RECAP: VH1’s Season Premieres: Single Ladies + Basketball Wives



Last night Vh1 became a “Mother Lovin Factor” again in reality TV as they rolled out yet another season of Basketball Wives and a new show Single Ladies. On Basketball Wives they got right to it! From begining to end the show was filled with drama from the addition of the newest addition Meeka Claxton, wife of former NBA player Speedy Claxton. As we mentioned before, many of the ladies see her as a trouble maker and one with ill intentions. Royce, Jennifer and Evelyn are still far from squashing their beef. Tami is still at it with Evelyn and pissed because of the T-Shirts. She tried to smooth it over by saying the money was going to Tami’s charity however she felt that was Tacky and Disrepectul. I agree but it’s still funny as hell.

Single Ladies is” VH1′s new scripted “romantic comedy series” executive-produced by Queen Latifah. The series last night in a 2-hour episode starring Stacy Dash, Lisa Raye McCoy, and Charity Shea.

The premise: three women living in Atlanta, navigating tumultuous dating/sex lives with the tenacity of a Beyaki..I’m mean Beyonce single.

Stacy Dash’s character “Val” is dumped by her NBA boyfriend of (5) years within the first 10 minutes of the show. Her rebound reactions include throwing herself into her business (boutique owner/stylist), buying a new car, and having unprotected “different” sex with a random white boutique patron and her dusty, ex-boyfriend. That’s right, both in the same time frame. These action conclude witha false pregnancy alarm, Stacy’s saving grace was her acting in spite of the less than entertaining script, not to mention she is great to look at 😉

Lisa Raye’s character Diamond ”Kiesha” is a former/pt-time-when-the-money’s right video vixen, also hourly at Dash’s boutique (of course). Known for her sexual prowess and large ass, she juggles men like a circus act, but can’t stop stealing icy jewelry from video sets?!?? In the most confusing plotline, Lisa Raye is blackmailed by another “video vixen” played by Kim Porter (uhh.. yea that Kim Porter). Lukewarm plot

“April” (Charity Shea), the token white woman character is married to an affluent and doting Black man (of course) yet she is compelled to begin an affair with the Mayor of Atlanta, played by Common (this is when the show took off), Other than Common’s appearance, ima need a little more.com

  4. My thing is why do we have to act so ghetto and classless on these shows it just starting be a real bore I mean please maintain some self control and stop being so disrepecful one another for once. As for the show single ladies it is alright and I hope it does well nevertheless to bad it does not hold my interest and will not be watching it again at all.
