We’ve spent the past few weeks preparing for the end of the year by gathering some best-of lists from all of our favorite VH1 stars. We’ll be rolling out their answers each day, and we love seeing what good taste everyone has. Today’s topic: The Best Song Of 2011. If we conclude anything from this list, it’s that everyone loves Adele, Beyonce, and Rihanna.

Why Am I Still Single?! – Episode 10 – Mike And Lucia’s Dating Adventure

This week on Why Am I Still Single?!, Siggy Flicker had two clients that proved quite a challenge: Mike, a comedian that wasn’t all that funny who couldn’t be sincere to save his life, and Lucia, the Brazilian Sofia Vergara who placed a huge emphasis on her partner’s looks and used her breasts to get attention. While they definitely overcame some of their shortcomings during their lessons with Siggy (thankfully Siggy pointed out Mike’s overuse of the word “delightful”), they were both a handful. We’re curious to know which dater’s flaws would be the bigger dealbreaker in real life: a comedian with an inability to turn his act off, or looks-obsessed and slightly insecure type? Let us know in our poll!

La La, Drita, Emily B. And More: Your Favorite VH1 Stars Grace The Divas Red Carpet

VH1 will be broadcasting Divas Celebrates Soul on Monday, December 19th at 9 p.m. ET/PT and the lineup of performers is astonishing. While our friends over at TheFabLife have tons of amazing red carpet photos of all the performers, and our other friends at Tuner have some fantastic behind the scenes gossip and rehearsal photos, of course we’re fixated on who else from the shows we watch got a little step and repeat workout. The answer? Everyone we love! Check out the entire cast of Mob Wives, La La Anthony, Emily Bustamante and more in our gallery from the show’s red carpet. Personally, we’re just as excited by these VIPs who saw the show as we are about the performers.

Tough Love Miami The Reunion: Love Conquers All


For the first time ever, a cast of Tough Love has been brought together for a reunion episode, and as reunions go, this one did not disappoint.

When we spoke to Tough Love matchmaker Steve Ward a couple weeks ago, he told us he was a little nervous to take his off-the-cuff hosting style to a more formal setting in front of an audience, but hey, he’s Steve Ward, he knows what he’s doing, audience or not, and he certainly pulled out a lot of juicy info about this cast that we’ve been dying to know. So without further hesitation, let’s see where all the women are these days. The first to be in the hot seat was Chasity and her brand new, um, dress. Which is also filled with new boobs.

“Oooh, Pull Up That Episode Of Basketball Wives!”

If you haven’t noticed, this year the internet is filled with “Sh*t People Say,” from the Twitter account Sh*t People Say, to the “Sh*t Girls Say” to “Sh*t Gay Guys Say” videos. This week, another such video came out, “Sh*t Black Girls Say” created by comedian Billy Sorrells. We weren’t sure what to expect with that one, but hilariously, it turns out most of the stuff they say is about Basketball Wives. (Some language NSFW. Mostly the title.)

Sneak A Peek At The Season Finale Of Why Am I Still Single?! Featuring The Brazilian Sofia Vergara


This coming Sunday on Why Am I Still Single?!, one of the clients that Siggy needs to work on is a busty Brazilian bombshell names Lucia. Lucia is looking for, in her words, a “blond, beautiful guy, six foot four, drop dead gorgeous, and I can care less if they have a brain or not.” Sounds superficial, sure, but it’s Lucia’s delivery that makes this obsession with looks less alarming and more adorable. She is basically a Portuguese-speaking Sofia Vergara who giggles and jiggles her way through the episode. When she meets her date, Mike, and finds out he’s a comic, her response is the best: “Oh my goodness you are comedian? Owwesome! You look so geek!” Check out our sneak peek here and then tune in to the full episode on Sunday night at 11p.m. ET/PT.

VH1 Gossip Roundup For The Week Of 12/16/11: Evelyn Lozada’s Birthday Bash And An Interview With Jackie Christie


  • Basketball WivesEvelyn Lozada celebrated her birthday in style this past weekend. Not only did she hang out with some close friends (who all received “In The Circle” t-shirts from her) but she received a Maserati as a gift from her fiance, Chad Ochocinco. Not bad at all. Check out the pic of Evelyn’s new car above. [Twitter/The Insider]
  • Love and Hip Hop‘s Emily Bustamante confirmed that her clothing line will be coming out in the fall of 2012 [BET]
  • Audrina Patridge‘s relationship with Corey Bohan was rocky when she was filming her reality show, Audrina, but she confirms to People that they are definitely together now. “Filming a reality show really takes a toll on relationships because your mindset is to create good TV. It’s hard on relationships, so after the show, Corey and I really worked on what was going on with us,” she says. [People]
  • Jackie Christie spoke to our friends at VH1Access and discussed her plans for her 17th wedding (“I want to get married at GAY PRIDE next time.”) and what her biggest regret from season one was (“I would say I probably would curse less! And would have not put on the weight and dressed that way.”) Check out the full interview here. [VH1Access]
  • Emily Bustamante made the cover of PYNK Magazine and had a little party to celebrate. Check out the pics of Emily and friends over at Concrete Loop. [Concrete Loop]

    Poll: Who Is The Most Stylish Woman Of 2011?


    One of the best parts about watching all of the shows that I do is getting to see all the amazing outfits, jewelry and shoes that the ladies of VH1 wear. So perhaps it’s an unfair question to ask since everyone’s style is different, but we want to know who you think has the best fashion sense. We’ve narrowed down the field to six ladies that we think exemplify style, so let us know who’s your favorite. (And of course, write-ins are welcome, let us know in the comments who you’d rather see on this list!)

    So who will it be, Evelyn Lozada (see more of Evelyn’s style here), La La Anthony (check out La La’s style from TRL to the present here), Jennifer Williams (see a gallery of Jen’s style here), Emily Bustamante, Stacey Dash (see more of Stacey’s style here), or Gloria Govan (who won our best dressed poll back in November)?
