EXCLUSIVE INTERVIEW: "Love & Hip Hop 3" Star Tahiry Jose Wants To Be The Next NENE LEAKES, Says Ex Joe Budden Put Her Over The Edge Of FAME


Tahiry Jose, the urban covergirl who first caught the public's eye as Joe Budden girlfriend is set to stir the pot on season 3 of VH1's hit reality series "L&HH." Check out TheYBF.com's exclusive interview inside....


VH1 is amped up for season 3 of its urban soap-opera "Love & Hip Hop" (January 7) and this season we'll see a cast of both new and familiar faces who are full of excitement and drama. 

One of the new faces gracing the small screen will be Dominican model Tahiry Jose (shown atop with co-star Rashidah Ali at Thursday night's premiere party).  The Harlem native first rose to fame through a series of online video posts from her then boyfriend, rapper Joe Budden (who also stars on "L&HH").

Though the show has yet to debut, the drama between the former couple has already spilled off screen and into social media with the pair bickering about Joe rapping about her on his most recent mixtape, A Loose Quarter


Tahiry spoke exclusively to TheYBF.com about it all.  Here are the highlights:

With many people labeling you a video ho or rapper arm piece, explain the image YOU are trying to convey:

I am being really "real" on tv and it's not an act. I am hard-working and I’m a college graduate whose grown into a business woman and who's building my brand. I hope to show the whole world that dating a rapper is not all glitz and glamour and I’m a regular person.  I'm "human."

On how she was “discovered” and began her career in the industry

I started doing blogs with Joe. I don’t think he knew what he was doing....he was just putting the camera on his girlfriend. He uploaded it to YouTube and the world loved it. And now, several years later, I’ve done almost every urban magazine and appeared in the movie, Interlude.

On if she feels like Joe Budden discovered her

I believe he put me out there.  BUT, you could put a camera on anybody and you won’t get the same effect. He's had a thousand girlfriends and he’s put the camera on each and every one of them.  But there’s a reason why I’m here…..still. He helped me over the edge….

On finding out Joe was a part of "LAHH 3"

I remember the day exactly. I had held onto the contract for a week and I had it in my gym bag. I was just walking and reminding myself to sign the contract, then I got a phone call. They said Joe had signed a contract and he’s a part of "Love & Hop Hop" and my day became CLOUDY. Like literally, everything just stopped around me and I was 'f*ck f*ck f*ck'. And then I said, what the hell. Who am I fooling? Together or not together, that’s why we got on the show.

On Joe talking about her on his mixtape and VH1 wanting them to film together

In retrospect, everything is funny and you get over situation. But in the moment, it’s my real life. I can’t be mad at VH1, we both signed on for this. But still, there’s also real life happening, I mean what you see on tv is real, but it’s moving a lot slower than real life (the mixtape situation happened AFTER they filmed). So it’s difficult because I am not pretending. But Joe does that all the time. He raps about me all the time and he holds on to sh*t.

On what she hopes to gain from being on "L&HH"

Like I said, I’m just being me and I’m enjoying the ride.   I want to be the next Nene Leakes. Why the f*ck not? Let’s get it. I mean, I been doing this for four years so now it’s time to take it up a notch.

On reservations about going on LAHH and her Twitter gangsters…

I come from blogging about my life but the main thing with this is we weren’t in control. Just knowing that I’m not in control scares me. And now it’s a bigger audience…I mean this is on tv! It’s crazy. But it’s been fun. And on the internet thugs, thing can get quite harsh…I am human. I've got a thick skin and it comes with the territory.

On what we expect in the near future?

I am building my empire, which is a little bit of everything. From clothes to music to acting. I’ve covered almost every urban magazine out there….just have a little piece of me everywhere. I'm also looking into opening my own bar/lounge in Florida (South Beach).

Love & Hip Hop 3" kicks off January 7th, 8p on VH1.

Notice Natasha and cre

Notice Natasha and cre focuses mostly on booty models, reality people, athletes and strippers. There is little that she posts on fab black people and trust that info is actually out there on the regular. She would rather post all this ratchet trash under the mask of being fab because it will get her more hits. She never intended to focus on fab blacks. Very Bob Johnson ( BET) of her.

Yeah @Tori YBF Natasha needs

Yeah @Tori YBF Natasha needs to do better CUZ all this L&HH IRRELEVENT RATCHETNESS is NOT the BUSINESS! All of the Real Housewive's shows are above this mess(even the Miami one nobody hardly watches). She really needs to focus on real celebrites and only post the low low reality show stars as a last resort! That's just MHO! What's so funny is my sister is always saying..That YBF you like so much is always posting the most IRRELEVENT STUFF, she says that Natasha person ain't w/ it. That girl loves her some LipStick Ally. That chick lives on that site, she hardly ever ever comes on this site. I just prefer this site better. I said if Natasha don't DO BETTER she could end up like CONCRETE LOOP! I recently checked them out and they have like 8 comments per topic. I think that site has seen better days! It's a shame that CONCRETE LOOP person could not do better because it's not poor looking like MTO, Sandra Rose or Necole Bitchie, she just can't generate enough BUZZ! By the way who won the jeep?

LMAO @Shay..."Who won the

LMAO @Shay..."Who won the jeep?" girl it's more like who won the AUCTION for that repossessed jeep down at the police station? Lol, NATASHA ridin aroun the city in her new jeep lmao! I don't really go to too many "popular urban blogs" I really like TMZ, I like SFTA, I like Kid Fury's blog & sumtimes I hit up MTO for sh!ts & giggles lol, cuz I could email them something OUTRAGEOUS & see it posted the next day lol same with BOSSIP. I like smaller blogs b/c 90% of the time the sh!t they post is FACT...not FAIRYTALES! I think I went to concrete loop once & thought...this sh!t look like it was set up by an 8th grader, all the COLORS & DRAMATIC BACKGROUNDS...no thank u lol!

@Tori, I also like TMZ, Just

@Tori, I also like TMZ, Just Jared and Daily Mail, MTO, and Bossip are really just for laughs and should never really be taken too serious! How Natasha gonna get away w/ just IGNORING the fact that she was suppose to announce the winner of the contest in Dec 2012. Lol! "The Auction repossessed jeep at the police station"! Too Funny! I TELL YOU she needs to get on the BALL! You see that CRAY CRAY "IT" THANG is STALKING another female, @Crazy Sexy Cool for no other reason than her being a FEMALE target for his EVERLASTING HATING ASS! What happen to the days when you could just, come on a site, make a comment without being harrassed by a Psycho, Lunatic Cross Dressing Freak who lives to HATE mostly on females that post their pic's. It's totally insane to say the least!

@Shay I went to Carol's

@Shay I went to Carol's Daughter website to see if they had posted a "winner" but they hadn't...WOMP! I bet there is NO WINNER, it was just a marketing tool for YBF & Carol's Daughter cuz the contest was featured on a BUNCH of websites smh! "IT" is 2 damn funny, sum1 said sum sh!t about HIS BS avi & HE actually replied (after bragging about Britney's money of course) that he "STAYS WINNING" I nearly choked on my drink, THAT TRANNY TROLL WOULDN'T KNOW WHAT WINNING WAS IF IT CAME PACKAGED IN A BOX FILLED WITH HATE! How u "WINNING" with NO JOB, NO FRIENDS, NO EDUCATION & NO LIFE?? Boy I tell u that IT thing is 10 kinds of CRAZY! He is as BASIC as ithey come!
