Last night on Basketball Wives LA the drama was in high gear with Draya and her man, Orlando pulling pop-ups on Jackie and Chantel. Malaysia called Jackie out on what exactly she’s up to with Draya and it looks like all this ish is about to get tré international. Jackie was invited to go to the Cognac region of France to visit her brandy facilities and she’s invited all the girls (except Draya, yet). The name-calling and shade wasn’t just on-screen though, the ladies were on Twitter where there were teases of not going to France, teases of not filming more episodes and lots of Sundy and Brandi beef. Check out our round up of the best tweets from the “wives” (and Chani) and let us know what you think: is Brittish not going to France? Is Draya done filming? What’s up with Sundy and Brandi?

Jackie Christie’s Recap Of This Week’s Basketball Wives LA: “Invisible Smashed Homies”

by (@lizburrito)

During this season of Basketball Wives LA, the VH1 Blog is happy to have Jackie Christie guest blogging her thoughts to every episode of the show. This week, Jackie discusses her excitement about heading to Paris, and the “invisa-homie” that Draya and Orlando keep referring to in the Chantel situation. Regardless of whose side you’re on here, let’s all start using “invisa-homie” regularly because it’s the best term ever.

ThumbJackieWhere do I even begin?

Let’s just say I was so glad the whole Draya and Chani meeting was over, and although I felt it could have gone much better. At least Chani was able to get everything off her chest regarding the lies that were circulating around about her from Draya, that included whether Orlando was calling and trying to date or not?!? It was chaos and then some and had gotten so heated, name-calling ensued and I needed to step in to calm things down as best I could. Well, just before Chani called her one more “B” and decided to walk out on the whole thing. But I knew she was pleased that Draya confirmed yet again that she was aware Orlando was calling/texting Chani, that whole debacle was crazy and it even included an invisible smashed “homie”!?! Yeah, I know right? Read more…

Tiny And Shekinah: Great Friends, Terrible Business Partners

by (@lizburrito)

If Tiny and Shekinah‘s friendship was on the periodic table, it would be located with the most volatile of elements, because their friendship is ready to vaporize at any moment. At least they’re aware of this though, and in their efforts to go into business together and hopefully clash a little less, they decide to go on a business retreat run by Laura Dern’s character on Enlightened to work out their differences.

“Welcome to Business Partnering From The Heart,” fake Laura Dern says, in tonight’s Family Hustle highlight of the night. “Aww, that’s cute,” Shekinah replies.

And that’s where the pleasantries end. From here on out, it’s nothing but bickering between Tiny and Shekinah and, personally, if we paid good money to attend this retreat and we got stuck with them in our group, we might ask for a refund.

Watch A Possessed Jackie Christie Pull Her Weave Out, Thanks To The Oculus Mirror

by (@lizburrito)

Last week, Jackie Christie appeared possessed by the Oculus mirror and we wondered what evil deed it might make her do. Would she assault herself with a drink, as certain Basketball Wives have done in the past, or would she try to pull her weave off her own head? You voted using the hashtags #DrinkInTheFace and #SnatchThatWeave, and now you can see what a possessed Jackie Christie is likely to do. Watch the clip above to see Jackie snatch that poor weave right out of her own head. Slowly. Painfully. And oh-so-evilly.


Oculus is in theaters April 11. For more, check out

A Closer Look At Black Ink Crew Star Quani’s Style


View Photo Gallery

Black Ink Crew‘s Quani has a cute lil’ style that deserves highlighting — no wonder Puma loves her so. So, here come the highlighting, y’all. Personally, I’m here for the 1990s realness that is Quani rocking some jeans that have her name spray painted on them in green. Like, that makes me want to sing TLC and do that dance with the fingers. You know the one I’m talking about, right? No, shut up.

In any event, here’s Quani’s style. It’s eclectic, cute, and colorful. Hand clap for her.
