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 addresses the continued “BS” and “foolery” (her words) with the fighting, and Evelyn focuses on the positive aspects of the episode like her photo shoot and birthday party, only devoting one sentence to Jen. We also grabbed a soundbite from Tami‘s blog which is pretty great this week as well. Here we go:
Jennifer writes on her blog:
And the BS continues…I honestly could not stomach to watch last week’s episode. I had lived through the craziness and to relive it was just too much for me. But I would like to clarify a few things. First up, I never had an issue with “the assistant” up until that day. At one point, we were good friends. We went out together, went to dinner, stayed at each other’s houses and shared plenty of good times and laughs. There had been some incidents leading up to why I started pulling away from the friendship but I don’t feel the need to blast that information. However, the most important reason why I eased up on the friendship is because she started working for someone who refers to themselves as my “enemy.” To me being good friends would just cause the situation to be messy so I rather fall back. No love lost and I like I said, I didn’t have any issue with her until she put her hands on me.
At least Tami got a souvenir from the big fight?
Single Ladies is going to heat up VH1 this summer, there’s no doubt about that. Check out LisaRaye McCoy, Charity Shea, and Denise Vasi in this brand new season two promo as they do their best to cool you off in advance…These three are easily the best looking ice cream saleswomen we’ve ever seen.
Single Ladies premieres Monday, May 28 at 9 p.m. ET/PT.
We just want to take a moment to send virtual hugs and high fives to La La Anthony, who appears in this weekend’s number one film at the box office, Think Like A Man. The film, based on the book Act Like A Lady, Think Like A Man, by Steve Harvey, stars about a million other talented people (Gabrielle Union, Kevin Hart, Terrence J, and Meagan Good to name a few, as well as our own La La), and early estimates show that it pulled in $33 million this weekend. Not everyone can say their film debut opened at number one, so we’re psyched for La La and the film’s achievement.

Master Matchmaker Steve Ward is back for another season of Tough Love, and each week, he’ll be giving us an exclusive look at what went down behind the scenes on the series. This week, we talked to Steve about the importance of being honest in an online profile, and how Donna’s emotions were out of hand on the hot seat.
Some of the women really didn’t have a sense of self-awareness during the online dating exercise, what did you think of how they did?
At Master Matchmakers, we have our own private dating service called out LoveLab, so we have a lot of experience with online dating, but what makes our service different is that everyone’s been interviewed and background checked and vetted. But if you look it up, there are statistics that say that eighty percent of people who do online dating lie about age, height, or weight when people are just using traditional dating sites. So you have to expect there to be a level of fabrication and a level of misrepresentation. But at the same time, there is such a thing as going too far, and I think some of the women neglected to mention some information that’s pertinent, like Tiffany, who neglected to mention she has kids. It’s important. But then you have Shalana who mentions in one breath that she’s never had a meaningful relationship and in another that she’s a single mom. That’s only going to leave men wondering. You need to be mindful about what someone’s going to insinuate after they read your profile.
How would you suggest Shalana explain her situation, because it’s true that it will raise eyebrows if you say you’re a single mom but you don’t consider the father meaningful. How can you work around that?
All we can say is “Wow” right now, after seeing some pictures of Love And Hip Hop star Somaya Reece as she attended the Tribeca Film Festival in New York this weekend.
Reece has undergone a breast reduction (which she’s been documenting in a series of video diaries — you can watch the latest one here) recently in addition to sticking to a weight loss regimen that has seriously paid off. (Not that she wasn’t beautiful before, but she looks seriously incredible right now.) What do you Love And Hip Hop fans think of her transformation??

This recap is going to start and end with some words to live by. Here we start with some from Drita.
