Last night on “Love & Hip Hop,” viewers got the first look at cast member Winter Ramos’ long-rumored tell-all book. And while some of the show’s plot lines may have some scripted or not-quite-real elements, it turns out that this book is actually going to be a reality: “Game Over: My Love for Hip Hop” is due to be released on April 1 via Life Changing Books, and is currently available for pre-sale on Amazon.
Comparisons to Karrine Steffans’ infamous book “Confessions of a Video Vixen,” which revealed conquests by name, haven’t been avoidable, with Ramos saying on television that she’s slept with a lot of men in the hip-hop industry.
“You guys may know me as Fab’s assistant, but I’ve been in the music industry for a really long time,” Ramos said on her first episode of L&HH. “I’ve worked with Puff Daddy, Biggie Smalls, Junior Mafia, DMX, Eve, Ja Rule, Ashanti, Irv Gotti. I’ve dated these guys, I’ve slept with them, I’ve worked for them. I know the girlfriend, I know the baby mother, I know the wife — I even know the side chick.” She has tried to distance her book from Steffans’ by declaring it more of a cautionary tale. Still, readers are expecting names to be named.
But all she’s telling may not be the truth, according to Ramos’ L&HH co-star and former roommate Lore’l. Last night’s episode showed Ramos reading a chapter about Lore’l in which she claimed Lore’l had slept around and was difficult to work with, which led to an argument and a fall from an admittedly-tipsy Ramos.
Also coming soon to Life Changing Books, which typically publishes urban fiction: Welfare Grind 3, a novel by Kendall Banks.
