Steve has a habit of making these girls’ lives (and dates) hell, and this week, hell was a soupy mess dropped in all their laps. To see how well they could handle a terrible situation and whether or not they can laugh at themselves, the challenges were all about having a sense a humor. So who had the last laugh? Let’s find out.
Pia Rizza has lived much of her life in her father’s shadow. “I had to live with the stigma of having a father who’s a rat for my whole life,” she says in this brief profile. But this castmember of Mob Wives Chicago is about to make a name for herself in a big way.
Watch Pia and the rest of the cast when the debut on Mob Wives Chicago on Sunday, June 10 at 8 p.m. ET/PT.
The second season of Mob Wives is coming to a close, but never fear, we still have Mob Wives Chicago to carry us through the summer. Over the next couple days, we’ll be introducing you to the cast, and first up is Renee Fecarotta Russo. This lady is all about class, respect, and loyalty, like any good mob wife. But also like any good mob wife, you better not cross her.
Mob Wives Chicago premieres Sunday June 10 at 8 p.m. ET/PT.
Wow! This is some sad news we weren’t expecting today. Fox News reports that Linda Hogan and Charley Hill, have broken off their engagement and split after four years together. In the emotional finale of the show, Charley proposed to Linda, and when we spoke to her just a couple weeks ago, she admitted that they weren’t focusing on a wedding in the immediate future. We’re sad to read that their wedding plans are now on hold indefinitely.
Linda’s attorney, Raymond Rafool, commented on the situation, stating “There was a lot of therapy involved, and the couple realized they needed to do their own thing. The realization came this weekend. But it was a mutual decision, and a whole new chapter for both of them.”

When you think Big Ang, you think of the following things:
1. Breakout star of Mob Wives.
2. A woman who likes the wise guys.
3. Plastic surgery.
4. Little Louie, the cutest dog ever.
We made a “Best Of Big Ang” playlist to showcase all of the above, including our favorite scene with Ang and her son A.J. and some of her funniest quotes all season (our fave: “He’s buyin’ me a puppy!”). Watch the full playlist at the link and tell us what your favorite Big Ang quote is in the comments!
At the end of tonight’s Basketball Wives episode, Tami Roman appeared to do some soul searching after her argument with Kesha Nichols escalated and got to a point of no return. Despite her time in anger management this season, her emotions got the best of her and took it out on Kesha. Now that the episode has aired and the conversation about the fight has reached a fever pitch, Tami has written an apology to Kesha on her Facebook page. She says:
I don’t apologize for it 2b accepted — that is ultimately the other person’s right to accept or deny it. My only responsibility is to acknowledge a mistake was made and own up to it. I apologize to my family, my REAL friends, my business colleagues, and my Project Girl ladies 4my recent behavior on BBW. I am NOT a bully as depicted on the show, but I did make poor decisions in handling my differences with my cast mate. I sincerely apologize to all of us, as well as to my castmate who was on the receiving end of my wrath.
Kesha has also responded to the recent episodes with a blog post of her own. In it she writes “As a person who prides myself on turning lemons in lemonade, I had no idea how to turn the negative display of human behavior seen in Episode 12 into something positive, until now. Instead of knit picking, pointing fingers and calling names, I decided to educate myself on the issue at hand. I would like to share some of this information with you now, because when we know better, we do better,” and from there, she simply addresses the topic of bullying. You can read the whole post here.
Master Matchmaker Steve Ward is back for another season of Tough Love, and each week, he’ll be giving us an exclusive look at what went down behind the scenes on the series. This week, we talked to Steve about Tiffany’s abrupt departure from the show, and Elizabeth’s issues with sex.
This week you got rid of Tiffany because it turns out she was married. Tell me about what really went down with that situation.
I try to be the best advice-giver I can be and stay true to my character and be that loud and unapologetic personality that demands accountability, and that comes out very much so in this episode because I was completely flabbergasted by Tiffany. That this girl has the balls to refuse to get up on the hot seat, it’s like okay, now you’re really pushing my buttons. At least try to go out in a dignified fashion. She couldn’t even do that.

Never doubt La La‘s commitment to her craft, because as you saw on tonight’s episode of La La’s Full Court Life, she’s willing to get into her scenes. Just ask Po, who got smacked across the face when she was serving as La La’s scene partner. La La is excited about an upcoming audition, and after she enlists Po to read lines with her, she shows just how into her scenes she can get.
Whew. From the moment this episode of Basketball Wives began to the moment it ended, it felt like we held our breath and our muscles tensed. We were frozen. For a solid hour we were riveted by the Tami Vs. Kesha showdown that began when Kesha, not interested in fighting with Tami, walked away from her. Over the course of the show, Tami held Kesha’s purse and phone hostage, offering to release them only if and when Kesha apologized for saying that she “could’ve come at Tami and said whatever I wanted to but there’s nothing I could’ve said that would have made her look worse than she was making herself look.” Knowing how Tami feels about being spoken about and not spoken to, this was maybe not the right thing for Kesha to say, and it was also a bad thing for Tami to find out.
