RHOA star Claudia Jordan

Our favorite (and sometimes not so favorite) reality TV stars can’t get enough of the spotlight during their regularly scheduled time slots, so they take to social media to share even more of their lives with us. And we love them for it. Here’s a roundup of some of our favorite snapshots from this week. Enjoy. 

Above: Real Housewives of Atlanta newbie Claudia Jordan shared, “Happy Friday! LOL! OK I’ll admit this is totally a thirst trap post. Don’t judge me!”

Below you will find pictures from Caroline Manzo, Kendra WilkinsonStassi Schroeder, Khloe Kardashian, Lisa RinnaKenya Moore, and many more.

I’m not sure if I am scared or excited about the return of VH1′s Love & Hip Hop.  It’s no secret that many of the antics of the ladies on the show left me cringing with every recap, but there is going to be quite a shift in casting.  I don’t know if that’s a good thing or a bad thing!

Anyone who watched last season knew of the discord between Chrissy Lampkin and producer Mona-Scott Young.  Viewers wondered if a show without Chrissy, her now fiance Jim Jones, and everyone’s favorite, Jim’s mom (!!!), would even be a show at all.  Who wants to watch a program void of a mumbling Jim and a “pyhsicotic bitch”?  Not this gal.  I love me some Mama Jones!

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.

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 Lampkin and 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 YandyYou 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!

Finally, Olivia released a video for her new single ‘Walk Away,‘ and that is below!

ARE YOU EXCITED ABOUT THE LOVE & HIP HOP SPIN-OFF IN ATLANTA? WILL YOU BE WATCHING TONIGHT’S REUNION VERY SPECIAL EPISODE?

On this season of Love & Hip Hop, newbie Kimbella Vanderhee made anything but an under the radar entrance and she certainly left with quite an announcement as well.

In a recent interview with Necolebitchie.com, Kimbella opens up on her first season in the madness that is Love & Hip Hop. She discusses her infamous first episode, her tumultuous childhood, an aspiring singing career (no shocker there given the premise of the show) and how hard it is to be so darn nice. An excerpt of that interview is below.

So this is your first season on L&HH, what are your thoughts thus far?

Of course it wasn’t what I expected. I don’t think there was any way I really could’ve been prepared for it but I’m really happy. But I do wish I wasn’t as nice as I was. I wish I would’ve shown my more aggressive side.

Your more aggressive side? You’ve been involved in a few conflicts already…

Yes but that’s what I mean. People take my kindness for weakness. I don’t judge anybody. Basically people pre-judge me. And watching it, I realize I should’ve had my guard up with each individual. I’m not as nice as they made me seem. Anything that comes my way, I do not back down. I hold my own. I don’t care who you are, I’m gonna fight for who I am, take it or leave it. Some of the girls wanted to judge me and they didn’t know me and it’s pitiful.

Ok, let’s go back to your first episode. You came to a party thrown by Emily and sort of dropped a bomb that you’d previously been involved with Fabolous. Whose idea was it to tell her?

I came in there wanting to tell her, this was my second time seeing Emily [Bustamante]. I knew she knew, I’d heard that she knew. So I wanted to tell her and just get it out in the open before someone else brought it up. I wanted her to hear it from me. And the thing is, what they don’t show you is Emily came to me later and said, ‘Thank you for telling me because I saw your name in his phone and I was gonna ask you about it.’

I understand you wanting to tell her directly, but why then? Why at the party in front of everyone?

Because it didn’t matter where or when I told her. Everyone knew what this guy was doing to her. And even if I’d taken her to the bathroom, or pulled her aside, she still would’ve come back and told everybody at that table anyway.

So after the fight, Emily thanked you for telling her, what was the relationship between yourself and Chrissy?

Chrissy [Lampkin] wasn’t around. She stopped production for 3 weeks because she didn’t want to tape with me. So there was absolutely no relationship.

In [one] episode you allude to childhood abuse, can you elaborate on that?

Basically it was more neglect than anything. I had to raise myself and teach myself everything and some of the decisions I make as an adult are because of this. My mom was always off running after my dad, trying to make that relationship work. And it wasn’t healthy. My dad abused her. He had other children on her. So it was just an unhealthy situation all around.

What’s your relationship like with her now?

It’s hard. My mom is a unique individual. I want things to get better but it’s going to take time.

Where you want to go outside of the show?

I’m gonna launch my pop career, I sing. Not like Erica Mena. I can really sing. I’m also developing a line of watches. As well as a clothing line. And of course I’m doing my ‘Feel Pretty’ shirts which will be available on my website. My goal is to grow the brand. And eventually I’ll probably start an agency for upcoming models. I want to teach them the right way to handle their careers. You don’t just model for the rest of your life. I just want to educate women. We need unity, not jealously and to help one another. It’s such a struggle out here.

Is she lying and just making all of these allegations up?

Of course. I’ve never met her before. She’s straight lying. It’s jealousy, envy, maybe she wants to be my a friend. But I know one thing, a real woman – which obviously she’s not – wouldn’t approach the situation like that. We’ve never been friends. I don’t know this girl.

So who’s idea was it for you to confront her at her birthday party?

The show set up us going to her party. We did have this little twitter situation, which was real. But I didn’t understand how she was going back and forth so quickly. You came to Miami apologizing and now you’re still talking about me? The whole thing just doesn’t make sense. What is it you’re trying to do?

Would you do another season?

If the money’s right. I have two kids that I have to support. And now that I’m a little wiser about what this process is really like, I’m going to need a lot of things. So renegotiating my contract isn’t going to be easy. They’re going to have to come with it.

I know you’re genuinely cool with Yandy [Smith] but are you friends with any of your other cast mates in real life?

No, it’s hard for me to trust anybody. Especially after seeing the show now. Somaya’s cool but I don’t trust anybody. I thought during taping that Emily and I were cool. She used to call my phone whatever, like we were cool and then I see the show and see how she really was and how she was running back to Chrissy. But it’s cool. I get it. This was a front for Chrissy. So now I just worry about me. I’m cordial with Olivia. We don’t have any beef. I’m pretty chill. I don’t have hate, no jealousy, I don’t bring problems to the table. When I come into the room it’s always somebody else who has the problem.

That’s interesting. What do you think the general first impression of you is?

It could be different with each person. If it’s someone who’s insecure they’re gonna have a problem. I’m a pretty girl that walks in the room and holds it down for herself and if you’re insecure, then you’re gonna have a problem.

Anything else you want us to know?

I’m going to write a book and everything else I have to say will be in there.

Hmm… makes me wonder if she’ll be back next season if she is going to make some demands while negotiating her contract. I guess time will tell! While I certainly wasn’t surprised to hear that there is no love lost between Kimbella and Chrissy, it’s nice to know that not all of the friendships or fighting is staged for the small screen. The ever present absent Somaya Reece also opened up to Vh1.com, speaking about her friendship with Kimbella.

Somaya discusses how Kimbella started off on the wrong foot but was able to endear herself to viewers. She explains, “I think people also started to see that Kimbella really was trying, she really made an effort to make things right on the show.” Giving credit where credit is due, Somaya touts Erica for helping that transformation, recalling, “I told Kimbella don’t be mad, whatever this girl did just helped you.” However Somaya believes, “[E]ven if Erica would not have done all that, I think people would have seen the genuine in [Kimbella].”

Dishing on her friend’s pregnancy announcement, Somaya reveals, “Oh, I know everything. But I’d rather she speak about it. It’s not my business, but she’s happy about everything.” She continues, stating the show’s mantra, “Relationships are always weird when you’re in this business, so that episode with her talking about Juelz [Santana], I mean, she’s just a really sweet person but she’s strong, she’s tough. I just don’t wanna speak for her.”

No doubt both ladies will be doing plenty of talking at the upcoming reunion! And speaking of, below is a picture Somaya tweeted of herself during filming of the reunion. Glad to know VH1 didn’t edit her out of that!

Last night was the finale of Love & Hip Hop. Given all the drama of the past season, it was a relatively tame ending. Almost nap worthy. Of course, our friends at VH1 tied up all the story lines with a neat little bow, but let enough drama leak to insure another season. No matter what, the finale was not much more than…{yawn}.

Kimbella invites Yandy over to discuss her latest blow-up with Erica. Yandy is shocked — she thought the pair was fine, but Kimbella fills her in on Erica’s recent interview. Regardless, Kimbella has bigger fish to fry as Juelz has been arrested for an episode with a neighbor. Her heart breaks every time she gets an update from prison.

Just like that, the very dramatic sophomore season of Love & Hip Hop comes to an end tonight!

And on tonight’s finale, Kimbella Vanderhee will drop a bombshell when she reveals she is pregnant! Yes, Kimbella tells her parents on tonight’s finale that she and beau rapper Juelz Santana are expecting their second child together. Kimbella has a son from a previous relationship so this would make her third kid.

“We’re having a baby” says Kimbella to her mom, who appropriately responds with: ““I wish Juelz would put the ring on your finger already.” Well said mama! Or better yet, how about not getting knocked up again until he puts a ring on it!

Some are now speculating on whether or not Kimbella kept the baby as she has been spotted making club appearances around the country, not looking pregnant. It appears this finale was filmed 1 -2 months ago. We’ll let you be the judge with some recent photos of her below!

Also below are some revealing/sexy photos Kimbella took while pregnant with her first child with Juelz!

In other news, Olivia ruffled some feathers of the stars of Basketball Wives after she dissed their show in an interview with the NY Post.

While attempting to defend her show by stating it’s not just about fighting all the time (err has she seen the show?) Olivia inadvertently threw the Basketball Wives cast under the bus!

“In Basketball Wives, I thought they were always bickering about nothing. They didn’t really have anything else to talk about, everyone was just sitting around having drinks. In our show, there’s so much for everybody to gravitate to,” said Olivia in the interview.

Well Tami Roman didn’t take too kindly to Olivia’s words and let it be known via Twitter! “I’ve always supported Love/Hip Hop-didn’t think it was cool that @1andonlyOlivia dissed BBW in a recent interview. #nobueno… I just thought we’d all support each other-we’re all in the same game, maybe I was mistaken. Its cool tho,” tweeted Tami.

Olivia immediately started backpedaling, claiming her comments were not meant to be a diss. Olivia tweeted to Tami: “Nope!I said our story lines are diff because we are a hiphop based show and that u guys do dinner n drink scenes n we break glasses on our drink scenes why we have plastic cups now. would never call yall wack I been a fan of the show.”

Tami accepted Olivia’s apology but still questioned her intent with her comments. “My ace sent me the article… #imjussayin I’ve moved on but damn something don’t match up…,” tweeted Tami.

I’m with Tami on this as Olivia’s comments were obviously a diss, and she is now backpedaling. In the interview with The Post, Olivia also whined complained about the way she is edited on the show. “They make it seem like it’s such a struggle and like I need sympathy or something, and it bothers me to my core,” she said.

The Love & Hip Hop finale airs tonight on VH1 at 8/7c. A preview clip is below!

Last night was the next to the last episode of Love & Hip Hop. I don’t know about you, but I feel as if this season has flown by in a relatively boring string of similar-minded cat fights. Erica Mena and Kimbella Vanderhee are at each others’ throats yet again, Yandy Smith is desperate to find someone who finds her to be a totally innocent party in her smack down with Chrissy Lampkin and unprofessional e-mail to Jim Jones, and Olivia Longett keeps singing away. Emily Bustamante is still pining for Fab and Somaya Reece makes a rare appearance.

Olivia and Emily are discussing the fight between Yandy and Chrissy. Emily has Chrissy’s back while Olivia feels she stuck between two friends. Yandy joins the pair and Emily smugly sizes up Yandy. Yandy hopes that Emily will help show Chrissy her side of things, but no dice. Emily will leave that job for Olivia.
