You Won’t Believe What Domani & King Make On The Next T.I. & Tiny: The Family Hustle

by (@damianbellino)

Blastoff! With a knife, a bowl of cereal, their own hands and a little supervision from dad T.I., Domani and King try making a model rocket on the next episode of T.I. & Tiny: The Family Hustle. The boys call their pops outside to watch it takeoff but then…bust.

“You guys were not working together…Next time you bring me out here have a real rocket to show,” says T.I.

Laughing to Tiny, Tip says he applauds their effort but that the rocket’s not working for the boys because there was no teamwork involved. King was just eating Fruity Pebbles while Domani did all the work. Mom and dad decide their going to take the kids to space camp to learn to work together and also so they can wear some cute futuristic spacesuits!

Check out an all new T.I. & Tiny: The Family Hustle Monday at 9PM ET/PT on VH1.

Life After The Show: What Has Jennifer Williams Been Doing Since Basketball Wives?

For some reality stars, life goes from cloud nine to the boiler room of the seventh circle of hell after they leave their respective shows. Such has not happened to former Basketball Wives star Jennifer Williams, though. She may no longer be besties with Evelyn Lozada or having random fights with relative strangers at restaurants for our amusement anymore, but Jen is doing quite alright for herself.

An entrepreneur before she started her TV career, Jen continues to do Flirty Girl fitness as well as her Lucid Cosmetics line. She also revealed via Instagram that she’ll be releasing a maxi dress line through Walmart. And of course, you saw Jen on Bravo’s I Dream of NeNe was one of NeNe Leakes’ bridesmaids — or, uh, “bridemaid,” as NeNe likes to call them.

That said, take a look at Jen’s post-reality show life via pictures. She’s out here hanging out with Olivia Pope’s daddy and other famous folks, plus serving eternal bae realness on the beach and at a nice event near you. Shout out to her publicist. Get it, Jen!

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)

Jackie
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…
