Behind-The-Scenes Single Ladies Text: Keisha Lends Her Support To April

Behind every great man, there’s a greater, smarter, more organized woman. At least, that’s the message Keisha‘s trying to give April in this text. As April gears up for Reed‘s big music showcase on Single Ladies, Keisha gently reminds her that if it wasn’t for April, there would be no showcase at all. Too bad Reed doesn’t appreciate that.

Single Ladies airs Monday nights at 9 p.m. ET/PT, and for more bonus features, be sure to check out the Twitter pages of Val (@Val_VH1), Keisha (@Keisha_VH1) and Omar (@Omar_VH1).

Evelyn Lozada Goes To The Law And Order Special Victims Unit

What’s Basketball Wives star Evelyn Lozada doing in her down time now that season three has wrapped? Oh, just getting locked up, interrogated, and toe-tagged.

Evelyn posted these photos to her Facebook page as she visited the set of Law And Order: SVU today. She hilariously captioned the photo in the interrogation room “Me getting interrogated at the disappearance of Ochocinco.” The photos are nice and all, but she never mentions what’s truly important: whether or not she met Benson and Stabler.

Behind-The-Scenes Single Ladies Text: The Last Supper

Val went to all the trouble of cooking her boyfriend Jerry a gourmet, farm-fresh meal on Single Ladies last night, and how does he thank her? By telling her he’s not ever planning to propose to her. In this text message between the couple, poor Val seems so excited to make plans with her man, and at the same time, she’s completely unaware of the bomb he’s gonna drop. At least the meal sounds delicious, right?

Single Ladies airs Monday nights at 9 p.m. ET/PT, and for more bonus features, be sure to check out the Twitter pages of Val (@Val_VH1), Keisha (@Keisha_VH1) and Omar (@Omar_VH1).

Royce Reed Recaps Basketball Wives Episode 9

The VH1 Blog is lucky enough to welcome back Royce Reed to her weekly recapping gig where she’ll give us her perspective on all things Basketball Wives 3. Check in each week to hear Royce’s take on the drama that goes down. This week: running…like a waterfall.

OK HERE WE GO! AGAIN THIS IS MY BLOG AND I SAY WHAT I WANT WHEN I WANT AND HOW I WANT. IF YOU DON’T LIKE IT DON’T READ IT.

Ok lets go backwards for a second…DID Y’ALL SEE THAT DRINK TOSS? OMG! I swear I forgot Eric was a dude for a minute and was wondering where Evelyn came from…Okay, I digress!

I missed Tami. I believe our “friendship,” yes “friendship,” has really built into a strong bond. I don’t call everyone my friend and I definitely don’t have many female “friends.” Although it’s not shown, Tami and I do have our disagreements, BUT we handle them differently with each other. When Tami told me what went down in Rome, I was shocked. I was even more shocked when I saw the actual footage. At this point, I’m pretty sure we won’t be seeing anymore of Meeka for a while, since at the moment these scenes were shot, she was at the courthouse filing papers. I think I was more happy about Tami landing the Mush than the reason behind it… #admittingmyfaultsandconfessingmysins.

Check Out The Supertrailer For VH1′s Newest Competition, Ton Of Cash


VH1′s upcoming game show Ton Of Cash sounded like a piece of cake when we first heard the premise: Contestants need to transport an actual ton of cash ($1 million to be exact) three hundred miles form L.A to Las Vegas. But after watching the supertrailer and watching the fourteen contestants lugging the money around — on foot, through rain, snow, sand, and beyond — we have to say, it looks a lot harder than we thought.

And then of course, there’s the competition aspect, and these folks aren’t playing nice. “If you’re not breaking some rules, you’re not playing the game,” says one contestant. And it looks like we have a lot of rule-breakers over here. Ton of Cash is hosted by NFL star Dhani Jones and the series premieres Wednesday, August 17 at 9 p.m. ET/PT.

Jennifer Williams Talks Basketball Wives Lingo With Us


“‘The Circle’ took on a life of it’s own…That whole term is really strange to me…I prefer to call it a group,” Basketball Wives star Jennifer Williams explained when I asked her to define the term that’s been thrown around so often on the show this season.

I also had Jennifer to clarify all the BBW lingo the ladies use these days, from “boo” to “keep it movin’” to “pit bull,” and she did her best to explain what she thinks of their catchphrases and how they relates to the drama on the show. Check out my interview with her above, and please don’t laugh at how short I am compared to her, the woman is gorgeous and at least six feet tall without heels (but of course, she wore 5-inchers anyway) and I totally shouldn’t have worn flip flops when I was filming with her.

The Basketball Wives season finale will air next Monday, August 8, at 8 p.m. and because there’s so much ground to cover this season, there will be a two-part reunion, with the first hour airing on August 15 at 8 p.m. and part two airing August 22 at 8 p.m.
