The G-List Society met up with Teairra Mari to discuss the LHHH drama, her thoughts on Brandy’s defense of Ray J and the new music shes working on. Check out the interview below:
HNGN.com had the pleasure of sitting down with cast member and singer Teairra Mari to get the scoop on what’s ahead, how she’s reviving her music career and her current status with ex-boyfriend, Ray J.
HNGN.com: What made you want to do “Love & Hip Hop: Hollywood?”
Teairra Mari: What made me want to do the show? Well, first of all, me and Hazel E, we went out onto the balcony one day, when we were living together, and she was just like ‘T, you need to call Mona [Scott-Young] and see if she wants to bring ‘Love & Hip Hop’ to Hollywood.’ So she was like let’s see if she’ll come here and do “Love and Hip Hop: Hollywood” and I was like ‘oh ok, well…’ so we just put it all together and we listed all the people that we would like to see on there. Half of the people that we listed are on the cast, including Masika [Tucker], Yung Berg, Ray J, Fizz. And they came and started doing interviews and moved on from there.
HNGN.com: Given your history with Ray J why have him on the show?
TM: Well Hazel was the one who mentioned Ray J since she knew my history and she was like you’re gonna have to be real. Hazel didn’t even wanna be a part of the show. She wasn’t doing this for her. She did push me into leading the pack and I appreciate her for that, that’s why I was surprised we fell out.
HNGN.com: What’s your relationship with Hazel like now?
TM: Well, you know. I don’t know. We haven’t talked in a while but there’s a sisterhood there and there will always be a sisterhood there and there will always be love. We’re just gonna have to see where God takes that relationship.
HNGN.com: Speaking of your relationships with certain cast members. How are you and Sincere?
TM: I respect him; I was just confused as to why he wasn’t respecting me all the way. He apologized and I accepted his apology so I have to move forward. It’s not on the show, but in real life we both apologized.

Teairra Marí is back in the spotlight after being reintroduced to the world on Love & Hip-Hop: Hollywood. Although she was heavily criticized for her quick-to-pop-off ways on the show, the former Def Jam recording artist is moving full steam ahead with using the platform to reignite her singing career.
Last week, Teairra and I caught up over the phone while she was in NYC filming the LHHH reunion show (which I hear was full of all kinds of ratchet drama!!). During our chat, Teairra shared her thoughts on how she was portrayed on the show, last week’s domestic violence incident between Yung Berg’s and Masika Tucker, and Ray J’s accusation that she was physically abusive during their relationship. She also spoke on her former friend, Hazel E. Check out highlights below.
ON HOW SHE WAS PORTRAYED ON THE SHOW:
“I feel like I’ve been backed into a lot of corners, and my reactions haven’t been the classiest. I’m not proud of all of my reactions, but I think I’ve been portrayed for who I am. In trying situations, where people try me, I’ve shown sides that I don’t like of myself.”
ON RAY J’S ACCUSATION THAT SHE WAS ABUSIVE, WHICH CONTRIBUTED TO THEIR BREAKUP:
“Well I think that he needs to stop sounding like a battered wife, but he is who he is. He’s Ray J – known to be somewhat of a womanizer, and I’m sure you can see his behavior on the show too and that could answer that question. I don’t want to bad mouth anybody, and I won’t, but II will say that it wasn’t totally me why we aren’t together. It takes two.”
ON HER MUCH-MALIGNED PERFORMANCE ON THE SHOW:
“I know that that was a bad performance, and not every performance is going to be a great one. So I just don’t pay attention to negativity. I know that that was a very off performance, but I was going through a very bad time at the time. With shooting this show, being put in certain situations with Ray, with Hazel. Just the whole show and the process and even being thrown into that performance with no rehearsals and no nothing. They called me like, ‘okay, your performance at ‘R&B Live’ is tomorrow’ And I’m like, ‘well what about rehearsal?’ And it’s like no rehearsal. And it’s like I haven’t performed in forever and ya’ll just throwing me out there, but it is what it is. I should’ve still be prepared myself.”
