Cast of Love And Hip Hop Season 3 Confirmed

love and hip hop

By: Amanda Anderson-Niles

Love And Hip Hop Atlanta might still be on everyone’s minds ever since they were introduced to the crazy love triangle that is Stevie J., Mimi, and Joseline; but the show that started it all will be back for a third season and it’s rumored it might be able to go toe to toe with the Atlanta spin-off. For the last few months, speculation on who would be joining Season 3 of the show has been making its rounds on the gossip blogs. However, many felt like the show might have sealed its fate to failure after Chrissy Lampkin and Jim Jones confirmed that they would not be returning to the reality show, and instead decided to do their own spin-off about their upcoming nuptials. The couple even took former cast member Emily B. to join them.Well if the lineup that was just confirmed by the network is any indication, Season 3 of Love And Hip Hop Atlanta might be worth a watch.

VH1 just released an official statement on Season 3 of the show. Some of the people confirmed aren’t a shocker since rumors have been consistent  but we were shocked about who did not return. Apparently contrary to the rumors, Kimbella has been cut from the show. But the originals that have been confirmed for Season 3 are Yandy Smith, Erica Mena, and Olivia Longott. Interestingly enough, Olivia’s manager Rich Dollaz is back as well, but he’s dating co-star Erica Mena.

Now the newbies is where things might get interesting. Joe Budden has been confirmed for the show, which isn’t surprising because he’s been on a mission through Instagram to secure his spot by posting some pretty outrageous photos of him and his “girlfriend” during “intimate” moments for the last few months. Obviously it worked. They say Mona needed an answer to Stevie J. and Joe Budden will serve that purpose. Budden is known for his very public and outrageous love life, that usually ends in very public and outrageous break ups. And because Mona just loves drama, his ex Tahiry Jose has also been confirmed to be joining the cast. Both made headlines not too long ago for a messy breakup which resulted in Joe Budden using some pretty ridiculous rap lyrics to take shots at Tahiry post break up. No word if his current boo thang will make an appearance or not, but we wouldn’t be surprised if she did. Especially since she’s worked so hard being flexible and over the top with Budden to help him secure his spot on the show.

The rest of the newbies includes New York rapper Consequence (who recently went on a media rampage against Kanye West), radio personalities Raqi Thunda and Jen “The Pen” Bayer, Fabolous’ assistant Winter Ramos who is currently writing a tell all book, “shoe consultant” to the stars Rashidah Ali. Ali is currently working on her upcoming shoe line, Encore.

Love And Hip Hop Season 3 premieres Monday, January 7th at 8PM.

    Yo why did they cut Kimbella but keep Erica? Kimbella has a more interesting story. Oh well. I’m ready to see if this Budden guy can keep up with Stevie J. like everyone says he can.
