Basketball Wives Sneak Peek: A Little To The Left


Last week we all got a taste of what Kenya (and her music videos) were like. This week it’s Evelyn‘s turn. In this sneak peek from the third episode of Basketball Wives, Evelyn, Suzie, Kesha and Kenya meet up and Evelyn finally gets a chance to meet the woman behind the YouTube clips. Evelyn’s very first impression? “Her weave looks like a wig. Like, it’s a little to the left.” It gets better from there. Kind of. Just watch.

Basketball Wives airs Monday night at 8 p.m. ET/PT.

Jim Jones Arrested And Released Again After Facing Allegedly Bogus Charges


Jim Jones‘ trouble with the law continues, he was arrested once again, this time in New York City on charges of driving with a suspended license. Jones was arrested yesterday but release just a few hours later, and a rep for him stated that it was a mistake, saying “Jim does not have a suspended license.” TMZ also reports that the arrest was bogus because he had been sitting in the passenger’s seat when cops asked him to move the car, and when he got out to drive it, they arrested him.

This dustup has nothing to do with his arrest just three days ago at Foxwoods Casino in Connecticut though, where he was taken in by police and charged with assault on a police officer and breach of peace.

When your network has several shows that are about the lives of basketball wives, it makes sense that several of the stars should show up for the NBA’s All-Star Weekend. We’ve been keeping an eye on who was out an about in Orlando for the past few days that led up to the All-Star game, and while La La Anthony wins the award for hitting the most events (often with her pal, Gabrielle Union and her hubby, All-Star forward, Carmelo Anthony), others like Emily Bustamante, Gloria Govan, Somaya Reece, and Jackie and Doug Christie were having fun in Florida, too. Check out our gallery of stars who were there.
