After 2 seasons on the show, Joe Budden has announced he will not be returning to the ratchetness that is ‘Love & Hip-Hop New York.’ Joe began his role on the show dating the then-unknown Kaylin Garcia, but their relationship quickly unraveled as he realized he was still in love with his ex Tahiry, who just so happened to be his co-star on the show as well. The next season focused on their relationship, though that eventually unraveled as well. No word on if Tahiry will return, but not skipping a beat – Mona Scott-Young has already found a new addition to the cast! Houston stripper Jhonni Blaze has been added to the lineup, with her story line fitting into the Dollaz Unlimited umbrella as she’s signed to Rich’s label…and notoriously has had beef with Erica Mena for some time. This should be nice and ratchet for us all!
