‘Love & Hip Hop’: Why This Star Regrets Being on the Show

The Love & Hip Hop franchise has to either make stars out of its newcomers or revitalize the careers of those that we are more familiar with. One star from its New York series is opening up how they regret being on the show.

Who is Tara Wallace?

Tara Wallace appeared on four seasons of Love & Hip Hop: New York. She was a main cast member on the fourth, fifth and sixth seasons and a supporting cast member on the seventh season.

She appeared as the longtime girlfriend of Peter Gunz, whom she had been with since 2000. When she first appeared on the show, they had just two children together.

The triangle between Tara Wallace, Peter Gunz, and Amina Buddafly

During her first season on the show, it was revealed that Gunz had married another woman, Amina Buddafly, without Wallace knowing.

This love triangle was a huge storyline on the show for several seasons as Genz continued to go between both Buddafly and Wallace. At one time, they were both pregnant with Gunz’ children at the same time. Overall, while on show, he had three children between the women.

Buddafly and Gunz went through amicable divorce proceedings in 2018. Buddafly and Wallace publicly made amends as well in 2018 and seem to be on good terms.

How Tara Wallace feels about her time on ‘Love & Hip Hop: New York’

Wallace regrets that all of this played out publicly and on-screen. She spoke about it in a new VH1 video series, VH1 Unveiled. “I was apprehensive about doing the show. Knowing Peter, I knew there was something he was leaving out. I think that if I were clear on what we were doing before we did it, I definitely would not have done the show,” she said.

She continued, “I’m kind of old school in the respect that there are things that just happen at home, that stay at home. You don’t go to work and tell your boss all of your business. It’s just really not the place for it. I don’t think I would have done the show had I known what we were doing. I would have just moved on in silence and kept it pushing.”

Gunz, Wallace, and Buddafly are all no longer on Love & Hip Hop: New York, which returns for its new season on VH1 soon.
