We’ve just learned some cast members of “Love And Hip Hop” are demanding a pay raise and won’t return until they do. Although the entire cast was to meet on Tuesday for the filming of the upcoming season 4 trailer, not all were in attendance.
TMZ reports, Sources close to the show tell us, all cast members were supposed to be present Tuesday in NYC to film a trailer for the upcoming season, but only half of the cast showed up. The other half stayed home in protest because negotiations for their new contracts had gone sour.
We’re told the half that did show up then got upset … believing they too were entitled to revised contracts … and stormed off.
While most of the cast members are asking sfor more money some are upset on how they were portrayed last season and want input on future shows.
More meetings are scheduled until an agreement can be reached. We’ll keep you posted.
Although most of us would think Joe Budden wants that old thing back ex-girlfriend and bodacious model Tahiry he says he just wants closure. He dishes on just that during his recent interview with Rolling Out. He also talks joining the new cast of “Love And Hip Hop: New York” and how being on reality television has impacted his personal and professional life.
On his relationship with ex-girlfriend Tahiry:
“Closure would be nice,” Joe says of the ongoing push-pull with Tahiry. “But that’s a luxury at this point between her and I. Would I prefer it? Yes. Will it ever be? Who the f–k knows?”
On being labeled a ladies man:
“As much as it is communicated, I don’t view myself that way. It’s almost a joke when I hear it. To me, it’s as simple as, I’m attracted to women that a lot of other people seem to be attracted to as well. They’re all beautiful and amazing women — physically, at least. It doesn’t set me apart. But I’m very transparent with them. Maybe most other people are not. Maybe I live in a bubble, in that respect. But that pretty much is always what it is.”
The weather in New York City has been pretty brisk lately but it didn’t stop the cast of “Love & Hip Hop” from heading out to their season 3 premiere launch party. The same party Erica Mena and Rich Dollaz announced their engagement, even though, he’s gone on to deny it while she’s still insinuating they are engaged. But more of that dirt at a later date.
Also in attendance was new mom Yandy Smith, Joe Budden and girlfriend Kaylin Garcia, Tahiry Jose, Consequence, Jen the Pen, Raqi Thunda, Lore’l, Winter Ramos, and Rashidah Ali.
Rich Dollaz is engaged to ‘Love and Hip Hop’ co-star Erica Mena. Although Erica was introduced on season 2 of the hit reality show as the budding artist, she is now a fiancee to singer Olivia’s manager Rich Dollaz.
The two have denied dating in the past year although being spotted together on many occasions but it was Thursday night’s premiere party that they not only confirmed they’re together but they plan on getting married. And guess what? She doesn’t have a ring just yet. Hmmm….okay a proposal with no ring. Guess she’s not the first but that’s just tacky. But it get’s better. After confirming to multiple media outlets last night Rich is now denying he’s even engaged! Here’s what he told Global Grind.
“No, I’m not! I’m not engaged. Rich Dollaz is not engaged.
What happened was, I ain’t gonna say shorty was lying or nothin’ _______READMORE
