On the season finale of Basketball Wives, we caught up with former cast member Kenya Bell and got a little taste of what she’s been up to since leaving the circle. We saw that she’s been working with producer Jazze Pha (to debatable results among the other ladies), but the rest our update was interrupted by Suzie’s lip, which fell victim to Kenya’s hands during an altercation over the single “Hate Me.” Thankfully, Instagram is here to help fans piece together what post-Basketball Wives life has been for Kenya.
Based on the evidence, she’s been taking lots of trips with her boo thang, going blond, brunching it up, and bouncing around with her son…and SpongeBob. In between that, Kenya’s been doing photo shoots — some of which pay tribute to Raquel Welch. She must be awfully busy because she’s been caught falling asleep at the wheel (always pull over, folks). Let’s take a look at Kenya’s 2013, and remember, it took 2 Chainz many years and a name change before he started to pop. Keep hope and your backing track alive, Kenya!

CrazySexyCool: The TLC Storyhad its grand television premiere last night on VH1, and we haven’t stopped humming “Red Light Special” since!

The actors in CrazySexyCool: The TLC Story were made to resemble the real-life people they were playing so well that we were completely sucked in to the film.
