Shanda Denyce and her husband, Willie Taylor, formerly of Bad Boy’s R&B group Day 26, were the new kids on the block on season two of Love & Hip-Hop: Hollywood, and while her stripper past threw a wrench in couple’s story line, the Chicago native isn’t letting it hold her back.

Wanting to leave stripping behind in 2015, Shanda’s taken advantage of the national stage to embark on a music career, as well as step out of her hubby’s shadows.

We caught up with Shanda backstage at VH1 Live! to discuss the third season of Love & Hip-Hop: Hollywood, separating from her husband of 15 years, and her new relationship with herself. Shanda’s adamant that she’s more than a stripper and a housewife, and with her story line on this season of Love & Hip-Hop heating up, we’ll surely find out a few surprising facts about the 31-year-old reality star.

You can catch Shanda and Willie each and every Monday on VH1’s Love & Hip-Hop: Hollywood at 8 p.m. EST.

Watch our exclusive interview with Shanda up top.
