After months of speculation, VH1 has officially confirmed season three of Love & Hip Hop. So, who’s returning to the show?  Yandy Smith (who ended her eight-year management role with rapper Jim Jones and has since pushed out a healthy, baby boy with boyfriend Mendeecees Harris); Erica Mena (who is pursuing her music career, alongside her manager and new boyfriend, Rich Dollaz); and Olivia Longott (who is working on her new album, plus we hear that she’s trying to come to peace with her manager Rich dating Erica). So who are the new kids:

  • Joe Budden- Fierce free-styling artist Joe Budden is widely considered one of hip hop’s most gifted lyricists. His Grammy award-winning song “Pump It Up” was featured in the hit movie 2 Fast 2 Furious. This ladies’ man is also known for posting about his very public relationships and break-ups online.
  • Tahiry Jose- Tahiry is a charismatic urban model who is best known for her rapid-fire sarcasm as well as her painful and very public break-up with Joe Budden.
  • Raqi Thunda- Radio personality and DJ Raqi Thunda has no problem keeping it real. Raqi and Joe Budden insist they are just long-time friends. However, Raqi and Joe’s ex, Tahiry don’t see eye- to- eye and have a tumultuous relationship.
  • Consequence- NYC rapper Consequence has established a successful career working with the likes of Kanye West and A Tribe Called Quest. His five year relationship with fellow cast member Jen Bayer and their 1-year old son Caiden has left the couple bickering about how to raise the child based on differing cultural and religious beliefs.
  • Jen “The Pen” Bayer- Known for dishing up gossip with DJ Whoo Kid and The Hot Boyz of Chicago, Jen has spent the past year raising Caiden, her son with cast member Consequence.
  • Winter Ramos- With a brief appearance in the second season of “Love & Hip Hop,” Winter Ramos, former assistant to rapper Fabolous, is making her name in hip hop history as she writes a tell-all book on her roster of famous ex-boyfriends and her life in the music industry. She is currently the Creative Costume Designer for Flavor Unit Films.
  • Rashidah Ali- Known as the “Blinged Out Bombshell,” Rashidah is most known for being a shoe consultant to the stars and is currently working on launching her own shoe line, Encore.

The new season premiers Monday, January 7th at 8PM on VH1. What do you’ll think about the line-up? Will the show suffer without Somaya Reese and Kimbella

    #trainwreck! And the fact that people keep using the term “urban model” irritates me! Call it what it is! Curvy (usually black) women with no real talent and maybe no education posing half nude for a couple thou(thousand)!

    This show should be called hip-hop most rachet bitch’s now that emily an chrissy left there is no class to the show.

  5. Sally Cronshaw, from Worsley, has applied to open the shop at 43 Sunderland Street. If it is granted a licence it will be the second sex shop in the town.
