“Miley Cyrus Needs A Little Stevie J In Her Life,” Says Stevie J

Love And Hip Hop VH1 Divas

We caught up with the cast of Love And Hip Hop: Atlanta this past week to find out what they were most looking forward to at the VH1 DIVAS show this Sunday night (airing live at 9 PM ET/PT!). But as always, we got sidetracked by one Mr. Steven J. While all the other stars of the show were most excited for performances from Kelly Rowland, Ledisi, and Pitbull, Stevie J explained that he’s a Miley Cyrus kinda guy. He told VH1 “I wanna see Miley Cyrus, I love her edgy style and her performances, she needs Stevie J in her life.” Of course. Of COURSE. Miley needs to get on that bus, y’all!

While everyone in the cast is excited for DIVAS, they’ve also got their own holiday special to look forward to, so tune in to Love And Hip Hop Atlanta: Dirty Little Secrets at 8 p.m. ET/PT on Sunday, followed immediately by DIVAS. Otherwise known as the television block where Miley will realize her Stevie J. destiny.

Mimi Faust says: “The lineup is great! There are a lot that I am looking forward to seeing. I definitely want to see Ledisi, Melanie Fiona, and Pitbull. I love watching Ciara perform!

K.Michelle says: “I would like to see Kelly Clarkson and Ledisi. I love their voices.”

If you missed out on her big announcement, we’ve got a clip of her discussing it with us above.

This online-only event can be seen on the DIVAS site, and will feature Jackie talking to many of the celebs who will be performing on the show, plus some of your favorite VH1 personalities, like Renee Graziano who mentions she’ll be in attendance. (But will Laura Govan make an appearance? That’s what we’re hoping for…)

The Reunion Interview: Jackie Christie On Being The Subject Of Backhanded Compliments, Revenge Schemes And The Name “Tacky Jackie”

Basketball Wives L.A. Reunion Jackie
On season two of Basketball Wives L.A., Jackie Christie came off as more victim than manipulator, which is a title she received after season one when it appeared that she was trying to create drama with the rest of the cast. This year, Jackie was the target of a scheme concocted by Laura which never quite panned out, but it certainly earned her some sympathy and even the loyalty from some of her fiercest season one detractors, like Draya. In our reunion interview, Jackie discusses the negativity that’s often directed at her (“I choose not to play the pit-pat game ’cause I could tear ‘em apart from top to bottom, but I don’t want to do that,” she says when she hears the girls take digs at her age or call her “Tacky Jackie.”) Jackie’s having the last laugh now though, because not only is her fashion line a huge success, but she’s just been tapped to host the VH1 DIVAS red carpet livestream this Sunday night at 8 p.m. ET/PT (you can watch it here). Not so tacky after all, huh? Our chat with Jackie is below.

How do you feel this season compared to last season?

Last season I was very disappointed, I was shocked, I couldn’t believe what was happening, because I knew I wasn’t in the wrong. And this season I think more or less it all started panning out and everyone getting to see that I’m not this back stabbing troublemaker that they kind of thought last year, so that’s good. But then the down side is I found out that a friend that I thought was my friend, which is Laura, really isn’t. So that’s hurtful and there’s a lot of stuff I want to clear up with her. And then of course the situation with Brooke, I just want the world to know that me having that altercation with her is something that I really do regret and it’s in the past. I hope we can move forward in future depending on how things go.

A Few Backstage Photos Of Renee Graziano, Yandy Smith, And Jackie Christie From The Big And Best Of 2012

Big And Best Of 2012

You know how the Grinch’s heart grew three sizes the day he landed in Whoville? I think that’s how everyone at VH1 felt today after our Reality Roundtable panel discussion with Yandy Smith, Renee Graziano, and Jackie Christie. We all liked these ladies before, but now that it’s over and we got to work closely with them, listen to them gush about their kids, and get along famously with one another, we looove them. We’ll be posting some footage from our roundtable discussion (where we got to some juicy info about drama on Mob Wives season three and the ladies’ unanimous love for Stevie J, plus an announcement from Jackie that she’ll be hosting on the red carpet at this year’s VH1 DIVAS concert Sunday night!), but for now, here are a few photos of the trio backstage.
