Renee Graziano Appears On The View Today To Talk About Junior And Her Plastic Surgery Nightmare


Renee Graziano appeared on The View this morning to talk to Barbara Walters about all the drama in her life, like her surgery gone wrong and most recently, the saga with Junior. When she was asked if she could ever forgive Junior for cooperating with the government, she said “I forgive him for me, not for anything he’s done to my son or my father because if I couldn’t let go, then I’d never move on as a person.” Barbara is never one to shy away from the tough questions, so she got real for a second and asked Renee what’s the worst thing she’s dealt with this year. Watch the clip above for her response.

Basketball Wives Episode 9 Sneak Peek: A Day At The Races

This sneak peek of the new episode of Basketball Wives has basically every emotion you can imagine in it. Tami and her mom resume their conversation from last week which was pretty heavy stuff, and the tears keep on coming, but immediately after that, we finally see Royce and her new man, Dezmon, together and they couldn’t seem happier (could she be smiling any bigger??). And of course eventually we’ll get to that emotion we call “slapping someone,” but that won’t come until much later. Watch the sneak and tune in to the full episode Monday night at 8 p.m. ET/PT.

VH1 News correspondent Janell Snowden caught up with LisaRaye McCoy on the set of Single Ladies recently, and LisaRaye had a lot to chat about.

The B2B Mix Down, as LisaRaye calls it, is a weekend in St. Thomas for fans who just want to chill with her and her fellow VH1 stars Renee Graziano and Ramona Rizzo.

Talking Couples Therapy With Dr. Jenn Berman – Reichen And Rodiney Make Progress

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. This week on the show, Vienna had a breakthrough of her own, and everyone got a good look at how they really behave when they fight.

How do you feel about Vienna’s realization of the fact that she lacks a certain amount of empathy for people?

I’m really proud of her for having her insights. I think it will become clearer to viewers why she struggles with that as time goes on. As I’ve said before, she’s new to couples therapy and people don’t always realize that what’s good for one person in the couple is good for everyone in the couple and one person’s movement in therapy affects the whole couple in a positive way. It’s not uncommon for people to feel the way she felt though, especially coming from a competitive background. She and Kasey came from a competition show, and this is a therapy show.

Mob Wives Episode 13 Sneak Peek: “Junior Used Me”


It feels like forever since the last episode of Mob Wives, and this week it’s finally back. In these sneak peeks from Sunday’s episode, Renee is reeling from the discovery that Junior was using her for information. Above, she tells Drita that what he did goes beyond your typical informant behavior. What he did is “some sort of betrayal that’s way beyond anything.”

Meanwhile, Carla‘s not holding back about how she really feels about the situation, and she’s going in pretty hard on Renee. Mob Wives airs Sunday at 8 p.m. ET/PT.

Check Out Drita D’Avanzo As French Montana’s Getaway Driver In His Video For “Everything’s A Go” [NSFW]


If you’ve been following our blog over the past month or so, you’d know that Drita D’Avanzo recently spent a day filming a music video for one of her favorite singers, French Montana. Drita could hardly contain her excitement when she spoke to us about shooting it, and she bonded quickly with the Coke Boys on the set, which is where we were when we grabbed some amazing photos of everyone together. The video finally came out this week, and while there is a lot about it that’s NSFW (careful if you have delicate ears or don’t like seeing strippers in their natural habitat), Drita looks like she’s having a blast.

Royce Reed Recaps Basketball Wives Episode 8: Why Is It Cool To “Catch A Case” Or Be “About This Life”?


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.

Let me first start off by saying I find it quite flattering my other cast members are blogging. I say that because I seem to remember a lot of SHADE coming my way for 1. Having a Twitter and 2. Blogging. Now, they have more tweets and followers than I do and have opened their own blogs. I just want to say you’re welcome although you’ll never say thank you for bringing forth the idea. Moving on…

I said it last week and I was right. Instead of expressing how WRONG Evelyn was for throwing a bottle and a plate at someone’s head for a “word” there was a lot of laughing. Even more so, they condoned her actions. I’m confused…how are you speaking about someone else being crazy (although I think Kenya has a “side”) when you are always the one picking up glasses, bottles, plates, jumping across tables, etc. Pot MEET Kettle. Tami and Shaunie, you both knew Evelyn was wrong so rather than saying “Evelyn you would’ve killed that girl,” hence hyping Evelyn up, it should’ve been “You were dead ass wrong and you need to learn how to curb your anger and deal with things differently.” I love you Tami and I know you are upset with me, but at this point I don’t think you understand the fact I AM a real friend to you. No way would I let you react the way Evelyn has in my presence, nor would I condone it if I was or wasn’t there just to cosign for you. I would expect the same from you to me. THAT’S REAL! Right Wrong Bougie Bitch, I want my REAL friend/s to tell me what it really is. Why is it cool to “catch a case” or be “sbout this life” at 35+, or any age for that matter? Sitting behind bars isn’t cute and the same people cosigning you on Twitter saying “Thats my B!tch” are the same ones that will forget you exist the moment the commercials come on. Sidenote…I would’ve put my money on Kenya if they put y’all in a ring. She doesn’t have to “Talk about it,” I believe her eyes.
