Before this season of Why Am I Still Single?! began, we found several single folks who were in need of some love lessons from love coach Siggy Flicker. None of them had serious issues the way some of the clients on the show have, but they all needed a boost. This week’s target is Jill, a staffer here at VH1 (hi, Jill!) who’s been burned by love in the past. Read more…
This week on Why Am I Still Single?!Siggy Flicker tried to find love for James, a metal head rocker with a mullet and a heart of gold (seriously, I love this guy. And he takes care of his Nana!), and Alexis, a serious lady who carries a lot of past-relationship baggage. In fact, she carries an entire bag of resentment over a rotisserie chicken she never got to eat. Alexis is looking for someone who will treat her with kindness and respect and yes, buy her a chicken for dinner if she asks for it, and James needs a girl with a passion for music and creativity who he can lavish with compliments and his great (but timid) personality. We’re curious what you think about these two…would you rather date someone like Alexis who’s put-together and attractive, but she’s hung up on her past, or James, who is as sweet as pie, but needs some lessons in manners and dressing well?
For a few more shots of our troubled daters, check out our gallery below. (Including a shot of James’ incredible makeover!)

Basketball Wives L.A. star Jackie Christie has graciously offered to write a column for the VH1 blog with the advice and wisdom she’s picked up after years of marriage to retired NBA star Doug Christie.

In her interview with us, Tanya Gracereiterates a common theme among the cast of Baseball Wives, that girlfriends of baseball players definitely have it tough. In this clip, Tanya details how she met her ex-husband Mark, the challenge of being his girlfriend and being looked down upon by other wives when they were dating, and how she prefers not to judge or have drama with anyone. “I never had a clique in high school, why start now when I’m thirty-nine?” the centered and seemingly calm Tanya says. Get to know Tanya and the rest of the baseball wives when the show premieres November 30th at 9 p.m. ET/PT. Read more…
Brooke Villone was working as a model when she met husband, relief pitcher Ron Villone, and even though she didn’t know him, he sure knew her. In this exclusive video, we spoke to Brooke about how she first got together with Ron who, funny enough, had a poster of her in his locker before they even met. Despite being a part of a world that can entail excess, money, and drama, Brooke says her secret is to stay grounded and recognize that it can all go away at any time.

Well, it’s about time to call it a week here at the VH1 Blog. We’ll be taking off the next couple of days to stuff our faces with a harvest of fall colors, from sunset-orange hued sweet potato casserole dotted with mini marshmallows to the deep burgundy color of the gelatinous cranberry sauce I plan to scoop out of a can, but in case you want an idea for something a little more gourmet, allow Mob Wives starCarla Facciolo to assist. Carla contributed her recipe for stuffed artichokes to Hollywood Life earlier today and, well, Carla, let us know if you have an extra spot at your holiday table, I can bring the wine. Happy Thanksgiving!
