Dr. Jenn Berman has been counseling people and offering advice to people in need for some twenty years now, but on VH1′s Couples Therapy, this marks her first time working with a group of ten celebrities whose relationships are in desperate need of repair. We’ll be checking in with Dr. Jenn each week to chat about the progress of her patients on the show, and what she really thinks of their behavior. This week on the show, Dr. Jenn was moved by Kasey Kahl‘s breakthrough at the end of the show, and talks about the genuine support the cast showed one another.
This week, you were genuinely moved by your session with Kasey.
This was my big session with him, that was very meaningful for both of us. There were some things that Kasey had been carrying around from his childhood that were really affecting how he felt about himself, how he saw himself and how he related in all his relationships. He didn’t realize how much this experience he had had affected him until we started talking about it. It was very emotional for me because it was such a painful experience that he described that it touched me to the core to hear he had such a horrible, painful experience and was carrying it around for so long. It pained me.
Through the magic of magic (and also, technology), Stevie Ryan was able to ask herself some hard-hitting questions when she visited our offices recently. Questions like “Which high profile breakup upsets you the most?” and “What celeb do you want to be BFFs with?” The answers
may will definitely surprise you. Check out our Stevie on Stevie interview to find out more about the star’s pop culture knowledge, and to watch glitter fly out of her mouth just like Tinkerbell.
Stevie TV airs Sunday nights at 11 p.m. ET/PT on VH1.
On May 1, VH1 will be premiering a new film from its Rock Docs series, entitled UPRISING: Hip Hop And The L.A. Riots. For anyone who lived through the 1992 L.A. riots that resulted after the beating of Rodney King, you will be completely transported back to the time when the entire country felt that justice had not been served, and unrest was at its peak. To anyone who wasn’t around at the time, the parallels that can be drawn between what happened then and what’s been happening today in the news are undeniable. UPRISING focuses not just on the news of that day, but how it affected and directly influenced hip hop as we know it. Watch the trailer for the film, which is narrated by Snoop Dogg, above, and tune in on May 1 at 9 p.m. ET/PT for one of our most stunning docs yet.
VH1′S EMMY AWARD-WINNING “VH1 ROCK DOCS” FRANCHISE RECOGNIZES THE 20TH ANNIVERSARY OF THE L.A. RIOTS WITH
“UPRISING: HIP HOP AND THE L.A. RIOTS” PREMIERING TUESDAY, MAY 1 AT 9PM*
NEW YORK, NY-April 4, 2012- It has been 20 years since the L.A. Riots, the four days of unrest, looting and rage that paralyzed Los Angeles and sent racial shockwaves throughout the country. After decades of racial tension in South Central Los Angeles, VH1′s Emmy Award-winning “VH1 Rock Docs” franchise explores the connection between the violence manifested on the streets during the 1992 riots and the rage expressed in Hip Hop by NWA, Dr. Dre, Ice T, and Ice Cube among others with VH1′s “UPRISING: Hip Hop and the L.A. Riots” premiering Tuesday, May 1 at 9PM ET/PT on VH1.
Words can’t explain how much I covet the new hairstyle that La La Anthony showed off at the premiere of her new film, Think Like A Man. Unfortunately, I don’t think I could pull off two-toned hair quite like she can. La La was in Atlanta last night for the premiere of the film, along with the rest of the cast and a few other A-listers like T.I., Nelly, Gabrielle Union, and Tyler Perry, and we have some of the best shots from the evening. Everyone looked amazing, but I especially can’t get over how gorgeous Keshia Knight-Pulliam looked. See for yourself in our gallery.

We’ve already introduced you to the new cast of Tough Love New Orleans and shown you a quick promo from this season, so the only thing left to do before the show’s April 15th premiere is show you our extended supertrailer. Watch to find out which of these ladies is the “most socially awkward woman” Steve Ward has ever met, whose behavior is not very lady-like, and who’s “full of s—.” This is going to be insane.
In case you missed our Face To Face conversation with Evelyn Lozada last night, we just wanted to let you know that the whole thing is now up on VH1.com. Evelyn was participating from her home down in Miami, and her fiance Chad Ochocinco happened to be home at the time, so he popped in for a few minutes too. Ocho was only on-camera for a moment or two, but you have to love the fact that in just a few seconds of screen time, he explained their relationship perfectly: “I wear the pants, she controls the zipper.” Something tells us their spinoff is going to be hilarious.
For more with Evelyn and Ocho, watch the full chat here.
Each week on this season of Basketball Wives, we’ve been doing our best to keep up with the recaps and blog posts the cast of the show has been writing to give their side of what’s really going down. This week Jennifer took some time off from writing, but Evelyn and Tami each wrote some pretty great posts (as in, they do NOT hold back), and we’ve got excerpts from each of them here. For their complete posts, check out their sites which are linked below. (And since Evelyn’s Tami impression was too good last night, we’re just re-posting it again here because why not?)
Here’s Evelyn’s writeup:
…To sum it up, talking reckless about me helped [Kenya] get on the show. *claps hands* Good job Crazy As Hell Kenya Bell, happy that I was able to keep you relevant.
When Corri McFadden visited Big Morning Buzz Live today, not only was she promoting her show, House of Consignment, she was also put to work, assessing the value of some of BMBL’s most treasured possessions. Items like Jason Dundas‘ mantyhose and Carrie Keagan‘s fake face nails. (If you have no idea what either of those things are, shame on you for not watching Big Morning Buzz regularly!) Check out the hilarious clip above for Corri’s evaluation of just how much these luxury items are worth. It’s kind of like Antiques Roadshow…if Antiques Roadshow aired on VH1.
House of Consignment airs Wednesday night at 10 p.m. ET/PT.
The cast of Single Ladies grows hotter by the day — that’s not a matter of opinion, it’s a fact at this point. When we posted some shots from the set recently, it was impressive enough that on one day of shooting, guest stars like T.I., La La Anthony, and Romeo Miller were wandering around, but this week is equally star-studded and the plain fact is that some of the hottest people we’ve ever seen are popping up on this show for season two. People like Pilar Sanders, who’s back, and hopefully plans to take it easy on poor April this time around, and recently announced Hollyoaks actor Ricky Whittle, who will be guesting as one of Denise Vasi‘s love interests (earning her the title of luckiest woman working in the TV biz).
Here are some of our favorite recent shots from the set of the show — tell us, is this not one of the most attractive groups of people you’ve ever seen or what?

House Of Consignment star Corri McFadden is one of those people who is effortlessly stylish, as you can see from our Style Seen photos here. Dressed in a fairly minimalist outfit, black pant, purple top, colorful accessories, she managed to convey classic feminine style with a blast of “Spring Is Here!”
She told us that she doesn’t necessarily dress for the season, she dresses for the weather, a tip we’re now going to take to heart because we couldn’t bring ourselves to leave our wool sweaters and chunky boots behind, even during this unseasonably warm stretch we’ve endured on the East Coast. We’ll be sharing more of Corri’s style tips on the blog very soon, but for now, check out her photos below (including a necklace from her brand new jewelry line), and tune in to House Of Consignment every Wednesday night at 10 p.m. ET/PT.
