Corri McFadden On The Season Finale Of House Of Consignment: Firings And Hirings


Each week during the season on House of Consignment, we’ll be talking to eDrop Off owner and woman whose wardrobe we covet, Corri McFadden, about her take on every episode. This week marked the final episode of the first season, and the drama was kicked into high gear when Corri ended up firing her right-hand woman, Nicole. Read our final installment of interview series with Corri below, where she discusses the hurt she felt after learning Nicole was talking about her behind her back, and what it was like cleaning her own closet out for this episode.

Let’s talk about your own closet clean out. You’ve said you rotate your closet a lot, right?

I sell my own stuff all the time. There will be days where I’m getting dressed and something just isn’t working, so I’ll bring it to the office and list it then and there, but when I transition my closet and really get in there and overhaul every few months, because I’m constantly consuming, I’ll bring in like thirty to fifty pieces.

Can we discuss your Juicy Couture jumpsuit?

It only had a “J” zipper on it! It wasn’t one of the velour track suits! I wore it on a boat! Listen, Juicy Couture is a great collection. The velour tracksuits have seen their day unless you’re under sixteen, but the “Jenny From The Block” days are gone.

Corri McFadden On House Of Consignment Episode 9: Warehouse Sales And Ta Ta’s Closet


Each week during the season on House of Consignment, we’ll be talking to eDrop Off owner and woman whose wardrobe we covet, Corri McFadden, about her take on every episode. This week, Corri and her crew held a charity warehouse sale that ended up being a bigger project than they expected.

Episode nine featured the warehouse sale for charity, I wish this episode was longer because I could have watched this forever, it was so fun to see how fast-paced that day was.

I know, that episode needed to be like three hours. Actually, it could have been forty-five minutes long because that’s how long it took to sell out.

Tough Love New Orleans – Episode 2 – Perception Vs. Reality


This week on Tough Love, the ladies were asked to create an online profile. Steve’s advice is to put themselves in the mind of a man reading the profile, rather than just writing about whatever comes to mind. Be honest, but be appealing. Some of the women are having a hard time figuring out what would appeal to a man, and some of them are just oblivious. Donna is tempted to write about her hero, Barbra Streisand. Elizabeth could write a novel about her estrangement from her family. And Despina, describing her ideal date, mentions that it should always end with sex. So of course, after they’ve written profiles like these, the only thing that makes sense for Steve to do is show the profiles to his man panel, who will judge them all. Read more…

Royce Reed Recaps Basketball Wives Episode 10: Things That Make You Go Hmmmmm…


Its time once again to welcome Royce Reed back to the blog so she can tell it like it is. For the past two seasons of Basketball Wives, Royce has recapped every episode, all the highs and lows, and given us her completely honest and unfiltered opinion. We’re thrilled to have her back for season four.

OK HERE WE GO!!! AGAIN, THIS IS MY BLOG AND I SAY WHAT I WANT WHEN I WANT AND HOW I WANT. IF YOU DON’T LIKE IT DON’T READ IT.

Last night’s show was a bit disturbing and I’m sure I might ruffle a few feathers but some things need to be said. I’m not going to go in any particular order I’m just going to speak on the issues as they come to mind.

It really confuses me as to why Jenn‘s “friends” keep coming up. In terms of Jenn’s bougie aura…it really hasn’t changed that much. She’s ALWAYS had an air about herself, but maybe it wasn’t recognized by Evelyn and Nia because she was their friend or because they didn’t care. Jenn speaking up and attempting to defend herself with words isn’t much different either, but I guess since she’s never defended herself against Evelyn, she now has “balls” and is considered fake.

She Said/She Said: Jennifer Calls Last Night’s Episode “Foolery” On Her Blog, While Evelyn Focuses On The Positive Moments


Each week on this season of Basketball Wives, we’ve been doing our best to keep up with the recaps and blog posts the cast of the show has been writing to give their side of what’s really going down. This week, Jennifer addresses the continued “BS” and “foolery” (her words) with the fighting, and Evelyn focuses on the positive aspects of the episode like her photo shoot and birthday party, only devoting one sentence to Jen. We also grabbed a soundbite from Tami‘s blog which is pretty great this week as well. Here we go:

Jennifer writes on her blog:

And the BS continues…I honestly could not stomach to watch last week’s episode. I had lived through the craziness and to relive it was just too much for me. But I would like to clarify a few things. First up, I never had an issue with “the assistant” up until that day. At one point, we were good friends. We went out together, went to dinner, stayed at each other’s houses and shared plenty of good times and laughs. There had been some incidents leading up to why I started pulling away from the friendship but I don’t feel the need to blast that information. However, the most important reason why I eased up on the friendship is because she started working for someone who refers to themselves as my “enemy.” To me being good friends would just cause the situation to be messy so I rather fall back. No love lost and I like I said, I didn’t have any issue with her until she put her hands on me.
