Anyone who watched last season of Basketball Wives L.A. knows that one of the mottoes of Jackie and Doug Christie is “If you’re always planning a wedding, you’ll never have time to plan a divorce.” And in keeping with their annual tradition, they just held their seventeenth wedding recently, and Jackie shared some exclusive pictures with us from the equality-themed day, you can see more of them below, after the jump.
The ceremony was held in a gay nightclub in West Hollywood, CA because they wanted to show their support for gay marriage. In a statement, Jackie and Doug explained their commitment to marriage equality, writing:
As life-long supporters of the gay community, Doug and I remain humbled by the overwhelming love, acceptance and friendship they have extended with open arms while treating us like family,” Jackie Christie said at the ceremony, according to a statement. “As we celebrate 17 years of marriage, it weighs heavy on our hearts that the same love shared by many of our friends is considered “less than” and is not widely recognized due to antiquated laws, lack of acceptance, and misperceptions, among other discriminatory factors. Tonight was nothing less than a celebration of the recent advancements made in the fight for Marriage Equality, but also a reminder of the work that still needs to be done. Until that battle is won, Doug and I will remain soldiers on the frontlines.
Jackie gave us a few more details of the wedding as well: she had two maids of honor and three bridesmaids, there was one best man and three groomsmen, and the ceremony was officiated by friend Chris Robinson. The theme of the night was “vintage fashion,” and Jackie’s dress was designed by Oleg Cassini. The desserts, featured among the photos below, were from Candy Crush Events. Flowers were from L.A. shop Flour LA. We’re thrilled that Jackie shared her photos with us, the wedding will be featured on the next season of Basketball Wives L.A. Read more…

Summer truly is wedding and engagement season, and Single Ladies star Denise Vasi is yet another star from our VH1 family who’s got big news to share.

NOW the fun part…” and confirmed that she is engaged to her boyfriend, video and commercial director Anthony Mandler. We’re so excited for the couple and Denise is going to make one gorgeous bride.

Do you want to know why we love Adrianne Curry so much? Because not only can the girl look hot in a bikini any day of the week, but she’s not afraid to let her nerdiest impulses rage at Comic-Con. Curry hung out in San Diego this weekend at the fest and underwent a couple of different costume changes, but this one that she wore to an Expendables premiere party was by far our favorite.

Laura and Gloria Govan gave us an interview recently where they discussed the changes that we could look forward to on the second season of Basketball Wives L.A. They hinted that this new season would be a little more peaceful and that there would be a slight casting shakeup, and from the looks of these pictures, we now have some proof of both of those things. In these shots we snagged from Twitter, the season two cast (including newcomer Brooke Bailey) posed together in their best poolside fashions to celebrate Brooke’s birthday, and we have to say this looks like a pretty harmonious group. Missing from the photo is Imani Showalter, no word yet on whether or not she’s returning to the show, however. Check out the pics below for more of the cast — some of these ladies have been working out hard and it shows!

We want to pass along our very best wishes to Couples Therapy alum DMX this morning, the rapper landed in the hospital this weekend after a four-wheeler accident near his house in South Carolina.
TMZ reports that DMX lost control of and crashed the four-wheeler he was driving on Saturday. Though he was thrown off the vehicle and he landed on his backside, he was taken to the hospital with a concussion and he’s not sure when he’ll be released. We’re just happy his injuries weren’t more serious and we wish him the best!
Ang is on a doctor-prescribed health kick this week, but she’s definitely not happy about it.
In this sneak peek from Monday night’s episode of Love And Hip Hop: Atlanta, we thought it was actually pretty big of Joseline to apologize to Erica for accusing her of sleeping with Stevie J. As Joseline explains “I probably owe her an apology. I thought she had sex with Stevie. I thought he smashed her. I guess I was wrong.” Unfortunately, even though she’s sorry, she and Erica aren’t about to be friends. Erica’s response to the accusation? “Stevie couldn’t get it on my bad day.”
To see the rest of their saga, tune in to Love And Hip Hop: Atlanta on Monday at 8 p.m. ET/PT.
