This season of “Love & Hip Hop: New York” introduced fans to a new love triangle, and it was surprising equal, if not more, juicy than the Steve J-Mimi-Joseline situation from the Atlanta cast.
In typical Mona Scott-Young fashion, she was able to recreate reality TV gold and tell a new story of a producer who cheats on his main lady with an “artist” in the studio.
(Just in case you’ve been out of the loop, producer Peter Gunz is like ATL’s Stevie J. He was living with his girlfriend Tara and their two young boys, but he went behind his family’s back and married his mistress/side chick/artist Amina Buddafly.)
MiMi Faust, who was the at the center of the drama in previous seasons, recently told The Jasmine Brand that she could feel Tara’s pain.
“Like really Peter, you’re gonna do that?” MiMi questioned. “I know it’s a little bit like my situation but that goes on everyday in every state. It’s not just me and him [Stevie], Peter doing what he’s doing. It is very entertaining, my heart goes out to Tara, I feel your pain.”
“It’s insane. It’s very entertaining, I cannot lie,” she added. “Every Monday, I’m like, ‘What the f**k are they about to do next.”
In addition to sympathizing with Tara, MiMi said she plans to pen her first book in the new year.
“It will be about dating a man in the industry,” she revealed. “It will also have short stories from different women. It won’t be about just me, I will incorporate other people I know. All stories of other women that have had similar experiences in their life too.”

1. Amina Buddafly, K. Michelle, Tahiry, Yandy, Erica Mena, Nya Lee, Tara Williams
Mona Scott-Young has done it again. She scoured the Big Apple and found the most ratchet and entertainment love stories to build this season of "Love & Hip Hop" New York 's script. Let's take a look at the most promising moments from this forthcoming season!
2. Peter Gunz Is The New Stevie J (Or Wants To Be)
You remember Peter Gunz right? One half of the hip-hop duo that brought us "Deja Vu (Uptown Baby)." The old school rapper brings his love triangle to the new season of "Love & Hip Hop" and we must warn you, Peter comes from the Stevie J school of dating. We witness Gunz beg his baby's mother Tara to never leave him then propose to his side chick, Amina Buddafly (who is also his artist), the very next minute.
3. Tara Wallace Vs Amina Buddafly
The moment Tara Wallace cocks back and slaps Amina Buddafly in the face will be a vicarious moment for all women who have been cheated on. Peter Gunz' baby's mother and his side chick fiance come face-to-face and it's going to be a brawl for the ages! Pay attention Mimi!
4. Tahiry & Joe Budden Give Love Another Try
Last season of "Love & Hip Hop" NY ended with Tahiry and Joe Budden trying to rebuild their relationship, but not before we witnessed how untrustworthy and irrational "Joey" could be. We're anxious to see how their relationship pans out but after watching the the super trailer, we're not sure they're going to make it.
5. An Update On Mendeeces
We were left in the dark about Yandy's fiance, Mendeeces, court status after he was arrested for drug charges related to a former operation. It turns out, Yandy was just as clueless as us! This season will give us some insight into what Yandy and Mendeeces are dealing with.
6. K. Michelle Comes To New York
K. Michelle was one of our favorite characters on "Love & Hip Hop Atlanta." her sarcastic wit and "try me" attitude made her a stand-out amongst the rest. The buxom beauty packed her bags and headed to NY to pursue her career but didn't leave behind her fiery spirit. we can't wait to see how she and Erica Mena get along!
7. Erica Mena & Rich Dollaz Love Rekindled
Erica Mena reveals, on this season, that she is in a lesbian relationship with another woman equally as hot. However, Mena isn't over Rich and wines up in his lap!
8. New Love Story
Saigon and his baby's mother are getting to know each other (backwards, we know) but things aren't going smoothly between the rapper and his love. The two get into a dramatic beef and Sai (don't mind if I call him that) is whisked away by police. Hmm...
9. Eye Candy
Erica Mena's lesbian boo is packing curves!
10. Erica Mena's Mouth
As ratchet as Erica Mena is, she's freaking entertaining. Mena still has aspirations to become the next R&B superstar even if she sounds like a "goat" (so says K. Michelle). Mena will stop at nothing to reach her dreams and while its admirable, it's hard to root for her when she's throwing plates across the room (we'll give her a pass though cause it was at Peter Gunz and he deserves it).
