Basket ball wives season 3 vs Love and Hip Hop

So I'm already suffering withdrawal symptoms from the end of Love and Hip Hop and going cold turkey like a crack whore living in a zero drug tolerance zone. Then suddenly I get this idea to watch Basketball Wives.

I'm thinking both Love and Hip Hop and Basketball Wives are reality shows, both have cat-fights and both are on VH1. Sadly that is where the difference ends. 

I loved Love and Hip Hop because there was something real going on. It was about real life. We know that because even Chrissy Lampkins screamed to Mona Scot  something like- 'I give you my life, I give you my personal business and I give you my shortcoming and said please Mona don't put me in this room with this bitch (Yandy Smith)'.

Even Emily Bustamaine was honest in her feeling about Fabolous. Kimbella, Olivia and the rest where quite real but Basketball Wives? There is nothing real about that show - those chicks live in a glass cages or golden gilted cages and think it's real life. It's a frigging fastasy land.

They are interesting to watch but really from a distance. It's like are looking in on exotic - in their case over-moneyed, botoxed and pampered black barbie dolls. It's like watching high school and can be interesting at times.

I've watched two shows and so far nothing is happening. Just some new chick called Meeka has rolled up. Then there is the non MF factor, b*itch! story. I do like Evelyn but still it's soooooooooooo high school.

I think in end real women can relate better to Love and Hip Hop and their stories. To be frank though I don't applaud Chrissy Lampkin's emotional outbusrst with her fists I respect what she says, the way she carries herself nad think overall she is graceful and elegant - it's only that pitt bull temper of hers that lets her side down.

As for basketball wives - I don't get it. I like their styles, the chat and intrigue but overall I still don't get it. Evelyn I do get in a way. But they all look the same. And Jennifer, what is going on there? Also there is no real story it's just a bunch of interviews and clips. Royce? Not sure about the dancers vs wives theme but if the girl is making some good money go girl. However I must say the girls have motivated me to watch my figure.  Let say rappers love bigger girls - athleletes like them fit!

Growing Up Hip Hop Episode 6 Season Finale: A Question for Romeo- The Virgin Queen Angela or sexy Kristinia 'The Missing Kardashian Sister' DeBarges.

To my surprise I found this was the season finale, and I think due the lacklustre performance and lack of promotion by any of the investors or stars it may not be commissioned for a second season. Frankly when I found out this was the final episode in the series I thought it was an anti climax. Why? Well the cliffhangers were Angela's stalker who no one really cares about, and also Romeo driving away to have a threesome probably fake with Kristinia 'The missing Kardashian sister' DeBarge and her friend Ashley.
Oh well let's starts with my observations of this show. Will I be watching it again? I don't know. They even seem to having a reunion.

Def Jam and Phat Farm Founder Uncle Russell Gives Angela Simmons A Piece of Mind The show kicks off with Angela Simmons sprawled out on her virgin white bedsheets when Uncle Russ gives her a call for an update on the stalker situation. She tells him she’s made contact with the stalker. 


Uncle Phat Farm Russ goes crazy and yell…

Basketball Wives season 5 - Episode 4: It's all about Evelyn missing wife-headpuncher Chad and Tami seeking drama over what Shaunie said to Tasha Marbury. Suzie Ketcham says jaw surgery was to correct assault on her jaw used as punching bag by some unnamed ex of hers

This was show all about Evelyn 'Will-I-go-back-to-Chad' Lozada and Tami 'I'll-punch-you-in-the-face' Roman.  It's got to be the most boring Basketball Wives I've watched.  And it was so boring so I'll just cover some points and in no particular order. I hope it makes sense in some way?

UPDATE: NOTE: Tami confirms in her blog that her mother died at Tami's home surrounded by her family - that is Tami and her two daugthers who were with her when she died.

Evelyn continues to whines about Chad Johnson Ochocinco


Evelyn goes on and on about Chad Johnson Ochocinco till at some point I start to feel sorry for the man. This is too bad because I can't believe that I feel sorry for Chad Johnson Ochocinco. Never thought I would say this. POOR CHAD. Seriously, Poor Chad Johnson Ochocinco. I really do feel for him because it's like an nightmare that will never end. For him and for us. Evelyn too because she has that horrible gash on her forehead. No …

R&B Divas LA season 1 episode 3: Kelly Price, Chante Moore, Lil’ Mo, Claudette Ortiz, Michel’le and Dawn Robinson all go to Vegas, Chante Moore is all about female empowerment and self-marrage, Dawn Robinson reveals more about her hurtful and abusive marrage also struggles to have a child,Lil Mo and Chante Moore save the day singing at Boardway in the Hood.

This show is pleasant, honest and easy to watch. I think they have go the balance right in this case because I can see people like Chante Moore, Lil Mo, Michel'le and to some extent Dawn Robinson not standing for any behind the scenes rubbish - however time will tell since it's still early days.
These women are hungry  in a different way to the ones in R&B Diva's Atlanta. With the exception of Claudette Ortiz- these are very cast full of strong women and know their worth! I say that because Claudette Ortiz is the youngest by a good few years.

So given that the foolery that is Basketball Balls Miami will be starting with Tami, Evelyn Lozada and Shaunie O'Neil soon this is a good cool down show.

Lil Mo, Dawn Robinson and Claudette Ortiz bond over  'All we have being through' discussions.

It kicks off with Lil Mo, Dawn Robinson and Claudette Ortiz all discussing the monologues. Yada, yada, yada they keep on talking.
