Single Ladies Star D.B. Woodside Compares Malcolm And Keisha To A Modern-Day Romeo And Juliet

“Like most fans, I, too, want to see them wind up together in whatever their version of happily ever after would be, but…it’s gonna be a while,” D.B. Woodside says in this exclusive clip from the Single Ladies set, talking about his onscreen romance with Keisha, played by LisaRaye McCoy. Woodside plays Malcolm who, among other things, has been caught giving money to his ex-wife and helping her escape prosecution, hiding out from the FBI himself, and not informing Keisha of his whereabouts. And still, we root for him and can’t get over all that sexy. Woodside explains that even though he’s far from the character, he roots for him and feels a connection. “He’s a good guy who has a good heart [and] a little bit of a shady past.”

Single Ladies airs Monday nights at 9 p.m. ET/PT.

The Mob Wives Chicago Profile: Christina Scoleri Is A Fighter


“I wanna get the story out there,” Christina Scoleri explains when she’s asked why she joined the cast of Mob Wives Chicago. And she definitely has a story to tell. With a dad who was “connected” and arrested over twenty times, she’s intimately familiar with the lifestyle, but she’s endured some of her own trials and…trivulations, too. She’s divorced but still living with her ex, and raising her daughter, and just fighting (figuratively and sometimes literally) to survive. Doing this show, she says, “Is therapy for me.”

Tami Roman Gets Teary On The Wendy Williams Show Discussing The Effects That Basketball Wives Had On Her Daughters This Season

“Everybody’s had a moment that they aren’t too proud of,” Tami Roman told Wendy Williams when she appeared on Williams’ talk show. Williams has been a vocal critic of Basketball Wives this season, criticizing the drama and the fighting, and she said as much to Tami’s face and allowed Tami the chance to voice her side of the story publicly on the show today. “This particular incident really taught me a valuable lesson,” she continued, stressing that it took a toll on her as a mother to two teenagers.

“For the first time I looked at my daughters and they weren’t really proud of their Mom and they were embarrassed of me,” she said, welling up with tears. “I have a huge platform I should be responsible, I should be accountable, and I haven’t really been honoring that.” Ultimately, she takes responsibility and expresses remorse for her actions, saying “The only person who I have to blame is me, because I was the one who got up there and acted a pure fool.”

Jennifer Williams Blogs About “This Trying Season” Of Basketball Wives And Is Thankful It’s Over

Jennifer Williams Basketball Wives

Throughout this season of Basketball Wives, we’ve followed the blogs of Evelyn Lozada, Jennifer Williams, and occasionally Tami Roman and Kesha Nichols. The final episode of season four aired last night, and when we checked in this morning, only Jennifer has written in her blog about the show, and we thought her final word on the season was an impressive summary of her thoughts and feelings, in which she finally takes responsibility for certain actions, calls out some of her castmates for theirs, and apologizes for any wrongs that needed to be righted. We’re posting an excerpt of her post below, but it’s definitely worth reading the entire thing here.

It has been an epic season of Basketball Wives full of ups and downs, backstabbing, fallouts amongst friends, and assault and battery along with some tears. More than enough drama for me. I can definitely say with pure pleasure I am happy to see this season come to an end.

During the first two seasons of the show, I was dealing with the dissolution of my marriage and having it played out for all our viewers to see. It was difficult and hurtful to keep reliving those moments every time the show aired. This season I was dealing with yet another failed relationship with a former friend. I never really had to deal with too much female drama in my life. My friends that are close to me have been in my life for years and I have recently met amazing friends that really hold me down. So, with two failed relationships in the past two years I decided to take a look at myself, the common denominator…

As far as my friends go, I will do anything within my means for my friends. When I think about honor and respect, those words run parallel with friends to me. Sometimes we don’t always want to hear our friend’s honest opinion, but I am always going to give my honest opinion. Everybody can’t handle it, however I also know that I have been guilty of only wanting to hear what I think is right as well. At times when I am dealing with difficult situations, stressed or depressed, I tend to shut down. My friends can’t reach me and I go into a shell. Overall, I am ride or die for my friends. With that being said, I in turn ask for respect and expect others to treat people the way they want to be treated. I sincerely apologize to any and all my friends if I did anything to hurt you intentionally or unintentionally.

In relation to the Basketball Wives cast, I feel some of the ladies who claimed to be my friend and claimed to be neutral made snide and slick remarks along with snickering about me. This proved to me that they indeed were not at all neutral. This season for me seemed no matter what I did it wasn’t going to be right, so I stopped trying. Tahiti was the last straw for me, we were half way around the world and I didn’t go there to argue or fight. I just wanted peace, but soon realized that wasn’t going to happen unless I was secluded from those that were determined to argue and fight. Arguing with former friends, slinging dirt back and forth was something I could have done in Miami not there. And what ever happened to the “G Code”? Whether the validity of things being said about me was true or false, as a friend there are certain things I would NEVER do. If you tell me something in confidence friend or foe, whether I don’t speak to you 20 years from now I will respect that and you will never have to worry about me repeating a word. The funny thing about arguing is choosing your words wisely because you can never take them back especially with millions of viewers watching. Although I have been through a number of emotions regarding my friendship with Evelyn dissolving, I have not and will not participate in the mud slinging. Over 10 years we have shared good times, bad times, marriages, engagements, break ups, moving, vacations, holidays together, wins, loses and much more. As we all have witnessed before, unfortunately our relationship has not survived the pressures and effects of a reality show and all that comes with it. As difficult and hurtful as it may be, I will continue to be resolute with my decision to respect what our friendship was and not where is has gone.
