Remy Ma and Papoose's "Love Story" (and matching Timbs) landed on the cover of "Sister 2 Sister" and we have the FIRST look at photo before it hits newsstands! Get the deets on what Remy revealed about their love inside...
Remy Ma is on the loose and hotter than ever. Television appearances, magazine spreads, spitting hot 16s - it's almost like she never went away! But....in the upcoming issue of "S2S" (on newsstands next week) Remy Ma opens up about the ugly side of incarceration and the toll it took on her family and friends.
On the brighter side, she talks about her loving husband Papoose who married her days before she went to jail and who made it a point to see her every moment he could for SEVEN years! It's a true love story. A little ratchet. A little cray cray. But love is love. And one thing this sneak peek proves is Papoose LOVES Remy Ma. Check out the highlights before the magazine hits stands here:
On leaving friends she made in jail behind:
I miss them so much already. It’s so crazy. I had already been packed because I had expected to leave the day before. So I’m like, “It’s just a couple of things I wanna grab like my Bible and some paperwork and pictures that I took over the last couple of days.” And they just really rushed me out of the whole prison. I caught a glimpse of my friends; they had locked them inside the gym and they were all banging on the doors screaming like, “We love you, we love you, we miss you.” It was a wonderful thing. But I’m probably never gonna see them. So who knows? I spent six and a half years with them. They’re going through all types of situations, but one of my stipulations on my parole is that you cannot contact people that have a criminal history. So it’s like you build these relationships and just, due to the new criteria that I have to follow based on my release, I can’t even contact them or let them know everything’s alright and I miss you guys. But that’s part of the situation.
On "No New Friends":
My circle is definitely smaller. If I didn’t know you before like 2000 or even 2005, I really don’t want to have anything to do with you if you’re not my family. It’s not because I think I’m better than anybody; I’m just trying to be more cautious. So, I’m definitely aware of who I am and my career and just the achievements that I’ve made in life. But there are cons, too. I was always aware of the bull. You get to travel and you make a lot of good money and you make a lot of “quote unquote” friends because of who you are. You get free stuff and things like that. But there’s a lot of things that come with that. You don’t know the people that want to see you do bad just because they’re not doing good. Or people that already have preconceived notions of what rappers are like or think you should be what they hear from your music. Those people impose these negative feelings and thoughts onto you, which leads to negative actions.
On the day she got convicted:
I actually didn’t think that I was going to be convicted. You know how some days are just so traumatizing that you don’t even think about it? I really made myself numb to certain things. I don’t talk about it. I feel like there was some things that were handled crazily on several different people’s parts. But I was sentenced to a certain amount of time in the end, so I don’t want to keep revisiting that. I don’t want anybody feeling any type of way, because there’s a bunch of people that feel like, “Oh, she should’ve went to prison for her whole life,” or, “She should’ve done this, she should’ve done that. I felt that, whatever was given to me, I took it and I went through it. And I went through it not just by myself, but with my loved ones that I really care about. They suffered as well. At this point in my life, I don’t want to prolong the suffering by dwelling on what happened that night. I don’t have ill feelings towards anybody or anything. I’m on such a different page and a different chapter in my life that that book is gone. That book is read and it’s over.
On Papoose and his loyalty:
That’s right. In a marriage you get a visit 8:30 in the morning until 3:30, Monday through Friday. Then your weekends alternate. And he was there. If you saw my first year, every single day, Monday thru Friday—canceling whatever he had to do for shows and interviews—he was staying in that prison with me from 8:30 in the morning to 3:30. Then we’d stay on the phone until 5 or 5:30 until lock-in. It was crazy looking back at it now because I just had to tell him one time, like, “Yo, you can’t stay here every day with me.” I think he kinda felt, “Well, as long as you’re here, we’re both here."
Most of the time they split. Initially, I was surprised. But really, if I thought about the type of person that he is, I shouldn’t have ever questioned it. He proved me and everybody else wrong. After that first year or two I was like, “Alright, it’s no need for me to worry anymore; he’s definitely in it for the long run.” And it’s obvious how much he loves me. I never have to question that.
This issue of "S2S" hits stands soon.

Ray J is making his promo rounds after the premiere of “Love & Hip Hop Hollywood.” And he’s dishing on his new show in the works, his battery arrest AND his girlfriend Princess Love's ex-boyfriend Floyd Mayweather. Get the deets inside….
“Love & Hip Hop Hollywood” star Ray J (above in NYC today) stopped by HOT 97 to chop it up with Ebro about many things. He dished on starring in his sixth reality show "LAHH Hollywood", why he decided to do the show, he gave his side of what went down when he was arrested for battery after a woman claimed he violated her, who deserves the credit for Kim Kardashian's fame AND talked about his girlfriend Princess Love’s ex-boyfriend/boxing champ Floyd Mayweather.
Here are the highlights:
On his upcoming VH1 show:
“I’m on my sixth show and I’m developing another show on VH1 right now”
On why he decided to do “Love & Hip Hop Hollywood”:
“I had a deal with Oxygen. We were working on the ‘Bad Girls All Star Battle 1& 2’ and then Mona [Scott-Young] called me then Susan (who’s one of the heads of VH1 on the west coast) when she called me I was like aight. I thought about it because I was doing something else, but when Susan called me I know that there is a future here again cause when I did the ‘For The Love of Ray J’ I came back and created ‘Brandy & Ray J: A Family Business’ and it helped our production company grow. So this time around, it’s that same time of deal except we doubling up.”
On creating Kim Kardashian’s fame:
“No, God did that. I didn’t do that. You know legally I can’t talk about that.”
On him having creative control on “LAHH Hollywood”:
“I don’t know control. I control my scenes and who I shoot with, but I don’t have any control. Mona and them have all control of this, I’m just turnt up.”
On breaking up with Teairra Mari:
“She from the D [Detroit], so she always had a voice and when she got mad, she expressed herself a little bit more over the top then other people would. A lot of physical altercations. I don’t put my hands on women, so you keep getting punched a lot of times or you keep getting hit…She throwing a lot of blows throughout the season. I don’t want to be put in a position where I got to try to get away or defend myself.”
“I got probation because I went further than what I should when they was trying to say I did that. I’m in trouble because I didn’t do the sh*t and then it’s like…but I still shouldn’t have did that. I shouldn’t have overacted like that. I don’t ever want to be put in that position where…cause you know my mom, my sister…like I respect women all the way around the board. And I just didn’t want to be typecast like that.”
On his relationship with Princess Love:
“We been together for like almost two years in a weird kind of way. We been together for like a year but then we was together before that for a year too but I was kinda in another situation (i.e. Teairra Mari). I was in another situation but when I met her I fell for her. I realized the other situation was bad and this one was good.”
On if Princess was a stripper:
“Yes she was.”
On his girlfriend’s ex-boyfriend Floyd Mayweather:
“There’s a code and dealing with certain people you have to respect the code because it’ll just get way messy. So instead of that, I love her, I met her, people kinda know what it is but out of respect for the whole everything I’m chillin’. Ain’t nobody got no feelings, it is what it is, but again I’m working and the minute you flip it and go back into some other ish and start creating…it just becomes too much and I don’t wanna be involved with that.”
The reality star king stopped to chat it up with the ladies on “The Real.” During his sitdown, he talked about proposing to his girlfriend and played a game where he had to use his charm to get out of sticky situations.

This has been one hell of a summer for former “The View” co-host Sherri Shepherd. But she’s finally breaking her silence. Find out what she told Wendy about her pending divorce to Lamar Sally, the custody drama with her ex-husband Jeffrey and “The View” inside…
Former “The View” co-host Sherri Shepherd sat down on the “Wendy Williams Show” for her first televised interview since ish went left in her personal life.
First her then husband Lamar Sally filed for divorce, followed by a lot of messiness involving their unborn baby via surrogate and trying to suck her dry for every dime she has. Then her nine-year-old son’s father Jeffrey Tarpley tried to have their son taken away from her, which resulted in a nasty custody battle. And to top it all off, she was released from the hit daytime TV talk show, “The View.” She has been THROUGH it.
But through it all, she has kept a positive demeanor and energy but behind closed doors, fighting like hell to receive her just due in court. Since all of this happened, Sherri has pretty much remained mum about it all but now, she’s finally breaking her silence and giving her side of everything that went down...well as much she's allowed to legally say.
Wendy got right to it asking her if she watched the premiere episode of the new season of “The View” with new co-hosts Rosie Perez, Rosie O'Donnell and Nicolle Wallace. Yep, she watched! And here’s what she had to say about it,
“I watched ‘The View’ on Monday and I love the hot topics. I love when they get into it. I think everybody is very nervous. Rosie Perez I know you are a champion and I have been championing Rosie Perez for a long time. Go girl!”
Although Rosie O’Donnell threw a little shade at Sherri after her departure during an interview, Sherri revealed Rosie actually helped her with her negotiations when she first started “The View.” Rosie gave her tips on how much money she should request, dishing to her how much she made. Girl Power!
What’s the status between her and her ex-husband Jeffrey?
“He took me court. The paper said that I was a bad mother. And anybody who knows me knows I live for my son Jeffrey, he is everything to me. I’m a working mama. I went to court in L.A. and the judge ruled in my favor. I retained custody of my son.”
And what’s good with her first ex-husband Jeffery and her soon-to-be ex-husband Lamar Sally forming an alliance against her? She said,
“That’s creepy! That’s nasty. It’s like everybody is suing me, just ask me to be a reference on a job application, you don’t have to sue me. I don’t know why they’re talking, what’s going on.”
Does she talk to Sal at all? “No we don’t talk but I’m on my knees praying a lot for him.”
Wendy wanted to ask about the drama surrounding the surrogate, but since the case is still pending, Sherri wasn’t allowed to talk about it. But she did open up about how she and Sal first met and realized the error of her ways...way too late.
Is she dating now? Because apparently, there are rumors that she and Johnny Gill (from New Edition) are dating. She said, “Johnny and I are really good friends because I am a New Edition groupie.” Mmmhmm.
She also talked about her 3-month run as the evil stepmother in the Broadway musical Cinderalla, alongside Keke Palmer.
Did she answer enough of your questions?
