This week on Mob Wives, things get personal. Renee and Carla are dealing with the homecoming of their husbands in very different ways, Karen is being judged because of the book she’s writing, and Drita? Well, Drita’s gonna teach a raccoon that she’s not to be messed with.

Have you ever thought of a question for a celebrity that you would love to ask if you ever got the chance? Well, here’s the perfect opportunity.

We’ve partnered with a new company called VYou to give viewers a chance to ask our guests anything you want.

We had Nancee, a hairstylist, in our office giving all of her Saddle Ranch co-stars cardboard cut-out hair makeovers recently, and of course we weren’t going to let her leave without giving herself a fake makeover too (a fakeover?). After seeing what she’d look like with the mohawk, Nancee discovered the look that would delight her mother, saying “This is the hairstyle like, on my way to moving back to the South and marrying that uber-Christian, Southern boy that she really wants me to be with.” Watch the video to see which style would thrill her mom and which style makes her look, as she says “like I just Fat-Boothed myself.”
Check out Nancee and all her co-stars on Saddle Ranch Sunday nights at 9:30 p.m. ET/PT.
It’s been evident from the first episode of this season of Basketball Wives that Tami Roman has had a big issue with Meeka Claxton. Meeka’s had a tendency to play both sides in the Team Evelyn Vs. Team Royce drama, and Tami is not a fan of her double talk and hand-waving in the face. Well, apparently their issues are still in full-swing because their conflict appears to have gotten physical during filming in Italy.
TMZ reports that Tami and Meeka got into a fistfight while the show was filming it’s final episodes in Rome recently. No one was seriously injured, but it’s reported that Tami punched Meeka in the face and they were both thrown out of the club they were in. Tami responded to the news on Twitter, writing “Re: TMZ – Meeka is not a victim! She wanted 2get it poppin w/me 2 impress Evelyn. If I feel threatened, I have a right 2 defend myself.” Meeka also responded, writing “Man oh man, don’t believe everything you read. All the facts aren’t straight. That’s all i’ll say about that.”
Guess we’ll have to wait for the show to see what the facts really are.
Basketball Wives airs Monday night at 8 p.m. ET/PT.
At the end of the clip above, where I spoke to Mob Wives star Renee Graziano about creating an online dating profile, Renee gave me a hug. I don’t really have anything else to say about this video because that was a personal highlight. For everyone else who is watching this and didn’t get to hug Renee, I will tell you her hair is very soft and very beautiful and very real.
Moving on. I actually learned quite a few things that I never would have guessed about Renee before our huggy love-fest, like when she said she always thought she’d be a music producer or a performer on Saturday Night Live when she was growing up, and she describes herself as a combination of “Carol Burnett, Lucille Ball, Blondie, and Joan Jett.” And really, if you’re making a list of badass women, that’s a pretty great start.
Be sure to tune in to Renee and the rest of the badass women of Mob Wives who can be seen Sunday nights at 8 p.m. ET/PT.

Val Stokes from Single Ladies might be unlucky in love, but her career is certainly on the right track. In this text message between Val and Keisha, Val mentions her newest client, Lady Gaga. Hopefully Gaga wasn’t as tough a client as the mayor’s wife. Check back regularly for more behind-the-scenes texts between the characters to get a glimpse of what they’re up to when we’re not watching.

It’s always fun to follow celebrities on Twitter, but here at VH1, our on-air talent has taken Tweeting and turned it into an art form. Take the cast of Mob Wives, who went from not even having Twitter accounts seven weeks ago to having more than 100,000 followers now. Or the ladies from Basketball Wives, who keep us updated on all their t-shirt drama, even when the cameras aren’t rolling. (Not to mention the crossover love these women have for one another’s shows, which is kind of sweet.)
The point is, you should be following them, and to make it easy, we’ve taken the liberty of doing all the Twitter dirty work so you can follow everyone on the network just by checking our our comprehensive VH1 Twitterpedia below. Need to know the handles of the folks from the last season of Celebrity Rehab or You’re Cut Off? We’ve got all that and more. Check it. Click it. Re-Tweet it.
When Renee Graziano visited the VH1 blog offices earlier this week, we kind of fell in love with her. We expected to be a little intimidated and instead, we wanted to go hang out with her for the rest of the day.
Since Mob Wives began, not even two months ago, Graziano has become a phenomenon, partly because of her family tree, but mostly because she’s shown how hilarious she is, especially on Twitter. We asked her about some of her more intriguing posts, especially the ones about 50 Cent, who she calls “an inspiration”, and the real-life situation that makes her “warm just thinking about it.” Stay in the loop with Graziano by following her Twitter feed (@ReneeGraziano) and tune in to Mob Wives Sunday nights at 8 p.m. ET/PT.
