There’s word that Jennifer Williams will return to VH1 with her own show produced by none other than Mona Scott-Young!

Who needs “Basketball Wives” when you’re getting your own show?

Since she won’t be on season 5 of “BBW,” Jenn revealed to VH1 that she’s in talks with Mona for a show of her own.

Ideally, she’d like it to focus on her life after “BBW” as she moves on from a broken marriage and continues to build her Lucid brand of cosmetics. But viewers may also get a glimpse into the relationship with her new boo.

But what might really pull in viewers is to see her and Evelyn Lozada repairing their friendship. That’s not likely to happen considering Jen remained mum on whether they’ve spent any more time together since making up at the season 4 reunion of “Basketball Wives.”

Bulls Fan attempts to steal LeBron James’ headband after Heat win streak ends

Wednesday was a frustrating night for LeBron James. His team’s 27-game winning streak ended in Chicago, his frustration with NBA officiating came to a head and, to top it all off, a fan tried to steal his headband.

The attempted theft came as the Heat were heading toward the visting locker room. James, who finished with a game-high 32 points, seven rebounds, three assists and four blocks, was minding his own business when a fan reached from the stands to pluck the headband straight off his head. Surprised, James recoiled and gave the fan a death stare.

Later, James vented to reporters about the physical treatment on the court in Chicago.

“I’m not sitting here crying about anything,” James said. “I play the game at a high level, I play with a lot of aggression, I understand that some of the plays are on the borderline of a basketball play or not. But sometimes, you know, I don’t know … it’s frustrating.”

As Dan Devine at Yahoo! Sports noted, James has given his headbands away in the past, so maybe this was simply a misunderstanding on the fan’s part. Either way, on this night, it wasn’t so great to be The King.

NBA says officials missed Kobe's foul on Rubio

The NBA announced Thursday that officials missed a foul on Kobe Bryant at the end of the Timberwolves-Lakers game won by Los Angeles 120-117 on Wednesday night.

"Video review by the league office confirmed that Kobe Bryant fouled Rubio while Rubio was in his shooting motion," the league said. "Rubio should have been awarded three free throws."

Ahead by three with 3.4 seconds left, Kobe Bryant missed a second free throw, opening the door for the Wolves

Ricky Rubio grabbed the rebound and headed for the 3-point line, letting fly a pretty good look. Kobe recovered to contest, and the ball came up woefully short. Rubio immediately protested. It was pretty clear that Kobe connected with Rubio's forearm.

Following the game, Kobe disagreed that it should've been called a foul.

"That's not a foul. They ain't calling that s---. I don't think I got him. That's a tough call to make," he said. "I just put my hand in. It's not like I went out and smacked him across the arm or anything."

Well, the NBA said you did. Not that it matters now, though. The Lakers still get the win regardless, one that they desperately needed. They lead Utah by one game for the eighth and final spot in the Western Conference.

Wade, Durant give each other nightmares in Gatorade ad

We're not the only ones whose hearts pound at the prospect of a Finals rematch between the Heat and Thunder. At least, that's what Gatorade will have you believe. In an outstanding new spot entitled "Fixation," Dwyane Wade and Kevin Durant give each other nightmares about being beaten, forcing them to train harder...while drinking plenty of Gatorade, obviously.

The ad is great on a number of levels, but the best part is Durant's dream of being blocked at the rim by Wade. Wade is one of the greatest shot-blocking guards in NBA history, if not the best, something that people forget as he's lost some of his explosiveness in recent years. Reminding us of that was a nice touch by Gatorade, and only makes a potential Finals rematch between these two teams even more exciting.
