A Who's Who Guide to 'Love & Hip-Hop New York' Season 3
Atlanta has been the mecca of reality television in recent months (R&B Divas, The Houstons, Mary Mary, Love and Hip Hop), but soon all eyes will be back on the Big Apple.

Olivia Longott (pictured above): Last time we saw G-Unit's former first lady, she was struggling to find a label home. Even with the success of "December," the numbers just didn't match up, prompting conflict with manager and friend Rich Dollaz. This season, with friends Emily B. and Chrissy out of the picture, cameras will capture her relationship with basketball player Tarence Kinsey as well as ongoing music woes.
Rich Dollaz: It seems that he is officially dating model Erica Mena. Last season, she joined the cast and brought drama with Kimbella along with her. Cameras recently caught the new couple on a shopping trip, which I'm sure we'll get a closer look at in the coming months.
Yandy: Am I the only one that thought Yandy wouldn't be returning? Apparently, she will. And this season, we get to see Yandy raise her new son Omere with live in boyfriend Mandeecees.

The NY rapper and his radio personality girlfriend will show the challenges they face while raising their son Caiden as well as balancing their respective careers. Reality show junkies may recognize Jen from Dame Dash's Ultimate Hustler.
Joe Budden, Tahiry and Raqi Thunda (pictured above): Much like the "love" triangle between Stevie J, Joseline and Mimi, the controversial rapper will be the center of many a fight with former flame Tahiry and DJ Thunda, who some suspect Joe is spending time with. And oh, let's not forget about his current girlfriend Kaylin Garcia.
Winter (pictured on pg. 1): If you can remember, Fabolous' ex-assistant sat in on many convos with Emily B. last season. This time, the spotlight is on her as she allegedly works on a tell-all book. Interesting...
The new season begins Monday, January 7 at 8pm on VH1. Vixens, will you be tuned in??
