The 40 Greatest Feuds Of All Time: The Compete List

Now that our 40 Greatest Feuds special has aired, we’d like to sum up our thoughts by simply saying that we are so happy that we’ve never been in a fight with a celebrity. Can you imagine having all your dirty laundry aired out, your Tweets taken out of context, and every last conversation played out on camera? But of course, that’s exactly what our winners, Sammi Sweetheart and Ronnie Ortiz-Magro, signed up for when they took their relationship to the airwaves on Jersey Shore. For the full list of feuds, we have it after the jump, but let us know, should Sammi and Ronnie be at #1, or can you make the case for another pair to take the top seed?

Corri McFadden Talks House Of Consignment Episode 2: Meeting The E-Terns And Cleaning Out Vicki’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 is a double whammy, with two episodes for the price of one, so here’s our chat with Corri about episode two, where we meet more of her staff and visit Vicki’s closet.

You mention that your business has grown a lot in the past few years. Do you think the interest in couture consignment is economic, or has people’s interest in style has just grown?

We’ve seen an increase in business because each year we get more innovative, our client loyalty, and my staff and I work hard to make sure we are constantly making the service the best in the market. Everyone wants a good deal, and this is a business that makes it affordable for people. You can find some amazing deals.

What was your first impression of Daniel “Nipples At An Interview” The E-tern? Obviously he made it, but what were your first thoughts?

I love a sense of expressing who you are and he certainly did this.

Nicole definitely had a certain opinion about each of the E-terns because she could see how they were working and heard some of the complaining. Once Daniel and Mallory started their jobs, what did you think of their work ethics and expectations?

The purpose of an e-ternship was for them to get an insight into the business to see if it’s a right fit for their future. For us, it was about the ability to apply oneself to a task and learn what they are capable of as well as who they really are. Everyone who has worked for me so far has started at the bottom and worked their way up. There’s a lot to be said about someone who is willing to work hard, do the dirty work when necessary and remains faithful with no sense of entitlement.

How did Vicki’s closet compare to others you’ve seen?

Being a cop, her life is obviously chaotic and her closet was a voice crying out for help.

Why don’t you think people should buy the same thing in several colors? (I’m totally guilty of this.)

There are some exceptions to buying the same things in multiple colors such as a pant that you find with the perfect fit. However, when you buy multiples such as Vicki did with the Gucci belt, it starts to transform your shopping habit and begins to morph your style into a uniformed appearance that is predictable.

You mentioned that your business was built from scratch as a school assignment, where did the idea for eDrop Off come from?

Bidding On The House Of Consigment Item Of The Week Starts Now

We know it can be hard to watch a show like House Of Consignment where there’s amazing fashion everyone and get wistful that your own closet just doesn’t measure up. That’s why we’re excited to tell you that Corri McFadden and the rest of her eDrop-Off team totally understood that viewers would want in on the eBay action, so they’ve held one item from every closet clean out that’s featured this season on the show, and that piece will be placed in an auction that goes live immediately after every show. This week’s closet belonged to Karyn, and one of the items she parted with was this gorgeous Missoni dress. To bid on the dress, click here.

Royce Reed Recaps Episode 5 Of Basketball Wives: “HOW IN THE HELL DO YOU ALLOW YOURSELF TO GET HIT BY A CLUTCH PURSE??”

It’s 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.
I know its a bit late but, hey, I’ve been really busy…I do work lol. This blog is pretty easy and straight to the point. Nothing really happened, drama-wise so there is no real “Ooooooh chiiiilllleee” moments to write about…well, until the end.

Tami Roman’s Thoughts On Basketball Wives Episode 5: “It’s Not My Job To Blog, BUT I’m Going To Do It Anyway”

This season is bringing out the writer in everyone on Basketball Wives, that’s for sure. Between Jennifer and Evelyn‘s blogs, plus the regular recap that Royce posts for us here, we’re getting a ton of insider information and multiple sides to every storyline on the show, and for the past couple weeks, Tami Roman has thrown her two cents in on her website as well. So what’s Tami have to say about Monday night’s episode? Read for yourself. (As always, the ladies are verbose, so we have abbreviated this post and pulled some of the best quotes, but do yourself a favor and read the entire thing on Tami’s site.) Keep reading till the end, Tami definitely has some choice words not just for her cast mates but for her producers as well.

It’s Not My Job to Blog, BUT I’m going To Do It Anyway

Watching this episode made it official…it’s my turn to play the angry black woman. I don’t want to address to many things because I will see all of these ladies at the reunion and I’m much more of a face to face person, but here goes…

Couples Therapy Star Tashera Simmons Says She’ll Never Love Anyone Like She Loves DMX

You may not know very much about Tashera Simmons at the moment, but if you tune in to Couples Therapy, which premieres tonight at 9 p.m. ET/PT on VH1, you’ll get an intimate look at the woman whose other half is rapper DMX. Tashera and DMX have known each other for an astonishing twenty five years (though they’ve been separated for six years), and in this interview with Cherry Martinez, she opens up about their relationship. Consider this interview like a primer before the show tonight. The issue with their relationship lies partially in the fact that her husband has fathered six children with other women while still married to Tashera, and still the woman is a picture of calm and grace. “Something about him just struck a chord with me,” Tashera says. “He’s all I’ve ever known.”
