Watch A Sneak Peek From The Mob Wives Season Premiere: “Mob Knives”

This season on Mob Wives picks up pretty much where we left off. The ladies are still dealing with the blow back from last season, and in this sneak peek, Renee is a bit on edge after a break-in at her house. “The truth is, after Junior cooperated with the government, I feel very unsafe in this house,” she says. “After somebody cooperates, the family usually feels some sort of wrath for that. It’s part of the game.” The question this season is, will there be more wrath felt from outside parties, or will the women cause enough amongst themselves to keep things interesting? We’ll have to wait and see.

Mob Wives premieres Sunday night at 8 p.m. ET/PT.

Somaya Reece Is Hot
Somaya Reece may not be returning to Love And Hip Hop when the third season of the show comes back on Monday, January 7th at 8 p.m., (sad face), but the girl still knows how to keep herself in our sights. Somaya has been hustling constantly, making her music, handling her businesses, and working out hard in the gym — the physical transformation this woman has made is incredible and inspiring.

Pic Of The Day: K.Michelle And Miley Cyrus, Two Divas Hangin’ Out At Rite Aid

K.Michelle Miley Cyrus

We always knew K.Michelle was a diva, we just didn’t realize that birds of a feather stick together so literally. In this photo posted to Instagram around Christmas, K.Michelle ran into VH1 Divas star Miley Cyrus at the drug store (stars…they’re just like us!) and she captioned it “2 Chicks who give 0 f**ks. Love her @mileycyrus Real chicks shop at Rite Aid.” Yes, they do.

Love That Love And Hip Hop Theme Song? Download It Now On iTunes!

Download The Love And Hip Hop Theme Song

We might be biased, but one of the things that we love most about VH1 shows is the fact that the theme songs are kind of awesome. (We had Mob Wives‘ “The Big, Big Bang” in our head for pretty much all of 2011 and we still love that one.) One of our all-time favorites though, is the Love And Hip Hop theme, “This Is The Life,” and now the song is available for download on iTunes!

For more info about the song, by Lofey, featuring Cardan, MeetSims and Travis McClung and how it came to be, read on after the jump. Love And Hip Hop season three premieres Monday night at 8 p.m. ET/PT. Read more…

Pic Of The Day, Stars Without Makeup Edition: La La’s Natural Beauty

La La Anthony No Makeup

It’s official: La La Anthony can’t take a bad photo. In this shot that she posted to Instagram, she’s seen hanging out, sans makeup, with her pals Eva Longoria and Loren Ridinger (who is, ironically, her business partner in the Motives for La La makeup line). La writes “New Years Resolution..no makeup..no filter..LOL…girls night recovering with @evalongoria & @lorenridinger #love”

Now we can’t decide if La La is more beautiful with or without makeup. What do you think?

About Those Hand-Holding Pics Of Evelyn And Chad, Ev Explains: “We Are Still Separated”

Evelyn Chad Spotted Together

Last night the internet was set on fire when some photos of Evelyn Lozada and ex-husband Chad Ochocinco were spotted holding hands and attending a dinner together. Before the speculation could get too far out of control (Are they back together? Did she really move back into his house?), Evelyn took to her blog today to discuss the situation and put a few of the rumors to bed. On her website today, in a post labeled “About Last Night,” she wrote:

I wanted to wish you a happy and safe New Year and take time to address a few rumors and unanswered questions about last night. It seems as though things have gotten a wee bit out of control.

I attended a dinner with Chad’s daughter, not only because I love baby girl like my own, but to support Chad and his fan appreciation dinner. While at the dinner, several photos popped up on the Internet of Chad and I holding hands, while in the process of blessing the food. The blogs made last night seem as though, we walked hand and hand into the restaurant announcing a reunion, which wasn’t the case.

I care for Chad, we are friends and we love one another, however, we are still separated, not living under the same roof and working on ourselves because we have a long way to go. This is a normal and realistic process for anyone and I don’t know what the future holds for me, but I know God holds it and I’m taking things one day at a time. I appreciate the love from so many of you and right now I’m still working on becoming a better person. Chad and I are attending therapy separately, meeting with a Life Coach and trying to figure out how to work on our individual selves and navigate through this entire ordeal.

I wanted you to hear this from me and only me because I would rather you know the truth, than assume.

So there you have it. You can put your speculations aside and enjoy your 2013 knowing that there’s still some love there, but like everyone, they’re works in progress. For now, though, there’s nothing new to report.

The Basketball Wives L.A. Ladies Offer An Expectant Mom Some Motherly Advice


Motherhood is a big deal to all the ladies of Basketball Wives L.A., and the fact that it played a fairly significant role in this season’s storyline, I felt like it was only appropriate to bring up the subject with the ladies. See, I, your friendly VH1 blogger, am pregnant with my first child, and at the time of the Basketball Wives L.A. reunion I was entering my glowy second trimester and wanted to hear what kinds of advice these ladies would offer an expectant mother. (The entire cast, with the exception of Bambi, has children, but don’t you worry, Bambi’s advice was SO Bambi.)

Before you go off and criticize them or ask me why I’d take advice from a reality star, let me just say that I was surprised at how thoughtful all the ladies’ answers were and appreciate their enthusiasm for me and my still-unnamed baby. Here’s what they told me when I asked for their number one tip for a new mom. Read more…
