On last night’s Love & Hip Hop, it was the Producer’s Tell All! I have to say I didn’t hate the format as much as I thought I would. With the ladies not yelling over one another, it was easier to get more questions answered… and they seemed to ask the questions viewers would want to know, aka no John Salley softballs!
The show’s executive producer Mona Scott-Young reveals that because one several cast members now refuse to be in the same room together, coughs Chrissy, the show has to forgo the traditional reunion format. Instead, viewers are treated to a behind the scenes look at the inner-workings of the show as well as one-on-one interviews with the cast.
First up, Jim Jones! The man, the myth, the dude at the center of a lot of the ladies’ drama. This season’s new cast mate, Yandy Smith was the rapper’s manager for the past eight years, and she was supposedly brought on at the request of his girlfriend Chrissy Lampkin. However, quickly, the ladies began feuding, with Jim caught in the middle. It resulted in a total breakdown of Jim and Yandy’s professional relationship which we watched play out over the course of the season.

In case you don’t remember, Kourtney Kardashian is pregnant. Since making the announcement just days after Kim Kardashian filed for divorce, Kourtney has been pretty mum on what’s going on with her uterus. I just assumed she was happily baking a new little Disick and there was nothing much to get worked up over – which is a nice change for the Kardashians.
Well, a new report from In Touch Weekly (available via their print edition) is claiming that there is major trouble in paradise between Kourtney and long-time beau and baby daddy,Scott Disick!
Viewers of the ever-annoying Kourtney and Kim Take New York witnessed Scott and Kourtney have a whole host of relationship problems, which they both claimed to have worked through. Nevertheless, it was surprising when shortly after filming ended, Kourtney announced her pregnancy. Perhaps they moved too fast!
Apparently, Scott has been picking on Kourtney and calling her fat as of late. During a recent dinner date, Scott’s taunting nearly left Kourtney in tears! “Scott was picking on her, making fun of her weight,” reveals an insider. “He even told the waiter that she would have ‘a side of beef.’” Even worse, Scott has taken to calling her “Portney”, as a way to describe her new supposedly portly figure. Scott’s comments and constant teasing have left Kourtney feeling insecure and unattractive.
According to insiders, Kourtney has come to expect this kind of behavior from Scott, who has been downright rude and unsupportive throughout her second pregnancy. Kourtney had believed having a second child would make Scott grow up and would reinforce their relationship, but sadly it’s made things worse! Scott has returned to his pre-Mason partyboy ways and is now spending countless nights out at the bars with this friends, flirting with other girls.
After a recent fight with Kourtney, Scott ditched his family for a wild time in Vegas at the opening of 10ak. “They had a fight, so Scott jumped on a plane and left her behind,” the source reveals. Scott has allegedly left all the parenting duties to Kourtney as well, while he flits around, focusing on his own whims. “Scott still expects Kourtney to wait on him,” the source says.”He’s just a dog.”
Because of Scott’s treatment of her and his disinterest in his family, Kourtney has started to believe Scott is only staying with her for her money! Scott has apparently become more aggressive with his demands to get his own slice of the Kardashian pie; wanting a larger percentage for appearing on their reality shows and lobbying for his own endorsement deals. It makes sense to me, but this is a family that does NOT like to share the wealth!
“He’s even tried to go behind her back to negotiate his own deal for rights to the baby’s first photos,” an insider shares. “It’s like all their baby is to him is another opportunity to cash in.”
So why does Scott’s bad behavior persist? Insiders report that the reality star refuses to leave Scott while she’s pregnant. “Scott gets whatever he wants because he knows she won’t leave him. Kourtney won’t learn,” the insider describes.
I’m not sure how much of this I buy based on what I saw on KKTNY – although, we know that show isn’t exactly a reliable source for reality! Sources have previously claimed that the trouble in their relationship is scripted! And speaking of reality…
Oh, for the love of irony… Kim and Leann Rimes have found religion. And each other. The twice divorced, sex tape siren and the adulteress have apparently bonded over their recent involvement in Christian fellowship. So that explains Kim’s sudden interest in Tebow!
A source tells toofab that Pastor Brad Johnson, who marriedKhloe Kardashianand Lamar Odom, introduced Kim and Leann while they were both attending services at his church, the Life Change Community Church in Agoura Hills.
The name of this church is PERFECT for what Kim needs, may I just say! Hopefully Leann’s life change will come in the form of knocking off the Twitter antics.
Kim and Leann had lunch together this Friday and then met up again at services on Sunday – which were also attended by Kourtney, Mason, pimpmomager Kris Jenner, and LeAnn’s husband Eddie Cibrian.
Kim and Leann have been spending the off days, since they don’t have jobs to speak of, tweeting about their new friendship and their new interest in the Lord. “So nice when your circle of supportive girl friends grows,” Leann wrote on Sunday following church. Kim responded with “Let’s all go swimming,” then teased about it being an inside joke. “@KimKardashian great seeing you and the fam. See you soon xoxo,” Leann added. If anyone can save those two it’s Jesus. I hope he’s up to the task!
In between praising the Lord and thanking him throughout her Twitter feed, Kim took time out to post yet another annoying kissy face photo!
IS SCOTT IGNORING KOURTNEY TO PARTY? DO YOU BELIEVE THAT HE’S TEASING HER ABOUT HER WEIGHT GAIN? ARE KIM AND LEANN SINCERE ABOUT THEIR NEW INTEREST IN FAITH OR IS THIS (AND THEIR FRIENDSHIP) A PUBLICITY STUNT TO REHAB THEIR BADLY DAMAGED IMAGES?
Following a TMZ report last year that Bryson was arrested after shoplifting razors from a local Walmart, there are numerous reports this morning that Bryson was hospitalized following a brutal bar fight.
Sources tell the StraightFromTheA blog that Bryson got into an altercation, at a local Atlanta night spot during an argument with another patron over a girl.
Words were reportedly exchanged and the two young men came to blows, resulting in Bryson being escorted to the hospital with several head wounds and a broken jaw. Other reports state Bryson also suffered multiple broken bones in his face. Yikes.
Nene however took to her twitter late yesterday to issue a non-denial denial. The Nene tweeted: “Don’t get me wrong, I love 2 b prayed 4 but sendin me well wishes about a bunch of lies is just crazy! The sh*t yall read & believe.”
Unfortunately for Nene, she forgot to get the denial memo to her son Bryson, who tweeted that he was indeed in the hospital and on pain killers. Bryson tweeted: “Soon as the doc bring wat i need i go 2 sleep,” later adding: “Yay dey jus walked n wit my meds ill be on da moon in 10,9,8,7,6,5,4,3,2,1 q.”
Alrighty. Moving on to Kim Zolciak and her former assistant Sweetie Hughes! If you recall, the two had a falling out late last year for reasons they never revealed, which led to Kim firing her. The duo, however, appear to have made up last month.
Well, according to a new report/blind item, a source is claiming Kim fired Sweetie because Sweetie allegedly stole from her and brought people into her home. It gets even better, as the source states Kim would never speak negatively of Sweetie, because Sweetie has a ton of dirt on her! Now that I believe!
“One of the blonder, paler-skinned Real Housewives Of Atlanta is rumored to have parted ways with her long-time, weave-wearing, darker-skinned assistant. After noticing that some random items were “missing” and seeing some unauthorized charges on her credit card the reality-show diva filed charges with local authorities and suspected that the assistant could be involved even though police apprehended the culprit. We’ve seen first hand on the show that there has been some tension between the two women because of laziness on the part of said employee. It is also rumored that the assistant has a new boyfriend that she brought to her surgically-enhanced employers house, and that was the straw that broke the cougar’s back!
Although she is said to be furious with her ex-assistant, she will not speak ill of her because the assistant has TONS of dirt on her and she don’t want those problems!”
Ai ya ya. All very interesting!
TELL US – THOUGHTS ON BRYSON BEING INVOLVED IN A DANGEROUS BAR FIGHT? DO YOU BELIEVE THE BLIND ITEM ABOUT SWEETIE AND KIM?
According to a new report by Star magazine, a source is being quoted as stating that they “are hesitant to get pregnant again while involved with MTV.”
The source goes on to say that Maci “really wants a daughter with her current boyfriend Kyle King.” What better way to liven up her storyline than to show her adjusting to being the mother of a girl, and shopping for little girl clothing? Think of all the adorable pink merchandising opportunities!
Leah, who recently became pregnant with fiance Jeremy Calvert, and then miscarried, is “still hoping to have a third child” with Jeremy. Again, this would be another great path to pursue; watching Leah juggle twins, her ex Corey, and a new baby. The only teen mom I worry about is Chelsea, who despite everything, still wants another baby with Adam Lind. The source agrees with me, and thinks another kid is a bad idea, with or without MTV: “She said she didn’t want to make babies with anyone else. It’s a recipe for disaster, if you ask me.”
A true recipe for disaster is attempting to have more children after you’ve become used to a huge MTV paycheck. Then again, these ladies may have just come down with a case of I Want My Own Show-itis.
In other news, unfortunately, there is more to report on Jenelle Evans. We last reported she was facing jail time for violating a restraining order against ex-roommate Hannah Inman, which included accusations of Jenelle allegedly posting naked photos of Hannah to Jenelle’s Facebook fan page. It didn’t come as a shock to find out that Jenelle is now being accused of harassing yet another friend, Amber Lane.
In a new report, Amber alleges Jenelle cyber-bullied her: ““I’ve spent days crying over what Jenelle posted about me online calling me a slut and a whore and reading comments from her thousands of fans saying I should kill myself. Jenelle is a bully — and she got what she deserved, going to jail twice in one week on the harassment charges.”
Other lovely allegations include a story of Jenelle throwing a baby crib out of a window and “destroying a family heirloom” of Amber’s. Amber thinks the only thing that will teach Jenelle to be nice is to get locked up, saying “[Jail] is the only way she’ll ever learn. Her bullying techniques are so harsh it could eventually push someone over the edge to hurt themselves or commit suicide.”
A new episode of Teen Mom 2 airs tonight on MTV at 10/9c.
TELL US: DO YOU THINK MACI, CHELSEA, AND LEAH SHOULD GET PREGNANT AGAIN? DO YOU THINK THIS IS A PLOY TO GET HIGHER SALARIES OR THEIR OWN SHOWS? WHAT DO YOU THINK OF THE LATEST ACCUSATIONS AGAINST JENELLE?
Basketball Wives hasn’t premiered yet, but the drama preceding the show has been happening for months! In the latest, the much maligned Royce Reed talks the upcoming season, the arguments, and her opinion of creator and producer Shaunie O’Neal! Oh, and in case your wondering if Royce has any interest in joining the popular crowd – rest assured; she doesn’t!
Royce warns that this season viewers will see a decidedly less dramatic side of her as she stays out of the pettiness and the chaos. “Sorry to bust your bubble, but I’m not really in a lot of the drama,” she tells Sister2Sister. We will see her focusing on her outside projects, though. “I’m really out there just trying to do my own thing career-wise,” she explains. “I have a career outside of on this show.”
As for conflicts, Royce says there are none with the new editions to the cast, Kesha Nichols and Kenya Bell, who she says are definitely getting along a lot better than season one non-factor Meeka Claxton!
“[Meeka] wanted to be cool with certain people that did not want to be cool with her and she pretty much got stabbed in the back like 10, 20, 30 times,” Royce reveals. “I tried to tell her. Tami [Roman] tried to tell her, and it was like in one ear and like the other. You see where she is now … I don’t have an issue with Meeka at all. We’ve actually talked. She’s apologized.” Royce adds that Meeka has since admitted she formed opinions on the ladies before actually getting to know them.
One person Royce hasn’t mended fences with is Shaunie, but don’t expect confrontations between the two. “I don’t film with her. We don’t like each other. I don’t know what her issue is with me. … She was making up lies about me that wasn’t true,” Royce insists.
Denying rumors that Shaunie acts as the puppeteer amongst the ladies, Royce is adamant that isn’t true. “She doesn’t pimp me, and I’m pretty sure y’all see she doesn’t pimp me. My thing is, she does not own the show.”
“She doesn’t make me do anything, say anything … Yeah, it brings in a check, but I refuse to sell my soul for a check,” Royce asserts. Despite some of her mistakes from last season, Royce stands by them and insists she makes her own decisions on the show. “Everybody makes mistakes, it’s just ours is in front of the world.”
Speaking of mistakes and drama, another person Royce will be ignoring this season is resident mean girl, Evelyn Lozada! Darn – who will Evelyn be flinging drinks at then? Oh, nevermind… she’ll find someone!
Speaking of Evelyn, she is denying recent rumors that her abs were drawn on for her recent Maxim photoshoot. “People thought my abs were sprayed on but they weren’t. They are all real!,” she insists to TooFab, while promoting her upcoming book, The Wives Association: The Inner Circle. Does Evelyn really expect people to believe she wrote a book?
Evelyn adds that the shoot was an “amazing experience” even though it was freezing. Is that why she looks upset in every shot? Oh, and she also wants you to buy her new make-up, E by Evelyn Lozada, which comes out this month. I’m sure we’ll be seeing a lot of it on the upcoming season. A photo of Evelyn’s Maxim shoot is below!
ARE YOU SURPRISED ROYCE MANAGED TO RETURN THIS SEASON GIVEN HER FIGHT WITH SHAUNIE? DO YOU BELIEVE SHE WILL STAY OUT OF THE DRAMA? ARE EVELYN’S ABS REAL – YES OR NO?!

Last week’s brutal segment of the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills reunion left several of the ladies reeling – particularly Lisa Vanderpump, who found herself to be under attack from supposed friend, Adrienne Maloof. After rumors claimed Adrienne had planned on conspiring against Lisa, the ladies spent the better part of the last week pretending that couldn’t be further from the truth.
Taking to her Bravo blog, Lisa claims she is still emotional over her experience at the reunion. Poor Lisa describes the experience as traumatic, stating she is “still at a loss for words,” after watching it again. “It certainly looked the way it felt and I have no words to describe it,” Lisa says.
Lisa is calling the other ladies out for their horrific high school behavior! “We have seen the tea party, seen game night, and I understand that is how these women roll,” she snips. “But it’s not OK to accuse somebody viciously or to sit there silently as you watch a friend who is under attack for hours. That speaks volumes, and I for one don’t want any part of it.” I wonder how Kyle Richards is going to explain her actions on that one!
“I am not going to say anymore,” Lisa writes. “It is what it is, and I will bounce back,” adding that she may have put too much faith in certain people. Lisa admits, “I would question my own judgment.” Ouch!
Adrienne is also speaking out about the reunion and she admits she may have crossed the line, but reminds us she is only human. “Over the last two years, you have seen me in some great moments and in some tough ones. The one thing that has always worked for me is to be straight up,” Adrienne explains in her Bravo blog. “It’s not always an easy choice to just lay things on the line, especially when you’re telling someone you care about that you feel hurt or vulnerable because of their actions.”
“Please remember you only see a fractional portion of our lives and our relationships. There were moments occurring behind the scenes as well that were causing hurt feelings amongst all of the ladies.”
Adrienne explains that she believed the issues between the ladies were not “irrevocable” so she decided confronting them head on would be the best way to find a resolution. Perhaps that’s where the planned attack rumor came from… “I felt that clearing the air was worth it, for all of us. This is an amazing group of women who are far better off enjoying each other’s company than fighting.”
“This was something that I considered to be a minor bump in the road, and I expected we’d move on from all of this once we talked about it,” Adrienne writes. “Ultimately, those who know me also know that resolution was always my goal.”
“What I have taken from all of this is that maybe my approach was too direct in this situation, and in the future there will be times when a softer approach is a better idea,” she admits.
And Adrienne is adamant that she cares about Lisa and hopes to move forward. “I value my friendship with Lisa, and I’m looking forward to moving on in a positive direction with all of my fellow ‘Wives — who I truly think are brilliant, talented, and beautiful.” I”m happy Adrienne so readily admitted she was wrong. Good for her.
Moving right along to media queen Kyle, who scarcely goes a day without talking to the press. Kyle appeared on Geraldo at Large last week with friend Faye Resnick where Geraldo asked her all about her experiences on RHOBH – including her opinion on Russell Armstrong‘s suicide.
Kyle again reiterated that the show is “not scripted” and admits she has misgivings and regrets associated with her decision to appear on reality TV.
Geraldo wondered if the ladies knew how bad Taylor Armstrong‘s marriage was, to which Kyle answered, “Yes.” Kyle explained the ladies pretended not to know and tried to ignore it in front of the cameras fearing how Russell would react if he was aware that Taylor was confiding in her friends about the abuse. Faye explains that Taylor told the ladies “over and over again” about the abuse and even admitted it in the bathroom of a restaurant!
Geraldo also asked if Kyle held Bravo responsible for Russell’s suicide. Kyle believes Russell’s financial issues are the reason he took his life. “No, you know, he was in such deep financial distress,” Kyle said. “Everybody was coming after him, he really got himself into a situation where he couldn’t hide anymore.”
“He owed a lot of money and he was really having a hard time staying afloat,” Kyle added. “Somebody who is abusive, obviously, has issues as it is to begin with.” Faye claims Taylor is still emotionally distraught and feels the loss of Russell “deeply.”
Finally, tonight marks the second episode of the three-part reunion and Brandi Glanville will go head-to-head with Taylor. Brandi speaking for most of America takes issue with some of Taylor’s behaviors throughout the season and following Russell’s suicide. She also readily admits that she told Lisa the other women talk about her, which leaves Adrienne speechless! A clip is below!
The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills Reunion Part Two airs tonight on Bravo at 9/10c.

Ever since dumping her husband and being abandoned by the press because of her shallow behavior, Kim Kardashian is at her wits end. It seems everywhere the former star turns, more trouble emerges!
In the latest, Life & Style is reporting (via their print edition) that Kim has hit rock bottom! Overheard complaining to friends while dining at Cipriani in NYC, Kim was reportedly whining about how no one loves her! “I’m so alone. I didn’t expect all of this. It’s devastating,” she was overheard saying.
“Kim was shoveling in the carbs,” an eyewitness at the restaurant describes. “From the moment she sat down, she was munching on breadsticks. The table ordered a plate of prosciutto and Kim wolfed down a plate of pasta as her main course. When she was done she leaned back and rubbed her stomach satisfied.” Uh oh… maybe Kim is hoping to be Weight Watchers’ next celebrity representative!
Kim’s depression has reportedly stemmed from the constant criticism over her divorce and the incredible media onslaught she has faced since dumping Kris Humphries on her reality show, Kourtney and Kim Take New York, after a mere three months of marriage.
Most upsetting for the desperate Kim is her worry that she will never find another man stupid enough to fall for her crap because of her treatment of Kris. Not to mention all the rumors about her sexcapades with various celebs. Kim fears that no one wants to date her. “Right now I don’t know anyone who wants to be Mr. Kim Kardashian. Not after what happened to Kris Humphries, no way!”
Due to the stress of constantly reading negative things about herself via GoogleAlert, Kim has turned to food and solitude! “Kim is becoming a really private person,” a source says. “She stays home all the time. It’s like she’s afraid to be in public.” Funny, because there’s still a ton of paparazzi photos of her floating around every week!
Additionally, now that Kim is less famous than in the months preceding her divorce, many of her friends have ditched her. Don’t worry – Jonathan Cheban has stuck around! Kim is trying to change though, y’all, and find new friends through her renewed interest in faith. The 31-year-old twice-divorced, sex tape star has been tweeting about attending church and has expressed an interest in starting a bible study group. You know what – I hope she does!
Poor Kris H had his heart put through the ringer and sadly had to relive the dilapidation of his marriage through so-called reality television. Unlike Kimmie, who is desperately wanting a new man, Kris still hasn’t moved on from his harrowing experience of being married to Kim.
According to TMZ, the New Jersey Nets star has no intention of dating anytime soon, as sources reveal he is focused exclusively on his career. Which, you know, involves actual talent and hard work – unlike his soon-to-be ex-wife’s! Kris hasn’t been on a single date since learning of his divorce through the media. Apparently, Kris is having an amazing season, so maybe Kim dumping him was a good thing!
Responding to all those rumors that she was rejected by Tim Tebow and secretly hooking up with Mark Sanchez; Kim claims none of them are true! Riiiiight. In fact, Kim has decided she is done with the NFL and wants to expand her horizons to other professional sports to find her next victim boyfriend. Sources tell TMZ, Kim’s break up with Reggie Bush was so traumatic she’s never looked at a football helmet the same way since. Really? Kimmie’s sources must be forgetting about her brief relationship with NFL player Miles Austin!
Not only that, Kim’s break up was so stressful she apparently is suing Old Navy! And speaking of that, Kim will be headed to court for the estimated $20 million dollar lawsuit she filed against Old Navy and its parent company The Gap; accusing them of intentionally using a look-alike in one of their ads to mislead the public to believe Kim endorsed the company.
According to E! News, a trial date has been set for April 23, 2013, by Federal Judge Dale S. Fischer. The trial is expected to last about a week. The Gap is arguing that their advertisement is protected under the First Amendment – they will also attempt to prove that Kim’s reputation is already so awful, people thinking she’s in an Old Navy ad might actually improve things! Being that Kim won’t be in front of a judge until 2013, she has a whole year to withdraw her frivolous lawsuit!
Moving right along, Kim’s TV nemesis Melissa Molinaro, the girl who was accused of the so-called Kimpersonation for her appearance in an Old Navy commercial singing and dancing (like anyone thinks Kim can sing or dance!), is speaking out about Kim’s lawsuit. Melissa calls Kim’s desperate attempt for more attention and money lawsuit “silly,” but admits she doesn’t really understand what it’s all about!
“To be honest, I really don’t even know what’s going on with it,” Melissa told Fox411. “No one’s really called me and told me.”
“I just think the whole thing is a little silly,” she adds, echoing what nearly everyone else thinks. “I mean, they held auditions in Miami, New York and L.A. to find this girl, and they wanted to find a Fergie from the Black Eyed Peas type of girl – I mean, (Kim’s) name never came up – it was not on their radar whatsoever.” Whoa! So you mean when Old Navy said they wanted someone who could sing and dance they didn’t immediately think of Kim?! You don’t say…
It is rumored that Melissa, along with the man she shared with Kim, Reggie, will be expected to take the stand in an attempt to prove Kim’s real reason for filing the suit was personal. “What’s crazy about that is I’ve known Reggie for going on three years now,” Melissa reveals. “People thought that it was just because of the commercial, but I mean, I’ve known him for years. It wasn’t anything new – not for us.”
Additionally, Melissa, who is working steadily in the entertainment business has just released a single and filmed a comedy spoof for the SyFy Network, has no intention of selling out Kim style – aka selling her body – for her fifteen minutes of fame. And while she’s not naming names about who exactly she means, it’s pretty obvious!
“Nothing happens overnight, especially if you do it my way – which is with morals,” Melissa snips. “There are people – and we all know them – that sell out and they’re just famous for being famous. I’m not where I want to be – yet – but it takes a long time, if you do it the right way. There are a lot of girls out there who have done things in their careers to be famous and to make it, and I’m not in it for the 15 minutes–I’m in it for the long haul.”
“I have my morals and my values in check and my family,” Melissa asserts. Touché Melissa. Touché.

ARE YOU SURPRISED THAT NO ONE WANTS TO DATE KIM? DO YOU BELIEVE KIM HAS SWORN OFF THE NFL? WAS MELISSA MOLINARO’S DISS JUSTIFIED?
The Atlanta Journal Constitution is reporting that a new VH1 spin-off is coming to town. The network, which was once known for music videos back when MTV first started straying from music, is now known for some fighting, catty women. Its hit Basketball Wives now features two different series in Miami and Los Angeles, as well as the spin-off Baseball Wives.
Now the same has happened for Love & Hip Hop, as the franchise is expanding to include some lovely ladies of Atlanta.
Season 2 of the hit show, which centers around women in the hip-hop industry, averaged close to 3 million viewers, with 3.15 million tuning in to watch the last episode. Those numbers compare to RHOA viewership. For VH1 to hit those kind of benchmarks is huge for the network which is testing the waters with these bickering Betties.
The article cites, “Atlanta, of course, is known as a major town for hip hop. Several folks in the hip-hop/R&B world from Atlanta have already taken part in reality shows, including Keyshia Cole, Toni Braxton, Chilli, Monica, T.I. and Tiny and Kandi Burruss, to name a few. And if you go back a few years, there was Bobby Brown and Whitney Houston.”
Apparently, if you can’t sell your music, you need to be showcasing yourself on your own reality show, and it seems that Atlanta is the place to do it. In fact, TLC has already announced that its new reality show Preacher Wives will be filmed in the Georgia hot spot.
Casting for the Love & Hip Hop spin-off has not been finalized, though, it is being rumored that these ladies are in talks to join the cast – rapper Diamond, video model Summer Walker, rapper Rasheeda, and exotic dancer Gigi Maguire.
Meanwhile the reunion for the current season airs tonight at 8/7c on VH1. However, it’s being touted as more of a “special episode” than a reunion, seeing as several of the ladies couldn’t handle being in the same room with one another. I guess John Salley just doesn’t have the referee skills needed for this bunch!
Show producer Mona Scott Young revealed on twitter that they couldn’t film a reunion because some of the cast members wouldn’t be in the same room together. While it’s been rumored that those cast members are Chrissy Lampkinand Yandy Smith, sources are stating Chrissy is the lone one who refused to be in the same room as Yandy.
On tonight’s “special episode”–aptly titled “Reality Check”–Yandy speaks with producer (and her mentor) Mona Scott Young about the role she played on the show.
In the preview clip posted below, we find out it was Yandy’s nemesis Chrissy who originally wanted her on the show. That, however, changed as soon as Scott decided to make Yandy a regular on the show, much to the dismay of the soon to be Mrs. Jim Jones.
Explaining her decision to increase the camera time for Jim Jones’ former manager, Mona tells Yandy: “You were funny, you were charismatic, we wanted to see more of Yandy.“
This still doesn’t explain why Chrissy has so much rage towards Yandy. And it’s that rage that is causing the reunion to be nothing more than the ladies being interviewed separately. Where is the fun in that?
Of course, we know that even individually, the women can bring the drama as evident in the clip below, Chrissy is quick to remind Yandy, “B*tch, you on MY show!” Yikes! Once again Chrissy, you need a hobby! One that doesn’t involve Jim or bickering with the people in Jim’s life!
