Dr. Jenn Berman has been counseling people and offering advice to people in need for some twenty years now, but on VH1′s Couples Therapy, this marks her first time working with a group of ten celebrities whose relationships are in desperate need of repair. We’ll be checking in with Dr. Jenn each week to chat about the progress of her patients on the show, and what she really thinks of their behavior. We begin our behind the scenes look at the show this week with a brief chat about how she got her start as a therapist and then move on to the couples, and she fills us in on what’s really at the root of their problems. Plus, find out which couple she thinks has a love that’s “magical.”
Can you give me a little information about your background before we chat about the episode? I know some of our fans will recognize you from your appearance on Basketball Wives L.A. when you worked with Laura Govan, as well as all your other TV and radio appearances. Read more…
We know it can be hard to watch a show like House Of Consignment where there’s amazing fashion everyone and get wistful that your own closet just doesn’t measure up. That’s why we’re excited to tell you that Corri McFadden and the rest of her eDrop-Off team totally understood that viewers would want in on the eBay action, so they’ve held one item from every closet clean out that’s featured this season on the show, and that piece will be placed in an auction that goes live immediately after every show. This week’s closet belonged to Karyn, and one of the items she parted with was this gorgeous Missoni dress. To bid on the dress, click here.
We’ve been toiling long and hard to determine which celebrity fights have had the most impact on our society, and tonight, the results are in. VH1 premieres the 40 Greatest Feuds tonight at 7 p.m. ET/PT. Watch as we count down the biggest arguments, online squabbles, and physical altercations throughout the years…It all leads up to one, final blowout. Can you guess who’s at number one?
It’s time once again to welcome Royce Reed back to the blog so she can tell it like it is. For the past two seasons of Basketball Wives, Royce has recapped every episode, all the highs and lows, and given us her completely honest and unfiltered opinion. We’re thrilled to have her back for season four. OK HERE WE GO!!! AGAIN, THIS IS MY BLOG AND I SAY WHAT I WANT WHEN I WANT AND HOW I WANT. IF YOU DON’T LIKE IT DON’T READ IT.
I know its a bit late but, hey, I’ve been really busy…I do work lol. This blog is pretty easy and straight to the point. Nothing really happened, drama-wise so there is no real “Ooooooh chiiiilllleee” moments to write about…well, until the end. Read more…
This season is bringing out the writer in everyone on Basketball Wives, that’s for sure. Between Jennifer and Evelyn‘s blogs, plus the regular recap that Royce posts for us here, we’re getting a ton of insider information and multiple sides to every storyline on the show, and for the past couple weeks, Tami Roman has thrown her two cents in on her website as well. So what’s Tami have to say about Monday night’s episode? Read for yourself. (As always, the ladies are verbose, so we have abbreviated this post and pulled some of the best quotes, but do yourself a favor and read the entire thing on Tami’s site.) Keep reading till the end, Tami definitely has some choice words not just for her cast mates but for her producers as well.
It’s Not My Job to Blog, BUT I’m going To Do It Anyway
Watching this episode made it official…it’s my turn to play the angry black woman. I don’t want to address to many things because I will see all of these ladies at the reunion and I’m much more of a face to face person, but here goes… Read more…
You may not know very much about Tashera Simmons at the moment, but if you tune in to Couples Therapy, which premieres tonight at 9 p.m. ET/PT on VH1, you’ll get an intimate look at the woman whose other half is rapper DMX. Tashera and DMX have known each other for an astonishing twenty five years (though they’ve been separated for six years), and in this interview with Cherry Martinez, she opens up about their relationship. Consider this interview like a primer before the show tonight. The issue with their relationship lies partially in the fact that her husband has fathered six children with other women while still married to Tashera, and still the woman is a picture of calm and grace. “Something about him just struck a chord with me,” Tashera says. “He’s all I’ve ever known.” Read more…
What’s it like being the wife of an A-list actor, singer, or athlete? Chances are, it’s a struggle to keep your relationship afloat and hold down a normal life when your husband has a high profile, and as a result, as we all know, plenty of Hollywood marriages end in divorce. But often it’s not until these wives come out from behind their ex-husbands shadows that you really get to know them, which is why we’re so excited for Hollywood Exes, VH1′s new series that promises a look inside the lives of some of the most high-profile wives in the business. To find out who will be a part of the cast and what to expect, read the press release and and view our photo gallery below. The show is slated to premiere this summer.
VH1 JOINS THE EX WIVES CLUB WITH “HOLLYWOOD EXES”
Nicole Murphy, Jessica Canseco, Sheree Fletcher, Mayte Garcia
and Andrea Kelly Are Set To Star
The Series Will Premiere In The Summer Of 2012 With 10 One-Hour Episodes
LOS ANGELES, CA (March 21, 2012) – They kept the homes fires burning while their husbands were topping the music charts and setting box offices ablaze worldwide. But now, as Hollywood’s A-List ex-wives, they must adjust their own courses without their former husbands and make a name for themselves in VH1′s new series “Hollywood Exes” (working title).
The series will star Nicole Murphy (ex wife of Eddie Murphy – 13 years), Jessica Canseco (ex wife of Jose Canseco – 4 years), Sheree Fletcher (ex wife of Will Smith – 3 years), Mayte Garcia (ex wife of Prince – 3 years), and Andrea Kelly (ex wife of R. Kelly – 12 years). “Hollywood Exes” will premiere in the summer of 2012 with 10 one-hour episodes.
Kesha Nichols swung by Big Morning Buzz Live today to chat with Carrie Keagan about being the new girl on Basketball Wives, which she says was like re-living the first day of high school all over again. Carrie got right into it with Kesha, asking her if she thinks Tami will ever apologize so that they can mend their relationship. “She will never apologize,” Kesha replied. “I’m sorry, I don’t think she’s the apologizing type.”
Just a quick reminder that today at 3 p.m. ET, we’ll be conducting a live chat with Royce Reed and fans are expected to log on with their web cameras (and if you don’t have one, you can send a question via instant message) to speak directly with the Basketball Wives star.
I sat down with Kesha Nichols this week to talk about her life as a basketball wife, and I think we had a great little chat. We took some photos of her for an upcoming post, we asked her about her most embarrassing childhood story (it’s a doozie), and of course we asked her what in the world is going on this season between all the women, and she was, much like she is on the show, honest, but not pot-stirring. She told me that filming wrapped on season four (an unprecedented twenty weeks of filming) this past weekend, so for now, she’s back in New York City, working on her dance company, Sugar and Spice, and enjoying the freedom that comes with the off-season. Of course, there’s always the reunion. We’ll get to that.
There’s been some drama online between Tami and Royce and I was wondering if you would talk about that and tell us how it’s affected you.
As far as Royce and Tami, I have nothing to do with their friendship and relationship. I have gone to Royce as a friend telling her my concerns, but I’ve never given her my opinion of Tami, I’ve never said anything bad about her. Royce is her own person, they have their own relationship, and she chooses to speak to Tami about Tami’s behavior, not for me, not because of me. Whatever is going on with them is between the two of them. Read more…
