Do You Think Erica Mena Went Too Hard At The Reunion Or Nah?


Erica Mena main
Erica Mena didn’t show for the Love & Hip Hop reunion but she still had plenty to say about her cast mates in her one-on-one with Mona Scott-Young. Erica ruffled some feathers last night by calling out the rest of the cast for being “filth,” going particularly hard on Chrissy Monroe, Diamond Strawberry, and her ex Cyn Santana. Fans were surprised and angry on social media, quick to leave comments on Mena’s Instagram, lambasting her behavior but Erica had no problem brushing it off. Read more…

DNA Info: VH1 To Air ‘Swab Stories’

by (@lizburrito)


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.

‘Love And Hip Hop’ Reunion Bonus: Are Cyn Santana And Her Man Ray A Good Match?

by (@ShireaCarroll)

One thing you can never call Cyn Santana is boring. Whether she’s doing impressions of Nicki Minaj, defending herself against her ex Erica Mena, or giving the cast of Love & Hip Hop nicknames, Cyn stays turnt up.

That’s why it came as a surprise to find out in real life her boo Ray is so turned down. Do opposites really attract? We caught up with Ray backstage of the reunion to hear him say what made him fall for Cyn. Read more…

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

by (@lizburrito)

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.”
