We caught up with La La Anthony recently — which is a miracle because the woman is doing SO much lately — to talk about the new season of La La’s Full Court Life and all of the other projects she’s juggling these days, and after our chat, we have to admit that we’re so excited for season two. In addition to the regular cast of characters that we know and love, La La’s bringing in some new faces, including radio DJ Charlemagne to the show, which you know is going to add some spice and drama to the mix. La La also talks about her new film, Think Like A Man, and who she’d vote for as the Greatest Woman In Pop Music. La La’s Full Court Life premieres on March 19 at 9 p.m. ET/PT.
I’m excited for season two of Full Court Life, what are some new things we can expect from the second season?
Thank you! I think we’ve upped the ante some, we’ve added some more characters, Charlemagne being the main new one that we’ve added from the radio. You know, he’s a shock jock and he says what everyone else is scared to say, which can be good and bad at the same time, but I think it offers people a string opinion to talk about when we’re dealing with issues on the show, so I’m excited to have him be a part of it.
Ever wonder where the concept of Jersey Shore came from? Or the origin of the duck phone? Or most importantly, which cast member first had sex in their grandmother’s car? Well, you’re welcome in advance, because you’re about to learn everything about this show that you ever wanted to know, thanks to Pop Up Jersey Shore. All weekend long, VH1 will be airing special Pop Up episodes of MTV’s biggest show ever, and we have an early look (as well as some of our favorite pop-up bubbles from the show below) to share with you. A full schedule of Pop Up Video: Jersey Shore is after the jump, so put on your comfiest Snooki slippers and settle in for a long weekend of guidos and boardwalk debauchery, with commentary.
Big Ang has a “Code Of Silence” tattoo and she comes from a long line of people who don’t reveal their secrets, but when Andy Cohen asked her point blank if she was Team Drita or Team Karen on Watch What Happens Live last night, she admitted outright that she was Team Drita. We can’t say that we’re surprised, it’s just that she’s always so neutral on the show.
More surprising though was the Mob Wives star’s answer to the question “What’s the craziest place that you’ve gotten it on?” Ang’s response: “The car. No! An airplane.” Ang sure loves her transportation. Check out the clip above.
“Oh my God, I gotta take off my robe??” Big Ang asks in this clip from next Sunday night’s Mob Wives, in which she and Drita get spray tans. Well, yeah, Ang, how else are you going to get that sun kissed look? Once the robe finally comes off though, we’re all in for an eyeful of those J-cups. “Really? Did you see Big Ang’s body? How sick is her body? It’s amazing. What?” Drita asks after catching a glimpse. But Drita’s body ain’t so bad either. You can see them both in the clip above.
Styled By June, VH1′s newest style show, will debut on Monday, March 19 at 9:30 p.m. ET/PT, but I was at the show’s swanky premiere party last night in New York to chat with June Ambrose herself and sneak a peek at some of her A-list friends from the fashion and music worlds who were also there. Ambrose has styled everyone from Mariah Carey to Mary J. Blige to Puff Daddy, so I expected to see some familiar faces, but I wasn’t sure if another one of her clients, Jay-Z, would show or if he’d be on diaper duty. Well, he did show up, and if you want to see me melt into a star struck puddle, last night was the time. Unfortunately, we were shuttled into the screening room to watch the first episode before I could try to make a fool of myself and talk to Jay (or photobomb one of the shots our VH1 photographer took of him…) but check out some of our pictures from the event featuring Ambrose and her co-stars and assistants, Rachel Heller and Eli Wasserman, along with Hova himself.

June Ambrose is about to teach the world a serious fashion lesson. Her brand new show, Styled By June, will debut on Monday night at 9:30 p.m. ET/PT, but during an advanced screening last night, we chatted with the fashion expert to get some idea of what she’s all about and why so many A-listers love her. (Jay-Z was among some of the celebs who showed up at the premiere last night so, yeah, she’s got some friends in high places.) The June you’ll see on the show is pretty much the same June I spoke to in real life — charming and funny, but a style genius (she’s responsible for some of the most iconic videos of the last ten years, like “Get Ur Freak On” and “Run This Town” to name just a couple) who knows everything you need to know about fashion. And she is gorgeous, so we’re failing to see any flaws so far. So before Styled By June premieres next Monday, here are eight things you need to know about June Ambrose.
1. She’s not just a stylist, she considers herself a styleologist.
“I’m a styleologist. I have been a styleologist for eighteen years, that’s why I love this show, it gave me the platform to show people what makes June Ambrose so special. What is it about this girl that she’s still around? I’m so passionate about it because I make a difference in people’s lives, that’s why I do it. It’s never been about money. What I loved about [my job as stylist on] The X Factor was helping to develop new talent and being able to create something from inception, from the ground up, and you become the style architect in that way. And then you have style renovations. With this show, it’s about creating from inception in some ways, but also about the renovations.”
Love and Hip Hop star Emily Bustamante has a pretty active Instagram account. When she’s not posting pictures of her and Fab on vacation, she’s posting awesome shots of herself as a kid, like the one above which we love. She captions this shot “Me at 13..Coney island.. Looking mean as always,” but we think the term she was really looking for is “looking badass, as always.”
This week has been pretty crazy, what with the cast of Basketball Wives taking to the internet to recap this most recent episode and call out their fellow cast members for their behavior on and off the screen. So in this week’s sneak peek, the ladies get together to talk about the last time they all got together to talk. Tami tells Shaunie about her confrontation with Kesha, but the drama is about to get even more heated because Shaunie is having a birthday party and everyone is invited. Ohh boy. Meanwhile, Suzie and Royce are down in North Carolina visiting Kesha in her hometown and the farm she grew up on. “Going from L.A. to Las Vegas, I’ve driven past farms, but I’ve never been on a farm,” Suzie explains. So this is going to be interesting.
Well this was not something we expected. Basketball Wives L.A. stars Jackie and Doug Christie have gotten into the game of producing their own TV show, as well as producing an adult film. First up is a TV show called Cali Boys, which is a reality show that focuses on making it in Hollywood. Jackie says about the show “The show will open the lives of the cast members up to the viewer in a no holds bar fashion and allow the viewer to accompany them on their journeys, which I’m honored to be a part of. And helping them all to realize their dreams.” She will co-produce with her husband as well as with actor Christian Keyes. The second project they’re working on as producers is an adult film. Yes, porn. Jackie told radio host Ricky Smiley this week “I’m producing an adult film, me and my husband Doug. We’re executive producing.” No word on what it will be called, but now we totally understand how they manage to keep their sixteen-year marriage spicy.
[UPDATE]: The Sacramento Bee reports that though Jackie called her project “an adult film,” it will actually be a mini-series about sexual intimacy. She says “It has adult content, and it definitely will have some surprises. It is for mature audiences, and yes, it will have nudity. But it will have a message, plots, and relate to real issues.” She says she and Doug chose to do this because it’s a passion project. “It’s one of the things on our bucket list. We wanted to help other couples, and while this is a very personal part of our relationship, this is an area where a lot of couples have problems. We also think this can help them with their communication.”
