The landlord, Angela Newman, felt she had no choice but to contact WERG for help.

NEW YORK — Here’s proof that no good deed goes unpunished.

Angela Newman offered to let a woman named Taylor Pickney, also known as Donna Lombardi, stay in her Yonkers apartment for three weeks while she looked for a place of her own, according to WPIX.

That was more than a year ago. Pickney didn’t leave, didn’t pay any rent and even brought her boyfriend in to live with her.

It’s not like Pickney is broke. She’s actually a regular on the VH1 show “Black Ink Crew” about the goings on at a tattoo parlor in Harlem. On the show she uses the name Donna Lombardi.

Anyway, Lombardi, Pickney whatever name you choose, refused to get out. So Angela went to court. She got an order forcing Pickney out. That didn’t seem to have much impact so she contacted WPIX.

Howard tried to track down Donna at the Black Ink shops, and ended up in a hilarious FaceTime call with Ceaser.

  1. That goes to show you that you can’t believe everything you see on these reality shows. These reality stars be out here fronting like they are making bank but they are nowhere close to that. This explains why she’s always fighting somebody on the show. She’s clearly trying to get a promotion.

    1. I think Dutchess already spilled the tea. They stage a lot on the show and rent homes and condos so they can look like they have money. They even said on this video that 113th was actually closed. I’m starting to think the shop we see them in is just for the show.

      1. You might be right i passed through there once and it looks like it was under construction but it could be that they revamped the shop. like i see they did this season but it seems like they don’t really work there

  2. Donna ain’t nothing but a bum like I know rent is high in NY but bish you can’t even afford a studio apartment like come on now that is crazy. To make matters worse you on a popular reality tv show so now we know for sure vh1 paying you pennies how embarrassing.

  3. i actually live on 111 and lenox and no the shop is never opened i think they only use it for filming and when they are open for filming they charge insane amounts for tatoos thats why they have no local customers coming in so the only money they do get is from vh1 sad they act a fool and be broke a hot mess
