“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 andDrita 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. Read more…
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.” Read more…
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 Wivestaking 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. Read more…
Well this was not something we expected. Basketball Wives L.A. starsJackie 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.”
“Chrissy is a lot…we have similarities in the sense that I can’t keep my peace sometimes,” Monica admitted. “I like to speak exactly how I feel.” And Brandy pointed to a picture of Olivia and gushed “This girl sings.” Watch our entire interview with the superfans above. Read more…
Olivia Longott stopped by 106 And Park this week to show off her video for “Walk Away”, and while she was there, she chatted about this past season of Love And Hip Hop as well as hinting about a third season. “Yeah, we are coming back for a third season,” she said on the show. “Are you guys ready for Love And Hip Hop season three?”
Despite showing some of the rough patches in her life, Olivia still loves being on the show, saying “It’s dope because you never has shows that really showed love and hip hop and that’s really what the show is about.” And check out the clip below in which Olivia reveals that she’s not exactly what she seems on the show. “People don’t know that Olivia is a comedian,” she says. “You always see me serious on the show or it looks like I’m down because they want me to look that way, and that’s really not who I am.”
For the first few weeks of the season, we noticed that bothEvelyn Lozada and Jennifer Williams had been maintaining their own blogs in order to give their own sides of the story presented onscreen onBasketball Wives, and we have been excerpting portions of them to give you a complete look at what’s really going on behind the scenes. In addition, we always post Royce Reed‘s recaps, and this week Royce made it known that she wasn’t thrilled with Tami’s behavior on the show, and that prompted Tami to blog as well, so this week we have a special post: Here’s Tami’s response to Royce’s blog post, which is, like Tami, no B.S. (We’ve edited this down, so be sure to visit her site to read the entire post.):
I usually don’t blog, but I felt a need to address a few things… Read more…
Last week, our esteemed colleagues at Tuner spoke to rapper French Montana, who just cast Drita D’Avanzo in his upcoming video “Everything’s A Go.” He said “I love a gangster chick,” and revealed that in the video, he’ll be robbing a bank and she’s going to be his getaway driver. “She’s the best one that fit that role,” he explained. And Drita could not be more excited. As a longtime fan of Montana’s she told us yesterday that she’s basically going insane with excitement, but that she’s going to have to keep her distance on the video set because she tends to fall in love with bad boys. Oh, and this isn’t Drita’s first appearance in a music video. She told us about her first video, for Frankee‘s “FU Right Back” from a few years ago, and of course we dug that up, you can watch it below.
So you’re going to be starring in the new French Montana video —
YES! [To everyone in the room] Do you know I’m doing French Montana’s music video?? Do you know how excited I am?
I want to hear how excited you are.
SO EXCITED. You know I’m a huge rap fan, this is huge for me.
How did you get hooked up with him, have you been a fan for a while?
I’ve been a fan of his. I know the music, I know the song, it’s crazy to me. Anything to do with rap, especially gangsta rap, is my cup of tea. I know everything about it, I know underground musicians, all those artists, and he’s amazing, so I’m pumped. Read more…
