Chrissy Crastanda- is a NYC socialite and owner of a modeling agency. She is ready to start a family with her boyfriend Chink but his other commitments and delayed divorce are putting her wishes on hold.

 

Cisco Rosado- is a well-known producer who has worked with Tank, Jim Jones and Uncle Murder. His “don’t ask, don’t tell” relationship with his girlfriend Diamond Strawberry takes a turn for the worst when she decides to move to NY to be closer to him and later finds out he has been dishonest.

 

Diamond Strawberry- daughter of New York Mets outfielder Daryl Strawberry, Diamond has moved to NY from L.A. to start her career as a model and build her relationship with her boyfriend Cisco but her decision backfires when she finds out her boyfriend has betrayed her.

 

Precious Paris- formerly signed to 50 cent’s label G-UNIT, recently signed a management deal with Dollaz Unlimited. But when another artist is added to her manager’s roster, she is disappointed to find out that she may be sharing her spotlight.

Season 5 extended trailer:  http://youtu.be/lWeRwgJeomM

 

I'm one of very few I know, but I'm looking forward to this.  Atlanta is the powerhouse, Hollywood was wack, but New York does it's own thing.

If Tara takes Peter back she is a bigger fool than I thought.  No Tahiry and Joe.  The extended preview goes from showing Erica Mena and Cyn together to her being engaged to Bow Wow.

And we're back to the over styling intros! I always walk in a room I slow motion. Don't you?

Glad to see ManiPedi back out on the streets and making moves to marry Yandy so she can't testify against him. I see you son. Well played.

Still don't care about Erica and whoever she's with. Chipotle girl this week. Bow Wow next. Whatever. Peter is going to have 8 kids now? Only Michelle Duggar would be impressed w that shit.

That kiss between Erica and Cyn in the first scene further cemented my theory that they're pretending to be lesbians for the camera.  No passion whatsoever.  I'm a straight male with no life.  I need them to give me energy when they kiss.

Well ... Shit.

I DVR'd it and was getting ready to watch it but decided to check with you guys first (I do that often just to see if there's anything I should look out for, etc)

As soon as I got to the forum and saw the number of posts ... I knew this would be bad.

Dammit Mona!

And we're back to the over styling intros! I always walk in a room I slow motion. Don't you?

Yes. Usually to the soundtrack of some asshole (Mona Scott Young) ominously narrating some bullshit. Why do you ask? ;-)

Lol. I think it's Mena's man-hands that are throwing you off.

And now I've watched this shitshow.

The blonde chick with Chink who was super turned up about Mena? Bye. You're too old to be this turned up over ... Anything. Seriously. Like Nikki's mom on the Hollywood installment - go have a cup of tea and shut the fuck up. I see you.

Mena is still beautiful, but holy shit she needs work on those hands. A manicure & some tips would help to elongate her fingers.

Yandy "squawk squawk" (just in case she's reading this, I wanted her to know what I'm saying about her). The romantic fairy tale you're trying to portray with ManFeces is bullshit. You know it. He knows it. Coming home parties for a mother fucker out on BAIL facing 20 years? Bitch, bye - you disappoint me the most because you had the most potential and threw it away to be a bird.

Peter. Peter. Peter. A woman pregnant with HER first child does not want to hear about how you plan to just basically throw this one into the pile with the others.

She knows the other kids exist but wants HER 1st child and HER pregnancy to be special (I know the fact that she's having this baby with an idiot with 7 kids ALREADY makes it a moot point).

Lisp: "it's a girl. I know you wanted a boy. Are you ok with that?"

Panky: "yeah. Boy. Girl. Whatever. I've got a few of both. As long as it's healthy it doesn't matter to me"

Tara glad to see you've used your check from last season to move your boys above ground.

Peter is going to leave Lisp once she's no longer the carefree childless woman she is now. The same shit he complained about is the same shit he's created AGAIN. Another mouth to feed attached to another woman nagging him about how it's going to get fed.

Daryl Strawberry's dumb daughter and Mr Don't Ask Don't Tell - I'm actually looking forward to watching this one unfold. I'm pissed that she left her daughter behind to go chase dick (excuse me "her modeling career") but in a way I'm glad she had the presence of mind to leave her in a stable environment.

Here's the thing, ladies. Never chase a man. I don't mean play hard to get or impossible to get or whatever. I mean let that man come to you or at the very least SEND for you.

If she was moving to NY because HE was asking her to, that would be one thing. But this bird is forcing herself into his world. He's obviously not that into you. You're his west coast pussy. Nothing more. I will be watching.

I know! I just started watching this crap Sunday because I was sick and there was a marathon. Tara looked so much better before.

 

And Mrs Smarty Pants, I subscribe to everything you said, especially about Yandy. And did you guys see the previews for next week? The blonde chick with Chink looks even older than ever!

So I wasn't hallucinating? This dumb bitch really left her kid behind with her grandma so she could demand a commitment from her boyfriend? Gawd. I hate all these birds. Not that this show is a bastion for entertainment industry couples or anything but at least OG Chrissy and Jim, Fab and Emily, and Kimbella and Juelz were actual couples for the most part. Now the show is all about random hoes that are "models" and want to hook up their "music careers". The only likable one is Rich Dollaz? Mona, get it together.

Diamond is a mess. She is going to model for one of those tits and ass magazines clearly and she needs to get her boob job done if she had one because her jugs are hanging in a way that is just wrong for someone so young. Plus, she is not cute at all. She is no Lupita or Mena (sorry to put them in the same sentence) or Cynthia Bailey (face-wise). Check out this slide show of hideous images.

 

http://hiphopwired.com/2014/12/16/bangin-candy-darryl-strawberrys-model-daughter-diamond-strawberry-photos/12/

 

Plus, she is just setting the worst example ever for her daughter. Why is that guy even messing around with her? She seems way too young for him. Another fake relationship?

I heard Diamond was the cousin of Shirley Strawberry. One of the co-hosts on Steve Harvey's radio show. I wonder if she's going to claim this fool child. I think a family meeting is in order.

Why do these birds keep getting knocked up by Ghetto Gazoo?

 

Cyn  should be credited as Chipotle in the new opening.

 

Am I the only one, that cackled, when Cisco listed his NON RELEVANT clients? 

 

Manfeces sons are adorable, who stole Yandy's edges? 

 

GLASS Strawberry really  moving cross country, for a non-relationship with that Glow Worm looking ninja? 

 

Rich gives me Keith from Good Times teas.

 

Chrissy reminds  of HBO's Hookers at the Point.

You guys always have the best responses/comments. I love coming on here just to read what you guys think. I do watch the show(s), but am late with them. Heck. I enjoy watching trainwrecks since my life is pretty bland. I watch, probably, too many reality tv shows. Keep it coming.

 

OneSane. I have no idea either who this Chrissy person is. All I know from what said on the show was she was supposedly a "madam" and now has a "modeling" agency. Think not. One doesn't change their stripes that quickly. Me thinks her "modeling" agency is an escort business. Not there is anything wrong with that, but this Chrissy person is fugly. She looks to be about 50+, bitch has no reason to be hating on someone like Erica just because she's prettier and probably more successful than you. Girl move on please.

If Diamond left her daughter behind to attend school, join the military--or even travel abroad, I wouldn't be mad at her, because it will benefit them eventually----but to run behind a Mali Mall lookalike? Nah. I ain't going to feel bad when he makes a fool out of her.

 

That being said, I can't believe I'm back for another round of this foolishness; out of the three L&HH franchise, I like NY the least (which is unfortunate because I LOVE the NYC). ATL and Hollywood may have their share of birds and idiots, but at least they were entertaining--even likeable. I can't say the same for NY.  The only person I truly like on the show is Mendeces. Although his past is shaky, from what I've seen on the show, his love for Yandy and his children is genuine, and I truly enjoy seeing them together (and I like Yandy as well). Otherwise, I can't with the other folks.

I want to slap Diamond..seriously. I hate stupid broads--and now next week, we find out that Cisco was being a hypocrite.

Chrissy is how old? 45?  Too old to be acting like a bird.

Cyn, cut your losses with Erica; you deserve so much better.

Peter is still disgusting, and Amina and Tara are still foosl. That scene with Amina walking up on Pete and Tara was totally scripted, though.

Sometimes my ears blink and I hear shit that isn't really there. Did That Diamond chick really say "I'm tired of fucking in cars, can't we fuck in a bed?" Did she really say that shit? Out loud? Where does Mona find these people?

I'm no relationship expert but if you have to tell a man that your child is a DOG, he dumps your ass at a random apartment when you visit, won't tell you where he lives and the only time he sees you is to bust a quick nut in the backseat of a ZipCar that ain't ya man.

I'm over these fake club scenes with randoms bopping in one place to music that ain't playing. It just looks damn dumb.

WHAT is wrong with Diamond? Is she just chronically stupid? Leaning over a table, finger waving all over the place saying "I have a daughter I never told you about, I want you to meet her, and we're gonna be a big happy family?" This girl is scary. She makes Hazel's delusional ass look like she has her shit together. If you have to hide your kid, move 3000 miles away, and have never seen your own boyfriend's house...I don't know about the ho hierarchy, but if you're under "Side Chick" you might need to reevaluate life.

Fake ass party filled up with extra dancing in a club with no music probably.

 

Glass Strawberry doing what she thinks women on this show should be doing with all the posturing and mannerism.

 

The fake ass wedding that wasn't with Yandy and diseasses.

 

Someone is a stiletto expert.

 

This fake ass lesbian romance.

 

I can't take the fakery or the fuckery going on in this show.

 

I also never want to hear Cyn say the name Erica again. It's like she just discovered the name or just learned how to speak.

Motherfucking words to live by.  I had to rewind to be sure that I heard she told her "man" of 2 years that the dog he always heard her talking to was actually a "human child".  The fuck!  Then, having the nerve to get in his face and tell him that all 3 of them are going to be a family?  What the fuck is wrong with this trick?

 

I don't know why, but I'm loving the girl who says she was allegedly a madam, but in the next few breath she's yelling that the other girl used to work for her as an escort.  Lol!  Guess she doesn't understand the use of the term allegedly.

 

I tried to stay out, but I couldn't resist.  You guys pulled me back in!  I need to figure out how to include LAHH into my dissertation.

That chick Chrissy scares the bejesus out of me. The affected speech and mannerisms, harsh tattoos, sloppy Hulk-ish body, and the fact she looks 50 plus makes me recoil whenever she's on screen. And she rushed Mena like a damn brahma bull.

 

And speaking of Mena, she's batshit crazy but gorgeous and so entertaining to watch.

 

Sometimes I think Yandy is attractive, other times I think she looks like a human goldfish. The scene of her exiting the wedding chapel in that flouncy dress made me yell "goddamn, does she have elephantiasis?!" And those cheap white shoes were just a no.

 

Darryl Strawberry, COME GET YOUR CHILD. At first I thought she was acting, but those confused faces she pulls make me realize baby girl is slow and perhaps developmentally challenged. There's no way in HELL you been building something with a dude, but ya'll still fucking in a car.

 

Lisp and Tara may as well do it Big Love style with Panky. I'm sure he'd love it, but find a way to fail at that, too.

LOL fake is right. No way would Yandy let that man who she loves so much get to the part in the ceremony where he says "I Do" and she says "I cant". NO WAY! She would have shut it down before that otherwise Min would have been pissed. It was so fake that the chapel didn't even bother having a "witness" standing off to the side. I wish Production would stay out of it and let things flow naturally because you are not fooling us!

ARR-ICK-UHH

 

I wouldn't have noticed her saying the name over and over again if it wasn't for how annoyingly she said it.

 

This is my first time watching the NY people.   I’m not as entertained so far by the ratchetness of it all, but I’m entertained enough.  From the very first scene I was not buying this relationship between ARR-ICK-UHH and Cyn.  Do these people even try to act?  On the flip side, there's Diamond, who put wayyy too much into her scenes with East Coast Mally Mal.  One big happy family. LOL! 

 

Mandeecees is he most boring person to me so far.  He reads his cue cards so unenthusiastically.

Tara is so beautiful to me. I do not like the longer hair on her - like she could rock a pixie cut and be fire.

 

I used to love the NY franchise, but it's become something that is so corny. Chrissy 2.0 is so damn annoying. She swears she did something to Erica even though Erica clearly fell backwards because of her heels, not because Chrissy made any real impact.

 

I know Darryl Strawberry has/had his issues, but I bet he's not happy about what Diamond is doing. She's a mess. She's dating a man who doesn't know about her child, she moved across the country to live in Cisco's friend's apartment, and he doesn't want to commit to her. Lawd, give her some self-esteem.

I totally agree about Tara. During the reunion she was so chic with her pixie cut and blue leather dress. I was totally coveting the hair cut even though I know it would not suit me. But if it would, I would have skyrocketed myself and a picture of it to my hair stylist.

I feel really bad for Amina. I was actually yelling at my tv screen at the treatment she allows that miserable husband to bestow on her. I am so annoyed that I can't remember his name at the moment. If I was her family, I would stage an intervention to get her away from that louse and take her somewhere she could have her baby in peace away from the BS.

As fake as this show can feel. Amina asking why Tara wont just take him back breaks my heart. That's as genuine as anything you will see in this show. All this shit Peter keeps putting through is all real for her. I just people would leave these situations before they get children involved. No child deserves to have Peter Gunz messy ass for a dad.

I don't know when it happened, but this probable felon has grown on me! He just seems like that 'round the way dude with a good heart, who wants to hold it down for his woman and fam. And when Yandy asked him when he thought up the Vegas wedding idea -- he replies with what every girl wants to hear: "I was thinking about it the whole time I was IN JAIL." (SWOON)

 

And Mona, I don't watch to see these fools try to work through their abandonment, rough childhood, personal issues! What's his name - Casper? Cisco? - saying his Moms was the first woman to break his heart. This 'aint Dr. Phil.  I want ratchet and ridiculous soap opera messiness.

 

Poor Lisp. Seems she really is in love with that mitch Panky. And Tara still admits she has unresolved feelings for him . His dick game must be beyond phenomenal. That, coupled with the fact he only finds wounded, vulnerable women to run game on.

 

Cyn looked geniunely shocked when Mena popped her in the face. (is this a real relationship?)

 

Thank goodness Chrissy wasn't hulking around in this episode.

I don't mind Mendeecees either.

Are we going to have a "Very Special Episode" about domestic violence thanks to Erica and Cyn? That would be different. I mean, Toddler Boy was fired from the Hollywood version for smacking Malika around, so will we see parity here? I doubt it 'cuz Mona seems to like seeing bitches fight, and probably doesn't realize/care that it's a similar situation even if most of the relationships are fake as fuck.

Unfortunately as much as I feel bad & want to like Amina, she has got to be the dumbest chicken on TV I've seen in a long time. I have never met a wife who is still LITERALLY a side piece LOL & I really don't get it - I have no clue why 2 decent women are fighting over such a wash-up man. When I see scenes with him it literally makes my blood boil!!

I don't feel sorry for her as she knew what she was getting into. I feel sorry for all his kids that he has all over the place. As far as Amina & Tara go, they need to gain some self respect & stop putting up with a man that plays doesn't put them 1st. They've seen last season & they both choose to give him free passes. Tara is just plain dumb. She waited 13 yrs, had 2 kids & Peter marries & impregnates another woman & she's going to go on vacation with him. You can be civil for the kids but you don't have to hang out. 

I know this is scripted & not real but Cyn is a terrible actress. She is almost smiling & laughing during her scenes. I never bought that she was in a real relationship either. It's all for show. At least Erica is a better actress & can produce a tear every now & then. Erica really needs to start wear a bra, those girls are almost downs to her belly. 

 

Tara won't let Amina meet her sons. I get that she considers Amina a homewrecker, when that was Peter's doing. But, the kids will be siblings & I know I would want to see how my exes new girl was with them so I could trust her around them. I get that Tara doesn't wan them to meet so that Peter has to keep coming over there. If Peter really wanted his boys more he could go to court & get joint custody. I don't buy that Tara was really trying to help Amina either. She wanted to rub it in Amina's face & tell her again "that's my family". I don't get why these women want him, he's not attractive, rich or even funny. They could & should do much better than him.

They lay there like doormats & wonder why he steps all over them.
