This tweet needs no other explanation. Joseline, we love you.
Will Mimi actually agree to a therapy session with Stevie and Joseline? That’s the big question in this sneak peek from Love And Hip Hop: Atlanta‘s upcoming episode. Will a three-way therapy session cement their status as a throuple, or will it just prove that Mimi is giving in and letting Stevie off the hook for his cheating? Those are the big questions she’s asking herself, and you’ll have to watch the full episode to find out what happens in therapy. Hint: s— goes down.
Love And Hip Hop: Atlanta airs Monday at 8 p.m. ET/PT.
In a recent interview with Radar Online, Evelyn Lozada opened up a little bit about her wedding, which was filmed for her upcoming show, Ev And Ocho. Though she couldn’t divulge a ton of details (we wouldn’t want to spoil the whole show for y’all), she did reveal one detail that not many other people can lay claim to: There was an actual earthquake on her big day.
“There was an earthquake on our wedding day!” Lozada said. “We were in the Caribbean on the island St. Maartin, I didn’t even think they had earthquakes there.” In addition to the act of God, Evelyn also hinted at one other atypical detail, that there may have been some exotic wildlife as part of the ceremony. “I can’t say if we had any wild animals there, that was a huge bone of contention and you’ll have to wait and see it on the show,” Evelyn hinted, but we all know Chad did want to go the unconventional route with the wedding, so anything is possible!
Evelyn also mentioned that in addition to Basketball Wives and Ev And Ocho, she and Chad will be featured on the HBO series Hard Knocks, which will film the Miami Dolphins during their training camp this fall. “We’ll definitely be featured in Hard Knocks,” she says. “It’s very different to Basketball Wives but still lots of fun, its just all related to football.” We have so much Ev and Ocho-ness to look forward to! And in the meantime, enjoy yet another one of their wedding photos, hot off the presses, above.

On Single Ladies, we’re used to relationships being stormy in the metaphorical sense, but on next Monday’s episode, there will be some actual storms brewing, too. Everyone takes cover at the store, but while most people are concerned with their safety and insurance and, you know, adult things, Omar is more worried that he’s going to get swept away like Dorothy and Toto. Of course he is.
Watch the sneak peek and tune in to Single Ladies when it airs Monday night at 9 p.m. ET/PT. Read more…
These ladies are channeling old Hollywood this week when they head off for a respite in Palm Springs at the former estate of Bing Crosby. But not everything is as mellow as that crooner’s voice, because there’s serious drama brewing. The glamorous denizens of old Hollywood flipped each other the bird when they were angry, right?
You know what you should never do? Take Christina Scoleri‘s phone and send joke texts to someone from it. ‘Cause she will get mad and never let it go. This week’s sneak peek of Mob Wives Chicago shows just what happens when a jokester, like Renee, for instance, plays a trick like that on Christina and shows no remorse. Mama gets angry. Ver-r-r-r-y angry.
Mob Wives Chicago airs Sunday night at 8 p.m. ET/PT.
The world has been buzzing this week with the report that Love And Hip Hop: Atlanta star K.Michelle might be dating Olympic medalist Ryan Lochte after K.Michelle posted a photo of the two of them and some supportive messages to Lochte on Twitter. In a series of several messages K.Michelle posted, she refers to Lochte as “my pooh” and wishes him well at the London Olympics, and in a video from 2011, she also admits to dating a swimmer. So what’s the real scoop? Well, we’ve got it.
K.Michelle was in New York City this week and told us that she is “enjoying dating,” but when it comes to Ryan, she was quick to point out “that’s my friend. He’s very motivational and he’s a great friend.” So there you have it. He’s just a really motivational friend…who happens to have a smokin’ hot body and a really insane grill.
Ev And Ocho doesn’t premiere until September 3 (set your DVRs!!), but we were lucky enough to get some exclusive wedding photos straight from their wedding photographer for you guys to check out. In these two shots you can get a better look at the happy couple’s wedding outfits, including Chad‘s amazing gold spiked shoes and one of Evelyn‘s three wedding outfits. Gorgeous!
