Watch The Entire VH1 Reality Roundtable From The Big And Best Of 2012 Featuring Jackie, Yandy, And Renee

Last night we held a VH1 Reality Roundtable featuring Basketball Wives L.A. star Jackie Christie, Love And Hip Hop star Yandy Smith, and Mob WivesRenee Graziano, to discuss the big issues of 2012: Women in reality TV (specifically the arguments and reconciliations between them), the best reality moments of the year, and oh yes, that phenomenon known as Stevie J. In this, the first highlight from our panel, the ladies watch the clip of Jennifer and Evelyn‘s reconciliation at the Basketball Wives reunion, and while Jackie comments that she wished things has gone as smoothly for her and Laura Govan at their own recent reunion, Renee says she’s actually not as quick to reconcile anymore. “You will not cross me. That pass you talk about? You get one,” she said, referring to some drama we can expect to see on Mob Wives season three.

Keep watching as the ladies sing along to the Mama Jones hit “Psychotic,” Renee talks about the addiction recovery process she’s been through recently, and Jackie gives us her best Stevie J rat face.

Big And Best Of 2012

You know how the Grinch’s heart grew three sizes the day he landed in Whoville? I think that’s how everyone at VH1 felt today after our Reality Roundtable panel discussion with Yandy Smith, Renee Graziano, and Jackie Christie. We all liked these ladies before, but now that it’s over and we got to work closely with them, listen to them gush about their kids, and get along famously with one another, we looove them. We’ll be posting some footage from our roundtable discussion (where we got to some juicy info about drama on Mob Wives season three and the ladies’ unanimous love for Stevie J, plus an announcement from Jackie that she’ll be hosting on the red carpet at this year’s VH1 DIVAS concert Sunday night!), but for now, here are a few photos of the trio backstage.
