If you read this blog, you know we have a minor obsession with T.I. and his adorable family, so we are beyond excited to announce that T.I. And Tiny: The Family Hustle will return this fall for season two. Season one introduced us to Tip and Tiny‘s six children (and revealed that Tiny might be ready for baby number seven), and we just learned that Tip’s going to be spending some time in Chicago while he films the series Boss with Kelsey Grammer, so season two might have a lot of ground to cover. We’re just excited to see it play out.
GRAMMY-AWARD WINNING ARTIST T.I. AND R and B STAR WIFE TINY RETURN FOR A
SECOND SEASON OF “T.I. And TINY: THE FAMILY HUSTLE”
Last Tuesday we had a live chat with Royce Reed to discuss all the details of this season of Basketball Wives and what Royce has been up to lately. (In short, she’s got about twelve books in the works, an energy drink, and another run in an Off-Broadway show.) In another moment of candor, Royce assured everyone watching that her boobs are definitely real and she does not wear butt pads.
This Monday night at 7:15 p.m. ET, we’ll be holding another live chat with Tami Roman right before Basketball Wives airs on the East Coast, and we’re hoping Tami will be just as open and candid as Royce was. The event will be hosted by VH1 News’ Janell Snowden and will feature bloggers like Jonesy from Bossip, Stacey from RealityWives.net, and me, Liz Black. And as always, the audience is invited to join in by webcam for the chance to chat with Tami face to face, all you need to do is log on to VH1.com and connect to the chat. We hope to see you tonight!
It’s one thing to live through a nightmarish family trauma (let alone two in one day, as Renee Graziano did on tonight’s Mob Wives), but what has to be even more painful is watching it all play out on TV again, months after it happened. Renee has had to relive the pain she dealt with as Junior turned himself in (after falsely promising he would always be there for her) as well as listening on the phone while the police took her father in. So what did she and her cast mates think as they watched the scenario back on TV? Here are their live-tweets from tonight’s episode. Renee, we know this is tough, but your girls (and the rest of us!) totally have your back. And if you want to discuss the episode on Twitter, let us know what you think, and don’t forget to use the hashtag #JuniorsSecret.
This week is a story of how much the men we love can change our lives. For Carla, Drita, and Big Ang, their ex-husbands come with some baggage, but it’s carry-on sized compared to the enormous Smarte Carte Renee must wheel through security this week.
If there’s one thing we don’t normally post, it’s pregnancy rumors, because let’s face it, if someone’s pregnant, we’ll figure it out eventually. But this weekend, we’ve read two reports that have implied that both Tiny Cottle-Harris and Yandy Smith are pregnant, and we just thought we’d throw them out there because honestly, if we’re excited to hear about anyone having babies, it’s these two.
Both reports come from Media Take Out (another reason to question the verity of the news), but let’s consider the fact that we know Tiny and T.I. have discussed having another baby, and Yandy has been spotted (above) wearing what looks like an engagement ring, and she’s been fighting these pregnancy rumors ever since it was announced that someone in the Love and Hip Hop cast was expecting. (We know Kimbella‘s having another child, and we also know that Chrissy has been cleverly denying all reports that she’s up the duff). We’ll obviously figure out if they’re expecting in due time, but what do you think? Are the rumors to be believed?

When we heard that the cast of Mob Wives loved being parodied on Stevie TV (and did not, as Stevie Ryan feared, want to “knock her out”), we knew these women were even more awesome that originally thought. They know that they’re huge characters, and they took to Twitter to applaud Ryan for her hilarious take on their show. But what really takes the cake is that Drita has become such a fan that she’s actually going to appear on this Sunday’s episode, and we were there to document her day on the set. Check out some of our exclusive behind the scenes pics of these hilarious women hanging out, and tune in on Sunday night for the Mob Wives/Stevie TV double feature.

Stevie Ryan is a chameleon on TV, she has the ability to morph into just about any pop culture figure in order to put them on blast and parody their behavior and fame. But now that we’ve seen Stevie in person, we’d like to see more of her regular old self, please. The comedian is one of those people whose good looks are almost annoying, but the fact that she’s willing to make fun of herself along with all the characters she plays makes us forgive her. Take a peek at our Style Seen photo shoot with Ms. Ryan for some close-up shots of this lovely lady.
Stevie TV airs Sunday nights at 11 p.m. ET/PT.
Stevie Ryan is the eponymous star of VH1′s new sketch comedy show, Stevie TV, but it sounds like she kinda wants it to be Stevie and Drita TV. In this interview with Big Morning Buzz Live host Carrie Keagan, Ryan talked about meeting Mob Wives star Drita D’Avanzo and said she was initially terrified. “The one person that will probably successfully knock me out would be Drita,” she says. We don’t blame her, it could be a touchy situation meeting a person you’re impersonating. Luckily, it went well. “She was so awesome and such a good sport about it and she just loves the show…We’re slightly in love. Or at least, I am.”
After the jump, check out the photo that Ryan posted on Twitter which further proves her point. Stevie TV airs Sundays at 11 p.m. ET/PT.
