I figured Iâd run into him, it was so crazy. I put up a Vine and was following him on Vine and he said something and one day I commented on his Vine back. Then one day in front of everybody he just gave me his phone number on Vine. I said, âWhat are you doing? Do you know my fans will call you?â He was like, âI ainât care. I was trying to get to you.â So that was it. I let him make his move and he did. I didnât know if we would ever talk or nothing like that and he said he had been looking at me for a while."
  3. ''I'm Never Going To Stop.'' 9:00PM ET January 2nd, 2012 Contributor : Rayna Dean A Rocky Williform Company Somaya Reece says she wants to expand her persona beyond "Love & Hip Hop." The voluptuous model/femcee claims that she wants to brand herself along the same lines as pop superstars like Beyonce and Jennifer Lopez. She's focused on balancing her acting and musical careers. "I've always been acting. What people don't know is I started out in commercials," Reece told SOHH. "I started out doing commercials and then I moved onto doing films. I'm just like a lot of people who started out at the bottom. I was doing a lot of extra parts [in films/television] and then I moved onto one-lines, two-lines and now being offered roles. I feel so blessed. I'm never going to stop acting. I've been training and acting for ten years with Aaron Speiser [acting school] and I took courses over at UCLA. I'm never going to stop. I want to be a full brand like Beyonce or J. Lo. They're actresses and they have music and they have branding of merchandise, clothing and things of that nature. So you can definitely expect that from me and I'm going to work harder to push a positive image because that's really what I'm about. That's what I'm about, giving back. This is my thing, I love to do it, I love to act."

Iâm a celebrity mom. All the boss ladies; we can get together and do a show together but not one-on-one. We wonât be able to do it--but itâs negotiable."
