A lot of you out there aren’t too keen on VH1′s latest reality TV show, “Hollywood Exes” because of the idea of these women using someone else’s fame (their ex-husbands’) to gain their own, but LisaRaye has a problem with it for a totally different reason. Her reasoning isn’t really new though because while all of the ladies, and even the show’s producers, have promised that this will be a wholesome, feel-good show, the preview for the entire series shown during the first episode shows there may be a ratchet moment akin to the mess we saw on “Basketball Wives” this season. And to that, LisaRaye said:
What she’s referring to is a scene where Prince’s ex gets a little crunk with Jose Canseco’s. Customarily, a drink is thrown (I’m pretty sure that’s a requirement in every VH1 cast member’s contract) and then it looks as though things get even more physical. When I saw that preview, I definitely had a similar reaction, like really, Mayte, and I was about to quickly blast her for being way too old for that until I found out she’s 38. I mean, clearly she’s still way too old to have that type of on-camera reaction with a real life friend (Hello Evelyn) but I didn’t realize she was the same age as the BBW crew so I guess birds of a feather throw down on TV together.
Right now, it’s not clear what all went down but I’m still sitting in the LisaRaye WTF camp. Although Jessica Canseco could probably use a swift pop in the mouth every now and then, let’s not do this—for a number of reasons.
What do you think about LisaRaye’s comment and “Hollywood Exes” so far?

(Women Entrepreneur) – In May’s column, I wrote about failure and how to turn it into an experience that propels you forward rather than paralyzes you. Part of that was about reframing–the ability to change how you view a situation and, thus, expand your options. I’m about a third of the way through The Happiness Project, a great read about a woman who spends one year testing out the tenets of happiness research on her own life. One of the author’s epiphanies is that her ability to frame a difficult situation differently– from a position of gratitude, abundance or positivity–greatly impacts her daily happiness and ability to cope.
(Fast Company) — Twitter‘s march to earn a dime or two from its millions of users and billions of tweets per month is picking up speed. Now we’ve learned that the plans for advertising include paid “promoted trends” among the more usual trending topics. We know Twitter’s in the process of maneuvering its advertising systems into position, but the discussion over at AllThingsD is the first we’ve heard of “promoted trends.”
