The Supertrailer: This Season On Love & Hip Hop


There are no words to describe the supertrailer for Love And Hip Hop 2. If we could attempt to describe it, we’d call it explosive, shocking, thrilling, and emotional, but those can’t do it justice. This upcoming season promises drama like we’ve never seen from these ladies before. We’ll finally get some closure from Emily and Fab’s, we see where Chrissy and Jim stand, and what’s up with the careers of Somaya and Olivia. But it would appear that the new girls, Kimbella and Yandy, have brought a whole supply of drama with them for this season. It’s just…like we said, there are no words.

Watch for yourself and tune in to the premiere on November 14 at 9 p.m. ET/PT. Read more…

Get To Know The Cast Of Why Am I Still Single?!: Victor Holds His Own As The Only Man Of The Bunch




On Why Am I Still Single?!, love coach Siggy Flicker works with a team of “love pickers” and stylists to give people who are unlucky in love a dating makeover. The job of a love picker is to scout new dates for Siggy’s clients, which means you need to be personable, outgoing, and show no fear in approaching just about anyone on the street. Victor Goldman is all of the above. As the only man on the show, and a single father to boot, Victor offers a unique perspective, but he’s also one charismatic guy, which made talking to him as easy as if I was talking to an old friend. Let’s meet Victor, shall we?

It’s got to be crazy being the only guy on the show.

Oh, it’s nuts being the only guy.

Do you ever feel like you need to add more to give the guy’s perspective since it’s one guy to five women?

Definitely. I’m working with five very bright, intuitive women, and that’s great, but they’re not men, they don’t have the guy’s angle and that’s what I like to lend. Sometimes that means putting my feet right into the fire but that’s okay.

Get To Know The Cast Of Why Am I Still Single?! A Chat With Hayley The Love Picker


VH1′s new dating show Why Am I Still Single?! stars matchmaker and love coach Siggy Flicker and her team of “love-pickers” and stylists who pledge to work on their dating clients on the inside and out to show them how to be better daters (and get a makeover at the same time). Hayley Raphael works as a dating recruiter who has her eye on just about everyone in New York City and is constantly on the hunt for people who might make great matches for Siggy’s lovelorn clients. I chatted with Hayley recently to get some of her back story. Like everyone else on the show, she’s full of energy and life and LOVES her job. (I’ve seriously never met a group of people who love their jobs as much as Siggy and her team.) Here we go.

Do you recruit daters full time?

I don’t do it full time, I got my start in theater. I played children’s roles until basically my boobs grew in last year. [Laughs] I’m not kidding you. I’m a writer too, I’ve written screenplays, short films, I have a degree in theater, so my background is in that.

How did you meet Siggy?
