On the season finale of Basketball Wives, we caught up with former cast member Kenya Bell and got a little taste of what she’s been up to since leaving the circle. We saw that she’s been working with producer Jazze Pha (to debatable results among the other ladies), but the rest our update was interrupted by Suzie’s lip, which fell victim to Kenya’s hands during an altercation over the single “Hate Me.” Thankfully, Instagram is here to help fans piece together what post-Basketball Wives life has been for Kenya.
Based on the evidence, she’s been taking lots of trips with her boo thang, going blond, brunching it up, and bouncing around with her son…and SpongeBob. In between that, Kenya’s been doing photo shoots — some of which pay tribute to Raquel Welch. She must be awfully busy because she’s been caught falling asleep at the wheel (always pull over, folks). Let’s take a look at Kenya’s 2013, and remember, it took 2 Chainz many years and a name change before he started to pop. Keep hope and your backing track alive, Kenya!

Last week, at the premiere of CrazySexyCool: The TLC Story, the stars not only walked the red carpet but they also snapped some selfies with the VH1 Twitter Mirror. The Mirror has been making the rounds all year, first popping up at the Oscars and then later at Lollapalooza. And the stars loved it! Everyone from Evan Ross, who plays Dallas Austin, to Missy Elliott had fun smiling for the camera.
CrazySexyCool: The TLC Story airs Monday, October 21 at 9 p.m. ET/PT.
Love and Hip Hop‘s Tahiry Jose may be known as one of the sexiest women on reality TV, but she’s not resting on her famous posterior, she works hard to stay hot. The health-conscious model and aspiring rapper realizes that the big butt celebrated today can easily turn into the wide load that little kids laugh at the grocery store tomorrow. To that end, Tahiry works super duper hard to keep it good and tight. Those of us who follow her on Instagram have watched her chronicle her fitness journey, week after week and salad after salad.
In this gallery, we take a look at some of Tahiry’s best looks at the gym and pass on her tips. Some of the more important ones to embrace:
1. Always remember that squats may feel like your frenemy, but they love your body more than you’ll ever know.
2. Find yourself a workout buddy and/or trainer who can keep you motivated. Or, at the very least, acts as eye candy.
3. Also, do plenty of death lifts, use as many free weights as possible, and never fear of going outside to really make yourself sweat.
And most of all, know that if you didn’t take a selfie at the gym, it didn’t really happen.
In a new promo for CrazySexyCool: The TLC Story, fans get a look at the darker side of TLC‘s career. From the time Lisa “Left Eye” Lopes burned down her then-boyfriend’s house to Tionne “T-Boz” Watkins’ ongoing battle with sickle-cell anemia, no stone is left unturned. When you factor in the group’s bankruptcy and Rozonda “Chilli” Thomas’ relationship drama, you definitely summed up the ‘crazy’ aspect of the group’s career in 30 seconds.
With her incredible poise and experience in show business, Hit The Floor star Kimberly Elise is exactly the person we want to go to for advice on life, love, and careers (among other things). We’re not the only ones who are fans of Elise, as the woman we know as Sloane Hayes was featured at The Hollywood Confidential “Images of African American Women in Mainstream Media” discussion at the Museum of Tolerance in Los Angeles on Tuesday.
Sunday’s final two episodes of La La’s Full Court Life Season Four saw La La Anthony leave the nest and embark on a major career move without the immediate support of her inner circle, and our girl Po Johnson follow her dreams in more ways than one.
Every good man needs a good woman, and this strong, burly Staten Island resident has that tenfold.
Ambition is attractive, and any man in close proximity to Diddy is someone we want to get to know. (The fact that he has a side hustle with Ciroc is an added bonus.)
The next gentleman on our list of magnificent men can be described in one word: ballin’. Read more…
While most of the 2013 Bikini Awards have been taking place over on VH1 Celebrity, we couldn’t very well hold this competition without including our own family of sizzling stars, could we?
