Our favorite reality TV stars can't get enough of the spotlight during their regularly scheduled time slots, so they take to Twitter to share even more of their daily lives with us. And we love them for it! Here's a roundup of some of our favorite photos from the Twitterverse this week! Enjoy!
Oh Laura Govan, please try to do everything you can to stay slightly relevant in light of the rumored cancelation of Basketball Wives: LA. The former reality star is posing for a photo shoot where she sets a wedding dress on fire in a symbolic protest regarding society's views on single women being less important than married women. Ohhhh, deep!
Of course, Laura is engaged to NBA player Gilbert Arenas who is the father of her four children, so she's kind of straddling the fence between single and married while trying to raise awareness about how flammable satin is women's roles.
With good comes bad, it seems! NeNe Leakes just announced her spinoffI Dream Of NeNe (which will premiere this fall). Unfortunately one of her sisters is continuing to court the media in an attempt to "expose" NeNe as a liar and user.
I'll bet Jackie Christie of VH1's Basketball Wives: L.A. is vying for a spin-off right about now. That said, I hope Draya Michele is churning out those teeny bikinis to pad her bank account. It seems that the two women, along with the other more forgettable cast members from BBW: L.A., will all need to find something to do with their time if this gossip is true…
Gloria Govan hinted about jumping ship a while ago, claiming to be working on other projects (Internet ballerina/ninja movies, I presume), and now it looks the rest of the women will following suit–whether they like it or not!
Uh oh. I hope this isn't a case of biting the hand that feeds you! Gloria Govan of Basketball Wives: LA hasn't exactly been loyal to the network who made her a reality star, and VH1 needs to take note about what the reality star is saying in the media. She's got way more important projects in the works, yall like that web series…!!
On season two of the show, Gloria pretty much alienated all of her cast mates except for sister Laura, and it's no secret that her husband Matt Barnes isn't a fan of his wife's involvement with the reality series. And speaking of her husband, Gloria didn't even inform the network when she eloped with Matt while the season was filming. That certainly couldn't have gone over well!
Le sads… tonight is the last night of 2012. Aaaahhh… it's been a good year for drama but a bad year for the explosive combo of fashion and reality TV! Last week we did a list of our best dressed reality stars, so it's only fair to honor the good and the bad.
Below is our list of the number one reality television fashion offenders. Oh, the list is long, quite long but since there are only twelve months in the year we decided to do one per month.
And we're back with the second dose of Basketball Wives LA Reunion madness. I don't know if you're considering it a Christmas miracle to get two recaps back to back or if you're wondering how naughty you must have been this year to deserve two helpings of this madness in one day. I hope it's the former. Let's check in with John Salley and his purple plaid, shall we?
We return with the ladies holding up their cards sharing who should exit stage left from the show next season. You have captivated me, John Salley, that is for sure! Laura and Jackie's duel is in full force, and I adore that John has finally stood up so that we could regale his attire in all it's Urkel glory. Who is styling these folks? Getting back to the situation at hand, the majority of the women are ready to get rid of the Sisters Govan and Bambi for next season. Most of the women believe that Gloria is too snooty for the show. Jackie calls out herself…just to play the martyr. She was concerned that most of the women would pick her (they didn't). Jackie says that even though no one may want her back, she'll be back regardless.
RT readers and Basketball Wives LA fans, please accept my sincerest apologies. I had no clue that the first half of the reunion was airing immediately after the finale, and for some reason my season pass didn't record it. I realize it's a week late, but I hope you enjoy the recap. The second half of the reunion will be posted later today.
John Salley introduces the newbies, and is it just me, or is he dressed like Willie Wonka? He welcomes Brooke Bailey and Bambi before touting the veterans, Gloria Govan, Laura Govan, Malaysia Pargo, Draya Michele…and of course, the lady who carried the season, Jackie Christie. John shares that this year the reunion will have some surprises and many more fan questions. Jackie is sporting her finest vinyl dominatrix attire. We revisit the beginning of the season when Malaysia was trying to get the girls on board with reconciling with Jackie. We all know how that went! Jackie reveals that she returned to prove that she wasn't the pot stirrer we saw last season. Uh huh.
Starting in with the viewer questions, John asks why Malaysia worked so hard to bring Jackie back into the group. Malaysia counters that she is an actual basketball wife (smack in the face of 90% of her co-stars), and her breasts on On Display, as Melissa Gorga would say. Another viewer wonders about Laura's evil behavior to Jackie, and Laura owns up to it. Her girls are also all out for us to see. I'm starting to notice that they all are…except for that random blonde chick…oh wait, that's Bambi. Laura and Jackie get into a back-and-forth about Laura's need for tit-for-tat. Insults are hurled and John Salley can't seem to bring the women back into the Chocolate Factory. VH1, you are usually so generous with the subtitles….what happened?
