Every Monday night, we’ve been scouring Twitter to find some of the best tweets sent by the cast of Love And Hip Hop: Atlanta to serve as a sort of cast commentary of the show. Last night we were hoping we’d get some bonus material from Joseline and Mimi to help us fill in the blanks of where their relationship stands, but unfortunately they were both mum on that topic. But one of the prevailing themes we noticed among the cast who was actively tweeting was that the truth will all come out on the reunion episode.
Check out our gallery of the best tweets of the night to see what’s in store at the reunion, what Rasheeda thinks now that she’s watched her fight with Kirk play back, oh yeah, check out some of Benzino‘s hilarious but sweet lessons for love. That Karlie Redd must be one lucky lady. To follow the cast on Twitter, check out the VH1 Love And Hip Hop list to make sure you’re not missing anyone.

After reaching an acting “plateau” in his native England, Single Ladies star Ricky Whittle, who plays the sexy, guitar-playing Charles on the show, says he wanted to move to Hollywood to be in the “epicenter” of the acting world. Whittle was famous across the pond for his roles on the insanely popular Hollyoaks soap opera and, like several other Single Ladies leading men such as William Levy, Romeo Miller, and Rick Fox, he appeared on Britain’s version of Dancing With The Stars, called Strictly Come Dancing.
In a recent interview, Whittle spoke to FanBolt about his stint on Single Ladies and what he loved about being on the show, from the sex scenes to the catering. We pulled some of our favorite snippets from the interview, plus a few bonus photos of the very sexy, very muscle-y man, below.
On Hollywood Exes this week, Jessica, Mayte and Andrea head to a singles mixer to find their dream men. “A room full of handsome men,” Andrea declares. “You can smell the testosterone, YES!” Except…NO. The selection of guys isn’t really up to their standards. “They look like the original serial killers,” she says. “They look like they teach classes on how to be serial killers. Girl, no. I’m not going nowhere with these men.” It can’t be that bad…can it? You’ll have to watch to find out.
Hollywood Exes airs Wednesday night at 9 p.m. ET/PT. Read more…
