T.I. and Tiny have been living out their private marital issues in a rather public manner lately. At one point, things got so bad, that fans were unsure if the couple would make it. But it looks like the couple may have just been expreriencing a rough patch (as most marriages do from time to time) that they were able to work through.

If you’ve been watching the BET Awards along with us tonight, you may have caught a glimpse of the lovebirds looking super cozy in the audience tonight. Not to worry if you didn’t catch it though, Tiny made sure everyone knew that they were at the Nokia Theater as a couple tonight.

In the middle of the show, she shared a photo of herself seated with her hubby (above) along with a caption that reads:

Reality television is like a study in psychology.  There are some people who are extremely cognitive in making “good” TV, some who seem confused about what they signed up for, and others whose own actions confuse them and that’s when the finger pointing happens.  We’re all very aware of the possibilities of editing, or the use of frankenbites, but for some people, they seem completely oblivious to their own behavior and are dedicated to expressing how [insert fall person/editing device] is really to blame.  So let’s get to it:

Police officers were called to the Colorado home of Denver Nuggets player Ty Lawson and his pregnant reality TV star girlfriend Ashley King aka Ashley Pettiford, TMZ reports.

When authorities arrived on the scene, Ashley, who is most known for her role on Oxygen reality show Bad Girls Club, tearfully told officers that she and Ty got into a verbal disagreement after she overheard him on the phone speaking to another woman the night before. She reportedly went on to say that after the argument, she began packing her things to leave, but Ty stopped her by shoving her onto the bed. According to reports she reacted by throwing his phone and breaking it. In turn, he reportedly placed her phone under water.

Ashley, who is six months pregnant, went on to tell police that despite being shoved, she was sure that her baby was okay because she felt it moving around after the incident. Both Ashley and Ty were placed under arrest. Ashley was arrested for criminal mischief due to the damage she’d done to Ty’s phone. Ty was arrested for suspicion of domestic violence and criminal mischief for the damage he’d done to Ashley’s phone. They were both later released from jail on $1,000 bond.

It took a long time for television execs to hop on the reality show bandwagon after MTV debuted the format with The Real World in 1992 but nowadays, it seems that reality shows are the norm. Not only have reality shows provided a way for networks to deliver cheaper programming, but they have provided another level of exposure to those folks who may never have been heard before.

Case in point: before reality TV, mainstream audiences got their slangs and Black sayings from hip-hop music – the only medium where Black folks were able to wax unfiltered. But now, reality shows have helped Black folks once again expand their reach into popular culture. How? By allowing the Tamis, Evelyns, Tamars and Chrissys of the world to express themselves freely. Their creative way of words has etched their sayings onto the minds of many, and we’ve selected the funniest and most resonant sayings that have emerged from these reality television characters.

Reality TV Decoded: 10 Reality Stars Who Earn Millions

Reality television is a complicated business. Some shows get immensely popular and springboard everyday people into celebrity stardom, but that fast track to Hollywood isn’t for everyone. However, there are those lucky ones who manage to build their brands, or expand their existing empires, based on their participation in America’s guilty pleasures. While some reality stars make little to no money at all—the average is about $5,000 a month—personalities who appear on popular shows like The Real Housewives franchise can make $8,000 and up per episode, and millions of dollars beyond their TV presence alone. It’s reported that the Real Housewives of New York racked in $75,000 per episode last season, while the Kim Kardashian and her family recently signed a deal worth an estimated $40 million for three more seasons of Keeping Up with the Kardashians. With millions of dollars floating around in the “real worlds,”BlackEnterprise.com Decodes the financial gain of some of reality TV’s most notable personas. —Starrene Rhett Rocque

What We’ve Learned From Ratchet Reality TV

Ahhh, reality television. What did we do without it? I personally can’t imagine my life without the ratchetness of Love & Hip Hop, The Housewives of Every City, Basketball Wives, The Braxtons and… well, you get the gist. Although reality television offers a very orchestrated look into the lives of “average” folks and celebrities, there are some lessons to be learned from the trials and tribulations of cast members. Here’s what I learned personally:

"gloria and laura govan"
Blood Is Thicker Than Water Even Though Your Blood is Engaged in Foolery 
Remember when Gloria Govan was on the Miami cast of Basketball Wives and was part of the first reunion? We don’t even know how she even made the cut considering executive producer Shaunie O’Neal couldn’t stand her butt.  Gloria’s sister Laura slept with Shaq when he and Shaunie were still together. SMH.
When Shaunie confronted Gloria about her sister, Gloria refused to put any blame on her and wouldn’t even recognize having an affair as wrong. Wowe! I know you gotta have family’s back but I’m not sure if I would completely act like what my sibling was doing wasn’t questionable. But I guess when you’re shady yourself, you learn to put up a front 24/7.
