Girl, you can do better by yourself and we’re here to prove it. Here are a few celebrity women who deserve better than the men they’re with — seemingly just for the fame and fortune.

Rumors about Orlando Scandricks infidelity just keep coming. Should the Basketball Wives star cut her losses and take Chantel’s salty advice?

“Do something else. Write a book. I wrote a book at 14. Record an album. I recorded two. I would love to talk to her. I can tell her how to really run a business, you know? And we can pow-wow. I think she’ll walk away feeling inspired.”

Tanee Short

First (after rumors of infidelity and irreconcilable differences) Tanee and Columbus Short were getting a divorce. Now, word is that Tanee had a change of heart and decided to make it work. Did she do the math and decide to stay married to a man on a hit show?

Money can’t always make a relationship work. And if the marriage is broken, we vote that Tanee hit the road while she’s still young.

Joseline Hernandez

Joseline may have started her 15 minutes as Stevie J’s…protege, but we think she can do better.

Joseline should take some of Chantel’s advice and write a book, release a song, or even work at Wal-Mart if that job comes with a little more self respect.

Brittish Williams

“Basketball Wives LA” newbie Brittish Williams said on a recent episode of the reality show that she didn’t care if her fiancé Lorenzo Gordon cheated, as long as she didn’t catch him.

But we think Brittish should stop turning a blind eye and start looking for a one-woman man.

Amina Buddafly

We don’t know if Mr. Pankey has enough dough to qualify as a sugar daddy, but we think that Amina should leave him alone anyway — before she ends up in Tara’s place a few years down the line.


All of the College Women Using Sugar Daddies to Pay Their Tuition

Tuition is so high, that apparently these days college women are turning online to find sugar daddies to help them pay the bills. Sites like have raked in over 2 trillion collectively and women who use them earn between $1,000 and $3,000 a month.

We think the Obamas need to do something about rising college tuition so women can earn an education without selling their bodies or sinking into debt.

Eniko Parrish

Anyone who would talk about his wife and the mother of his kids the way Kevin Hart has is bad news. Eniko should head for the hills before Kev’s next comedy special is about her.

Amber Najm

When your husband steps out on the relationship,then tells the women of the world that a long leash is the only way to keep your husband faithful, it’s time to move on. T-Pain is far from the only fish in the sea.

Porsha Williams

Do you believe Porsha when she says that she’s not dating Teodoro Ngeuma Obiang Mangue?

We know Porsha’s rent is high, but surely things aren’t so bad that she has to date the son of an African dictator, who supposedly is Tamala Jones’ man anyway.

We think she should stick to making singles or another profession that would make Hosea Williams proud.

Kenya’s African Boyfriend

Can Kenya’s boyfriend please stand up? Now even Walter Jackson is clowning her “invisible” African prince and we know that’s her last straw.

If he’s really worth Kenya’s time, he should at least pop up behind the scenes so the rumor mill can shut up.

Tae Heckard

Have you peeped Joe Budden’s Twitter feed lately? He’s been sweating Tae Heckard hard. And we just want to take this pre-emptive moment to say “run girl”! We’ve seen Love and Hip Hop and it’s not going to end well.

Brandi Maxiell

Uh oh Brandi, that’s not a good sign. Sundry might just be being messy, but it’s hard to make up rumors about a faithful man. Maybe Brandi should move on to independent womanhood, or a man who comes without side chick rumors that pop up on Twitter.

Cyn Santana

Not all sugar daddies are dudes. On Love and Hip Hop, Erica Mena is clearly using Cyn Santana for a plot line. We think Cyn should hurry up and move on before Rich moves in.

Apollo Nida

And not all sugar babies are women. Is it just us or does Phaedra sometimes treat Apollo like the hired help? We think this brother could aspire to be more than just a rent boy if he applied himself…if both of those two manage to stay out of jail, that is.

    I’ve always heard that flies are attracted to poop. Articles like this miss one major point: a relationship takes two people, toxic or not. At what point in time do with stop solely blaming the ain’t chit men for flying to steamy piles of poo? This archaic mentality is archaic.

  • Incluuding Kevin Hart’s gf on here really rubbed me the wrong way. Kevin is an entertainer. A comedian. Thats what comedians do; poke fun at their life or someone elses. I don’t think Eniko should run away because Kevin talks about his ex wife. His ex wife just got a reality show, where shes going to be talking about him! Kevin and Eniko look happy together. Leave them alone.

    • kiki j

      My sentiments exactly

  • CC

    Must be the money

  • GuestwithacapG

    No Caucasians on the list?

  • Sheenat3

    I do not know who the majority of the people on this list are and plan on keeping it that way.

  • Jayde da Blade

    well crazy is as crazy does.

  • FeelsGood

    This has to be the dumbest, most misleading article that I have ever read before in my life.

    I’m about done with yall MN

  • Trisha_B

    Why use the term “sugar daddy?” Like it doesn’t even fit the majority on the list? You got married couples on here that were w/ these men before the fame & money. Why can’t some of the women actually really care about these men? Like Draya & Orlando couldn’t just really love each other? All that is said about him are just Rumors, no proof. People hate to see others happy so they’ll make up anything just to smile when your unhappy….like the purpose of putting Tae on here is? Lol this list was just unneccessery & messy.

    & Jackie’s daughter is a loony like her mother. Draya has her own business that is rather successful, what she taking advice from you for? All those books & albums that no one heard of is b/c daddy paid for it. Maybe she can learn something from Draya on how to make it on your own

    • divinnalafeme

      You said everything I was thinking.

      • ThaTruthful1

        I second that.

      • cryssi

        I second that as well.

        • leeleebaby

          I third that…I’ve never heard Jackie’s daughter hum let along sing or rap or whatever

  • Tee Elyse

    It’s obvious Jackie’s daughter is just as crazy as her. And Draya has a swim suit line, so I think she’s doing alright.

  • Patricia

    I wish these reality people would stop telling them to write a book. There are other people out there really has a story to tell. Where half of these people come from? The ones that are married and the husband cheat, sadly they are going to leave them because of the money and the lifestyle they are willing to put up with them cheating.
