Basketball Wives executive producer Shaunie O’Neal is crossing over into fashion … again. The shoe hoarder and fashion lover has teamed up with jewelry designer Simone I. Smith to create the capsule collection, “Forever Shaunie.”

O’Neal gave us a sneak peak of the collection during a recent sit down, before she and Smith officially unveiled the collection.

“Simone I. Smith, LL Cool J’s other half,  has a beautiful jewelry line … and we’re working on a little project … coming very, very soon.” revealed O’Neal.

Now the line is available and the two friends couldn’t be more excited.

“Through our love and admiration for one another, we decided to create a special collection,”  explained Simone. “Each piece is inscribed with three powerful words that describes my friend – Loyal, Fabulous and Loving”.

Michael Rapaport Calls Himself The “MVP Of Talking Trash” Following Janet Jackson Controversy



Michael Rapaport came under fire earlier this month for slamming Janet Jackson Appreciation Day which was on Super Bowl Sunday. But now, he is speaking a slightly different tune.

On February 4th, as Janet fans used social media to praise the singer, Michael took to Twitter to do what he does best: Talk mess.

“Can anybody crying for Janet Jackson right now tell me the last Janet Jackson song that was popping,” he wrote. “Motherf*cka’s wanna make nothing something 24/7/365 & Super Bowl Sunday.”

Michael, however, is slightly backing down from his aggressive words. HipHollywood caught up with the actor during the premier of Shot In The Dark, to discuss not only his ability to talk “sh*t,” but being attacked by Black Twitter.

“I love Janet Jackson, respect Janet Jackson,” he told us exclusively. “The context of what I said is that Janet Jackson isn’t popping now like she was popping in the 80’s, 90’s. Doesn’t mean she’s not an icon.”

Rapaport, who is known to stir up on some drama with his Twitter antics, then added about being a sh*t talker: “I’m proud of the way I talk sh*t, I’m the MVP of talking trash. I can give it as good as I can take it.”
