As you all know Memorial Day is a time of remembrance and gratitude for those who lost their lives serving our country. It is also the day that VH1 upped the stakes by hosting not just a reality wedding, but a live one at that! That’s right, folks! Yandy Smith and Mendeecees Harris of Love & Hip Hop fame tied the know last night in a live two-hour special.
Nina Parker and Stevie J. are hosting the festivities for the live wedding extravaganza. The guest list runs the gamut from legitimate reality star powerhouses and music moguls (Kandi Burruss being both) to the cast of Mob Wives. Karen Gravano is mildly flirting with Big Tigger who is emceeing the cocktail hour before the ceremony. The venue is complete with a red carpet for Joseline Hernandez and Rasheeda Frost, a coiffed and made-up Yandy joins Nina in an oversize robe to share the exasperating dress debacle and wrong shoe size shenanigans that have been plaguing the bridesmaids for the past twenty-four hours. So much for Yandy getting some R&R the night before her big day!
For the love of Ray J, I don’t know how I’m going to make it through another season of Love & Hip Hop: Hollywood! Thankfully, I won’t have to suffer through it without Brandi’s little brother. It was touch and go for a moment though. Phew!
The franchise has had its ups and downs, but L&HH: ATL seems to have the lock on the popularity and the rest of the cities seem to be flailing…although not for the lack of manufactured drama. However, Ray J isn’t a fan of creating craziness for ratings, and he’s been threatening to peace out from the series if his story line didn’t start focusing less on mayhem and more on his business pursuits.
Above, Kim shared, “Here is the 1st look of my February cover with Australian Vogue!!!!” Kim opened up about being a working mother (BWAHAHAHA) at the shoot. “Since I’ve become a mom I’ve figured out how to prioritize it the best I ever have,” she claimed. “It’s definitely harder but you figure it out. The biggest misconception about me is that I don’t work hard and that everything comes easy. I like to prove people wrong, and just live my life, and do what I do, and work hard. I’m proud of that.”
Our favorite reality TV stars cannot get enough of the spotlight during their regularly scheduled time slots, so they take to social media 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 this week. Enjoy!
Some reality TV stars were caught doing good deeds this week as they readied for Christmas. Others were spotted doing some last minute gift shopping. And others hit the red carpet for pre-holiday events.
Lisa Rinna, Harry Hamlin and their daughters attend the Los Angeles Mission Christmas Eve Event for skid row homeless at the Los Angeles Mission.
I mean, I don’t know if it’s healthy to have back-to-back nights of any VH1 reunion, but last night’s conclusion to Love & Hip Hop Hollywood left me feeling especially brain dead. Nana seems a bit spent after her twerking shenanigans. Mally Mal is on the stage, and he thinks Masika is a cool chick, but Berg is going to learn soon enough that she’s always after the next best thing. When I close my eyes, Mal’s voice belongs to someone who looks like he could be a character on The Big Bang Theory, not this big guy with the girlishly tweezed eyebrows. Berg warns Uncle Fester to stop talking about him, and Mally puts on his shades and takes off his jacket. It’s the equivalent of a Basketball Wife taking off her heels before going bat shiz cray. Mal and Masika argue over who was using who (whom?) to get on the show. Berg reminds Nikki that he’s the one who got her on the franchise. Masika then reveals that Mally Mal is still in contact with her.
Thankfully we move onto a more sane story line…and that says a lot given it revolves around Fizz, Moniece and Amanda. Moniece, as calm and composed as she is, is clearly certifiable…and stunningly gorgeous. I love that she’s the most well-spoken person on the show, as well as the craziest. As annoying Amanda tries to explain her behavior, Moniece spouts off a list of her amazing qualities and receives a round of applause from her co-stars. Game, set, match…Moniece. Mona revisits Amanda’s infidelities, and Amanda admits that she fell in love with someone else (the other man) after she broke up with Fizz. Fizz reminds her that they didn’t “break up,” he left her sarong-wearing azz. Dear VH1, please don’t make me watch Nikki trying to eat Fizz’ face again. They’re just friends, y’all. #fakerelationshipbymona
