“When people find out that I’m Prince‘s ex-wife, sometimes they can’t believe it, or sometimes they just can’t believe, wow, you’re normal. People think that we’re weird. We’re not weird, we’re just artistic,” Hollywood Exes star Mayte Garcia explains in the clip above.
She started her career in showbiz at the age of eight when she was the world’s youngest professional belly dancer, and she met Prince at 16, thanks to her mother’s persistence and attempts to get her a job as one of his dancers. They married six years later, and enjoyed a pretty normal life together, it wasn’t until after they were divorced that she experienced the culture shock of life as a single woman. Though she was briefly engaged to Tommy Lee, Mayte is currently single and living with her mom in Los Angeles, and she’s on the hunt for a new man…preferably not one in the music industry.
Hollywood Exes premieres Wednesday, June 27 at 9 p.m. ET/PT.

Renee doesn’t like Pia on Mob Wives Chicago. But aside from the fact that Renee thinks Pia’s not classy, what else could she have against her? Well, for one thing, she’s pretty sure Pia slept with Dave. Dave is Renee’s boyfriend, by the way. So yeah, that could be a problem.
Watch the sneak peek above to watch their argument play out and tune in to Mob Wives Chicago on Sunday at 8 p.m. ET/PT to find out the real story.

As we mentioned earlier, when we were on the set of Single Ladies during filming this season, we played a game of questions with the cast to get to know them a little bit better. We were lucky enough to be around when some of the show’s awesome guest stars like T.I., Romeo Miller, and La La Anthony, as well as show creator Stacy A. Littlejohn, were also on hand to answer them, so here are a couple more clips of our favorite cast telling us just what they would do in some interesting, occasionally sexy, often uncomfortable situations. Seriously, why is T.I. so funny? Someone should give him his own show. Part two of our Q and A is after the jump.
The cast of Single Ladies is one of the most fun groups of people we’ve had the pleasure of meeting, so we decided to play a little game with them during a recent set visit. We brought a collection of questions from a popular board game from the 80′s and asked them to answer the questions, which can sometimes get a little dirty, as honestly as possible. Even though we gave them a stack of twenty questions to rifle through, every one of them ended up choosing this one: “While walking along a deserted section of beach, you see a couple engaged in sex. Do you stay to watch?” The answers, which are hilarious, range from “Why would I not stay to watch?” (thank you, Charity Shea) to “This is a perverted question,” but that last response came from guest star Romeo Miller who’s the youngest of the bunch, so maybe he just needs some time to come around. Coming up a little later on the VH1 Blog, we’ll have some of the cast’s answers to even more questions so stay tuned.
Single Ladies airs on Monday nights at 9 p.m. ET/PT.
Last night during her stop in Atlanta for her book tour, Evelyn Lozada stopped by Kandi Burruss‘ online chat show Kandi Koated Nights to discuss all things sex. She was also joined by Momma Dee from Love And Hip Hop: Atlanta and the chat got prettttty intimate pretty fast. The topic of the evening’s show was “Why do women work so hard to keep a man?” and there were plenty of opinions in the room on that topic. You can watch the full interview here (Evelyn and Momma Dee join the conversation around the 33:40 mark) but after the jump, we’ve broken down some of the highlights, which also happen to be the most crazy TMI moments. Caution: most of this language is NSFW, this is a sex show after all.
Hollywood Exes star Jessica Canseco met her ex-husband Jose when she was a waitress at Hooters. In classic boy-meets-girl fashion, Jose sat a her table, slipped her his number, and the rest is history. Her life was pretty insane while they were together (keeping crazy hours, going to the gym at midnight, sleeping in until 1 p.m.) and life was actually really great for them until the cheating started and Jessica wanted a more stable family life. Jessica is focusing on herself and her fifteen-year-old daughter now, but she still has some love for her ex. See what Jessica is all about in her cast profile and tune in to Hollywood Exes on Wednesday, June 27 at 9 p.m. ET/PT.
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 airs Mondays at 8 p.m.
