DON BLEEK Partied It Up With Gloria & Laura Govan, Matt Barnes & Somaya Reece @ BBWLA Private Viewing Party

Laura Govan and Don Bleek

This past Monday (September 10), I was at work (Universal Republic Records) and I received a RSVP email for Laura and Gloria Govan’s ‘Basketball Wives L.A.’s Private Viewing Party’ at Suite 55 in Manhattan. I did not have enough time to make a quick run back home to change my clothes because I left the office a little after 6pm and the event started at 7pm. When I got there, the first person I ran into was Yakini, she is the owner of RealityTVFashion.Com. She’s such a sweetheart! We chatted the entire night. New York’s Power 105‘s on air personality Angela Yee hosted this invite only event which was sponsored by Vibe Vixen, Miss Jessie’s and Bartenura. Somaya Reece of Love & Hip Hop, Ariane Davis of Love & Hip Hop: Atlanta & NBA players Matt Barnes and Gilbert Arena were also in attendance. Celebs filled the V.I.P. area, popped bottles, and ate shrimps, hot wings and chicken as everyone watched season’s two premiere episode of Basketball Wives L.A. After the screening was over, Angela Yee hosted a Q&A segment, followed by the celebs in attendance going upstairs to do some press.  Guests received gift bags courtesy of Miss Jessie. I had a good time! Peep the pics below:

Damn She Is Fine: Somaya Reece Of ‘Love & Hip-Hop’ Spotted Out For The First Time Since Breast Reduction Surgery

A couple of weeks ago, I reported that Somaya Reece of Love & Hip-Hop had a breast reduction operation to minimize the 40E cup load she was hiding under her shirts. Her over-sized breast gave her back problems among other things. Somaya went through with the surgical procedure and  she is now fully recovered. Over this past weekend, the Latina beauty was spotted out for the first time since her breast reduction surgery. Reece walked the red carpet of the Tribeca Film Festival wearing a fitted black and white dress that showed off her sexy body. Any thoughts on her new look?

Love & Hip Hop: Somaya Reece Has A New Look & Speaks On Ending Beef With Chrissy And Olivia’s Stank Attitude

Season 2 of VH1‘s reality show Love & Hip-Hop final episode premiered earlier in the week. Somaya Reece was photo’d filming the reunion show and her new look got a lot of attention, especially on blogs. She worn a Roberto Cavalli stretch jersey dress paired with some Sergio Rossi electric blue pumps. Reece also credits an image consultant by the name of Derek Auguste for revamping her new image. In an interview with VH1 she spoke on her new look, ending beef with Chrissy, Olivia’s stank attitude, her new deal and much more. Below are some excerpts:

On Ending Beef with Chrissy:

“Basically Chrissy was like,’ forget the past, let’s move on, I don’t hate you, I’m over it.’ I think maybe after watching season one and after she saw that I wasn’t trying to be with her boyfriend and I was just working, I mean, you could tell at my showcase, she even said “Wow, you can’t get mad at somebody with that much ambition.” I almost feel like it’s a test.”

On Olivia’s Attitude:

“I even tried to reach out to Olivia and she’s stubborn…I’ll never try again, I did it once, she decided to be extremely arrogant and rude towards me without any reason. She’s the one who’s always been rude to me since season one, you didn’t really show it until season two, though. She always talks about me.”

On Her Career:

“I signed to a new talent agency, I have new management, and I’m starting to work on new television projects. I’m not ashamed of anything, and that’s why I think so many fans connect with me, I’ve never been ashamed to show my struggles and pain and everything without filter.”

On Her New Look:

“A lot more money in your bank account helps. I have a celebrity consultant I work with, a stylist, but in reality, on the show at one point I had lost like twelve pounds and now I’ve lost even more, so that’s part of it. But I also have a fabulous makeup artist, he does all the makeup for me, Emily and Kimbella. We decided I needed a new look for 2012. So we pow-wowed and decided I would go back to wearing my natural hair. My hair is naturally huge and curly, and I never wear it because it’s so much more maintenance than just straightening it. Then we decided to dye it. Then we just started to show off my new style and my weight loss and that more polished Somaya look”
