Shaunie O’Neal has always had great taste, which she often displays on Basketball Wives. But as you can see from our gallery of Shaunie’s looks from the past decade, the woman has always had adventurous and immaculate taste. (Okay, there might be one or two outfits in here that are dated, but she still pulls them off which is the amazing thing.) We just spoke to Shaunie during our special livestream event and she gave us the down low on a few of her past looks, but here’s a look at a decade’s worth of her sartorial savvy.
The Basketball Wives Livestream
During today’s Basketball Wives livestream broadcast, we spoke to Royce Reed about her style through the years. She told us that when it comes to the proportion of sneakers compared to dresses in her closet, the ratio is 20 pairs of sneakers to every one dress. She’s a casual lady, what can we say? Check out our gallery below for all the looks that Royce talked about with us, and stay tuned for the rest of the livestream which will be broadcast until 3 p.m. ET/PT today!
Statuesque Suzie Ketcham would make a pretty great model, in my opinion, and she definitely knows how to work an outfit, whether it’s red carpet formal or jeans and a t-shirt. During our Basketball Wives Livestream today, Suzie was all decked out and even gave me some insight about her past outfits, and here are a few of the looks we discussed (and a couple extras for good measure — nice to see her hanging with Gloria, too!).

Tami Roman has been a staple of our televisions for almost as long as we can remember. From her stint on The Real World almost twenty years ago, until now, we’ve been following her evolution closely. Part of that evolution has included her style, and we were so happy that we got to talk to Tami today during the Basketball Wives Livestream about her looks through the years. We only spoke to Tami about a few of her many outfits, but we have so many more in our archive, so please, enjoy them all. Caution: some of the clothes are super-90s, but no matter which decade she dresses for, she definitely looks great.

Just in case you weren’t sure where to find the Basketball Wives livestream event online, the VH1 blog will be broadcasting the special photo shoot/Q&A/Twitter sweepstakes today from 11 a.m. until 3 p.m. ET, so bookmark this page or stick with us as we spend time with the cast and continuously update you via Twitter, Facebook, and the blog on every last development that happens at the shoot.
We’ve already hung out with the cast this week, so don’t miss this photo gallery of our visits with the ladies, and check back for even more bonus interviews and photos next week!
Oh, Renee and Drita, how we heart you guys. These two Mob Wives might be hard-a**es, but they’re also a comic duo for the ages. They appeared on VH1′s 40 Winningest Winners Of 2011 special this week (the full list of winners is over here!) and we have a special clip of them terrorizing host Amy Schumer. “Give me one good reason why we should let you host this year end special,” Renee asks. “Like, did you ever date a basketball player, a rapper, a wiseguy, a gangster, anything? Like, what the f—?” Drita follows up. After a pep talk and a mobalicious makeover, they turn Amy into a host VH1 can be proud of. And after the jump, watch as the pair steal poor Amy’s lunch money.
In anticipation of our big Basketball Wives livestream event tomorrow (starting at 11am ET!), I spent the day driving all over downtown Miami today visiting with Evelyn Lozada, Jennifer Williams, Suzie Ketcham, and Tami Roman. I would have met with Shaunie, Royce and the new ladies, Kesha and Kenya, as well, but there aren’t enough hours in the day. Miami is exhausting, guys.
I spent some time with Jennifer, Tami, and Suzie at their apartments (maybe you saw a picture of Jennifer’s view earlier? If you didn’t, be sure to follow me on Twitter for pics and quotes throughout the livestream tomorrow), and I even caught up with Evelyn as she was filming a scene, which was exciting to watch as it was happening. Check out my gallery from today with pics of all the women, and tune in tomorrow at basketballwives.vh1.com for so much more!
We know there are a lot of fans of La La Anthony out there, and you’ll all be thrilled to hear that La La’s Full Court Life will be returning for another season in 2012. Personally, we’re as psyched for the return of Po, Dice, and Kiyan as we are for La La herself, we miss this whole cast. For more information about season two, check out the press release below, and if you miss La La like we do, maybe it’s time to revisit our mega-gallery of La La’s best looks throughout the years.
VH1 GOES INTO OVERTIME AS “LA LA’S FULL COURT LIFE” GETS
SECOND SEASON PICKUP
It’s been two days since we heard that actress Denise Vasi earned a starring role on Single Ladies, and the gorgeous Vasi spoke to Entertainment Weekly about the series today. Here are some of our favorite quotes from the interview as Vasi discussed her exciting new role as Raquel and how she got the job.
Vasi on her character, Raquel:
Raquel is going to come back and stir the pot in a different way and bring some exciting new energy. We don’t wanna say too much.
On her audition process for the role:
When you see a network take so much time and they’re really specific, you know that they care about that show and it makes you wanna get the job even more because you know they appreciate who their audience is and what they’re looking for…I got the great opportunity to screentest with Lisa[Raye McCoy] which was really fun.
On how she got involved with the show:
Obviously the show was a huge success and I had the conversation with my manager. “Let’s keep an eye out if anything comes up even guest-star wise for the show.” A casting sheet went out and I went in and read the first time and I was lucky enough to come back again and read a second time. Then I read in New York and I read one more time in LA. We had a few work sessions and then I screen-tested.
On whether or not she’s a single lady in real life:
Well I’m not a married lady [laughs]. Trust me I’ve done a lot of dating. I’ve got a lot of stories. I definitely have a lot to pull from.
On her resemblance to the show’s former star, Stacey Dash:
We have similar features so that’s a great compliment, yeah.

Olivia Longott is a busy woman, but we’re so lucky and thrilled that she’s going to be giving us some exclusive episode commentary every week during this season of Love And Hip Hop.
Hmmmm… So I see u guys enjoyed last night’s show. Where can we start today with Chrissy and Kim, or Kim and Em? Let’s start with Kim and Em. lol
I’m so proud of Emily for standing her ground and letting Kim know that she didn’t, doesn’t, and won’t ever agree with her past actions, but it’s also big of Kim to try and make amends. I will not discuss the hair on fire incident, let’s just leave that alone. And fyi, I was superimposed with men on my lap — that was not me. Now although the party was fun and I had a good time with the girls, as far as Chrissy and Kim, I think Kim tryin’ to get an apology is never gonna happen. What needs to happen is they just need to stay away from each other and keep the peace. Nancy, Jim and Chrissy, I’m glad things are going well and they have finally gotten to the point where they are giving each other a chance.
Yandy and Chrissy we just have to wait and see…
(And by the way, we here at the VH1 Blog know that despite what Wayne Williams thinks, “December” is still at the top of our charts, so go ahead and download it over on iTunes!)
