On last night’s episode of Basketball Wives: L.A., Jackie played puppet master while Draya tried to keep her in check. Malaysia previewed her jewelry line, and Gloria contemplated her upcoming (maybe? maybe not?) marriage to Matt. Laura did her best to dodge Jackie’s tirades, and Imani…well, she showed up for the last five minutes.
Jackie is confiding in Draya about how Laura has been talking badly about Jackie behind her back. Given that the ladies are all at Laura’s charity event, Jackie doesn’t want to start anything, but she wants Laura to know she’s on to her. Malaysia arrives and can tell that Jackie is upset about…something.
Of course, with Jackie’s ever changing personalities, the ladies are probably used to that. Laura praises Jackie on her outfit, and Jackie politely accepts her compliment with a pointed, “Thanks, you don’t think it makes me look pregnant, do you?” There are a few more pregnancy snarks from Jackie who is pulling up her shirt to show her belly, and Laura looks a tad uncomfortable while the other girls just look plain confused. Apparently, Laura has been dogging Jackie’s fashion sense, weight, and hair all over town. Um, what’s that whole pot/kettle/those who live in glass houses saying? I doubt we’ll ever see either of these ladies on a best dressed list.

It appears there are some pretty nasty rumors swirling about one of the ladies of Basketball Wives LA, and it seems VH1′s editing department is performing quite the cover-up should the accusations prove to be true. And if the rumors aren’t true, you can always sue the source…just ask Miami’s Evelyn Lozada!
Um, perhaps the apology we saw Draya Michele give Laura Govan on last week’s episode of Basketball Wives LA may not have been for simply talking some smack years ago. Reach Around Radio exclusively reports that Draya may have gotten a little too close with Laura’s baby daddy 4x Gilbert Arenas…at the stadium no less. Apparently VH1 used it’s editing magic to make it appear Draya was saying she was sorry for gossiping about Laura and her children when she she was actually apologizing for bopping Laura’s man.
Reach Around Radio reports Gilbert is not denying these allegations. In fact, he claims that he even passed off Draya to a couple of friends, including Deshawn Stevenson. Classy. The radio hosts reveal that Gilbert may even be airing this dirty laundry on the reunion. If this story is true, you have to wonder why VH1 is skewing the program to make Draya seem like the ultimate victim. I am in no way saying that the women have any right to gang up on or bully any other cast mate. However, if Draya is guilty of diddling one of the other lady’s meal tickets, it’s a bit more understandable why she would be negatively on their radar. If this story is false, Draya may have quite the defamation claim…
And speaking of lawsuits, Miami Basketball Wife football fiancee Evelyn Lozada is suing internet site Media Take Out for publishing a story in September which questioned her fidelity to fiancee Chad Ochocinco. Well, it didn’t actually question her fidelity…it flat out called her a cheater. The article, entitled “Evelyn Lozada from the Basketball Wives was CREEPING… with one of Chad’s BALLER FRIENDS!!! (Explosive Details),” accused the reality starlet of sleeping with her man’s best friend (and fellow VH1 media whore darling) Terrell Owens.
Evelyn’s lawsuit alleges that over 250,000 readers viewed the article causing her “emotion distress” (huh?) and damaging her reputation as both a career woman and a public figure/”television personality.” Evelyn is seeking $15,000 in damages, as well as additional money for court costs and interest. The article is still available on the site, but now simply reads, “As a courtesy to Evelyn, we have removed this article.” Well wasn’t that kind of them…
A new episode of Basketball Wives: L.A. airs tonight at 8PM ET on VH1.
WHAT DO YOU THINK ABOUT THE ACCUSATIONS AGAINST DRAYA? DOES THIS CHANGE YOUR OPINION OF HER ON THE SHOW? DO YOU THINK EVELYN HAS A CASE AGAINST MEDIA TAKEOUT OR IS THIS JUST AN ATTEMPT TO STAY RELEVANT?
Last night’s episode of Jersey Shore was a hot mess of Mike hate and meatball madness. Pauly D manages to avoid Deena’s advances for “the sex,” while JWoww and Sam relish in their new found (and slightly surprising, given past seasons) friendship.
We rejoin the group with Snooki on the phone with Jionni discussing her smush session with Vinny. Jionni is pissed and Snooki is fanning her face to dry up her tears and while cocking her pink sequined ball cap to the side like a rapper. Jionni can’t handle her news, but he’s willing to continue talking to her. After they hang up, Vinny asks if Snooks wants to cuddle with him to make her feel better. He’s too funny.

Last night’s Survivor gave us a peek into a changing, slightly crazier Coach, who we are sure to see more of in upcoming episodes. The duel pitted friend against friend, and the immunity challenge was just a whole lot of gross, gagging nastiness.
Stacey joins her biffle Christine on Redemption Island. Stacey relays to Christine all the lying and drama that has been going on with the Upolu. She tells Christine that Coach is the ring-leader (and the pot stirrer), and that all the people in the blue tribe are heading to hell wearing gasoline drawers. If Stacey ever gets tired of being a mortician, she can take her one-liners on the road.

However, last night’s elimination was just as exciting for me. Why? First of all, the “celebrities” watching in the ballroom got to put in their two cents on the performances. Hello Pee-Wee Herman! Greetings Donny Osmond! Great to see you Steve Sanders Ian Ziering! And of course Courteney Cox Arquette and Kris and Bruce Jenner Kardashian have their say. It’s like the who’s who of has-beens (not you, Courteney…I hope).
Susan Boyle performed Unchained Melody “the song from Ghost” according to Brooke Burke Charvet, but I think the Everly Brothers claimed it first. Ricki Lake is the first celebrity deemed safe, followed by my man J.R. Martinez. Rob Kardashian isn’t so lucky…he’s potentially on the chopping block.
Julianne Hough also returned “home” to the DWTS stage where she got her start to perform a routine with her co-star from the movie Footloose. They are accompanied by the musical stylings of Blake Shelton singing the iconic Kenny Loggins’ song. Girlfriend is a talented dancer…let’s hope she’s half as good an actress because this DWTS is just one long advertisement for her remake.
The next three pairs are showcased. Viewers relive Chynna Phillips‘ choreography black-out, Carson Kressley’spirate booty dance, and the routine that the judges called Chaz Bono’s best to date. Chaz and last night’s lowest scoring Carson are safe, with Chynna joining Rob in the bottom three.
The siblings Hough perform the twist together before the fate of the remaining three couples is revealed. Hope Solo and David Arquette are safe, but Nancy Grace must boogie her way to the to the bottom. The bottom three are solidified with Rob owning three more points than Chynna or Nancy.
Nancy Grace is the first saved of the the three, and Chynna Phillips, the front runner at the season’s opener, is eliminated. Rob Kardashian can breath another sigh of relief…he’ll be around for next week’s 80′s themed dancing.
DO YOU THINK CHYNNA SHOULD HAVE BEEN VOTED OFF THE SHOW? WHAT DID YOU THINK OF JULIANNE’S RETURN? WHO DO YOU THINK WILL BE THE NEXT TO GO?
Last night’s episode of Basketball Wives: L.A. was just a whole bunch of lunch. The ladies were meeting up left and right to gossip over whoever wasn’t invited to restaurant…and nine times out of ten, that person was Draya.
Imani and Malaysia meet for lunch. Draya has reached out to Malaysia, and Imani teases that the two will be new BFFs. Malaysia is unsure as to why Draya wants to meet up with her. Sure, she was compassionate about her situation, but that hardly means she wants to be buddy-buddy. Imani thinks it is Draya’s way of being manipulative.
Gloria heads to an audition for Cedric the Entertainer’s new show. Her first reading is dubbed “a practice round,” and Gloria says it’s hard to act as if she’s flirting with her crush when she is reading with an older woman. She is praised on her second go-round, but I don’t know if this is the kind of publicity Cedric the Entertainer was hoping for with his new endeavor.

The Govan sisters, who are still very much in the drama on the show, are dishing as to what is yet to come this season. In an interview with HollywoodLife, Gloria Govan discusses her relationship with fiance and L.A. Laker Matt Barnes, while her sister Laura teases about what’s happening in later episodes.
Gloria explains her love of Matt, saying, “A lot of people assume my relationship is perfect, although I don’t ever recall [claiming it is]. You get a great 3D view of our relationship this season. You’ll see us going to therapy. I think a lot of people will be surprised and confused, but that’s where our relationship was.”
She also discusses bringing the controversialDraya Michele into the group, a groupie jump-off lady Laura Govan isn’t going to be biffles with any time soon. Gloria elaborates, “I kind of feel like with Draya it’s sleeping with the enemy. I feel like she has potential to be a really cool person, if she got her priorities straight. She’s not someone I would call to go to lunch, but I don’t want to body slam her.” Well, that’s kind of nice, right?
Laura agrees, asserting, “You’re going to get surprised. It’s almost like a Lifetime movie. You’re going to be like, ‘What the hell?’ You’re going to be like, ‘Laura’s so shady.’” Who thinks that? Everyone? Laura reveals, “You’ll go through a couple weeks when you think everyone’s crazy. Then its all going to come full circle.” She also wants viewers to know it’s not all about cage-boxing and cat fights. She says, “I do want to get some key things out — like, we run foundations. We do things for shelters. Besides all the drama, there are a lot of things we do do as women.”
Laura continues, “I wasn’t on this show to be famous. I wasn’t trying to win an Oscar. I’m not sure if I’d do a second season if asked.” Well, there’s good news…she’s not expecting an Academy Award for her work on this reality show. Further, I’m glad to see she’s taking a page from the Bravo Housewives play book and saying she may not want to do another season. If she’s not asked back, it will be imperative she has these statements printed so it doesn’t look like she was fired.
Gloria, on the other hand, isn’t going anywhere if season two is a go. She exclaims, “I hope we get offered another season. I would jump on the opportunity.”
Bad editing or drama-avoiding no-show? If you’ve been following the craziness behind Basketball Wives: L.A.’s Kimsha Artest’s absence from recent episodes, the viewers may finally have a resolution. While stories swirled that Kimsha had gotten the freeze-out from producers, she is now insisting that she didn’t get cut out of the show. Instead, she maintains that she took herself out of the drama because she didn’t want to be associated with such cattiness.
In an interview with BlackSportsOnline, Kimsha explains, “I don’t want to be affiliated with the shenanigans, the drama, the back and forth…it’s uncalled for, it’s childish, and it’s just not me.” She goes on to explain the fake Facebook fallout, stating, “Anybody who read that could have known that’s not me. Period.” As for legal ramifications with the faux page, Kimsha continues, “We’ll definitely figure out who it is. I’ve got a good idea, but I ain’t gonna blow them up just yet.” When asked if there is any truth as to the rumored beef with her and Miami’s Shaunie O’Neal and Evelyn Lozada, Kimsha replies, “I don’t know Shaunie. I don’t know Evelyn. What beef?”
The producers of the VH1 spin-off seem to be on the same page, relaying that Kimsha wasn’t edited from the show, instead she just stopped showing up to film. While the show’s creators may not agree with how Artest left, they are corroborating her side of the story. The producers issued a statement saying, “When Kimsha Artest signed on to be in ‘Basketball Wives: LA,’ we were very excited to have her onboard. That is why we were confused and disheartened when after a limited number of days shooting she stopped showing up for filming. This is the sole and only reason Kimsha has not appeared on more episodes of the series. Her minimal coverage on the show was entirely her decision and not that of Shed Media, VH1 or Executive Producer Shaunie O’Neal. ‘Basketball Wives: LA’ continues to be a ratings success for VH1 every Monday night.”
Now that we’ve solved the mystery of the absent cast member, a new episode of Basketball Wives: L.A. (sans Kimsha) airs tonight at 8PM ET on VH1.

WHAT DO YOU THINK OF KIMSHA’S STATEMENTS? WOULD YOU LIKE TO SEE A SECOND SEASON OF BASKETBALL WIVES: L.A.?
You know those sisters Kardashian…they can’t be out of the limelight too long or they start to shrivel. It’s kind of like they are the exact opposite of Gremlins, yet just as creepy.
Unless you’ve been living in a cave, you have no doubt been inundated with the good ol’ U.S. of A.’s version of the Royal Wedding. Okay, so not America’s version, but Kim Kardashian’s delusional self-titled version. Kimmie’s groom Kris Humphries is now getting a crash course in Kardashian, by joining his new bride on a media blitz to tout the two-part wedding special — Kim’s Fairytale Wedding: A Kardashian Event, which, of course, airs October 9th and 10th on E!
The hottest topic for the reality love birds? When are they going to add to the Kardashian (er, Humphries?) clan? Kimmie says, “I think we would wait like, a year before we really start trying to have kids.” She explains, “I think we want to figure out where [Kris] is gonna play and figure out his career and if we have to pack up and move somewhere, like the Midwest. Who knows?”
Kris agrees. He continues Kimmie’s sentiment saying he would like “lots of kids…having fun together, knowing that we can have fun and that life is fun and that we can spend time together and support each other.” Awww. It sounds almost like the Kardashian/Jenner family….minus the constant film crews.
The couple also joined Jay Leno who questioned the pair about wedded bliss, as well as adjusting to living together. When asked which of Kris’ habits most gets on her nerves, Kimmie divulged, “He, like, literally barks like a dog. It’s like him and his boys. Like one’s in the other room and they, like, all wanna leave, (so) they’ll be like, ‘Ar! Ar! Ar!’”
Humphries defends himself, exclaiming, “Not like that! It’s one bark!” And to be fair, he does kind of look like one of the werewolves from the Twilight Saga, so the barking makes sense to me.
While the newlywed ribbing seems to be all in good fun, Kimmie does provide a teaser for the wedding extravaganza. She admits, “My sisters attack him.” Kim further cites that her younger sister Khloe Kardashian “says whatever is on her mind. She just has no filter. Kris is the same exact way. They’ll go back and forth at each other and neither one of them will back down. It’s really hard.” You know what else is really hard? Avoiding tabloid stories about tension between Humphries and Kimmie’s sisters. While the rumors of unrest in this six(ish) week union run rampant, Kim reveals it’s for the ratings, “[T]he family gets through it.”
Below is a preview clip of Kim and Kris fighting over Kim wanting to keep her Kardashian last name from the upcoming E! wedding special!
While the older Kardashian ladies are dealing with cattiness among their bazillion reality shows, younger half-sister Kendall Jenner continues to make her mark on the modeling world. The 15-year-old stunner, who has been modeling with the Wilhelmina Agency since age thirteen, is the new face of White Sands, an Australian swimwear line. In fact, back in August, Kimmie joined little sis Kendall on her swimwear shoot. She posted pictures of her model sibling, saying, “How stunning does she look!?!? I couldn’t be more proud!”
Perhaps while reality gold runs through the veins of the Kardashian sisters, it’s modeling where the younger Jenner siblings will make their mark. The youngest of the reality family, Kylie Jenner, recently walked the runway in a show for singer/angsty designer Avril Lavigne, who is the girlfriend of Kylie and Kendall’s half-brother (and no stranger to reality television himself), Brody Jenner.
Below are the new bathing suit photos of Kendall!
