VH1’s Love & Hip Hop returns tonight with engaged cast members Joe Budden and Cyn Santana. The couple have had their shares of highs and lows over the course of the series, but they appear ecstatic as they head towards their wedding. Learn more about Budden and Santana’s engagement here.
Budden proposed to Santana on December 19 during a live taping of The Joe Budden Podcast in New York City. “This is the best relationship I’ve ever had,” the former rapper said to the crowd. He then turned his attention to Santana, saying: “I’m here to ask you the same thing. Is this the best relationship you’ve ever had?” When she agreed, he got on one knee and responded: “Prove it to me.” Santana was emotionally flustered before she left the stage, telling Budden: “I want to spend this life and the next with you.”

Budden Was Recently Accused By Erica Mena of Cheating on His Fiance
Last month, Budden ran into some drama on Love & Hip Hop when Erica Mena accused him of cheating on Santana. After Budden and fellow cast member Safaree Samuels got into an argument, Mena hopped on Twitter and starting making allegations against the podcast host.
“I don’t get it especially since no one really cared,” she wrote. “Let alone asked about Cyn whereabouts when he brought another female to my mans crib. Mentioned me enough like candy man. I wasn’t even bothering anyone. Not even on the show go figure.” Budden has not yet responded to these allegations.
