The Wrap Up: Love & Hip Hop NY Season 4
Love & Hip Hop New York, Season 4 has come to a close. As we await the reunion Chi'ma said it! is taking a final look back at the drama filled season! We watched Peter Gunz relationship unravel between him and the Mother of his two young boys Tara, as we simultaneously watched him build another with his eloped wife Amina. I was personally team Tara being that I have no respect for any woman willing to backdoor another woman's relationship! But as the messy pot began to boil I wanted nothing more than for Tara to move on and remove herself from a situation she simply could not win in. And she did just that, introducing some young eye candy to the show and putting Peter Gunz to shame, go Tara!
Saigon and Erica Jean we're a whole different kind of crazy, their ups and downs we're more less looney than interesting. How Erica was able to deal with Saigon's strange behavior and still conjure up the idea that shacking up with him was a good move is beyond me! From his random anger outbursts to his weird "biting his lip" smile, I can't decide whether I prefer him happy or angry. But all in all at least their son Lil B will have both his parents at arms length so there is some positive in the situation.
I was a little disappointed K. Michelle didn't give us more in terms of what's going on in her life. She made several appearances on the show, but it seemed as though she was just being there for what was going on in Tara's life. In all honesty, I want to see more of K. Michelle's true self as we saw on Love & HIp Hop ATL. Please bring back that feistiness we all know you have in there, we don't want to see no watered down sugar coated K. Michelle!
Yandy's story touched me the most out of anyone on the cast, she showed an empowering strength throughout the season! She held down a house, two young boys, and her own thriving business. All the while dealing with her fiance Mandeecees being imprisoned on terms she describes as miniscule. My hat is off to Yandy, she is an inspiration to women all over the globe. She displayed amazing character on a show that thrives on disenchanting behavior, go Yandy!
Tahiry's relationships we're all over the place all season long. She made amends with her sister Lexie after being out of contact and not speaking for 5 years. As great as that was, it was the only relationship of Tahiry's that seemed to move in a positive direction. Her relationship with Joe Budden became cold as quick as it heated up when she discovered foundation on his pillow cases when she returned from an audition. Can you say cheater?! Joe tried his best to fix what he had broken when he popped the question in Times Square via billboard! Tahiry sadly declined as she was still far too heartbroken to enter engagement with Joe who had stolen her trust for the last time. She also had a terrible fall out with long time friend Rashida who was very judging of her racy modeling career. In my opinion Tahiry received a few blessings in disguise making up with her sister and losing a cheating boyfriend and a messy friend!
Erica Mena shocked the world when she changed teams this season, introducing her new girlfriend Cyn Santana to the show. This did not sit well with her ex boyfriend/ manager Rich Dollaz who was clearly still in love with Mena. It was clear that Erica was torn between the two, going back and forth in her feelings on who it was she actually wanted to be with. She made it clear on several episodes that if Rich was to step up to the plate she would end the relationship she had with Cyn. Rich himself seemed torn, as he didn't say the words Erica wanted to hear but he did show jealousy towards Cyn and made sexual advances towards Erica on many occasions. This love triangle became quite sticky anytime Rich and Cyn had to be within the same four walls! The final blowout was at Mena's performance when Rich told Cyn that he and Erica indeed had sex just a week prior. Tisk tisk tisk Rich, do we kiss and tell these days? Although it seemed Erica ended things with both Rich and Cyn on the final episode, Mena's instagram profile has recent photos of her and Cyn which leads me to believe she worked things out yet again with Cyn. I say do what makes you happy, go Mena!
