VH1 has teamed up with the wives and girlfriends of some of the NBA’s most elite players to give the viewers a behind-the-scenes look at the glamorous life of a professional basketball player’s wife in VH1’s original series, Basketball Wives.  All of the women are not wives, but have had some form of a relationship with a professional basketball player. The series was developed by Shaunie O’Neal, who is currently in a nasty divorce w/ Shaquille O’Neal.
Meet the Cast. Royce Reed, ex-girlfriend of NBA star Dwight Howard. The two have a son together and have been in the news recently w/ drama. A few months ago, Royce was seen at a Ludacris & T.O. pool party, dancing a bit on the provacative side. In her defense, she is a cheerleader/dancer (if that helps).

Here’s the video of Royce in all her dance glory. [youtube=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xMoSaqiIftw]

Jennifer Williams (wife of Eric Williams).

Erikka Moxam isn’t married to an NBA player, nor does she seem to share w/ the public if she’s “dated” anyone in the league. Not sure how or why she was casted for the show, but I’m sure we shall find out why. 

Evelyn Lozada is the ex-fiance of former NBA star Antoine Walker. He was in the news last year for being broke and in seriously in debt. According to rumors, Evelyn threw Antoine the deuces when this was discovered. (Photo Credit)

Suzie Ketchem dated NBA player Michael Olowokandi for 10 years and the two have two children together. She’s tagged the “socialite” of the group and allegedly tries to befriend celebrities and loves the limelight.

Gloria Govan is the fiance of NBA star Matt Barnes who plays for Orlando Magic. Gloria and Matt have twin boys. The juice on her involves family. Her sister, Laura, is the fiancée of Gilbert Arenas. Laura allegedly had an affair with Shaq (this too was on lots of gossip sites). On the show, Shaunie actually addresses/asks Gloria about this. Guess we hafta tune in to see what happens.

Peep the Trailer and all it’s glory.

Premiers April 11 on VH1.

Lil Wayne has been assigned a pretty decent jail-gig @ Riker’s Island–keeping watch over suicidal inmates. According to my favorite Lil Wayne baby-mama, Toya, “Wayne has a job. They got him on suicide watch for other prisoners. He watches the crazy prisoners and makes sure they don’t kill themselves…He likes the job even though they don’t pay him much.” He’s also a “jailhouse blogger”, writing responses to fan mail on his Weezy Thanx You blog. For the full story. The Weezy brand lives on in a positive light in jail.

Shaq's Wife & Mistress BFF's?

Written by thejasminebrand in Uncategorized
Share on FacebookTweet about this on TwitterShare on Google+Pin on PinterestShare on LinkedIn

Are Shaq’s wife and mistress BFF’s now? Well, not exactly, but according to some exclusive info from RadarOnline, they have strategically joined forces to uncover damaging information about Shaq. Shaunie O’Neal, Shaq’s wife, filed for divorce in November, 2009. (Peep the back story here.) While building her case, she learned of Shaq’s alleged mistress, Vanessa Lopez. The kicker is that this affair was allegedly a 5 year relationship. According to this report, b/c Shaunie had a prenuptial agreement and needed to further build her case, she tried to convince Vanessa to come forward. “Shaunie wanted out of the marriage for a long time and because of her prenup she wanted to prove infidelity and mental abuse,” the source said. “That would give her more money.”

“Shaunie’s investigator found emails and voice mails that will hurt Shaq in the divorce,” the source said. Back in January 2010, Vanessa’s lawyer’s announced that she was suing Shaq alleging harassment, etc.

Here’s a clip of the press conference, where the lawyer goes into detail about the affair: [youtube=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=L8jcrmJt2ow]

Looks like both women now have the leverage that they need. In real life, my heart goes out to all parties. From the outside looking in, it’s entertaining, but I’m sure it’s not when involved.

LisaRaye Responds to Rumors in Interview

Written by thejasminebrand in Uncategorized
Share on FacebookTweet about this on TwitterShare on Google+Pin on PinterestShare on LinkedIn

 McCoy recently sat down with Jawn Murrary to address the rumors and questions that have been circulating in the entertainment world. Peep a few snippets from the interview:

Jawn Murray: I love that you usually address rumors and gossip head on.
 
LisaRaye: You have to take things and tackle them head on.  That’s part of the reason the show came to fruition. Divorce is hard and bad by itself, but when you are fighting the president who runs the country, that is something different. That’s next level. When I came back, people were like ‘LisaRaye, did he beat you? Did he bite you? Was it a little Mike Tyson going on over there?’ It was blown up, and it was Internet rumors and gossip and everything. They had made me an Internet tabloid favorite. I decided I was going to take an opportunity here and go ahead and do some business with the ‘show business.’

Jawn Murray: Well, let’s talk about some of the gossip stories out about you now. Are you dating NFL star Chad Ochocinco? There was video of you two out together recently.

LisaRaye: That’s a new one. We went to a milkshake place and had a milkshake there. 

Jawn Murray: So are you dating anyone right now?

LisaRaye: I have learned, and I plead the fifth like Beyonce did, and it’s so elegant. She said, ‘You guys can think what you want to about Jay-Z and I. You guys see us together; you see us doing business together. You see us doing music and whatever. Come up with your own assumption.’ And they did their own thing without letting everybody inside. I don’t think there was any way around my situation when I got married to Michael Misick, the premier of Turks and Caicos Islands, because with me being a celebrity and me being a first lady and the first African-American actress to be a first lady, that was huge not only for us, but for them as well. It was no way around me being able to do a hush-hush kind of thing. This time, when I do get ready to walk down that aisle or find that Prince Charming, I think I’m gonna do it a little bit different this time.

Jawn Murray: You and Vivica A. Fox were once best friends.  How did that relationship end?

LisaRaye: I’m not really sure because when you go through something the way that I have gone through it, you do look for your friends to be there for you, and then you start analyzing. It wasn’t until I did an interview that someone else brought to my attention when they said that they realized Vivica was very in the forefront in the beginning. She was in the wedding, in your special, posing for Jet as BFF’s. Where is Vivica now?  It didn’t dawn on me. I was like, ‘Whoa.  You know what? You’re right. I haven’t talked to her. It was because I was in the thick of mind that made me ………. realize, ‘Where is she?’ I think I feel the hurt not from just losing my friend, but the lack of support and the lack of her coming to me. Even if you’re friends, you take certain things to your grave. If you’re friends, you come and say, ‘Girl, I’m sorry. Either I’ve been going through it or what you have been going through has been too much for me or I don’t know how to help you.’ You would say something. You don’t rely on me to bring the olive branch because I don’t have it; you do. For me, it’s like will you ever be able to trust a person like that again?  Will you ever be able to say to yourself, ‘You are my friend, and we just kinda got in the midst of some craziness?’ I doubt that. And as real and ’bout-it, ’bout-it as both she and I are, I think that it should have been handled in more of an adult manner. Friends go through things, and you can go through things, but the trust factor is not there with me.

To read the full interview and hear her responses of alleged beef w/ Rocsi, Duane Martin, and her relationship w/ her ex, click here.

We can all check-out LisaRaye’s new reality show, The Real McCoy on TV One Thursday.

I don’t think that the paps have ever caught Beyonce dressed this demure. Perhaps, because it was Easter? She even has on flats. Fortunately, or unfortunately, there’s very little wrong that Bey can do in my eyes. (Photo Credit)
