Tough Talk With Steve Ward: Episode 6

Steve Ward Tough Love
Master Matchmaker Steve Ward is back for another season of Tough Love, and each week, he’ll be giving us an exclusive look at what went down behind the scenes on the series. This week, Steve was interested in seeing how well the ladies could smile in the face of adversity, and even thinks Donna has a knack for comedy.

So what did you think of all the comedy sets the women did? Was there anyone who actually surprised you with how funny they were?

Oh, Donna, she’s fantastic. You didn’t even see the half of it, she did an impersonation of her mom, Sheila, and that was edited down, but she was really fantastic. And believe it or not, Stephanie really rose to the occasion and did a great job. Elizabeth did a great job, Despina was hilarious. The jokes were all really funny, but I distinctly remember how great Donna was. I really think she could make a second career out of this, that’s how good she was. Read more…

The Mob Wives Reunion Sneak Peek: Ramona Lights Drita’s Fuse And It’s About To Go Off


Here’s a helpful hint: If you want to stay friends with Drita D’Avanzo and not be on the receiving end of her right hook, don’t mention anything about her being a mother. Because as you can see in this sneak peek from this Sunday’s Mob Wives reunion episode, the moment Ramona tells her “I may not like you, but you’re still a mother,” Drita’s eyes go from brown to black like a shark’s, and she’s ready to go full Jaws on Ramona, with the goal of tearing her to pieces.

And in a second sneak peek, below, Carla gets into it with Karen which leads Karen to drop a bomb that shocks Renee and causes her to walk out. Just when you thought everyone was getting along, right??

Part one of the Mob Wives reunion airs this Sunday at 8 p.m. ET/PT.

The Best Of Mob Wives Season Two: Karen Gravano Is Coming For You


Between her book deal, her spa opening, and the possible rekindling of her romance with David, Karen Gravano‘s life this season had a lot of ups. The fighting with Drita, however, was a major downer. This epic season of Mob Wives seems to stretch so far back, we’ve forgotten about some of these scenes, so here they are in one tidy playlist, so we can all relive them once again.

Part one of the Mob Wives reunion special airs this Sunday at 8 p.m. ET/PT.

    Tami Roman Deletes Her Twitter Page

    Tami Roman Basketball Wives
    Royce Reed isn’t the only one to take a break from social networking. Tami Roman has been conspicuously absent from Twitter this week, and today she posted a message to her Facebook page explaining that she and her daughters quit the site for the time being as a result of floods of negativity after this week’s Basketball Wives.

    She writes:

    I deactivated my twitter for the time being because I have been blessed with a wonderful opportunity to work with phenomenal actors on a new television show. I didn’t want to wake up to the continual negativity from a mistake made over four months ago, which I have openly acknowledged and apologized for to overshadow the blessing of this moment. I plan to reactivate my twitter when a formal announcement has been made about this new opportunity with the hopes of putting BasketBall Wives behind me.

    So, like Royce, who has reactivated her Twitter page but has been more scarce on the site this week than usual, it sounds like it’s not the end of Tami on Twitter, but the fan comments have become too much for her to deal with for the moment.

    On The Set Of Single Ladies: Janell Snowden Finds Out What To Expect This Season


    “Is there a rule on this set that every guy has to be drop-dead gorgeous?” VH1 News correspondent Janell Snowden asked Denise Vasi in this interview from the set of Single Ladies. The obvious answer: “Yes.” Janell was back talking to the cast about what we can expect from their characters and what it’s like to work on a set full of men like William Levy, DB Woodside, and Romeo Miller. (Somehow, the ladies manage to stay composed in spite of that last hurdle.) And for more coverage from the set of the show, watch yesterday’s clip, where Janell asks the cast to vote on who the sexiest one of the bunch is.

    Single Ladies premieres Monday, May 28 at 9 p.m. ET/PT.

    Mob Wives Season 2: The Highlights And Lowlights Of Renee Graziano

    Renee Graziano probably had no idea her life could change so much in a matter of months, but that’s just what happened from the beginning of this season of Mob Wives to the end. We put together a playlist of Renee’s most dramatic moments from season two, and after watching it back, we’re still stunned that this woman came out on top. She may have admitted her struggles with depression, had a life-threatening health scare, and a family crisis unlike any we’ve ever seen, but this woman proved through all of it that she’s tough as nails. After all of it, she came out on top. Watch Renee’s story unfold, crumbs and all, in our playlist.

    Watch Janell Snowden Interview The Cast Of Single Ladies: The Keyword Is…Sexy

    VH1 News’ Janell Snowden visited the set of Single Ladies recently to chat with the cast and some very special, very sexy guest stars. Among the topics they all discussed: who in the cast they would all like to see naked (or, who they have seen naked, in some cases). Turns out, the majority of the cast wants to see Charity Shea (better known as April) in the buff. In case you missed this clip when it aired on Big Morning Buzz Live today, check it out and let us know which cast member you’d like to see naked. But let’s keep it tasteful, people.
