People who have followed “Love & Hip Hop” since the first season on VH1 have been taken aback by the third season of the show. Following the second season, most of the cast left the show, leaving Yandy Smith, Olivia, and Erica Mena from the original cast. Among the additions included Tahiry Jose, Joe Budden, Consequence, Jen The Pen, and Kaylin Garcia.
Even though the season had plenty of eye candy with a lot of emphasis being put on the curves of Yandy, Tahiry, Kaylin, Lore’l, and Erica, fans were disappointed. Newcomers to the show may have not noticed any changes. Mona Scott-Young, the creator of the show, however did notice some changes.
In response to this, rumor has it Mona Scott-Young has fired Raqi Thunda, Consequence, Jen The Pen, Winter Ramos, Lore’l, and Kaylin Garcia. On the other hand, Joe Budden, Tahiry Jose, Erica Mena, Yandy Smith, Rich Dollaz, and Olivia were asked to return. No word has been delivered on Rashidah Ali.
