Love And Hip Hop: Atlanta Season Finale Sneak Peek: Slut Bucket

Erica and Scrappy have spent the entire season of Love And Hip Hop: Atlanta being on different pages of their relationship, but it seems like at long last, they’re on the same page. Sadly, it’s the wrong page. They both want to be a family unit and co-parent their daughter, but at this point, they decide that they’re not ready for a committed relationship. Not to mention the fact that Erica still can’t deal with Scrappy’s indiscretions with that “slut bucket,” Shay.

In the sneak peek above, watch the couple hash out their relationship issues, and then tune in to the finale when it airs on Monday night at 8 p.m. ET/PT.

Only problem is how competitive they are about their generosity. In this promo for the Do Something! Awards, watch them throw down after Lamorne gets a little too competitive with Jake.

The 2012 Do Something! Awards air Tuesday, August 21 at 9 p.m. ET/PT, and hopefully these guys won’t fight as much onstage as they do here.

T.I. made the rounds yesterday to promote, well, himself, the man has like ten things going on at once (a new book, a guest spot on Boss, a new album in the works, and of course, The Family Hustle). We loved this segment he taped last night with Jimmy Fallon where the two discussed what T.I. and Tiny did to celebrate their second anniversary, what Tip bought Tiny as a gift (a Rolls Royce — not bad!), and what it’s like to take a hot air balloon ride (T.I. was not impressed). Check out the clip above as Tip and Jimmy shoot the breeze, and tune into T.I. And Tiny: The Family Hustle when it premieres September 3 at 9 p.m. ET/PT.

Who’s The Fairest Do Something! Awards Host Of All?

On second thought, maybe it wasn’t the best idea to have the men of New Girl host the 2012 Do Something! Awards as a group package.

Watch them duke it out in this promo, and tune in to the 2012 Do Something! Awards air on Tuesday, August 21 at 9 p.m. ET/PT on VH1.
