What’s The T: Catch Up On Last Week’s Basketball Wives LA

by (@damianbellino)

Remember last week’s wild episode of Basketball Wives LA? How could y’all forget? Let us fill you in on some of the insane high (low?) points: the girls went to Palm Spring where there was lots of Miami talk from Sundy and then things escalated and Draya bit that bait. Later a teaful Jackie and Draya got real about the whole Orlando-Chantel situation. The uninvited Brittish got some good news about her boo while Brandi was talking some ish about how she and Draya are “friendly” but not friends. There were tears and punches and a black-eyed Sundy sought out revenge. Then the ladies drank and talked motherhood and Sundy’s ass was naked. Oh, but then hell no, the next morning they were all like, “Um nevermind.”

Check out the video highlights and tune in tonight for an all new Basketball Wives LA at 8 PM ET/PT.

by (@lizburrito)

This Is Hot 97 is a show unlike most other current reality shows out there these days. For starters, don’t call it a “reality show.” Instead, you can refer to it as the cast does, as an “unscripted comedy series.” “This is a show about the Hot 97 hallways,” DJ Cipha Sounds explains. And as for the ratchet factor? There is none. “This show is about positive vibes and family,” Ebro told fans at the This Is Hot 97 premiere party this week. “If y’all want more drama then this show ain’t for you.”

Watch the cast panel and interviews from the premiere party in the clip above to learn more about the show which has it’s official premiere this Monday at 10:30 PM ET/PT!

"Who Party The Hardest?" - NBA All-Star Weekend 2014
Love & Hip Hop Atlanta star Benzino (also known as Raymond Scott) was shot today in Boston while riding in his mother’s funeral procession. HipHopHollywood reports that Benzino’s car was shot at by another vehicle while he was on his way to the funeral service and he was taken to the Duxbury, MA police station and later to South Shore Hospital where he remains in stable condition.

The Boston Globe also reports:

“The shooting occurred after an argument between family members, but investigators are now working to determine what sparked the violence. In his statement, Cruz said that a person driving a Bentley shot the driver of a red Dodge SUV, who got out of his car and was taken to the Duxbury Police Department by a passerby, before being taken to the hospital.”

The shooter, who is thought to be a relative, was apprehended and charged with armed assault with intent to murder. We’ll keep fans updated with more news as it comes and we wish Zino the best, and a very speedy recovery.
