So much has happened in the past year that even just thinking back six months feels like a lifetime ago. But for a lot of our VH1 stars, 2011 was the year that they hit it big and their shows premiered on the network and they were beamed into our homes. When I asked some of our talent what the best news of the year was to them, almost no one went with actual news news, rather, everyone here celebrated their personal and professional triumphs, and rightly so. This is a successful group, and they’re proud of their accomplishments. Let’s see what they all had to say about the best thing they heard all year. (And of course there had to be a smartass in the group…OLIVIA.)
The Best News I Heard All Year Was…
Malaysia Pargo, Basketball Wives L.A.: Three Beats was ready for sale…
Chynna Soul, Why Am I Still Single?!: That eye was going to have the time of my life, playing the role “myself” while filming for a VH1 television show, an experience that would fulfill another accomplishment in my life experiences to add a couple of chapters into my upcoming book, “When Are You Gonna Become Rich And Famous And Take Care Of Your Poor Old Mutha?!?”
Victor Goldman, Why Am I Still Single?!: PERSONALLY, PROFESSIONALLY, ROMANTICALLY, THIS WAS THE BEST YEAR OF MY LIFE…I HAD TREMENDOUS NEWS INVOLVING MY KIDS, WE GOT THE GREEN LIGHT ON “WHY AM I STILL SINGLE?!” ON WHICH I AM A LOVE PICKER, AND JAMIE, THE GIRL OF MY DREAMS, AGREED TO BE MY ONE AND ONLY LOVE AND SWEETHEART!!
