“Don’t hand it to him. Give it to him,” Omar advises Raquel on her first ever outing to the strip club and she looks for a way to slip some singles to one of the male strippers. Raquel has never thrown dollar bills at oiled up men before, nor has she ever gotten a table dance from buff, semi-nude cowboys named Darkness, so the entire evening is a night of firsts.
Keisha is the one who enjoys her own table dance the most though,
but that’s because instead of appreciating Darkness for who he is (probably a charity worker with a heart of gold working his way through grad school, as all the best strippers are), she gets distracted imagining that he’s Malcolm and proves that she’s clearly not over him. Read more…
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 discussed the awkwardness that comes with meeting your girlfriend’s parents. All the guys handled things well, but it got pretty awkward for a few of them.
I want to ask you what you thought of Shalana’s mom in this episode, telling her grandson that Aubrey would be his new step-dad.
That’s what I call a deterrent, not to mention when guys meet a woman’s mother, they imagine that’s what the woman is going to turn herself into. I’m just saying, the mom didn’t help matters at all.
Were you shocked that she’d make that leap, hearing her say “Here’s your new step-father”? Read more…
And now we return to the fight that came out of left field, right where we left off last week…
Devastating news to report today, as we just learned about the sudden death of Rodney King. The former Celebrity Rehab patient was found dead in his swimming pool Sunday and paramedics were unable to revive him. An autopsy will be performed to determine the cause of death.
King gained notoriety in 1991 when he was beaten by four Los Angeles police officers after a car chase. The beating was caught on tape and the officers’ subsequent trial and acquittal were the fuel for the L.A. riots in 1994. (The story of the riots was recently documented in the VH1 Rock Doc Uprising: Hip Hop And The L.A. Riots, which King also appeared in.) King gained even more recognition when he appeared on Celebrity Rehab in 2008, and most recently, he appeared in an episode of Celebrity Rehab Revisited. King is survived by his fiancee, Cynthia Kelly and his three children. Our thoughts go out to all his loved ones at this time.

“We are the real ex-wives club,” says Nicole Murphy in the supertrailer for Hollywood Exes. In the new series, we meet Murphy and her friends Andrea Kelly, Jessica Canseco, Mayte Garcia, and Sheree Fletcher, who were all married to Hollywood superstars or A-list athletes and are now branching out on their own.
Even though these women have led seriously glamorous lives and their marriages often had drama, they have each others’ backs and share a sisterhood, Murphy explains. In this series, they’re all on personal questions for success, love, and happiness. Join them on their journey when the show premieres on June 27th at 9 p.m. ET/PT.
Mimi is misunderstood. As the longtime love of producer Stevie J and the mother to his daughter, she’s often been called a gold digger and she’s tired of being labeled as such. She’s hoping fans of Love And Hip Hop: Atlanta will see her for who she really is: a nice person. A mother. A woman who cleans for a living (so how could she be a gold digger??). And a woman who is finally coming out of her shell to tell her story.
Love And Hip Hop: Atlanta premieres Monday night at 8 p.m. ET/PT.
The cast of Love And Hip Hop: Atlanta does not want for aspiring artists. We’ve already introduced you to K.Michelle , Karlie Redd, and Joseline who are currently on their way to superstardom, and now we meet Rasheeda, who’s performed all over the globe but she’s still grinding and working to make it big.
“The swag in the ATL is just so different,” she tells us, comparing the Atlanta cast of Love And Hip Hop to the New York cast, but what’s most surprising about Rasheeda is that she admits that she has no drama with anyone else on the show. To learn more about this Georgia Peach, watch our character profile and tune in on Monday nights at 8 p.m. ET/PT.
