Even though season four of Basketball Wives doesn’t start for three more weeks (February 20, y’all), there’s already drama brewing. As we mentioned yesterday, Jennifer Williams and Evelyn Lozada‘s friendship will be put to the test on the show this season, and Jennifer had a theory about why Evelyn feels a certain way about her. She said in an interview “She hates the fact that I’m really good friends with NeNe [Leakes], and she hates the fact that me and Mashonda are good friends. I feel like it’s all coming from a place of hurt, and she’s turning it into anger. Why do you care who I’m friends with? Like, that’s ridiculous.” Today, the comment seems to have sparked a debate between the [former] friends on Twitter. We’ll let their Tweets tell the story, check them out below. Our favorite part of the whole thing? When referee Chad Ochocinco steps in at the end.
We’ve already shown you a clip from the upcoming VH1 Roc Docs special The TRL Decade in which Carson Daly talks about the time a teenage Lady Gaga tried to visit him in the TRL studio. In yet another teaser from the documentary, airing Sunday night, January 29 at 9:30pm ET/PT, we bring you one more great moment from behind the scenes at the show. In it, Method Man talks about the time he complimented Britney Spears on her posterior. Brit’s reaction is classic.
In the second clip, posted below, Drita responds to Ramona’s comments. “Ramona saying I’m not a part of this lifestyle is a compliment to me,” she says. “And I definitely do not want to be like her. I don’t think anyone wants to be like her. You could go to the Bronx Zoo and the f—ing monkeys would be like ‘f— no!’”
It’s easy to forget that TRL was more than a show where tweens would make their parents drag them to Times Square on a pilgrimage to run their vocals ragged, screaming for their favorite stars. TRL was a defining show for MTV, popular music and kids of a certain generation. It’s also easy to forget the caliber of celebrities that appeared on the show, which ran from 1998-2008. Madonna, Tom Cruise, Jennifer Lopez, Britney Spears, hell, even Angelina Jolie, they all appeared on the show often. In honor of the new VH1 Rock Doc The TRL Decade, which airs January 29, we’d like to take a look back at the VJ’s who made the show what it was, and the celebrities that came down to 1515 Broadway to hang with them. (We invite you to take a closer look at the photo on the upper left in our gallery — yes, that is indeed Destiny’s Child, Eve, 3LW, and Dream hanging with Carson Daly.) And of course, check out the documentary when it airs on Sunday January 29 at 9:30 pm ET/PT.
We haven’t heard much from Terrell Owens since his show ended this past summer, although there have been a few reports of health scares and legal woes that have cropped up here and there. T.O. spoke to GQ recently to clear up all the rumors and reports we’ve heard, in addition to answering questions about football. Check out the clip above to hear T.O.’s thoughts on who he thinks are some of the best players in the game, and keep reading after the jump for more personal details from the interview, including concerns about his mental health, and his recently soured relationship with his publicists Mo and Kita.
Somaya Reece was absent for much of season two of Love And Hip Hop and fans definitely took notice. Team Somaya was up in arms when they noticed that she disappeared for three episodes in the middle of the season, only to return to episodes nine and ten for brief cameos. I spoke to Somaya by phone while she was out in L.A. visiting — she told me that though she has a house out there, New York is home now — and we talked about her absence from the show. We also discussed how intense all the fighting this season seemed to get (“the show went from Love And Hip Hop to Bad Girls Club” she says), the current status of her relationship with Midi Mafia producer Swift, and what she really thinks of Erica Mena (“ultimate trashiness”). Real talk with Somaya Reece starts now.
We forget sometimes that celebrities are people too, and sometimes their guilty pleasures are the same as ours. Consider Pan Am star Christina Ricci, who appeared on The Talk the other day and described her passion for reality shows, including our very own Mob Wives and Baseball Wives. In the clip above, Ricci says “Every kind of ‘Housewife’ I can watch…If there’s no ‘Housewife’ on Bravo, I will find the Mob Wives on VH1, or we’ll switch over to the Baseball Wives that comes on after.” We knew we liked this girl for a reason! But it doesn’t stop there. In an interview with VH1′s very own music site, Tuner, the controversial SNL chanteuse Lana Del Rey also discussed her love of Mob Wives, saying “I f*cking love Mob Wives. I like Drita. BAD B*TCH. Wouldn’t mess with her, but she’s beautiful. I heard that one of those girls is Ghostface Killah‘s stylist, and that’s where he gets his minks and jewels from. Is that true?”
And finally, we just learned that Hannibal Lecter himself, Sir Anthony Hopkins, enjoys nothing more than a solitary evening at home with his Staten Island ladies. He recently told The Guardian that his idea of the perfect night would be “Staying in and watching Mob Wives on TV. I don’t have many friends; I’m very much a loner. As a child I was very isolated and I’ve never been really close to anyone. Ask nothing, expect nothing. That’s my creed. We’re all just a bunch of sinners crashing around in the darkness.” A little dark, perhaps, but if Mob Wives helps him through the night, what else can we ask?

The second season of Mob Wives is only a few episodes in and we can already conclude a few things: ratings are through the roof, fans are obsessed with the cast (both old and new), and you all want more, more, more of these women. And who are we to deny you? VH1 is super-excited to announce the premiere of the Mob Wives after show, which will debut on Sunday night immediately following the show. Called Mob Wives: The Sit Down, the show will be hosted by Carrie Keagan and will feature 2-3 of the women each week. If you don’t already have VH1′s Co-Star app, now would be the time to download that too, since the ladies will be answering fan’s Twitter questions submitted through the app each week.
So set your DVRs, cancel your evening plans, do whatever you’ve got to do to make sure you see this show.
