Last night’s episode of Love & Hip-Hop almost caused more ruckus than we could handle. From Kimbella and Erica Mena’s crazy fight to the absence of Sowmya Reece, the drama came in from every angle. In a exclusive interview with MommysDirtyLittleSecret, Somaya opens up about her career and next moves.

Quote Monster: Somaya on meeting Beyonce
“I recently met Beyonce while we were shopping for shoes and she said “Congratulations Somaya on your career and what you’ve accomplished I’m proud.”  Remember I told Olivia about Beyonce? Beyonce has everything she wants in life and did not have to even acknowledge my presence. Yet  she was so humble and took the time to talk to me and tell me she knew me from the show and congratulated me. Now that shows class, and that is how all artists should be. If you know you a bad b***** then you don’t have to hate on another artist. I nearly fainted at her humility! She has inspired me to go harder.”

Monica: Why don’t we see you as much on Love and Hip Hop this season?
Somaya: I was in the first few episodes. I have no idea what happened because I did have a lot of story to add yet I don’t see it on the show.  The fans made sure they bought me back! There was so much you didn’t see this season, my life is on fast forward right now with great stuff happening and they showed none of it.  Like what happens with Swift, the album, the developing friendship with Chrissy, my rap single Eh Mama, my re-negotiation with Barry, my family issues, the image development, my signing with the top talent agency in Hollywood that I got by myself? What happened to all of  that?

Monica: What is your relationship with the other girls from the show like now?
Somaya: Do not mistake what you see on TV to be real relationships! None of those girls reach out to me really. I like the girls regardless but truth is the ones that reach out off the show are: Mama Jones, Kimbella and Yandy once in a while. Emily now and then!

Monica: Speaking of music, what’s up with your music career? 
Somaya: They are covering everyone else’s music process and career development on Love and Hip Hop….interesting! After I signed with my investor I made a mix tape series called “Rebel with a cause” drops in Jan 2012.  Each tape has future album cuts on it!  They didn’t show my team. Grammy award producer Richy Pena and a Denver team KMG.  I just signed with Rebel entertainment partners who also rep Mario Lopez, Eva Longoria and the list goes on! I have evolved so much since season 1… But fans didn’t get to see any of it!
