Wish List: 4 Things We Hope To See On "Love & Hip Hop 2"

We've seen the trailer, we've peeped the official promo pics and now we wait. On November 14 at 9PM, the Twitterverse will be abuzz over the VH1 series premiere but there are already preconceived notions of what this second season will be. Whatever the outcome, here's VV's wish list of the four things we want to see and hope the women can accomplish.

Chrissy Lampkin will dump Jim Jones.

Chrissy proposed to the man and still hasn't walked down the aisle. Doesn't that seem a bit strange? Let it go! You (and Tiny) may be the epitome of "ride or die," but at a certain point you have to be solely focused on your heart health. As a woman who's been there for this man through everything, either he is or isn't going to make the ultimate move... And he hasn't. Period. Is there hope for these two? It doesn't really seem like it.

Fabolous will get his act together and win Emily B back.

We have the softest spot for stylist Emily B. It was painful to see her relationship to Fab be exposed to bluntly on the show last season, but this time around, she's chucking the deuces. Will it be tough? Sure. However, we're wishing (and secretly, you are too!) that Fabolous swoops in and puts the ring on it. Contrary to Chrissy's situation, Emily had the courage to bounce, and that deserves respect at the highest. And, truthfully, some men just need to know what they're missing, so can Fab get a rude awakening? The only thing that gives us pause: Is a cheater always a cheater?

Olivia and Somaya will finally get their big breaks.

This may be the realest peek into the struggles of up-and-comers in the game. In Olivia's case, she was hot, then she wasn't. Her "December" record created a nice buzz, then that was gone, too. Okay... someone please give her break. The girl can sing! Hopefully we see the record label heavens open for Maino's girl and we get a hit by the end of the season. As for Somaya, she's not the most talented artist, but she grinds. Who else you know can sleep in an attic, get ripped about by a pack of wolves and still hold her own? Yeah... Someone ink her a deal.

Kimbella and Yandy will set Erica Mena straight.

Where did Erica Mena come from? Seriously. In the trailer, this hoe young lady pops off to Kimbella about her baby's father, Juelz Santana. Yeah, that's the messy behavior that's checked and handled on sight. Since Yandy is Kimbella's right hand, it's only right that both women step in and get the job done. Now, we're not saying Kimbella and Yandy should knock off Erica mafia-style, but a chick that opens her mouth sideways should be silenced.

Whitney Houston's Close Friend Robyn Crawford Details Romantic Relationship In New Memoir

Whitney Houston's personal life has been explored ten times over since her untimely passing in 2012 but one of her closest friends wants to share with the world the Whitney she knew and ultimately fell in love with.

In excerpts to People Wednesday (Nov. 6), Robyn Crawford presents a strong bond between the two in her new memoir, A Song For You: My Life With Whitney Houston. The singer and Crawford met in their youth while working at a summer camp in East Orange, New Jersey. From there, their friendship blossomed into something more romantic. With homophobia running rampant in the 80s, Crawford says they never looked at labels but enjoyed the experiences they shared together.

“We never talked about labels, like lesbian or gay,” writes Crawford. “We just lived our lives and I hoped it could go on that way forever.”

As their journey continued, Whitney's star began to rise which put allegedly put their romance on ice. “She said we shouldn’t be physical anymore,” writes Crawford. "Because it would make our journey even more difficult. She said if people find out about us, they would use this against us....and back in the ’80s, that’s how it felt. I kept it safe. I found comfort in my silence.”

Whitney's relationship with Crawford was mentioned in the 2018 documentary Whitney. Created by the singer's estate, the film focused on the singer's legacy and didn't include first-hand accounts from Crawford. Family members were weary of their special friendship.

"I’ve never seen them do anything but I know that she was something that I didn’t want my sister to be involved with," Whitney's brother Gary stated in the documentary.

But Crawford is finally ready to tell her own story while "lifting" Houston's legacy.

“I wanted to lift her legacy, give her respect and share the story of who she was before the fame, and in that, to embrace our friendship,” she tells People. "I'd come to the point where I felt the need to stand up for our friendship. And I felt an urgency to stand up and share the woman behind the incredible talent."

A Song for You: My Life with Whitney Houston is expected to hit bookshelves this fall.
