Four years ago Erica Mena graced us with her presence on Love & Hip Hop and reality television has never been the same. #MenaMondays became a staple, much like many of Erica Mena’s outrageous actions and sayings (ahem, “You can’t handle my mouth motherf***er!”). Now, Erica Mena has taken her final bow.

After getting engaged in Paris, Ceaser and Dutchess gathered their friends and family to celebrate their engagement. We had to do a double-take when we saw Love & Hip Hop’s Jhonni Blaze in attendance.
Yandy Smith is known for being the smart, sensible, and mature cast member of Love & Hip Hop, but this week she had us scratching our heads in confusion. At her baby shower, Yandy signed the paperwork to change her last name to Harris in a commitment ceremony with her fiance, Mendeecees.
From the classic Southern Belles to the outdoorsy/don’t-mind-getting-dirty type of girls, the series premiere of Hot GRITS served up a prime example of Southern Hospitality. When we first meet Emily, she has no hesitation in claiming that Valdosta is too small of a town for her and that she is ready for a more glamorous life in Jacksonville. When talking to Ratchet at the lake, she makes it pretty clear that she is above the simple lifestyle that Valdosta has to offer and that she is disgusted at the thought of trying raccoon meat.
In two words the Mob Wives Season 5 reunion was a hot mess. Natalie Guercio left the stage twice, Drita D’Avanzo left once to go check on Natalie Guercio, and host Vivica Fox was brought to tears and made an emotional exit.
Since the beginning of Mob Wives Season 5, Natalie Guercio has been on the defense. It started with her fight with Karen Gravano outside the Drunken Monkey and eventually led into a hatred from Natalie DiDonato (who eventually proved to Drita that Natalie Guercio was a liar). Natalie Guercio has always been one to use her words as her weapon and not back down from a fight with anyone. However, when Drita notices a bunch of unfamiliar people at Renee’s party, the women begin to wonder is Natalie Guercio brought a group of people as protection.
After Renee asks security to remove the unwanted guests from her party, Natalie admits in her confessional that she brought her friends as back-up because she has constantly been attacked by the other women. Big Ang, Karen, Renee, Drita, and Natalie DiDonato are in shock that Natalie Guercio brought uninvited guests in order to protect herself in case anything went down between her and Nat D. At the end of the episode it appeared that the rest of the women realized Natalie Guercio’s true colors and decided to write her off for good. Only time will tell…

Puma and Ceaser have had their fair share of issues throughout Black Ink Crew. Their 15-year friendship first exploded when Puma left Black Ink but eventually Ceaser and Puma were able to make amends at Puma’s bachelor party. This week their friendly truce came to a sudden screeching halt the instant Puma’s chicken wing hit the floor of Black Ink.
Last week on Love & Hip Hop Rich Dollaz’s studio session with Jhonni Blaze turned up all the way when Precious Paris’ surprise visit did not go over well with Jhonni. Things got intense real quick and Jhonni’s temper caused her to put her hands on Precious Paris. After a straight, no-nonsense talk with Rich, Jhonni understands the error of her ways and humbly apologizes to Precious Paris who responds with a retaliation POP! to Jhonni Blaze’s face.
This week, original cast member Carla Facciolo made an shocking unexpected return to Mob Wives. The last time we saw Carla was in season three when she was feuding with both Renee and Love Majewski while Drita acted as the peacemaker. When Carla arrived at Renee’s Mob Candy anniversary party she was welcomed with open arms by Renee and Karen but Drita seemed to be very uncomfortable. Drita claimed that she and Carla are not enemies, but they are not as close as they used to be.
The last time we saw original Mob Wives cast member Carla Facciolo it was season three and she recovering from a brutal attack against Love Majewski. When Carla unexpectedly showed up at Renee’s one-year anniversary party for Mob Candy, we were totally caught off guard – much like Drita.
