“Southern belle, Taranasha Wallace, was born and raised in a small-town of Mississippi and moved to NYC to pursue her dream of acting. She holds a degree in Dramatic Art from Jackson State University and a MFA in acting from NY’s Actors Studio Drama School. During school and after graduating, Tara pounded the NYC pavement and was heavily involved in musical and off-Broadway theater, appearing in various productions. Tara is the long-time girlfriend of rapper, Peter Gunz. They have been together over 13 years and live with their 2 children, Jamison (5) and Kaz (2). Tara is truly the epitome of brains and beauty“.
Season 4 of Love And Hip Hop: New York premieres next Monday October 28 on VH1 and there are three new faces including Tara Wallace, Erica Jean and Amina Buddafly. K. Michelle of Love And Hip Hop Atlanta left the Atlanta version of the show after last season and she is now featured on this season’s New York version. I promise you that these ladies will bring a lot of drama to the show. Friend to the blog Yandy Smith along with Tahiry and Erica Mena are returning! Read more about these women below:
“Born in the Bronx and raised in Queens, NY, a talented Erica Jean has always been addicted to the theater. Her love and drive for the performing arts lead her to attend Howard University as a Theater Arts major. Erica Jean has done several performances in the tri-state area including: James Baldwins’, Off Broadway production of Blues for Mister Charlie. Erica Jean’s main focus these days is raising her very energetic son, Stephen, aka “Lil,” B”, that she has with Rapper Saigon. Being a single mom at times can be taxing and tiring but that doesn’t keep Erica Jean from being upbeat and positive. Erica Jean is now pursuing her second passion, working in the medical field. She is currently continuing her education to become a nurse“.
“Amina (formerly of “Black Buddafly”) was born and raised in Hamburg Germany, to a Senegalese father and a German mother. Together with her older sister Sophie and her twin Jazz, she began singing before she could talk. She started songwriting at the age of 13 and the day she discovered studio recording was the point of no return. She and her sisters formed the group Black Buddafly and signed their first record deal in 1997 with BMG Germany. Black Buddafly was signed to Def Jam and J Records. After Black Buddafly disbanded, her sisters moved back to Germany. Aside from her being an artist, Amina is very driven and determined to become a big-time songwriter/composer“.
