Kandi Burruss, Tamar Braxton, Evelyn Lozada & Chrissy Lampkin Are "ROLE MODELS" For VIBE's 2012 Sexy Issue

Whether they are good role models or bad ones, that's the title VIBE magazine gave these reality chicks.  For the June/July 2012 SEXY ISSUE, the most vocal, most feisty (which we guess makes them sexy to some) female reality stars are the cover subjects. 

 

Check out Kandi Burruss, Tamar Braxton, Evelyn Lozada & Chrissy Lampkin showing their sexy sides and talking ish (especially about Star Jones' petition to get negative fighting chicks off tv)....

After seeing these four have some TITilating play time behind the scenes of this shoot, you can guess they won't be scared to speak their minds about anything they're asked about.  Who needs tact anyway?

"Real Housewives of Atlanta" star Kandi, "Braxton Family Values" star Tamar, "Basketball Wives" star Evelyn and "Love & Hip Hop" former (allegedly she won't be returning) star Chrissy all got chummy for the sexy cover shoot.  No fighting, but lots of ish talking.  Especially with Chrissy calling out producers for being the cause of the fighting.  And Evelyn saying that nobody gives a f*ck about Star Jones.  WOMP.  Here are the highlights:

VIBE: Star Jones started a petition,lashing out against women and violence on reality TV. What’s your reaction?
Evelyn: [Bursts into laughter] I think she’s going to have to get a whole lot of names. Actually, I like the petition and I like the controversy because I’ve learned controversy is good. But I think she’s irrelevant. And she’s using our coattails to get relevant again. Nobody gives a fuck about her.

Do any of you see yourselves as role models?

Chrissy: I guess if somebody is afraid to speak their mind and wanna stand up for themselves, then yes. I want people to realize that they can have whatever they want. You can be respected in your relationship exactly the way you want to be. It’s up to you to go get it. Some of the stuff is a little heavy, but you’re not going to be exposed to crazy situations in life just by watching reality TV. You can go to the corner store and see crazy shit going on. You can go to school and see crazy shit.Don’t put it all on me.

Kandi: You would never imagine how many people come up to me on the street: “How could you be a part of that? It’s a disgrace to Black people.” I’m on a show called Real Housewives and I’m not married so I guess I represent single mothers out there who are handling their business and trying to take things to the next level. So when people say, “You shouldn’t be on the show, it’s like, “Well, who do you want to go on there? More people you don’t like?”

So you’re saying the producers orchestrated the violence?

Chrissy: Absolutely. They would go as far as telling the new girl, “Chrissy thinks she’s Queen Bee around here so we need you to step up because nobody here has a strong enough personality. We need you to shut it down.” They were feeding people this negative energy from the door. I have no reason to lie.

Check out the full cover story over at VIBE.  The issue hits stands next week.

*UPDATE* Evelyn tweeted that she and Star have privately discussed the matter and she apologized for her words against Star:

@StarJonesEsq know we've discussed my comments 2 @VibeMagazine privately, but want 2 publicly apologize 4 my words. Ur an amazing example!

I guess...

 

BONUS: Tamar Braxton & her sister and reality show co-star Trina Braxton will be making an appearance on the upcoming TV Land sitcom "The Soul Man," starring Cedric The Entertainer & Niecy Nash.  Check out our exclusive on-the-set shots of the fab twosome playing gospel darlings:

Mary J. Blige also stopped by the set to visit Ced.  "The Soul Man" premieres June 20th at 10p EST on TV Land.

Let's see evelyn call her out.

No wonder Vibe Magazine has

No wonder Vibe Magazine has downgraded in the quality and texture of their paper... Vibe has gone to the damn dogs!!.. Vibe puts Evelyn on the cover of their magazine. Evelyn is the biggest bully of all. (But a punk) But I bet you that Evelyn is more bark than her bite. She has to throw things at people. But I've never seen her throw up her hands. Evelyn can't use her hands because she can't fight. Everyone knows that all bullies are cowards and that's what Evelyn is, a damn coward!! Tamar is not a fighter or bully. She's the baby of her sisters and that's why she's so spoiled but I like Tamar. She's not violent at all. She met Vince through Toni. Chrissy speaks her mind and is intelligent but she should not be out there fighting. She's too old for that. Not a good look at all. What I do like about Chrissy is that she makes her man respect her. She doesn't take his shit and she speaks her mind. "If you don't stand for something you will fall for anything." Kandi is my girl! Kandi makes her own money and she's been famous since she was a teenager. Evelyn kisses Chad's ass. That would never be Chrissy. Chrissy stands up to her man. Chrissy puts her man right back in check. She does not allow him to disrespect her at all. Evelyn is a stupid ass moose face whore with a huge ass forehead. And... Have you ever noticed how she always wear a wrap around her ass when she's on the beach. She has never been seen in a two piece bikini without the wrap around on. I think she's hiding all that cellulite and stretch marks on her dimpled ass and thighs. Evelyn has been a pissed poor friend to Jennifer. I see why Jennifer didn't want to tell those bitches on the show about her lip gloss idea. Jennifer knew they would copy off her. And that's exactly what Evelyn did, she copied off of Jennifer. Evelyn is no role model! I think her daughter is even embarrassed of her. SMH...

So these chicks, I say chicks

So these chicks, I say chicks because they dont act like LADIES, let alone WOMEN, a bunch of fucking pumped up coons. Although whats rumored about her private life, kandi seems to have some sense on camera. But as much as I was team Chrissy I couldn't be on her team when all she was doing was acting like a hoodbooger. Tamar and Evelyn are a mess. Them two hoes need to go somewhere. how can they be role models? they don't do shit for anyone else but themselves. And how can a magazine even think to put these women as role models? Oh I get it these are HOemodels not role models. So to all the lil girls who look up to them, you can learn hot: to be a money hungry, laying on her back, classless whore. Good job vibe magazine. And people wonder why "our" magazines are going down the drain. Rap sucks, no real rappers. you are a good rapper if you have a stupid hook and now hoodboogers are role models.......... wtf is next

I love your message. Very

I love your message. Very very true and i PRAY VIBE reads this and understand we are going DOWN as black people and when we see how our children act we better not wonder why or ask where did this come from. Its right in your face. Just review the magazine cover and go do research on each woman on there. Im sorry but NO these women are NOT role models. smh sad sad sad how the world is turning... -(

kandi is making hella money

kandi is making hella money from the different things shes doing and shes doin it independently so if thats not a role model what is, ok shes selling sex toys....what does that have to do with being a role model. shes showing black women can be smart and business savvy without a man. Ya talk so much shit about reality shows but its jus entertainment. tune in or tune the fuck out. its not u thats on there so what does it matter to u. These girls arent dummies either. Their not jus sitting around their using the exploitation to branch out and make money using it. are there better ways of doing so yes but its their ways. so stop hatin

I like Kandi...I like

I like Kandi...I like Evelyn's shoes. The other two I have no knowledge of. But I can say this FOR certain if anybody is a role model the only person would be Kandi She is about the only one famous and not "infamously famous" amongst the bunch.

I knew as soon as I woke up

I knew as soon as I woke up this am that the blogs would be ablaze about this cover story. I read it last night and....my head just started to HURT! ugh!!! The way Evelyn was talking just irked the hell out of me! Girl, you are a damn BULLY! Get your sh*t together!! Tamar... Tamar. Tamar just sounded uneducated. WHY must this 35/36 y.o. woman have to talk like she never went to school let alone paid attention to wtf was going on in English class?? I will probably never like her nor am I watching her and Vince's spinoff. She and Evelyn know good and damn well nobody believes they love these men. They love their money! Yeah, I said it. I would like to thank Chrissy for telling the TRUTH! These producers are not slick and should be ashamed. We're tired of the senseless fighting for no damn reason. Why can't women have a show highlighting genuine friendships and what business they are involved in. All these reality shows on VH1 just irk me to no end. They all look alike! Kandi and Chrissy didn't say too much but when they did, it was so profound. I have always liked Kandi because she's not on any foolishness. She's about her check(S) and keeping it real at all times. I wish Chrissy would relax sometimes but I understand her plight with her situation with Jim and being a loyal friend.

well i suppose they are role models...Eve and hefty chick with the leg tattoo have no talent and slept their way to where they are, so it gives all the girls who have no talent or charm to aspire in marrying a baller or rapper and acting a fool to make something of themselves. And now i see the concept of reality tv as a stepping stone for legitimate work in the entertainment industry, look at Nene and Tamar, they both got acting jobs out of acting a fool on Tv. Fuck talent!

Evelyn>Ratchet101 in session- this lady threw a bottle because Kenya called her "loose". You're quick to say others need to own who they are- what about you? I didn't care for you in the beginning. However, I really lost respect for you when I saw how your mom is living- while you lay it low & spread it wide for millionaires. Take you gutter ass back to school and finish this time- ok? I don't give 2 fucks about any of these women clothes, red bottoms, fake boobs, pumped asses, Hermes Birkin bags, etc- they're all trash!

I don't mind watching these

I don't mind watching these trainwrecks on tv but last time i checked, you're not a role model for spreading your legs to the highest bidder. I don't know why kandi would even be on the cover becuz she isn't as vocal as these chicks or a trainwreck. I guess nowadays strippers and jumpoffs get more attention and praise than colleg educated women, who got their own smh

Evelyn maybe you should always STFU, because you have apologized to a lot of people from the things you say and do, better yet get lost bit&ch and go find a real job. Stop jacking people style like the way you swagger jacked jennifer for wanting to do a make up line. I wish your tired a$$ just disappear. You are a non factor, you have nothing going on that is longevity. Take your old a$$ back to school and become relevant like Star Jones.

lol yet another reason I've

lol yet another reason I've given up on reality shows broadcasting black women in an ignorant low-class light. Yes, Chrissy makes a point that we can go to the corner store or school and see foolishness and coonery, but the difference is, we're not supporting it by tuning in to see that crap every week. If we run across it in REAL life, fine. But I will NOT put money in these ratchet heaux pockets and the advertisers that run ads during the shows by tuning in. These heaux think we're stupid with all these excuses about why they're justified, blah blah blah. At the end of the day, they're laughing and fame whoring all the way to the bank...and that's ALL it's about. Of course, they have to say SOMETHING to make it look better or sound better. Stupid is as stupid does. I'm not stupid enough to support any of the shenanigans.

If you think about it VIBE

If you think about it VIBE putting on the front of their magazine that these classless ass women are role models feels to me like they're just mocking them or making fun of them. So in all actuality they are the ones with egg on their face because they KNOW they are nowhere near no damn role models!
