In case you couldn’t tell from our interview with Single Ladies designer and guest star Anthony L. Williams, we adore this man. He was absolutely hilarious and charming to talk to, and his fashions speak for themselves. Last season he was the exclusive stylist for Stacey Dash when she appeared on the show as Val, and we were lucky enough to have him speak to us then about her style, and this season when we actually saw some of his designs up close, we were even more impressed. Now that you’ve seen last night’s show, we wanted to give you a few more photos of the dresses that Anthony designed, from the ones you saw on the ladies to a few you didn’t see that were just used as gorgeous set pieces. Oh, and click through the entire gallery to see the shoes this man rocked on set. In-sane.

“It’s not about them, it’s about us,” Mayte Garcia told Big Morning Buzz Live host Carrie Keagan today when she appeared, along with the rest of the cast of Hollywood Exes, on the morning show. Carrie had just asked how the women’s former husbands must feel knowing their exes are now on a VH1 reality show. “It’s all good. We’re doing our thing,” co-star Nicole Murphy added.
The five stars of the show, Garcia, Murphy, Sheree Fletcher, Jessica Canseco, and Andrea Kelly, appeared on Buzz and showed off the hilarious, sisterly camaraderie they share — seriously, this might be the most laughter-filled segment in TV history. Oh, and don’t get Jessica started on vaginal rejuvenation, because that’ll take over the conversation. We also have another clip of the women below as they play a dishy game with Carrie called “The Ex-Files” and talk about the best gifts they received from their old flames and the words they’d use to describe their exes now.
Hollywood Exes premieres on Wednesday night at 9 p.m. ET/PT.

“I ain’t trying to fight no more, I just wanna get that cake,” Lil Scrappy told the Breakfast Club when he appeared on the Power105.1 radio show yesterday. The star of Love And Hip Hop: Atlanta continued to make the rounds this week and talked about using the show as a means to an end (the end being a paycheck), and he talked more about his past relationship with Diamond, too.
In the clip above, Scrappy talks about how his mother, Momma Dee, and his baby mama Erica both have a problem with his ex, Diamond (rightfully so), and he also sets the record straight on his on-air scuffle with Stevie J, and the controversy around Joseline.
Love And Hip Hop: Atlanta airs Monday nights at 8 p.m. ET/PT.
Last week we told you about the Big Ang murals that have popped up in New York City and Chicago recently, and this week we have a very special video for you chronicling the making of these amazing pieces of art.
Set to a remix of some of Ang’s best quotes, this time lapse video of the anonymous artists hard at work on their larger-than-life Big Ang is impressive. If you haven’t found one of the murals in person, here’s a list of where to find them.
Big Ang premieres on Sunday, July 8 at 9 p.m. ET/PT.
Everything important on Single Ladies takes place at the boutique, doesn’t it? Which is why this week, the boutique gets an episode all its own. Raquel decides now that she’s the owner to rebrand and rename the store that bore Val’s initial, V, to something more neutral and more representative of her. And with that, Indulgence is born.

La La Anthony is famous for being herself, since she got her start as an MTV VJ and she’s most recognizable these days for her reality show, La La’s Full Court Life. The woman’s acting career is taking off these days, however. After a hugely successful role in Think Like A Man, she also has a guest spot on a couple of upcoming episodes of Single Ladies, which we can’t wait to see, starting with tonight’s episode. We spoke to La La while she was on the set of the show to ask her what it was like to film the show and, most importantly, what it’s like kissing a man that’s not Carmelo.
How is it being on the set down here in Atlanta?
I went to high school in Atlanta so my mom, my brother, my family is all here, so I’m working, but at the same time, I’m hanging out with my family, my son’s here, so it works out perfectly.
Tell me about the role you’re playing on the show.
I’m playing Presley, who’s actually Omar’s sister. This is a two episode arc, and I’m really enjoying it, I love having the excuse to come to Atlanta. I’m enjoying it. I think playing someone’s sister gives you the excuse to come back again.
Do you have a love interest on the show?
I do have a love interest, Omar Gooding, he’s Cuba Gooding Jr.’s younger brother. He plays Marcus, and the story is that he’s a bit of a homophobe and my brother is homosexual. I love it because that’s real life issues. And I had to kiss him like twenty times.
[Laughs] It was okay.
I always imagine that it’s weird for an actor, leaving your husband at home to go make out with someone else.
It’s not really weird, it’s just not as sensual as it looks on screen. It’s like “Cut! Again! Cut! Again!” It’s just work.

Sheree Fletcher met her ex-husband Will Smith on the set of A Different World, and after her friend slipped Will her number, they dated, got married, and had a son. But then divorce came. (“Divorce is the death of a dream,” she says.) Occasionally the shadow of Will looms over Sheree, like when she used to have to tell the men she dated who her ex is, and said that “One guy literally almost drove off the road,” when she told him. She’s now happily remarried to Terrell Fletcher, a football player-turner-pastor.
To learn more about Sheree, tune in to Hollywood Exes when it premieres Wednesday, June 27 17 9 p.m. ET/PT.
Anthony L. Williams is best known for being a fan favorite on Project Runway‘s seventh season. He was so beloved for his personality and (occasionally over-the-top) fashion creations that he was brought back from Project Runway All-Stars this year, all the while styling and designing looks for the second season of Single Ladies. Williams will have an even bigger role on the Atlanta-based show this season, because he’ll also appear in tonight’s episode. We spoke to Williams on the set about his role as an actor, his methods as a designer for the show, and his elimination from Project Runway, which he doesn’t regret for a minute.
Is being in front of the camera new and exciting for you?
It is new because I work in the background. Clearly I’ve been in the front of the camera dealing with Project Runway All-Stars, Project Runway, and other media stuff that I’ve done. It’s very fun. It seems to come for very natural for me. I’m really enjoying it. I think it gives me a greater appreciation for what these women do.
On Project Runway you’re known for coming up with these great, funny quips, do they let you improvise at all on the show?
Yes! The show writer, Stacy A. Littlejohn, has been so accommodating. She really wanted me to — she really just laid a foundation and wanted me to run with it myself. I’m very concerned with making sure that the vision that she has,I want to make sure it’s realized. So, I think that when you are a designer or a stylist, your job is always to accommodate someone else’s vision or, you know, understand where that person is trying to go. Even though she’s given me freedom, I most definitely want to respect her vision and where she was trying to go even with my part.
My vocabulary is expanding rapidly thanks to Mob Wives Chicago, and in the first scene from this week’s episode, we learn what Christina now thinks of her former friend, Pia: “She’s a two-faced beefer.” Read more…
