Where Are They Now: Former Love & Hip Hop Stars

What ever happened to Che Mack tho?

People appear on Love & Hip Hop, show us the intimate details of their lives, and then disappear. From Joe Budden and Tahiry, to O’Shea and Erica Dixon, these familiar faces may not appear on our TV screens right now but that doesn’t mean we aren’t wondering where they ended up. Fear not, we’ve gotchu covered. Check out some of your former favorites now and see how they’re living!

  • 1 Joe Budden
    Mr. Budden has been busy since he last graced our screens on Love & Hip Hop. His new album with aarabMUZIK is called “Rage & The Machine” and is set to release in October–this comes shortly after a whirlwind of limelight for getting in a beef with Drake and releasing multiple diss tracks about the Canadian rapper.

    He seems to have “settled down” for the moment with model and fellow former LHH star Cyn Santana.

  • 2 Cyn Santana
    As we just mentioned, Cyn is happily in love with rapper boo Joe Budden.

    Beside that, of course she is still keeping up with her modeling. She also owns a clothing line called NU By Cyn Santana, which features many different form-fitting styles that you see Cyn herself often adorned in.

  • 3 BBOD
    BBOD, a.k.a. Sexxy Lexxy and Ms. Moe Money, are still hustling and making music. Their newest EP, “Reality Check” is out in November 2016.

  • 4 Omarion
    After breaking everyone’s hearts and splitting with long-time girlfriend and baby mama Apryl Jones, Omarion continues to make music and post dancing videos on Instagram.

    His latest smash single “Post To Be” was certified platinum by the RIAA and he’s constantly posting pictures with his extremely adorable kids. He was also recently featured in GQ with his braid hairdo that only O can perfectly pull off. The world shook when him and Apryl announced they were no longer together, but they still seem to be a happy family, getting together for Megaa & A’mei’s birthday parties and other events.

  • 5 Apryl Jones
    Since popping out another beautiful child less than a year ago, Apryl already has her bangin’ body back and is proudly showing it off.

    Since amicably ending it with Omarion, Apryl has been keeping herself busy with hosting parties making us swoon posting pictures with Megaa and A’mei.

  • 6 Tahiry Jose
    As all my nail polish connoisseurs already knew, Tahiry just recently launched her own Color Club heat index collection this summer.

    You can pick from a plethora of polishes that change color depending on the temperature outside and your body heat….necessary? probably not. Do I want to own every single color? ABSOLUTELY.

  • 7 Kaylin Garcia
    Since leaving Love & Hip Hop, Kaylin since appeared on Couples Therapy with then boyfriend Joe Budden and worked on getting herself out of a “depressive state” she slipped into after having a tough time with being on reality TV.

    Since splitting with Budden, she has been expressing her more artistic side, posting some super impressive paintings on her KayzHeART Instagram page.

  • 8 Hazel-E
    Hazel-E was never subtle about her reasons for leaving the show, yet she can’t seem to escape being involved with drama among current cast members.

    The feud between Hazel and Masika Kalysha continued into the latest season of Love & Hip Hop Hollywood when Hazel made a surprise return and alleged that Fetty Wap was not the father of Masika’s daughter, Khari. Shortly after that, Hazel released a single with Fetty Wap, which provided additional fodder for their beef.

  • 9 Morgan Hardman
    Since we last saw Morgan on the show, things seem to have calmed down for Ray J’s former assistant after her departure.

    She did reveal in an interview with Vlad TV that during the filming of Love & Hip Hop, she was actually almost 3 months pregnant–which nobody was aware of–though she unfortunately experienced a miscarriage shortly after.

  • 10 Lore’l
    It’s been a while since Lore’l has graced our TV screens, but luckily for us she’s not too far out of the spotlight.

    You can listen to Lore’l guest hosting on a podcast with Angela Yee and other friends called, “Lip Service” every week to hear her dish.

  • 11 Chrissy Monroe
    Ms. Monroe has been busy since her last appearance on the show.

    The reality star was the first female “Comeback Queen” to be involved in the show Come Back Kings with other names like Black Rob and Treach from Naughty By Nature. She also launched her own cosmetics line, called Pretty Girl Gang Cosmetics, specializing in products like mascara and lip gloss.

  • 12 Erica Dixon
    Atlanta has been a little less lively without Erica there, though she’s still been in on her share of the drama since her departure. As you all know, her former fiancĂ©e Scrappy is now engaged to longtime girlfriend Bambi, a subject on which Erica was not quiet: saying Scrappy was trying to get back together with her weeks before the engagement.

    She has also been keeping up with her Pretty Girls Rock events as well as speaking at schools and hosting different events.

  • 13 Raqi Thunda
    Raqi is doing well for herself since her time on the show, broadening her horizons with different types of career endeavors.

    Most notably, she announced on her Twitter page that she’s going to be coming out with her own podcast, “The Mental Phuck,” supposedly dropping in November.

  • 14 Nastassia Smith
    Nas was known for being one of the most dramatic Love & Hip Hop cast members ever, but since then, it’s looking like she’s slowed down a little bit.

    She just dropped a song on her Soundcloud page a few months ago titled, “Ms.MeToo.” Beside that, there has been less drama and more positivity across her social media pages as she lays low for a little while.

  • 15 Emily Bustamante
    As usual, Emily is still on her stylish hustle in life after the show, along with her super cuuuute model kids Johan and Jonas and now 18 year old Taina.

    She recently styled a cover shoot with French Montana for XXL and her and Fabolous continue to post pictures that make the rest of us feel bad about our lives because of how amazing theirs seem.

  • 16 Mama Jones
    Good ol’ Mama Jones apparently wasn’t ready to leave the world of television just yet.

    Her son Jim Jones and his girl Chrissy Lampkin have a new show on WeTV, “Vow or Never,” and surprise, surprise…Mama Jones is a part of it. She’s also promoting a new cologne she has coming out, called TouchĂ©.

  • 18 O’Shea Russell
    Oshea and Erica Dixon have been broken up for a while now, but it looks like O’Shea still isn’t over it–he just recently took to instagram to post a picture with the former Love & Hip Hop star naming him his #WCW and saying, “I try not to miss you, but in the end, i still do”

    Don’t worry: he’s still been going to the gym twice a day and keeping up with his modeling, along with occasionally hosting parties and events.

  • 19 Erica Pinkett
    Erica left the reality TV realm to focus on her career in acting, and she’s about to be apart of one of the most anticipated releases in a long time.

    She plays Ayanna Jackson in the new Tupac biopic, “All Eyez On Me,” which began filming last year. She had her work cut out her preparing for the role because Ayanna is a controversial character, but either way it will be exciting to see her on the big screen.
