In an effort to keep that money train going–her words, not mine–Basketball Wives star Evelyn Lozada dishes to VH1 about her cast mate Meeka Claxton, being a villain on the show, and her now settled feud with Tami Roman plus the update on her Non-factor tshirts. Check out excerpts of her interview below, followed by head b*tch in charge Shaunie O’Neal’s thoughts on Meeka and her potential return next season.

Do you ever worry that people see you as a villain on this show?

You need to have a really thick skin to be on this show. I know Suzie can’t even watch the show after we’re done taping because she can’t take it, but you have to get used to that and expect that people will label you. I think people take me being honest and straightforward as me being a bitch but I don’t see anything wrong with that. I’d rather be a villain than a sweet girl, that’s not me.

Honesty is such a big issue on the show.

Everyone’s not honest though. That’s why there’s problems with certain cast members. They aren’t honest and they create drama and lies. That’s why there’s the drama we have on the show. Meeka running around and talking about everybody, it got her in a mess. Meeka just came on as a fan of the show, she sent her picture in, she really wanted to be on the show, the producers didn’t search for her. She tried so hard to fit in instead of just being herself and that’s where things backfired.

You never had direct drama with her, that we saw anyway. Was there any more to your relationship?

After watching the show and seeing certain comments that she made like “I felt that they wanted me to choose sides,” it pisses me off because we made it very clear when we first met and it was on film, “Make your own opinions.” We told her how we feel but base your own opinions. But during filming, I told her to her face, “I don’t like you and I don’t hate you. I feel nothing toward you.” She hasn’t done anything to me directly, it’s just that, why would she say that? And this bullsh*t lawsuit she has with Tami, I think it’s ridiculous.

Even before the fight episode aired, Tami had been saying that Meeka was not a victim and that, you know, she raised her hand up and all that. From what you saw, is that what happened?

Look, this is my thing, everybody handles things differently and as anybody knows, Tami has a temper and especially if you’re lying about her and Meeka was twisting around Tami’s words and it’s kind of…maybe you wouldn’t handle the situation that way but when you’re talking about Tami…

Did you ever think Tami’s lawsuit against you would happen?

No, I thought it was ridiculous. I continued to sell the shirts and I’m still selling them.

So what’s the deal with that, didn’t you max out at your 500 shirts?

You know what, I could probably guess that I sold more than 500 but I didn’t look at my quarterly numbers. I didn’t want to come here lying, so I just chose not to know. I didn’t check.

Don’t you worry about breaking your word with Tami? What if she’s upset that you went over that limit?

I’d say that everyone’s here to make money, everyone signs on to this show for a reason, to promote something, so this opportunity came to me, it was a topic of conversation on the show, and I would be an idiot not to profit from it. Listen, it’s a recession!

What does Chad think about Jennifer’s comments about him?

Chad doesn’t really care about anything. We ran into her at the movie theater and they didn’t talk and that made me very uncomfortable, so obviously the fact that he hasn’t said anything says a lot. I feel like I’m in the middle. And it stems from the interview.

Do you ever watch the show and regret anything or wish the fights didn’t happen?

I think everyone does. But you’re forced to deal with things you normally wouldn’t deal with. So you’re already going into filming pissed and and then things happen and it just builds and builds and builds and things happen…We really are nice people though, I swear.

Also adding her two cents about Meeka is ringleader producer Shaunie O’Neal. Of her costar, Shaunie says, “I didn’t spend a lot of time with her, I experienced her on a few occasions, but the most time I spent with her was in Rome and that’s when I figured out that she was a little sketchy…but I still gave her the benefit of the doubt.” However, it was that fateful trip to Italy when Shaunie realized that their friendship wasn’t going to work.

She continues, “I knew she was not going to mesh with any of us. I just don’t find her to be an honest person at all and I think her intentions, I don’t know exactly what they were. We have a mutual friend outside the show who let me know that she wanted to come on and be this star and shine, but the way she chose to do it, not so much. All of us could probably take a vote right now and never want to see Meeka again and that’d be just fine.”

As for a potential season four of the show, Shaunie admits that she’d be just fine if Meeka didn’t return. Um, doesn’t she have control over that? Of course, since Shaunie just simply hates drama (eyes rolling), I’m betting we’ll see Meeka at least a little bit next season.

THOUGHTS ON EVELYN AND SHAUNIE’S COMMENTS ABOUT MEEKA? SURPRISED EVELYN IS STILL MAKING THE NON FACTOR T-SHIRTS? DO YOU WANT MEEKA WILL RETURN FOR SEASON FOUR?

Last night’s Jersey Shore begins where last week’s ended. Mike didn’t end up in a menage a twin, Sam and Rawn are googly-eyed and in love, and Snooks is still livid at Mike for trying to sabotage her relationship with Jionni.

The slutty twin wakes up, but her purer version wants to sleep in with Vinny. After she leaves, Vinny describes to Ronnie the tag-team/robbery that Deena pulled on him last night. They both hooked up with the “good” twin, and I’m starting to wonder if there’s just one slutty twin and MTV is using Parent Trap cloning technology.

The Situation is telling the guys about Snooki cheating on Jionni with him two months ago. Across the via, the girls are likewise gossiping about the dudes. After all the crap Mike has been talking, Snooki doesn’t want to eat Sunday dinner with him. The girls also laugh about Vinny getting Deena’s sloppy seconds in the bedroom. Not as humorous to Deena is the guys teasing her about her lady lovin’ as they prepare the family meal. She gets super mad and storms out of the kitchen. Vinny predicts it’s going to be a great dinner.

Russell Armstrong, estranged husband of Beverly Hills Real Housewife Taylor Armstrong, was honored yesterday at a memorial service at Forest Lawn in Burbank, California a week after his apparent suicide. Taylor reportedly gave the eulogy while wearing her wedding ring, telling the crowd, “People didn’t know the Russell, I knew.”

Taylor told the story of Russell’s proposal, and how he had one of his son’s present her the engagement ring so she knew she was accepted by his children. She also discussed the cross Russell always wore which was engraved with his children’s initials. He added Taylor’s initials to the cross as well, hoping she would help him keep his children close. “I will keep that promise,” Taylor said in her speech.

Neither Russell’s two sons from a previous relationship or Kennedy, his daughter with Taylor, were in attendance. Radaronline reports that Taylor thought her daughter would be too young to understand what was happening.

An insider reveals, “Taylor doesn’t think it’s in Kennedy’s best interests to go to the memorial. It’s very hard to grasp as a 5-year-old, and given the way in which Russell died, well, Taylor doesn’t want Kennedy to accidentally overhear someone talking about Russell’s suicide. Taylor is protecting Kennedy, period. This little girl has been through enough with her parent’s divorce, and now having to deal with her dad’s death.”

Russell’s family was absent from yesterday’s funeral, which was not filmed by Bravo. A second service is planned in his native Texas. Russell’s body was cremated, and his ashes were divided between Taylor and his parents.

While her daughter was absent, Taylor had the support of her fellow Beverly Hills cast mates. UsWeekly reports Lisa Vanderpump, Adrienne Maloof-Nassif and husband Dr. Paul Nassif, Kyle and Kim Richards, as well as New York Housewife Ramona Singer. Even though some of her relationships with the ladies were rocky, she decided to invite all of them to the memorial service.

A source claims, “A lot of thought and consideration went into Taylor’s decision to invite the entire cast. In the end, Taylor didn’t want to exclude anyone, and even though she doesn’t get along with all of them, Taylor wanted them there. The girls have been very supportive to her throughout this entire tragedy. Taylor needs her friends around her more than ever.”

Photos are below of the RHOBH cast attending the funeral.

Meanwhile RadarOnline is now reporting today that Taylor is telling her close friends Bravo is not to blame for Russell’s death and that she wants the network to go ahead with its scheduled Sep. 5 premiere.

A source close to Taylor states that Taylor feels “Russell’s suicide wasn’t caused by the show or Bravo. Russell just simply cracked over ongoing legal and financial issues. The show bears no responsibility for his death, neither does the network.” The source continues, “In fact, Bravo has been extremely supportive of Taylor during this tragedy.”

And despite a report that stated Bravo had decided to postpone the premiere, the source states the network will likely go ahead with the scheduled premiere. “It looks like the show will indeed premiere on September 5. Editing is still being done on the show. Russell is either going to be edited down, or completely out of the show. However, Bravo and the show won’t be ignoring the Russell’s suicide. They simply can’t, to do so, would be disrespectful to the situation and what Taylor is going through. It will be addressed in a manner that is dignified and appropriate,” the source adds.

TELL US – THOUGHTS ON THE LATEST & TAYLOR’S REPORTED COMMENTS? SHOULD BRAVO GO AHEAD WITH THE PREMIERE? SHOULD RUSSELL’S SUICIDE BE ADDRESSED?

On last night’s Teen Mom, Maci has baby fever, Catelynn and Tyler work towards another visit with Carlie, Amber fixes up her house AND gets a date, while Farrah is going back to Cali, to Cali, to Cali.

Maci has dropped most of her classes to spend more time with her son, so it makes sense that she takes him to daycare. While I agree the little guy could benefit from socializing with other toddlers, wouldn’t putting him in daycare free her up to actually attend school? And now, does she even have much school to attend? Ridic. Bentley enjoys the classroom, but has a meltdown when Maci and Kyle leave. Maci hates to see him so upset, but Kyle is able to go back into the classroom to calm him. Awww, Maci thinks he’d be such a great dad if when they decide to pop out some babies.

John Salley was back last night with the second half of the Basketball Wives reunion. There’s more drama than the first half, but it’s just a lot of yelling and cussing about the same old beef. All in all, it was a mediocre end to a mediocre season.

John dives right in, bringing up Meeka’s feelings that the show wasn’t a true representation of who she truly is…and he asks the other ladies if they agree. Meeka is not amused at his attempt to poll the other “wives,” and Evelyn guarantees that Meeka would do another season if asked. Right then and there, Tami vows that if Meeka returns, she won’t. Mmm hmm. Sure.

Jersey Shore’s “Twinning” aired last night with Mike winning twins. He loses one to Deena while losing his friendship with Snooks. Rawn and Sam make-up, while Vinny and Pauly, as always, entertain the masses.

The episode starts out with Florida chick trying to find her clothes while the Situation tries to find her a cab. Mike gets distracted on his way to the phone and feels the need to nap on the patio furniture where he proceeds to get attacked by a pigeon. Not once, but twice. How can you not believe in karma?

Ronnie can’t believe that after three seasons of this mess, he is just now realizing how alike he and Snooki are. They are both DTWO (down to work out), DTD (down to drink), DTP (down to party), and DTHAGT (down to have a good time)…I assume that DTF is implied, although hopefully not with each other. Neither are DTRAM (down to read a map) so when they can’t find the gym, the pair opts for cocktails at a local bistro. Snooki seems to be the only one in the house who hope Rawn and Sam reconcile because the drama Snooks brings pales in comparison to their relationship.

You’re all sitting on pins and needles, I’m sure, knowing you are mere days away from Kimmie Kardashian’s ultimate season finale nuptials to beau Kris Humphries. This is just a thought, but perhaps she could do a crossover onto next season’s Basketball Wives!

So is Kimmie bridezilla-ing it up as the countdown draws to a close? Not in the least! Yeah, right. She’s just relaxed and enjoying the days leading up to her lavish wedding. Her mom A source No, her actual mom this time, tells People, “She’s very calm. It’s just her personality. She knows what she wants and she’s very focused on the day and is just enjoying the process.”

Kris Jenner is thrilled that her daughter has found “the one.” She continues, “She’s doing great, and I think that any mom just feels happy when their child finds the person they want to be with for the rest of their lives.” And with the rest of their lives starting this weekend, Kris is hoping that more grandchildren will be in the momager’s not so distant future, joking, “And they better not be stingy!”

With the sure to be over the top wedding taking place on Saturday, we will no doubt be inundated with pictures and video of the big day. Hollywoodlife has confirmed that the coveted exclusive wedding photos will go to People Magazine…for a mere $500,000. It was earlier speculated that the magazine was shelling out a cool million for the spread. Discount! Another no-brainer? The wedding will be next week’s cover story.

A source reveals, “She has a great relationship with the magazine, she and her sisters have done their other life milestones with the magazines, and it’s the most credible and legitimate of all the weeklies. Plus, People has the money to spend on these photos. Not to mention it has millions more readers than the other celeb weeklies. It’s not at all a surprise it’ll be People’s cover.”

ARE YOU EXCITED FOR KIMMIE’S WEDDING? WILL YOU BE BUYING NEXT WEEK’S ISSUE OF PEOPLE? HOW LONG DO YOU THINK THIS WILL LAST?


On last night’s Teen Mom, dare I say, most of the cast displayed more-mature-than normal behavior. Granted, it’s on a skewed scale. Amber and Gary acting half as mature as Catelynn and Tyler is a milestone, while Maci and Kyle playing house doesn’t score as high on the scale as Farrah making peace with her mother while teaching Sophia more about her deceased father.

Kyle is still looking for a job, and while Maci finds that fact helpful when it comes to raising Bentley, it’s a huge distraction when it comes to doing her schoolwork. She is having a difficult time juggling potty training, being a faux housewife, and getting her homework finished.
