Oh, Love & Hip Hop. Will you ever go back to just being a reality show, or are we going to have to watch this scripted soap opera interspersed with some R & B videos? It's so bad, but yet I can't turn away…and not just because I blog about it. There is no doubt that I'd be watching it anyway. It's so bad, it's good, and last night's episode was no exception.
We begin as Rich Dollaz is meeting with Yandy Smith to get some advice on his relationship with Erica Mena. She chastises him for mixing business with pleasure, and teases him for blushing when he talks about Erica. Rich wants Erica to learn how to control her temper excitement, and he wishes that Olivia Longott would do the record as a personal favor. Yandy reminds him that even though he and Liv are friends, it's understandable that she wouldn't want to have to share him as a manager. Rich tries to convince Yandy that even though Erica is all kinds of crazy, she has good intentions. Yandy agrees to go to lunch with Erica to see if she can reign her in a bit. Rich is appreciative, and he wants Yandy's honest opinion as to how he should proceed in the relationship…if at all.
Tahiry Jose is cooking steak and beans for Joe Budden to reward him for the clean drug test. Now she believes she can somewhat trust what Joe has to say. She apologizes for not believing that he's been sober. Joe is about to go on tour, and Tahiry reminds him to call her if he feels the urge to fall off the wagon. In his absence, Tahiry plans to work on her recording career. She is always nervous to talk about her music with Joe because she respects him so much as an artist. Joe doesn't doubt that she'll accomplish her goals, but he also thinks that not everyone is cut out for the industry. She invites him to come to come to one of her studio sessions. Joe jokingly tells Tahiry that as much as he knows she wants him to spend the night, he's got an early morning. Classy guy.
Guess what, y'all!?! Kim Kardashian is tiring of being a reality star. Isn't that the best news you've heard in a while from the Kardashian Kamp? I shouldn't get too ahead of myself. She still wants to be on television, it's just now she fancies herself an actress. Thanks, Tyler Perry. I blame you for this nonsense.
Not only is Kim hoping to branch out, Kourtney Kardashian's beau Scott Disick wants to put his name (and cash–is it his or Kourtney's, I wonder?) behind yet another restaurant night club. If you happen to be in Miami during the two to three weeks it's actually in business, please check it out and report back to me!
I'm going to be honest. I sometimes miss my guido and guidette fist pumping friends from Jersey Shore. Don't get me wrong, the series needed to end. They were too old to keep partying at the shore, and they had undergone too many life changes. But, we had some really fun times together, didn't we? Nicole "Snooki" Polizzi may have done the biggest 180, starting out as the orangest, drunkest meatball and transforming into a calmer version of her former self when she became a mom.
Thankfully, I can still get a smaller dose of Snooki thanks to the Internet…and usually a small dose is all I need. Snooki is now designing her seventh tattoo that she is getting as a tribute to baby Lorenzo and any other future kids she may have with fiance Jionni LaValle. In fact, she plans on her and Jionni getting matching tats!
The women of Real Housewives of Beverly Hills seem to be following in the footsteps of their Bravo counterparts. Every day one of them is giving an exclusive interview, and usually at the expense of one of their cast members. Now Camille Grammer is hoping that the hatefulness will end. Or at least that's what she's saying so that she'll stay in the tabloids.
Adrienne Maloof is also working overtime to make sure that she remains relevant, and what better way to do that then to keep reminding us of her May-December romance with Sean Stewart. Enough already! She actually goes so far as to call herself a trendsetter. Yes, you read that correctly. And no, I couldn't make this up if I tried.
There are some crazy people in this world…and even reality stars aren't immune to the insanity. Of course, when you think about it, the women on Basketball Wives are slightly off their rockers, so it's a tad ironic that the crazy is affecting them. This time around, new cast member Tasha Marbury is being harrassed by a woman who claims to have had an affair with her husband. The only problem is that Stephon Marbury has never met the lady.
Tasha isn't the only one who is being affected by some negaitve energy. Former BBW star Chad Ochocinco Johnson has also fallen on even harder times (who would have thought that was possible?) of the coconut water variety. It doesn't get much worse than that, does it?
Alexia is facing some heat from her former country club, and she's now at the center of of a legal situation that doesn't seem to be going away any time soon. Bless her heart. I know that Alexia has a lot going on in her personal life, but girlfriend needs to get her accounting in check—literally!
New Mob Wives cast member Love Majewski appears relatively tame according to the antics of the original ladies. Of course, every time she opens her mouth, she reminds us that this wasn't always the case. It's a wonder any of Love's exes are still alive, given her penchant for guns, knives, and a little something-something in her cooking.
Of course, it hasn't been all bad for Love. She spent four years in Isreal so she wouldn't have to testify against her ex Ray Merolle in his car theft trial, and she was once Sharon Osbourne's personal make-up artist. That doesn't sound like a violent lady, now does it? Welp, just keep reading…
