RECAP: Love & Hip Hop New York “Ups & Downs” [Season 6, Episode 7]

Alison is a 32 year old native of The Bay Area, California. She loves reality shows. Guess you can say she's sort of an addict, the crazier, the better! She's sarcastic, snarky, brutally honest (tell it like it is kinda girl), but she does have a soft side as well.
