Cute! By the way, Mrs. O wasn't just there to stand in the sun with Bey.  She was in her hometown to do some fab work.

REALITY FAB: VH1 Preps REALITY TAKEOVER -- "Basketball Wives", "Marrying The Game" & "T.I. & Tiny: The Family Hustle" Get Promo Pics & Fall Premiere Dates

Posted: 18 Jul 2013 07:02 AM PDT

 photo V_BWLA_SSN5_2_24_13_0633-RETOUCHED_covered.jpg

VH1 has announced the return of three of their most popular reality tv franchises, "Basketball Wives", "Marrying The Game" and "“T.I. & Tiny: The Family Hustle”. Get their start dates inside, lus new promo pics of the "BBW" cast....


 photo V_BWLA_SSN5_2_24_13_0584-RETOUCHED-2.jpg

One of reality tv's most controversial (and ratchet, even though we hear the cast tried to cut back on that this season) reality shows, "Basketball Wives" is back for a fifth season.  We will watch Evelyn Lozada’s first attempts at rebuilding her reputation (and fixing her life) post-Chad Ochocinco, and we'll also meet her friend, Tasha Marbury. Tasha will be bringing the drama and baggage from a 17-year scandalous marriage to former NBA player Stephon Marbury, now of the Beijing Ducks.

In addition to the return of Tami Roman, Suzie Ketcham and Shaunie O'Neal, the press release also touts the "return" of a notorious wife from seasons past, a girls' trip to London and a confrontation with a woman whose alleged relationship with a player puts one of the wives in an uncomfortable position.  We hope it's Draya Michele!  Season five is set to premiere August 19 at 10PM ET/PT.


Also coming in August....

 photo 053TIFFNEY_JAYCEON.jpg

Tiffney Cambridge and Jayceon Taylor are back for a new season of "Marrying The Game." If you're wondering what the show will focus on (since their wasn't an actual wedding), this season looks at their "relationship" since Tiffney called off the wedding and moved out of their home.

According to the press release, she has regained her "independence", but the struggle to build a strong relationship is still there. She still wants to get married....but not until Jayceon leaves “The Game” behind and rededicates himself to his family.  And based on his party life, we all know that didn't happen.  We'll also see them focus on co-parenting their two children, Cali Dream (2 years old) and King Justice (6 years old). “Marrying The Game” Season 2 premieres Monday, August 5 at 9:30pm.


And back on their hustle....

 photo V_TI_Family_Hustle_10_15_11_1057_RETOUCHED1.jpg

The King of The South, T.I., and wife Tiny are back with their six kids for "T.I. & Tiny: The Family Hustle” premiering on Monday, August 5th, 9PMET. This season, viewers will watch T.I. reveling in the success of Troubleman: Heavy is the Head and the premiere of Hollywood’s biggest summer comedy “Identity Thief.” Also, Tiny is busy at home taking care of business with the OMG Girlz! and working to develop a new girl group, French Kiss.

DO WE LOVE IT-NEW HAIR EDITION! Rihanna Goes Ice Gray (& Gets Food Thrown At Her At Concert) + Meagan Good Gets Bright In Purple

Posted: 18 Jul 2013 06:26 AM PDT

 photo 4c49d71eef6411e2b41c22000ae802cf_7_zpsbdea9299.jpg

Chicks love switching up their hair on 'em.  So two of the baddest did exactly that last night.  Check out Rihanna's new gray look and Meagan Good going purple inside...

Rih Rih had some downtime in between her week long of gigs at Manchester Arena, so she used it wisely.  She got her hair done and did a complete change up of the color.  She went from blonde to "ice gray" as she calls it.  And of course, she gave her fans a few peeks:

 photo ec490a00ef5511e2918122000a9f0a12_7_zps049e4bb7.jpg  photo f6da2336ef6011e2852722000a1fbd42_7_zps16607940.jpg

She said, "New color ice grey ish, call it #Brrr....Grey is the new black! Blondies, it's quiet for y'all! #brrr"

Meanwhile, at last night's Diamonds World Tour concert at Manchester Arena, while she was rocking out with "Rude Boy", a rude fan threw chips at her own stage.  So Rih had to pop off and call it an Epic Fail. 

“There’s a good crazy and there’s a bad crazy. When you throw shit up here, that’s an epic fail…I swear to god, cut that shit out. Really, chips? Chips though?”

Check the video below:



And over in L.A., Meagan Good showed off her new Rainbow Brite inspired look:

 photo e8e23070ef6a11e29af422000ae91202_7_zps0cfe53d7.jpg

Her stylists gave her long straight locks, dyed a bold purple.  Since she's no longer got a network show to look a certain way for, why not have a little fun with the hair, right?

Codeblack Films (the producers behind Kevin Hart:  Let Me Explain) have recently acquired the rights to Omar Tyree's Flyy Girl trilogy and plans to adapt the bestselling series for the big screen.

For those not familiar with the books, Flyy Girl amassed a cult following in the 90s and is a "...coming of age story that explores the journey of a young woman motivated by the material life who plunges into a fast-paced world of gratuitous sex, violence and heartbreak in an attempt to find herself and to assess her goals in life during the modern Hip-Hop era." The best-selling series won Omar an NACCP Image Award in 2001 best fiction writing for the trilogy's second book, "For the Love of Money”.

Omar spoke about the venture saying,

"I couldn't be happier to embark on this journey with Codeblack Films and Global Renaissance Entertainment Group. I have every confidence that my brand has found the perfect home with one of the most effective machines in Hollywood."

Codeblack is excited to have the film rights for these books which have been a staple in the African-American community for more than 20 years. We’re thrilled to have the chance to finally bring these stories to screen.”

Omar's books have been read by over 8 million people worldwide, and have grossed more than $30 million for publishing giant Simon & Schuster.

The Prancing Elites are an all-male cheerleading/dance troupe from Mobile, Alabama, and apparently, they're ready to go Hollywood.  On today's episode of Fox's new daytime talk show "The Real," Tamar, Tamera, Adrienne, Loni & Jeannie had the boys teach them how to do their popping, shaking and voguing.  Foolery ensued.  And we loved it.

Check out a peek of a video below:

And the co-hosts all went in on a few of the craziest tattoos on people that have been circulating then net.  So Adrienne fessed up about her Robert Kardashian tattoo on her butt.  The two have been broken up for years, and chick is still in the process of laser removal.  Good luck with that girl.

Check out her talking about how ratchet it is below:


Tune in for "The Real" DAILY on Fox.  Check here to see if/when it airs in your city.

P.S.  If the show gets fab ratings during this 4-week summer test, it gets picked up for a fell season and will air nationwide.

Both Halle and Olivier opted for simple yellow gold bands with rounded edges, as they tied the knot in front of 60 guests, on Saturday, at the Chateau des Conde, in the Burgundy countryside, an hour’s drive south of Paris.

She and Olivier exchanged vows with a civil ceremony followed by a religious one. They then joined guests for dinner, a fireworks display and dancing.

It was clearly a festive occasion as Halle (carrying her Straw Woven City Tote by Foley+Corinna) was still sporting a glittery temporary tattoo upon her arrival.  And Oliver was protective of a sleeping Nahla as photographers snapped pics of the new fam.  Congrats to the couple!

Legendary music icon Tina Turner married her longtime beau, music exec Erwin Bach in Switzerland a few days ago. According to municipal official Hannes Friess, Tina, who's 73-years-old, wed 57-year old Erwin in a ceremony on the banks of Lake Zurich in Kusnacht.  On July 21, the couple plans to celebrate their union with a Buddhist ceremony at their estate in Kusnacht with 120 expected guests.

Interesting.  Congrats!
