We’ve already discovered the fan-made tributes to Carla and Big Ang on the Internet thus far, but here’s another homage to the show as a whole. Call it the “Mob Wives Rap” if you will. The video is made by G Fella and it’s spliced with scenes from the show, and includes samples from Rock Mafia‘s catchy theme song “The Big Big Bang,” and it’s totally stuck in our head for the day.

After spending weeks watching Paul Scheer and Rob Huebel prepare for their hosting gig, the 17th Annual Critics’ Choice Movie Awards came and went so quickly. Still, that’s not to say that it wasn’t an action-packed evening full of surprises. It’s no shock that fan favorites like The Artist and The Help did well tonight, with The Artist snatching up the awards for Best Picture, Best Director, Best Costume Design, and Best Score (sorry, Kim Novak), and The Help earning statues in the Best Ensemble category, as well as for Best Actress (Viola Davis) and Best Supporting Actress (Octavia Spencer). Rounding out the acting categories, George Clooney won Best Actor for his role in The Descendants, and Christopher Plummer earned a Best Supporting Actor statue for The Beginners. To see the full list of winners, check out our list after the jump.
Basketball Wives star Evelyn Lozada made an appearance at Big Boy’s Neighborhood today, and during her chat with the radio show, she talked about a little of everything. If you follow her on Twitter, you know she’s still chugging full-steam ahead with the sale of her “Non MF Factor” T-shirts, and she said sales are still going strong with those. More importantly though, Evelyn talked about that huge engagement ring she’s got from fiance Chad Ochocinco (check out the photo we got of her ring during the Basketball Wives livestream here). When Big Boy mentioned the size, she responded “He wanted to make sure I said yes.” Read more…
While we were doing our daily Twitter-stalking of our favorite reality stars, we came across this photo of Renee Graziano hanging with Jersey Shore star Sammi “Sweetheart” Giancola and thought we’d share. Sammi and Renee had apparently never met before, so Sammi tweeted the following message along with the shot above to the mob wife: @reneegraziano so nice meeting you, you are beautiful! Xoxo. It reminds us of the timeDrita and Snooki hung out…can we hope for a crossover episode??
“I met you, you went into prison at eighteen years old, you came home at twenty two. We were married two years later. We were kids,” Renee tells Junior in this clip from the upcoming episode of Mob Wives. Renee and Junior have had a l-o-n-g relationship that would be best described as “It’s Complicated” but they’re moving forward and trying to work things out. But for Renee, it’s hard to get past the one glaring issue in their relationship. “Junior’s cheating began before we even got married,” she tells us. That could be hard to move past!
We actually have two sneaks this week, so check out this clip featuring Karen as she receives a phone call from Ramona with some bad news after you watch this one.
Mob Wives airs Sunday night at 8 p.m. ET/PT. Read more…
I just saw The Artist and thought that the Jack Russell terrier from that film was the best animal on screen from the past year, but guys, I was totally wrong. Because the best animal actor is Cocoa Rodriguez, the war horse from, you know, War Horse. In this clip from tonight’s Critics’ Choice Movie Awards, Paul Scheer and Rob Huebel conduct a pretty in-depth interview with Cocoa and, well, I think I have a new celebrity crush. Watching Cocoa discuss his work is inspiring, as is the clip from his latest film, set in a prison.
For more with Cocoa, Rob, and Paul, tune into the CCMA’s tonight at 8 p.m. ET/PT on VH1. Read more…
This week on Love and Hip Hop, the girls are back from their explosive trip to Miami, and Yandy is trying to figure out what actually went down in the aftermath of her fight with Chrissy. In this sneak peek from episode 9, she’s meeting up with Olivia and Emily to understand Chrissy’s side and it’s safe to say she’s not getting it. Later, Erica Mena (yes, she’s still around) takes her fight with Kimbella to a whole new level when she tells Vibe what happened during their fight. “I decided to become a Bronx b—h and snuff her,” she says. “I think I mentioned that she was a joke and even her man laughs at her, probably with the next b—h.” Yeah, those are fighting words. Watch the clip above and then check the full episode Monday at 8 p.m. ET/PT to see how Kimbella and Yandy handle all that drama. Read more…
One of the best parts about working here in the VH1 offices is the fact that a morning talk show films right down the hall from us, and we’re psyched that it’s coming back in two weeks after a restful holiday break. VH1′s Big Morning Buzz Live will be returning on Monday, January 30th at 10a.m. ET/PT. New year, new guests, new attitude. (What, don’t all morning shows have catchy slogans like that??)
THERE IS A WHOLE NEW YEAR TO BUZZ ABOUT AS
“BIG MORNING BUZZ LIVE” WITH HOST CARRIE KEAGAN RETURNS
MONDAY, JANUARY 30th AT A NEW TIME 10:00AM ET/PT
In honor of Big Ang Week on the VH1 Blog, we’re posting regularly about our new favorite reality star, Angela “Big Ang” Raiola, who debuted on Mob Wives on New Year’s Day and has been buzzed about ever since. I spoke to her this week to find out what her deal is and how she feels about being thrust into the limelight (she’s not that surprised by her fame, telling me “I had a feeling it was gonna blow up.”) First things first, her laugh. It’s as amazing in real life as it is on TV. Second of all, she isn’t shy about talking about plastic surgery, although she admits that while watching Renee have her procedure, she had to cover her eyes. Third, her description of her breasts’ and their evolution is the greatest thing I’ve ever heard. You’ll have to read it to believe it.
Olivia Longott is a busy woman, but we’re so lucky and thrilled that she’s going to be giving us some exclusive episode commentary every week during this season of Love And Hip Hop.
Sorry for the delay guys, I’ve been on the road working but you know I had to check in with my weekly recap. Let’s first start with the Jimmy/Chrissy proposal. I thought it was great — a long time coming and I’m very happy for them both. True love is hard to find, and I think those two have it in each other. Kudos to Jim, he did the right thing.
Kim and Erica…I don’t know what to make of it. I would think there is enough money and magazines for the both of them. That beef seems trivial and silly if you ask me, so I won’t waste to much time on it, ’cause clearly I don’t know the true origins.
The Chrissy and Yandy beef is serious, and I would hope that they can figure this out ’cause it’s sad where this has gone and scary where it can go. We all need a sit down so we can repair this if its reparable.
Now to me…I’m very excited the new single is #2 on iTunes and we’re shooting the video very soon. I’m so happy you guys get to see me singing and doing it the way I’ve always wanted to, and the fact that it’s being received well makes me even happier. And as far as Teairra and Rico, Ima make music with or without him, I would love to work with himm, but my life won’t end if I don’t. I’m not here to create conflict with anyone, I’m just gonna do me with Rich by my side and God willing see them at the top.
