'Marriage Boot Camp: Hip Hop Edition': Meet the 5 celebrity couples who will make or break their relationships
Before deciding on making it up or calling it quits, the couples will try to find solutions to some of their issues under Dr Ish and Judge Lynn’s guidance on 'Marriage Boot Camp: Hip Hop' edition
Every couple has their own set of problems and setbacks in their relationships, celebrities are no exception. They might have money, fame, and followers, but that doesn't mean that their relationships are devoid of any issues and picture-perfect as they portray it on social media. WeTV's hit show 'Marriage Boot Camp: Hip Hop Edition', gives us a sneak peek into the lives of five celebrities and their troubled relationships.
Here are the five couples who will be appearing on the upcoming season of 'Marriage Boot Camp: Hip Hop Edition' to work on themselves and their relationships before determining whether they are compatible or if its time to call it quits.
Phaedra and Medina
Southern belle Phaedra Parka became a household name after her stint on popular reality show 'Real Housewives of Atlanta'. After her split from former husband Apollo Nida, the former housewife has found herself a new man, Medina. But unfortunately, things aren't smooth in their relationship. The couple may have been dating for a brief period of time, but they already have enough problems. In their introduction clip, we see Medina explaining how they as a couple want to work on mastering "distance and communication".
Medina claims one of the biggest problems in their relationship is "intimacy, not just sex". We also see Phaedra revealing that the couple hasn't had sex yet. Later, Phaedra explains to the cameras that she is a "perfectionist" and "over-achiever", and turns to Medina, asking him to "man up".
Before any fight breaks out between the couple, they lighten the atmosphere by recounting how the two met. Medina tells that he messaged her on a dating site, but she didn't respond. So, one of their mutual friends intervened and urged Phaedra to reply to Medina's message. This is how our favorite entertainment lawyer found her prince charming. We can't wait to see Phaedra and Medina work on their relationship.
Hazel-E & De'Von
We have all watched Hazel-E and her messy love life on the early seasons of 'Love & Hip Hop: Hollywood'. Thankfully, the reality star seems to have gotten out of the messy love triangle she was a part of on 'LHHH' and found herself a boyfriend in model De'Von. Hazel explains that the couple decided to come on 'Marriage Boot Camp' before they "drive each other crazy or kill each other". Hazel also expresses concerns about her much younger boyfriend's intention of dating her, considering she is 15 years senior to him. She openly wonders if he is with her just for the "clout".
Kurupt and Toni
‘Dog Pound’ fame rapper Kurupt and his lady love Toni may have certainly made the best decision to come on ‘Marriage Boot Camp’ considering the galore of problems they seem to be having in their relationship. In their introduction video, we see Toni being all cold and distant towards her boyfriend. When Kurupt asks her for a hug, she turns him down and doesn’t even allow him to place his hand on her. In case you were wondering what got the Toni fuming at Kurupt, we got you covered.
She explains in her green room interview that Kurupt had cheated on her in the past, but they got over it. But just a day before appearing on ‘Marriage Boot Camp’, Kurupt reportedly cheated on Toni yet again and even got caught by her. This explains why Toni looked so miserable and unhappy. Toni reveals some of the issues plaguing their relationship and highlights on their frequent fights and Kurupt's drinking problem. Phew, they sure seem to have a lot on their plate. Hopefully, the couple can find a solution to some of their issues with Dr Ish and Judge Lynn’s guidance.
Willie and Shanda
Willie of ‘Love & Hip Hop’ fame found himself alongside his wife Shanda on ‘Marriage Boot Camp’ after the couple decided to break the circle of their toxic relationship. The couple shares that they have been married for 12 years and have three children together. But that didn’t stop the duo from cheating on each other. Willie admits that he might have cheated a lot more on Shanda, than she might have done. The couple points out that they want to address the issues of their constant arguing, cheating and disrespectful behavior in their relationship. Aside from her many issues with Willie, Shanda will also have to deal with her beef with Hazel-E.
Tahiry and Vado
Unlike other couples, Tahiry and Vado have known each other all their lives. The couple grew up together in Harlem, New York. Vado reveals that they were friends for several years before they became friends with benefits, and eventually decided on giving the relationship a try. But the rapper explains that he has a hard time understanding Tahiry. In their introduction video, we see him calling his girlfriend a "groupie" and asking her to stop being a "thirst bucket".
We can't wait to watch all the love and drama among these celebrity couples on 'Marriage Boot Camp: Hip Hop Edition' which airs on Thursdays 9 pm EST and 8 pm CST on WeTV.
