The Moms Of ‘Love And Hip Hop’ Held Their Own At The Reunion

View Photo Gallery

We know you all love the moms of Love & Hip Hop, and this season in New York, there was quite a bit of mama drama. From Judy and Kim‘s Suit-Gate to the wisdom of Mama Dollaz, we were never at a loss for the maternal presence this franchise has become known for. Of course that means that the moms were hanging around backstage at the reunion too, so take a peek at Kim, Judy, Diamond’s mother Lisa, Cisco‘s mom, and more while they were getting ready to take the stage!

And in case you missed it, you need to check out our April Fool’s spoof, Moms & Hip Hop! (Which we think should be a real show, don’t you?)

DNA Info: VH1 To Air ‘Swab Stories’


NEW YORK, NY (April 7, 2015) –VH1’s new reality series “Swab Stories” debuts Wednesday, April 29th at 9:00 PM ET/PT and seeks to answer the most fundamental question an individual can ask: ‘Who am I?’ This is where Jared Rosenthal and his assistant, medical technician Ana Lopez, step in – he owns and operates the ‘Who’s Your Daddy’ DNA testing truck. When the clinic on wheels hits the streets, people often gawk, laugh, snap photos, and have even been known to jump out of their cars at traffic lights. The truck sparks reactions wherever it goes, from Manhattan to the Bronx – plus on road trips to New Jersey, Maryland, DC, Chicago, and beyond.

When clients climb aboard, they are often seeking answers to burning questions they have kept buried deep inside of them – sometimes for decades. They reveal the doubts that keep them awake at night, and ask for Jared’s help in putting an end to their most personal mysteries. From astonishing stories like “I think I was kidnapped at birth and have found my mother” and “I think the man I’m dating might be my brother,” to personal revelations such as “I may have found my sperm donor father,” to touching stories like “I think I have a twin sister” there are no limits to the variety of questions people have about their DNA – right in the middle of traffic.

Jared and Ana, known as the “Swabinator,” collect their clients’ specimens and return to deliver life-changing news – and unlock deeply held family secrets – in a frank, respectful, and compassionate manner, every single day. Come along for the ride when “Swab Stories” premieres on VH1 April 29th, 2015 at 9:00 PM ET/PT. Be sure to ‘like’ “Swab Stories” on Facebook and follow @SwabStoriesVH1 on Twitter and use #SwabStories to join the conversation.

“Swab Stories” is executive produced by Seanbaker Carter, Joel Olicker, Stephanie Carter, Jared Rosenthal and Royd Chung for Powderhouse Productions. Susan Levison and Nina L. Diaz serve as executive producers for VH1.

Welcome To ‘VH1 Cribs’! Sky Gives A Tour Of Tent City In This ‘Black Ink Crew’ Bonus Clip

Is living in a tent in 110-degree weather really that bad? Uhh, kinda. In this Black Ink Crew bonus clip…er, excuse me, in this episode of VH1 Cribs, Sky gives us a tour of tent city, where she’s locked up in Arizona, and we get a look at everything: her bunk, which is also her dresser, her fridge, and her storage unit all in one, the bathroom-slash-laundromat, and what she uses as a hair dryer. It’s a little sparse and depressing, which leads us to the most important thing Sky tells us in this clip, “Say no to crime.”
