Monique From T.O Show Clears Up Evelyn Comment & Season 3

Monique From T.O Show Clears up Her Comment about Evelyn "Not Being a Factor," and also Details about Season 3 of the T.O show.

Why did you make the comments about Evelyn Lozada being a non-m*therfu#king factor?
Kita and I went to the Forbes Celebrity Entrepreneur Awards as the producers and creators of the T.O. Show. I did not go there with Evelyn on my mind, just to make that clear. While we were on the red carpet one reporter said she was happy to see The T.O. Show back for a third season and how we are the only show that shows two black women running a business in a positive light. When asked if I watch Basketball Wives I responded, “I support it.” I completely support Shaunie O’Neal’s movement and I am friendly with a lot of the girls on the show. The same reporter then mentions how I move in the same circle as Terrell and Chad and what do I think about Chad and Evelyn’s relationship. I said, “I don’t think one way or the other about their relationship. I don’t know Evelyn to get all up into it that way.” I stated, “what I do know is that Evelyn needs to slow down and stop portraying herself a certain way.” She asked and “how is that”, I said, “well sleeping with married men and pretending like the wife is a non-motherfucking factor is just so disrespectful, but what do you expect from her? On the show, she meets, greets, and sleeps, with a guy the same night, whether it’s the truth or not, it’s portrayed that way.”

What can we expect from season 3 of The T.O. Show?
Well ironically, we end up in Miami. Terrell has property there and he has a business there, so we go there and help him try to figure out what’s his next business move. In that, there comes a Miami lifestyle. There’s a lot of fun and games, a lot of ups and downs, there are highs and lows in this show. I try to play back a little bit, because people know that I am married and I have kids, and in the show, I end up missing them a lot because we move to Miami and live with Terrell. So it’s kind of like Three’s Company meets Jersey Shore, with a little bit more color. I would call Kita Chrissy — she is dating now. She’s getting her sex life and that game back on. Terrell is finding himself as he always is; jumping over hurdles and trying to excel with the T.O. brand as well as the man. So it’s going to be exciting.

Somaya On Love and Hip hop With the Urban Daily

According to an interview with Urban Daily, Somaya Reece talks about what is going on the 2ns season of Love and Hip Hop
Will there be a season 2 of Love and  Hip Hop and whats next for Somaya?

That’s what I heard.  They announced it.  I asked to put my music on there, I don’t know why they chose not to.  I don’t know what they’re doing.  I have no idea what’s going on with that to be honest with you.  If it was up to me, they never shed a positive light on me.  But controversy sells; these type of reality shows aren’t built on Kumbaya and rainbows and sorbet and cotton candy.
But I do wish they would have shown everything I’m doing.  I have my own tequila brand.  I have my own shoe line coming out.  I have my own accessories line coming out.  This is distributed across the world.  Why not show that instead of people trying to make me look like I’m not doing anything?  At the moment, I have my official mixtape (not the one you saw on the show), which will be dropping in June.  It’s called Rebel With A Cause.  I have a lot of wonderful collaborations on it.  Not too many though, because I don’t want people to think I can’t do music by myself.

Jennifer Giminez On Her transition from Sober House to Celeb Rehab

You might have seen her on Sober House, now Jennifer Giminez is the newest addition on Celebrity Rehab. 
"I came from Sober House which you know, I definitely went through it. In the sober house it was me against eight of them twenty-four hours a day. And what was interesting from my perspective was a) I was now in a treatment facility and in a closed environment with these people and b) that I was on a team. Unlike Sober House, it was kind of like me always with them and Dr. Drew and all the other counselors, but still it was a night and day difference. There are a lot of trauma survivors—you know a lot of these people are very traumatized with their life."

Celebrity Rehab's Dr. Drew & Jennifer Giminez on Episode 1

How do you think this season will be different from previous seasons?
Dr. Drew: There’s a lot more about relationships and co-dependency this time around. And a bit more conflict, they were a somewhat uncharacteristically just not quite as cohesive as previous groups have been, which is both good and bad. You know the group before were BFF’s after two days, and that’s not realistic either. With that most recent group before this, we were busy saying “Come on now, you guys have known each other for three days, this is ridiculous.” This group was more like, “Can’t we all just get along?” The biggest problem for me was Steven and Amy, that was the most disruptive relationship. The other ones tended to follow normal course.

About your breakdown with Steven coming, how much time did you have to let it sink in?
Jennifer Gimenez: I was coming in for my shift, and I was told probably about an hour or an hour and a half before Steven was coming in, so I was completely shocked. I knew everyone else who was coming in, but I didn’t know about Steven.

Celebrity Rehab's Jennifer Giminez Interview by Wetpaint

Jennifer is interviewed byt check out what she says about Celebrity rehab.

Wetpaint: Do you see a connection between reality TV fame and substance abuse?

Jennifer Gimenez: I do see that. On a show like Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, these women are under a lot of pressure. The problem comes with exploiting your life, with putting your life for the world to see, there’s a lot of pressure that comes with it. I really believe that if you don’t have a foundation, you’re going to get sucked into it. And I know a lot of people say, “Oh, Hollywood takes you down. That lifestyle takes you down.” But I don’t believe that lifestyle takes you down. I believe they take themselves down in that lifestyle. And that has been my experience being in the entertainment world. People say, “Hollywood takes you down, it’s a bad place.” That’s not a bad place, it’s me not having a foundation. It’s me putting pressures on myself — that takes me down. And it takes them down.

When you see some of the problems the Housewives go through, do you relate?

I do relate. I think that’s what is so fascinating about reality TV is that we’re watching this and we’re watching a record of our life, though it might not be the exact same thing, but we do relate. It’s human emotions that these women are experiencing and it’s really sad. Like, you watch Taylor [Armstrong] and it’s like, “Wow, she’s so sick!” You have compassion for these people, and I can relate to just trying to find and establish who I am. These women are just trying to uncover who they are in some sense.

We’re not sure exactly what Taylor Armstrong sought therapy for, but she does seem to be having a really hard time. What advice would you give her?

I believe that she needs more than therapy, and that she could break the cycle so her children wouldn’t have to see this. There’s learning to cope with living life. A therapist can do so much, but working with another person who has gone through what she’s going through can definitely help. No matter what — you don’t drink, or pop pills, or do drugs — if she’s in a bad situation, she can get out of it.

Do you see anything in common with some of the Housewives and some of the people you’ve treated?

Oh, I’ve definitely seen a lot of commonality there with the women and the patients that we’ve had on Celebrity Rehab. People tend to suffer from addictions that may not be alcohol or drugs — the addiction to fame, the addiction to more, more, more. “I need more money. I need more fame. I need more clothes. I need more gambling.” It’s that desire to keep going and not being able to stop. I’ve seen that and there’s a lot of people like that on our show as well.

Of the latest group of celebs on Celebrity Rehab, was there anyone you most identified with?

I identified with everyone in some sense on the show. I got very close with Dwight “Doc” Gooding. That guilt and remorse, and him being a drug addict and alcoholic. I related to the fact he had so much shame. See, that’s why people keep relapsing. They jump into alcoholism, not that they want to but they get that pain and that guilt that they’re carrying, and that weight on their shoulders. It’s about being able to handle life on life’s terms. I also had a lot of compassion for Michael Lohan. He’s a good guy underneath all that all that stuff that carries him and gives him that pain. And Bai Ling. She’s an eccentric, free spirited girl. I related a lot to her. I really adored her.

Speaking of Michael Lohan. He needed rehab, and he says his daughter Lindsay really needs it. Does addiction run in the family?

The disease of alcohol and drug addiction is a gene and you inherit it. I don’t think Lindsay has to look so far down the tree line to find out who it is, and Michael’s been very public about it. That’s how it really happens. I think that they’ve separated themselves so much, but yet both Michael and her are both sharing this disease. It’s something that they’re both going through. They’ve suffered so much.

If substance abuse is a gene that runs in the family, what are the chances that Kim Richards’ kids will face those kinds of problems as they get older?

It doesn’t necessarily mean it will happen with [an addict’s] children. It may not be the mom or dad. It could be their great aunt, great grandpa, their third cousin. It could skip a generation or so. The thing is that Kim has an opportunity to get better and break the cycle. And what the whole thing about alcoholism and drug addiction is, is that someone may be carrying the gene but they’re not exposed to it because they haven’t awakened the beast — in the sense of, they haven’t taken a drink or drug and they haven’t fallen from grace. It’s about learning to cope and having coping skills.

"I have absolutely nothing against basketball wives, the show "Basketball Wives," or anything like that. But I pride myself in being more than just a basketball wife. I understand that’s something that I am, but that’s not a title that I want to define me. I’d rather be known as a mom, a businesswoman, a producer, an actress, a TV host. I just felt like that didn’t fit who I was and where my career was trying to go.”

Vh1access Update Interview: Courtney (Tool Academy 3)

VH1access Update Interview: Courtney (Tool Academy 3)

What has Courtney been up to? The last we saw her was on Tool Academy 3 as one of two of the first female tools. I recently interviewed to see what she has been up to. Follow her on  
So it has been a year since we saw you on Tool Academy as one of the first female tools? How did you feel being on the show?
It is amazing how time flies. I can't believe it has been a year already, because some days it feels as though we just finished taping. I was one of the first female tools on the show and I made show history as the first ever lesbian or gay tool to be in the academy. Not to mention that I beat the "professional wrestler" tool at wrestling the first night in the house!! I was okay with showing the world that homosexual relationships have the same issues as a heterosexual couple.

I first had mix feelings about being on the show because I had not come out to my whole family yet, and I knew this was going to "out" me. I loved doing the show though, because I did meet some truly amazing people that I probably would have never met otherwise. I also ended up learning a lot about myself that I hadn't completely let myself learn. I found inner strength, as well as the ability to show my emotions and vunerabilities. It was a grueling process. Most of you out there probably think it was a walk in the park and just anyone can do it, but let me tell you it is not what it seems. It is a mixture of everything thrown into one big pot and you either go through the process or you wimp out like Chaysn did the first night and bail. I would love to do another show. I would never change my experience on the show for anything.

How was your experience on the show?
My experience on the show was interesting and ever changing. I remember when we first arrived in Mexico and all met each other. Of course we all sized the other up and then started making alliances. The other tools didn't know how to take me at first... should we be threatened by her as an alpha like us, or should we worry that she will try to go after girls we are going after, or go after our girlfriends after finding out we were really on Tool Academy. They looked at me as if I was my own foreign species and just didn't know what to do with me. They ended up treating me like one of the boys, instead of the way they treated my girl Jennavecia, like a threat to them in temptaion.

I had commonalites with the guys, I liked to box, I chased straight women, still do haha. Once they decided I was one of the boys, the questions poured in like kids at story time. They wanted to know how lesbians work, oh the typical male fantasy. The house split slightly and it became the "west coast" tools out partied the "east coast" tools with a couple exceptions. The west coast tools were: myself, Jennavecia, Tommy, Shawn, but we had Angelo who was east coast and Daniel who was eastern that would stay up partying with us. The rest had to get their beauty sleep. We had fun playing beer pong, hanging out in the hot tub and just partying all night. I made friends with people I would have never met and we became each others support system through our couples therapy. My relationship was hard, because not only did I have an upset girlfriend, the other tools girlfriends couldn't believe me, as a woman could treat another woman like that. I was expected to be more emotional and understanding. I had serious moments of anger where things went flying across the room, or the punching bag we had outside had my fists laying into it.

Through all of the fighting, healing and laughing, I loved doing the show. It was an experience I will never in my life forget, and I hope one day to be in front of the camera again. This time though I won't be going through therapy!! I want to do a show that challenges me physically or that shows my complete personality. It was overall a fun experience, that people still stop me and ask me about, and fans still make me smile when they see me out and stop me. It was because of my fans and because of my haters that I have become the person I currently am, and I thank each and everyone!

What was your most favorite session with Trina and challenge?
Are you crazy asking me if I had a favorite session in therapy?! My favorite therapy with Trina was modesty, because we had to draw pictures of ourself, however it was that we viewed us. I was the first person Trina called up in therapy and I had to show my horrible drawing to everyone and she broke it down. That therapy of just myself lasted an extremely long time. The reason it is my favorite is because it broke down walls that would not have otherwise been broken. She would not let me run from dealing with my feelings about myself and my insecurities, like I use to do. I laid it all out in front of people I barely knew and for viewers that I have never met. I felt like a huge weight was finally lifted off of my shoulders and in that moment when I sat down next to Cheron I felt safe and that it was okay to be vunerable. It was believe it or not a huge break through in my life right there with good ol' Trina.

My favorite challenge on the other hand was not the modesty focus group, I hated that with a passion. It was believe it or not the challenge that played a part in my elimination from the show. It was the appreciation challenge. I loved it because we were able to make dinner for our partner that had meaning behind it, and I love to cook and I knew the perfect dish to make that had meaning. I made chicken marsala over a bead of wild rice, with asparagus and salad with her favorite wine. It was the first dinner I had ever made for her after we started dating, and I was a huge romantic (still am lol) and I knew that she would know as soon as she saw it why I made that. We all sat down like one big Italian family, explained our dishes and why we made them and then ate and enjoyed great conversation. We all talked as a big group and it wasn't just couples sectioned off, it was as family. After dinner all the tools put together a song and dance for the partners about appreciating them and how we first met. We all had a great time and laughed and forgot about all the troubles in our relationship. Granted I was eliminated that night because they said I was trying to hold Cheron too much, but I know I shouldn't have been eliminated that night, because it was only for a minute and I backed off. You have to understand when you are use to living with someone and seeing them on a daily basis, and then put under the circumstances we were, all I wanted to do was hug, kiss and love her, because I knew I was going to sleep alone. Overall though I would not change that night at all.

When you were eliminated, Cheron decided to leave without you. What happened after that?
I will never forget when I was eliminated, my heart sunk. I knew I didn't deserve to go then, but it was what it was. I knew also that Cheron was going to leave me, because the first day of the academy she said if I didn't make it through the program she was going to leave me, because I had to prove to her that I would change. I cried, it was horrible, because I wasn't ready for it to be over. I loved the woman and I knew it was over just like that, because the academy decided I hadn't changed enough and I made mistakes within my relationship. So for the first time in my life i was dumped, and of course it had to be on national television.

I didn't know what to expect going home, because we had a beautiful loft over looking the water together, but we were broken up. We both arrived home at seperate times and it was awkward at first because we hadn't been around people, or each other for a long period of time. I slept downstairs and she slept upstairs. We tried to make things work and tried to just go out and be the us we were before the show and it was too far gone. We had both learned so much about ourselfs that we both went in completely different directions. We became two people living in the same house, but not interacting with the other. It broke my heart and was one of the hardest things I had to do at the time, especially when her kids would come to visit and I had to play a new role for these two little kids I loved so much. We grew to basically hate the other and living together became exteremly unhealthy.

She moved out one weekend while I was gone with her now boyfriend (yes she went back to men). I was shattered when I came back to my empty house. I lost my best friend. I let myself get lost in drinking constantly and I went in a downward spiral for a period of time, between the break up, her leaving and the overwhelming amount of hate mail. I finally decided to end my life because I felt alone in the world, and I attempted suicide and clearly was unsuccessful, thank God! I woke up from the failed attempt and realized that God was telling me that I am here for greater reasons then I realized and from that day forward I have never looked back. I will never forget, because it was a pivotal point in my life, but it has made me who I am today and I will never go back to where I was. Even though the break up on national television killed me, I am thankful it happened, because who knows where the hell I would be today.

Were there any drama/fights on the show that we did not saw on TV?
I am sure there are plenty of fights that didn't get shown on TV. You go live in close quarters with 10 strangers and be put under extreme circumstances and see how long it takes you to freak out. I know that the cameras didn't catch my huge freak out because I snuck up stairs. It was after the fidelity therapy and I grabbed a bottle and from the hall, through the open doors and threw it as hard as I could and it slammed into the furthest wall away and then I started open had hitting the door and flipped out, I had to be calmed down.

We were all downstairs eating lunch and Jennavecia was asleep upstairs so Tommy, Daniel, Angelo and myself decided that we were going to quietly pick Jennavica's bed with her on it and move her into the hall. We had the bed lifted up and were about to walk into the hall when she woke up, she freaked out we dropped the bed and took off running. She specifically pointed me out because I was her friend and it was drama for a second. Jacob carried himself like his shit didn't stink and that caused drama. Kevin loved to create conspiracies about what was really going on and that would get all of us other tools worked up and it caused a lot of drama in the house. There was so much drama along with the fun that I have lost count.

So, the show has been over for a year now. What have you been doing since?
In the year since the taping of the show, I have gone from rock bottom, to better than I have ever been in life. I have created my own production company and have multiple projects in the works. I did a lot of marketing and still do. I love to meet people and marketing is a great way to do it. I moved back east for almost a year and met amazing people out there, and have since returned home to California. I work in medicine as well as on my production company.

I plan on writing a couple books and have already started on my first one. I had one serious relationship after the show which just recently ended, and now I am just happy living the single life. Since the show I have been traveling, doing meet and greets with fans, hosting parties and working in my main passion in life medicine, and recently production. I plan on doing more tv in front of the camera, but currently am staying behind the scenes. I have also returned to training for MMA and I have done boxing for charity. I try to fill my schedule with charity events. I love to do things that help. Other then that, I have been just enjoying my beach life with my family and close friends.

Thanks for this interview Courtney! Do you want to give a shoutout to anyone?
Thank you so much for interviewing me! I would love to give a shoutout to my family and best friends, they have seen me through my lowest lows, my highest highs and every where inbetween. I would be nothing without them. To all of my fans I thank you for your continued support over the year and hopefully years to come! You all are a huge part of my inspiration for change and I love every time I get to meet a fan. It is because of my family, friends, fans and because of my haters that I have become the person I currently am, and I thank each and everyone! To my haters thank you for telling me everything you don't like about me because you have given me the strength that I have today. I do wish all of you (haters included) much happiness and success in life.

Twitter Question

@TheTannerShow How did Tool Academy changed your life?
Tanner you have become like a baby brother to me! It changed my life because it forced me to come out to all of my family and truly love me for who I am. I am now me to its fullest and I no longer have to lead a double life. It forced me to face things I had shoved in the closet and it helped me find inner strength I never knew was there.
