Earlier today we posted a shot from Evelyn Lozada‘s Maxim photo spread, and we found a few more for you to gaze at in awe. (To look at the entire gallery, head over to Maxim.) We hate to throw around a word like “fierce” because it tends to be overdone, but seriously? These pictures are FIERCE in the best way possible (and they’ve inspired me to do some sit-ups as soon as possible).
There’s a lot going on today in the Basketball Wives world, consider this post a little roundup of gossip blowing in from the warm Miami shoreline. First up is this intriguing Tweet that Tami Roman just posted a few minutes ago. In it, she writes “Season 4 BBW so many twists and turns! You guys aren’t going to believe what “TRUTHS” come to light. EPIC!”
Slightly cryptic, not detailed at all, but kudos to her for causing my imagination to RUN WILD right now. Did something happen on the set today? Are things just generally crazy as always? What’s going onnnn?
Next up, Jennifer Williams gave another interview recently where she explained what she thinks is the root of her drama with Evelyn. It’s no secret that their friendship has been on the rocks recently and you’ll definitely see where it goes as soon as the new season begins (February 20!). But in this interview, Jennifer says that it wasn’t her criticism of Chad Ochocinco that led to the rift. She says:
“Let me tell you what she’s mad over ‘cause this always comes up. She hates the fact that I’m really good friends with NeNe [Leakes], and she hates the fact that me and Mashonda are good friends. I feel like it’s all coming from a place of hurt, and she’s turning it into anger. Why do you care who I’m friends with? Like, that’s ridiculous. I live in New York. You live in Miami. I don’t care who you hang out with. I’m kinda over it because I just feel like I’m at a point at my life where I’m trying to get rid of negative energy,” she said. “To me, I feel like it’s something so minuscule. It’s not like I slept with Chad. It’s not something irreparable. It’s something stupid that you’re mad over. If you really are mad because I have other friends, I think that’s completely ridiculous.”
We’re curious whether or not Evelyn will rebut that argument. But speaking of Evelyn, she’s in the news today as well because she is appearing in Maxim magazine. The Insider and Maxim have posted photos from her shoot (we have one, above) and quotes Ev as saying “I was so thrilled and honored to shoot with Maxim magazine. This was one of the most professional and best shoots I’ve ever had and it was truly exhilarating!” Lots going on with these women, it’s hard to keep up!
Back in December, we posted a video of a photo shoot that Love And Hip Hop star Emily Bustamante was involved with for KONTROL Magazine. In that video, we got a glimpse of Emily primping and posing for the camera in a couple different outfits, and now we have a few more of the pictures from that day. The red dress, by Michael Kors, looks amazing, but it’s impossible to pick which look is our fave.

Season two of Love And Hip Hop has come to a close, and there are still so many questions, so many things left hanging in the balance. One person whose story is definitely still unfolding is Kimbella. After numerous fights, a boyfriend who was in jail when last we saw her, and a new baby on the way, Kim has definitely had more than her share of drama and she spoke to Necole Bitchie about it. Here are some of the highlights from this great conversation. (Note, this interview was conducted before she announced her pregnancy so that topic doesn’t come up).
Kimbella on her thoughts about the show and how she came off: Of course it wasn’t what I expected. I don’t think there was any way I really could’ve been prepared for it but I’m really happy. But I do wish I wasn’t as nice as I was. I wish I would’ve shown my more aggressive side. People take my kindness for weakness. I don’t judge anybody. Basically people pre-judge me. And watching it, I realize I should’ve had my guard up with each individual. I’m not as nice as they made me seem. Anything that comes my way, I do not back down. I hold my own. I don’t care who you are, I’m gonna fight for who I am, take it or leave it. Some of the girls wanted to judge me and they didn’t know me and it’s pitiful.
On telling Emily about her tryst with Fab in the first episode: I came in there wanting to tell her, this was my second time seeing Emily. I knew she knew, I’d heard that she knew. So I wanted to tell her and just get it out in the open before someone else brought it up. I wanted her to hear it from me. And the thing is, what they don’t show you is Emily came to me later and said, ‘Thank you for telling me because I saw your name in his phone and I was gonna ask you about it.’
On her relationship with Chrissy after their fight: Chrissy wasn’t around. She stopped production for 3 weeks because she didn’t want to tape with me. So there was absolutely no relationship.
We’ve mentioned our fondness for the lovely Denise Vasi, the actress who has joined the cast of Single Ladies for season two, but right now we might be more jealous of her than anything. Vasi posted a few pictures to her Twitter account last night from a dinner where she was joined by her new co-star and on-screen love interest, William Levy. There’s a reason this guy was voted People En Espanol‘s Sexiest Man Alive in 2011. Good Lord. Pretty sure we’ve never seen as good-looking a couple as this. More hotness is below in our gallery, and to catch up on all the latest Vasi/Levy news, follow them on Twitter @denisevasi and @willylevy29.
And they all lived hapily ever after. Okay, some of them lived mostly okay ever after.
Rumors have been flying for the past couple of weeks with the news that someone in the Love And Hip Hop cast was pregnant. While Chrissy admitted in the season finale that she and Jim were going to try and start a family soon, and news outlets reported that Yandy was unequivocally with child (which she has denied), we learned the truth tonight, that the woman who is expecting is none other than Kimbella. Watch the clip above as Kim reveals the news to her parents and weigh in in our comments section with how you feel about her news. Are you happy for her or are you, like her mother, concerned for her because of her rocky relationship?
La La Anthony is a photogenic woman, even when she’s got on minimal makeup and a bathrobe. After seeing this photo collage that she posted to Facebook earlier today with the description “Fun pics,” we have to say that this woman makes lounging around the house look glamorous. La La is currently filming a new season of La La’s Full Court Life, which will return in March.
MTV’s Total Request Live was a huge part of our youth, and in this clip from the upcoming VH1 Rock Doc The TRL Decade, Carson Daly talks about how important the show was to aspiring musician Lady Gaga, too. Daly explains that during a recent interview with Gaga, she admitted that when she was a teenager, she and her friends went to Times Square with a sign reading “Carson, let me up!” and that seeing so many larger-than-life pop stars on the show is what drove her to become what she is now. Of course now he’s kicking himself for not letting her in.
