by (@KMeena720)


VH1′s primetime line-up showcased the opposing sides of a person this week. On Single Ladies, April and Raquel saw a softer and more vulnerable side of Felicia when she had an emotional breakdown after speaking to her ex-husband on the phone. In a similar fashion, on Basketball Wives LA the claws came out at Jackie’s GLAAD event when Brittish and Malaysia began arguing over how Malaysia greeted Brittish. Check out highlights from this past week on VH1.

In Praise Of Nicole Murphy


View Photo Gallery

Hollywood Exes star Nicole Murphy looks like one of God’s handcrafted angels. The 46-year-old mother of five (!!) is stubbornly striking and gorgeous to the point that if you don’t think she’s one of the most beautiful women in public life, you ought to send your eye sockets to Stevie Wonder because you’re wasting your gift of sight. In honor of the headliner of the reality franchise and in anticipation of its upcoming season, here is a gallery celebrating Nicole Murphy pretty.

Yes, check out Nicole looking pretty in bikinis; looking pretty while modeling; looking pretty with her celebrity friends; looking pretty while working out; looking pretty while just standing around to look pretty. The key word here is pretty. Oh yeah: praise, too. All hail Nicole Murphy.

Be sure to check out the new season of Hollywood Exes, premiering on April 30.

Basketball Wives LA Episode 5 Sneak Peek: What’s Your Beef With Draya?

by (@damianbellino)

The ladies are trying to get past the drama from the Draya-Orlando-Chantel reveal and the messiness of Jackie’s GLAAD event and decide to organize a trip to Palm Springs. Sitting poolside, Sundy, Jackie and Brandi (yo, they’re all drunk right?) discuss how Jackie can best rectify things with Draya to make sure they have a great vacation. Brandi says that maybe the setting wasn’t ideal to tell your friend what’s up with her man but Jackie and Sundy shrug it off.

“There ain’t no wrong environment. F**k that,” Jackie barks.

Sundy slurs that “Er’rybody knows anyway. So I don’t get the point whether she told her by herself or whether she told her…”

“Exactly, I wouldn’t care if me and Draya when to Magic mother**king Mountain (for reference) and got on a ride and I told her,” says Jackie

“Er’rybody know. You know, I know, Malaysia knows, [censored] er’rybody knows…”

Oh boy! That last part is like all spoken over one another at the same time. Brandi looks like she doesn’t know what to say next. So what do you think? Do you think Draya and the rest of the girls are going to show to plan the Palm Springs trip or is just going to be Brandi and these two? Watch episode five of Basketball Wives LA on Monday night at 8PM ET/PT to find out.

Sundy Carter’s A Drama Queen: A Look Back At The Basketball Wives LA Star’s Acting Career

by (@damianbellino)

State Property 2 New York City Premiere - After Party

Sundy Carter may be new to the cast of Basketball Wives LA but that hasn’t stopped the outspoken gal from causing (just a bit of) drama with the other ladies. In case you didn’t know, Sundy had quite the acting resume coming onto the reality show. Her credits include everything from Soul Plane to Hot Property 1 & 2 to Bringing Down the House. Do you think Sundy was channeling her inner theatre diva when she was feuding with costar Brandi for googling her? Do you think she’s honing her craft when she claims she saw Draya “crawling on all fours, begging for tips” as a stripper? Check out the reality star’s acting chops in the trailer for Ex$pendable below and let us know what you think!

The women of Basketball Wives LA are known for looking flawless from the hair right down to their shoes but in honor of Throwback Thursday we dug up some before-they-were-reality-stars snapshots of all of the ladies (and even some other friends of the show). This is back when they were still wearing glasses and braces! Browse our gallery to see a young Malaysia grilling the photog and a baby Draya cheesing for the camera. You won’t believe some of the transformations (Brandi!!!) and how some of these ladies don’t seem to age at all (amirite, Sundy?!) We are just living for these relics!
