The key to a successful marriage is having a “solid friendship,” Love & Hip Hop Hollywood stars Willie Taylor and Shanda revealed in a candid sit-down. The reality TV couple have been married for eight years and together for 13…we think they know a thing or two about making it work. “We keep God first and we communicate,” they added.

Willie says he and Shanda’s drive to make it is what intrigued LHHH producers. “We got scouted for Love & Hip Hop cause I think they were interested in our story from us moving to Chicago to LA.”

Making a marriage work is complicated enough without the world watching. However, Willie and Shanda says “exposing” her life was the hardest part.

As for their story line, Shanda says she doesn’t just want to go back to being a stripper, but is a provider and will do what is necessary to support her family.

Watch the two chat about it, above.
