What does Renee Graziano do when she’s not filming Mob Wives? Oh, you know, she just hangs around with 50 Cent. Graziano tweeted earlier today “Spent the day up @ GUNIT w the #MUSICMOGULMILLIONAIRE @50cent” and posted the picture of herself getting snuggly with 50.
50 has made no secret of the fact that he loves the Mob Wives, and Renee in particular, and he’s Tweeted about them in the past writing “I’m bugging, I really like this ‘Mob Wives’ show, Renee Graziano, she is crazy, I love her.” Looks like the feeling is mutual, Graziano also Tweeted about her new pal’s business savvy, saying “I gotta say 50 is def 1 of the smartest business men I knw!” Graziano was visiting the G-Unit Radio studio for an interview.

Well, if the Season 3 premiere wasn’t drama, I must be able to dress. JOKES!!!!!
Le’ts just start off by saying “It’s going to be a LONG SEASON, and you haven’t seen ANYTHING YET!” Ok, let’s just get to it!
A lot of people are talking about the two-hour premiere of Single Ladies, which aired last night. (Including us — check out our recap for a Single Ladies primer.) The show, which stars Stacey Dash, LisaRaye McCoy, and Charity Shea, has also caught the eye of several critics. While it’s true that the series does focus on the lives of three single women who love fashion, dating, and the city they live in, rest assured it “isn’t just the wanna-be Southern cousin of Sex and the City. It’s got a life of its own.” You don’t have to take our word for it, that’s actually what the New York Daily News said. Check out our review rundown to find out what others are saying about the sexy new show:
Jeff Conaway‘s struggles with addiction and poor health tended to overshadow his acting talent toward the end of his life, but he wasn’t without his admirers who remember him for his huge talent and bigger heart. Over the weekend, several of his celebrity friends and former co-stars spoke out to honor Conaway, who passed away on Friday, May 27 a day after doctors removed him from life support after he fell into a coma.
Conaway’s sister, Carla Shreve, told TMZ that his Grease co-star John Travolta sent flowers and food to the family and Travolta released a statement that called Conaway “a wonderful and decent man.” Olivia Newton-John, who was not only Conaway’s co-star but his sister-in-law for five years also paid her respects, saying “Jeff had a good heart and was so very talented. He was a big part of our family for many years and he will be missed.”
Marilu Henner, who kept a bedside vigil for Conaway in his last days, starred with the actor on Taxi. “He reminded me of one of my brothers and I reminded him of one his sisters, so we had a real family bond,” she said. Fellow Taxi actor Danny DeVito called Conaway “a good man,” and said “I will always think of him fondly and of our days together with the Taxi family. Finally he’s at peace.”
In a longer interview, Celebrity Rehab star Dr. Drew Pinsky revealed an inside look at Conaway’s struggles with his childhood and his addictions. After the jump, read what the good doctor had to say about Conaway’s traumatic life and the way that the man “lit up the lives” of those around him.
We’re sad to report that Christopher “Peter Brady” Knight and Adrianne “America’s First Top Model” Curry are separating after five years of marriage.
The pair met on the set of VH1′s The Surreal Life and subsequently went on to chronicle their relationship on three seasons of My Fair Brady. Knight, 53, and Curry, 28, were an unlikely couple, as this recent statement released by their manager makes clear. “After starting a relationship with what seemed to be irreconcilable differences, the couple has reached a period where those differences are no longer appreciated,” it states. “The decision was mutually reached after it became clear to both that some perspective was needed in order to assess their unique union.”
Curry tweeted about the breakup yesterday as well, writing “so yeah, guess you heard about my f—ed up life……its ok…we arent fighting…no matter what happens, we will know we put our best in.” That tweet came a few days after she hinted at the breakup when she wrote “I am Mrs knight the III, and most likely not the last…least, thats my saying :P hahahahaha.” If nothing else, at least she’s keeping her sense of humor about the separation. As unlikely as this couple was, we really thought these kids might make it work.

We’ve seen the drama that can occur when Saddle Ranch star Rachel Lay gets a few drinks in her on the show (poor boyfriend Robb, always dealing with her messes), but now she’s managed to get herself in trouble with the law as well because of the booze. TMZ reports that Lay was arrested on March 9 in California for driving under the influence with a blood alcohol level of .22. She was scheduled to appear in front of a judge on March 23 but she skipped her court date and currently has a bench warrant out for her arrest.
Lay tells TMZ that she currently has a May 31st court date to address the issue. But does Saddle Ranch manager Candy give time off for court appearances, or will Rachel get written up for taking off work?

After Queen Latifah and LisaRaye McCoy visited Big Morning Buzz Live last week to talk about their new show, Single Ladies, we got the chance to sit down with LisaRaye to talk a bit more about the new show. The series is set and shot in Atlanta, so we had some questions about the city, which LisaRaye explains, is turning into a “mini-L.A.”
When we asked her what it’s like to portray a character like Keisha Greene, a woman with many suitors, she told us that she’s a pro at love scenes by now. “You meet and you’re like hi, how are you? And then your tongue is all down each other’s throat.” Lucky for her, she doesn’t seem to mind that, and she’s having fun living vicariously through Keisha.
Single Ladies premieres on Monday, May 30 at 9 p.m. ET/PT, immediately following the premiere of the new season of Basketball Wives.
A toast to our new friends, the Single Ladies. They don’t really need any introduction, but we’re going to give them one anyway.
Welcome back to another dramatic season of Basketball Wives! May I present to you the biggest F’N factor of all, this one t-shirt.
Oh, Saddle Ranch. If you didn’t cater to women like this who straddle mechanical bulls in a mini-dress, we’re just sure Dave and Nancee would have gotten together by now. Alas. At least Nick and Cassie are hitting it off.
