Tough Talk With Steve Ward – Episode 3 – The Zapper

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 Tiffany‘s surprising progress, and the return of the zapper.

You guys have done a game show every season, so how did you think “Turned Off” stacked up to past seasons’ game shows?

All the other seasons of game shows were also done in front of a studio audience, and for this one, the audience was really the guys on stage, and then the girls became the audience. I think “Turned Off” was very insightful for the women.

Were any of the women truly shocked by how they came across to the men?

Tough Love New Orleans Episode 3: Turned Off

Despina admits that she’s always wanted to be on a game show, and this week on Tough Love New Orleans, her dream comes true. Steve has arranged for all the women to be contestants on Turned Off, a game show that’s sweeping the nation, where women admit something about themselves and a panel of men tell them whether it’s a turn-on or a turn-off. Okay maybe this game isn’t quite sweeping the nation just yet. The men respond to what the women say by hitting a red light or a green light (green for turned on, red for turned off), so the women can see just how good or bad their conversation skills are.

Mob Wives – Episode 15 – Crack Her Jaw


The last time we saw Renee, she was heading in to her father’s hearing, and this week, we pick up at the courthouse. You could say it didn’t go well. Inside the courtroom, old friends and family who have turned on Renee filled the gallery and refused to speak to her, all because of what Junior did, but that didn’t matter so much because the one person who showed her forgiveness was her father.
Though they haven’t spoken for ages and he’s showing signs of frailty, he made loving gesture to her and that’s all Renee needed. “To see him look at me with nothing but love, I felt welcome in spite of the way everybody else felt,” she says.

Linda Hogan Appears On Big Morning Buzz Live To Discuss Couples Therapy And DMX

Linda Hogan‘s relationship with the much-younger Charley Hill has been a topic that’s been up for debate for the past four years, and Linda admitted today on Big Morning Buzz Live that she’s well aware of their public perception. Which is pretty much why she and Charley chose to be on Couples Therapy (which airs right here on VH1 on Wednesdays at 10 p.m. ET/PT). Their relationship is a healthy one, but Linda’s familiar with the scrutiny and judgment that comes from the court of public opinion. “You have to be willing to trust and you have to roll the dice,” Linda says, which is why she’s let go of some of her trust issues and is in a good place with Charley. “I’m going to give it my all this time…And things are great with us.”

She also discusses one of the most emotional story lines on the show, DMX‘s breakdown over his relationship with his mother. “It was a good time for him to break it down and let it out,” she says. “Coming clean was just so healing…It gave you goosebumps to see a man that famous just come to his knees. It was a healing thing for everybody.”

Denise Vasi Reveals A Little More About Her Character On Single Ladies


Denise Vasi has been spending the last five months or so settling into her character, an Atlanta society gal with a heart of gold named Raquel Lancaster, on Single Ladies. We’ve spoken to her about the character and she’s told us that Raquel “comes from high society Atlanta…[but] Raquel doesn’t come with the pretentiousness that she could.”

In a new interview with Sister 2 Sister Magazine, Vasi elaborates even further on the character. Vasi explains “Raquel, when you first meet her, she’s going to go through something that propels her into this life-changing journey. She goes through something that drops in her life like a bomb, and she spends the rest of the season figuring out what she wants.” Her character is an old friend of Keisha’s, but she explains where she’s been hiding saying “She’s a longtime friend of Keisha’s. Raquel used to summer with her aunt who lived next door to Keisha. So, they used to spend their summers together, and they’ve been like sisters ever since. They’ve always communicated. We just didn’t see Raquel ’cause Raquel was traveling for work.” You can read the full interview with Denise to find out more back story and what to expect from Raquel, and tune in to the Single Ladies season premiere Monday, May 28 at 9 p.m. ET/PT.

    Basketball Wives Episode 11 Sneak Peek: She’s Pushing Me To The Edge


    Jennifer should know by now that she shouldn’t be giving interviews to websites and magazines, because it will only ignite the fire that fuels Evelyn. On the next episode of Basketball Wives, we learn that Jennifer has been doing just that, and Ev, Nia, and Tami are in disbelief that she would discuss their business with the world. “When you talk too much, you stir the pot,” Evelyn says. “And then you cause problems and people want to f— you up.” And I don’t think I need to remind you that these women all have a group vacation coming up, so that’s going to be fun. Watch the sneak from next Monday’s episode, and tune in at 8 p.m. ET/PT for the show.
