*While she’s no longer on Love & Hip Hop, Somaya Reece is far from gone.

Media partner chatted with the South Central-bred Latina about her obsession with staying fit, ex-boyfriend Joe Budden, if she’s considering returning to reality TV (Love & Hip Hop LA) and more.

Check out a few excerpts below.

On what motivated her to lose weight and stick with it:

“I have suffered from anorexia, body dismorphia, and bulimia since my preteens and it has been years of yo-yo dieting. I got pressured in Hollywood that you have to be skinny and I had a terrible first boyfriend that got in my head when I was 16 and that was a spiral of where I am at today.”

On what she thinks of her ex-boyfriend, Joe Budden’s relationship with Tahiry:

“I didn’t even know who she was, I guess. She made a video about me and I had no idea. I don’t really have an opinion on them because I don’t know anything about them but I would say that they aren’t together, that I know of and they weren’t even together on the show from what I know of.”

On rumors that she’s been casted on Love & Hip Hop LA and if she’d consider joining the show:

“I don’t even have a problem with doing Love & Hip Hop New York. My biggest thing is the whole Love & Hip Hop brand took an entirely different turn. I don’t know how my positive movement would fit into it. It is a new tone but if they were to get back to the music and things like that, then it makes sense. That is something that I was like talk to her about.
