Season Two of Black Ink Crew has established that Ceaser and Dutchess are indeed the First Couple of Black Ink, but we’d be lying if we said their rise to the top was anything but quiet. The couple has had its fair share of critics, and with so much employee turnover in recent weeks, the question of whether or not mixing business and pleasure works has once again been raised.
When Jim Jones visited Big Morning Buzz Live With Carrie Keagan yesterday, he probably didn’t expect to get involved in a fashion war. We all know that Chrissy and Jim are stylish, but Buzz‘s Jason Dundas made things competitive when he rocked the same jacket as Jimmy. Watch the clip above and let us know who wore it better!
When we spoke to the cast of Love & Hip Hop at last week’s premiere party, Erica Jean and Saigon told us that the show made them closer than ever and they were glad that their relationship was not a “disaster waiting to happen” like some others on the show. Cough cough Tara-Amina-Peter…
Well, one part of that love triangle, Tara, is a fan of the young couple herself, and when we talked to her, she told us how excited she is to see their relationship play out, especially since they don’t have a “third party” meddling with their happiness. Check out what Tara says about Erica and Saigon, and tune in on Monday at 8PM ET/PT for more from the cast of Love & Hip Hop.
It’s time for Black Ink Crew star Ceaser to face the facts: Puma, his friend of nearly 15 years, has flown the coop and is opening up a new tattoo shop in walking distance of Black Ink. It’s tough to have to compete with so many other tattoo shops in the neighborhood, but if he’s the businessman he says he is, he’ll make it work. But first, it can’t hurt to size up his newest competition…
Erica Mena‘s birthday is today and she turns the ripe old age of 26. Of course you know her from Love & Hip Hop and her blowout fights with Kimbella, Rich Dollaz, and Tiffany, but in honor of her birthday, we dug deeper into the Mena archives to bring you some moments from her past that you may not have seen. Like, for instance, her role on Kourtney & Kim Take Miami where she palled around with Kardashians, and her many music videos, ranging from 50 Cent‘s “Candy Shop” to Fabolous‘ “Breathe” (her Love & Hip Hop associations began even before she appeared on the show — seriously, as you scroll through the clips, take note of how many VH1 connections she already had!).
Here are twelve videos featuring Erica Mena before she was “Erica Mena.” Happy birthday, girl!

This week VH1 was all about keeping it real. On Chrissy & Mr. Jones, Deb Antney gives Chrissy some tough love about getting her career back on track while on Love & Hip Hop, Nya Lee tries to discredit Rich Dollaz’s management skills.
This week’s fashion roundup features some of our biggest VH1 stars in classics like little black dresses and big, bright gowns. Some other stars, though, they opted for something different. Style, patterned cat suits, cut sweaters, and well, some leather that look sort of like a spin on Eddie Murphy’s Raw ensemble. But hey, Eddie Murphy rocked it back then! And so do all of the stars included in the latest gallery.

Last week we pointed out that Jim Jones has a pretty big tattoo of Chrissy Lampkin‘s face on his right forearm. Yesterday when the stars of Chrissy & Mr. Jones stopped by Big Morning Buzz Live With Carrie Keagan, Keagan asked what it that’s like for Chrissy. “It was very weird,” she says. “When I saw it I was like, ‘we’ll never break up now, huh? I’m stuck with him forever!’”
Nate Ryan is quite the popular one over at the Miami Monkey. Just ask Cristina and Ryan, who fight for the attention of the Barbadian-born bartender-DJ-model-music producer. His tanned and tattooed body is a sight to behold, so enjoy this gallery featuring 26 of his sexiest pics, and for one last lap with Nate, tune in to Miami Monkey when the season finale airs next Thursday night at 10PM ET/PT.
What’s this – more shouting, screaming and swearing at the Miami Monkey? You don’t say?! This week, Morgan is furious because yada yada yada, a bunch of women wear bikinis, and Cristina accuses Morgan of being an escort. Wait, say what?!
Check out the playlist above for our five most memorable moments from this week’s show, including Cristina struggling to describe “Morgan’s Miami tits.”
Hey, she said it, not us. Watch!
