Oh lawd it’s never a dull moment with the ladies of Basketball Wives LA, is it? This week Draya (sorta) died, Jackie got “nekid” and Chantel did a pop up. We just skimmed the surface of this week’s episode for our favorite SMDH moments and mapped it out for you. It was a drama-packed-zombie-filled episode so jump on in and let us know what you thought of all the shade being thrown around. Who do you think was the biggest instigator this week?
Draya Michele’s reputation varies depending on which basketball wife is speaking about her but one thing is for sure, she’s a flatout beauty. On tonight’s episode of Basketball Wives LA Draya planned a surprise event for the other ladies which was a Zombie Mud Run. Draya let them do the running and she allowed herself to get a little ugly. We scrolled through the archives of Draya’s Instagram to find some up close and personal snapshots of her ghoulish makeup. Serving some Night of the Living Dead realness, Draya captioned one of the photos with: “Y’all chicks have 1 day…#DrayaDressDownDay #ZombieApocalypse #specialFXmakeup #thewalkingdead #anyquestions #halloween.” LOL. What do you think? Do you think Draya’s look is positively scary?
Linda Perry, star of the forthcoming Make or Break: The Linda Perry Project, married fianceé and The Talk co-host Sara Gilbert on Sunday, according to actress Juliette Lewis‘ Twitter account (and other reputable sources, of course). Lewis tweeted that Madonna‘s tune “Holiday” was playing and she was getting ready to watch one of her favorite couples in the universe get married. No word on what the brides wore but we are absolutely thrilled for the pair. Here’s to a lifetime of happiness!

Remember last week’s wild episode of Basketball Wives LA? How could y’all forget? Let us fill you in on some of the insane high (low?) points: the girls went to Palm Spring where there was lots of Miami talk from Sundy and then things escalated and Draya bit that bait. Later a teaful Jackie and Draya got real about the whole Orlando-Chantel situation. The uninvited Brittish got some good news about her boo while Brandi was talking some ish about how she and Draya are “friendly” but not friends. There were tears and punches and a black-eyed Sundy sought out revenge. Then the ladies drank and talked motherhood and Sundy’s ass was naked. Oh, but then hell no, the next morning they were all like, “Um nevermind.”
Check out the video highlights and tune in tonight for an all new Basketball Wives LA at 8 PM ET/PT.
Yesterday we reported that Benzino had been hospitalized after being shot in the Boston area on his way to his mother’s funeral. Zino can rest a bit easier today knowing that the shooter, his nephew Gai Scott, has been arrested and charged with assault with intent to murder. Benzino’s also received a couple of morale-boosting visits during his hospital stay from his girlfriend, Althea Heart, and his best pal and Love & Hip Hop Atlanta co-star Stevie J. Check out the gallery of photos of Benzino on his way to recovery.
This Is Hot 97 is a show unlike most other current reality shows out there these days. For starters, don’t call it a “reality show.” Instead, you can refer to it as the cast does, as an “unscripted comedy series.” “This is a show about the Hot 97 hallways,” DJ Cipha Sounds explains. And as for the ratchet factor? There is none. “This show is about positive vibes and family,” Ebro told fans at the This Is Hot 97 premiere party this week. “If y’all want more drama then this show ain’t for you.”
Watch the cast panel and interviews from the premiere party in the clip above to learn more about the show which has it’s official premiere this Monday at 10:30 PM ET/PT!
Love & Hip Hop Atlanta star Benzino (also known as Raymond Scott) was shot today in Boston while riding in his mother’s funeral procession. HipHopHollywood reports that Benzino’s car was shot at by another vehicle while he was on his way to the funeral service and he was taken to the Duxbury, MA police station and later to South Shore Hospital where he remains in stable condition.
The Boston Globe also reports:
“The shooting occurred after an argument between family members, but investigators are now working to determine what sparked the violence. In his statement, Cruz said that a person driving a Bentley shot the driver of a red Dodge SUV, who got out of his car and was taken to the Duxbury Police Department by a passerby, before being taken to the hospital.”
The shooter, who is thought to be a relative, was apprehended and charged with armed assault with intent to murder. We’ll keep fans updated with more news as it comes and we wish Zino the best, and a very speedy recovery.
