Allow Us To Set The Record Straight On Those Rumors That The Basketball Wives L.A. Cast Has Been Fired

Basketball Wives L.A. Cast Members
By now we’re sure that many of you Basketball Wives L.A. fans may have read reports that four of the six main cast members have been fired from the show. Last weekend, TMZ made waves when they reported an exclusive news story that everyone except Jackie Christie and Draya Michele would not be returning for season three of the series because they “weren’t allowing all of their reality to be filmed.”

The time has come to set the record straight. We can officially tell you all that despite the widespread reports, none of them are true. There have been absolutely no casting decisions made regarding the next season of the show. Some of the ladies have responded to the allegations, with Brooke Bailey tweeting “Not all rumors you hear are true….Don’t go off of what you hear, but what you see instead,” and Laura Govan also responding “P.S. ya girl ain’t never been fired from ANYTHING in life. eff what ya heard!” We agree with Laura and Brooke…don’t believe everything you hear.

Simon van Kempen Recaps Couples Therapy Episode 6: This Was Our Moment To Cross The Line

Simon van Kempen Recaps Couples Therapy

This season on Couples Therapy, there’s a lot of drama in the house thanks to the incredibly diverse and occasionally divisive personalities that have been cast. One couple, reality veterans Simon van Kempen and Alex McCord, have offered to review and recap each episode of the season to tell us the truth about the way things really were and what they think of the therapy process.

Last night’s sixth episode was a juxtaposition of maturity, with both Alex and Tiny bearing their most traumatic childhood memories. And Courtney? Well, Courtney sat in Group Therapy and as usual spouted her pageantese about her pretty, perfect, prior pressure-free life. Going into this experience, Alex and I certainly discussed issues that might arise but these were mostly to do with problems of communicating that we’d been having between us and neither of us expected the curve ball that Dr. Jenn threw that morning in Group. For Alex’s thoughts, click here. Read more…

Hurricanes And Horns: One VH1 Blogger’s Sandy Tale


Because this is the VH1 Blog and I am not a VH1 star, I almost never write about me here. However, I live in New York City and endured the scary, destructive force of nature that was Hurricane Sandy this weekend and thought I’d share my story which started off as maybe one of the scariest moments of my life, and ended with one of the funniest. (Sandy is obviously not funny to the vast majority of those who endured it, at the end of this post, check here for a couple ways you can help or donate to relief efforts.) Read more…

Dr. Jenn On Couples Therapy Episode 6: This Was Very Lord Of The Flies

Dr. Jenn Couples Therapy

Couples Therapy seeks to repair the relationships of couples who have spent significant time in the spotlight, and season two is going to bring the drama in ways that season one never dreamed. Dr. Jenn Berman will be speaking to us each week to help us make sense of the couples’ issues and shed light on why they need her help. This week we talk about Dr. Jenn’s reaction to Tiny‘s confession of abuse, Courtney‘s thwarting of the dress code, and the immature way the rest of the house handled Courtney and Doug‘s departure.

Once again, this episode is dominated by Courtney and Doug’s drama.

The dress code drama, yes. But to me, the group therapy was dominated by Tiny and Alex. I think that Tiny is one of the bravest women I have ever met, and for her to talk about what happened to her in this forum was unbelievably courageous. Read more…
