Reality TV Recap
Starter Wives Confidential is the next reality TV dramedy to hit the air from TLC. These Starter Wives are either the ex-wives or ex-girlfriends of celebrities. Hmmmm this sounds like Basketball Wives but maybe it's just us. **Shrugs Shoulders** Cast-mates include: Jose Harris (ex-fiance of Floyd Merriweather), Tashera Simmons (ex-wife of DMX), Cheryl Caruso (ex-wife of Phil Caruso), Monica Joseph-Taylor (ex-wife of Funkmaster Flex), Liza Morales (ex-girlfriend of Lamar Odom) and Zakia Baum (ex-girlfriend of Manio). We are wondering what is the modis operandi....if they are ex's then move on, what kinda of dirt are they hoping to expose? The drama premieres Tuesday, January 29th @ 9|8c on TLC.

This week I had an awesome time chatting it up with Tanesha from Girl With Curves. You might remember that I met her at the Rock Your Curves event last Fall and our footage never made it past the SD card. Well as luck would have it our paths crossed again and I got to talk with her about her blog, what great projects she has going on and her take on good clothing fit for a feature in Curvy Magazine. Log on to Curvy on Monday 1/28 for our interview.
