There are a lot of new faces on season four of Love & Hip Hop, and most of them started out as fans of the show before they were added to the cast. So how excited are they to be a part of this series? We asked them at Monday night’s premiere party. Read more…
There’s lots of color and length in terms of both style of dress and weave in this week’s fashion round up. There are ultra tight dresses, high heels, and lots of sex appeal from the women who make up much of VH1′s programming bloc, including several looks from Monday night’s Love & Hip Hop premiere party. That’s also where we saw the ever-stylish Joe Budden, who solely reps for the fellas this week. We appreciate the effort, Joe, particularly with the colorful socks. One more thing: A few of these looks may look like they were inspired by Halloween, but that’s not a costume, just a custom made dress. No shade. Again, we’re all about effort and individuality ’round these parts.

Temporarily setting the shop conflicts aside, Monday night’s episode of Black Ink Crew takes a moment to reflect on the past. After a customer with AIDS requests a tattoo of the AIDS ribbon, the typically guarded Ceaser shares his own connection to the disease.
From the season premieres of Love & Hip Hop and Chrissy and Mr. Jones to Puma’s major announcement on Black Ink Crew, VH1 itself was having the best week ever. On the season premiere of Love & Hip Hop, Amina Buddafly reveals that she is not Peter Gunz’s side-chick…she is his wife! Meanwhile, on the season premiere of Chrissy & Mr. Jones, Jim and Chrissy become full time parents when Jim’s son, Pudie, decides to live with them for the entire summer.
Now that Puma is opening his own tattoo shop just steps away from Black Ink, how will this affect Ceaser‘s business? “We ain’t hurtin’,” the Black Ink Crew star said during this week’s edition of Very VH1. “There’s a million competitors in Harlem, and I’m competing against all of them.”
This year, we were impressed by some of the Halloween costumes that popped up in our Instagram feed, it’s clear that some VH1 stars take this holiday very seriously. Now that it’s the day after and the festivities are over, let’s take a look as some of the best costumes out there belonging to your favorite stars and their adorable children. There were a lot of spooky looks this year (Draya Michele‘s professional zombie makeup takes the cake, but Sassy from Black Ink Crew might be the world’s scariest clown), a lot of sexy Playboy bunnies (Somaya Reece, Jennifer Williams and Joseline all donned the ears and tails), and some just plain hilarious outfits (O’S**t‘s homage to Dave Chappelle‘s homage to Prince is pretty amazing). Scroll through, you don’t want to miss these.
Love & Hip Hop‘s Tahiry Jose has an amazing sense of style coupled with an incredibly busy lifestyle, so she has to keep all her daily essentials on-hand at all times. When she dropped by the VH1 offices this week, we asked for a glimpse inside her purse to see what must-have items stay with her at all times, and it turns out, Tahiry’s a practical woman (with a lot of cool accessories).
This week, the Miami Monkeyteam partakes in their two favorite pastimes: wining and whining! Salud! Let’s toast to these top moments, shall we?
1. Clink clink, sip sip, glug glug! Repeat!Ang goes wine tasting to test out her competition, and test she does!
Peter Gunz was a no-show to the Love & Hip Hop premiere party on Monday night, and for good reason; who would want to face the press and fans immediately after the dirtiest of dirty laundry was revealed on air to millions of people? But Gunz isn’t totally press-shy. He appeared on Sway In The Morning yesterday to answer all the big questions including Sway’s first one: “My dude, what the hell were you thinking??” Read more…
“I hate to talk bad about Peter but it’s really like, his mess. He would tell you the same if he were here…he lied to me as well as to her,” Amina Buddafly told us at the Love & Hip Hop premiere party on Monday when we asked if she felt like she and Tara both got played by the man they love. “Absolutely he played me and he played her, no doubt about it.” Read more…
