Wow! This is some sad news we weren’t expecting today. Fox News reports that Linda Hogan and Charley Hill, have broken off their engagement and split after four years together. In the emotional finale of the show, Charley proposed to Linda, and when we spoke to her just a couple weeks ago, she admitted that they weren’t focusing on a wedding in the immediate future. We’re sad to read that their wedding plans are now on hold indefinitely.
Linda’s attorney, Raymond Rafool, commented on the situation, stating “There was a lot of therapy involved, and the couple realized they needed to do their own thing. The realization came this weekend. But it was a mutual decision, and a whole new chapter for both of them.”

When you think Big Ang, you think of the following things:
1. Breakout star of Mob Wives.
2. A woman who likes the wise guys.
3. Plastic surgery.
4. Little Louie, the cutest dog ever.
We made a “Best Of Big Ang” playlist to showcase all of the above, including our favorite scene with Ang and her son A.J. and some of her funniest quotes all season (our fave: “He’s buyin’ me a puppy!”). Watch the full playlist at the link and tell us what your favorite Big Ang quote is in the comments!
At the end of tonight’s Basketball Wives episode, Tami Roman appeared to do some soul searching after her argument with Kesha Nichols escalated and got to a point of no return. Despite her time in anger management this season, her emotions got the best of her and took it out on Kesha. Now that the episode has aired and the conversation about the fight has reached a fever pitch, Tami has written an apology to Kesha on her Facebook page. She says:
I don’t apologize for it 2b accepted — that is ultimately the other person’s right to accept or deny it. My only responsibility is to acknowledge a mistake was made and own up to it. I apologize to my family, my REAL friends, my business colleagues, and my Project Girl ladies 4my recent behavior on BBW. I am NOT a bully as depicted on the show, but I did make poor decisions in handling my differences with my cast mate. I sincerely apologize to all of us, as well as to my castmate who was on the receiving end of my wrath.
Kesha has also responded to the recent episodes with a blog post of her own. In it she writes “As a person who prides myself on turning lemons in lemonade, I had no idea how to turn the negative display of human behavior seen in Episode 12 into something positive, until now. Instead of knit picking, pointing fingers and calling names, I decided to educate myself on the issue at hand. I would like to share some of this information with you now, because when we know better, we do better,” and from there, she simply addresses the topic of bullying. You can read the whole post here.
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, we talked to Steve about Tiffany’s abrupt departure from the show, and Elizabeth’s issues with sex.
This week you got rid of Tiffany because it turns out she was married. Tell me about what really went down with that situation.
I try to be the best advice-giver I can be and stay true to my character and be that loud and unapologetic personality that demands accountability, and that comes out very much so in this episode because I was completely flabbergasted by Tiffany. That this girl has the balls to refuse to get up on the hot seat, it’s like okay, now you’re really pushing my buttons. At least try to go out in a dignified fashion. She couldn’t even do that.

Never doubt La La‘s commitment to her craft, because as you saw on tonight’s episode of La La’s Full Court Life, she’s willing to get into her scenes. Just ask Po, who got smacked across the face when she was serving as La La’s scene partner. La La is excited about an upcoming audition, and after she enlists Po to read lines with her, she shows just how into her scenes she can get.
Whew. From the moment this episode of Basketball Wives began to the moment it ended, it felt like we held our breath and our muscles tensed. We were frozen. For a solid hour we were riveted by the Tami Vs. Kesha showdown that began when Kesha, not interested in fighting with Tami, walked away from her. Over the course of the show, Tami held Kesha’s purse and phone hostage, offering to release them only if and when Kesha apologized for saying that she “could’ve come at Tami and said whatever I wanted to but there’s nothing I could’ve said that would have made her look worse than she was making herself look.” Knowing how Tami feels about being spoken about and not spoken to, this was maybe not the right thing for Kesha to say, and it was also a bad thing for Tami to find out.
We just wanted to give you all a heads up that the next episode of Tough Love New Orleans will be airing tomorrow night, that’s Tuesday, May 15, at 8 p.m. ET/PT, in case you want to check out an early sneak peek!

“We refuse to wait any longer,” Renee tells Drita this week on Mob Wives. “We” means Renee and Big Ang, and the wait refers to Drita and Karen having a sit-down to work their differences out. Renee is chief negotiator, and she has procured a location and time for the two of them to settle things.
The Basketball Wives reunion was filmed this weekend in Los Angeles, and contrary to anything you may have heard, the whole cast was in attendance and in rare form. We’ll have more dispatches from the reunion, including behind-the-scenes photos, interviews, and clips to show you soon, but in the meantime, check out some of the photos taken by the ladies themselves from the set on Saturday for a look at their reunion fashions.
This weekend, we were surprised to see that Basketball Wives star Royce Reed announced she was deleting her Facebook and Twitter accounts. We saw her Saturday at the taping of the reunion show to ask her why, and she briefly explained that it was to rid herself of negativity. After some thought, she decided to write a post for us to elaborate and explain that she’s not gone forever, but her presence online will be more for business than pleasure. Here’s what she has to say.
I’m writing this blog in reference to my recent deletion of Twitter and Facebook. I’ve been asked why by quite a few people I’d seen in LA while shooting the reunion as well as friends. My purpose was personal. The reason my twitter is reactivated is business. My problem was mixing the two because I’ve been giving away too much of my life. Sometimes you have to put your hand in the fire to know that it burns. We live in world that thrives off of pretending to be someone else just to chastise another person.
