Tami Roman is knee-deep in the filming of Basketball Wives season five, but she took time from her schedule to glam herself up and attend the VH1 DIVAS show last night (seriously, she looks incredible, check out a pic of her below). In this red carpet exclusive, Tami speaks to fellow basketball wife and our red carpet correspondent, Jackie Christie about her own diva-licious-ness, her latest projects (in addition to filming Basketball Wives, she’s also shooting a TVOne series, Belles, and her dance moves, which sound like they aren’t quite up to par with some of last night’s DIVAS performers.

The women of VH1 have been inspiring, infuriating, stylish, silly, hilarious, and riveting all year long, and we want to know which of them you love the most. Each day, we’ll be polling fans here on the blog to narrow down the field show by show — each poll will yield one winner, and next week, on December 26th, we’ll crown one ultimate Fierce Female of 2012. Today, we’re pitting the ladies of Chrissy And Mr. Jones up against Tiffney Cambridge from Marrying the Game and Tiny Harris from T.I. And Tiny: The Family Hustle. Vote for your favorite now and then check back daily to vote for the ladies from all your other favorite series’.
Soft-spoken Basketball Wives L.A. star Malaysia Pargo really does come off as sweet as honey when you talk to her in person. During our recent chat at the season two reunion, she was every bit the calm, cool lady we’ve seen on the show this season, just trying to keep things copacetic among her co-stars. Surprisingly enough, despite the fact that she’s had words with some of the ladies on the show this season, she swears she only wishes them all well and has never tried to be fake or “funny” with any of them, not even Brooke during that odd phone conversation they had.
Read what Malaysia had to say about her current status with all the ladies, and just how hard it was to bring her real-life BFF, Bambi, into such a volatile situation. (Spoiler alert: she says it was one of the hardest things ever.)
There have been a lot of crazy casting rumors before this season even ended that some of you were leaving the show, how annoying is it to deal with stuff that can’t be verified or controlled?
Yeah, it’s annoying but rumors are gonna be rumors, and life wouldn’t be life without rumors. It’s fine. You can never get used to rumors, but what can you do?
This season you were really trying to be the mediator, but sometimes it didn’t really work out the way you planned.
I’m just naturally like that, I want everyone to get along and have a good time. I just thought most of our issues were weird and something that you could brush under the rug. I feel like if something’s not really serious or life threatening, if it’s something you can get over then yes, I will be the peacemaker. If it’s stuff you can’t get over, I’ll just give my opinion and leave it alone.
VH1 DIVAS performer Kelly Clarkson had quite the weekend, amid all the preparations for the big show tonight, she also found a few minutes to break some huge personal news on her Twitter account, letting the world know she got engaged. Our pals at VH1 Tuner were backstage at DIVAS and saw the ring in person (!) but we’ll have to settle for these shots of an ecstatic-looking Kelly, fresh off her performance tonight and showing off her new jewelry.
After the jump, check out a close-up of the ring! Read more…
Tonight’s VH1 DIVAS show has featured some killer performances so far (and we’re not even halfway through), but we wanted to share our favorite photos from the red carpet pre-show that wowed us. From all the show’s titular divas (especially this shot above of Kelly Rowland which we looove) as well as all your favorite VH1 stars, we have photos of everyone you want to see. Check them all out in the gallery below.

The cast of Love And Hip Hop: Atlanta could probably sit around watching paint dry and we’d want to be a fly on the wall watching them do it. That’s why we brought them back for the all-new special Love And Hip Hop Atlanta: Dirty Little Secrets, and it’s why we’re bringing you some behind-the-scenes photos from the taping of that special, because we literally can’t get enough of them. Another reason we love this cast? When they aren’t trying to look cute for the camera, they make the best faces. Rat-like or not.

Tonight’s Love And Hip Hop Atlanta: Dirty Little Secrets special was so full of amazing quotes and hilarious moments, it deserves a re-watch just to see what all we missed the first time around. After watching it a couple times (in pause and rewind slow motion to make sure we got everything) we think we captured all the funniest lines and best parts, so check out our eleven favorite moments from the special below.
Safe to say that none of the stars of Love And Hip Hop: Atlanta (except for maybe Stevie J) has reached a level of notoriety and fame like what they hit after being on the show. When they were asked how the show has changed things for them all, each cast member had a different response. Momma Dee can no longer go to Family Dollar, Rasheeda can’t step into a Walmart without being recognized, Karlie Redd’s sex life is now off the charts, and K.Michelle…well, she explains that “Before the show I was just popping in trailer parks and beauty shops.” But after? “It gave me and my ass a platform!” Read more…

DMX sang about Rudolph. The Game sang about Jingle Bells and taco shells. And now Couples Therapy star Too Short is getting in on the holiday song action with his latest jam celebrating Hannukah. And it might be our favorite song of all. In the untitled song that was first released on TMZ, Too Short raps about frying latkes with Jewish girls, pinching tuchas, and eating brisket. Sample lyric: “It’s Hannukah, baby, now move that ass over!” ‘Nuff said. Check it out.

Last week on the Basketball Wives L.A. Reunion, host John Salley wanted to know who each of the women would choose to oust from the series if it’s back for another season.

Check them out in the clip above, and tune in Monday at 8 p.m. ET/PT for the dramatic conclusion to a volatile season. Read more…
