There are just some transgressions that can never be undone and that is Lyrica G’s exact sentiment following this season of Love & Hip Hop Hollywood.
As an acclaimed songstress, Lyrica G’s brand image means everything to her and she refuses to tarnish it by having a tête-a-tête with her son-in-law’s mother. We caught up with Lyrica G following the reunion and aside from being caught off-guard by Pam’s behavior, she’s fine and ready to be a grandmother to Lyrica Anderson and A1 Bentley’s first child together. Following an extremely stressful season, Lyrica G’s main hope is that her grandchild is healthy. “Dealing with the stress that my daughter was under this entire year” was a lot, Lyrica G. shared, quoting Ray J who apparently equated the drama to “pregnancy abuse.” Thankfully with the help of momma, Lyrica Anderson was able to get through it but aside from that, Lyrica G. just prays that her grandchild is “raised in a much better environment than he experienced in the womb.”
As joyous as this blessing is, it’s a shame that both grandmothers aren’t on good terms. In case you missed contentious happenings, here’s a quick reminder:
When asked about the explosive verbal attack on her, Lyrica G told VH1 in an exclusive interview:
I felt embarrassed and disrespected and disappointed that someone who you never done anything to, that you don’t even know outside of filming, could have so much rage. We were all blindsided about her jumping up just out of place and out of line. I understand because she doesn’t have no one else to come for and I was disgusted just looking at it. I told my daughter and A1 that no matter what, I wouldn’t carry that type of energy into the reunion, period. There was never a reason to other than to defend myself but she wasn’t worth me embarrassing my character any further than I already done. I vowed to control myself because what was the point of jumping up and getting to her? What was the point? She was the one mad, not me. The thing that really disappointed me is how she could lie. She’s saying that I’m the reason that her two sons aren’t talking; where did I get power from? First of all, I never talked to her other son. A1 said ’aww man, he’s a 30-year-old man, I don’t have any influence over his thinking.’ I treat A1 with respect and he treats me back with respect. It’s that simple.
If you’re curious about Lyrica G’s relationship with Pam after all of the chaos went down, well, it’s nonexistent. Lyrica G passionately stated:
I don’t even know the woman. That’s the thing that’s so baffling. I see her if we have a dinner. A1 invites her, he invites me. Lyrica and I are there before them. We have the dinner. She’s always competitive with me and we don’t have anything in common. Out of respect of A1 and my daughter, I try to be cordial when we are on camera, even though she said and did some things I thought was crossing the line. If you noticed, all season long, I tried to reason with her. I tried to make sense of why this should not be this bad but she got the green light to behave like a hoodrat and that’s her true nature. That’s really not my nature. My nature is to defend my daughter.
While many criticized A1 for not coming in defense of his wife when Pam was going awf, Lyrica G. had a very different take on the whole situation. She said,
I don’t think it would’ve been proper for A1 to go back and forth with his mom who he already knows has issues. I think he could have said, “sit the f–k down,” or he could’ve gone off, but why? That would’ve perpetuated an already embarrassing situation. I knew that he recognized that she was out of place. She still didn’t stop. We talked about it since and he knows it’s a volatile situation now because it carried into their personal lives. She has no cap. Anything for the attention and how she wants to portray me. I just let her rant and get it out of her system but what hurts me is two overgrown women with kids that are new in their marriage and having a baby, she could not even allow that to control her ’ratchetness.’ I get what the reunion is about and I know she’s good TV because she doesn’t care about how she looks. I care.
In speaking on how she’s conducted herself her entire career, Lyrica G also added that, Pam wasn’t even at A1 and Lyrica’s baby shower because “A1 tried to talk to her about her behavior and she lit in on him.” Lyrica G maintains that she has a great relationship with A1 but as far as Pam goes Lyrica says, “If I saw her now, I would end up in jail. It’s just not a healthy way to feel. Not a healthy way to think. When you think of someone so evil, that black-hearted that they could stand up flat-footed and to go in on you with no interaction from you. That’s pretty cold.”
Lyrica says she always been open to being on better terms but she’s simply not the problem. All she could do now is focus on being a “G-Ma” and releasing more amazing songs for your soul. “I’m a singer, a reputable one, I have an EP I’m about to drop,” Lyrica went on to share and OH! She has a beau! This lady doesn’t kiss & tell and with the relationship merely 3-months-old, Lyrica isn’t willing to name-drop him yet. She just knows, she’s not “traveling to Nigeria,” to meet anyone.
