Late last week, some of our favorite celebs stepped out in New York City to celebrate the Season 3 premiere of Master of the Mix, hosted by Smirnoff Vodka and VH1. Master of the Mix, for those of you who don't know, is a VH1 reality show where DJs battle head-to-head to earn the title of Master of the Mix and a $250,000 grand prize. The premiere party took place at the newly reopened Marquee Nightclub in NYC where guests sipped on signature Smirnoff cocktails, including the Vinyl Collection, The Backspin, and more. The party kicked off with an official welcome from the show's host Amanda Seales, followed by a super trailer of the season. Master of the Mix judge DJ Mia Moretti hit the 1s and 2s accompanied by electric violinist Caitlin Moe, followed by DJ Kid Capri, also a judge on the show. Other celebs in attendence at the event were fashion designers Charlotte Ronson and Christian Siriano, as well as Corey Kennedy, Sway Calloway, and others. Check out the party pics below!
Tasha Marbury, wife of Stephon Marbury and star of Vh1's Basketball Wives, celebrated her birthday bash at No. 8 this past Friday night. In addition to celebrating her birthday, the charitable star decided to use the night to raise awareness for her charity, Faded Tears, which aides children who have experienced physical, mental or sexual abuse. Guests at the event included Daniel Earl Evans, Shaunie O'Neal, Evelyn Lozada and Suzie Ketcham, also from the show, as well as Jessica White, Leesa Rowland, Dr. Robert Grant, and more. Singers Madame Mayhem, Consuelo Vanderbilt Costin and Shea were in attendance and sang Happy Birthday to Tasha.
Emily B. took to her Twitter account to say...
“There will be a 3rd Season of #loveandhiphop NY but I will not be a cast member. The show was a great experience.. Thank you Mona and Stefan.”
A few moments later she hinted that there may be an other project in the works...
“But…. You won’t miss me for long ;) hmmm.. #Vh1”
On Love and HipHop, Emily was portrayed as the sad single mother who just wanted her baby father to step up and put her and their family first. From season one to season two we watched Emily grow into an independent lady with goals that didn’t revolve around her and rapper Fab’s relationship. Recently Fabolous and Emily have been spotted out together publicly acting like a real couple! So it looks like she finally may have gotten what she wanted.

Happy happy birthday! Who doesn't love Kristen Bell? Honestly?...Alright, maybe the Upper Eastsiders - whom she tends to nark on (anonymously) as resident Gossip Girl blogger - aren't her biggest fans. On the other hand, we at the Almost Famous blog love her character, since we have a lot in common ;)
Aside from her usual gig being the Carrie Bradshaw-esque narrator of the popular CW teen drama, Bell has been a familiar face both on television AND the silver screen. She made a huge impact on us with the cult TV hit Veronica Mars, as well as making us laugh in comedic roles in films such as Forgetting Sarah Marshall and You Again. She even changed it up as a dancer in Burlesque, in addition to a cameo apperance in this year's Scream 4.
Who doesn't love the Fourth of July? The amazing summer weather, the fun barbecues, quality time with loved ones, the FIREWORKS...it sure makes us proud to be a part of this country. Some celebs love it so much, they just wanna proclaim it through the clothes on their back!
Katy Perry - At the 2010 VH1 Divas Salute the Troops special, the "Teenage Dream" singer certainly looked the part in a pin-up girl outfit representing the American flag, which was only one of her many costume changes. In addition to this one, Katy also wore an army dress and a sparkly sailor dress, both accessorized with patriotic hats.
The Real Housewives of New Jersey ain't got nothing on how these women fight!
The showdown that was bound to happen finally reached its boiling point on last night's season finale (06/26/2011).
Mob Wives, which follows the lives of four women in Staten Island that are married or "born" into the mob lifestyle, has received mostly positive reception from viewers despite many activist groups slamming the VH1 reality show as a poor representation of the Italian-American community.
Eh, so what? Jersey Shore garnered the same type of criticism when it started yet "bada bing bada boom" the show is still on, isn't it? Trashy or not, their bank accounts are singing as more drinks are flinging.
