Shaunie O’Neal Talks Basketball Wives Season 4, And Whose Side She’s On


Vibe.com sat down with Shaunie O’Neal recently and asked her to comment on all the fights and drama this season on Basketball Wives. As ever, she’s remaining impartial. “I’m too old to be siding with two grown women that have their own beef going on,” she says in the clip above. “We’re all grown and everybody changes and change is good for the most part, so I’m just rolling with it and I’m kind of over it and I don’t care anymore.”

Tune in to Basketball Wives Monday nights at 8 p.m. ET/PT.

Kenya Bell’s Single “Fly” Is Out On iTunes Today


Basketball Wives star Kenya Bell is celebrating her birthday today (happy birthday from your VH1 fam, Kenya!) but bigger than that, her music career is getting a boost now that she has a new single available on iTunes. At last, fans can listen to the music she’s been working so hard to produce all season. Bell tweeted the video above, where she’s singing the “America The Beautiful,” to give us a little sample of her vocals, too. Her song, “Fly,” is available now on iTunes. Take a listen and let us know what you think! We’re pretty impressed with it ourselves.

We’d also like to point out that even though Kenya may not be close with Kesha or Evelyn at this moment on the show, Jennifer Williams tweeted her a lovely birthday message earlier, writing “Happy Birthday @KenyaBell! Hope u have a great day! Everyone support her music available on iTunes today.. Xo.”

Renee And Junior: A Timeline Of Recent Events


Mob Wives usually has a few months of lead time between filming and when the episodes air, which means that there have been a few major news stories this year that, in a way, spoiled the plot of the show for us in advance. For the past two episodes, we’ve gotten an intimate look at what happens to a mob family when the unthinkable happens, in this case, Renee Graziano learns that her own father has been taken in by police, and Junior may be responsible for it. We covered those stories as they happened in real time, but in case you missed them or need a supplement to what’s been going on on the show, we’ve got a brief timeline below that should help clear up what the Graziano family has gone through.

Mob Wives – Episode 12 – The Ultimate Betrayal


If ever an episode of Mob Wives exemplified the show’s mission statement, which is to prove how hard it is to be a family member of someone in “the lifestyle,” this is it. We’ve been privy to the dramatic moments and emotional breakdowns of these women in the past, but it all pales now compared to Renee Graziano‘s situation which has unfolded before the world’s eyes.

Basketball Wives Episode 7 Sneak: I Will Admit That I Did Hear That You Were Loose


Ohhhh, Kenya, Kenya, Kenya. The girl is definitely not winning any points with Evelyn this week, as she continues to talk circles around whether or not she called Ev “loose,” and in this sneak from Monday’s episode of Basketball Wives, she digs herself a little deeper with every word she utters.

Watch as Kesha conveniently slips out of the conversation she started, leaving Kenya to defend herself. This is only the beginning, pretty soon, the wine bottles are going to start flying.
