Peter Gunz Struggles To Keep His Secret, Saigon’s Baby Mama Drama On ‘Love & Hip-Hop’
On this week’s episode of Love & Hip-Hop (New York), Peter Gunz struggles to keep his secret marriage under wraps, as Yandy’s idea to invite both his wife Amina Buddafly and baby mama Tara to a party damn-near explodes right in front of his face. In addition, rapper Saigon is added to the mix, as he begins to question the paternity of his son due to growing whispers that his baby mama was sleeping with another man. In case you missed it, check out all that went down with XXL’s weekly roundup.
Mommy’s Baby, Daddy’s Maybe - Saigon joins the cast this week, as he attempts to rekindle his relationship with his baby mama, Erica Jean. The only problem is that he begins to question the paternity of his son, who many say doesn’t look like him, not to mention she had the baby and didn’t tell him when she gave birth. Surprisingly, the person to convince him to actually go through with the DNA test is Peter Gunz, who should be the last person to give relationship advice. When Saigon confronts Erica about his doubts of paternity, she expectedly flips out. From the looks of it, she looks guilty as charged. Where’s Maury when you need him?
Welcome to New York - Former LHHATL cast member, K. Michelle is greeted by Yandy, who decides to throw her a “Welcome to New York” party at The Griffin to introduce her to some of the ladies of the cast, including Peter Gunz ladies, Tara and Amina. When Rich tells Yandy the 411 on Peter’s love triangle, Yandy is floored, and even more so nervous to keep such a huge secret from Tara, who is her friend. Wonder if she’ll still want to do business with Amina, knowing the collateral damage involved.
‘You’re a Cornball’ - The funniest part of the entire episode had to be Rich Dollaz being called a “cornball” by Nya, a stripper-turned-rapper who happens to be an acquaintance of Erica Mena. When Rich swooped in on Nya’s photoshoot to get her to take him on as her manager, he’s not exactly welcomed with open arms. To Rich’s surprise, Nya was not impressed and calls him out on his bad reputation and notoriety for sleeping with his clients. To say the least, Rich got in his feelings once Nya called him out his name. It was like watching two females go at it, but then again, that’s nothing new.
Like Father, Like Son - Peter meets up with his son, rapper Cory Gunz, at the studio, where they talk about Cory’s upcoming prison sentence for gun possession, the very same offense Peter had when he was the same age. Peter begins to blame himself for setting a bad example and not being a good role model. Cory tells him he can’t beat himself up, and that he wouldn’t be who he is without him; including his music career. But the father-son talk comes to a screeching halt when Peter gets a call from Rich that Amina and Tara are going to be at K. Michelle’s party.
Peter’s Web of Lies - Peter ends up meeting up with Tara and Amina separately, where he spins his web of lies to each of them to make them feel like they are the apple of his eye. Peter gives Tara a spoon full of BS during dinner, where he asks her to promise to never leave him. After Amina revealed to Rich that she and Peter were married on the last episode, Peter met up with her to express his anger with her. “I gave her five rules,” he says, one of which was to not reveal their marital status. But now that the cat is out the bag, Peter worries that Amina will go on a rampage and spill the beans to Tara at the Welcome to New York party. Peter rushes to The Griffin just in time to stop Amina from going inside. Amina spazzes out in tears when she finds out that Peter didn’t show up to walk arm in arm with her, but to actually make sure that she wouldn’t run her mouth. Tired of feeling like the side chick, Amina walks off. “I’m tired of you telling me what to do...your word means nothing,” she says. Just when it looked like things were about to pop off, Peter used his charm to convince Amina to go home by promising her that he would tell Tara the truth the next day.
