Laura Govan‘s caught a lot of flack for messing with Jackie Christie this season on Basketball Wives L.A., but she doesn’t mind the harsh labels people have slapped her with. When she visited Big Morning Buzz Live today, she told host Carrie Keagan of her “bully” reputation “I like it. I like it because it makes for good TV. BUT if you continue to watch the show, you’ll see later, like towards the end, I had my reasonings for the things that I did but I never, not one time, dogged the other girls out and I told them that.”
Laura also thoroughly explains how things played out and what her intentions with Chantel Christie were when they met. And as for whether or not she and Jackie will ever truly be friends…well, you’ll just have to watch the clip to see what she says. Basketball Wives L.A. airs Monday nights at 8 p.m. ET/PT.
Last night on Basketball Wives L.A., we learned that Brooke Bailey landed the cover of King Magazine, and today, we found out that another one of our favorite VH1 stars, Love And Hip Hop: Atlanta‘s K.Michelle, will also get her own cover on the magazine as well. The ladies will share cover model duties on the latest reality issue. We saw Brooke’s super-hot photo shoot on Basketball Wives, but now that both covers are out, we’re curious to find out which one you guys prefer…It’s a pretty hard contest to judge.
For any of you who are still thinking that Kenya Bell was trying to jack Jennifer Williams‘ style or anything else last season on Basketball Wives, we’d like to show off this photo of the two ladies palling around in New York City last night and looking like, you know, real friends. Jennifer stopped by the Grace Hotel to support Kenya, who was throwing a part to celebrate the release of her newest single. Kenya wrote on Instagram “Me and my boo iamjennifer NYC,” to which Jennifer replied “Never a dull moment!”
K.Michelle told Singer’s Room about her new deal, saying “I’m just really blessed to get a second chance. I have so much to sing about and so many stories to tell. I may not be the most polished or prissy R and B singer, but I do feel that I am the voice of a lot of women who don’t have a voice.”
Huge congrats to K.Michelle, we can’t wait to hear her new music! Will you guys be listening?
Every week, we follow the Twitter movement of the cast of Basketball Wives L.A. carefully, knowing that they usually live-tweet during the show. Last night almost all of the ladies had something to say about the latest episode, and it ranged wildly from lots of “I love you”s and support for Brooke and her magazine cover, to outrage at Jackie‘s black outfit at the white party, and Laura and Bambi‘s disagreement over Jackie. The tweets are many this week, but click through the gallery below to see all our faves.
One of the central themes we’ve seen on VH1′s reality roster this year is the hard, street-tough rapper who’s trying hard to reconcile his image with his home life (See: Jim Jones on Chrissy And Mr. Jones, Too Short on Couples Therapy). We spoke to Tiffney Cambridge this week to hear about her own experience on this matter, since she’s currently engaged to Game, and the couple just filmed their reality show, Marrying The Game about the process of planning their wedding. One of the main themes of the series, in addition to the cake-tasting and dress-trying-on, has to do with reconciling the differences between The Game and the man behind the persona, Jayceon Taylor. We spoke to Tiffney about the series, their relationship, and what Jim Jones had to say about all of this.
Congratulations on the show! I’ve lived through the wedding planing process, so I’m looking forward to seeing you guys go through it, It can be good, bad and very ugly sometimes. What was the best part of planning for you?
The best part was finding my wedding coordinator to help me out! When I first started planning, I was basically doing everything by myself, I had not found the right person to help me plan, so I can say that the best part of it is when I found Christie Rose and she took over and helped me get through the process of planning a wedding.

There’s not a whole lotta love between Courtney Stodden, Doug Hutchison, and the rest of the Couples Therapy cast, and the cast has not held their tongues when it comes to what they really think about Dourtney’s relationship. This past week on the show, we were also introduced to Krista Stodden, Courtney’s mom, who discussed her fondness for Doug with Dr. Jenn, and even said that he possesses the characteristics she herself looks for in a man, which set a lot of people off, for good reason, includingNik Richie. Nik posted the following tweet to his account after the show:
Obviously, that didn’t go over great with Courtney and Doug, and Courtney responded with a challenge. Read more…
Each week after Rehab With Dr. Drew, we’ll be talking to some of the staff on hand at the Pasadena Recovery Center to find out everything that went down in front of and behind the camera with this season’s group of patients. This week we spoke to our friend Jennifer Gimenez, the resident technician at the facility who has battled demons on her own, who’s incredibly proud of this season’s group of patients and explains
