Reality TV Shows We’ll Take and the Ones They Can Cancel

Here are the old and new series we’ll take and the others we’ll gladly leave.

T A K E

“Girlfriend Confidential”

This is Eva Marcille’s new show. Though we’re a little concerned about her over-the-top personality, we’re excited to see four working girls handling their business in the industry. They have their own money and they’re own careers, plus they’re friends in real life, not girls forced to hang around with each other for the cameras. There should definitely be less drama and more substance.

“La La’s Full Court Life”

Rather than watch pretend basketball wives, we'd rather watch a real one. La La puts all the gold-digging groupies to shame as a wife and mother with her own career and business ventures. We love that she’s so down to earth with her besties like Dice, Po, and Kelly Rowland. VH1 should consider making this an hour-long show.

“Styled By June”

We live for the Juniverse on Monday nights. June Ambrose keeps it classy when she’s working with her clients, we get a little insight into some of our favorite celebs’ style hang-ups and we pick up a few fashion tips along the way. What’s not to love?

“Hollywood Ex-Wives”

If it weren’t for Will Smith and Eddie Murphy’s ex-wives being on this new VH1 reality series, we might have to give it a pass. But, we are sort of curious to know what it was like being married to these two Blockbuster funnymen. The ladies, who are also friends in real life, say they’re out to prove that they are more than past trophy wives, and we could definitely use an example of that.

 

L E A V E

“Basketball Wives”

It's season 4, and all we’ve seen is Evelyn and Tami cuss every cast member out--upside down and sideways. Suzie’s irrelevant, Kenya and Kesha aren’t all that entertaining, Shaunie just observes, and Royce and Jen don’t add a whole lot without drama with Evelyn so there isn’t much else to see. If it comes down to watching 30 minutes of that every week, we’ll pass on that show too. As far as the LA cast, it was hard to get into those ladies to begin with, so we won’t miss a second season if there isn’t one.

“Love & Hip-Hop”

Without Chrissy and Emily B., this show just won’t be the same. When it comes to the Atlanta version of the show, no one knows who will star in it for sure, but we’re not too into any of the women rumored to appear so far. If Chrissy and Jim Jones’ spin-off gets the green light, and if by some miracle Fab and Em get their own show, we’ll gladly trade in Love & Hip-Hop to see these couples up close.

“Real Housewives of Atlanta”

Last season wasn’t that bad, but with two of the cast members already having their own spin-offs, it could be overkill seeing Kim and Kandi that much—plus we’re not sure we could take Marlo every week if she does end up replacing Sheree. This show really falls somewhere in limbo. We’ll definitely watch next season if there is one, but if there isn’t, we won't cry.

“Braxton Family Values”

It's a great show, Toni is making her exit. And with Tamar getting her own spin-off with Vince, there just isn’t much substance left after that. We definitely want to know what’s up with Trina and Towanda’s doomed marriages, but without all of the sisters there it just wouldn’t feel right.

“Queen of Strip”

We’re not sure how much truth there is to the rumor that VH1 is putting together a show on strippers at King of Diamonds in Miami, but just in case it is a thought, we want to go on record as saying we’d like the network to leave that idea where it currently resides—in their heads. This is a side of women we don’t need to see every week.

City Girls Get "Careless" In New Music Video

In honor of the one-year anniversary of their debut project Period, City Girls has dropped a music video for their song "Careless."

The video stars the rap duo, Yung Miami and J.T., the latter who is currently serving a two-year sentence in Tallahassee. The visual directed by Gabriel "Video God" Hart, features the two rap divas sporting their iced out Quality Control chains rapping in the streets of what appears to be Miami. Both Yung Miami and J.T. are donning the same outfits, distressed jean shorts-underwear, a cropped Miami jersey with a white turtleneck underneath and the classic Timberland boots.

City Girls are showing exactly what they're made of as they rap about "living life so careless," and "h**s [being] so mad it's evident" with an entourage of women behind them. The short clip is full of fun-filled energy as the hot rappers bounce from location to location. Whether they're in a hotel room sipping on some Hennessy, in a store copping a couple of things, they still manage to get their bars off.

The visual is a good representation of what fans can expect from the rap duo, even more so if they see them in concert. Most recently Yung Miami performed the girls' big hit, "Act Up" at Rolling Loud with the help of Lil' Yachty, their co-collaborator on the song. Next up for Yung Miami is the Hot 97 Summer Jam on June 2 at the MetLife Stadium in New Jersey.

Make sure to check out their music video above and stream Period in celebration of its one-year anniversary.

Blac Chyna Named As Suspect In Assault Against Hair Stylist

Well, this isn't the best way to celebrate your birthday.

Blac Chyna has reportedly got in trouble with the law again after a confrontation with her hair stylist. TMZ reports the Chyna and the employee who hasn't been unidentified, were at Chyna's home in San Fernando Valley, Calif. when they got into an argument over payment.

The police report alleges after the hair stylist attempted to collect her check from Chyna, the 31-year-old pulled out a knife. The hair dressed left and reportedly threw soda cans at Chyna's car. A source shared with the outlet that Chyna didn't have a weapon on her person but there were cans thrown at her car.

Because Chyna's six-year-old son King was present, there's a chance the L.A. County Dept. of Children and Family Services will get involved for a possible welfare check.

Chyna hasn't addressed the incident but will more than likely still have a nice birthday.

Queen Naija Responds To Backlash For Going Public About Plastic Surgery

Queen Najia's decision to be blunt about her plastic surgery was met with backlash when she was accused of normalizing the procedure for young women.

The singer-songwriter who is known for her bold personality and power vocals shared the video titled, "Revealing My New Body | One Week Post Op Tummy Tuck + BBL (Brazillian Buttlift)" on YouTube Friday (May 10). In a previous video, Naija vlogged her plans to get a tummy tuck while heading to the Billboard Music Awards where she was nominated for Top R&B Female Artist.

The singer previously went under the knife after the birth of her first child in 2017, leading to a case of bad fibrosis. "I'm really really happy about the results," she said. "I basically got a tummy tuck and I got my hernia repaired around my belly navel, it would puff out because of my loose skin. I had really really bad fibrosis from the smart lipo I got two years ago."

In her recap video, the singer seemed to be visibly happy with the results and additional unplanned surgery for the Brazilian Buttlift. "I'm just really really happy. I feel more confident with my body and being a mom with two kids and having two c-sections, and all the stuff going on with myself, I'm really happy," she said Friday. "I will not be getting any more surgery. I won't turn into one of those girls who gets lip fat added and all this stuff. I'm not touching my face. As yall know I got eye fillers and I'm never doing that again."

But her joy was quickly met with criticism after The Shade Room picked up a portion of the video on their Instagram page. Naija responded in jest. "Now if I would have kept it a secret, like a lot of other women who’ve had surgery.. everyone would have saying “Liar, did you get surgery, why you hiding it?” she said.  Lol, I tell the truth & it’s still an issue. Hilarious. Imma take my new booty and hide in a ditch."

#QueenNaija stepped into #TheShadeRoom to say she’s keeping it real about her surgery, period. 👀👀 (SWIPE)

A post shared by The Shade Room (@theshaderoom) on May 10, 2019 at 7:39pm PDT

The "Medicine" singer has been open with her journey to building her self-esteem and has shared why she decided to try surgery. "I do love myself but at the same time, you have to make your self happy," she said in 2017. "You don't have to look in the mirror and see what I see. At the end of the say, I'm the one who has to put up with my self-esteem. I tried to diet and workout but I didn't see any results in my stomach area [because of c-section]."

The topic of surgical enhancement with women of color has been a controversial topic, with many women dying for trying under the table procedures. Standards of beauty have continuously changed with social media and influencers holding relevance over the youth but the singer hasn't promoted the option to go under the knife to her fans.
