On Sunday, during the premiere of Big Ang, we let you guys know that we’d be offering up the show’s catchy (like, can’t-get-it-out-of-our-head catchy) theme song on iTunes, and it’s finally here! The “Big Ang Theme” by Moxie Black is on sale now…if you haven’t already picked a personal song of summer, allow us to suggest this one. You can find it here.
It’s hard not to relate in some way to all the women on Hollywood Exes — they’ve all endured trouble with men, they’re all businesswomen who are working hard on their careers, and they all have impeccable style that we aspire to have. It’s hard to nail down which woman we’re most like, but that’s why we’ve devised a handy VH1 mobile quiz to help us figure it out. To have the quiz sent directly to your phone, text “EXES” to 22422. Are you a Sheree, Mayte, Nicole, Andrea or Jessica? I’m a Mayte…must be all those Prince dishes I have in my china cabinet.

Prepare to meet some of the craziest mother-daughter pairs reality TV has ever seen. On Wednesday, July 18, VH1 will premiere Mama Drama, which features five sets of moms and daughters who have all been chosen to live together in Las Vegas. Check out the show description below, and a gallery of the ladies to see what’s in store when Mama Drama takes over your TV.
VH1 is putting one of the most important human relationships under the microscope — the complex dynamics that develop between a mother and her young, adult daughter. This 10 episode docu-series will uncover five sets of over-the-top mothers/daughter pairs that will leave you wondering, “who is the ‘grown-up’ and who is the child?” They’ll put their relationships on the line as they figure out if being BFFs really is the best for everyone or just a recipe for total disaster. Forced to live together, they will have no choice but to look at one another as well as in the mirror. Do they wish they had more traditional relationships? Or is this the only way to live? There will be no host to guide them, no therapist to heal them, just five sets of wildly different women trying to work out their issues under the same roof. Whether they’re bonding or just partying, they’re bound to learn something — whether they like it or not.

We were on the ground down at the Essence Music Festival this past weekend, and while we got some fantastic photos of some of VH1′s biggest stars, there were so many events that we couldn’t be everywhere at once. Here are a few more shots that we wanted to share from some amazing performances, red carpet arrivals and candid moments, mostly of our VH1 family but we also had to include some killer photos of some of our favorite musical divas in action. Check them all out below.

Each week, we’re bringing you the best, funniest, and occasionally jaw-dropping tweets from the cast of Love And Hip Hop: Atlanta because this is a group that doesn’t hold back their thoughts. Their running commentary is always entertaining, and this week we noticed that there was an ongoing battle between Erica Dixon, Joseline, and Lil Scrappy to clear up what “really” went down during their parking lot fight. (Stevie J tweeted that he was on the west coast last night and didn’t watch the show when it aired.) Here are some of the she said-he said-she said tweets; as always, feel free to weigh in on what you think the real story is. (To follow the entire cast on Twitter yourselves, check out our handy list of Twitter handles here.)
Spoiler alert! Darryl is back and he’s ready to give April a taste of her own medicine.
While we were at the Big Ang premiere party last night, we noted that Renee Graziano, one of Ang’s biggest supporters and close family friends, was absent. Turns out the Mob Wives star has a very good reason for not partying, TMZ reports that Graziano’s house was robbed over the weekend. After arriving home from a July 4th vacation in Atlantic City, Graziano realized her home was burglarized, and she’s filled out a police report with the NYPD. Graziano has been quiet about the robbery on Twitter, instead opting to just keep things light and happy, yesterday she Tweeted her support to the cast of Ang’s show and threw some positivity out there, writing “I hope n pray every1 goes 2 bed w peace in the mind and wakes up 2 a brand new day w a smile on the heart.”
This isn’t the first time something like that has happened, back in April, Renee’s home was the target of an attempted robbery that was thwarted by her alarm system.
