We love gearing up for each new season of Tough Love and getting to know a new cast of women who will (hopefully) improve their lives by improving their dating habits. Thanks to Steve and JoAnn Ward, this new crop of women will get all the tough love they need, and this season the show is set in New Orleans, so you know things are going to get spiced up bit this time around. So who are these new ladies in desperate need of the Wards’ help? Check out our gallery and try to predict who’s the man eater, who’s the virgin, and of course, who loves a bad boy. Clear your calendars and set your DVRs, Tough Love: New Orleans premieres April 15 at 9 p.m.
When Tami Roman participated in our Face to Face chat last night, we could tell she was a bit under the weather, but we just received some scary news about her health. Roman’s publicist just sent us an urgent but relieving press release from tonight, informing us that Roman was admitted and released from the hospital for a “mild medical condition.” Roman confirmed via Twitter that she had a mild heart attack last night. The release reads:
VH1 Basketball Wives star Tami Roman Recovering After a Mild Medical Condition
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
NYC, New York- Last night, Tami Roman was admitted to Cedars-Sinai Medical Center for a medical emergency.
She has since been released and would like to let her fans and supporters know she is doing fine and looks forward to resuming her scheduled engagements. She will also be back on Twitter communicating with her followers shortly.
Roman tweeted this evening “Thx 2every1 for the get well wishes. Never thought I’d have a mild heart attack at 41. God has a way of bringing things into perspective. Finally going home 2my kids-heart meds and all.” We are truly thankful that her condition is not worse and that she’s well enough to leave the hospital. We’re thinking of you, Tami!
William Levy has become a household name thanks to his stint on this season of Dancing With The Stars over the past few weeks. The super-hot actor will also be appearing on the upcoming season of Single Ladies, so of course, with more fame comes more exposure or, more accurately, over-exposure. A series of almost-nude photos of Levy has surfaced recently (you can see all the pics here, the photo above literally isn’t the half of it), and after the general public caught their breath, everyone wanted to know if Levy was embarrassed by them (why he’d be embarrassed, we don’t know). Levy told Entertainment Tonight “[The photos] have been out already all over the world. I was a model when I did these things, so as a model there’s nothing wrong [with] doing those kind[s] of things. You gotta work. You gotta make money.” Exactly! Also, it’s art, the human form is a thing of beauty, and who doesn’t love men’s mesh bikini bottoms?
We’ll consider this a taste of things to come when he shows up on Single Ladies this May…
Evelyn Lozada landed the cover of Kontrol Magazine’s “Decades” issue and the Basketball Wives star is proving once again that she definitely knows how to work it. In the video above, Evelyn primps before her shoot, and after the jump, we have the cover shot where she sparkles in pink sequins. What, you thought she’d wear something subtle?
Both Evelyn Lozada and Jennifer Williams will be maintaining their own blogs this season in order to give their own sides of the story presented onscreen on Basketball Wives. We’ve been checking in with these blogs each week, as well as posting Royce Reed‘s recaps which are exclusive to the VH1 Blog to give you guys the most comprehensive coverage we can. This week, the ladies both present their side of the Shaunie’s birthday party story. Sounds like Jennifer wants to move on, but Evelyn is hinting that there’s much more to the story than meets the eye.
Once again, I have never been a fighter and I refuse to start at this age especially on TV.I don’t consider myself a role model but I do know there are young women that watch Basketball Wives. Fighting on TV sends the wrong message to our youth. It is not ok to put your hands on someone and think it is acceptable. Read more…
Kesha Nichols is a self-proclaimed low-key country girl who doesn’t take herself too seriously, which is why she seems to have earned herself a huge fan base this season on Basketball Wives. The petite North Carolina native also surprised us when she showed up to our office last week in an outfit that was super stylish, but totally affordable, too. She told us that she was a former shoe model with perfect size six feet, so the cream-colored Steve Madden platform heels she was wearing were a little shout out to that old employer, and her dress and jewelry were from Urban Outfitters and Aldo, respectively. Take a look at Kesha’s Style Seen shoot below for close-ups of her whole look. And for more coverage, check out our exclusive interview with Kesha here.
June Ambrose does two things incredibly well: she has a sixth sense for knowing fashion, and she can give a seriously good quote. So each week during Styled By June, we’ll be pulling her quotes the way she pulls clothes from the rack and we’ll be showcasing her best one-liners right here. This Kool-Aid line might take the cake this week though, but here are a few more we loved. Read more…
And you thought the battle between Kesha and Tami was something. Looks like Kenya vs. Evelyn is going to be a battle to the death. Or a battle to the destruction of a cute little Miami vinoteca. All I know is that Kenya needs to find a story and stick to it. Read more…
