Love And Hip Hop: Atlanta Star Lil’ Scrappy Appears On MTV’s RapFix Live, Talks About His Breakup With Diamond


On Monday’s season premiere of Love And Hip Hop: Atlanta, we learned all about the love triangle (or really more like a love square) between Lil’ Scrappy and his ex, Diamond, who dumped him for Soulja Boy, causing Scrappy to return to his old flame Erica. Lil’ Scrappy appeared on RapFix Live yesterday to discuss the matter (he has no beef with Soulja Boy over the situation even though he says he was really in love with Diamond and he suffered a broken heart) and to show a sneak peek of next week’s episode of the show. The interview continues in the clip below the jump.

Love And Hip Hop: Atlanta Episode 2 Sneak Peek: Hurt, Embarrassed, And Disgusted


“Last night at K.Michelle‘s birthday party, Stevie J showed his ass,” Ariane says in this sneak peek of Love And Hip Hop: Atlanta‘s second episode. “I was embarrassed. That ain’t even my d—.”

Never change, Ariane! Seriously, she’s the lone voice of reason on this show right now. Ariane sits down with Mimi to discuss what happened at the party and to point out the obvious fact that Stevie J and Joseline‘s relationship is personal and professional. “Clearly,” Mimi says. But still, Mimi is in love with Stevie and Ariane wants to help her break her addiction to him. Watch the full clip above to get an early look at this week’s episode — if you thought the premiere was intense, I have to warn you, it’s only going to get crazier. Love And Hip Hop: Atlanta airs Monday at 8 p.m. ET/PT.

Meet Hollywood Exes Star Andrea Kelly, The Phantom Wife

When Andrea Kelly tells people she was married to R. Kelly, often the reaction she gets is “I didn’t even know he was married!” which is why she calls herself the “phantom wife.” The pair are no longer married, why is why Andrea is the perfect fit for VH1′s latest series, Hollywood Exes. The newly divorced mother of three is feisty and hilarious and, as you’ll see from the show, a born entertainer.

In this profile piece, Andrea, a dancer, talks about how she was hesitant to start a relationship with her ex, telling him “I don’t wanna be your girlfriend, ’cause you got about fifteen hundred of those.” Eventually he wooed her, they married and had three children, and then the strain of both of them being artists started to take its toll. Now that they’re apart, Drea is in control of her life and ready to be an artist and dancer again, and she wants the world to know her for who she is. Also, make sure you stay on her good side, lest you get a tongue lashing or one of her catchphrases lobbed at you. “Baby hair don’t care.”

Hollywood Exes premieres on Wednesday, June 27 at 9 p.m. ET/PT.

Royce Reed Confirms She And Dezmon Have Broken Up

Royce Reed Confirms Her Breakup With Dez Briscoe
We’re a little late to this news (forgive us, we were on vacation when it broke), but we just wanted to keep you curious Basketball Wives fans up to date. Last week, Royce Reed confirmed that she and her boyfriend Dez Briscoe broke up once and for all. This comes after a tumultuous few months where Royce found out Dez had sent intimate texts to the mother of his child while he was committed to Royce. (As we saw on the show, they went as far as discussing engagement rings.)

Royce penned a blog for us to clarify her feelings on the situation back in April, writing “Do I think Dezmon loves me? Yes! Do I think what he did was wrong? Absolutely. Are we done…forever? Honestly, I don’t know.” Well, now she’s made a decision, and the pair is definitely calling it quits. In her tweets, she doesn’t mince words, writing “Many minds have inquired about whether I’m still with Dezmon Briscoe. Let it be clear that we are not together. I’m happy and super focused!I wish @Dezbriscoe89 the best but after much thought I found it 2 be n my best interest 2 walk away and focus on my career and my munchkin. :)

Let us know what you think of Royce’s decision to break it off with Dez. We’re sad to hear the news but Royce seems firm in her decision and we wish them both the best!

Gloria Govan Says Basketball Wives L.A. Is More Mature And There Will Be No Violence On The Show This Season


Now that the season of Basketball Wives is over and done, we turn our attention to Basketball Wives L.A. which is currently in production to see what’s going on with the West Coast ladies. Bossip caught up with Gloria Govan recently and they discussed two important issues: the drama surrounding the franchise, and whether or not Matt Barnes and Gloria are back together. The answer to the latter question is simple: Yes, they are. Though Gloria says their relationship won’t be a big part of the show next season. “Believe it or not, Godd—it, we ride or die, I guess!”

And as for the recent controversy surrounding the Miami cast, Gloria says there will be a lot less of that on her show. “Aside from the first fight that we had, like that was our first scene, Basketball Wives L.A. is a little bit more mature…don’t get me wrong, you’re definitely going to see drama…but you’re not gonna see us throwing bottles and trying to hit each other. I just think that’s overdone.” We’ve got the full clip on Gloria’s interview above.

Last night on Dr. Drew‘s show on HLN, Drew and Celebrity Rehab counselors Bob Forrest and Jennifer Gimenez got together to discuss the passing of Rodney King who appeared on season two of the show.

In the clip above, watch as the three rehabilitation experts discuss their time with King and Dr. Drew reveals his own reaction to King’s passing, saying “You know what happens to me when my patients die?
