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!
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.
Who had the best look of the night at the Love & Hip Hop Hollywood reunion? And more importantly, how can we recreate those great looks ourselves?? We spoke to the glam gods and goddesses over at the Teknique Agency, the hair and makeup team responsible for making these ladies beautiful, and they gave us the download on how to recreate all the best looks of the night, down to which curling iron you need, what brands of eye shadows you need to layer, and who designed which dress. Learn how to get Nikki‘s old Hollywood curls, Nia‘s feathery lashes, or Moniece‘s sleek, slick ‘do now!
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.
What does it take to get ready for a Love & Hip Hop Hollywoodreunion? 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.

Yesterday, K.Michelle dropped a bombshell on us when she revealed that she did indeed have an 8-month-long affair with the sexiest man we’ve ever seen, Idris Elba. Today, the detectives at VH1′s The Gossip Table revealed even more details about the affair, including the reason for their breakup, and how they kept the relationship out of the press.
Relationship rumors surrounding the pair began to swirl when it was revealed that he directed her Rebellious Soul music video. Now that we know that it’s true that K.Michelle and Stringer Bell were for real, how do you feel? Personally we can’t get over our jealousy.
The claws were out in more ways than one at the Love & Hip Hop Hollywood season one reunion — did you see those womens’ nails?? In our exclusive photo gallery, check out the nail stylings of the ladies in the cast, from simple and sleek to fully bejeweled.
“Can you please go knock her out real quick?” Ray J asks Princess.
“You want me to?
Princess seems like a cool girl, but there is something about her relationship with Ray J that makes us uncomfortable. Maybe it’s the way she said in part one of the reunion special that Ray J getting back together for two weeks with Teairra was her fault. Or maybe it’s when she said that she would never cheat on Ray, no matter what he does. But the weirdest thing of all for us was the moment that he told Pincess to attack Morgan, and she did. It all went down in part two of the Love & Hop Hop Hollywood reunion special, watch that moment again now.
We have to admit that there were no huge fashion or makeup missteps at the Love & Hip Hop Hollywood reunion this season — everyone dressed to suit their personalities and the makeup was glittery, dewy, and just plain pretty. One of the things we obsessed with the most this season was the brows. Just look at them! Everyone was perfectly penciled in, faces framed just so, and everyone’s brow game was on point. Take a closer look at the ladies and the precision that went in to completing their looks and let us know who had the best arches below! (And stay tuned later this week for makeup tutorials from the glam squad responsible for all the looks you see below!)
