    WOO!…big fan of the show, but….how many episodes does it have for season 3?

    It must hve 14 episodes then if it ends next Monday!…it’s a no brainer, it is hugely up on last season and the loss of Stacy Dash had zero effect.

  • Melanie

    Congrats, great show!

  • Ram510

    I wonder why it took so long for them to announce this

  • panda22

    @ Ram510….my guess is VH1 wanted to see the season ratings in full + it’s easy and quick to make, they don’t need to start production on season 3 until the end of the year, it’ll air next May….so they have plenty of time.

    Consider Falling Skies, due to Moon Bloodgood being preggers they have to start shooting TODAY!….because she’ll pop before the season would be shot otherwise.

    @panda22

    didn’t know she was pregnant, but don’t think they would have to rush considering the character is pregnant and the gap between first and second season timeline wise.

  • panda22

    @ Martin….she’s already six months preggers!…they will have to do a time jump.

    Awesome second season can’t wait til third season begin

  • Valerie

    I absolutely live the show!!!!!! The season was super quick!!! Actually much too quick. Hopefully we can get more shows next season!

  • Brown007

    I Love this show and the real life situations they talk about!!!:) Good Luck I can’t wait for season 3!!!!

  • darci

    Does anybody know when Season 3 starts? All the articles I read just say sometime in 2013…I need to know now aaaaah especially since they left us hanging like that at the end. Hopefully sooner rather than later, I don’t think I can wait until next June!

    Also, loved the music in this season ender, especially the song that played when April says how she’s going to miss the girls, which I found out was “Best of Times” by a band called The Heaven Switch. Also was happy to hear MiaKoda’s “Better” play when Kaseem and Morgan are at the shop – Indulgence after their date, and “Turn In Your Bones” when the girls are at their apartment getting shoes for Morgan.

    Finally, got to say I’m really happy to see Keisha and Malcolm back together, sometimes it takes a break up to realize how good of a thing you have going and then to come back and appreciate it more. I wish them the best!
