Michael Lohan was a guest on The View yesterday to discuss his upcoming appearance on the new season of Celebrity Rehab With Dr. Drew. The man has always been outspoken about daughter Lindsay‘s substance abuse, but in this clip, he reveals to Sherri Shepherd and the other hosts that it was only after receiving Dr. Drew‘s treatment that he realized he was wrong to take their struggles public, and he takes responsibility for Lindsay’s addiction.
“At times I spoke out in the wrong ways and I did the wrong things and I led by the wrong example,” he says, and later confesses that “nine out of ten times” he would take back all of the things he has said publicly about Lindsay. Check out more of Michael on The View in the clip above, and tune in to Celebrity Rehab 5, which premieres on Sunday, June 26 at 9 p.m. ET/PT.
When Tami Roman visited our office recently, we thought we might have a little fun with her and play a game we made up called “Who Said It?”
We took a bunch of quotes from the first two seasons of Basketball Wives and quizzed Tami on her knowledge of the show. In the first half of our low-budget game show, posted above, Tami started off slowly (“Gloria has me stumped!” she said after a few season one questions that she missed), but it didn’t matter because Tami was a hilarious contestant. Check back for part two of the quiz tomorrow when Tami tackles season two and redeems herself.
In this special sneak preview of the new VH1 series Famous Food, Heidi Montag proves that her bartending skills leave something to be desired. If you desire having a drink poured into a glass.
Montag, along with other celebs like Danielle Staub and Jake Pavelka, are in charge of running Lemon Basket, a new L.A. restaurant. As you can see in this clip, Heidi’s not a natural behind the bar. “I watched that movie with Tom Cruise. I mean, it can’t be that hard, right?” Heidi says. Famous last words as the bottles, ice, and Grey Goose droplets rain down while patrons seek shelter elsewhere. “Actually, it turned out to be a little harder than I thought.”
Famous Food premieres Sunday, July 10th at 10 p.m. ET/PT.
Radar Online reports that Jeff Conaway was given a private memorial service on Tuesday in Encino, California, and many of his close friends and former so-stars were in attendance.
Attendees included Conaway’s former fiancee Vikki Lizzi, his Taxi co-star Christopher Lloyd, actors Corey Feldman and Ron Jeremy, and fellow Celebrity Rehab patients Amber Smith, Mary Carey. The service included a performance from The Temptations, who sang “It’s So Hard To Say Goodbye” in Conaway’s honor. One guest told Radar “there wasn’t a dry eye in the house” during the service.
Conaway passed away on May 27 at the age of 60 and will be greatly missed.
The VH1 Blog is lucky enough to welcome back Royce Reed to her weekly recapping gig where she’ll give us her perspective on all things Basketball Wives 3. Check in each week to hear Royce’s take on the drama that goes down. This week: Feathers are getting ruffled.
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.
The fact that I’m writing this during my birthday week should say a lot about how much I respect my fans and how much it means to me to get my point across. This won’t be long because in actuality I am being selfish due to the fact that it IS my birthday week and I probably won’t remember most of it. With that said…
Karen Gravano‘s two big story arcs on Mob Wives this season have revolved around the book she’s writing about growing up as a child of the mob, and her often contentious relationship with Drita D’Avanzo, who happens to be married to Karen’s ex-boyfriend, Lee.
When Karen visited VH1 recently, we asked her if there was anything she thought the show focused on too much, to which she responded “This whole Lee thing.” Unfortunately, ten episodes of arguing about Lee and his marriage to Drita has taken its toll on that friendship, and we’re preparing for World War III (Rooftop Bar Edition) in the finale. Sadly though, it sounds like all that fighting has done some real damage. “It’s hard to say if we could ever be friends again,” Karen told us, which we assume means that season two is going to be that much more of an emotional roller coaster.
Tune in to the Mob Wives finale on Sunday, June 26th at 8 p.m. ET/PT.
We’ve all been there, covering a shift for a co-worker when they call out sick (and come in the next day with a tan), but in this text message, sent by Single Ladies‘ Keisha, she doesn’t even bother to fake an illness. Keisha tells her co-worker Omar exactly what she plans to do while she’s playing hooky (can we coin the term hooky-nookie?), but lucky for her, Omar is a forgiving sort. It’s the newbie intern Christina who might not be so happy with this arrangement though…
Single Ladies airs Monday nights at 9 p.m. ET/PT, and for more behind-the-scenes bonus features, be sure to check out the Twitter pages of Val (@Val_VH1), Keisha (@Keisha_VH1) and Omar (@Omar_VH1).
On Mob Wives, we’ve seen what happens when Renee Graziano attempts online dating, but fellow single gal Karen Gravano takes another approach to finding a man. In this bonus clip from episode nine, watch as Karen enlists her pal Carla to serve as her wing-woman at a dive bar in the financial district in hopes of finding a nice banker-type. Unfortunately, they’re sad to discover that they don’t make Wall Street guys like they used to.
“No one at this bar had good game, swagger, whatever you want to call it,” Karen says after being approached by a few duds. “I don’t know what I’m gonna want to do to bone a nerd. I need the guys with swagger.” Says Carla of this wimpy crop of cubicle-dwellers, “I don’t think they’re ready for Karen.”
We’re certainly ready for her though, and we can’t wait for the fight-filled finale of Mob Wives, airing this Sunday, June 26th, at 8 p.m. ET/PT.
One of the things we love about Single Ladies is the passion that it inspires in its fans. Especially the fans on Twitter. That’s why we’ve started a weekly roundup of the best tweets from the most supportive, and usually hilarious, fans in the Twitterverse. A lot of you thought Darryl’s extra-cold delivery of divorce papers was rough, but personally, we concur with those of you who wanted to see more (i.e. ALL) of D.B. Woodside. (This photo is for you guys.)

For those of you who haven’t yet entered VH1’s “Single and Liking It” Photo Contest, we have all the instructions on how do get on that after the jump. And don’t forget to tune in to Single Ladies on Monday nights at 9 p.m. ET/PT.
The men that the Single Ladies were involved with tonight were the worst. “Uncle Teddy” right here was bad, but boy, Darryl sure ended up being the worst one of all, huh? Didn’t see that one coming.
