 Last Friday, an intimate group of friends, family and staff of Monami Entertainment threw "Love & Hip Hop" creator/executive producer Mona Scott-Young a surprise birthday party at NYC's Pink Elephant. Guests included Hot 97 program director Ebro Darden, BET's Rhonda Cowan, Yandy Smith ("Love & Hip Hop"), K.Michelle ("Love & Hip Hop Atlanta"), K. Foxx (Hot 97 personality), Ariane Davis ("Love & Hip Hop Atlanta"), Jamie Foster Brown (Sister 2 Sister), Kim Osorio (The Source), Dr. Jeff Gardere, Misa Hylton, Jacquie Lee, Sidra Smith, Jas Fly and many more. With her husband Shawn Young by her side, Mona was all smiles as she cut into a Christian Louboutin-inspired cake. Attendees wrote their birthday wishes on a giant board, while nodding to the sounds of DJ Chris Washington and sipping on Myx Fusions and Bartenura Moscato.
