should be a whole other bonus episode based around what goes on backstage at the Love & Hip Hop reunions: the gossip, the tension, the nerves, it all plays out and is fascinating to watch back there before the real cameras start to roll. We took our crew behind the scenes to see who was palling around, who was staying far, far away from one another, and who was genuinely having fun during the Love & Hip Hop Hollywood reunion (te answer to the last question is “Omarion” — that man was in a good mood the whole day).

Whether they were in their dressing rooms or sitting onstage waiting for their chance to speak, we got photos of the whole cast backstage — here are the very best pics from the set.

Works In Progress: ‘Love And Hip Hop Hollywood’ Stars In the Makeup Chair

View Photo Gallery

What does it take to get ready for a Love & Hip Hop Hollywood reunion? Dozens of stylists, makeup artists, a LOT of new hair, some diamonds (or maybe cubic zirconia), and a lot of attitude. We grabbed some shots of the cast while they were in the makeup chair, so take a look at them in the process of getting ready — some look more polished than other, some were getting their hair sewn in, some were getting the hair chopped off, and some were flawless without an ounce of makeup. (Apryl Jones, why you gotta be so flawless?). Take a look.
