‘Love & Hip Hop’ Season 6, Episode 9 Recap: Cisco and Rich Dollaz Fight, Cam’ron and Mendeecees Hit the Studio
Last week's episode of Love & Hip Hop ended off with Rich Dollaz exposing his dealings with Mariah Lynn to Cisco. Rich wants to bury the beef and get the Creep Squad back on good terms, but Cisco is still intent on getting payback for when Rich dated Diamond Strawberry.
Rich contends that he was trying to look out for Cisco and when he got word from Rah Ali that Cisco was seeing Mariah Lynn, he knew it was payback for Diamond Strawberry. But he also makes it aware that this scenario doesn't constitute as payback, being that he doesn't care for Mariah how Cisco appears to. In a fit of frustration, Cisco pushes Rich and security intervenes. This leaves Rich in shock as he says he would never fight Cisco and looks at him as a brother. According to Rich, he was just trying to get him to see Mariah's true colors.
Cisco agrees to meet up with Mariah, who says she felt set up. She's upset with Cisco for saying he just dealt with her to get back at Rich and that they're done. Cisco maintains that Mariah was the one that was devious and is making no apologies and pegs her actions as being disloyal.
Remy's wedding date is approaching and she's finalizing the specifics and calls in Yandy for assistance. Remy and Yandy are far from a match made in heaven, but Remy feels she is qualified due to her recent wedding and wants to be open to her opinion.
Yandy wants to get sparkles, which Remy isn't into. The rapper isn't really in the mood for shopping and talks to Yandy about making up with Papoose's mother and opens up about her issues with her own mom. Remy says her mother said she's not coming to the wedding and that hurts Remy's feelings. Yandy wants the Bronx native to call her mother because she'll end up regretting it if she doesn't.
Mendeecees gets in the studio with Cam'ron to listen to some songs and catch up on their recent moves. Yandy's husband has a new sneaker line, which he wants Cam to be a part of. Cam'ron catches Mendeecees mumbling and mentions that he began writing rhymes as a hobby to pass time, much to the rapper's amusement. He puts on a beat and coaxes Mendeecees to get in the booth and spit a verse. A bit bashful at first, he does his thing and Cam'ron thinks it was better than expected.
Remy follows Yandy and Papoose's advice and sits down with her mother to address the bad blood between them. Her mom feels her daughter doesn't want her to be at her wedding and that Papoose was the only one to invite her. According to her, Remy has a grudge against her. She just wanted to be included and have her daughter invite her to the wedding herself.
After their family discussion, Remy and Papoose have a romantic dinner together. The rhymer breaks the news that she wants to change the venue from the mansion and wants to have an ice skating-themed wedding with snow and all the works. Papoose had already made a deposit on the castle, but says that Remy only gets one wedding so he's willing to sacrifice the deposit to give her a dream wedding.
Rah Ali and Remy meet at a boxing ring she's training at to talk about how the wedding is stressing her out. Rah agrees to begin helping with the wedding again, but she feels that Remy left her and that she's the petty queen. Remy also inform sRah that Yandy has been helping her with her wedding, which rubs Rah the wrong way due to her and Yandy's rivalry. She feels Yandy and Remy are fake friends. Yandy feels the tension in the air and that Rah disapproves of her being there. Rah asks Yandy if she knows Remy's favorite flower or her birthday in a mocking tone. Yandy says that she's always claimed Remy's wedding as her own, which makes Rah laugh inside. The two rivals are clearly not fond of each other.
Yorma is happy that her and DJ Self's relationship is getting back on track. She has lunch with her sister, who is skeptical of Self's ways. Her sister has discovered a picture of DJ Self and Rose, the stylist, together, as well as audio of him and her on the radio and the both of them promoting her business on the show. They plan to go to Rose's Beauty Bar and confront her about the situation. Yorma has reservations about going and doesn't want to come off as the crazy girlfriend, but agrees to visit her spot.
When she decides to show up at Rose's Beauty Bar to confront her, Rose says that she's heard about Yorma. She knew why she showed up as soon as she walked through the door. Yorma says that she's DJ Self's girlfriend, while Rose says her and Self have been dealing with each other for years. According to her, Self comes around all the time and she could have him anytime she wants. Yorma's sister provokes the situation by saying that she's not scared of Rose and her crew. As Rose comes from behind the counter, Yorma starts to wreck her store before being escorted out by security.
Self gets a surprise visit from Yorma at the studio after she went head-to-head with Rose. She tells him to come downstairs and inquiries about his dealings with Rose. Self says he takes a lot of pictures with a lot of people and that she likes him -- he insists that he hasn't had sex with her. Yorma informs him about her run-in at the beauty bar and how Rose voiced her intentions of getting with Self. Yorma asks if he had sex with her and Self denies it, but does admit that Rose kissed me. Yorma doesn't believe Self, deeming him untrustworthy, and breaks off their relationship.
Cardi B is frustrated about the lack of progress in her music career and approaches Self about failing to help her. He contends that having her in his music video was good exposure, while Cardi begs to differ and feels that she did Self a favor.

He wants her to listen and take advice, but he is willing to help her out if her music is dope.
Peter Gunz says he's trying to pick up the pieces in his life and hasn't talked to Tara or Amina since. He and Rich Dollaz catch up to talk about their problems.

Peter is shocked when he finds out about Cisco pushing Rich and says that they shouldn't be fighting over a girl and wants to help dead the beef. Cisco, however, doesn't see eye to eye with Peter or Rich and has his own plans, setting the stage for what looks to be a can't-miss-episode of Love & Hip Hop next week.
