Love And Hip Hop Episode 7 Sneak Peek: We Need Counseling

You don’t need me to tell you that Stevie J needs therapy, but we were thinking more solo than couples therapy, if anything. Mimi and he have decided that they’ll go see a counselor just to be able to sit in a room together without fighting in this week’s episode of Love And Hip Hop: Atlanta. The question is, will it make any difference at all in their relationship? And do they even want to be back together anyway? Watch the clip above to see what Mimi thinks when she meets with K.Michelle, and tune into the episode on Monday at 8 p.m. ET/PT to see what actually happens when they finally sit on the therapist’s couch.

Single Ladies Episode 10 Sneak Peek: Check The Mirror, Honey

We just knew this would happen. Last week on Single Ladies, Malcolm and Keisha met up so that he could tell her he missed her and wanted to start over, and this week, Malcolm’s fiancee, Taylor, discovered them together. Except that the compromising position they’re in isn’t a personal one, rather, Keisha has agreed to help Malcolm with a real estate deal, but that certainly doesn’t matter to Taylor, that girl will get upset about anything. Watch the sneak peek now and tune in to Single Ladies when it airs Monday night at 9 p.m. ET/PT.

VH1 Blog Special Report: Big Morning Buzz Live‘s Jason Dundas Visits The Do Something! Awards Finalists

Jason Dundas Do Something Awards

This week, the VH1 Blog has been excited to partner up with VH1′s Big Morning Buzz Live correspondent Jason Dundas, who recently spent his summer vacation traveling the world to meet the young finalists who are all competing for the $100,000 grand prize at the Do Something! Awards. The show, which will air on Tuesday, August 21 at 9 p.m. ET/PT, features celebrities and “normal” folk alike who are all putting forth serious effort to make the world a better place, and Jason met them all, took pictures and video of his journey, and created a spectacular post for us chronicling his time with them. Here’s Jason in his own words and photos.

I was lucky enough to spend the last three weeks traveling the world interviewing the five finalists for the 2012 VH1 Do Something Awards: Manyang Kher (Humanity Helping Sudan Project), Meg Bourne (Art Feeds), Katia Gomez (Educate2Envision International), Seth Maxwell (The Thirst Project), and Danny Mendoza (Together We Rise).

Mimi Admits She Sits Back And Watches Love And Hip Hop “In Awe” Every Week

Mimi Faust is proof that Love and Hip Hop: Atlanta is anything but scripted, if you ask me. This is a woman whose life is basically going through the rockiest time a persona can imagine, learning that the man she loves for over a decade, the man she shares a child with, cheated and impregnated another woman and has proven himself to be a liar and, in her words, a “monster.”

In this interview Mimi did with TT Torrez recently, she explains that she watches the show like everybody else and is just as surprised by what she sees as we are. She also has some serious doubts about whether or not Stevie and Joseline are really getting married. Here are our five favorite quotes and things we learned from the interview, which you can listen to in full above.

  • Here’s what Mimi says her reaction is to the show every Monday night: “My mouth is on the floor most of the time like ‘Are you serious?’”
  • Joseline’s code name in Stevie J’s phone was Big Homey. “I didn’t go through his phone, I just knew Big Homey was calling him all the damn time.”
  • “Still to this day, I’m still getting ‘That’s just my artist,’” Mimi says of Stevie’s denial that he and Joseline are together.
  • *Crickets* That’s the sound we heard when Mimi was asked if she’d ever get back together with Stevie. Ohhhh boy. She’s leaving it open-ended? How??
  • “Oh, God. Come on. Stop it.” That’s Mimi’s answer to the question of whether or not Joseline and Stevie are getting married. So we’ll put that in the “no” column of our debate.

Pic Of The Day: Tami Roman Posts A Hilarious Outtake From The Basketball Wives Promo Shoot

Basketball Wives Photo Outtake

This picture has been making us laugh for the last ten minutes. If you recall, last December we were on the scene when the original Basketball Wives cast shot their glamorous promotional shots for season four in Miami, and while the final products came out beautifully, we had never seen any of the rejected shots…until now. Tami Roman posted this hilarious pic on her Instagram feed today with the caption “Funny as hell behind the scenes shot of last years BBW shoot. Jennifer look like “This sucks”-Shaunie look like “What the hell have I done to deserve this”-Evelyn look like “I’m ready to go” and I look like, “That will get you popped” LMFAOOOOOOO.” Last season was pretty entertaining, but this photo might actually be one of our favorite highlights of the whole show.
