We announced a few days ago that VH1′s top dating reality show, For The Love of Ray J would be returning for a second season. The reason given was allegedly due to the fact that the relationship between Ray J and Cocktail did not work out. Well we pretty much called this a lie, due to the fact that the relationship never had a chance.
Ray J had signed up for a 2nd season while the 1st season was still airing on VH1, thus never giving his relationship with Cocktail a chance to develop. Cocktail released a statement to Bossip pretty much echoing the same thing. It’s very obvious that she has some resentment towards Ray J in this statement.
An excerpt from the statement is below -
“Just like any other relationship we took it day by day. We would hang out, have fun, laugh, share stories, and watch TV. Over time as we got to know each other more and more he would tell me things and often times they would hurt my feelings. I guess the brutal truth about him not being exclusive with me and still ‘hooking up’ with girls made me realize that it wasn’t going to work. I hate feeling like I failed and let’s be real no woman likes to quit a relationship so I tried to stick it out. I wanted to be his only one not just his number one.
After awhile Ray eventually realized that I was truly genuine and sat me down to tell me that we were not going to work
out. Then the Season 2 bomb was dropped on me. What makes me mad is that I asked him if there was going to be a season 2 and he lied to my face. He sweet talked me both times I asked. Aside from that, the breaking point was when we went on tour. He didn’t come back to the room at night and I heard the whispers about him being in other rooms with girls. It made me mad because he knew he could be honest with me but he chose not to be. At this point, I emotionally checked out.”
Surprise, surprise! VH1 has now officially announced there will be a 2nd season of For the Love of Ray. This comes has no surprise as the first season was a big hit for VH1.
The sad part about this is that Cocktail, the winner of the first season, never stood a chance. A source close toRay J informed us months ago that a deal had been struck for a second season. The deal for the 2nd season was struck while the first season was still airing on VH1. I highly doubt Cocktail knew about this.
While I’m happy we get a second season of this show, I do find it quite sad that the people involved with these shows, Ray J included, have no problem playing with people’s emotions.
More information on the 2nd season and casting is below -
“4.2 million viewers tuned in to see Ray J pick his leading lady on the For the Love of Ray J finale episode. Cocktail was crowned the winner and all seemed great for the happy couple. We next saw them on the reunion episode where both let viewers know they were excited to see how their relationship would progress! Ray J thought he had found “the one” but unfortunately, things didn’t work out – and he’s now single again.
As viewers saw last season, dating a hip-hip star is a full-time job which includes red carpet events, the paparazzi and handling all the crazy fans. For Ray J, dating has never been an issue – it’s finding the perfect woman that can be harder than you think… especially when you’re a celebrity. Since things didn’t exactly work out with his last girlfriend, Ray J is back to give love a second chance. As R&B’s most eligible bachelor, Ray J is determined to find a woman he can settle down with.
VH1 is looking for women with confidence, personality and class that can handle the pressure of being with a superstar and turn Ray J into a one-woman man. Beginning today, viewers and fans will have the opportunity to submit themselves for consideration on For the Love of Ray J 2. Online users can log onto VH1’s For the Love of Ray J 2 casting site at www.rayjcasting.com.”
In an all new interview with VH1, Brittaney “Jasmineva” Starr talks about her time on Charm School. She talks about being ostracized, being empowered from porn, bathroom imprisonment and how she’s actually “a pretty normal person at home.”
Below are excepts from her new interview -
Your time on the show seemed tumultuous.
Yeah, it was OK. I was disappointed not to see Sharon Osbourne. I know how 51 Minds edits and the role they insist on making me play into, and I’d never have agreed to go on another show for them had I known the headmistress wasn’t going to be Sharon. I think she’s an amazing woman and I have the highest respect for her and her family.
But not Ricki Lake?
I have respect for Ricki, but I don’t follow her. Sharon’s the coolest. I was really excited to meet her. Ricki seemed nice until I saw the show and what she said about me, which wasn’t nice of her.
Are you talking about her comment about porn not being empowering?
No! She’d barely met me for five minutes and she called me a kook.
During your exit interview, though, you did admit to being “a little psycho.”
(Laughs) You know when I was wearing the pink DJ headphones and Stryker asked me about them? I replied that I wanted to represent that I was a DJ so the world would know what I did, since the show kept making me out as the crazy ex-porn star. So they of course edited that out and just showed my “wicka-wicka” dance, when I was emulating scratching records. Watching that, I totally laughed at myself. I thought it was funny how they edited all the silly stuff together. What’s life without laughter, right?
This season of Charm School 3 has been filled with some major drama. Evidently mixing the Rock of Love Busgirls with the Real Chance of Lovegirls was a bad idea, or perhaps a genius idea? Depends on who you ask.
Two girls – one from each show- ended up quiting during the last episode. In this new interview with VH1, Farrah talks about her reasons for quitting and defends her “ghetto” comments. Below are excerpts from her interview plus more pictures of Farrah below -
I didn’t really understand why you were getting so upset at the elimination that led to your dropping out.
I was so pissed, I was actually pacing back and forth. Whenever they were up there, the girls from Real Chance of Love were standing there acting like they were total angels, and that’s fine. When I do stuff that’s wrong, like locking Brittaney Starr in the bathroom, I try to act like an angel, too. But they were making little comments. I don’t remember what they were, but it was just pissing me off. They were that mad that one of the Real Chance of Love girls was up there. Two of the Rock of Love girls were up there. Hello? Two Rock of Love girls already got sent home. It was hard to stand there and listen to all their comments, and it was frustrating that Ricki couldn’t hear them.
So it was just comments that bothered you enough to want to leave?
I knew that as soon as one of the Real Chance of Love girls was sent home, the rest were going to explode, because that’s what they do. It was never-ending. They were yelling the whole time, and when I say “they,” I mean Bay Bay Bay, So Hood, Ki Ki, Risky, K.O and Brittaney Starr. All that yelling was hard to deal with. I had to drink a lot to tolerate it.
Did Ricki momentarily convince you to stay after that?
I felt sorry for Ricki at that point. I know she didn’t want us to leave, but I was thinking at that point that she didn’t know what she was getting herself into. Neither did we, and I’m sure the Real Chance of Love girls felt the same way, because they didn’t want to be around us, either. Ricki didn’t know what to do, and I felt sorry for her because she’s a really sweet person.
You definitely did seem more willing than most to bridge the gap between the shows. You reached out to So Hood after Marcia called her “So Ho.”
Yeah, I tried to talk to her and she was like, “Whatever.” I talked to Ki Ki on the bus on the way there. She was nice and I was nice to her. Bay Bay Bay and I had a really good conversation one time and she was really sweet. The Real Chance girls really didn’t do anything to me besides saying, “Kiss my black ass,” and setting Brittaney Starr up to say stuff to me. But they weren’t looking to be friends, I don’t think. I really regret leaving because I know once a few people left, the group would be smaller and everyone would blend together.

VH1 has announced today that Megan Hauserman, aka the reality show villian we all love to hate, will be getting her own dating show. The dating show which has just finished filming will be titled Megan Wants A Millionaire.
Megan has appeared on previous VH1 shows such as Rock of Love 2, I love Money, and Charm School. The show will be premiering on VH1 on August 2nd at 9/8c. More info about the new show below -
Blonde bombshell and “celebreality” vixen, Megan Hauserman is looking for love — but not with any average Joe. Megan has her eye, mind and heart set on one type of man…a millionaire! Unfortunately, Megan’s had her heart broken by Bret Michaels in Rock of Love 2 and lost out on the $250,000 check in I Love Money. But now she’s back with vengeance to find both love and money with the goal of becoming the ultimate trophy wife. This summer, Megan will put 18 millionaires to the test as they compete for her affection in Megan Wants a Millionaire, premiering Sunday, August 2, 2009.
Megan’s millionaire suitors will compete in challenges ranging from going head to head in a high roller Las Vegas tournament to shelling out money in a date auction. Whoever wins the challenge, will win a date with Megan. But, it won’t just be any date. The millionaires will be given the chance to “upgrade” their date. How about driving Megan to dinner in an Aston Martin, instead of an Escalade? Or why not take a helicopter ride to Catalina Island instead of the ferry? One by one, Megan will eliminate the guys who can’t shell out the dough, until the ultimate millionaire is left.
I am actually looking forward to this show and have been for a while. Love her or hate her, the chick is very entertaining. I was actually rooting for her on I love Money. More Megan Pictures After the Jump -
The last episode of VH1′sDaisy of Love ended with London aka Joshua Lee throwing in the towel, and leaving Daisy in tears. In a new interview with VH1, London talks about the reason he quit, his feelings for Daisy and answers on whether or not he regrets leaving the show. Below are excerpts from this interview -
During your exit interview, you said that you were 95 percent sure that leaving the show was the right thing to do. Looking at it now, did you make the right call?
Even now it’s hard to say. I won’t know that for a while. It’s still kinda fresh. I think it was the right call, but I definitely have some regrets.
What was the main factor that led you to your decision? Was it Daisy walking away as you were talking to her about your domestic situation?
Well, here’s the thing. That didn’t go down the way you saw it on TV. The show made it look like I was homeless. I moved down to Pennsylvania to take care of my dad’s bills and stuff, to help him out financially because he was in a bad spot. He had a really bad back, and they put him on pain pills. He got a addicted to pain pills because he was on them for so long, so he went to rehab to get off them. We had some problems, some stupid stuff happened and he decided to kick me out. I wasn’t homeless, I had places to stay and I was moving back to New York, anyway, because that’s where I was before I went to live with my dad. It wasn’t that I was homeless, I was just couch surfing because I had a week between getting kicked out of my dad’s house and going on the show. No big deal. It’s not how they made it look. So, we get in the limo after the date and Daisy says she’s cold, so I said, “Wear my jacket.” She says, “Ew, this smells like smoke! Gross!” OK, you smoke, too, Daisy. This is after she’s already given me an attitude. She’s like, “No! I’m gonna wear it!” She finally finds this sweater she was looking for, and she takes this girly sweater, throws it at me and says, “Here. You can wear that.” I was like, “F*** that.” That’s when I got pissed off. It’s like, if I do something stupid like pass out from drinking too much on national TV, I deserve to be the butt of a joke. But if I’m doing something nice, don’t try to make me a joke. I don’t care if it’s your show and we’re all here for you, if you’re going to make a joke out of me, I’m going to defend myself. I’m gonna say, “Screw this. It’s stupid.” There are plenty of things to make fun of me for besides offering you my jacket when I’m cold. That’s when I said, “This is bulls***, I want to go home.” I’m not going to let someone try to turn me into a chump.
So basically it came down to your feelings for Daisy not being strong enough to run the risk of looking like a chump on TV?
Kind of. It’s less about looking like a chump. It’s more like…it’s a TV show. It’s like if you go to a strip club and the stripper is telling you how much she likes you and if you fall for that and spend all your money, you’re an idiot. I just figured I’m not going to be a joke. I’m not going to sit there and be part of a TV show. I like to be real. If I can’t be myself, I get really weird, I flip out and I just want to get away.
What did you think of how destroyed she was by your decision?
I didn’t see any of that at the time, but watching it on TV made me sad. There was a connection between us and watching it made wonder if it was a bad decision to leave.
What about the alcohol thing? Do you have a handle on your drinking?
The thing about the first episode is I have an ear disease called Ménière’s. Sometimes my inner ear fills up with fluid and I hear distortion in my left ear when I sing. One of the symptoms of that is vertigo. I’d been having a problem with that after flying out to L.A., with the change in pressure and the stress and everything. I was drunk the first night, but that kinda kicked in and then it was over for me. I couldn’t stop spinning. It bothered me for the next few days in the house, too. I don’t drink that much. I tend to drink socially and being in the house was one big social experiment. I was drinking socially from morning till night, but when I’m not in that house, I’m not being social so I don’t always drink.
In all, was this a good experience for you?
It was probably one of the coolest things I’ve done in my life. But I don’t know if I would do it again, right now I’m glad I’m back in New York, playing with my band and working on my music.
Newyork is back! The new reality show, “Newyork Goes To Work” premiered on VH1 on May 4th. Tiffany Pollard alias “Newyork” is somewhat crazy but i guess that’s what keeps the viewers returning to VH1 wanting more. Intrestingly the show has received mixed reviews from viewers. Some have called it annoying while the die hard newyork fans love the show. But can you blame Tiffany Pollard for wanting to milk her fifteen minutes of fame?
So the whole premise of the show is that fans vote for the job of the week for Newyork. If she is able to complete the task successfully she earns $10,000 and failure to to succeed, she gets nothing.
This week, she was chosen to be a pig farmer and perform some nasty task including inseminating a pig. According to the farmers, she successful won the $10,000. Personally, this doesn’t interest me but i will keep watching and keep you all posted. Hopefully this show will get better but at the moment i am not feeling it!
Where is the drama that we enjoy and look forward to? What do you all think about the show? Can’t wait to read your comments.
