Raqi Thunda And Lore’l Visit The Breakfast Club To Discuss Love And Hip Hop


“Are you sleeping with Joe Budden or not?” Charlamagne asked Love And Hip Hop star Raqi Thunda immediately after introducing her in this interview from today’s Breakfast Club show. “Absolutely not,” Raqi responds. “Never.”

From there, the interview gets even meatier (pardon the pun) because Raqi does admit she’s seen him naked because he’s a free spirit who doesn’t care who sees his junk. In this clip, Raqi discusses her relationships with Joe and Tahiry, Joe’s drug use, and why she’s not the type of person to tell all. She also addresses her nickname, “I.P.” so check out the interview above. In the clip below, Lore’l also joined the show to discuss her beef with Erica Mena. Read more…

Black Ink Crew – Episode 2 – The O’S**t Hits The Fan


“It’s time for a shake-up on this boat. Somebody’s got to go overboard,” Ceaser, the boss who feels like he hasn’t been treated as an authority figure much lately, says at the beginning of Black Ink Crew. There’s been a lot of questionable behavior from his subordinates lately, and O’S**t, one of his main tattoo artists, is guilty of barely showing up and doing shoddy work when he does. Ceaser has just about had enough. Read more…

Alex Estevez Black Ink Crew Urban Ink
On tonight’s Black Ink Crew, we learned that one of Alex‘s many talents is as a model, and she showed us her stuff during a photo shoot for Urban Ink magazine. O’S**t was so impressed with her posing (and the fact that he was wedged in near “her cheeks”) that he declared that he was going to marry her. So of course we thought you needed a closer look at her in action.

“You Gotta Respect Booty Shorts”: Watch Check Yourself Featuring The Cast Of Love And Hip Hop As They See The Show For The First Time


Ever wish you were a fly on the wall to see how the casts of reality shows react when they watch their show for the first time? We’ve always been a little curious to know what they think when they watch all the drama (and occasional fighting and smack talk directed at them), which is why we have a brand new web series here on VH1.com called “Check Yourself.” The series features the cast of Love And Hip Hop as they view the show in real time and react accordingly. This week’s first clip features Raqi and Joe Budden whose confrontation at SOB’s left their friendship in question.

“Damn, he was brutal,” Raqi says as she watches Joe cut her down. “It definitely marked the end of our friendship,” she reveals. But how does Joe see things? He applauds himself and says “Bravo! That’s exactly how you’re supposed to handle it.” Later, find out what makes Jen Bayer embarrassed about this episode and why she was so emotional, and hear Rich talk about his crush on Tahiry.

VH1 Blog Exclusive: Ramona Rizzo Recaps Mob Wives Episode 2: Doing What We Can To Survive

Ramona Rizzo Recaps Mob Wives

This season, the VH1 Blog is lucky enough to have the participation of the Mob Wives cast who will be commenting on every episode of the show. This week, Ramona Rizzo is taking to her keyboard to give us her opinions on episode two, and on the journey that she and the rest of her cast mates have been on, on that rocky road called love. Read Ramona’s thoughtful recap below. We have to say, it’s great to read her thoughts on the ways the ladies of the cast are able to unify, despite their obvious differences and disagreements!

We often forget that an ex-boyfriend or ex-husband are an ex for a reason…they are to be put in the past. I as well as so many other females have been caught up and put on an emotional roller coaster ride. In doing so, we often get side tracked from our main focus and the things they’ve done to us such as cheating on us, lying to us and some, like Renee and myself, have had to deal with domestic violence in their relationship.
