Grammy Award-winning band Train will be hosting an intimate performance as a tribute for one very special New jersey town that was hit by Hurricane Sandy, and VH1 is proud to air clips from their performance on Christmas Day. “Christmas In Sea Bright” came to be when one Train fan sent the group a message showing them how hard-hit her hometown of Sea Bright, NJ was after Hurricane Sandy. As a result of 15-year-old Christine Nagy’s video message, Train will be performing a private show in Sea Bright tomorrow for some of New Jersey’s first responders to the storm, which will benefit local relief efforts. VH1 is proud to be a part of the show, for more information on how you can watch and contribute, read on.

You know by now that each week, we keep tabs on all the things the cast of Basketball Wives L.A. tweets about while they watch their show, and this week was a relatively quite one, at least compared to recent weeks. However, Draya and Bambi kept things interesting with their commentary, especially with regard to the girls’ New Orleans trip. Check out their live tweets from tonight’s show below.
Eve visited Sway on the set of RapFix Live last week, and inevitably, the conversation turned to her one-time love, Stevie J. “You don’t get tired of answering this, do you?” Sway asked when he brought up Stevie. “No,” she laughed, and then when Sway asked if she was surprised by the success of Love And Hip Hop: Atlanta, she responded “You know, people like train wrecks.”
During their relationship, the couple made a sex tape which Stevie claims he did not publicly release (and in fact, he accuses one of Eve’s friends of releasing it), and after watching a clip of Stevie talking about the tape, she told Sway “When that happened, sex tapes weren’t ‘hot’ like that, and I got the FBI involved. So that’s not something I even wanted to happen. How ever it got out, it got out, I don’t know who did it…but I respect my mother and my family and that’s not something I am OK with. And it hurt my heart that anyone who was in my circle — whether it be him [Stevie] or anybody else — it hurt my heart that that went out there. That wasn’t my thing.” Watch her talk about Stevie in the clip above, and for even more on the topic, you can also watch Eve address the sex tape issue in her Behind The Music special.

OnCouples Therapy, Courtney Stodden‘s signature look, which she was very protective and defensive of, was a sun-kissed, blonde, California-girl kind of thing, but we noticed she’s looking a little different these days. Yes, she’s still opting for lucite shoes and clothing that forms a metallic second skin, but from the neck up, she’s made some changes. Some might even say she’s taking a cue from her co-star Shayne Lamas, whose bleached blonde hair, pale complexion, and red lips were a signature for her on the show. Stodden denies having any kind of plastic surgery but it’s undeniable that she’s made some changes to her appearance since leaving therapy. Check out the gallery below from the weekend for more evidence and let us know what you think of her look in the comments!
At long last, the moment of truth. For four night’s we’ve counted down the 100 Greatest Kid Stars here on VH1 and tonight, the number one star was revealed and his name is Justin Bieber. Biebs had some tough competition, fending off that perennial fave, Macaulay Culkin (#2), the Olsen twins (#3 and #4), and Harry Potter himself, Daniel Radcliffe, at number five. In the end though, Bieber just has that certain something that edged out the rest. It was probably the hair.
