In case you were wondering why, exactly, Erica and Karlie went off on Althea after she tried to apologize to them at the apology party, Erica breaks it all down in this week’s Check Yourself. “The b—h wasn’t real. The apology wasn’t sincere! She was just talking to hear herself talk.” Read more…

Now that we all know Raquel‘s secret about her legal status on Hit The Floor, it seems like trouble and awkward conversations keep finding her. On this week’s Inside The Arena, a simple question about vacation turns into a primo awkard moment when she has to fumble for an answer. Does anyone else just want Raquel to find a handsome, single immigration lawyer to sweep her off her feet and get her a green card? We don’t want any trouble for her!
Stay tuned next week for another VH1.com exclusive of Inside The Arena, right after Hit The Floor!
On this week’s Love & Hip Hop Atlanta, Mimi and Nikko‘s sex tape was released and the whole world took a peek at the professional camera angles, the shower rod acrobatics and everything else. Her friends (and enemies) were not impressed. Joseline and K.Michelle had a ball putting Mimi on blast while they watched the tape (K.Michelle’s summary: “Gross.”) while Ariane and Erica took an almost funereal approach, pitying Mimi’s daughter and feeling disgusted. (Ariane’s summary: “Wow. Oh my God.”) No matter what the reaction, the faces they all made were too amazing not to gif. Take a look at the best reaction shots of the night below.
“It’s really not about the music, it’s about the judges, it’s about the panel, it’s about the dismissal, it’s about the contest, it’s about the win,” Linda Perry says, describing every other music competition on TV today. Read more…
This week’s #WhatDoYouMeme caption contest was all about Althea and that moment Benzino pulled out the ring. Althea turned on the waterworks when he got down on one knee (and maybe seemed a bit disappointed when she realized they weren’t going to have sex in that Ferris Wheel after all), so we asked you to caption the moment for us to get inside her head. Thanks to our new meme generator, some of you who submitted captions via Facebook will see your entries come to life this week, so take a look and have a laugh!
Pink, Alicia Keys, and Celine Dion may not have much in common with each other, genre-wise, but they’ve all found success working with Linda Perry. What’s the common thread that ties all of Linda’s artistic collaborations together? She only works with artists that inspire her. Read more…
Jelena Howard has spent nearly two seasons of Hit The Floor making life hell for Ahsha Hayes. Jelena’s the one who revealed to Ahsha that Pete was her dad, she’s tried to get Ahsha kicked off the Devil Girls, and she’s tried to sabotage Ahsha’s relationship with Derek more times than we can count. And this week, Ahsha swore she’d get her revenge.
LeAnn Rimes and Eddie Cibrian were celebrities in their own right before they became a power couple splashed across the covers of gossip magazines. Lest you forget, LeAnn has been in the spotlight since she was thirteen, and Eddie and his dimples have been the objects of our girl crush since the Clinton administration.
Take a look at the LeAnn & Eddie stars back when flip phones were all the rage, big bangs were more than just a theory in LeAnn’s world, and Eddie was saving New York on Third Watch.

Linda Perry‘s new VH1 show, Make Or Break: The Linda Perry Project, captures her essence perfectly. It’s about music, talent, and passion, and what happens when an artist pushes the limits of all three.

Though we’ll be rolling out snippets of our chat with her throughout the week, the uncut, 18-minute interview is available in the VH1 App which is now available for iPhones and Androids, and can be downloaded here. Download it now for this not-to-be-missed exclusive!!

Valery Ortiz has always been one of our favorites from Hit The Floor. As Raquel, she plays the manager of the Devil’s Playground, and before she was sleuthing with (and hiding things from) Sloane, she was a Devil Girl with a heart of gold, and a penchant for cute guys with a bad streak, like Pete Davenport.
In real life, Valery is hilarious, devoted to her family, and just as stunning as Raquel. In honor of Woman Crush Wednesday, here are some of of our favorite pics of Valery along with a few fun facts about her! Read more…
