The Cast Of Basketball Wives L.A. On The Booty-Shakin’ Music That Gets Them Pumped

We’re only one episode in to the new season of Basketball Wives L.A., which means we haven’t gotten to know the women of the show all that well yet. We’ll definitely be seeing more drama out of them, but when we got the chance to ask them a few questions recently, we wanted to know what makes them tick in other ways, so we talked music and movie casting with these lovely ladies.

It’s safe to say that the iPod playlists of these women run the full spectrum — from “booty-shakin’ strip club” music to Al Green to Papa Roach, they love it all. And when we asked who would play them in the movie version of their lives, the answers ranged from a “a hybrid Beyonce-Berry-Bassett” to “skinny Raven-Symone.” Watch the video above to see who said what, and tune into Basketball Wives L.A. on Mondays at 8 p.m. to get to know the ladies even better.

Poll: Who’s The Biggest Troublemaker On Basketball Wives L.A.?


You watched the series premiere of Basketball Wives L.A. We know you did, it was trending all night on Twitter, you’ve been commenting on our recap, and everyone has an opinion. So far, it’s hard to compare this cast to the Miami cast (although if we had to, we’d say Gloria is the L.A. version of…Gloria), but we want to know who you think the person starting the most drama is this season. Seems like the front-runners might be wise sage Tanya, Queens-loving Kimsha, and “groupie-jumpoff” Draya, but then again, that fight between Malaysia and Laura wasn’t pretty…

La La Vasquez Talks About Beyonce’s Big VMA Reveal, Her Acting Career, And Freaks Out About Her Times Square Billboard


I’ve never been in the presence of person who has screamed so loudly that I thought someone might call the police, but that’s exactly what happened when La La Vasquez walked into our interview here at the VH1 offices and spotted a billboard for her show out the window, smack in the middle of Times Square. The woman lost her mind for about thirty seconds (in an adorable way, not one that actually required the police). La La had no idea her face would be on a giant billboard, and she probably had no idea that three million viewers would tune in to the premiere of her show, La La’s Full Court Life last week, so she has a lot of reasons to be so excited. And, thanks to the MTV VMA’s, she has one more reason, thanks to Beyonce.

Did you watch the VMAs last night?

Absolutely.

Any favorite moments? Beyonce?

Yeah, that was the biggest moment, Beyonce announcing she’s pregnant, it was like hearing your sister say she was pregnant. Everyone was so happy about that, as am I, I am overwhelmed with happiness for them. I think Chris Brown‘s performance was amazing, the flying through the air was just crazy, the Amy Winehouse tribute was wonderful — I thought the show from start to finish was just so well done.

Kelly Rowland, Christina Milian Attend Give Back Hollywood’s VH1 Save The Music Event [Photos]

The MTV Video Music Awards (and Beyonce‘s baby bump) might have been the big news of the weekend, but there was another musical event in Los Angeles this weekend that saw dozens of celebs come out in support of their industry: The Save The Music Foundation Benefit, sponsored by the Give Back Hollywood Foundation.

The event, held Friday at the SLS Hotel in L.A. was co-hosted by Tamar Braxton (hostess.org?) and Vanessa Simmons, and featured a performance from Luke James and appearances from Christina Milian, Kelly Rowland, and Carolina Liar. Check out our gallery below to see who was in attendance (our favorite pic might just be the one of Andrew W.K. and Cherie Lily. That guy might like to party, but he also knows how to crane kick on the red carpet.).
